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 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...

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!

co-wash: MOP hydrating con. / CURLS coconut sublime con.
leave-in: garnier fructis con. with avocado & olive oil

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
