GIFTED: Recently Caitlin had her hair straightened for the first time at the hairdresser and loved it so when we were asked to test the Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Irons, she was very keen!
My hair is now shoulder length but Caitlin’s hair is long and thick with a slight curl (how I envy her!)
The straighteners are nicely designed and are a great girly colour. They are lightweight with a decent 2m length swivel cord.
We liked that you can lock the plates and can also vary the temperature anywhere from 120 degrees c up to 200 degrees c. The temperature is helpfully displayed on an LED screen.
The ceramic plates in the Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Irons are infused with coconut oil to keep hair shiny and smooth. I wasn’t totally sure about this addition and I was expecting a coconut fragrance which wasn’t there. There is nothing obvious to see.
That said, the straighteners did a good job on Caitlin’s thick hair and were very easy to use. The lightness of them helps I found and they are long enough so that your hands are not too near the heated plates when you use them.
We found they heated up very quickly so you do need to be careful. I did not use any product on Caitlin’s hair and we followed Lee’s instructions by combing downwards with a tail comb and then following with the straighteners.
Lee recommends that you use a heat protection spray which we will do the next time we use the irons.
Caitlin loves her straight hair and went straight into her Instagram pose!
I think this is a great value for money straightener, ideal as a first time buy and it compared favourably to my GHDs.
I also liked that the product switches itself off automatically after 45 minutes, although you obviously have to be very careful where you leave it!
You can use these straighteners to create curls and flicks too and there’s a guide in the instruction booklet that comes in the box.
There’s also a 24-month guarantee for this product if you register your purchase with Lee Stafford.
