A step-by-step guide to how to use Lush’s Henna Hair Dye in Caca Rouge colour, by an ex-Lush employee. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have in the comments section, or if anything wasn’t clear let me know!
Henna is the most healthy way to dye your hair, as rather than penetrating the hair’s cuticle it wraps around the outside of the hair, giving it a protective coating which adds loads of shine and moisture. Chemical dyes penetrate the hair cuticle and destroy the hairs natural pigment, which causes the cuticle layer to spike up, causing dry, brittle hair.
YOU WILL NEED:
Henna block (colour of your choice)
Gloves (or bare hands if you are zero waste)
Bain marie & spoon for stirring
Cling film (or an old towel/shower cap if you are zero waste)
Ultrabland or vaseline to put around your hairline ***IMPORTANT: apply this all around your hairline before you start to stop your skin becoming stained!***
TOP TIP: I like to put tin foil on top of the cling film, and once every hour or so heat up the foil with a hairdryer! You can also wrap a towel around your head to keep the heat in. The hotter the henna, the brighter and more intense the red colour will be.
