Apply your henna with precision
Lush have collaborated with @BambuuBrush to create a vegan, sustainable tint brush (£7.00 / €9.00 each) to apply your henna with precision! Launching alongside Lush’s new and improved Henna range, the tint brush is made from bamboo.
Most tint brushes are made from plastic and inevitably end up in landfill at the end of their lives. Using bamboo instead reduces the amount of plastic that goes into landfill. When cared for properly, your tint brush should last you years of henna applications. But should it reach the end of its use, it can be disposed of in your compost, just be sure to remove the bristles first.
When the Lush buying team approached @BambuuBrush founders, Tommie and Rebecca, they had never created a tint brush before but this was an opportunity they could not turn down! Tommie worked with their team to design and created a bamboo tint brush; after a number of alterations and a few expert inputs from the Lush HairLab team in Poole, the perfect shape was created!
Once the tint brushes are manufactured, they are given a coat of cruelty free Carnauba Wax which protects the bamboo with its natural porous attributes from henna straining.
One simple change away from plastic, vegan and Lush HairLab Stylist approved!
