Boots Curl Cream has been discontinued - need ideas

They don't sell either of the white Boots creams anymore. The one that I used, they replaced with a straightening cream in identical packaging - I bought some by accident and used for a while, and couldn't work out why my hair was acting so strangely until I noticed the word straightening on the tube!

I went into my local very small Boots store today and they still had the curling cream, only a couple of tubs but that's all they usually have.

I also had a look at the ingredients for the Toni & Guy Soft Curl Cream and Twist It Curl Balm - neither appear to contain silicones but I'm not sure whether that qualifies them as CG. I got some of the Twist It Curl Balm to try, quite expensive at 4.99 but I had lots of Boots points so got it for free.

Now I just need to find time to experiment with the products that I keep buying, too risky on a work day as I need to look presentable!

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I have fortunately found a good combination. I am using Pantene curl cream, with Pantene curl mousse on top and Boots purple gel over that. I can get good second day hair with it. Hopefully the Boots curl cream will return though.
i sell the white boots but only in the US. there were 2 formulas one with cones and one without. i have the one without, i still have a bunch left tho sales are picking up now,
email me banjolady.susan@verizon.net for details

2b/3a.
I think Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer is quite similar. I use it sometimes and get rave reviews. I pretend it doesn't have silicones in it, though. I didn't every check on the silicone because I didn't want to have to stop using it, but is it a bad one?

Be Curly is nothing like the Boots cream IMO. It's also about 10 times the price.

Still mourning the pink Boots
Funny enough I wanted to add it to my rotation in Jan but makes no sense now - last thing I need is to get hooked then cant find the products then Imma go nuts - you know ...wanting to buy whole shelves and pallets and stuff hehehehe good luck ladies.
3B/C ; Suave Coconut Co-wash/LA Looks Gel or KCCC w/ KCKT (during the cooler months); I use Coconut &/or EVOO (Olive Oil) for Deep Conditioning.
Is Boots pink curl creme even CG? It's got a load of alcohol in it which is a no-no to CG... otherwise I'd buy it by the bucket load.
Loving my wavy 2a hair!!

Argh, I went to 5 different Boots stores in my area and NONE had it in stock! I just know there's some greedy women buying it by the bucket load... Now I have NOTHING to put on my hair tomorrow - straightening it is

But then again, too few to mention...

After grieving i have decided to prepare early ad choose what product to buy when i run out of boots sniff sniff. I was thinking to use the garnier fructis leave in under a gel, but i will need a low poo for the A-cone.
What are you ladies thinking of doing?
well I have previously bought this stuff:

I cant remember the ingredients or the results, but i remember it being similar to boots in consistency. Ill probably have a try of that.

I have tried that, it's very light so it was good for summer, not ever tried it in winter though. I have to use alot because I have quite thick hair so I used 1 big tube per week! plus it's a little over my budget at 4.99 for a large tube. Hopefully I can try all CG creams out through christmas and then there's summer to think about :@ But fortunately I have worked out I have enough of Boots until the christmas break (lucky!) then no-one except family will see me so I will experiment with products then.

I went to boots today with a plan to buy as many jars of this stuff as i could carry and shock horror... they'd sold out

Forced to re-think i had a good look at some other brands and theres quite a few I've never seen before (James Brown, tommyguns..)! I ended up picking up Mark Hills curl spray, it has silk protiens in (which i think are in CK) so thought id give it a go, i'll let you know!
fine 3b curls and spirals - first goal BSL!!

HG's - Body Shop Honey shampoo & conditioner and Shea Moisture leave-in condish which gives me lovely frizz-free bouncy curls. My PJ is calling me to experiment with gels again... argh!
i looked at the sorbie site--the long curly hair cream looks interesting--probably cant get that here in US--tho we 've got enough products here already i've used their sliquid gel which was good...
