Default Travelling to Australia & NZ - what products to use?

Hi

I'll be Travelling to Australia & NZ on a fee months & was wondering if the Aussie curlies could recommend some good but cheap CG products to use?

Do they have Tresemme naturals down there?

Thanks

I hope you enjoy your visit I would live to know exactly are you going.

Our priceline stores carry quite a large range of good quality products, and while you're in New Zealand you might be able to find some Manuka honey products for your curls, I haven't tried any myself but it seems to be used for almost everything!

I really hope you enjoy your trip here. I'm afraid I can't help you with gels as I don't use any, but just remember not to bring the liquids in your carry on..I've made that mistake before and have had things confiscated

For my trip I ended up takin my Eco styler which worked out well til I ran out.

So I went to the shop & bought some v05 mega hold... The only gel in the supermkt w/out alcohol denat.

My hair is still recovering now I'm back. Hold was ok at first but after a while my hair became really frizzy & dry with lil hold. I think I'll be chucking out that gel.

Ps Aust & NZ both sell tresemme natural in their drugstores ... Very easy. I took a big bottle with me but I could've easily bought it there. You can never be too careful tho.

Priceline or priceattack in Aust have a huge range of haircare include a very small section for Afro/mixed hair
