Still ginger

Oshawa | 1 month ago

I just used this for the second time, see my previous comment under the same name. This product turned my hair a bright red. I look like a natural ginger. At first I thought I read the instructions wrong because I left it wrapped in plastic. But I tried it a SECOND time, unwrapped for 4 hours. And my hair looks identical. So disappointed. I'm distraught. I want my hair to be brown but you can't use hair dye over henna so I'm stuck with it. I don't know what to do. I might buy noir because maybe it'll darken my hair enough so I don't look like a firetruck anymore. Please test it on a small section of your hair first before you commit.

Be careful & follow the directions

Oshawa | 1 month ago

In the printed instructions, it says that you can wrap your hair for a "warmer tone" which is more than true. I thought it would mean a reddish brown, not realizing that it would result in the brown not developing. I used a plastic hair wrap to keep the messy dye off my closed thinking it wouldn't make that much of a difference. I was very wrong. It turned my hair red. I look like a natural ginger. Heed the warning on the website about exposing it to oxygen if you want actual brown. I'm going to buy more to try to finally get my hair brown. But honestly, if you're looking for a natural ginger colour- it looks beautiful. I didn't want red hair so it's not for me, but it's better than box dye in that respect. My hair is also soft, evenly coloured and healthy looking. It's a lovely colour, just not what I wanted. Rated 3 stars because I would have wished the warning about the red was more clear on the physical package. I'll follow the directions this time and write another review once I see the results.

Beautiful shade to cover up highlights - just what I wanted

Pittsburgh PA | 1 month ago

My hair is naturally light brown but I've gotten it highlighted to blonde for almost a decade. Hard to keep that habit up in the pandemic, so I dyed it with the caca (lol), used half the block and left it in around 3 hours. Perfect coppery shade, still bright, closer to my natural hair color but way more interesting. Very pleased!

Messy and did not last more than a day

Ottawa | 2 months ago

I have shoulder length curly brown hair, some white hair dispersed. It took 8 weeks to get the product (because of the pandemic). It was extremely messy, I used half the block and left it in for 4 hours. It was very difficult to remove in the shower as well. Once out, the colour was rich and beautiful. The next morning, without a wash, the colour was fading away and now 4 days later still no wash, its completely gone. Very very disappointed and I'm wondering if I did something wrong but there chat cue is so long. Too bad never again

Safe product, loved the results

New Hampshire | 4 months ago

If you watch the videos, people spend an hour grating six blocks with a cheese grater (I didn't). I have very long hair and only used 2-3 of blocks at a time, which I chopped with a knife. I love that this gave my hair a natural color, and it seemed to cover my wisps of grey. My hair felt smooth and healthy, but the product loses a star because the mess is a nightmare, no matter how well you think you're containing it, and the price is a tad outrageous. It would be nice if Lush offered a smaller, single-use sample size option for less money. It was such a hassle to do this on my own that I did it twice, and never again. I haven't found a natural product with better results though, so may consider buying again.

Wish i could give it 6 stars

TX | 4 months ago

Worked amazingly. I'm in my 20s with lots of gray and looking for something to cover them without the cancer risk. I have medium length hair, so I used 1/2 a bar and left it on for a little under 3 hours. I left uncovered to dry and it turned out just slightly richer than my natural color without the grays. Will buy again.

The main reason I bought this henna is because I want to avoid toxic chemicals. I did a big investigation before I found your product and my efforts were not useless. I really like everything in this product: smell, ingredients,... I mixed 2 colors: brun and maroon and I got the color that I expected to. Also, my husband was dying my hair... I found it was a good time to spend together and talk ))) no need to schedule appointment with the hairdresser and to drive somewhere. You got natural color and healthy hair at home. Lush, thank you so much for doing so amazing work. I have already recommended your products to a few my friends ❤️

Scalps Happy!

Orange,Ca | 5 months ago

I've been dying my hair for a few years and noticed my scalp was irritated and flakey. One lush visit changed that and I've been a henna fan since! Henna is a wonderful dye alternative and is very healthy for your scalp! Depending on the color you want you can either wrap your hair for a lighter color or leave it unwrapped for darker tones. It looks beautiful and leaves your scalp feeling wonderful! Pair it with the avocado shampoo bar, or fair trade honey shampoo with the American cream conditioner not only will you have great smelling hair, but your scalp with thank you for it!

I would not recommend this product

Philadelphia | 5 months ago

I'm a naturally curly girl trying to cover grey hair and help relieve dandruff. I used this product about 5 months ago I was please with the results until my hair started to grow. I left the product on for about 2 hours as it says. My curly hair pattern is damaged it will no longer grow curly properly . It has 4 inches of new growth Some very very loose curly and most straight hair ( very very upsetting) and my hair follicles seem to be damaged from this product I used it in the past and also thinking back I noticed a difference. I absolutely do not recommend using this product and I will look into this further as my hair is not growing like it normally has in the past. I will never buy from this company again and I will continue to write bad reviews about this product

From Mousy to Chocolate

VA | 5 months ago

Verified Reviewer

Highly recommend! I have thick, shoulder-length, mousy brown hair. I cut up 2/3 of the BRUN bar, added boiling water and stirred until it was brownie-mix consistency. Then kept the bowl over a pot of hot water to keep it gooey. Applied to my scalp in sections, kept in for 5.5 hours, then rinsed out and conditioned (did not shampoo!). Didn't wash my hair for two days and now its a deep chocolate brown and I love it! The henna smell is still lingering 4 days later but hopefully it will fade :)
