Default Any Parisian curlies here? I need a little help...

I'm heading to Paris for the summer for school and I don't want to fill my suitcase with stylers, sealers, and other hair faithfuls. I want to know if there is anything over there that would allow me to substitute. I henna regularly but I don't want to freak my roommates out so I'll be skipping treatments

Are there any good conditioners for co-washes, leave-ins, stylers and sealers that can be found in the drugstores or supermarkets for 3c/4a hair? I'll be leaving in Belleville so even though there is a large ethnic population I'm not going to be mixing shea butter on this trip.

Any thoughts?

I'm not in Paris but I would think you could get Anita Grant products while in france. I often think of going over seas myself and the one thing I would take a stock pile of would be a good conditioner. One that you could use for a wng, leave in and deep conditioner. You can find oils just about anywhere. Also I would think you could find aloe vera gel over there. Other wise I would bring a large jar of kinky curly since it last forever and a day. HTH

I'm taking my KCKT without a doubt but I can't use KCCC because it really does nothing for my hair except leave it wet for hours. I'm not sure if I should pack a conditioner because of all the France threads I've found they always mention this one condish that seems to work. But I don't want to hit Paris to find all my products over my clothes and I don't want to carry anything unnecessary. I don't want to have to worry about hair when I get there.

Always pack anything that can spill into a ziploc bag. They make them in varying sizes. I went to paris for culinary school and that is what we all did with no problems. Are there any gels that you do use? Donna Marie curling cream, eco styler or something. I would without a doubt take some conditioner and gel. You don't know how long it will take you to find conditioner and one you like.

You could also get braids before hand. Then all you have to worry about it having a conditioning spray and a cleaner. That would be the easiest thing I think you could do and not have to worry about your hair. If cost is a issue you could always do yarn braids.

I was just about to suggest this. Also the British Curlies site delivers to France, and they have pretty much everything.
