Directions for use
For Black Colour - Make a wet henna paste by combining it with black tea or coffee.Divide your hair into small sections and apply the paste thoroughly from root to tip wearing hand gloves and leave on for at least an hour. Secure your hair into a bun and cover your head with a shower cap. After an hour, rinse the mixture off using water only. Now, add water to indigo to make a paste and apply it on hair. Rinse it off after an hour.
For Brown colour - Add coffee or tea powder to henna while soaking. You could also add indigo powder to wet henna paste just before applying to get a brown tone. Different proportions of henna and indigo can give you varying shades of brown. Indigo does not release dye the same way that henna does, so it must be mixed and used right away, or within 15-20 minutes.
