Hey guys

Just wanted to say hello and say I'm so glad to have found a site dedicated to us curlies! :iconbiggrin:

I've had a love-hate relationship with my hair since I was a kid - I think it's 3B, with maybe a bit of 3A, but I don't have any pics atm to show you.

I found a great hair mousse I've been using for a while (Bodyshop) but they discontinued it at the end of 2007 and I bought all the remaining stock in their shop, which has nearly run out now :crybaby: Sooo...I'm in a panic looking for a new way to style my hair, lol!

Look forward to chatting with ya!

    Hello!

    There's loads of alternative products out there - even in the limited range available in the UK. Body Shop do a cotton seed curl cream which is quite good and doesn't contain any silicones.

    Have a good read, there's some lovely people on here and they are soooooo helpful!

    Woo, thank you :)

    Been reading through some posts for the last couple of hours - hopefully I'll catch on with the lingo soon, hehe :wink:

    Already I've tried the "plopping" technique tonight and it worked great on my hair!

    I would have loved to recommend the hair mousse I currently use, if it wasn't discontinued that is.... :sad7: ah well, time to checkout what else is out there before my last bottle runs out, lol.
