Curly girl from The Netherlands saying hi!

Hello everyone!

I'm a 20 year old girl from The Netherlands! I love to travel, to read, shopping, gaming, and much more.

I've been using the Curly Girl Method for 2 months now and saying it's the best thing ever happened to my hair is an understatement. I'm so glad I discovered the Curly Girl Method :D before my hair was wavy (looked like a 2B) and very frizzy. Now I'd say I'm a 3A!

Right now I'm still trying to find the perfect products. I'm from The Netherlands but now temporarily residing in Japan for studies. It's hard to find good products here! Luckily I brought a stash of hair products with me from The Netherlands and good thing we have the internet :) And wow, America has fantastic products compared to Europe! I've actually ordered some, can't wait till I get my package :)

I hope to learn a lot more about CG and products on this board, and above all, have a fun time!

I'm kinda scared to post pics but here are some anyway.

I love how CG often gives me ringlets =)

I can leave it completely untouched for 5 days =) no gel, no spray, no making it wet, nothing and I still have great curls. In fact, On the 2nd, sometimes 3rd day my curls look better than they do on the first day... no idea why.

Oh and I think I over-conditioned my hair now... ordered The Body Shop Cottonseed Curl Booster for some proteins, hope it will help!

    Welcome!

    Your journey sounds really interesting, by the way, and your hair already looks wonderful. And I totally agree with you, find HGs (holy grails) are incredibly difficult for most---but the search is kind of fun (assuming your hair looks fine without an HG).
    Hair Type: 3c/4a, Coarse, Med-High Density, Med-Low Porosity
    Curly since '09

    Another European, great! I'm from Germany and you're right: We don't get good products in Europe. I just ordered a huge package from iherb.com. I wonder, what the custom will say....
    I also love your curls, I would love to have them this way, but mine are different somehow. More curly than wavy.

    Have fun here!

    another dutchie :wave: your curls look really beautifull!

    You're absolutely right, in Europe/the Netherlands are good CG friendly products hard too find. There are some dutch webshops that are selling a lot of great brands like Jessicurl, Curljunkie, Kinky curly etc. I order a lot from these sites, or I order from the amazon site from the UK, these shippingcost are not that expensive ;-).
    hairtype 2b/C
    High density , low porosity, my hair absolutely hates some protein but once a 3 month a gelatine treatment
    Leave-in: Giovanni direct leave-in, Inecto coconut conditioner
    styling products: Gelebration spray, Etos styling gel strong, BHRG is my HG for hold and clumps :)
    method: Scrunch'n'pump, SOTC

    Thanks GoldenBlaze :)

    @Deborah<;3 Lots of Europeans here! :D And yes! The shipping costs are insane :( however, for Europe there is mariposaimport.com, and then there is iherb.com :D I love iherb! They have cheap shipping costs. I ordered a RO conditioner that looks very promising, and I ordered jojoba oil, argan oil and almond oil! :D
