I usually use the Boots Naked range but they are being discontinued. I'm not too worried about finding another shampoo and conditioner that fit with the method, but I'm a bit anxious about other products.

I use the Umberto Gianni gel which I'm really happy with. But I'd usually put some Naked curl cream in as well when my hair is soaking wet so I think I need a replacement for that. I also use the Naked leave in conditioner to take any puffiness out of my hair once it's dry.

So does anyone have any recommendation for silicone and sulphate etc free products which could do the job?

Thank you!

Boots Curl Creme about £2 a tub.
Body Shop Rainforest shampoo.

We use lidl Cien everyday conditioner on curly girl dds. Very cheap and works well.

Tresemme naturals conditioner is great and can be very cheap as often half price.

I'm distraught at Naked being discontinued. I'm nearly out of the DC's Naked Curl Taming Cream - it's been by far the best and most affordable silicone free curl product I've found.

Boots are now stocking a new ORS range "Curls Unleashed" and I've got the Hair Milk to try on the DC's mixed race corkscrews wannabe dreadlocks

We like Treseme Naturals Conditioner here too.

Thanks all.

I've used the treseme conditioner in the past and really liked it. I wonder if I could use it as a finishing cream once my hair is dry.

Interested to see what that new boots range will be like.

Has anyone tried any of the conditioners and curl cremes/jellies for Afro-Caribbean hair that are available in Boots? Are they any good?

I've previously used an anti-shrinkage cream on the dd's mixed race hair, but it has a very funny slippery texture and doesn't really work for us - Dark & Lovely Eau Naturael

The green ORS Olive Oil cream is quite good.

there are some reviews of the ORS Curls Unleashed range on Amazon. My local Boots has started to stock the range

Naked products are now sold in 99p World so worth stocking up now

LetMeDriveTheBus Sun 16-Aug-15 20:46:57

Thanks again everyone. I've ordered some ORS cream on amazon so will see how I get on with that.

It's annoying about the Naked range as I've never been so happy with my curls. Hope I can find something that suits me as well.

You can buy the Naked curl cream online at Poundland. Postage is £3 so you might want to stock up.

Faith in Nature shampoo and conditioner and Boots pink curl cream or Umberto Gianni scrunching gel. I think the Naked range has just had a rebrand. I noticed a new range in Boots the other day that looked v similar but different name.

I've got the Boots curl cream but can't seem to find the right amount to use. Too little does nothing and too much makes my hair crispy which I hate.

I'm gutted that I can't get the Naked curl cream any more. can anyone link to Poundland where they stock it? I can't find it on the website.

Sansarya Mon 17-Aug-15 07:37:52

Sorry, it was Poundshop not Poundland and I've just had a look and it's now out of stock sad

kazzawazzawo0 Mon 17-Aug-15 13:09:18

Oh no! Anyone found it anywhere else?

My dcs are mixed race and we follow the curly girl method. We have had success with naked conditioner, tresemme naturals and more recently Lidl Cien everyday conditioner that only costs around 70p a bottle!

Sansarya Tue 18-Aug-15 21:33:33

Ok I give up on Boots pink curl cream. Just doesn't do anything for my hair. Oh well, at least it was only £2!

I go to a hairdresser that specialises in curly hair. He recommends the Devacurl products that are available on Amazon. He also recommended Bodyshop Rainforest range and the pink Umberto Gianni gel. I've also been washing just using conditioner which gives good results too. Finally, dry your hair with paper towels not normal towels, reduces the frizz!
