    TiffPhares, thank you! I was intimidated by the two-step and would have preferred to do a hendigo instead. But after doing research, I felt pretty sure that hendigo wouldn't give me the hair color coverage I needed.

    Jane99 and cat11, thank you!

    I shampooed my hair today for the first time after rinsing out the indigo, and the color stayed. So thankful. A lot of indigo color ran out with the rinse after shampoo, and henna color ran out with the rinse after conditioner. However, looking my hair over after it dried, the color looks just the same as the first day, and it's much shinier now. Looks shinier, healthier and fuller in general.

    This month of December, I went indigo-heavy. Have not done henna at all in maybe 2-3 years, so I decided to re-start now that I am having a less traumatizing time in life.

    (Have noticed that I never cared to cut my hair short, except when dealing with awful things stemming during and after a bad marriage, with awful moments with child's health. I was always long-haired before that. I wonder if there is a connection between grief, extended sad situations, or trauma + women who always had long hair, getting their hair chopped off? I think it helps, psychically/psychologically (??) to have short hair, when dealing with awful things, somehow.


    As my hair has been cut short , I can do a lot of these henna/indigo treatments, and not use up a packet stilL!

    I used indigo with the 2-step method (in which, for the 2nd step, I mixed indigo + cassia),
    then a week or so later, did henna+cassia,
    and a couple of days ago, with henna (not a 2-step).

    I like the look of it more than plain henna on me.
    I love red hair, but with my skin (NC43ish) I was feeling a bit like a Troll doll before, when it built up (that time was years ago, and since then have had multiple pixie chops)


    I was only doing it to use up the Indigo I have had for a year and been too scared to use but it really is not intimidating on already dark brunette hair.

    It makes the henna not too red, and it does not become an ugly black on me either. With the henna and cassia it just looks rich brunette.

    I really like Indigo, man.
    It smells bad, to me, like flowers, but in a stomach-turning way,
    but ginger powder mutes the awfulness a bit.

    So, how often does one do this? And do you do a pure henna before indigo every time?

    I've grown tired of the henna color, red in my hair. I like black. I did dye my hair a dark brown (looks black) over the henna but id rather not use damaging dye if the indigo can give me the same results. The henna does bleed through the dye a bit when in sunlight. I dont mind it, looks good.

    If youre doing a two step, yes. Indigo needs henna to stick to. It wont bind well to the virgin hair of your roots, otherwise.

    You can always start with a one-step and see if it gets your hair dark enough.
