“Banishes frizz for hair that’s smooth as chiffon”
Everyone says they wish they had curly hair….but they mean NICE curly hair. My hair is naturally wavy/curly…sounds like a dream but in reality my hair is a fuzzy, unruly, mad, thick mess!
I’ve tried everything to embrace the curls…mousse, creams, waxes, sprays….they don’t work!
I’ve been toying with the idea of trying the Lee Stafford herE come the CurLs range for a while, seeing as how I seem to love EVERYTHING Lee Stafford. I decided to give the Control Creme a go….and I was pretty impressed!
HOW IT WORKS
This rich calming cream weighs down curls, banishes frizz and separates curls for beautiful definition and hair that’s ‘smooth as Chiffon.’
You use the equivalent of a cherry in the palms of your hands and spread through wet hair, gently twisting with your fingers to form curls.
The look can be repeated the next day using a spritz of water and a little more creme.
Just a note: the texture is quite like the fibre putty type styling creams and it is noticeable when it’s in your hair – as in when you touch it!
HOW I USED IT
I tried the Control Creme in a couple of different ways.
The first was with my Aurora Band. I washed and dried my hair and then ran some of the creme through my ends. I rolled it up in the Aurora Band and went to sleep on it. This is how it looked the next morning:
The second way I used it was after swimming, I put some of the creme in and let it do its natural thing and then I put a couple of structured curls in to the top with my curling wand. That looked like this:
Those curls lasted all day and then I slept on them and I ended up with beachy waves the next day….and this is what I looked like in the late afternoon/evening of day two:
So all you curly haired girls, if you’re looking for a product to tame your unruly hair and help you embrace your natural curls…this may be it! PS. IT SMELLS AMAZING!!!

I’ve been using this product for about a month now, and despite my skepticism when I started using it – it actually works! I basically felt there was no hope for my hair without finally going for that trim I’m so desperately in need of! At €10.99 a tub, I was thinking I should hold off until I actually cut my hair and then start using it – but I didn’t! And I’m so glad!
I mentioned before that I took my recommendation from AllRosie. She said one thing that I completely forgot about after I started using it – that it can be drying on the ends! She was right, I’ll explain below! Oops!
What is it:
“Protein based complex to fertilize your follicles, creating a healthy environment on the scalp to help hair grow faster and reach its maximum potential length.”
How to use it:
*Use between Shampooing and Conditioning hair.
*After Shampooing, scoop out the equivalent of an egg and massage into hair from roots to ends. Leave in for 5 minutes and then condition as normal.
I interpreted “an egg sized amount” to be the actual inside of an egg. This amount works well for me, sometimes a little more. I’ve had around 8 or 10 uses out of this now. Below you can see how much I’ve actually used – I’d say somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 of the tub!
What I Thought:
This product, definitely has done exactly what it said it would do for my hair. There’s a noticeable inch or two of hair growth! In the photos below I’ve worn the same top, as it conveniently has the XOXOX pattern across it – so you can actually see the hair growth. This was the best way I could think of showing it!
Of course, and this always MUST be mentioned about all Lee Stafford products, this stuff smells amazing and your hair smells great afterwards!
This is a definite winner for me. As I said already, I was a little skeptical and you may be too – but I’ve seen proof now!
Having read a few reviews online beforehand, I honestly thought I was going to start skipping my conditioner, because this sounds so much like a conditioning treatment, but it’s not! It feels completely different to a conditioner when it’s actually in the hair, it’s hard to describe – it’s almost like shampoo that doesn’t foam. Having said that, the first time I used it, although my hair hadn’t miraculously grown or anything, I noticed it was softer and shinier.
After a couple of uses I realised my hair had become quite dry. Unfortunately I put this down to the fact that I had changed my conditioner and I continued to use the product on the ends of my hair! Oops! So if you have particularly dry or damaged hair, you may want to just focus more on your roots and scalp. So just note, this is not a conditioner!
I’m pretty sure after a trim I’m really going to see the full potential of this product, so I may be back with another update!
Let me know if you try it, or if you have come across any great finds like this lately!
