Natural, organic, eco-friendly; some of the magic words of the new era. In the wake of the very many chemicals the individuals are getting exposed to, it seems to be the right time to put an end to the invasion of the chemicals.
What better way than to use natural products in our everyday grooming and styling! Well, hair is one of the important areas that requires special care and concern in the midst of the chemical and pollution attacks that it undergoes in everyday life. And, when it comes to coloring hair, either to cover the grey or to add new style, natural coloring agents always top the list. While henna has been a coloring agent traditionally, indigo is another significant natural coloring agent that works wonders on the hair.
Henna Dream presents you all the reasons to use Indigo for your hair.
Indigofera tinctoria, popularly known as Indigo, like the henna, is a natural dye which comes from the leaves of the indigo tincoria plant. Its use is majorly found in textile industry, printing and hair dyeing. The use of indigo for hair dyeing dates back to a minimum of 4,000 years. What’s unique is the blue shade, the characteristic feature of the indigo.
For this reason, indigo is mixed with henna to dye the hair. The blue shade, when mixed with henna, adds magic to the hair. And, if you are somebody looking for blacks and different shades of brown, then indigo is what should be added to your hair coloring regime. The indigo is can be used in two ways. Either the indigo is mixed with henna and applied to the hair directly or the hair is dyed first with henna and then the indigo is applied to the hair.
The shade of brown or black depends on the proportion of the henna and indigo used. For convenience, Henna Dream offers several products by pre-mixing henna, indigo with other ayurvedic herbs that help strengthen the roots and grow the hair.
Indigo powder is green in color, 100% natural and hence one of the safest options for dyeing the hair. Not just because of its natural characteristics, but also because the indigo is an ideal option for individuals allergic to chemical hair dyes. Most importantly, indigo does not contain any chemicals like PPD unlike the chemical hair dyeing agents and black henna. In addition to adding color, the indigo gives the hair a new shine and adds texture.
Store Indigo in a dry and a dark place. The Indigo mix, however, cannot be stored for a second use. Throw away the leftover paste.
So, are you ready to sport the indigo look?
