Anywhere I Can Buy DevaCurl in WA?? cross post
 
Hey. I really want to try out DevaCurl One Condition (cause I'm a PJ at heart :)) and I was browsing ebay australia and I found the conditioner. It was about $22 but an extra $35-$40 for postage from US to worldwide. Paying $50+ for a 12 oz bottle of condish is out of the question, my wallet DOES NOT agree with it.

Have any CGs on this board got DevaCurl One C and where did they get it?? Especially in Western Australia?? Sometimes I wish there was Devachan in australia but that prob won't happen ever =\ (maybe they'll come for a tour around here like a visit or something, but that's just my imagination getting to me lol)

Bump-o
Ok it's not really IN australia but I found a cheap 1L bottle on FragranceNet.com. looking good! better than paying $100+ for a 12oz. hmmm

apparently you can get it on ebay also, i'm not sure on what the prices are like though.

Yeah I checked there too, it's pretty expensive but not as bad as amazon though. FragranceNet is probably the best I've found so far, not that I've checked a lot of sites either, oh well.

I've got some on order now :) the p&h isn't bad ($14ish AUD)

curlywurlygurly 08-09-2009 12:38 AM

word of warning last time i looked at ordering off amazon they couldn't send any of the hair products - some weird restriction?? *shrugs*

AlannahAngel 10-03-2009 12:11 AM

I know this thread is long gone but I spoke with Lorraine Massey (facebook friends :)) & she said that Deva should be available in Australia soon! Finally! That's good news I guess....just wanted to let u know :o)

Im in Perth as well....I have searched in vain over the years trying to find anything decent for my hair...has anyone ever ordered anything off Curlmart on here?
Has anyone in Perth found anything good for their hair!! As in without all the silicones and other chemicals?

AlannahAngel 10-03-2009 02:23 AM

Well I use Pears conditioner. You can find it at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse & IGA, I haven't found it anywhere else.....I mix olive oil & honey with it to sort of enhance it. It gives it lots of slip (detangling) & moisturising properties too. There's also Alberto Balsam conditioner @ IGA, Sukin conditioner @ health food shops like Good Life, Avalon Organics is sold there too, Australian Organics conditioner at Coles, I think there's a brand called MooGoo who make a conditioner & shampoo sold at Good Life too.

You also want to look for alcohol-free styling products too. There's V05 wet look gel sold @ pretty much any chemist or supermarket and I found a gel called Pantene Sculpt & Fix at Wizard warehouse in Newpark Girrawheen. I also found a conditioner called 'Graham's Natural Conditioner' and Organic Instinct conditioner' there as well. We have a couple options to choose from, but the USA curlies are a lot more priviledged with all their products, lol

baf65 10-03-2009 07:05 AM

I saw some products round at our local chemist today...David Babaii for Wildaid, Seven Wonders, and another called Grown which had a shampoo and conditioner.....i wonder what those are like!
I am half tempted to ship some USA stuff ! At the moment tossing up whether to stay curly or try the Coppola keratin stuff

AlannahAngel 10-03-2009 07:29 AM

Yes, I was tempted to order & I did eventually, but the product never arrived so I just got a refund :\ I'm always on the look out, every store i go to i HAVE to always look in the hair section, lol, even if i'm broke, I always look :o)

Btw, is coppola keratin like a chemical straightener? I would stay curly if i was you! At first it seems like a big adjustment and sometimes I even though about relaxing my hair but being curly is a fun journey even though there's ups & downs and sometimes it gets hard, at the end of the day you can look back & know that you overcame the challenges that come with natural hair :) And if you decided to transition back to curly, it's a pain in the derriere, trust me i've been there. xo

If you're keen to try a few products before forking out for a full sized one, try pm'ing kathymac or check out the swap board. I spoke to her awhile ago about sending samples over here and although she hadn't done it before was willing to try it. With the package size she could send you could get a decent collection of samples and if i remember correctly it was a decent price. She use to have a list of what products she had and what sample sizes they came in, i think on the swap board.

HTH

ps alannah..that sucks about the one-c :( hope ur still enjoying your self made conditioner. I was reading the long hair community discussion boards and come across snowy's moisture treatment (SMT anywho not sure if i've written it right) which is basically, honey, aloe gel and conditioner but people swear by it. I'm thinking i'll give it a go soon.

Despite that this thread is 3 years old, Im also desperately searching for anywhere that sells or ships devacurl to WA! Maybe someone has gained new info over the past 3 years haha?
I watched a woman with the most beautiful curls show her process of styling her hair and looked at my fizz filled curls and was like I MUST HAVE THIS PRODUCT

Starmie 06-24-2013 12:14 PM

I think strawberrynet sell it now, don't know what prices are like but at least they have free shipping which is always a bonus.

Perth Curlies: Devacurl, Other Curly Products & Curly Cuts
 
Perth Curlies--let's stick together!

I'm about a year late to this thread, but just thought I would share my findings (hours worth of research, let's be honest) on finding curly cuts and curly hair products in Perth (Western Australia).

I have only lived in Perth 6 months and am from the U.S., so you can imagine my frustration at the lack of products and stylists available to those of us with wavy/curly hair here in Perth.

Devacurl Products:

Strawberrynet sells the basic Devacurl products (the Deva 3-Step) and some limited styling products. They provide free shipping oftentimes as well.

However, Strawberrynet does not sell all Devacurl styling products and none of the tools (the microfiber towel, clips, diffuser, etc.)

Devacurl + Tons of Other Curly Hair Products:

Yes, I'm posting on CurlTalk, but NaturallyCurly's "CurlMart" will ship to Australia and the CurlMart stocks a variety of products.

Downside? Shipping costs about as much as the products themselves.

Jessicurl also ships to Australia, but again you're looking at a hefty shipping fee.

Curly Cuts?

I have had NO luck finding someone who is trained to cut curly or wavy hair in Perth. I am going to make an appointment to try Toni & Guy in Subiaco in the next couple of weeks. This salon was recommended to me by a friend who has wavy, thick hair that she can scrunch curl. She said the stylist scrunch curls her hair as well.

I will post an update once I visit this salon.

[B][U]Please provide your feedback and updates!

If you find a curly trained stylist in Perth or a place that ships curly hair products to Perth for less (better yet, an actual physical retailer) please let me know! I'm interested in any feedback or updates!

If you like Kinky Curly stuff you can get that from iherb, postage is really cheap.

Deva (Hair Care) Products at Cosmetics Now US

I hope this helps. :)

Newbie
 
I've only just discovered Deva products today and i want to get them ASAP.

i have been researching a number of various website and found that Strawberry Net and Cosmetics Now ship for free. The prices on Cosmetics Now are so much better than I expected. However these two websites only stock the hair care products and i really want the tools so that i can have the most wonderful curly hair EVER!!!!

After another bout of searching i found that Nordstrom sells the towels, diffuser and clips. With the 3 step cleanse (12oz each), diffuser and clips it will be $139.50 plus $10.00 for shipping to Australia from the US. The more you purchase the cheaper the shipping gets, so im going to purchase my first round of products and tools off Nordstrom and then I'll turn to Cosmetics Now when i need a refill. hope this helps.
