What clumps like OneC, but is available in the EU?

Hey all,
I'm starting to run low on my One Condition. Darcy's Pumpkin Seed smells lovely and does great for moisture and slip, but it does not give me straight-outta-the-shower clumps the way OneC does. I read up on the boards' favorite alternatives, and went looking for Tresemme & GFTN today at the drugstore. Surprise - one isn't sold here and the other has cones...

First off, does anyone know what is in the OneC that could be giving me clumps that Darcy's doesn't have? (Is it as simple as glycerin?) If I knew, I could look for something else that has it. Other things that clump my hair well are KCCC and JCRR, if that helps.

Second, can anyone recommend a substitute for this side of the Atlantic? I'm putting in an order with Curly Emporium soon, so while I prefer cheaper stuff, I could also order something there.

Thanks!

Not from the UK buuuut, I've heard Herbal Essences "TotallyTwisted" (lavender or wild orchid varieties) is a doppelgänger. The reason for such a comparison would be the similarities in the first 5 ingredients (known to be the most important/potent). It has a mild cone (did not build up quickly in my own hair), but it is a great product and it smells delish worth a shot!

Thanks for the suggestion! Unfortunately, it's not sold in Germany. If no one has closer suggestions, I may give in and order from amazon.co.uk.

Can't really help you with product recommends unfortunately BUT, just so you know, if you ever can't find something on the Curly Emporium, Beauty by Zara has a lot of products that aren't available on CE.

I'm from the UK, so normally I order half my stuff from the CE and the other half from Beauty by Zara. So yeah, for future reference, if you ever can't find something on CE and want to know of another good site for an EU curly:

There's a thread somewhere on this that the Yes to Carrots conditioner has very similar ingredients to the One Condition. I personally use Yes to Blueberries and love it. Not sure if you can get it there?

Hey all, thanks for the helpful suggestions. I haven't found a cheap, locally available, comparable conditioner yet, but I did just find 1/4 of a big pump bottle of OneC lying around the house. I emptied it into a smaller bottle - the day is saved for another little while! I also found a super-cheap protein conditioner and some conditioner samples in the local organic-products stores and finally tried the Super Soaker method, too. Oh yeah and I found myself a Denman! That is going to save me sooo much product! With all those factors, my clumps are doing OK again!

Hey Frankceska,

if ud ever like to try the Yes to carrots (also on my "need to try it" list) condi, go to the website of ecco verde, its located in Germany and they have it and most of the other stuff from the "Yes to" line.
