Lee Stafford Coco Loco Review | Coconut Spritz and Blow & Go Genius Lotion

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Coconut Spritz and Blow & Go Genius Lotion

I love Lee Stafford and have tried a few of his products from the range for bleached blondes, my favourite being the Bleach Blonde Hot Shots (really recommend this to any blondes out there). When I was asked if I’d like to try out and review some of the products from the Coco Loco range I jumped at the chance. I actually can’t believe I haven’t got around to trying these sooner, when they were released I knew I wanted to get my hands on them. All the product in the Coco Loco range are made with coconut oil, which you will know (unless you have been hiding under a rock) is one of the best things you can put on your hair to look after it. Coconut is also one of my absolute favourite scents, so I knew I would most likely love this range.

The two products I have been trying out are the Coco Loco Coconut Spritz* and the Coco Loco Blow & Go Lotion*.

The Coco Loco Coconut Spritz (£5.99) is a leave in conditioner spray in a milky form, the bottle says ‘Looks like Milk – Acts like Oil’. The spray is designed to add moisture to the hair, detangle it, enhance shine and leave it smooth and refreshed. It is meant to be used on towel dry hair below blow drying. I love that it is in a spray form, I find it so much easier to just quickly and evenly spread this through the hair with a spray if you’re in a rush, like I always am!

I recently had permanent hair extensions fitted which I am trying really hard to look after as they are real human hair, this spray is just perfect to use on them. They can get quite tangled and this spray is so good and helping detangle them before brushing – I really recommend this if you have thick hair that gets tangled easily.

Another thing I love about this spray is that it leaves my hair feeling so soft and smooth. With bleached hair it can sometimes feel dry and this definitely helps manage that. After I have blow-dried my hair it feels so silky soft, shiny and it doesn’t weigh down the hair which I sometimes notice with oil type products.

The Coco Loco Blow & Go Genius Lotion (£6.99) is in way very similar to the Coconut Spritz as they are both designed to be used on towel dried hair and have some of the same benefits of using, such as creating softer and shiny hair and making it easier to detangle and blow-dry the hair. However, there are a few extra benefits of using this lotion which makes it my favourite of the two. It actually helps repair damaged hair, helps to prevent colour fading and provides heat protection. That’s a lot of benefits to get just from one product which is what makes it so great.

I use this by putting a small amount in the palm of my hands and then rubbing through the middle to ends of my hair (I don’t recommend using it on the roots as the coconut oil can make it greasier quicker). As I mentioned my hair gets quite tangled and this works wonders to detangle them and leave my hair feeling really soft and smooth.

As you can probably tell these products are quite similar but the slight winner for me is the blow & go genius lotion because of the added benefits of heat protection and preventing colour fading which is much needed for me with bleached blonde hair. I would say the spray is better if you are just looking to add some moisture and shine to your hair quickly, but if you have damaged hair and want something that really protects it and prevents damage I would recommend the lotion. I would definitely consider buying both of these again, I will definitely be taking the spray on holiday with me to refresh my hair quickly.

The final thing I have to mention about these products is that they both smell absolutely incredible. I am such a big fan of the scent of coconut - these are just beautiful – I can smell the coconut on my hair all day and it is so lovely and fresh!
