I hope you are all doing well and you are having a wonderful sunny Saturday so far! I thought today I would write up a hair related post as it's been a little while since my last one. When these new Lee Stafford 'Coco Loco' launches landed on my doorstep I was extremely intrigued to give them a try as I have been obsessed with coconut recently and ultimately I love trying new products on my hair. I have been a huge fan of Lee Stafford's Flexible Hold Hairspray since I first tried it back in 2013 and I can confirm that these are just as incredible! This collection is one of Lee Stafford's latest and he recently added a handful of new products to the lineup - two of them being the Coconut Dry Shampoo* and Coconut Hairspray* (two of my most used and most loved product types). The whole range is inspired by everything coconut and I have been loco for it! Not only am I really enjoying the summer esque coconut scent but each product really has made a different to my hair routine. I couldn't wait to share my thoughts with you all!
Coconut Oil has become such a key trend throughout the beauty industry and there are so many incredible benefits to using it. If you follow me on snapchat (@SophiaMeola) then you would know that I am a huge fan of coconut oil hair masks, so trying out a hair range which incorporates coconut oil into the formulation really grasped my attention. Coconut oil can be used for so many different benefits, whether it's for your hair, skin, nails or used in cooking there is so much potential. Never-the-less, this range has offered some unbeatable nourishing properties and I have been using the Dry Shampoo and Hairspray ever since they landed on my doorstep. There are a total of 10 products within this range including, Shampoo and Conditioner, Coconut Mask, Light Serum Spray, Coconut Balm, Coconut Spritz, Blow and Go Genius Lotion, Mouse, Dry Shampoo and Hairspray.
First up we have the Coco Loco Coconut Dry Shampoo* (£3.33) which has now become one of my top five favourite dry shampoo products. When your hair is feeling a little worse for wear, call in the Coconut Cavalry! The Coco Loco Dry Shampoo contains a delicate powder that is gentle on the scalp yet extremely absorbent to help combat oily roots. As well as using dry shampoo on oily roots, I also enjoy using dry shampoo on freshly washed hair (when my hair is so clean that it clings to my face and it won't behave haha) as well as on second-day and sometimes third-day hair too (shhh). This product helps add the perfect amount of volume whilst combating oil without making your hair feel crunchy, powdery or like you need to wash it all over again. I have super long and thick hair so finding a product like this that helps add that volume I need is incredible. One thing I would note with this product is you really have to give it a good shake before use to ensure everything inside the packaging is distributed evenly, however, other than that you are good to go. This is the perfect product for big, fresh and gorgeous hair that smells deliciously coconutty.
The second product I had the opportunity to try was the Coco Loco Coconut Hairspray* (£3.99) and we all know how hairspray is such a staple product in any hair routine. This deliciously coconutty hairspray creates natural long-lasting hold whilst leaving hair soft to the touch and flexible for styling. This hairspray has been formulated with silk proteins and UV absorbers to ensure hair is conditioned and has maximum protection for the brightest sunlight - we have to keep our hair protected from the sun too! I use hairspray pretty much daily to ensure my hair is looking it's best (well, hoping it is haha) all day and everyday. Just like dry shampoo I love using hairspray to give my hair that added volume it needs which I sometimes lose due to my hairs length and thickness. I usually flip my hair upside down, spray the hairspray, shake my roots and flip my hair back to create some va va voom volume haha. The great thing about this hairspray is it has an incredible hold with long lasting effects but without that crunchy texture or stiffness that some hairsprays cause. I would say it has a similar formulation to the Flexible Hold Hairspray just with the added bonus of coconut! What more could you need?!
Overall, I am incredibly impressed with both of these products and I think the new Lee Stafford Coco Loco range is going to become a new favourite. The packaging on each product is super cute with the pink hues and with both products coming in under £4 I think they are a complete bargain. If you would like to give this new Lee Stafford range a try you can take a peek at the full lineup on Boots.com.
