Lee Stafford: Argan Oil from Morocco Launch

I popped down to London earlier this month to have a chat to Lee Stafford about his new Argan Oil from Morocco range. It has taken a few years to come together but as with most of the Lee Stafford range it's about getting the product right and creating something great. As the man himself says;
"I tried and tested these products again and again until I was happy that the range did exactly what it says on the bottle, driving my team half mad in the process!"
At the forefront is the Nourishing Miracle Oil, a bottle full of Moroccan miracles. Argan oil, for those who don't know, has become something of a wonder product lately. And with promises littered with words like manageability, nourishment and repair you can see why. Lee has created a range using Argan oil and combining it with other ingredients to give your hair the best start, from washing to styling.

The Nourishing Miracle Oil smells gorgeous. As with all Lee Stafford products, there is a distinctive smell, which I think is lovely. Not overpowering, but enough to keep your hair smelling fantastic all day.
Having experienced other oils, I have to say this comes out on top, smell and price wise. It's flying off the shelves at Boots at £11.99 for 50ml. A little does go a long way, this bottle will keep you going as you only need a couple of drops (even long haired ladies!) You immediately see benefits, and being able to use on wet or dry hair means it's incredibly versatile.
There are also a shampoo, conditioner, heat defence spray and nourishing treatment joining the Nourishing Oil in June 2011. Meaning no matter how you like to use Argan oil on your hair there's a product for you, and when used with each other as a haircare system you'll have nourished lengths in no time. I'll be reviewing these later for you.
As I'm sure you are aware, most of the time, argan oil treatments and products are exclusive to salons. Meaning that the price is high and the hassle to get hold of it higher. I love that Lee has released this range and it's available to the masses. I'm not going to lie, it is slightly more than you may pay for your products, but definitely worth it. He really does want us to have the best hair possible, and goes a long way to ensure the products are worthy.
Huge thanks to Lee Stafford and nbpr for hosting the launch. 
Have you got your hands on the Nourishing Miracle Oil yet? Do you think argan oil is worth trying?


  1. It sounds fascinating. I wonder what the difference is between Argan Oil and Virgin olive oil and if a cheapskate like me could get away with using Lidl's extra virgin on my locks instead?
    Chatting with Lee Stafford sounds amazing, nice spread, too. xxx

  2. Oooh, I like the sound of this. Will definitely be picking up a bottle. Lee Stafford sounds ace! x

  3. ooh sounds fantastic! I will definitley be willing to part with my cash for this!! will it work ok on oily hair types? xxx

  4. It sounds great. What do you recommend in terms of the different products in the range? I've never tried oil treatments before so am wondering if the others might be less scary to start with.

  5. Any hair type is fine with the range,the oil is incredibly light and doesn't weigh down hair.
    Alex,the shampoo and conditioner due in June would be easy and low maintenance.
    Vix,the argan oil is much lighter than other oils,not sure if there is a similar oil you'd find on your travels.
    Thanks for the comments you gorgeous bunch. X

  6. I'm tempted to try this, my hair is exasperating me at the minute!

  7. This sounds like it may be worth a try to make my mane a little shinnier.

    Kelly I am hoping you might be able to give me a little advise if you don't mind. I am off to a burlesque show this weekend in London and would love to style my hair to fit the occasion.

    If you nip over to my blog I have put more detail there and of course you can see the length of my hair on my pictures!

    I have no clue what to do with it. Please help.

  9. Kel, all I can say is I WANT THIS! :) Shiny haggis? I can't remember the name of the oil im using just now... but I would love to try some of the argan oil. I like Mr Stafford more and more each time you post about him, he seems lovely xx

  10. can you straighten your hair after this?

  11. jsd, yes you can, you'd use it on damp hair, blow dry then style however you wish.
    It doesn't weigh the hair down or make it greasy, the oil is very light.
