Default James Brown? UK only, perhaps??!

Hey all!

Anyone tried anything by him? Stumbled across some in Boots - it's quite pricey (6-10) - but seems, to my inexpert eyes, free of all the usual nasties. Indeed, it looks pretty fab-tastic.

I've just the deep conditioner - and I like! Worth a look if you're desperately hunting Jessicurl/Deva et al., but can't afford shipping (UK or from further afield).

Anyway, would love a second opinion!

Hi

I've seen his products advertised (I'm in the UK) but haven't tried any. He's big friends with Kate Moss apparently! I'm always on the lookout for a good intensive conditioner so I might give it a try. Do you use it as a treatment or to 'wash' your hair with?

Well, the deep condish is pretty rich - so I've been using it as my 2nd conditioner, after a quick 'wash' with something lighter, like Co-op/Boots own brands.

There is a lighter conditioner that you could try tho!

I saw this advertised on boots website but have yet to see it.
Is it CG? The web information about the serum says he uses no silicones, so that could be promising!

Any more information?

...actually I'll try to look this weekend and post anything I find

James Brown?? Are we talking about the hardest-working man in show business?? Mr. Please, Please, Please??? The Godfather of Soul himself???? He moved on last year to meet the great Soul Man in the Sky and is singing with the heavenly soul choir -- is he also marketing a line of curly hair products from beyond the grave???

I love James Brown and I'll buy whatever he's selling. He should call it, I Got You, I Feel Good!

Well, we could pretend that it's MR Hot Pants! ;o)

Works fine on my browser (Firefox), but it is pretty Java intensive. Doesn't list ingredients anyways...

So far, so good - I'm liking the conditioners. )

do you think the serum could be used in place of gel?
