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.

Cassia Acutifolia also called Senna gives a golden yellow highlight to grey or pale blonde hair. This is due to the presence of chrysophanic acid, a substance also found in rhubarb root, which is used to tint grey hair yellow. Senna will not colour dark hair, blonde. It will make bleached, damaged blonde hair silky and restore a golden color to dull or graying blonde hair.
When Senna is mixed with henna, the vibrancy of the red obtained from henna is reduced. Mix senna and henna to make shades of blonde, strawberry blonde and coppery red.
Our Senna powder is organic, pure and has no additives, PPD, synthetic dyes or metallic salts.
