DIY PINK HAIR - LUSH

My latest bath turned into a bit of an experiment that ended with cotton candy colored hair via a lush bath bomb...

So heres the scoop! 

Ive been a lush addict for a while, I have used just about everything they have. I dig the brand, what they represent, and bath time is my favorite! 

Being a bath bomb junkie and participating in regular lush chats, ive heard from a few fellow blondes that some of their bath bombs temporarily tinted pieces of their hair that accidentally got soaked in the bath.

Not wanting to mess up my super bleached hair and being a very active lush user, I took to google to see what it was all about. 

There were a few complaints about bath bombs turning pieces of their hair temporarily pink, purple, green, blue etc...nothing to drastic with the exception of one gal pal who turned her skin totally pink by rubbing the bath bomb into her skin? Complete user error. 

This sparked my curiosity. If peeps were experiencing pieces getting a bit tinted from falling in, what would happen if you soaked your whole head for like an hour. On purpose. 

Yep - a $4 lush bath bomb + netflix for an hour created this magic! 

Not only did this not cost me a damn thing (cause I was taking a bath anyways) but my hair ended up super silky soft! Like almost too soft...


MY RECIPE: 

-Lush Daddy-O Shampoo - let sit in hair for about 30 minutes

-Lush bath bomb soak - let your hair sit for 1 hr or longer 

*I used the lush bath bomb "PINK Bath Bomb" and mixed it with a little bit of the Karma Bubble Bar. If I were to go back I would have mixed it with the Comforter Bubble Bar - its way more PINK! 


Keep in mind - there is no guarantee that this will work for everyone, not only do I have super white/blonde hair but my hair holds onto color like crazy! Everyones hair is different, please keep that in mind.  

It is ALWAYS going to look better going to a stylist - but if you are like me and find joy in playing with your hair and you dont so much care about the results I say go for it. 

Not only did this not cause any damage to my hair but it cost me next to nothing and it turned out way better than I expected! 

Much love,

February LUSH Haul (Valentines Day)

The last two times I have gone to Lush I have been a little bummed out. They have either been completely out of their bath bombs or only have a small selection of products actually in stock.

This last time around they were pretty much out of all of their Valentines day/February products but luckily they were back in stock with their usual bath bombs since they were completely sold out around Christmas time the last time I went. So if you are wanting their Valentines selection maybe go during a weekday or order your goodies online. 

One of my favorite things about Lush is that they constantly have new products for the holidays! This keeps things exciting! Because they were so low on Valentines Day goodies I went with some of the basics with one exception which I am really excited about! 

The exception is this adorable bath bomb called the "Love Locket". Its a pricier bath bomb but for good reason! This one is special. It comes with a bonus bath bomb on the inside and when you break it in half you can use each side in two separate baths. Essentially you get three bath bombs in one product! 

To make things even more special the secret inside heart is filled with tiny little paper hearts and seaweed hearts. Awwww...

The love locket smells of vanilla and jasmine making it perfectly romantic for Valentines Day. This is one that is perfectly themed for my weekly "Self Love Sunday" rituals so I am super excited to use this one closer to Valentines day or when I am in need of some serious me time. 

Up next goes along with the general theme of Valentines Day but is a Lush classic as well as one of my absolute favorites!

This delicious bath bomb is called the "Sex Bomb" and it smells of jasmine, clary sage, and ylang ylang. Its super fun to watch unfold in the bath because the center flower blossoms as the bath bomb unwinds.

My cute friend Michelle picked out this next one! Shout out to her for having great taste! This ones called the "Pink Bath Bomb"  and its inspired by Audrey Hebburn. It smells of vanilla and cotton candy making sexy and fun! It comes with a confetti surprise on the inside which I cant wait to see. The pink hearts in the center make it super cute while it turns your bath water pink! 

Last is another favorite of mine! This one is called "Twilight"  and it smells magical! I used this one the night I got it, I couldnt resist! 

It smells of lavender mixed with something else that I cant pick out. Its got a dusky incense kinda of a smell. Its so relaxing and intriguing making for a magical bath night. It has a sweet blue center that turns your bath water a pink/purple color like a gorgeous night sky.

Magical is the best word to describe this one.

They have some other really fun Valentines Day products along with their usual bath bombs. Maybe i'll do some online shopping here in the near future! 

Hope you guys are having a great start to your week! Here is to a month filled with lots of love! 

Much love!
