Had success using restivoil shampoo. No lather at all. But I really like it.

I used to use tigi curlesque curl cream (love it) but can't seem to find it here in Italy. I tried to buy some from the uk but customs wouldn't let me have it!! I need to find a similar alternative here. Any ideas girls???

I just moved from Sicily about five years ago.

It is possible
I have been in Italy for 2 out of 12 days and I must say that I stumbled upon some natural products at affordable prices such as Argan Oil Volume and Shine Spray and Maschera di Ricostruzione (Reconstruction Mask). I bought both of this at OVS ( to find the nearest store. I went to the one between Fountana di Trevi and the Spanish Steps. If you go on the Sightseeing Store get off at the Fountana di Trevi.

Any problems email me

Hope this helps

Maybe an old thread...
But I just made an account. >.>

Restiv'oil is a great oil-shampoo, as they describe it. I use it sometimes when my scalp goes crazy and thinks it can scale itself like a fish, usually out of stress and so on. Does wonders to my hair, it's a bit pricey in my opinion and the ingredient list leaves me a bit puzzled. It has a lot of PEGs, like every oil shampoo does and I think it might end up drying up the hair unless you alternate its use with something else like I usually do.

I like the Garnier Ultra Dolce line, as conditioner I use Garnier Ultra Dolce al Mango e Fiori di Tiaré. Unexpensive, no SLS, no cones, no paraben, lots of nice oils in it. I just started the CG method a few days ago, but I have some L'Oreal sulfate-free shampoo left from when I went to the States if I need it so I have no idea about sls-free shampoos in Italy yet.
Another thing, the Hennč e Aceto di Mora line from Garnier Ultra Dolce is amazing, I have dark brown hair and the henna in it gave me GREAT reddish highlights when I used it. Now I use henna+indigo as a hair dye so I don't need it, but if any of you Italians want a subtle highlight go for that and stick with it!

I like Splend'Or also, it's cheap so don't expect wonders from it, but I love the smell and it's a good product in general. I'll be back when I test more, hair products are an obsession for me.

Here!! Here!!
I'm from Italy too and...really, desperate.
Tried all the products they sell here (in a reasonable price range) and nothing works for my curls. Nothing.
I think i might have to order something from abroad...anyway, welcome to Italy!!

I thought one would fine local Italian brands that would be leaning towards "natural". Garnier isn't so bad for a cheap supermarket brand.

iHerb and Vitacost have good selections of CG-safe products with low shipping cost to Europe. And if all else fail, you can make your own concoction, if you know what your hair likes and needs. Yes, it does require some investment upfront, but the expense per use would be much cheaper. Aroma-Zone (French webshop) sells amazing arrays of ingredients, tools and packagings with cheap price and shipping cost, and professional looking packaging.
