CG Products in UK (updatable list)
 
Hi UK Curlies - I know we have two separate threads on this already, but it'd be nice to have a single thread to direct people to. I've made a quick list of things I know of off the top of my head and gone through the current threads and added those I know to still be CG. If anyone wants to add things, let me know - particularly in the comments area, and under DT and PT. I've left these as categories, but if you all would prefer to know which ones have protein/glycerin/etc. in them, let me know and I can edit accordingly.

ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK THE INGREDIENTS

CG Products available in the UK

websites: store.britishcurlies.co.uk (Curl Junkie, Crown Pride, Miss Jessies, Darcy’s Botanicals, Kinky Curly); Curl Mart ships internationally as do Curl Junkie and Jessicurl.

Hi- I don't think most Sainsbury's own brand conditioners are CG safe. Most of them contain cones. I also know that Superdrug have stopped selling most of their cheap conditioners that were cone free (the ones that came in 500ml bottles).

My advice would be to check the bottles thoroughly as they are constantly being reformulated.

oddityofwings 03-22-2010 06:46 AM

Absolutely, always check the formulations. I was going off one of the other threads here which said basically most of the own-brand supermarket brands were CG.

Bump for anyone looking for this.

Check out the Body Shop Website! Rainforest line!

I've looked at a lot of the supermarket own conditioners. I know at Sainsbury's the only cone free one is the apple - same with Morrisons.

Hi Oddityofwings,

Boots Curl Creme (“Pink Boots”),Naked curl creams, James Brown Serum. How much would it all sum up to?

Thanks Wendy

I'm so fed up with trying to find good products in UK!! Plus I think my hair likes some cones (if that's possible?!)

does anyone know of good products that are not 100% CG but not really bad?

THANK YOU!!
 
This list is super helpful. I was getting mildly frustrated with the lack of options in Glasgow and spent FAR too long staring at bottles in Whole Foods while my boyfriend impatiently ate free samples.

THANK YOU!

Also I'm looking to try a light protein treatment on my hair and see how it takes. Someone recommended Ion Effective Care Treatment but I can't find it in Scotland/UK!!

Anyone know if any alternatives?
