Default HELP! UK Products

Hey I live in England and I was wondering what products are the best ones we can buy here, (like conditioners, creams, gels)? And also, are we allowed to use silcones at all if we're on the CG routine? Cuz I can't find any conditioners without them.
Please help me!

P.S I've been CG for a couple of weeks now.

Yup, no silicones if you're full-CG. There are a few threads around here about UK products, but they're definitely hard to find. This one was bumped a few days ago in the going shampoo-less section:

no poo conditioners in the UK

There are quote a few conditioners available that meet the requirements. Original Source and Boots own make are two I have used and Johnstons Pink Baby Conditioner also is cone free. On the styling front again Boots own make Curl Creme is a fav on this site and again it is cone free. Umberto Giovanni pink scrunching jelly is another one and I have heard that the Body shop Cottonseed Cream is also CG. If you have a health food shop near you then you might try using Aloe Gel a lot of curlys on this site use it although I don't think it provides a lot of hold. Another tip is to look at peoples signatures at the end of their message and see what they are using.

IIRC, Aubrey Organics is available in the UK, and many of their conditioners are cone free.

I love the Pink Boots Curling Cream.
