Hello Nikki! Here are the pics you requested along with the Henna/Indigo mix I used and step by step instructions.
- 50 grams of Jamilla 2008 Crop
- 50 grams of Amla powder (to prevent my curl pattern from loosening) mixed with a tea made from Distilled Water infused with Chamomile Leaf, Nettles, Horsetail, and Marshmallow.
I let the Henna mix sit for about 12 hours. I washed my hair with Kalpi Tone and Shikakai powders. Right before applying the henna, I added organic honey. I left the mix on my hair for 4 hours and rinsed with Nature’s Gate Aloe Conditioner.
Then, I mixed Indigo powder with warm water and a teaspoon of salt and applied it to my hair. I wrapped my hair with plastic wrap and then a towel and let that sit for an hour. I rinsed the Indigo with warm water (which took forever!) and deep conditioned with Aubrey Organics White Camilla Conditioner and Kokum butter. I then rinsed the conditioner out with an herbal rinse made from distilled water infused with Rosemary, Irish Moss, Nettles, Hibiscus, and Horsetail. Then followed that up with an ACV rinse.
I moisturize with my own herbal spritz mixed with aloe vera juice, glycerin, and panthenol. Add some whipped shea (or whatever butter I have whipped) and seal with Jojoba oil. I love the dark color from the Indigo. I almost gave up on Henna but after I contacted Catherine she suggested using Henna and Amla in a 50:50 mix because I had alot of curls loosening on prior Henna treatments. I love jet black hair but refused to use chemical dye. Overall, Im happy with the results!
