Lee Stafford Poker Straight Dry Shampoo
Advantages: Does as it says and cleans hair and gets rid of oily roots
Disadvantages: Very expensive!
We all don't always have all the time in the world to sort out our appearance. This is when this Dry Shampoo is a huge help. Last christmas i received a Lee stafford Poker straight set. It included the dry shampoo which i am reviewing now and also included a Dehumidifier and some heat protection shine mist. I am not sure how much the set cost as it was a gift. However i have looked on the boots website and it costs £5.49 for a 150ml bottle which i think is a little too expensive!! Also you can get a small travel sized bottle of 50ml which costs £2.09. The product comes in a chunky cylinder tin. It is hot pink in color and has white writing all over it in a funky informal font, for example 'OilY rOOts'.
Dry Shampoo basically gets rid of any greasy roots in your hair or as the product claims it is for 'oily roots, get more days from your blow-dry between washes' The product claims to Refresh your hair, Revitalize it and clean it! Basically it is a way of washing your hair in minutes rather than the time it takes you shampoo conditioner and dry and maybe even straighten it! So it is a huge time saver. Sometimes i do not have the time to do this in a morning so Dry shampoo is a huge life saver to me.
How to use this product?
The bottle states that there is 'Lee's top tips' Lee Stafford is an award winning celebrity hairdresser, therefore i believe it would be a great choice to follow his top tips! He instructs that you must shake the dry shampoo well before use.
Then you must spray from about 16cm onto the root area which is oily and greasy!
Then the next top tip is too vigorously rub away the powder with your fingers!
Then Lee Stafford himself says 'girl you are ready to go without having to blow.'
But personally i believe you should also brush through your hair after you have vigorously rubbed away the powder as i think that this helps from past experience.
I think that if you do not spray too much of the dry shampoo onto your hair then you will be fine. It is really easy to rub in then and does not leave you with 'grey' hair. However i have in the past put too much dry shampoo on and struggled to rub it in but i think once you have done that you will never make that mistake again! Also DO NOT spray it too closely or this will result in it being very hard to get out and if you have brown or dark hair it will cause your hair to look a grey-ish color which isn't the most appealing look if you are young!
The products effects are great. I certainly believe it gets rid off any grease or oily roots which i wouldn't of been comfortable leaving the house with but once i have put the dry shampoo on i am good to go quickly and confidently! Another advantage of the product is that it smells really feminine like all other Lee Stafford products do. I personally love the smell of his products. Also the product gives volume to your hair.
However the Dry shampoo also has some disadvantages unfortunately. The main disadvantage of this Dry shampoo is the price! £5.49 for a 150ml bottle is that a joke? I suppose you do pay for the name of the brand but i would recommend Batiste Dry shampoo which is only £2.35 and works the exact same! Also that comes in a number of different scents and different ones for different colors! Also another disadvantage is that the Dry shampoo leaves your hair feeling ruff and dry which isn't great if someone tried to feel it.
Overall I believe that the dry shampoo is a great product it certainly cleans your hair and gets rid of them oily roots as it claims it will do however i do not believe it is worth paying the extra money to buy Lee Staffords product when you can simply buy a cheaper companies Dry Shampoo which will do the exact same job. It is not something that you are able to use all of the time but it is certainly a help in those emergencies.
I would definitely recommend this Dry Shampoo if you have the money too buy it but i personally prefer a bargain therefore i recommend Batiste Dry Shampoo as i believe it does the same job for a much cheaper price.
Thank you for reading my review x
Summary: Cheaper products do the same job!
