question for the dutchies on this board!

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 icon_wink.gif)

    I'm still experimenting with products (it's only been three weeks since I got rid of shampoo + brush), which I buy mostly at the supermarket, the Body Shop or a health food store (henna). I used to buy Curl Straightener at the Hema because it was the only product that helped me to get rid of tangles, but it made my hair not only tangle-free, but dry and brittle as well.

    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 love most Gliss Kur products! Their Curl Activating Shampoo didn't do much for me, but the Liquid Silk line is great.
    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!

    Yeah that girls has beautifull curls! I can only dream about that! icon_wink.gif

    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.

    Well, the last couple of days I tried a bit more of the serum, but I still can't see much difference. The serum makes my hair a bit more soft, but doesn't tame the frizz as much as I hoped it would. So I don't think I will buy it again, not when it's about 6 euro (I think, could be 7 or 8) for only 50 ml.

    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... :D
    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...

    yes, it's my real hair, stop staring at it and NO you can't touch it

    Greetings everybody,

    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 am more into the "natural"products.
    I order most of my products with 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) :D:D:D
