Indigo has been extensively used for dyeing textiles and colouring hair black naturally for ages. One of the oldest known dyes, Indigo powder doesn’t contain ammonia or PPD, or other chemicals present in most hair dyes as it is obtained from the indigo plant. The process of turning green leaves of indigo plants into blue dye happens through fermentation without any chemicals, hence the powder is completely safe to use. Since Indigo powder is obtained from a medicinal plant, its use is not just limited to dyeing hair black. Here are some of the amazing benefits of incorporating indigo powder into your hair care routine.

FAQs about Indigo powder

1. Are there any side effects of indigo powder?

Ans. There are no side effects to using indigo powder for the hair. But as is common with other natural ingredients, some people might be allergic to it. As such, if you are using it for the first time, do a patch test to rule out any allergic reactions.

2. Can you leave indigo powder in your hair overnight?
