I am coming to the USA next week and am making a shopping list of things to buy. So far I have on it
HE TT mousse and gel
Deva light gel (I've used it before and didn't like it, but my stylist used it and it looked awesome)
Deva- set it free
Suave Captivating Curls Mousse.

My hair type is in the signature below, what other essentials should I buy?
UK curly.

3a-ish, with bits of 3b ringlets underneath and 2b/c waves on canopy. Medium coarse, normal elasticity, normal porosity (now know thanks to Curl Wizard analysis).

No poo- Palmers conditioning cleanser
DT- Jessicurl WDT or Darcy's Pumpkin
Styling- John Frieda curl controller gel
Don’t like- Deva NoPoo, JC CC, JC CQ, KCCC, plopping.
Loves air drying gentle scrunching with microfibre towels
Don't like plopping, pixie method diffusing

    My recent fav is Cantu curl reactivator cream. Gives my 3b curls a good twist.
    I co wash with Suave cond. I think aloe type. Best thing I did was only co wash longer before I shampooed.
    Garnier (?sp) leave in cream, smooth... is ok in a pinch for me.
    I like to add a few drops of jojoba oil sometimes to my leave in's if my hair feels real dry.
    Tresseme and Aussie for rinse out conditioner.
    These are the ones I use that I know you can fine in the stores,walmart, target (great selection at Target),etc
    I'm not sure if they all are gq friendly but it is a start. Have a great time in the US.

    Suave coconut conditioner. Buy some early and then, if you like it, stock up. For under $2 a bottle, it is amazing. I have actually started checking luggage when heading to the states just so I can bring some back lol

    Garnier Pure Clean Gel......Great stuff and cheap. I've gotten it for as little as two or three dollars with coupons or sales.
