Review: Lee Stafford ‘s Hair Growth Treatment

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment 1

In an attempt to obsess less over nail polish (sorry for that, we get carried away some times…), we’ve been on the prowl for new products to test & share with you.  So today we’ve got  a review of Lee Stafford‘s Hair Growth Treatment – or HAiR GRowTH TREaTMENT – by our beauty-in-chief Lisa.


Over the past couple of years, my hair has seen many different styles & colours – I’ve dyed it black, blond, red, and every shade of dark brown, I chopped off my long manes for the sleek bob made fashionable by Rihanna, and exposed it to the Spanish chlorinated tap water & the waters of the Balearic Sea on a daily basis – so it’s fair to say I’ve put my locks through a lot. And it showed: my hair was a weird combination of dry ends with über greasy roots and it would just not be tamed and/or styled.

I tried switching to different shampoos & conditioners – though I’ve never been a fan of the latter – but ended up with even drier tresses – and even went No ‘Poo for a bit (not a success at the time as not washing it made my hair oily and stringy, which was not a flattering look and definitely not work appropriate), but nothing really seemed to work.

What I did notice during my shampoo-free months was that my hair felt better if I washed it 2-3 times a week instead of every day. Now I only wash it once or twice a week and my hair is in the best state it’s been in in a long time.  The only problem now is that it doesn’t seem to grow past my shoulders, which has left me with pretty much the same ‘do for 2 years. An here’s where Lee Stafford‘s Hair Growth Treatment comes in!

This treatment “for hair that never grows past a certain length” sounded perfect and an extensive google search provided me with copious raving reviews about how amazing this product is, so I was easily convinced 🙂 About a month ago, I finally got my hands on one of these lovely looking pots – Lee Stafford is not that widely available where I live – and was very eager to try it. At approximately €11, the Hair Growth Treatment isn’t cheap, but according to the reviews I’d read, it was well worth the money.

What Lee Stafford’s Hair Growth Treatment promises:

  • Vital hair and scalp complex helps to reduce hair loss
  • Improves follicle health which in turn increases the ability of the hair to anchor to the scalp
  • Soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturizes the scalp
  • Addresses hair and scalp ageing at a cellular level
  • Improvement in tensile strength to give body and texture by penetrating the hair reaching the inner cortex
  • Improves volume and feel of the hair

According to Lee Stafford himself, you are to apply an egg-sized scoop of the product to your hair after shampooing and massage it in from roots to ends, leaving it in for 5 minutes before rinsing and conditioning as normal. I reckoned that particular quantity would be a tad too much for my hair (especially for €11 per tub!), so I used about half of that. Mister Stafford also recommends using this treatment in between the shampoo and conditioner from the Hair Growth range, but I thought I’d see how this treatment worked for me first.

Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment 3When I opened the pot, I instantly noticed the treatment’s scent, which is supposedly typical of Lee Stafford products, and reminded me of my grandmother’s cosmetics powder – but not in a good way (I’ll get to this later). I scooped out about half the recommended amount (or the size of a tiny egg?) and massaged it in as instructed. The Hair Growth Treatment‘s consistency was just right – not too thick, not too runny – and was easy to apply all over my hair. I left it in for 5 minutes – which I spent shaving my legs 🙂 – and then rinsed it out. Even pre-conditioning, my hair felt  super soft and smooth and I was quite pleased with it, but then I looked down. The shower drain was full of hair (and no, not from shaving my legs, they weren’t THAT hairy!)! As I clean the drain after every shower, I know how much hair usually falls out in the shower but this was preposterous – and scary. But seeing as there was nothing I could do about it, I conditioned my hair and went on with my day.

But all day – and even up to three days later – the Hair Growth Treatment‘s scent followed me. While the scent itself is perfectly tolerable, I just don’t like my hair to smell like it… especially not for days! Thinking it was perhaps the combination of the treatment with my regular conditioner, I decided to try and ignore it.

Not one to give up, I gave it another go a 2 weeks later and again my hair fell out in clumps – possible even more so than the first time! As this was the only change in my hair care/beauty routine, there is no doubt that Lee Stafford’s Hair Growth Treatment is the culprit, which is a shame because I really wanted to like this product (it’s cruelty free!), but it is just not for me

Have you ever had a similar experience with a much hyped product?
