    Indigo without the henna step will give you a washed out green/blue/gray, it just can't grab onto hair well on its own.

    I took the plunge and finally tried indigo to try to cover some bad bleaching from a commercial hair dye (intended to dye my hair dark).

    First step, henna. I used Nupur henna mixed with black tea (Lipton Yellow Label if you want to know!). Mixed henna paste 8 hours before application. Left on overnight under a shower cap and microfiber hair wrap.


    12/5/20.

    Second step, indigo. I applied the indigo approximately 6 hours after rinsing out the henna and letting my hair air-dry. I used The Henna Guys indigo mixed with Lipton Yellow Label. Applied right away. Left on for three hours under a shower cap and microfiber hair wrap.

    Looks great! I love Nupur, it provides such a rich base for the indigo to latch onto.

    Thanks C_Bookworm and TatsuOni. All the pictures on this thread inspired me to go for it. I just hope the color is there to stay!

    Oh WOW! I love your softened black here. I am a hendigo user but have never done a two step. I always do a stagered one step or lately have been doing Light Mountain's Dark Chocolate because I'm lazy. But WOW I love your color here!
