I'm just wondering where you buy your hair care products and what are your favourites products? I usually buy my products at toko's or afro hairshops (don't really know how to call it )

My current favourites are:
conditoner - Gliss Kur Liquid Silk/Body Shop Banana Conditioner/Body Shop Brazilian Nut Conditioner
styling - Gliss Kur Cream Wax/Hema Curl Activator (not that often, it causes tangles)
colouring - Spiritual Sky Henna, Acajou
Still looking for the perfect styling product, so this list could change...
I forgot to mention that I also use the 'ontwar/anti-klit spray' and I recently bought the Liquid Silk Anti Frizz Serum. I don't know if it's working yet, I haven't seen much result, but I think I haven't used enough of the stuff. It says 'a few drops' on the package, but that clearly isn't enough for long hair!
The only thing I can't stand are their ads, with the girl with the long, shiny, bouncing black curls - my hair will never ever look that gorgeous, and they shouldn't rub it in like that!
I haven't tried the other stuff from gliss kur, but maybe I'll try it. Let me know if you like the serum. I'm now using a serum from loreal. Its OK but nothing special.
The serum has only three ingredients, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethiconol and Parfum. The first one is some kind of silicone and not water soluble, and Dimethiconol is a silicone polymer (whatever that may be). This probably explains why the serum seems to leave of lot of build-up.
I've discovered that my hair doesn't like silicones very much, so I want to stop using them (although that means saying goodbye to the Liquid Silk Conditioner - it makes my hair soft and shiny, but it also weighs the curls down).
O, another thing I don't like about the serum is that it says Inflammable on the bottle!
Recently I've discovered Pink Grapefruit Anti-Frizz Miracle in De Tuinen shop. The little sachet contains the conditioner and anti-frizz serum. It works miracles and your hair smells lovely! It makes my hair look almost as beautiful as the girl in the Silk Gliss Kur ad...
Have you got any more tips about other stuff to keep your hair extra flexible and bouncy? I'm looking especially for some styling foams...
Conditioning: Schwarzkopf cremespoeling zijdeglans
Styling: Garnier Fructis Surf hair
Andrelon direct gladmakende creme
flax seed gel (I finally found flax seeds at De Tuinen)
Im still looking for the perfect hair product for my curls. And a non-greasy one too *sigh*
Some products that are 'just ok': John Frieda Frizzease products, Wave Nouveau prd (although its rather greasy).
Jessicurl products do not work for me,unfortunately.
I order most of my products with http://www.sisay.nl/index who has great products.
I really loooovveee the jojoba jelly, but the hairmilk (black as a daisy and marley's own both) are also very nice.
to tame frizz I use the jojoba jelly. every month I use the Natural laxer which softens my hair and takes care of breakage (which my hair does not do anymore)
