I love this product

I use this henna for years and my hair look healthy and shiny. Moreover I noticed my hair grow faster and I don't have split ends. I see some reviews that it is difficult to distribute henna thoroughly your hair it doesn't melt in a hot water easily. That's just the way I do and it works for me.. I add henna to water and melt it in a sauce pan on a stove using fork to break down little chunks. I dont make it too thick so I can easily apply on my hair. Also I wash my hair with shampoo twice and use conditioner only on my ends since my hair are very fine . Henna will never give a color from one time use. You have to use it all the time to layer it over and over. If you want a result you just need to be patient .

I'm coming back to review after using REAL henna

I wanted to love this so much. I tried it 3 separate times and it was a nightmare each time. I had to chop the bars up as finely as possible (the salesperson recommended a food processor.. for a hair product...), laboriously double boil it, and apply the warm mud to my hair. It was awful. It was so sticky and while it looks smooth it remains inexplicably chunky no matter how finely you chopped it. Literal chunks of leaves stick to your hair. It's impossible to work with. And, to top it off, it made the already red parts of my hair *just barely* redder and did absolutely nothing to the roots. My hair is BLONDE and it did nothing. It's also a nightmare to try to wash out and for days your hair will feel heavy from the huge amounts of Cocoa butter that hold these squares together. Henna is not supposed to be used this way.. prepared and stored on a shelf for months. It has almost no dye in it by this point. PLEASE don't make my mistake, buy quality, body grade henna POWDER, mix it with just warm water and a little apple cover vinegar, wait 12 hours, and it will go on your hair like butter and give you a gorgeous color. You can actually see the dye release with actual henna. It was so easy to rinse out too! And one bag will give you many uses at a much cheaper price.

First time ever using henna!

Peoria, IL | 28 days ago

The only time I had my hair dyed chemically was when I got a red balayage last year. My hair is naturally very dark brown, and while I liked the red balayage, it was expensive, and it didn't last that long. I decided to try henna, and I love the results! My hair is extremely thick, so I used the whole block of henna on my hair. It was a really messy process. The cheese grater method worked great to make the henna into a powder. After that, I added the powder to hot water and applied it all over my hair. I had to have a friend help me wrap my hair in plastic wrap. I left it on for 5 hours. After 5 hours, my friend helped me wash my hair, as the muddy and gritty texture of the henna made it difficult to get out. I read not to use shampoo right after using henna. We initially rinsed out my hair with just water, and it felt super stiff and dry. Overall, we washed my hair out 3 times over the next few hours after letting conditioner soak into my hair for a while, and we got all of the grittiness out. The color definitely shows up on the ends of my hair more (I think where the balayage was). I'm going to dye my hair with this color again and see if I can get a stronger red color. Right now the color is a subtle copper/auburn color. It's not a huge difference to me, but the color is pretty. I've already received some compliments about my hair color, and people seem surprised when I tell them that it's henna. I just washed my hair with shampoo and conditioner for the first time since I dyed my hair, and my hair feels super soft and healthy. I read one review where the lady leaves her henna on all night and then rinses it out in the morning. I might try that next time. I will definitely be ordering this product again!

Great product

I have been using this for several years. My hair is naturally a strawberry blonde but as I have gotten older, 60now, it just faded to a pale blonde. I heat this in a double boiler then my husband applies it for me with a small hair dye brush , the brush really helps to get an even dye job. I leave it on 20-30 minutes ( I do not wrap my hair in plastic as it makes it too bright for my taste); then wash it out and I get a beautiful red color that brings out my natural highlights. This is almost the same as my natural color. It is somewhat messy but with husband's help we have got it down to an art. I love this henna!!

PEOPLE ASK

Columbus Oh | 1 month ago

I have natural red brown hair I wish I could give you a more high maintenance answer. But I cant. This henna does all that for me. It gives my red more demonsion than I thought possible. In the sun my hair legitimately BURNS I love it. And in contradiction to most I have mixed EVERY henna lush has. I love the second "most red" with the deepest "almost black'. It surprises you and makes the clerks nervous lol but it gives me hair SO MUCH depth. I used to be a RELGIOUS hair dye girl. But this product makes my hair GLOW. and I shameless enjoy how effortless it is.

Bad Choice for Natural Redheads

star-star-filled star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty star-star-empty

Raleigh, NC | 1 month ago

I am natural redhead. As I've gotten into my 40's, my hair color has started fading in some sections to blonde or white. I have never colored my hair before and am cautious about using products with harsh chemicals, so I decided to try this henna to bring back some pizzazz. Firstly, this product is hard to use. It doesn't melt evenly and leaves a lot of small clumps. When it goes on, hair is too matted to be combed through, so it's difficult to get an even distribution of color. Maybe throwing it in your food processor or grating it would help it melt better and give the mud a better consistency; just chopping it up with a knife is not adequate. It also makes an absolute mess. It's similar to cleaning up cake batter that's splattered all over your kitchen in an electric mixer mishap, except that those little globs can stain, so better work fast. I definitely recommend completely draping your bathroom in drop cloths before you get started. Secondly, the color is not at all natural. It is not a pretty copper toned 'red'; it is very bright orange. If you are going for a circus clown look, it's perfect. If you're a redhead just looking to enhance your natural shade, don't use this. I'm patiently waiting for this to fade, so that I an correct it with a powdered henna that is formulated specifically for natural gingers. Hopefully, that will yield a better result.

I have pretty short hair, so I was able to get two dyes out on one bar. I love how copper my hair is and it does not washout the way chemical colours do. I also love the smell and watching the how to YouTube video made using the product so easy. Pretty sure I'll never go back to normal hair colour. I recommend buying a hair mask to use after you wash your hair out.

I will not buy this product again

Fresno, CA | 1 month ago

I have been buying this product for years. However, in the last 6 months - this product has not been producing good results. In the last 4-5 years, I would use Rouge Henna once every 6-9 weeks. In the last 6 months, the color would not absorb in my hair. I started using Henna once every 3 weeks and it was still not absorbing as it would before. Before, the color would give me a great vibrant red look, and now.. n o t h i n g! Soo disappointing. I don't know if the ingredients have changed? But, this product is no longer worth my money.

Gorgeous Red Glow Up!!

San Diego, CA | 2 months ago

For most of my adult life, I have dyed my hair red. When the pandemic hit, I couldn't get it colored. Over the year, all my chemically treated hair grew out and I cut it. I loved how healthy my hair was now, but missed my red. This henna is the best of both worlds. I got my red hair back and got to keep my hair healthy and undamaged!! My hair is so soft and shiny! The process is messy, but so worth it. The red is beautiful and natural looking, complimenting the natural highlights that were in my hair. It's a beautiful multifaceted auburn. I am never going back to a hair salon!! Thank you Lush!!

Dark red sheen

star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled star-star-filled

Eugene, OR | 2 months ago

Super easy to use and definitely dyed my medium brown hair to a reddish orange tint. The first time I did it it was quite subtle and after the second time it was really red. Turn out I don't like red on myself after all but the bar did what it was supposed to do 😁 I found that cutting the bar into little slivers really helped it all melt evenly.
