When I first heard of sea salt shampoo, I couldn't help but think it was never going to work.
Although I love beach hair, I couldn't help but wonder if this would dry out my hair, making it even worse quality than it's been recently. Thankfully, I was very very wrong and the Lee Stafford Sea Salt products might just be my favourite shampoo and conditioner pairing ever.
I couldn't walk away from a 3 for £15 deal, so the pairing soon became a trio with the help of the Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo. So, let's see how we got on...
Okay, so first things first, the item that made me purchase some Lee Stafford products. The Sea Salt Crystalised shampoo completely caught my eye, purely for the fact that I'd never seen Sea Salt in shampoo before, but then again maybe I've just been oblivious.
The shampoo is sold for £10.99 which personally, I think is hella pricey! I would have never bought this shampoo if it wasn't for the 3 for £15 offer there was on Lee Stafford products. It's quite good value when the offer is on.
Anyway, on to the shampoo itself. As you can see, this shampoo is in a tub, meaning you have to get a big scoop in the palm of your hands to apply. That's the one thing I don't like about this shampoo, as I feel like I'm wasting the product. But, I also understand why it is a must for the shampoo to be sold this way.
Being a sea salt shampoo, you can easily feel the big lumps of salt as you rub the shampoo through your hair. It lathers up really quickly, making it easier to rub into your hair and ensuring that every strand is covered. It really doesn't have a strong scent like some other of my shampoo's I own, it's very subtle but still smells fresh and clean. It's the signature Lee Stafford scent (which I never knew before owning these products) and it has a very salon-y scent to it, if that makes any sense at all.
So, after all that rambling, does it do what it says on the tin? To answer it simply, yes it does!
The sea salt enhances my natural waves even more, giving my hair a beachy texture and volume. The sea salt crystals help to exfoliate my scalp, giving my hair a bit more oomph, which I'm naturally really lacking! Even though the shampoo focuses on the volume and texture, it still leaves my hair feeling super soft and cleansed.
So, I couldn't resist but buy the set to get as beach, wavy hair as I could. The Conditioner is slightly different to the shampoo, just for the fact that it's a foam without crystallised salt.
Again, it aims to volumise your hair, but still nourishing it. The lightweight formula is enriched with seaweed and algae to deeply condition the hair without it losing its volume. Paired with the shampoo, the two together really do work magic on my hair.
It's a liquid conditioner, but it turns into a foam once you pump it onto your hand. I love that the conditioner is a foam, it makes it so easy evenly apply to the lengths of my hair. Like it says on the tin, the conditioner is super nourishing and helps enhance my natural hair.
To finish off my 3 for £15 offer, I went straight for the dry shampoo. I've been a fan of Batiste for a long, long time, but I thought it was about time that I tried something new and something new is the Lee Stafford Dry Shampoo.
Again, it's got the signature Lee Stafford scent, fresh and salon-y. I really like it as it's subtle and not overbearing in the slightest.
The dry shampoo really does its job, giving me clean hair with a little bit of volume and oomph. It revives my hair between washes, but most of the time I use this to give my hair volume and texture, so it's easier to style.
The one thing I like about this product, that I've had issues with other dry shampoos is the residue it leaves, making it deadly obvious that I haven't washed my hair recently. This leaves nothing behind, but fresh(ish), clean hair!
I am so impressed with the few products I've picked up from Lee Stafford. I'm definitely going to be picking up the shampoo and conditioner again, it's a dream. Although I wish they'd change the text on their branding, it's starting to feel LiKe 2004 MsN DaYs...
Have you tried any of these products before?
