Lush Caca Rouge Henna Hair Dye on No Poo Hair

As I said in my earlier post, I have been going “No Poo” for about twelve days now, and today I decided to give my hair a little treat by using a brick of Lush “Caca Rouge” henna on it. I thought it would be a good thing to do a video blog so you can understand the whole process and what it was like.

Hint: It is MESSY.

But the proof is in the pudding. And if you don’t really want to watch a 13 minute video, you can simply see the result here.

Lush Caca Rouge Henna before and after

It’s basically done really well – far better than I expected. But the process was really very messy. I had Mark help me out with it, and we had some fun, as basically henna is just MUD.

If you watch the video, you’ll see that not everything went according to plan, but it was pretty awesome to experiment, and I’m happy with the result. Henna is an all-natural hair dye and the Lush brand has cocoa butter, herbs and essential oils in it to make it a great conditioning mask for the hair. As someone who is “no poo” at the moment, I found it really nice to get some love back in my hair.

Anyway, if you are curious, here is the video which serves as a tutorial and review in one. You’re welcome.

  1. I once dyed my hair red. I left the dye on for double the amount of time and even put double the amount on, yet it still didn’t take! You hair though looks fabulous! #BSParty

  2. Hello!
    Is it necessary to use the whole bar? I watched another tutorial where she used a few chunks, honey, conditioner and olive oil. Thanks!
