LUSH Hair Dye:One Month Later

on March 6, 2012

Well, it’s been a little over a month and it’s time to check up on the Great Henna Hair Dye Experiment.  Aren’t you excited to see? Below are the before and after pictures on the day I dyed it…


And here it is today…


So, there’s obviously still a lot of color in there. Not as much of the red, but it’s still more of a brown color than the muddied-water color I started with. I certainly don’t think this would last 3 months but there are a few factors that could attribute to that. For one thing, I shampoo, condition, and blow dry my hair every day and I’m sure that washes out the color quicker than if I didn’t do that all the time. Also I have very thin, fine strands that don’t hold a style very well to begin with, so I imagine it doesn’t hold color well either.  As mentioned in the original post, I didn’t keep the dye over heat while applying and in the instructions is does say that heat helps the color to be more vibrant.

However, there is no obvious root difference like what can happen with other color as your hair grows out. That was one of the positives I read about in other reviews that the color fades out all at once, so it’s less noticeable that your hair is dyed. And I’m still very happy with how soft my hair is and the pretty shine it has.

I will definitely do this again, probably during spring break in a few weeks as I still have half a block left to use. I plan on making a few changes; using a double boiler for one, and I want to keep the dye on longer than 3 hours. I’m hoping this will deepen the color even more and will last a little longer.

So, has anyone else given these dyes a try? If you have, let me know! I’d love to hear your experiences!
