As promised, I’m continuing to share reviews of products that I’ve fully used up over on my WhatLauraLoves Instagram so that you know you’re getting my opinion formed over a long time. However I also want to share those reviews on my blog too, just incase any of you are finding this through good ol’ Google. So today, it’s the turn of the Lee Stafford Keep It Clean range which aims to deeply cleanse the hair, removing build up and keeping it fresh.
The signature ingredient of the Keep It Clean range is mineral rich, organic Pink Clay which is great at drawing out impurities. So excess product build up, be gone!
There’s a shampoo and conditioner, hair mask, priming lotion and dry shampoo in the range.
The shampoo and conditioner are a fantastic duo for deeply cleansing while also nourishing the hair. A lot of clarifying products can strip your hair colour and leave it feeling dry whereas I’ve found the Lee Stafford Keep It Clean Purifying Shampoo one doesn’t so it’s much more comfortable to use while achieving great results. If you use a lot of product in your hair, this dup is great for removing that build up plus other impurities that can be found on the hair and scalp through daily life, such as pollution, dust and sea salt on holiday.
The Lee Stafford Keep It Clean Conditioner is blends conditioning actives with pro-vitamin B5 to create a conditioner that nourishes without weighing the hair down or making it greasy or oily any quicker than it usually would. The result is soft hair with a light sheen that detangles with ease.
The shampoo and conditioner come in pump bottle packaging which I don’t like for travel but they’re fine for using at home although I did find it hard to get the last bits of product out without taking the top off and flushing out with water! I hate waste when it comes to my beauty products!
To further nourish and hydrate the hair, the Lee Stafford Keep It Clean Replenishing Mask is fantastic. Rather than as the last step, Lee Stafford actually advice using this mask in between shampooing and conditioning when the cuticles of the hair are open, allowing the mask to penetrate deeper and be more effective. Like with the conditioner, it has the added Pro-Vitamin B5 which is ultra nourishing but it doesn’t weigh the hair down at all so if you have fine hair especially and you’re looking for a nourishing mask, I’d suggesting you give this one a go. It works quickly and effectively in 5 minutes, so just enough time to wiz over your legs with the razor or to give your body a scrub.
For those days where you’re not washing your locks, the Lee Stafford Keep It Clean Dry Shampoo is brilliant. It is so good at banishing oily roots and giving the hair texture but it is much less powdery and white than the original dry shampoo most people have tried, Batiste. I love Batiste but I know some of you don’t because of the white cast it can leave on the hair if you apply a little too much or don’t rub in it quite so well; I personally love this as it gives my hair an ashy tone so it keeps my hair looking fab in between colour services. I’ve tried so many dry shampoos over the years and usually I find the ones that are clear or less powdery to be pretty ineffective but the Lee Stafford Keep It Clean one is brilliant. It has a weightless feel to it and doesn’t actually make the hair feel like it’s dirty or has more product in it which some dry shampoos can do. I really do like this one and its definitely the stand out product of the Keep It Clean range for me. Out of all of the products, this is the one I’ll repurchase.
The last product that I tried out from the range is the Lee Stafford Prep & Prime Weightless Shield Primer which is designed to reduce static, frizz and flyaways, boost nourishment and extend your hairstyle. I do think that it reduces frizz and static but in all honesty, I could take it or leave it as a hair product and it’s not something I’ll add into my daily routine as I don’t find the extra step to be effective enough.
The Lee Stafford Keep It Clean product range is all vegan friendly and cruelty free which is amazing and it all has their new floriental fragrance too. I must say, I really don’t like the scent, it just isn’t for me. Give me the original Lee Stafford fragrance any day; I could wear that stuff as a perfume! I also love the scent of the Cactus Crush range too.
All of the Lee Stafford products are available from Boots and you can even get a bundle of the full Keep It Clean range here.
