The relationship you have with your hair is a complex one. We agonize over its bad behavior, contemplate putting it into Rehab, and punish it with blow dryers and flat irons. Sometimes it's too thin, too thick, too limp, too fluffy, curly, and out of control. Sometimes we don't know what we've got until it's gone.
This year we're making resolutions for new hair. Whatever you want to change - bad habits, perming and coloring overload, or if you want to learn to accept your mane for what it is - now is the time to do it.
With all resolutions it helps to write it down, to make it official. If you're really committed to change ask for help; tell a friend. When you have someone else to be accountable to and not just yourself, it makes a world of difference. And with hair it's even easier - there's no hiding that ponytail when you've sworn to stop putting it up all of the time.
Or, if you have naturally curly hair but are locked into a tempestuous love affair with your flat iron and you've made a vow to break it off, everyone is going to know when you go back for that hot, steamy action. Make a resolution, and embrace your curls once and for all.
One of the amazing things about our preservative-free, and all natural LUSH Les Cacas henna hair colors is that they look different on everyone. We can’t say exactly how Les Cacas will turn out on your hair because they work more like a gloss or varnish than a traditional dye, so it depends a lot on the colour of your hair now. That’s why we recommend you doing a strand test before you do your whole head.
Caca Noir: If you've got darker brown to black hair, you can expect a dark, blue-black indigo tint. We don't recommend Noir for light hair colors as it has a lot of indigo, which is naturally a bluish green shade.
Caca Brun: Mousey brown, medium and dark brunettes can expect a glossy, unified rich coffee brown color with Caca Brun. Lighter blonde and grey hair will turn several shades darker, turning brown with a green cast. Adding another coat of the same color will darken and develop it further.
Caca Marron: If you hair is very dark in color, it will become glossy, shiny ...
With New Year's resolutions in full swing, there are quite a few of us vowing to put health as a priority in 2013. Perhaps you've made a pledge to hit the pavement or the gym for the first time in... years? Or maybe revamping your diet is at the top of your list. One great way to get your body in gear after weeks of overeating, drinking, and being merry is a detox.
While we do recommend that you consult with your health practitioner to create a plan that is best suited to your personal needs, you can get started in the kitchen with a smoothie filled with fresh, nutritious ingredients. There are numerous smoothie recipes available, so we thought we'd try some to give you the best scoop. They are delicious, easy to make, and vegan and gluten-free too! Even better? They contain some of our favorite fresh ingredients for making products too.

Meet Brandi Halls, our Director of Brand Communications.
10 years ago Brandi started working at LUSH as a PR Assistant right out of college... and look where she is now!
Brandi has been with us as we grew and expanded our business across North America, and has been growing her career at the same time. She's taken on a variety of roles, and even relocated from Vancouver to open our PR office in New York. Along the way she has made incredible contributions to our company, and there is no one better suited to be our Director of Brand Communications. We're very lucky to have her as part of the LUSH family.
But even after all of these years, we had NO idea that behind the scenes her singing, dancing, and botany skills were so expansive. With these talents who knows what roles she'll take in the future?
Happy New Year!
Now that the holidays have almost all passed, (the 12 Days of Christmas end on January 6th), the hangovers are slowly subsiding, and the pants that fit last week are now cutting off circulation; it's time to celebrate a new year. There are so many ways to ring in the New Year - polar bear swims, shiny new calendars, and maybe even new pants. And of course, there's that tradition that never seems to stick - resolutions.
At LUSH, we believe in the right to make mistakes, lose everything, and start all over again. We also believe in keeping it Fresh. A new year, and a fresh start never gets old with us. While change and starting over can happen at any time, there's nothing like the optimism of a new year to revaluate, set goals, and make it happen.
There's no right or wrong way to make a resolution - you don’t even need to call it a resolution. You can approach it from the perspective of wanting to take action on some part of you, or you can see it as an opportunity to look forward to events and celebrations of the coming year. So whether you want to stop biting your nails, finally take the leap on a decision you've been procrastinating on, or make a collage of aspirations - it's completely up to you.
The most important thing to consider when setting a resolution for yourself? Have a positive attitude, and set clear, attainable steps to make it happen. Don’t try to do too much at once. They say it takes 28 days to break a habit; why not break those 28 days up into 28 daily goals to get you on your way?
For example, if you've decided that this is the year that you're going to start taking more bubble baths, here are some ideas to get you started:
