Perfect for me

I have been using Lush henna for almost 2 years now. I absolutely love it! I feel like I have worked out a good system that what works for me. I have read a lot of the reviews and complaints about this product. I do believe there is a lot of misconception of what henna is. When I recommend henna to friends I always make them very aware of the commitment it takes to use henna. It's not a hair dye, it's a hair stain. Therefore the results vary greatly based on your individual hair type. Henna is best for those who want a subtle color change or to simply nourish your hair. I use it to get a beautiful shine and to keep my hair a glossy dark brunette. Obviously lighter hair color will show the results much better than darker shades. Henna is VERY messy and VERY time consuming. I do believe they mention that the more times you use henna the better your results, which is very true. I used Rouge for a year and have now switched to Noir. I have naturally dark hair, so it took at least 4 applications to lighten my hair to a redder hue. From there it continued to get lighter, now that I've switched to Noir, it is more of a dark cherry. Which I LOVE. My brother used the Rouge on his dark blonde hair and his result was flaming red! Since using henna, my hair has grown at least 8 inches within a year, which is unheard of for me. I also limit heat on my hair as well as only washing with natural shampoos once a week. Granted this may not work for everyone. With henna, it takes time to find that place that works best for your hair type. Like I said before, it's a commitment. I will always recommend Lush henna to anyone who wants to stain your hair. It's far better than using harsh chemicals! If you are searching for a quick color change for dark hair, henna is not for you. Lighter natural colors will show much stronger and quicker.

-12/10 would NOT recommend

Instructions seemed simple, and I researched with lush videos, lush website instructions, and even other customers inputs. Saw some mixed reviews, but was gonna give it the benefit of the doubt. Waste. Of. Precious. Time. First of all, grating and chopping the henna dye is a HASSLE. The product, just like other lush products, should be READY TO USE RIGHT AWAY. Not like I need to get ready to cook or prepare for something that has been shortened to simple and easy steps by other hair product industries. Second, the ever-loving MESS this product makes! I mean, for real. It's not enough that I need to expend a lot of time and energy to make and use this product but clean up the DUST and flakes before, during, and AFTER the application of the dye?!?? Third, and I can't mention this enough... TIME. Did the recommended 4 HOURS to let the hair dye set. Result? No change. ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGE. Hair wasn't even softer or anything, but NO COLOR CHANGE??? It defeats the exact purpose this product was made for. Now, I understood at the beginning that the product may not produce the "exact or best results" that a customer would like for them to have. Received information from both Lush employees and reviews. But still, there was supposed to be SOMETHING. ANYTHING positive that showed the product WORKED. Nope. All it did was result in waste of time, extended and unnecessary preparation AND clean-up. Will go back to Lush and request for an exchange or refund. P.S. Sorry if this is already too long, but if you are preparing to use this product just to "give it a try"? Be prepared for flakes still falling out of your hair after already trying to wash off the dried up hair dye from your scalp and hair strands. After you dry your hair, be prepared to wipe down your bed and floor of it. If you want to waste your time in letting the dye set in for 1 - 4 hours, it's up to each person. Just saying there will really be no change or result worth the effort and time put into this.

Too much work for the result

Rapid City, SD | 3 months ago

Literally spent a good 5 hours of my life on this product that made my hair *maybe* one shade different. And getting the product to a useable state is incredibly difficult. I used a cheese grater to make a powder, which I have thick hair so getting enough was a process in itself. Then apply the goop the my hair, and let it set for 4 hours. I was only going to do 2 hours because I'm impatient but I went the whole 4 hoping for the best result. Now, I did get moisturized, shiny hair. What I did not get was beautiful dark blue/black hair. And rinsing it is a monumental pain also because it leaves little pieces of what looks like henna dandruff in your hair. I'll honestly probably use the rest of the block since I already paid $30 for it but I definitely won't buy it again.

It was a waste of 4 hours

So I didn't read the online review prior to buying this product in store but even after reading the mixed reviews I thought to give it a try. I applied it according to the method used in the YouTube video. I waited and waited and waited and NOTHING. My hair is the same color as when I started. I wish I could have my $$$ back so I can put it towards a new color.

I have been using this product for a couple of years.

I use this in a powder form and it works great. After using a cheese grater, it is easy to get the right consistency after adding liquid and I only use what I need. A block lasts me for months. Makes my hair look great.

NO definitely not! I wasted my money and Time on this

New York | 4 months ago

NO No No not buying this product again. Waste of money. This product washed off immediately and didn't leave a stain. Such a scam! One star is too much. It deserves zero or below zero.

I have used this successfully to cover gray hair for years

I am super allergic to chemical hair dye, last chemical dye job put me in the hospital. But now that I am over 50 my medium brown hair has gone about 50% gray, a change I am not wanting right now. So I tried the Lush Noir product and have been happily using it for a couple of years now. Covers the grays beautifully, leaves my hair medium brown with shiny highlights of chestnut and dark coffee woven in. Well worth the hassle, time and mess of applying and washing product out. I get lots of compliments on my hair color, shine and condition. And very natural looking. I don't get the gray roots or obvious dyed hair look that you can get with chemical dyes covering gray hair. People just think I have not started going gray yet! My hair is very fine and limp but this product helps give body.

Doesn't work

I'm allergic to hair dye so I use natural products. I'm a frequent lush bath bomb shopper so I trust the brand a lot. The store I went to, I asked if it actually would work. The worker was nice enough to give me her own advice on how to use it. I followed her advice + instructions to a T. First off, the henna immediately dried after putting it in my hair. I don't know if I got a bad batch but this did NOTHING to my hair. My hair is chocolate brown and after the henna NOTHING. No black. Not even a tint. Waited for oxidation and nothing. I'm not sure if I got a bad batch, perhaps it's been sitting in the store too long or I'm not sure. It just doesn't work and for $30 it's not worth it.

So Simple!

Follow the instructions and you'll get results. Just chop it up, add boiling water which dissolves the chunks. Smash it into your hair in sections, make sure all strands are covered or you'll get missed spots. Leave on for 4 hours, no need to cover ( hairnet, towel around neck). I put mine in many lil buns, held with clips, for 3 hours, loosened buns over sink, wrapped hair flat around my head to allow it all to dry. Rinsed out, def. was greasy so needed shampoo. Let air dry and voila, shiny soft darker hair! Not quit pitch black, not really blue hue but def darker than my natural color. See pics.

Didn't work

Toronto | 6 months ago

I've always had a sensitivity to the harsh chemical smell of most box dyes, and I'm paranoid about wrecking my hair with chemicals. After doing a bit of research, I decided to try this product. I wasn't completely sure how it would work with my hair, but I was willing to give it a try. I'm a bit too young to have a proper job, so thirty dollars was fairly expensive for me. Although I've used Lushes products before and have always been pleased, so I saved up in order to try the Noir Henna hair dye. Now, I can't put all the blame on Lush. I have to admit, I didn't do a strand test. My hair is also a fairly dark brown, as well as some parts of it that were dyed blue but had since faded. The product said to put it into clean dry hair, so a few hours prior to using the product I showered and used only shampoo, hoping that it may help it stay in. As a lot of the reviews suggested, I grated the block instead of simply cutting it into chunks. It came out almost more like a powder than what you'd expect from a grater, but I went ahead with it anyways. While cutting it and mixing the product, I noticed that it does have a very strong scent. Its a really earthy smell, honestly it was quite pleasant. I left the product in for around four hours and ten minutes, then showered to get it out. It took a while to get all the product out of my hair, and I ended up washing it twice. After letting my hair dry, I looked in the mirror and noticed that there had been little to no change in the colour. If anything, it looked brighter, which was the opposite of what I'd wanted. The package says to allow up to two days for the colour to develop, so I did. It has now been about three or four days since I dyed my hair, and there's been no change in pigment at all. if anything, the brown parts have the slightest blue-green tint, but that's all. Considering the price and the amount of time I had my hair covered with this, I expected at least some results. Needless to say, I'm disappointed.
