So this weekend, I plan on doing my monthly henna treatment and this time.. drum roll please... following it with a dose of Organic Indigo. The Indigo will darken my henna, which currently gives me reddish brown highlights in the light. It was perfect for summer and fall, but winter calls for change. I plan on leaving the Indigo in for about 45 minutes (the longer you leave it in, the deeper the stain) resulting in dark brown/black shiny hair! I am excited! I love dark hair in the winter!
What do you think? I am excited to share my results! Please check back soon for updates....
Some Indigo History:
Indigo comes from the ground leaves of the indigo plant which contains a deep blue dye. The leaves of the plant are harvested, dried, and ground into a powder. In modern day, Indigo is most commonly used to dye jeans, but has been used as a hair dye for centuries and many cultures still use this as opposed to chemicals to dye hair. Indigo combined with Henna is a great ALL NATURAL replacement for modern chemical dyes and is non-damaging!
- Mix Indigo and Henna together, you achieve a medium brown to rich deep brown hair dye.
- Apply Indigo AFTER Henna application, you achieve rich, shiny black to jet black color.
- Indigo and Henna together cover grays. (click here for pictures!)
- Adds incredible shine to dull hair!
