It’s the weekend, and to me that means one thing… PAMPER TIME!
A couple of weeks ago I was kindly sent the new Lee Stafford Coco Loco range* to try out. I reviewed some of the argan oil products a few months ago (you can read it here) and I’ve been using the argan oil Miracle Mist every day since – so I was super excited to review the newest range!
I love using coconut oil in my hair to try and give it some life but there are two things I hate about using it on its own: the overpowering smell, and the fact you have to sit around for hours with a ton of grease in your hair for it to work. Usually I have to take an afternoon off, cover my hair in the oil, shove it in a towel and not go anywhere for 5 hours – and THEN have a shower to wash it all out. Too much faff for me, sorry!
Luckily that’s why I’m thrilled with this new Lee Stafford range, because all of the products contain coconut oil and none of it involves the faffy, greasy, ‘leave oil in your hair for hours’ situation. Plus the smell is DELICIOUS, the coconut scent is still there but it’s subtle, sweet and pretty much edible.
I have to mention the name too, because ‘coco loco’ makes me think of “you go Glen Coco” – and anything that reminds me of Mean Girls is automatically amazing.
So, onto the products. First I tested out the shampoo and conditioner. Not much to say about them other than the fact they smell absolutely delicious and they make my hair SO shiny! I have quite damaged ends at the moment so any health boosts are much appreciated. I’ve been using both regularly and they seem to be lasting a while too!
Onto the Coconut Mask and Coconut Balm.
I have to say I think the Coconut Mask is my favourite product of the 6 – you simply wash your hair, run the mask through your ends and wash it out after 5 mins (I find this 5 mins encourages me to actually shave my legs, which is an added bonus for any lazy girls out there, lol). Even though I think the shampoo and conditioner do a fab job at reviving my dead ends, the hair mask seems to give my hair a full deep cleanse and it gets rid of all the product build-up as well as making it mega shiny.
The coconut balm is also a fab product, but it seems to be a bit of a ‘general use’ product. It can be used for styling or for some added shine, but I have been putting some through my hair if it gets a bit static (so many scarves at the mo!). I have to say it looks exactly like coconut oil normally does (shock, but you know what I mean) and I was worried it’d give my hair that ‘greasy look’, but it somehow doesn’t which I’m so pleased about!
The final two products are the Coconut Spritz and the Blow & Go lotion.
Both of these products I love, but I tend to use one or the other as they’re both for towel-dried hair. The Spritz adds moisture to the hair and helps with styling, and the Blow & Go detangles your hair and completely nourishes it. I personally prefer using the Blow & Go lotion because it seems to have a more of a ‘protecting’ element to it, and it really helps with strengthening my ends!
So there you have it! I think if you were going to invest in some of the products I’d mostly recommend the Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Mask and the Blow & Go lotion. The Hair Mask is 100% a must!
P.s. they’re on special offer at Boots at the mo, 3 for 2 – snap ’em up! One product would make a fab stocking filler or buy a bundle for a big gift!
Hope you have a lush weekend,
