Hi Chris,

What I recommend is a two step process. You would need to get a
natural and pure henna powder that stains very dark. The ones I
recommend are the ones I know about and sell. Either Kimia, which is
body quality henna powder or Ahmad which is hair quality henna powder
stain darker than the other henna powders. And you would also need a
dark brown herbal/henna hair colorant. The herbal/henna hair
colorants are henna powder mixed with another natural dye and
therefore produces the dark brown color.

First use the Kimia or Ahmad to bring down the color of the white.
Either will bring the hair down to a red. Then use the dark brown.
Most of herbal/henna hair colors have a hard time bringing the white
down to the same color of the rest of the dark hair. But, when you
use the natural henna powder first to darken the grey, the
herbal/henna hair colorant can bring it down from their to the color
you want. This process works well on dark brown or black hair.

If you are looking for indigo, I sell it on my website as well. But,
that is not the way I would go at it.

Hope this helps.
