Indigo Powder

The blue colouring agent is embedded in the nutritional content of indigo leaves. The compound responsible for the colouring action is called glycoside – a combination of glucose and Indoxyl. The dye is prepared by soaking the leaves in water and fermenting it. Once the glucose is absorbed by bacteria, Indoxyl (white indigo) is released, which further oxidizes into a rich blue dye. When preparing the powder, the leaves are partially fermented, sun-dried to a crisp texture and then powdered.

It is very much safe to use as it is derived from a plant and so chemical-free. Indigo Leaf Powder is an alternative to Hair Dye for all and mostly with the people who are sensitive and allergic to Hair Dyes. A Base coat of Henna and a Second Coat of Indigo gives a lasting Natural Black Color to the Hair.
