About to spend 4 months in Buenos Aires...

And I live in New York and have access to any and all of the products discussed on this thread.

How will my PJ self survive?

Anyone have any recommendations? / Anyone from BA?

    Pack a suitcase full of hair supplies?

    Other than that, when I was in Peru, there were boticas on every corner with hair products. Not a huge selection, but if you're going to be there for four months, you probably speak Spanish well enough to figure out the equivalent -cones in Spanish. And the larger grocery stores carried quite a few hair products. I'm part of the cg on a budget crowd, so I'd be all for experimenting.

    OH! And, BA is a large city, so they probably have high end salons, just like Lima did, where you can get higher quality stuff if that's what you're about.

    Hope this helps :)

    I've spent 3 to 4 months in a small village in Mexico on a number of occasions, and I have always packed all of the hair products I need for the whole time. It's very hard to get personal hygiene and grooming items in that village - one year I couldn't even find a toothbrush!

    I wouldn't take the chance of not being able to find what I need - I'd pack the works just to be on the safe side.
