Italiangermanmix and curlylicious, thank you for the complements!
I live in Australia, so I was unable to find pretty much any of the products I've read about on the threads, but I went to a store (priceline) and spent a whole lot of time choosing products, reading the ingredients list and asking for assistance. I ended up choosing a protein conditioner called 'Sukin'- which clearly states on the packaging that it's free of sulphates and a whole lot of other things. And as a leave-in I used the 'Al'chemy' brand. However, both of these products are apparently Australian made, so I'm unsure if you'd be able to find them overseas. I basically just chose products based on the ingredient list, trying to avoid the -cone, -conol, and -xane.
Thank you again!
