My hair is naturally dull brown. It has been chemically coloured countless times and I’ve recently bleached it as well, but I hated the end result ! I’m attaching 2 photos – taken last weekend of how my hair looked after my last lot of colour and bleach, and how it now looks after henna and indigo. While I’m a tiny bit disappointed that I couldn’t get the bleached highlights to deepen completely to brown, I absolutely love the overall result ! I was a little scared as I’d only used my last colour and bleach about a month ago, but I was so fed up with my colour that I was prepared to try so I jumped right in and I love henna and indigo ! I’m definitely going to stick with it. I love how it feels, smells, and colours – it’s fantastic ! I’m so grateful to you sabrina for introducing me to your product and for persuading me to give up on that chemical trash. It was amazing how the colour changed within a single day – initally the henna looked too red/orange but within hours it deepened to deep auburn and I actually started to like it, but thought I’d jump in and try out the indigo ! The bleached bits went a bit yellowy with the henna, but then got tonded down somewhat with indigo and as for the rest of my hair I love the shine, the gloss, and the deep brown with red bits underneath. This is an amazing product and I would recommend it to anyone even if you’ve just used chemical hair dyes or bleached your hair recently. Eternally grateful, Claire.
Hi Sabrina, I am absolutely amazed by the fantastic results of using henna and indigo. The results far exceeded my expectations. My hair is now a fabulous even, rich, liquid chocolate brown. There isn’t a flourescent orange hair in sight or any signs of brassiness. I will try to send you a photo soon. Please accept my new order, I can see I will be a very regular customer. I’m also spreading the good news to all my other women friends of a certain age! Best wishes, Katy
Please find attached some pics as promised:
1. before application
2. henna stage (1.5 h incubation); panic!
3. after indigo on the henna (20 min. incubation)
I used about 60 g henna (7 tablespoons), 40 g indigo (4-5 ts).
I did not add anything but boiling water (henna), lukewarm water (indigo), both Brita filtered.
Both henna and indigo were rather easy to apply. With the indigo, however, one must work rather quickly, because the colour sets so soon and becomes very dark after about 25 minutes. I covered the henna with plastic and wool; I left the indigo uncovered.
My normal hair colour was light chestnut, which has turned 90% white/grey. During some years I used Logona umbra (100% organic). However, with this my hair turned more and more copper-orange as the natural white increased. I was unhappy with the colour, coverage on outgrows decreased, but I refused to turn to chemical hair dyes.
I am very satisfied now with the result! A long-searched, excellent solution! Next time I plan to leave the indigo 5 min. longer at the front, but I do not wish my hair to turn too dark. Perhaps you have a suggestion?
One question: are the henna and indigo cultivated organically and sustainably? If not, are there future plans to do so?
Thank you so much!
Very best wishes and success!

God – how hard it is to photograph your own head, you will see I didn’t do too good a job but you are welcome to these. I opted not to use the indigo in the end. I used 150 grams of henna mixed with the advised volume of lemon juice and water and which I left standing overnight. My hair has been previously chemically coloured. Black ages ago and still visible on the bottom 2 inches or so and a burgundy brown in September which had faded somewhat and my roots were showing through (and the dreaded greys!). Henna was applied to dry hair (washed night before) and cling filmed and shower capped for 6 1/2 hours before rinsing. The grey ones are a shade of red but I like this and there aren’t what people would consider a lot (although I do!) Thank you, I will be ordering again soon. Kind regards, Dee x
