lucille ball hennacatLucille Ball is famous for a lot of reasons, but her signature red hair was one of the best kept secrets in Hollywood.

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.

Lucille Ball (August 6, 1911 – April 26, 1989) was an American actress, comedian, model, and film studio executive. She was the star of the sitcoms I Love Lucy, The Lucy–Desi Comedy Hour, The Lucy Show, Here’s Lucy, and Life with Lucy.
