A natural alternative to achieving the perfect blue black hair color using Henna and Indigo 2-step process.

**EASY TO FOLLOW 2-STEP PROCESS***

*Wash hair before applying Henna (Strip hair entirely)
*Put Henna into bowl (packages usually come in 100g, I used 200g for my hair length)

*Put water into bowl with henna (preferably warm NOT hot water)

*(OPTIONAL) put a bit a lime, lemon juice or sea salt in mixture to release dye

*(OPTIONAL) add alma powder to prevent loosening of you curl pattern if you're a loose natural

*Mix well...Mixture should be thick like pancake batter

*Cover and let Henna sit out  at least 30 min(DO NOT REFRIGERATE)

*Dye release 5-12 hrs (THE LONGER THE BETTER)

*Cover floors and counters before application

*Apply to hair from roots to ends

*wrap with clear wrap OR plastic bag 

*15 min prior to washing out henna..... mix Indigo (FOLLOW SAME STEPS)


TIPS:
*Make sure you keep powders in hair for as long as possible... 
 -Henna 2-12 hrs
 -Indigo-2-6hrs

*cover the bathroom or area that you are applying product...stains will become permanent if left on surface too long

* Use gloves...will stain hands for a few days

*Recommended that you co-wash before you apply henna

*when washing products out, use conditioner (cheap conditioner)

*Hair needs to oxidize...the color will enhance after 24-48 hrs
