Soooo frustrated trying to find products!

I have kept mine in the fridge since I opened it because it's such a large tub that it'll take me forever to use it, and I'm sure it'd eventually go rancid at room temp.
2C/3A/3B - modified CG - fairly fine now, normal/low porosity/normal elasticity

Current Main Rotation: MG217 medicated or Aim2Health 'poos for scalp, Elucence cond., Spiral Solutions Protein & Deeply Decadent Cond., CJCCCC reg or lite,CJ Pattern Pusha,, Giovanni LA Hold Hair Spritz + lots more, sporadically

HG Method: Super Soaker + Smasters-ing, brief upside down diffusing w/360o diffuser then clips/clamps & air dry. Newly gray - stopped my henna glosses!

I was a little confused when I first opened it, but usually products that require refrigeration have it clearly labeled, for the safety of consumers.I couldn't find anything... so I thought most oils are fine in cupboard so I'll give that a go.

it seems fine, just a little runny. Now its hard again since I put it back in the fridge.

I am finding Mop C curl cream isn't working at the moment and am thinking it is a weather thing.

I keep my coconut oil in the cupboard. Hasn't gone yucky so far.

Been having some 'interesting' hair days so tried the lube today and hair behaved! Definately need to think about the weather.

i'm attempting to go cg after reading all the raves so i went out to buy some pairs comditioner which i've read a few of you guys recommend and they didnt have it in safeway!! are there any other cg friendly conditioners out there that would be suitable for co washing?

i also bought some Juice kinky cream for styling which appears to be cg friendly, does anyone know if it is or not? has anyone tried it out?

In terms of cg conditioners mostly it's reading the labels... the best bet is starting at your local health food store. Priceline having a brand called natural instinct (white bottle navy writing) which is ok, I leave it at my parents house for when I go home. Pears... MOP (salons or selected hair care stores) .. biolage conditioning balm is good and there jessicurl at some petra's. I guess if you haven't already read through this post and take notes of what people have used etc.Hopefully someone else will pipe in because I have the worst memory...

juice kinky cream (i tried to google it to see if I could get the ingredients.. bad idea...!) umm maybe you could post the ingredients and we could all have a look at it for you. Mostly you want to avoid anything with -cone,-xane and there's another one..(like I said bad memory!)

hope i was of some help...

thanks curlywurlygurly!!

i'll have to go check out priceline and see what they have, i saw the alchemy range in their catalogue which i've read about on here so i might try out that conditioner, would it be suitable for washing?

i know what u mean about googling the juice kinky cream - i tried it too lol
the ingredients are:
demineralised water (aqua), alcohol, pvp/dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate copolymer pvp, alycerin, ppg-26-buteth-26 (&) Peg-40 hydrogenated caster oil, hydroxyethyl ceilulose, dmdm hydantion, fragrance (parfum), amyl cinnamal, citronellol, geraniol, linalool.

I also use the Unscented, Very Gentle shampoo occasionally since it's sulfate-free. My hair is fine, but I have lots of it, so your hair might like something entirely different...

The good thing about Alchemy, and with Priceline stocking them, is that they're relatively cheap to experiment with. They are product junkie enablers!
for those melbourne curlies.. I found some more products to add to the list... macro whole food shop/cafe stock giovanni (it's on bridge road in richmond) although there was barely anything left when I was there; some direct leave in and some tiny bottles of a few conditioners. They are imported by a company.. that I seem to have forgotten just now, once I remember..I'll post there website

oh they were around the $15 mark I think

I've been lurking around here for a while. Just asking, is Natural Instincts shampoo & condish good? They come in the white bottle with navy/black text. The shampoo has no sulfates and has coco betaine which is good to cleanse with and the condish is cg friendly. Has anyone tried it and has it worked well?

Conditioner/Co-wash/Leave-in: Garnier Fructis Nutri Repair/Organic Instinct
Styler: Garnier Fructis 24-H

I haven't tried the shampoo, but I did try the conditioner some time ago and I didn't like it much. I think, from memory, it wasn't moisturising enough for me, but I do have quite thirsty hair.

I have the conditioner at my mum's house so I don't have to lug stuff around. From memory It's decent, the scent is rather strong though, EO's i think.
