    I've read it now. Thank you for the site! Would it be OK if I mixed a little bit of Manic Panic's After Midnight Blue with it?

    I'm not certain what henna would do if mixed with commercial dye like that. I know you can put it OVER commercial dye, and you can use commercial dye AFTER henna...

    just to be safe, it might be better to use the Manic Panic after you do the henna or indigo.

    I have done this, and it worked fine. I just added the manic panic to my henna/indigo mix. Next time I might henna first, then do indigo + manic panic for a darker shade.

    I don't know if it's truly possible to get blue black with henna and indigo. My hair has multiple layers of henna, so even with indigo on top some red always comes through.
    Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.
