Hair Growth Treatment Product: Love it or Leave it?

Both of us are currently growing out our hair.  With that, we are trying to take better care of our hair so it grows faster and is healthier.  We’ve been cutting down on heat, as well as trying out new products that help with hair growth and/or improve the appearance of our hair.

There is one hair product that we have both been using for a few months (Rachel a bit longer) that we knew we had to share with you because it’s now one of our holy grail hair products!  (spoiler alert: it’s a love it product) Here’s the product:

Hair Growth Treatment by Lee Stafford


Description from Ulta’s website:
“For girlys growing their hair but never getting the beautiful long locks they desire. Your hair never reaching its maximum, glorious length is a frustrating, disappointing, upsetting nightmare! As hair grows it can get damaged and break, meaning more hair cut off, more often so your hair can never reach its glorious growth potential. This gorgeous, thick intensive treatment with Pro-Growth complex gives your hair strength from within by fertilizing your follicles, creating a healthy environment on your scalp to help hair grow faster and reach its maximum potential length. Its soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturizes the scalp, helping to keep it healthy and improving the volume and feel of your hair. Remember if the earth’s not nourished you¿ll never grow beautiful flowers!”

The container says to use it once a week for maintenance, but we use this product every time we wash our hair, which is every other to every two days.  After you have shampooed your hair, take about an egg size amount of this product and work it into your hair from roots to ends.  Leave this product on for five minutes and then rinse out.  Condition your hair as you normally would afterwards!

Where to Buy:
Ulta: $11.99
Target online: $18.99

Our Thoughts:
We both absolutely love this product!  It has definitely made a positive change in our hair growth.  Since starting to use this treatment,  we have both noticed that our hair is growing quicker and better.  Before using this product,   Rachel tried many other products to try and get her hair to grow because it wasn’t growing at all.  Nothing seemed to be working.  Now since using this hair growth treatment, Rachel’s hair is actually growing to where you can tell a major difference.  This product smells great as well, which is always an added bonus.  It has a sweet, “Lush” like scent.   We highly recommend this product to anyone who is having trouble growing their hair out.  As you can tell, this is definitely a “love it” product for us.

If there are any specific beauty products you would like us to review and give our thoughts on, please comment below and let us know!  We would also love to hear your thoughts on this product if you decide to try it out!

Have a great weekend!

Friday’s Shopping Haul

I spent my Friday afternoon eating and shopping in Des Moines with one of my best friends. I had been looking forward to this girls day for awhile and wanted to make sure I looked my best. Nothing bugs me more than having to wear a coat while out shopping so I decided to do a fun preppy layered outfit.



J. Crew Sweater | Old Navy Button Up (Similar) | Buckle Jeans (Similar) | UrbanOutfitters Boot

Socks (Similar) | Famous Footwear Boots (Similar) | J. Crew Necklace 

We started off our outing by eating at a downtown restaurant called Buzzard Billy’s. It’s one of my favorite places to eat downtown, second to Zombie Burgers. After we finished eating we headed to West Des Moines to go shopping at Jordan Creek Town Center. It’s one of my favorite places to go shopping because they have a great selection of stores and a mix of high and low end fashion.

We shopped around at several different stores, but the ones that I found the most success at were J. Crew and Ann Taylor. Both stores were having some great deals that I couldn’t resist! J. Crew had the deal of 25% off a $100 purchase or 35% off a $150 purchase. Of course I had to spend enough to get the discount. Then Ann Taylor had an additional 40% off sale items and select dresses for $29.88.

At Ann Taylor I couldn’t resist the dress deal and ended up walking out of the store with three dresses. My favorite part of all the dresses that I got from Ann Taylor are the leather detailing. I’ve been wanting to get more leather in my wardrobe with it being so in style right now and I was lucky enough to be able to find some great dresses with it.

J. Crew had such a great selection that it was hard for me to limit myself on what I should buy! I ended up picking a cream colored dress that I fell in love with as soon as I put it on, along with a simpler top with lace detailing at the bottom to dress it up more.

Needless to say it was a successful shopping trip and I can’t wait to wear my new clothes!
