Lee Stafford Hair Products

I'm a massive fan of Lee Stafford's products and not just because their packaging is pink. Although that helps.

I discovered them a while back when I was looking for something to deal with my dry, bleach-damaged hair. I bought the Heat Protective Spray after standing in Boots googling on my phone for about 10 minutes to check they were cruelty free, which they are.  So I scanned the labels of a couple of items and they looked good to go. Not long after this, Boots had a 2 for 1 sale on and so I basically stocked up on a bunch of stuff.

Ever since then I've been building up my collection of LS products, pretty much anything I think I need for my hair, this has become my go to brand. So I'm going to list a few of my favourite products below.

Firstly my number one product, the Arganoil Nourishing Miracle Oil. I love this stuff. I rub one pump between my palms and work it into the bottom half of my hair, concentrating on the very ends, which get super dry. I also sometimes use a tiny bit like a serum if my hair is looking a bit frizzy and I'm too lazy to straighten it!

Second is the first thing I ever bought from this range, the Arganoil Miracle Heat Defence Spray. I use this before ALL heat styling, on wet or dry hair. So if I'm both blow-drying and using a heated appliance like a straightener or curling wand (which I try not to do too often), I will use it before both.  I believe that it's a combination of this product and the one above that has helped get my hair to a much MUCH better condition. My hairdresser has commented on it the last couple of times I've seen her, so that is validation enough for me! :o)

Next up is the detangling spray. My hair is fine and colour damaged from years of being an unnatural blonde and so when it's wet it gets really really tangled and knotty. In conjunction with my Tangle Teezer, this makes combing out wet hair WAY less traumatic.  I also sometimes use on my dry hair, this is especially useful if my hair was styled in curly do or backcombed the night before, because that generally means the underneath will be a mass of knots.

Lastly I picked the Shine Head Spray Shine. This does what it says on the tin, so I won't labour it, but I love this to make my hair look healthier and shinier on days when it is looking a bit dull (ie day 2 or 3 hair when I've put dry shampoo in! hahaha - I try to only wash my hair 1-2 times a week to avoid drying it out more than necessary!) I've also just seen on Boot's website that there's now an Arganoil Shine Spray, so I'll probably be trying that when this one runs out.

There are other products I also love but I didn't want this to turn into a rambling behemoth of a post so I just picked my favourite 4.  Also it's worth noting that some of the products can be bought in mini size, so great for travel if you're only taking hand luggage.

So here's the important bit if you're vegan. after a couple of emails over the holidays, the very helpful lady at Lee Stafford confirmed that ALL PRODUCTS, EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING are suitable for vegans:
  • Hair Growth Conditioner
  • Hair Growth Treatment
  • ARGANOIL® Shampoo
  • ARGANOIL® Conditioner
  • ARGANOIL® Treatment 
  • Frizz OFF Shampoo
  • Frizz OFF Conditioner
  • Frizz OFF Treatment
  • Frizz OFF Smoothing Spray     
  • Oily Roots Dry Ends Conditioner
  • Ubuntu Oils from Africa Blow Dry Smootheee

I must admit I was a little sad about the Arganoil Shampoo & Conditioners not being SFV, because I love the Arganoil range and I probably would've tried them next.  But I still have all the other products I love, so I'm good.  

I'd love to know, have you tried this range?  What's your favourite product?

You can buy Lee Stafford's products in the UK in Boots Stores and from Boots Online.  Lee's Website details where you can buy from if you're elsewhere in the world.
