Are you concerned about the chemicals that are used in synthetic hair dyes?
Henna, Indigo are naturally occurring dyes obtained from plant powders. They have been used for thousands of years to dye hair and are not new inventions. Leaves of some plants have natural colour, which when applied to hair give different shades. Our Henna & Indigo have no additives, metallic salts, PPD, or ammonia and is Australian Certified Organic.
Unlike artificial dyes, a standardised colour cannot be obtained using natural dyes, as the final colour depends on your natural hair colour and how your hair absorbs the dye.
When buying a natural hair dye, look beyond the claims of "no ammonia", "no peroxide", "herbal henna"– look at the ingredient list. If it is a pure, natural plant powder, the product should list botanical names such as Lawsonia Innermis (Henna) or Indigofera Tinctoria (Indigo). If there are any other additives, research before you buy.
Indigo is a leaf powder that has a natural blue dye, so do not use indigo dye directly on grey hair, unless you want bluish-green colour. However, when Indigo is mixed with Henna, you can get different shades ranging from mid-brown to black.
Indigo is a much less stable dye than henna and releases dye much more quickly than henna. Therefore the indigo paste should be mixed just before applying to the hair.
Sometimes Indigo is sold as black henna. If the product is a bright green powder then it is most probably natural Indigo powder. If the colour varies from brown to black, then it is definitely not pure Indigo powder and has additives.

Henna is a natural hair dye which contains a red-orange pigment called lawsone. For the natural colour to be released it needs to be mixed in an acidic medium and left to rest for at least for 6 hours. Henna dye works by binding with the keratin in the hair. As the henna dye bonds with hair, it does not easily fade or change colour. With every application the henna dye coats the earlier colour, thereby changing the depth of the colour, giving your hair a deeper richer tone.
Henna is a long lasting natural hair dye. If you henna your hair only once, it may lighten only a few shades from its peak color. To strip the reddish-orange color of henna off your hair, you will have to get it done chemically or just let your hair grow out.
If you have natural dark coloured hair, Henna dye will combine with your natural hair colour to provide red highlights. Pure henna powder will not give other shades. There is no such thing as natural brown henna or blonde henna. Blonde, Brown, Mahogany or Auburn henna are pre-mixes and is not 100% henna powder.
Our Henna powder is organic, pure and has no additives, PPD, synthetic dyes or metallic salts.
Henna can be combined with Indigo or Senna to get different shades.
