Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Irons Review

7.0Overall Score

Beauty innovation or a gimmick?

  • Product

As a fan of Lee Stafford‘s Bleach Blondes shampoo, I could only accept the opportunity I was given to review the company’s latest launch, coconut oil infused heat styling tools. The CoCo LoCo range includes a hair straightener, dyer, tong and wand. As I was planning to purchase a new hair straightener during the January sales, I chose to review the CoCo LoCo Irons. Although TRESemmé and Remington are my go to brands when looking for the best heat styling tools, I see no harm in trying something new, especially when it is a gift.

Although beauty innovation excites me, the concept of a coconut oil infused hair straightener did not as my hair loathes coconut oil and I hate the scent. Luckily, I could not detect or smell the coconut oil. In fact, I believe it is a gimmick as performance wise, this is a standard hair straightener. Nevertheless, I am impressed with Lee Stafford’s CoCo LoCo Irons. The size is normal, the expected. I like the colour but I can see many finding it a little too childish. Prior to using the hair straightener, I noticed a small chip, which tells me it is not going to stay pink. I don’t mind, as I won’t be using it regularly.

The highest temperature is 200°C, the lowest, 120°C. The LED temperature display is a brilliant feature as well as something I always look for in any heat styling tool. This hair straightener doesn’t get as hot as my old one but that is not an issue as I only ever style at 180°C or lower. A pleasant surprise, the CoCo LoCo Irons heats up fast; within seconds of turning it on, it was ready to go! The ceramic plates are smooth, making curling and straightening a dream; you can straighten a section of hair with one pass. This is definitely the best hair straightener I have ever used to curl. As it is rounded in design, you can create gorgeous curls, effortlessly. Fairly impressed, if you are looking for a new hair straightener, check out Lee Stafford’s CoCo LoCo Irons!
