Her hair stylist was instructed to keep her hair dye under lock and key. Lucille’s hair was kept vibrant with a secret Egyptian Henna rinse, which explains why it has been so hard to duplicate by hair designers across the country.
The henna rinse gave a ‘golden apricot’ colour to her hair.
Rumour has it that she continued with the henna rinses, acquiring the pure Henna from a wealthy sheik she met in Las Vegas. The henna was kept in a safe in her stylist’s garage, and when she left this world it was given to the estate.
