so is it just me or when someone says that at Priceline you can get the "betty boo balmy butter super duper penetrating frizz killer conditioner" oh, and its in a red bottle...
you get to priceline and stare at bottles for an hour and give up?
im a bit visual so i decided to scope out perth's (and probably available in all states id say) CG friendly stuff. I only got a few because there was a sea of options and after reading so many labels you kinda just get hungry and head for the food court...mmm...foood.
first ill mention 3 that I didnt get a photo of due to stores not letting me or me forgetting to with one.
two are available at PRICE ATTACK
DE LORENZO ALLEVI8 conditioner - CG friendly, $35 for a HUGE bottle on sale. Its thin, so its good for co-washing, but ive been using it as normal conditioner and its been doing the job just fine!
MATRIX BIOLAGE - cant remember which one because i couldnt get a pic. but one of those are CG friendly. about $28 a bottle i think.
the third you can get from priceline and was on sale this week for $2 and its the popular PEARS conditioner. 3 fragrances to choose from. CG friendly.
here are the ones with fotos and prices:
the most expensive, Alchemy. about $28 a bottle from Priceline, more at the health food store, a bit less at Terry White Chemist. Many Fragrances and types to choose from it is sulfate, cone and pretty much everything free. Perfect CG stuff. too pricey for me but if you can afford it go ahead!

next we have a NATURES GATE TEA TREE CALMING CONDITIONER. perfect for itchy flaky scalp, or people who like smelling all herbal like. eew. each to there own. its $10 for over 500ml. pretty well priced for what it is. Available at PRICELINE
be careful with other natures gate products, all the ones i checked had cones. i stopped looking halfway thru the range.
next is ORGANIC INSTINCT NATURAL CONDITIONER another one without all the nasties, very CG friendly, and very nice on the pocket. you get a whole Litre for $20. smells kinda herbal too, but not as much as the tea tree one. available at PRICELINE
next is Tresseme, although tresseme has been in Australia for a few yrs, we have only just got the TRESSEME NATURALS line. They have a cone free conditioner and a LOW sulphate poo for the pooers out there. its $10 a bottle and widely available from places such as COLES, PRICELINE & KMART. so people in remote areas will prob be able to get this one soon.
next, something new for the curly kiddies out there, FINALLY. Its also the NATURAL INSTINCT brand, its a shampoo and conditioner both like the adult version, with no nasties of any kind in them but a bit gentler. its $7.99 per 250 ml bottle. So, only a dollar more than the sulphate infested Johnsons baby "conditioning" shampoo. Im using the conditioner on my curly toddler and its great stuff! recommended!
available at PRICELINE
last conditioner, but certainly not least, is the inexpensive, thick consistency conditioner GARNIER FRUCTIS NUTRI-REPAIR conditioner. Cone free. Be sure to get the right one because Garniers conditioners all look similar but most are cone'd, Its $4 on sale, so probably $5 or $6 not on sale. available at PRICELINE and probably some supermarkets.
GEL....OH GEL. I couldnt find much. There is a red tub of Taft gel that is cone free... also a cheap huge pump bottle of stuff crazy clarks has, cant remember the brand, its a no name one, but it smells like cigarette butts! Both cone free, but both have alcohol Denat in them, which is apparently a no go for curls. so unless your not fussed with alcohol content just go for it.
otherwise, this one is alcohol free, cone free, clear, lightweight and not sticky. Comes in a nice big squeeze bottle, is only around $5 and just rocks my world at the moment:
TAFT (SCHWARTSKOPF) haha so spelled that bit wrong... MEGA STYLING GEL (extreme hold)
now dont be scared off by the mega extreme part. I almost didnt get it because im not fond of the wet or crunchy look, but its actually fabulous. It starts off wettish, but because its so light, when it dries it just takes away the frizz without it looking like you have much product at all.
It is also guy friendly because it doesnt smell like a field of flowers and unicorns. Its a subtle scent.
available at PRICELINE and SOME chemists.
i hope this has been helpful to some Aussies.
i know product seeking can be so difficult in the first stages. There are alot of LOW POO options at priceline. Most are mid-range priced. There are probably a few more conditioners but i did have a real good look thru so this is the bulk of it for now.
anyways, happy hunting!
