Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo
Advantages: Does grow hair, Lasts a while.
I have always had long hair, however I was finding it quite hard to maintain and got a lot of it cut off to above my shoulders last year. I was really missing my long locks and they didn't seem to grow back as quickly as before, so I thought I would try out some different things to encourage the growth. I had heard lots about the Lee Stafford range which is supposedly targeted for those who's hair never grows past a certain length. I went to Boots to pick up the hair growth treatment and thought I may as well pick up the shampoo as well as they apparently work better when used together. There is also a conditioner available but I opted not to buy this too.
The price of these is a little steep, however I figured that if it did the job, I wouldn't have to keep repurchasing it so it would be worth the extra money. The shampoo is £6.99 which I feel is quite extortionate for a shampoo, but with its added benefits I felt it was worth it. Be sure to keep an eye out for deals on the Lee Stafford range as there is often a 3 for 2 deal on which would save you a bit of money in the long run. I picked mine up from Boots so I would recommend visiting there to buy these products if you so wish.
As you can see in the image, the shampoo comes in quite a bright pink bottle, so it is easy to spot on the shelf when you are looking for it. I think it looks quite attractive in the bathroom as I like to show off my good cosmetics and beauty products! You get 200ml worth of shampoo in this bottle which is around the average amount but as you can imagine can run out quite quickly if more than one person uses it.
So how did it work? To get the liquid out you simply have to push the cap down to open up the hole where it dispenses. I must stress that you do not need a lot of this shampoo for it to do an effective job. I just give it a little squeeze so about the size of a 50p piece comes out. This is adequate for shorter hair, however if you feel it hasn't washed thoroughly just repeat this process once more. The shampoo has quite a nice, salon scent to it but it is nothing fruity or fresh which is a shame. The colouring of the shampoo is a clearish colour and is quite a nice, thick texture.
It does lather up well which is expected of a salon standard shampoo and does clean the hair thoroughly which is fantastic as well as the hair growth benefits. It washes out easily and I find it an effective shampoo to use on a daily basis. Once I had dried my hair after coming out the shower, my hair looked a lot healthier and shiny which I was very impressed with. But what I was most excited to see was whether my hair grew during the period in which I was using this shampoo.
I was the only person using this shampoo meaning that it lasted me a considerable amount of time. I would say that I was using this shampoo and the Lee Stafford hair growth treatment for around three to four weeks, and in this time I was hoping for some good results. The shampoo contains pro-growth complex which is a protein which helps to stimulate the hair follicles. This therefore creates a healthy scalp and encourages hair growth. Obviously I was not expecting to wake up one day with Rapunzel length hair, but I was hoping this would work as opposed to hair extensions.
I have to say that the results were pretty impressive! Don't get knocked down in the first couple of weeks as you can hardly notice any change, however as I approached half way in the bottle I started to notice some good results. After a months use my hair had grown a good inch or two which I was amazed with. I must note that my hair does grow quite quickly compared to others so it might not be this effective for you, but I would definitely recommend trying it. I am so happy with how much my hair has grown since I have started using this product.
After I ran out of the hair growth treatment, I continued to use this shampoo on its own. I must admit that the results were not as effective because I was only using the one product, so it is worth trying out the rest of the range if you want quicker and more effective results. However, by using just the shampoo on its own, I did still get a little bit of growth which is fantastic, but I would definitely recommend using the hair mask too.
If you are interested in reading up on the hair growth treatment, I have reviewed it on DooYoo as well so just check out my reviews.
Overall, this shampoo is well recommended for those who are serious about growing their hair an extra inch or so. It is effective and not a gimmick product, which probably explains its slightly steep price. I would recommend using along with other products in the range too. Thanks for reading.
Summary: Great shampoo for hair growth!
