Looking for Curlies from Belgium!

Hi fellow Belgian Curlies!

I would be so happy to get to "know" other Belgian Curlies on this website and to know their routines and experiences and so on.
Maybe we could form a little group, perhaps even with a facebookpage?

First of all, introduce yourselves, your product use, routine, curl pattern, ...
I'll start:

Hi Curlies!
My name is Nele, I'm living in Flanders (near Mechelen ) and so my native language is Dutch/Flemish.
I'm a 21 year old (22 in April) Translation student Dutch-French-Spanish.

I've started to embrace my natural curls like... 10 days ago and before I straightened it a lot...

My curl pattern: probably 2b now, but with potential to get it to 2c and maybe even 3a when it's healthier (I would love to become somewhere between 2c and 3a).

I'm not yet CG, but consider myself modified CG right now (I already changed my routine to better products and especially less shampoo, but I've still got a lot of work to do). Oh... and I should also mention that my hair gets coloured every 6-8 weeks.

- shampoo (which I'm avoiding more and more): Professional Wella shampoo for coloured hair, bought at a hair dressers shop in Mechelen ==> contains sulfates and 1 silicon (dimethicone) and still other things I don't know
- conditioner: Professional Wella conditioner for coloured hair, bought in the same shop ==> contains dimethicone and other things I don't know
- when I go for a swim I change the shampoo and conditioner for Wella shampoo that is designed to protect my hair for chlorine
- oil: Professional Wella enrich elixir ==> I absolutely love this stuff, although I'm not really really fond of their conditioners and shampoos, but I looove the oil
- mousse: Tigi Bed Head foxy curls (hair dressers shop) or Wella Pro Max Hold mousse (bought at Wibra )

I do like plopping and I've never tried to diffuse, so I will try that later.

I would like to get to know better products and where to get them (and especially if they are CGfriendly products). The only thing from my products I don't want to give up is the oil.... since it's great... and battling the frizzzzz...

So: what is your routine/product use? And where do you get your products?

Belgie! duffel( dus naast mechelen ) altijd welkom met vragen!
3a 3b , medium-high porosity , low-medium density , fine-medium width , medium length. My hair LOVES protein, HATES leave in conditioners etc. It get's wavy/flat easily if I use a conditioner that's too strong.
I just moved to Belgium about 2 months ago from U.S. I live in Jurbise and I am looking for a stylist to cut my hair that has curly hair experience. I am willing to drive a good distance if the stylist is good. I have had one to many bad cuts and I am really afraid to just try someone that has not been recommended. I use Diva Curl products and I would love to find someone that was trained in the diva cut. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
I don't think we have Deva-cut-trained stylists in Belgium, if you however find one... do let us know, I'm always interested in a Deva cut if it's within Belgium
2c: fine texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity, normal-high density
CG since March 8th 2013
Low Poo: Rainforest Radiance shampoo
Conditioner: Yes to Cucumbers
Styler: BRHG, Garnier Fructis Gel
PT: Gliss Kur Repair & Volume

Did not expect to see this topic here! From Belgium as well, Antwerp! I'm yet to find a good hair salon really, they all seem to butcher my hair.

As far as products, I have kept it on a hold for now and just been using a L'Orťal mousse and some Argan oil to hydrate. I was using the Joico products though but they discontinued it

Send them an email again, hoping they will respond because I have no clue at all what to use from them now...

But ehm, Tigi at Wibra? Whut? I wish the Wibra in my neighbourhood was that awesome lol.
Antwerpen hier.

Bij kapper Atelier Geraud in de Otto Veniusstraat werkt een dame die mijn krullen heel erg goed knipt: Bettina.

Voor het eerst in mijn leven niet meer bang om naar de kapper te gaan.

Heeft iemand interesse om hair cleansing cream van jessicurl tegen een schappelijke prijs over te nemen?
