Lush Introduce New And Improved Henna Range…

For 100% natural hair colour!

Twenty years after the invention of Lush’s henna brick, Lush HairLab Technician & Colour Specialist Daisy Evans has reformulated Lush’s cult henna range to give greater coverage and the best hair dye experience. For the first time, Lush will also be introducing a new shine-enhancing strawberry blonde shade to give warm, sun kissed tones to naturally blonde, light or white hair.

Natural hair colour with benefits

So much more than just hair colour, henna delivers a natural-looking colour without the damage of synthetic hair dyes. Henna coats the cuticle in a protective, translucent layer that boosts body and gives the shiniest results imaginable. Henna is both a treatment for the hair as well as a natural colourant!

Wrapped in 100% recycled paper packaging, Lush’s henna is vegan, self-preserving and 100% natural. By sourcing the best ingredients and keeping this product as naked as possible, henna is not only a natural choice but also an ethical one. 

“It has been very eye-opening to work with henna at Lush. From starting my career in hairdressing and becoming primarily a colourist, ‘henna’ in the hairdressing community was a scary word and has a bad reputation. It is known for being impossible to get off of the hair, and creating a lot of damage if you try to do so. BUT – it turns out what we all thought was ‘henna’ could actually have been numerous examples of a henna hair dye, where a lot of them are formulations of potent chemical dyes, which cause all sorts of reactions and complications when bleach or synthetic hair dyes are used afterwards. It is wonderful to have been able to fully understand the concept of these innovative hair dyes and to know that they are 100% natural. I would love to see Lush henna being considered by hairdressers as part of their toolkit, a beautiful example of a natural alternative to chemical hair colouring.” – Daisy Evans, Lush HairLab Technician & Colour Specialist

“Henna is also suitable for Afro hair and has a lovely protective effect on curl patterns 3A to 4C, especially if it is high porosity. It offers a gentle alternative to synthetic permanent dyes and a smooth consistency for ease of application on Afro hair and locs” – Sarah Sango, Lush Afro Hair Specialist
