The cream styler I use is discontinued but I bought 5 bottles of it when they were 1 each. The gel might be available: Wella Back to Basics Green Tea Gel. I got it from Sallys so its a possibility.

And I dont think the sulfate shampoo I use is - Original Source is a UK brand I think.

Its really hard for the UK curlies to find good products, and its ironic they're not available in the US!

Oh and i used to use/sometimes still use Umberto Gianini Curl friends scrunching jelly. I think thats available in the US but under a slightly different name (its pink in a see through bottle.) It has alcohol denat. but does give great hold and spirals.
Thanks for all the info!

JF in the usa at least I think that green tea gel has been discontinued. They still have a thickening formula but I had to hunt down the green tea gel itself at a place that still had some of it and a disc. conditioner.

I saw the Tangerine and bergemont shampoo on ebay, someone has it here in the usa.

Not that I was looking at what you use on your hair or anything

Now that pure nuff I haven't found here at all.

Thanks everyone

The Pure Nuff Stuff is an independent run online store, by three women in England. I really don't think they personally sell their products IN America but you can order from their site I'm sure:

http://www.purenuffstuff.co.uk

I've contacted them a few times and they're very sweet and polite, so I'm sure if you asked about shipping costs they wouldn't mind!

And I think the Green Tea gel has been discontinued here. I snapped up 4 bottles of it in Sallys when it was 3, so I'm hoping something new will come out before mine finishes!

Jenny~I love the length of your hair, the long ringlets are beautiful. You don't have any layers? I'm trying to figure out whether my hair would look less poofy if I let all the layers grow out. Like, maybe it would get weighed down? Anyway, however you have it cut, your hair looks simply marvelous

Thanks Celebration I technically do not have layers cut into my hair BUT my hair does not sit at all one length. I've had it cut, when wet and straight, all at the same length for years. Now, it may sit all the same length when wet and straight, but when it curls it sits at different lengths. If you think about it, the underneath layer of hair sits a lot lower down my head and therefore is a lot shorter than the top layer. So, being curly, it springs up a lot more. For this reason, I have an 'undercut' unintentionally. It does make my hair look less full and whilst all the top layer looks the same length, underneath I have much shorter ringlets.

I am trying to reverse this, and gradually let the bottom layer grow longer than the top layer so I CAN get layers but it'll take a while.

So I cant say that 'all the same length' will work for everyone - a lot of people get 'triangle head' but as my hairs fine it sits flatter.

HTH!

Ah yes. Triangle head. I've heard much about it!
Thanks for the explanation. Since my hair is most definitely NOT fine (quite the opposite=wiry) I suppose mine would lay a lot differently than yours Hmmmph.

Thanks Jenny!!!!
