For brown hair use henna + indigo. Prepare henna paste in advance according to instructions. When ready, mix indigo in a separate bowl with lukewarm water; leave aside for no more than 10-15 minutes and add to henna paste. Stir well; add some more water if necessary. Apply thoroughly to dry or damp hair, wrap in shower cap and towel, and leave on for 2-6 hours.
For brown hair use equal parts of henna and indigo. 100g total mix will colour hair about shoulder length. For darker brown use 2/3 parts indigo and 1/3 part henna.
For black or very dark brown hair - two-step recipe:
First apply previously mixed henna paste for a deep red base. Wash away after several hours and towel-dry hair.
Mix indigo with lukewarm water; add 1 tsp salt for stronger colour. You might also like to add 1 tbsp honey for easier application of the indigo paste. Apply on dry or damp hair, wrap with shower cap and a towel, and wash away in 1-2 hours.
