Lee Stafford Poker Straight
Advantages: Cheap, Does What It Says, Doesnt Leave Hair Sticky, Smells Great, Makes Hair Attractively Shiny
Disadvantages: None Yet!
I think I suffer from the same addiction as a lot of girls do these days - I can't live without my trusty straightners! And fitting in with another stereotype I adore the colour pink. This shows how sad I really am but I am honestly attracted to products (for some reason especially when it comes to hair care) which incorporate the colour pink and it certainly encourages me to buy them.
So when I was in the showers after swimming one of my friends had this hot pink bottle of shampoo and it smelt so nice! When I asked her she explained that she had gotten it in Boots and that they did a lot of different hair care products.
I went to see what Lee Stafford had on offer in Boots but it was not the heat protection spray that I first gave a try. I decided that I would use their shampoo and conditioner. The packaging is so gorgeously girly and the smell is beautiful (similar to Angel perfume by Thierry Mugler if you know what that smells like) and not only does it smell when your using it but it smells after you dry your hair too!
But not long after having tried the shampoo and conditioner I went for my regular haircut and my hairdresser mentioned that my hair was starting to look quite badly conditioned at the ends. He suggested that I start using a heat protection spray, but there was no way that I was going to pay the prices that were charged for the products that they had in the salon.
So when I went to re-purchase the Lee Stafford conditioner and shampoo I noticed they had a 3 for 2 offer on their products in Boots and so I decided that I would get the heat protection spray too.
The spray is idea because when it comes out of the bottle it comes out in a mist form so that your hair is not drenched with the spray but it covers the hair fairly evenly. You can use the spray on both dry and wet hair which is good if I haven't washed my hair before I straighten it or if I only plan on blow drying my hair.
The product seems to absorb into the hair and partially evaporate when it comes into contact with heat and this is good because it means that your hair does not look greasy or feel sticky. In actually fact I find that when using this product my hair feels softer than when I haven't used anything.
I have used other products since because I have received quite a few as gifts. One of the Innovate sprays from Superdrug which I used seemed to protect my hair but it left it feeling horribly sticky. I also gave the Mark Hill protection spray a try but it sprayed out of the bottle in a direct line and just left me with patches of hair that were dripping in the spray.
Not only do I think that the Lee Stafford heat protection spray is a quality product I also think that it is reasonably priced compared with the rest of the products that are available. It is £4.99 for a 200 ml bottle which seems to have lasted me quite a long time and I have reasonably long hair and regularly use my straightners. Also the Lee Stafford range is quite often on offer 3 for 2 in Boots because I think it is an exclusive range to Boots as I haven't seen or heard of it anywhere else, other than from Lee Stafford salons (which are far and few between) and from the Lee Stafford website (although I could be wrong)
I would really recommend this product to any other straightner (or even just heated appliances in general) addicts. It means that you are giving your hair the care that it needs whilst getting a nice shine to your hair and leaving it smelling beautiful. Definitely value for money!
Summary: Definately a product worth purchasing for the benefit of your hair, and your purse!
