I bought the Lee Stafford Arganoil from Morocco set because I thought if it contained argan oil, it must be nourishing for curly hair. I also wanted to try something from the high street rather than a luxury salon brand, in an attempt to save some money!
My initial concern was that it was a four step regime rather than a three step. In these times of co-washing when we’re trying to get our hair care down to as few steps as possible, this seemed like a step the wrong way! I decided to give it a go anyway.
The shampoo, as with everything else in the range, has a chemically scent. That aside, it lathers well and leaves my hair feeling very clean.
Deep Nourishing Treatment
I usually use a treatment instead of a conditioner but you use this treatment between the shampoo and conditioner. This is something new for me but it was worth a try. Unfortunately, my hair did not feel “treated” at all. I don’t think this treatment made any difference so for me it was an added extra step which I did not need.
The conditioner made my hair nice and smooth and seemed to work better when I did not use the treatment. I used to skip the treatment and just leave the conditioner in for a few minutes straight after shampooing.
This is my favourite part of the regime. It makes my curls soft, bouncy and defined without making them stiff. My curls do need refining and smoothing with hair oil but this curl cream left me with gorgeous curls.
I had to stop using the shampoo and conditioner because whilst they left my hair nice and curly, they left my sensitive scalp very dry. Overall, I would probably buy the curl cream again but not the rest of the products. Back to the luxury salon brands!
