I had no idea you're living in the UK! We experience a similar thing here in the Netherlands. I simply can't get why there are so few natural products and how on earth it is possible that everyone seems to be able to advertise their products as natural. I feel the same way about food. Products and brands claiming that they don't contain artificial preservatives/additives, you name it. Why not go back to the nature of things? That's how I feel.

Is it easy to get CG products in the UK? I checked out the Curly Emporium and would love to order there but I've read on this forum that shipping to the Netherlands is 12 pounds, which is even more than the product I want!

What is the whole living natural scene like in the UK? People assume that Europe is all about living healthy and natural, but I find this is not true for the Netherlands.

I'm from the Netherlands as well and I totally agree with Lauraimes! It really is a shame that everybody can state that their products (cosmetics ánd food!) are natural while they stuff it with chemicals!

It's not too bad here for CG products, I think we have it easier than you. Between the Curly Emporium and various online stores (eg. Pak Cosmetics) aimed at the ethnic market, eBay and Amazon I can get a good range. With the Curly Emporium I just spend £50 at a time to get free posting, but not too often!! Obviously I combine that with cheap high street products to save money, I certainly cannot afford to do it all from the curly brands.

If I can help you out with mailing anything from the UK let me know, it would be cheaper without full tracking/ to be signed for if you are comfortable with that. I warn you that I may well not be fast or efficient, I have health problems so don't always get out and about. I do purchase plenty online so always have a good supply of packaging materials so no cost there!!

Firefox, what an extremely kind offer! I really appreciate it I'm on the app right now and about to go to sleep (I'm in bed as we speak) but I'll send you a PM tomorrow! Sleep well

Update: I think I discovered why my ends were dry! It was the BRHG. Glad I used a sample first instead of just buying it.

Have you tried to use a LI under the BRHG? Or a tiny bit of CCCCL (if you're still using this), just on the ends, might work as well...

No, I don't have a LI (though I've been experimenting with using one of my ROs that I can't use as a RO) and I sold CCCL just a few days ago because it really didn't work for me. Also, I don't have the sample any more since I used it all
