Travelling to Europe in June and looking for product advice
 
Hi curlies,
I am travelling to Europe (Slovenia and surrounds) from Australia in June and need some advice on products. Apparently you can only take liquid products on planes if they are less than 100mL in volume. That will never last me 3 weeks!
I was thinking of taking small supplies of my current products and then buying replacements once I get there. Any suggestions? Are Deva products available there, because they certainly aren't here!

Hi RedDelicious - the 100ml limit only applies to products in hand luggage. You can still pack larger sizes in hold luggage. HTH!

Hi I am from Europe (Germany). I would check if there is a "DM" market anywhere. It is kinda like a Walgreens.

I recommend:

ALVERDE Birke-Salbei Conditioner as co-wash
and
BALEA Aprikose Conditioner als Conditioner or leave in.

Have fun in Europe!

Oh and basically in Europe, the cheap stuff is without cones, the more expensive, the worse the ingredients...

What's DM stand for? Do they have an online shop?

You can get Tresemme naturals (good shampoo & conditioner) anywhere in UK & Ireland ... Just check out the chemist called Boots. There's 2 in heathrow now I think

Have fun!

I live in Budapest, Hungary, and we have DM (Rossmann too) over here too. It stands for Drogerie Markt by the way, and they do not have an online shop, but you can find them at pretty much every mall, etc. The Alverde & Balea stuff is pretty great, yes. Those are DM's own brands. It's all organic, as far as I know. As for styling products and such, I personally haven't had ANY luck yet ( I order my LA Looks Gels from amazon.co.uk marketplace), and I've tried basically every gel they have over here. IDK. But I agree with GermanCurls, the expensive stuff is always full of cones, and usually the cheap ones are free of them!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask, as I know for a fact Hungary gets pretty much the same beauty/hair products as Germany, Austria, etc. :) Sometimes I wish I lived in the UK though, they have Boots and Superdrug and other great stores, and it's much easier to get hold of REAL good, curly-friendly organic products there. :( Have a great trip! :thumbup:

In Budapest for the semester - looking for curl products!
 
To the people from Budapest:

Are the products you mentioned (ALVERDE and Balea) good for corkscrew curls that need a lot of moisture? I'm looking into Devacurl right now for my hair (haven't tried it yet), but I am also considering alternatives. Do you think those DM brands will give my hair enough moisture? Are they made for curly hair? Thanks for your help,

Damaris

Balea also has a curly hair line, but I personnaly don't like it very much (imo it smells bad). I prefer the oil repair line - it gives my hair the moisture it needs if i let it sit for 2-3 minutes while doing my other stuff in the shower and is great for detangling.
I've been using it for 3 weeks now, and it is definitely a keeper *yaay*
but since balea stuff is very cheap you can buy two or three different products and try which one you like best,and give away the others or keep them for DCs ;)

I'm from Serbia and I have also been having a hard time finding a good styling product and recently I bought from DM the Alverde gel, because it's organic it doesn't dry out your hair and it doesn't make it crunchy insted you get really nice definition, I'm loving it so far.. Also if your looking for good deep conditioners I recomend swiss'o'par (I'm not sure if i wrote it right) they have an argan oil mask and honey mask, and also Schwartzkopf Gliss oil nutritive mask.. :)

KikiLaBouche 01-21-2015 03:11 PM

Yeah as mentioned, Swiss'o'Par is good, it also has a gel which I think is CG (I haven't got round to using it yet as I have around 3-4 tubs of other gels to go through!). Also the Garnier Naturals range is available in Germany (not Switzerland yet unfortunately :'( ) only the conditioners are cone-free but they work so well on my hair!

I've found if difficult to find styling products, I usually bring a huge supply back from the UK with me as the curl cream is to die for! And as said before, cheaper products tend to be CG...unless you're in Switzerland where it's cheaper to go to Germany and buy products there! :laughing6:

ninaZeraj1 01-26-2015 11:51 AM

I also recomend this hair line it's called Insight HOME // Insight , and they have a special line for dry hair and also for damaged hair. I think they are from Italy, and you can't find their products in drugstores, but I think you can find them in shops that sell products for hair-dressers... :) They don't look appealing but they are really good, and cheap...
