My hair has been chemically dyed before but I started using Henna because it fades in a much more natural way. If you are trying to cover grays or dying noir from blond hair you should use the red henna first to have better results. It's messy and it takes a while but to me the results are worth it

Not seeing results

Toronto | 19 days ago

I've been using lush's caca brun and marron for years now and always had great results. They made my hair darker than my natural shade (which I wanted) and gave it a nice warm tone. I am now tired of the reddish so have been trying to go darker and cooler toned. The noir henna is just not making much of a difference. I have applied three layers and am not seeing the same results that I saw with brun and marron. If it is called the darkest shade it should be making my hair darker, but is not doing it as much as the brun does!

Great Conditioner! Not so great dye.

I have 4c, very dense hair (read: glorious afro!) . My hair lacked luster, and my greys are becoming more prominent. I didn't want to go the conventional dye route (my afro is dense, but delicate...very prone to breakage, and, I wasn't looking for a drastic change in hair color), so I figured that I would try the Noir henna. Melting and mixing the henna was a struggle, but, I got it the consistency of melted chocolate. 2/3 of the bar was enough to cover my entire head of hair, and have a little bit left over. I coated every strand of my hair generously, and let it sit for over 3 hours. I've read other reviews, recommending 6, but, again, my afro is delicate, and I didn't want to risk dryness or damage. Rinsing it out of my hair...also a struggle. Because my afro is dense, and my hair is very coily, it was a challenge rinsing out the gritty henna (it turns to grit once it dries). My tub was a mess! I used a cowash, shampoo, and a deep conditioner (though, in retrospect, I probably could've gotten away with the co-wash only.) I was still combing out grit when I twisted my hair! The result: minimal hair color change (overall, my brown hairs turned a little darker, and my greys are, well...still grey). I didn't get great grey coverage...not sure why, but it just didn't work for me, from a coloring perspective. As for the reason why I gave this 3 stars instead of 1: my hair is in better condition after the Henna treatment, than before. My afro is very well conditioned. I was also surprised at the very minimal amount of breakage after washing! I had to work out some tangles, but, that's to be expected with my hair type. I may add this to my hair routine 3-4 times a year, just for the conditioning properties.

For me it worked, my hair is very thin and curly but it didn't work on my bf, he has lots of greys and unfortunately it didn't work on his hair at all.

SF Bay Area | 1 month ago

I used to use this regularly a few years ago. I found that it covers my grey and I liked the way it made my hair look and feel overall, but you have to carve out a large chunk of time to apply and let its do its thing, and that became inconvenient. Now with COVID I have a lot more time at home and I found 2 chunks in my stash and decided to give it a whirl again. 1. I have bra strap length coarse hair and I've found that 1/3 of the bar is enough for my whole head. The whole bar is waaaaay too much for me, but that could differ if you have extremely dense thick hair. You have to play around with portions to figure out how much you need. 2. You don't have to shave it. Honestly, I just put the two blocks (still attached together) in a glass jar inside of a sauce pan filled with water on low heat and let them melt. I added hot water inside the jar and a little bit of coconut oil. It will melt, you just have to be patient. 3. It can be messy but not as messy if you cover your surface with an old dark towel or newspaper you can just throw away. I didn't bother to cover the floor but I probably should have because it can flake a little during application. You can just sweep the dry bits up but if it's moist you'll want to wipe it up quickly before it stains. 4. Wear gloves. Your hands will be covered in it. I also just use my hands to apply vs a brush. 5. For the darker shades you need to leave your hair uncovered for it to develop properly. It says this in the instructions but a lot of people cover their hair in plastic and then complain that they don't see the color. 6. You need to leave it on for a long time. Lush says 2 - 4 hours but I leave mine on for about 5 hours or more if possible. I used the last of my stash today, but I plan to purchase another bar and use this instead of conventional hair dye. Yes, you have to let it sit for hours, but since I'm working from home, I plan to slap it on in the morning and just let it process while I work.

Just, WOW

Austin, Tx | 2 months ago

I am amazed. I waited a year to try this because of my doubts. Once the grays started to really accumulate, I just decided to go for it, why not? Especially because I am super paranoid about traditional hair treatments; full of carcinogens and damaging chemicals. I had to look like a troll for three and a half hours, but oh my goodness: totally worth it! My hair is so soft, it covered all my grays and my scalp is finally in a comfortable state. It had been itchy and dry for months, no matter the treatments I gave. My hair is very fine and this henna dye is magical. I can not recommend this enough. It's part of my Lush tab indefinitely.

I will definitely buy this again

The only thing is the waiting time that is long. You have to have the day or night because it is long time to wait. First time I do this. My hair was medium brown with a little bit of purple.I have alot of hair and I have them a little down my shoulders. I use a grater to grate half of the block of Henna. I took the NOIR. I poured gradually a little bit of boiling water and whisk it for 5 minutes adding hot water gradually to have a smooth texture. Like melted chocolate. Applied generously on my hair and waited 4h30. without covering my hair, with a towe on my shoulders. I rinsed then put Lush conditionner, then shampoo twice then conditionner. again. My hait really took the color. My hair is super shinny deep dark brown with nice blue reflect. My hair looks and feels llike super healthy. The shine and the softnest is increible. I recommanded. One of the best product I bought here..

Love Lush's Noir

I have been using this product for about 6 months. I am so happy with it and will continue buying. I have used numerous henna products over the years and this is by far the easiest to work with, in my opinion. The color is not as intense as you might get with a 2 step process (henna first, then indigo), but the creamy paste it makes with the cocoa butter makes it so much easier to work with that I consider it a fair trade. I use 1/6 of a block on my roots, grate it with a cheese grater, and add hot water. I apply it to my roots with a paintbrush - I try to work relatively quickly because it does tend to dry out and you have to add more hot water. I put on a wig cap and then a sleeping cap and sleep with it in. I have found that after 6 months of use, my hair is a very dark brown/black (my hair was already a dark color and I just find it easier to keep applying at the top of my head only and it doesn't really fade significantly as it grows out).

New York, NY | 3 months ago

I was hesitant to use this product because of all the reviews claiming that it was pointless, but I'm glad I took the $30 risk. Noir gave me just what I was looking for! It made my my already dark brown hair just a shade or two darker--and super soft too, with fewer splits! The color definitely trends away from red, but I don't see a truly prominent blue-black tone either. It seems to have blurred the sun damage (brassy highlights, split ends, flyaways--remind me to wear a hat outside...) right out! I followed the directions loosely (using only 1/6th of the block; grating instead of cutting into chunks; no double boiler, only hot water; water down the paste a bit more than recommended) and left it in my hair for just over two hours, uncovered. I was in the sun for most of that time, which might've made some difference too. I painted it onto sections of my hair with a pastry brush (desperate times...), but next time I think I'll try making a very dilute slurry in a bowl and just dip my head into it? I wouldn't say the pastry brush method is too messy, but I was also careful to cover the bathroom counter with newspaper. It didn't dye my skin either. It's been 3 weeks and I haven't noticed any letup in the color or shine/smoothness yet. There's not enough difference in my natural color vs henna color to make any growth really visible at my hairline.

Does not cover gray hair

Ottawa | 3 months ago

I am a big fan of Lush but I am terribly disappointed in this product. It does not do anything that it says it does. I do not want to use chemical hair coloring products so I thought henna would be my resort. But even after setting it on my hear for over six hours then try to build up on it a week later with more six hours, I still can see gray hair. Although I don't have much of it but it's still annoying that I went through all this trouble with no results.
