Hi :)

I wondered if anyone who also lives in Germany has any good recommendations for shampoos that are sulfate free. At the moment I use a baby shampoo by dm, which is sulfate free, and actually baby shampoos are the only ones I find when I try looking for a sulfate free poo. And then it seems that a lot of them also contain glycerin, which my hair doesn't like.
And then I wondered: I think I read that Methosulfate is a "better" sulfate that can be used in a CG-routine.
So any recommendations for shampoos with Methosulfate would be ok too?

    Hey, I make my own shampoos using ingredients and recipes from Hobbythek. I love them, with these shampoos I got rid of my dandruff and my hair stopped being oily. I totally recommend it !

    If you live in a small town, you can also get the stuff online from Jean Pütz Produkte But check first if there is a store in your town.
    They also sell ready-made shampoos which are a bit pricier. But making my own is pretty easy, it takes me a few minutes every few months. And it´s fun to customise the scents and ingredients.
    The first time you might have to spend a bit more money (I spent 20€ for the ingredients, because you have to buy bigger quantities than you need to make just one shampoo) but some of them you use very small quantities, so after 3 years there is still some stuff that I haven´t repurchased.

    Wow, that sounds really cool, but where do you get the recipes from? Do they "sell" them to you too, or do you just experiment? Cause for example, I wouldn't want my product to get rotten after a few days :)
    Yeah, I live in a really small village, so I might check out the online store thing ;)

    If you're willing to order anyway, you could try Aubrey Organics as well.
    Have you tried c/o washing?

    Hi,

    have you tried looking in a "Reformhaus" ;-) other than that, you can order here Lexies Curls - Pflegeprodukte für naturlockige Haare und mehr
    The shop is located in Germany, so you don't have high shipping fees. I recommend the Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo. The shop does not have as many products as curlmart or britishcurlies (where I like to order), but they are expanding their range.

    Liebe Grüße

    Hi,

    here's another wavy german looking for the HG.

    I think I found cones in one of the baby shampoos from the dm-brand, thats why I use one from bübchen. But I think there's glycerin in it too.

    Maybe you should read this thread: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/swap-board-eurocurlies/81206-germany-curlies.html

    By the way, I've never seen Lexies Curls products in a Reformhaus here. That's not fair! (well maybe i just didn't see it :D)

    Hi,

    what I meant is that you can find a sulfate free shampoo in a Reformhaus or order products online at Lexies curls. She sells a few the brands you can buy at Curl Mart.

    They give the recipes to you, they are also online. You add natural conservants, so things don´t go bad. Well, some other stuff has a limited time that you can store it, but shampoo lasts for ages.

    Also, the stores Müller, Rossmann and DM each have their own brand of cheap natural cosmetics (Alverde, Alterra etc), and their stuff is free from SLS, cones, parabens and other crap. I actually think that all these brands are actually manufactured by the same factory, and then packaged differently for each store, because the products are very similar and even the names and the packaging are alike.

    Hey curlies,

    I am a graduate student of business and I am writing my thesis on voluntary simplification of consumption, specifically the CG/no poo movement. A topic quite close to my heart, as well...

    I would love to interview any of you ladies, and men of course, to know your experience with the process and what motivated you in the first place.
    I am trying to get a decent sample of americans and europeans. I also speak fluent french and german, if that helps. I would really appreciate any PMs or if you can point me to some people who might be interested...

    Hallo meine liebsten :)

    This week I discovered a shop which is situated in Hamburg, it is called Curly Chocolate and they do have a lot of cg friendly products. :) I guess I just fell in love with the shop :-o

    I did order online since I do live in Austria (paid about 13€ for shipping) and am really looking forward to getting my products :love1:

    Definitely the shop with the best products I have discovered so far!

    Hallo deutsche curlies!

    Can we also talk about where everyone gets their hair cut? I live in Berlin and tried a place in Pankow with the CurlSys method 2 weeks ago.
    The cut seemed very rigid and non-personalized, she sectioned it as if it were a straight haircut, cut it wet, pulled everything straight as she cut it, didn't look at the natural divisions of curls (just took sections of all the same size). Then she cut a big curve into the bottom of each section.

    She did NOT know how to diffuse my hair, she ran her fingers through it the whole time so I had a Pusteblume on my head when she was done. (Then she nervously smiled and said, "It still stays behind your ears.") I actually requested her to thin it because I was so worried about triangle-head when I saw my reflection. It looks pretty good now with my own products, but from what I am reading against thinning shears, I basically asked the stylist to give me frizz. Even though my curls are looking good, I'm not sure how much was the haircut, how much is finally finding my hair's favorite products, and how much is the weather!

    So, the quest continues - do I try my next cut at the other Curl Sys place in Berlin, or do you know somewhere secret and magical?

    Hallo :)

    this is a little old, but why not collect some new information about German products? I haven't used sulfates or silicones in years but it's really not easy here. I have 3b/3c hair, low porosity but other than that pretty medium density and width. I just cut (and layered a tad bit!) my own hair to about shoulder length.

    The products I use are

    Shampoo: Yalia Shampoo (Denn's Biosupermarkt) Bambus und Lotusblüte. this does have some drying alcohols in it, but I don't use much and not very often so it is good for now. And of course I use a conditioner afterwards. But I want to switch to the (new?) seba-med daily shampoo. Have you guys tried it?

    I usually co-wash with Balea Spülung (mostly the Feuchtigkeitsspülung). I have not found an ideal co-wash product yet. The Balea ones also have some drying alcohols (isopropyl) in it but no protein as far as I can tell. And I am a little sensitive to proteins as I recently found out so I don't want to use them too much. For those who need protein, I would recommend aiko Repair Spülung by Müller Drogeriemarkt.
    What is reaaaally important for my co-wash product is the price. I do wash my hair every or every other day. I tried lasting it longer but it is not working for me. I touch it too much, the wind, I work out etc. Maybe I don't care enough ;) (even though I do use a satin pillow case)

    I do order products online (Curly Chocolate, iherb.com, Locken-Idol) but I refuse ordering something that will only last me two weeks.

    For a rinse-out conditioner, I used to use Alverde Glanzspülung, but yet again: drying alcohol. So I just started trying Garnier natural beauty Vanillemilch und Papayamark which I like. Protein-free, alcohol-free, but some ingredients puzzle me, I just don't know what they are... But I just ordered an American conditioner online because I want to try some things out. :)

    From time to time I use a protein-enriched conditioner such as the Aubrey Organis one (GBP), which I ordered on iherb (Warning: I had to pick it up at the customs office... :/)

    For my leave-in, I use my most expensive product, Kinky Curly Knot Today. It is the first "actual" leave-in I tried so I can't compare it yet, but it has lasted me sooo long and it is nice. But not really moisturizing so when I use it up I will probably switch.

    Styling: this is my main problem. I used gels with alcohols (Wella shock waves, alverde) for way too long and now I am trying the Gard Forming Fluid and Gard Styling Gel but I am not sure about them yet. I might actually give in and order the Shea Moisture stuff online... I have a curls cream (from iherb as well) which I use from time to time but it has proteins in it. I might try switching back to alverde or a L'Oreal studio line gel, too.

    Oh and I use coconut oil on my ends and a little on the rest of my hair after my leave-in. My hair does not like too much of it though.

    After styling (raking, scrunching and just a little of defining) I scrunch with a microfiber towel and put my hair up in a big T-Shirt turban. After taking it out, I let it sit for 30 minutes or so. I usually diffuse for just a few minutes to speed up drying but too much is frizzing my hair out. I let air dry (yep, it takes forever, thanks low porosity hair). But I don't mind...

    I am thinking that my hair gets frizzy and dry so easily because I used too much protein until recently and because Germany is keeping me from all the amazing hair products ;) Have you found some amazing things here? It neeeeds moisture!

    Sorry für den langen Post, liebe Grüße!

    Hello mglocke,
    I´m from Belgium but as I do most of my hair shopping in Germany I might have some ideas for you.

    Shampoo: don´t use it. I sometimes wash my scalp with Penaten Babywash or hair soap.

    Condish: I´ve tried almost every brand you can find at DM or Rossmann but compared to the brands sold here they had not much slip and were just not moisturising enough. So now I use the Alterra ( Aloe Vera Granatapfel is protein free) and Alverde hair masks. They are made for straigth hair so no worries about beeing to rich. You can also order from Aubrey Organics (White Camelia is my favorite) they have a german website - but that´s more expensive.

    Leave In: Best for me so far is As I Am wich I ordered at Locken Idol - it´s also protein free.

    Styling: cheapest and not drying is Eco Styler (also from Locken Idol) or homemade flaxseed gel.

    Oil: try argan oil - I know it´s expensive but I works very well on my hair. Edeka sells it at a reasonable price.

    Hope this gives you some ideas :)

    LG
    3b - fine - low porosity - low/medium density curls
    Pre-poo: Olive and Arganoil with Aloe Vera and Condi

    Cleansing: CV BBC/ ACV
    Condish: Drug store brands
    Leave-In: As I Am, SM Thickening Growth Milk
    Oils: Olive, Argan, Avocado, Grape Seed
    Styler: SM CES, Eco Styler Gel

    Hello,

    I`m from switzerland, near to germany, so i often buy products in germany too. I started with alverde products, even before i know about the cg method. The shampoos tend to dry out my hair and scalp.
    I then found out about cg and immediately i begun to search the whole online shops from switzerland for good products. I found a lot!

    available here are: (and for sure in germany too)

    faith in nature conditioner (some without glycerin)
    the body shop rainforest moisture and/or volume conditioner (without glycerin)
    Luminaris conditioner (without glycerin)
    Logona shampoos and conditioners
    Gliss Kur Ultimate Volume Conditioner (not the best, but without silicones)
    Sante shampoo jojoba care
    some of the lavera sensitive products

    so far, these are all i found here. Try to search for afro shops, they often sell things for curls, we have online shops that sell 4naturals, curls, eco stylers, mixed chicks and other brands from the u.s.
    oh and i`m envy for the three very good german shops you can order from, the postage in DE isn`t that much, but for switzerland... a little bit pricey.
    I often order from iherb to, i like the giovanni 50:50 Conditioner for co-wash, its light and does its work for me.
    I`m also doing some diy things, like PT`s and hair lotion, or FSG with additional ingredients. My hair loves protein, but hates glycerin and to much oil.

    i also found the garnier naturals conditioner. Sadly i found out that quaternium-80 is a watersoluble silicone. I hate silicones in my hair, doesn`t matter if they`re watersoluble or not, they build up.

    I`m a product junkie too :toothy10::goofy: i have a loooooot of products in my bathroom, didn`t found my HG`s, still experimenting.
    medium density, medium-high porosity, 2c/3a Curls, bright cherry red, growing out damage

    low-poo: Sante shampoo brillant jojoba care
    treatments: diy PT`s
    Conditioner/leave-in: TBS Rainforest Condi`s & pure gelatin
    styling: 4naturals spring back curling custard
    SOTS with a tiny little bit of coconut oil

    *don`t like polyquats, glycerine, silicones & too much oil

    Fraenzy Dankeschön :) ich liebe das Rot auch! ♥

    Yes i'd tested the sante jojoba care shampoo and liked it so far. I use it once a week. It has very gentle cleansers in it and some jojoba oil and you don't need much to get a clean scalp. If you try the conditioner from them, please let me know..

    There is also a new product line from rausch for dry hair with a moisture/sun protectant spray, but they're not in stores so far. Can't find the ingredients.. i'm curious to see whats in it...

    So, the quest continues - do I try my next cut at the other Curl Sys place in Berlin, or do you know somewhere secret and magical?


    But from what I can tell by your description this person did not properply train.

    I just rang a hairstylist here in Berlin who instantly told me that she does not find this " 2, 4 5" divisions of hair types very helpful. She was very nice, rang me back when her assistant had no clue over the phone, and has mixed (afro/euro) hair herself with one parent being from Nigeria).

    But my main concern is that 2c/3a fine hair is different than 3c coarse hair and needs a totally different approach.

    She wants to cut my hair wet but I had really bad results this way because ppl never were able to predict the movement and length of my wavy curls.

    She offered me to come round and her advising me, without a haircut yet and without having to pay for it. To be honest I kind of lean towards learning to cut my hair myself and just buying myself a pair of good quality scissors because it was only cut somewhat well here in Berlin. Either the haircut doesn't last very long (which I suspect the Syscurl method as well), or the layers were wrong or it was thinned out like in your case.

    The best haircut I ever had was cut dry, with a comb. The person sprayed a mix of destilled water and condi in my hair, did not pull, and sectioned the layers on the Deckhaar not to the sides but horizontally, cut them vertically /in nem schrägen Winkel ..it fell really beautifully and lasted for a long time, no Spliss, nix.

    The haircut I have now is in V shape, which is good for the ends ( my longest hair is bis zur Taille/a bit longer, kinda tailbone). But the hair above it is way to long at the back and pulls and drags my hair down less than 2 hours I have washed it. I desperately need to find a person who cuts my Deckhaar...but they always struggle because they want to long layer it all the way through and that doesn't work with such a length so I think I will have to experiment myself.

    So much to the haircut. Are some Berlin curly heads perhaps interested in a collective order from curly chocolate or if cheaper even from the UK, US or elsewhere? If shipping costs are divided this may as well be tons cheaper than ordering in Germany.

    Or even better, we could, as suggested, create our own condi shampoo, leave in condi, deep condi, etc? Purchase oils that are then divived? Even if only one other person is intersted this would already significantly drop the costs..and that way more stuff can be tried out?

    I have sorta done some CG methods for the past 10 years like hardly ever brushing it unless with condi in the shower but my products were always from Friseurbedarf and with alcohol and sulfates which I both now want to quit and stick to the CG method more methodically. Would love to start with some other curly heads together! :love3: so we will all soon look like this: :queen: ;)

    I know you posted this a while ago, but where did you buy Yes to Carrots? I found it in the UK a while ago where it isn't widely sold and it is perfect for my hair!!! I only brought one (huge) bottle back to Switzerland with me. Do you have to order online?

    Hey German Curlies,

    I just got my first order of KC products and I love KCCC, but my boyfriend hates the smell of vanilla and coconut. And it's also too sweet for me.
    Could you recommend anything available in Germany that is comparable and not as sweet, in the best case does not smell like coco or vanilla at all?
    Is any of you coming from Darmstadt or Frankfurt?

    Thanks for your help,
    Stef

    Hello German curlies! :)

    So, my sister is in Leipzig and I want to order from her some curly hair products. As I am not from Germany I don't know any curly cg friendly hair products you have, because we don't really have any. :(
    So if you have some recommendations on which curly hair products to buy, where and how much does it cost, I would really appreciate it. :)
    I am looking for a good leave-in, because I don't have any leave-ins in my country. Also gels, shampoos and conditioners.
    2C in a back, 3A in front
    Low/normal porosity
    Medium/low density
    Good elasticity
    Short length

    Trying:
    Babylove shampoo (no sulfates)
    Alverde Nutri-Care conditioner - Almond oil and Argan oil (no silicones)
    Alverde Syling gel...some long words on German... (no silicones)
    FSG (low dew points)
    Coconut oil as hair mask

    I have some products that I tried that I might not have liked a lot of it I am in Wiesbaden, Let me know if your interested.
    Hey German Curlies,

    I just got my first order of KC products and I love KCCC, but my boyfriend hates the smell of vanilla and coconut. And it's also too sweet for me.
    Could you recommend anything available in Germany that is comparable and not as sweet, in the best case does not smell like coco or vanilla at all?
    Is any of you coming from Darmstadt or Frankfurt?

    Thanks for your help,
    Stef
