Description

The Urdu name for indigo powder dye is wasma or neel ka poda. Some people also call it vashma.

 

Indigo powder produces a range of blue hues depending on the concentration and method of application. It's often used in combination with Henna to get desired brown to black hair colour. 

Additionally, indigo powder is valued for its eco-friendliness compared to synthetic dyes, as it is biodegradable and non-toxic.

How to Use

 

 

 

Prepare the Henna Paste:

  • Start by mixing henna powder with water in a non-metallic bowl until you achieve a thick, yogurt-like consistency.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the henna paste sit for 6-8 hours or overnight. This process is called "dye release," during which the henna releases its color.

     

Prepare the Indigo Paste:

  • In a separate non-metallic bowl, mix indigo powder with lukewarm water to form a smooth paste. The consistency should be similar to the henna paste.
  • Let the indigo paste sit for 10-15 minutes to activate.

     

Apply the Mixture to Your Hair:

  • Wear gloves to protect your hands from staining.
  • Divide your hair into sections and apply the henna mixture evenly from roots to ends, using a brush or your fingers.
  • Once your hair is fully saturated, cover it with a shower cap or plastic wrap to prevent drying. 
  • If you want to achieve brown colour hair then wash henna after your hair turns into yellow to light brown in colour. Apply Indigo and keep it n your hair to get brown hair.
  • If you want to achieve black colour, then leave Henna for 2-6 hrs. Your hair will be dark orange in colour. Wash it off then apply Indigo. 

 

“Make sure your cover your hair every time you apply Henna or Indigo.”
