To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was very pleased with my purchase of the Indigo. I did this as a two step process using another brand henna to achieve a rich black color. I am a relaxed 4b type, african-american with high porosity hair. After using the henna, which sat for an hour on my hair, I rinsed, and mixed together 1 tsp. of sea salt with the Indigo powder and added some green tea that I let steep just long enough while I rinsed out my henna. I added that and nothing else, and let it sit for an hour without heat; then I sat under a hooded dryer for 40 more minutes with heat, and rinsed. I used a cowash, and deep conditioned with a good moisturizing conditioner, glycerin, honey, and full fat yogurt mixed with olive oil. I sat under a hooded dryer for 30 minutes to get a deep condition and rinsed. My hair was incredibly soft and had a nice deep black color. Was so excited to see such wonderful results! Will definitely purchase this indigo again!
I wear virgin hair extensions & I hate the natural brown color that they arrive in. So I used this product ALONE, and let them sit in it for a few hours and it really does darken it naturally. The smell is "special", but I got past it. You can use conditioner to remove it.
I have used Zenia indigo for years. It comes well packaged. The powder is fine and consistent so it is easy to use. I combine it with henna to get the perfect Auburn highlights to cover my white. My hair is black so the auburn is much better than the pure henna red.
I color my hair for gray coverage with Henna and use Indigo to tone down the red. When I get ready to apply the henna, I mix a small batch of indigo and let it sit while I take a shower and wash my hair before starting the henna application. After I get out of the shower, I mix the indigo straight in the henna. Then I put the mixture in my hair and leave it in for 2 hours.
I am very satisfied with the results. It looks very natural.
