For a while now I’ve been doing some research on Henna and Indigo to dye my hair. I decided to go for it when I was looking around in the Mehandi website. They sell 3 grams of Henna and Indigo for only $1.50 each and the main reason why I decided to give these samples a try is because their henna and Indigo is used for body art, which is not dangerous like other black henna (indigo) which contains PPD. PPD is known for causing negative reactions to your skin when used to create body art. When you order these samples you do not have to pay for shipping and handling. So, I decided to give Henna and Indigo a try on a few strands of hair and see if it would really dye my hair black. I followed the directions step by step as mentioned in their website and to my disappointment the strand test I did did not turn darker. I had some reddish undertone on the top part of the hair I was dying and it did not turn black. : ( I was hoping to give you all some good news about this natural way of dying your hair but it did not turn out the way I expected. Henna and Indigo is not only used by many people to dye their hair black but Henna is also known for conditioning hair and leaving it soft, shiny and healthy. Using Henna alone will turn your hair somewhat auburn/reddish and using Indigo alone will turn your hair a mossy green. I am still not going to give up on the idea of using Henna and Indigo. I am simply going to keep looking online for a place with good quality henna and indigo and cheaper prices. The prices at Mehandi are way too expensive for me. I think if I would’ve done it on my whole head I would’ve seen some kind of results.
