Meet the Maker | Inside Scoop

Meet the Maker | Inside Scoop

I have been having a ton of fun taking part in March’s Meet the Maker. I found out about it from a fellow henna artist on her IG feed @alchemyhenna and she’s also a client of ours here at Henna Sooq. Joanne Walker founded the idea and has all the details laid out on her IG @joannehawker. We’re now half way through the month of March (almost!) and I’ve share behind the scene photos, along with really opening up about the brand, the vision and my life. It came at exactly the right time. This is therapy I don’t have to pay for 🙂 Here are a few posts that you told us were your favorites. For more, head to our IG page @hennasooq Day 8 | Where did Henna Sooq journey from and to? Back in 2005, I took a henna workshop with a well known artist in Montreal (where I’m originally from) and I was completely hooked. Starting out with some henna cones and 50 boxes of Jamila henna, Henna Sooq was born. In 2008, we moved to Toronto which was even more of a henna hub. I was busy with indian weddings, festivals and my first wholesale account @honey_fig . Sadly we had to move back to the USA in 2010, leaving behind our Canadian friends, family, our first house and many clients. I miss the days when they picked up your composting. So we make the big move back to Maryland, which I do really love and we’ve been here ever since. Maryland is fun, diverse, artistic, hip and full of my favorites creatives. Day...

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo for Hair | Natural Hair Dye

Indigo is a natural Ayurvedic plant-based dye (vegan) that is used with henna to color hair reddish brown, brown, dark brown and up to black tones.  It lasts 4-6 weeks and will cover greys. In this easy step by step video tutorial, I make the process of using indigo easy. Mixing indigo correctly is very important to the henna coloring process. When indigo isn’t mixed properly, your henna coloring treatment usually won’t give you those rich coloring results. Common Mistakes Indigo is mixed with a cold liquid. Indigo must be mixed with a warm to hot liquid. Indigo is mixed with liquids other then water. Do not use other liquids when mixing indigo. Indigo is mixed with a heavy liquid such as yogurt, conditioner etc…Indigo does not work at all when mixed with heavy liquids such as these. Indigo is mixed directly with the henna powder. Mixing henna powder and indigo powder together at the same time won’t work since both need separate times for dye release. Indigo paste sits out for too long. Dye release for indigo is only 20-30 minutes max. Indigo is used alone. If indigo doesn’t have henna in it’s process either as a previous and recent hair application or directly mixed with henna paste then the outcome is a green hue on the hair. No patch test was done. Please always verify that you aren’t allergic to henna, indigo or ayurvedic herbs before using them. Do a small skin patch test to be sure.  ...
