We used to use herbal essences but since the the change of formula it's only good for a washing/rinsing conditioner

What do other people use?

I use the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance leave in conditioner spray as a detangler on dd's hair. Smells nice too

Thanks - I thought we had curly girl hair sorted & then they go & change the formula on us hmm

We have been curly girling for ages but when the formula changed we were stuck; caring for mixed race hair is so complex

I'm rotating Tresemme luxurious Moisture conditioner (the white bottle), Aussie Miracle Moist conditioner and Aveeno Nourish and shine (ordered from Amazon). Was gutted about Herbal Essences, was my favourite. HTH

Do you do CurlyGirl Maygirl?

It has really helped DD; but finding a new conditioner is a nightmare!!

We have some bottles of old herbal essences that we are eking out; I wonder if anyone has supplies of old formula condition we can buy

How did you find out it had changed?

The thing is crazynana, nothing else we have tried has been as good as herbal essences

I'm so grateful for you, btw as we wouldn't have know it was different formula grin

Mixed chicks is a lovely range but expensive. She's butter us also good and cheap.

nkf Tue 13-Mar-12 07:42:05

Sorry. Shea butter.

crazynanna Tue 13-Mar-12 07:42:09

You're welcome smile

My adult dd is getting a bit of an expert now with her's only taken her 26 years!

I will ask her suggestions when I next speak to her and report back

If you're feeling very rich, aveda be curly us also nice. Lasts no time at all.

crazynanna Tue 13-Mar-12 07:44:40

Do you know this 'hairtype' scale thingy? 3b...4a....4c etc?

If so,what type is your dd so as I can ask my she says she can visualise someone's hair by knowing their hairtype.

crazynanna Tue 13-Mar-12 07:45:17

Aveda Be Curly is apparently the best thing my dd has tried...but pricy!

KatyMac Tue 13-Mar-12 07:49:42

No I don't know the hairtype thingie - which site is that on?

crazynanna Tue 13-Mar-12 08:01:57

I think it's this one

and here

I'm glad I'm not alone dealing with the joys of mixed race hair grin

I've just invested in some Kinky Curly products (sorry can't link from the phone) and the leave-in conditioner and hair custard (?!) is really nice. A bit pricey but all natural products and don't need to use much. curl types is one site for categorising the curls. DD is a mixture of 3C and 4A and has lots and lots of it confused

bdaonion Tue 13-Mar-12 08:15:13

Link did not work

bdaonion Tue 13-Mar-12 08:17:40

Damn iPhone!!! Try this

bdaonion Tue 13-Mar-12 08:18:45

After all that I crossed posts with crazynanna

I think it's mixed up maybe some 3c & 4a but it's difficult to tell really
