Review: Lee Stafford Breaking Hair Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve been struggling with my hair for the last 3-4 months. I have no idea what’s happened or what triggered it but my hair started to break and fall noticeably. Every time I would brush my hair, especially after washing, I was left with tons of it on my clothes! I could cry my eyes out, especially since my hair is very fine which creates the illusion of flat hair. So the  idea of loosing anymore hair was a nightmare.

I set off on a mission at Boots to search for the product that could help, save my hair and my dignity. I remembered reading reviews about products by Lee Stafford so I decided to go for both, his Breaking Hair Shampoo as well Breaking Hair Conditioner. Boots (see the whole range here), as always, was tempting me with their offer of 3 for 2, begging me to part with my hard earned cash, yet again. Therefore, apart from those two products I got My Big Fat Retro Setting Lotion (that I absolutely love!).The review should be up next week.

What did they say:


  • Strengthens
  • Repairs hair’s structure
  • Reduces breakage
  • Smoothing


I would definitely recommend buying both, shampoo and conditioner together. If you re planning on getting only shampoo, definitely consider getting and using a moisturising conditioner as well. This is a must. The shampoo is drying my hair making it impossible to comb without damaging and breaking my hair!! I have read on the internet that this is due the keratin in the product and keratin makes them dry but strong. Hmm, I don’t know about that, I didn’t have time to use conditioner once and while I was struggling to comb my hair, they were visibly breaking.


The consistency of the conditioner is a bit unusual if I compare it with others. I find that I have to use a lot of each product since they don’t lather very well, making it quite pricey in the long run. But the conditioner was definitely working, making it easy to comb my hair, making them quite nice and silky.

These two products have become part of my hair care routine and I’m now at the bottom of both bottles. Will I buy this again? I’ll probably pass. After 2 months of religious usage of Lee Stafford Breaking Hair Shampoo and Conditioner I can’t see any difference. 

I’ve also tried Moroccanoil Oil Treatment, my post here, which has become by far the best product so far. If you’re a bit short on cash but strugling with damaged hair, have a read of my Review of Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque and see if this might be optional for you.

My big fat question for today? Have you ever used this product? What do you think? If not, what helps you with your hair that breaks?

    Hello, sorry to hear this, but I use a hair mask 1-2 times a week. Leave it on over night. I use Andrew Barton and it makes my hair all soft and healthy. Also, might seem a bit minging but try to not wash your hair as much as the natural oils help repair itself. I just came across your blog now, and its lovely. I follow you on GFC. I can't wait for your next post! Let us know how you get on!

      Thanks for your advice! I'll have a look where I can try the Andrew Barton mask. I've actually heard about not washing hair as often and I tend to do that over the weekends…when I know I'm not leaving the house, haha. Thank you for all your advices xx
