Since the beginning of this year I wanted to change my signature blonde hair back to something different. So in March I braved up and decided to become a redhead for the third time in my life. But normal hair dye wasn’t going to cut it for me this time. After seeing the damaging effects it had on my hair and scalp over the past few years, I decided henna was the best way to go.
Why did I choose to use henna? Not only do I know a lot about henna because of working at Lush, it’s just an overall top-notch option for anyone that’s looking to spice up their hair style. Henna, unlike synthetic hair dyes which penetrate the hair cuticle to change your hair colour, henna works like a varnish, coating the hair with a vivid and unique colour. I personally use Rouge henna from Lush which you can easily get from your local Lush store or online for £10.95. Lush henna is 100% natural, the henna itself is Persian and is sourced fairly. Each block has lots of lovely Fair Trade organic cocoa butter to condition your hair and give it that well deserved TLC! It doesn’t contain anything that isn’t going to benefit the hair, the scalp and the quality of your hair. Not many hair dyes out there can say that their product does that. Rouge is a fiery beauty as the Fair Organic lemon juice helps rejuvenate the hair and make sure that your hair is fabulously fierce! The powdered rosemary acts as a natural antiseptic and soothes the scalp. The dried leaves of the Persian henna plant are ground into a powder then mixed with cocoa butter. The henna blocks then acting like a deep, conditioning treatment to add weight to fly-aways, smooth static and promote gloss.
