Yey a site with info for my type of hair, very hard to get any information and products for my type of hair in Australia. Hairdresser dont have a clue with how to deal with my hair. Looking forward to finding out more. Stopped relaxing 10mths ago because of serious breakage to hair. Im transitioning using ceramic irons and tongs.

    Hi Shimmy, I hear you about the lack of understanding amoung hairdresses about curly hair. I am constantly having to ask for taming products after they and cut and tryed to style my hair they don't seem to get it that if I leave thier salon without product I will frizz up like a french poodle lol. Also I had a night mare experience in one salon where a head hairdressor was working on my hair and her apprentice was told to do something with my hair and she waltzed over and started brushing my dry hair. OMG :oops: My hair instantly transformed into a witches nest of frizz, by the time she was half way through I was very upset and she had to go and get her boss to fix it lol.

    I am in Oz as well and at the moment my favorite products are Sebastion potion #9 (leave in conditioner) and I use Fudge shaper to try and tame the frizz and define the curl. I am always on the look out for better products. :)

    Haven’t found any good specific curl products. I use Kerastase shampoo for dry/damage hair (orange bottle) and Kerastase leave in treatment for conditioner. Started using them after my relaxer disaster and makes my hair feel soft. I use GHD iron oil for heated irons and tongs to protect hair. I use Kereastase oleo relax after flat ironing and hot tongs for anti frizz/ definition and shine. Looking for product that make each curl look defined, adds a little weight because need more lenght without being crunchy. Any suggestions???
