UK-based ethical cosmetics brand presents range of
Henna based products in the region
Henna has been used in the Middle East, North Africa and South-East Asia for centuries. A herbal dye, henna has made its way into the mainstream, praised for its organic elements and no-nonsense way of dyeing hair and skin. Lush MENA offers a wide range of henna and henna-infused products for anyone who wants colour, gloss and vibrance, without the chemicals.
What is henna? Henna has been used to decorate the hair and body for many years. Lush Henna, formulated by co-founder Helen Ambrosen, blends the finest, safest Persian henna that is sourced directly from Iran with Fair Trade cocoa butter and ingredients like indigo herb and fresh organic lemon juice to create bricks of organic hair dye. They are simple to use and give wonderful, lustrous colour. Every shade available – fiery Rouge, chocolatey Brun, autumnal Marron and dark Noir – promotes shine and condition as henna coats hair in a protective layer, like varnish and fades naturally.
“If you use a synthetic dye, you open up the hair’s cuticle, which is the outer layer that gives shine,” says Lush founder and trichologist Mark Constantine. “You get inside the hair and you change your natural colour, and then you put in a synthetic colour which swells inside your hair. This same colour also penetrates your skin, goes into your bloodstream and enters your system.”
The brand makes their own hair colours with no synthetic ingredients. Lush wants consumers to know that it is possible to have fabulously coloured hair without covering it with chemicals, which then unnecessarily make their way into the body and fundamentally the environment.
Lush also has supplemental products such as the Jasmine & Henna Fluff-Ease hair treatment, a pre-wash treatment that adds moisture, body and shine back into the hair; and the R&B hair moisturiser that is made with an extremely rich blend of oils and butters to restore tresses to its natural beauty.
