Shop Hush Aura Palette Review

Shop Hush has been pretty active in social media marketing. I'm pretty sure you would have come across their brand name on Instagram and YouTube by now.

The instructions are to mix the hair color and developer in a 1:1 ratio. For my shoulder length hair, I used less than a quarter of each bottle (I don't have a lot of hair). The development time is 30 mins, so be prepared. You could use a towel or plastic bag around your shoulders, or apply vaseli…
