What Is Henna?
Henna quality depends on which country it is grown in. LUSH uses the finest henna in the world, which is grown in Iran (Persia) and gives a vibrant red color. Obtaining Iranian henna is not simple, but we are lucky enough to have a supply line into the UK. We purchase it by the container load (a few tons at a time) to offer the finest possible henna to our customers.
Hennas have been used since 3400 BC and are well documented safe methods for dying hair (and skin). Hennas offer a safe alternative to coloring with commercial hair dyes. It can be modified with other ingredients like chamomile, rhubarb, coffee, and indigo to give different results to the hair.
