I’ve been blessed (or cursed) with a head full of wavy hair since birth. I use straighteners every single day, without them it’s not a pretty sight I assure you. Think of a cross between Worzel Gummidge and Diana Ross and you are halfway there. My old straighteners have seen better days so when I was asked if I wanted to review the new Lee Stafford uBunTu Oils Straight & Juicy Irons, of course, I said yes.
The uBunTu Oils Straight and Juicy Irons come in a gorgeous hot pink and lime green colour. They are professional quality and the plates are infused with uBunTu oil from Africa. The oils help to leave your hair feeling pampered, restored and full of juicy goodness.
The straighteners also have lots of other great features like:
Fast 60-second heat up time.
A 60-minute auto shut off for safety.
Variable temperature with LED indicator.
They straighten and curl.
360-degree swivel cord.
Lockable switch to protect the plates.
What Did I Think
I have used some of the Lee Stafford hair products before, but I didn’t know there was an electrical beauty range available too.
After washing and drying my hair I set to work with the straighteners, sectioning my hair as usual.
Firstly, I love how smooth these straighteners are to use. They are really comfortable and lightweight to hold. I also found that the oils on the plates helped them to glide through my thick hair easily, I have had some snagging in the past with other models.
There was also none of the usual static I have experienced with other straighteners in the past which is a huge bonus.
I really liked that I could adjust the temperature myself. I need a higher temperature for the thicker parts of my hair and a lower temperature for the delicate parts like my fringe. I think one of the biggest advantages these straighteners have over similar competitors is the ability to control the temperature with the LED display.
I was really happy with the results, my hair felt lovely and smooth. It also looked glossy and really healthy. I would definitely recommend these straighteners if you are in the market for a new pair. I also think they would make a lovely Birthday or Christmas present.
As you know I do love a bargain and that’s certainly what these are. Don’t worry though, the quality hasn’t been compromised at all. They are available from Amazon for £29.99 which I think is a fantastic price.
