I can't tell you where (although I hear it's in every drugstore over there!), but can you bring back a bunch of them and sell them to us??

Buy me a few tubs? I'll gladly pay you. I'm desperate for some more since my tub is almost gone! Please?

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

Just look for a Boots The Chemist. It's a pharmacy chain, similar to Walgreen's, RiteAid, or CVS. They're everywhere.

I've been in the Boots store but could not find it. Is it a curl cream in a tube? Today is a bank holiday so I guess I will have to wait until Tuesday to try again.

It's pink goo in a clear plastic tub. It's in the hair gel/styling section.



If you can't see it, ask a shop assistant if they sell Boots Essentials Curl Creme. They usually have it in smaller stores, but it may be worth having a look in one of the larger ones.

(to be honest, I don't understand the hype around this product! My hair is the same with or without it!)

yes, all the above is true! But, just to save you any hassle, you can only get this in Boots. It's an own-brand product, and so only they will sell it.

From experience, it tends to be in the styling product section, often accompanied by their other own-brand products (purple and clear gels; sprays etc.).

Hope you find it!

It is a Boots brand product: the current pot looks a bit different from the one in the photo, but it's the same colour. Beware though - most larger Boots will stock it, but smaller ones may not. There's one on every corner in London, though (nearly as bad as Starbucks and Tesco), so you'll find one that stocks it eventually.

We are like drug addicts - but in a good way.

On another note - I hate when a thread is not 'finished'. I wonder if she found any. Inquiring minds want to know.

Yes, I did get it but I could only get one jar due to my weight allowance. I'll try it once I get home.
