    Default Indigo without Henna on dark hair

    I know you are supposed to use henna first, but what if the hair in question is already black(some parts dark brownish due to the sun) and you just want that blue-black look?

    I had a friend with dark brown hair who dyed it with only indigo and got a beautiful black raven colour Worked fine apparently!

    I would imagine the porosity of your hair would have an effect on whether it sticks. Generally, from what I have heard, indigo will not stick to unhennaed hair in *most* cases. There are some cases that have had success, I don't think the effect was permanent though.

    I have used indigo alone and with henna, both multiple times. I find that it doesn't take to my hair, and is gone within a few short days. However I've never experienced any damage, and while it's there the color is great. (I have dark hair). So I'd give it a strand test to start with, and maybe the worst that will happen is it fades fast and you've lost a little bit of money...
