Hi I am new here and need some advice

I am an Aussie currently living in Micronesia and am going back to Australia next week and I so need to stock up on products. I am more then confused after reading NC on what I should avoid and what I should use. I think I am a 3a-3b and currently use a combination of biolage/redken/joico kpak shampoo conditioner and always a leave in CO too (but I usually just brought a variety and hope for the best).

What products don't have silicones in them and does anyone have any reccommendations?

thanks so much in advance and I look forward to getting to know you all!!

    Welcome to the boards :)

    I'd recommend the Pears conditioners (coneless AND cheap) and Biolage conditioning balm (which is pretty expensive, but worth it - it lasts a long time and is really moisturising).

    On what to avoid - my basic understanding is to avoid silicones and sulfates, but there's a lot of stuff on the general hair board about protein which I won't even pretend to understand. As for what to use, I'll try pretty much anything that doesn't have silicones/sulfates in it, seeing as that limits the possibilities enough already.

    welcome.. :D

    I agree with amda re: pears and biolage.
    I also suggest if you haven't already checking out this thread
    http://www.naturallycurly.com/curltalk/showthread.php?t=56414

    lots of products suggested there..

    also maybe if you want share which state you're from so that other aussies near where you'll be will be able to chime in?

    I know there is a thread somewhere with really helpful basics...with links to other threads. If you're really lost google curly girl routine you should get some "how to's"

    good luck and welcome aboard :D
