Moving to London! What do I need?


I'm a United States native who's studying abroad in London for six months in January. I'm fully natural, but I just started really taking care of my hair a few months ago. I would describe my hair as mostly very tight curls, a few kinks & some frizz around the edges (3c/4a for reference), very thick, very dry, medium to coarse strands & low to normal porosity. My hair hates straight oil to seal, but loves coconut oil to prepoo.

I usually shampoo once a week with a natural sulfate free shampoo & condition with a natural silicone free conditioner. I use a moisturizing leave in & gel to styler. Sometimes I use a cream or butter for twist outs or if I'm bunning it. I use mainly use the Shea moisture & curl junkie lines, but I'm also getting into target's curls line.

I'm not sure how available these products are in the UK or where I can buy them. I'm open to any suggestions pertaining to where to buy them or similar products. Should I travel with the products I already have or buy them there? I also need help with caring for my hair in the cold! I've lived in Southern California my entire life & it's never been something I've worried about until now.
