    What are you hoping to achieve with henna and indigo? Do you have a specific color in mind or is it more for strengthening your hair?

    I'd give the indigo a day or two. Sometimes henndigo is greenish until the henna oxidizes fully, and then that makes the green of the indigo disappear.

    I fixed it! Thank you so much for all of your help!

    I did 30 mins of Henna with about 1/3 indigo on the ends. I made sure to really saturate the hair in the back, and I took special care to blend into the crown so there wouldn't be a big line if the color came out too different. I think it looks really good. My length feels stronger, but it probably needs a deep condition after all of the washing, henna-ing, and blow drying. (I don't normally blow dry, but I was impatient to see the results)

    I am really happy with this color. I think I can easily maintain this now.
