The first thing I do when I buy a hair product is smell it and this smells gorgeous. It's a pretty unexpected smell as I usually have products which smell like coconut but this is a flowery scent which I can't describe well but yes it's sooo nice. Lee advises to use it in between shampoo and conditioner.The consistency is similar to that of a conditioner and it basically says to apply an egg sized amount right from the ends of your hair and onto your scalp too. I find an 'egg size' a bit too much and if I used that much I wouldn't have any left. It's important to squeeze all the water out of your hair too before you slather it on as water dilutes the treatment. Once I've put it all over my hair I massage it into my scalp and then brush it through with my tangle teezer and leave it in for a good 5-10 minutes. It's best to apply in the bath as you need to leave it on a while in order to work and you can grab a good magazine whilst you're waiting.
So does it work?
I've been using this for about 2 weeks now and I already have at least an inch and a half root regrowth, I only got it highlighted 3 weeks ago too so I can definitely see an improvement. The tub also lasts longer than I thought as you can see below this is how much I have left after 2 weeks use, although I do only wash my hair 3 times a week. My hair is so much softer and shinier too (see photo of my shiny hair!) and I find it easier to brush and just manage in general. The lovely smell of the product lasts on your hair too I always find myself smelling it because it's gorgeous. The treatment hasn't made my hair greasier or anything either which can be a problem with the castor oil. Overall I really love this product and I wouldn't go back to castor oil anytime soon. I hope it continues to work and I'm going to keep it up, seen as I have another 2 tubs to go anyhow. Obviously it's not going to grow 2 inch over night but this stuff works. I'll let you know if I wake up with rapunzel hair anytime soon!
What Lee Stafford products do you own? Do they all smell as gorgeous as this does? Hope you're enjoying your weekends lots of love...
