Lush Henna Hair Color Review

Back in January around my birthday, my best friend brought me Lush's Henna to try and to review for my blog. She said I would enjoy the Henna treatment because she has previously used it. I finally got around to using the Henna and was at my local Lush store earlier. I have read about others using Henna and reading mixed reviews on it. I had a thought of what Henna was in my mind before trying it out for myself.

Here is a picture of the Henna Hair Color

Henna is the natural way to color your hair and gives it a great conditioning treatment. I love that Lush has all natural ingredients in this Henna. Directly from the Lush website:" We use the finest Persian henna; the leaves are dried and ground into a powder and mixed with conditioning cocoa butter, which forms the basis of our Cacas. Organic lemon juice helps to bring out the redness and gives hair shine and lustre. You’re left with stunning, shiny and healthy-looking hair."

The Henna that is pictured is if you want a reddish color to your hair. They have 4 different colors you can choose from, Deep Chestnut,Red, Rich Brown and Dark Black. Now you can do the Henna treatment at home but it is suggested that you have the staff at the Lush store do it for you the first time.

I absolutely love my Lush store location. The staff there is always so friendly and welcoming. They are really knowledgeable about the products in the store and are always willing to give you a demonstration of any product you want to try. Here is a picture of my Lush store, well a part of it:

You would have to make an appointment to come into the store to have them put the Henna in your hair. It was kinda crazy sitting in the store having this done as people were strolling on by lol! They put tarp down and a cape around you. The henna is broken up into pieces and placed into a small crock pot. They slowly add water to help melt the henna down. It should be the consistency of brownie mix and you shouldn't have any lumps. My hair surprisingly only needed one brick. I came there with my hair sectioned off and detangled to make the process easier.First they would apply a hair balm around your head so the henna doesn't stain your skin then the employee worked section by section to apply the henna to my head. I would recommend taking some aspirin before going because this really weighted my hair down and it felt so heavy!! The process for me took about an hour. After the henna was applied, she put saran wrap around all of my hair and I was finished. She gave me great tips on how to wash it out and how long to leave it in for. Yes, I walked through the mall looking all crazy but I didn't mind too much lol!!

Now comes the fun part, washing it out! I left it my hair for two and a half hours. I took the saran wrap off and rinsed my hair for a bit to loosen the henna. I started to freak out because I saw it all over my shower and was hoping it wouldn't stain or be hard to clean!! Next I used some some conditioner to help break up the henna and rinse it out. I immediately felt how soft and manageable my hair was! After using the conditioner twice, I shampooed my hair twice and used conditioner again. It really took a while to rinse and cleanse my hair. It felt like you were trying to wash a ton of sand out of your hair!! It felt like I was never going to get this stuff out of my hair but it all came out and it did not stain the shower!!

I love how my hair feels! Its super soft and was so easy to deal with. My hair does look lighter and I see the red on my ends the most. Maybe I can get a better picture of my hair when the sun is out again but I just love my hair!

I would recommend trying this out for yourself! Each brick is 25.95 and well worth it! I would use this again, my friend brought me two bricks so I have another one for next time! I'm not sure if I would try it at home but eventually I will.

Hope you enjoyed this review. Have you try Henna before? What was your experience with it? Comment below and let me know!!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
