Benefits: Indigo is a source of blue dye. When fermented, enzymic hydrolysis transforms indican into indoxyl and glucose. When oxidized, indoxyl molecules form the blue Indigotin dye.
On its own, Indigo will turn light coloured hair a greenish to bluish colour, but not really show up on dark hair.
When mixed with henna in different ratios, indigo will help achieve deep auburns, browns and pure black.

I’ve used it for my step 2 for staining gray hair (step 1 being henna). It works perfectly. I love the products, thank you!
Fantastic Indigo product for my grey hair. i use the two step process with henna...
I'm so glad I found Henna Canada. The Indigo provides a wonderful stain just make sure that you follow the instructions and you won't be disappointed.
very happy with my purchase, came well packaged and I love to support small canadian businesses.
I began using these products from Henna Canada around 6 years ago when I experienced a terrible alergic reaction to commercial chemical hair dyes. I did try a few other henna products from other sources - none came close to these in quality! And the service is awesome! Thank you Lisa!
