Mixing pastes after dye release?
What (or how much) will be the difference between a two step application and mixing the pastes for a one step application. Does it work at all? Maybe sufficient for touch ups/roots? I was thinking of preparing the henna paste and after dye release adding indigo and applying.

A hennigo will result in shades of brown, depending on how much indigo you add to the henna. If there is too much indigo, the color may not stick as well as indigo binds best to a good amount of henna.

A two step results in black. If you're shooting for black results, your best bet is a two step.

Two step it is then (sigh). I need black. Thanks for the info.
