I'm getting quite panicky - it's one of my favourite products for my dry, badly-behaved curls. I've been to 3 branches of Boots in the last 2 weeks and none of them had it in stock. It's not available on the website either.

They can't be discontinuing it.................... can they???? Anyone know more about this????? sad <hopeful>

QuenelleOJersey2012 Tue 31-Jul-12 11:43:15

Oh no! It's out of stock in my local branch as well. They can't disco it, I had to buy the John Frieda one last week and, apart from being 4 times the price, it's rubbish.

I'm going to email their HQ now.

Hate when things get discontinued. sad
Have you tried this?

QuenelleOJersey2012 Tue 31-Jul-12 11:46:39

It's out of stock online too. I've emailed them.

<wrings hands nervously>

I have FannyFifer and didn't like it - wasn't moisturising enough for my hair sad The Boots curl cream is just so damn good and for £1.30 a go.......! I know it doesn't work for everyone but I will be gutted if they've removed it

I use that umberto stuff- it's good but it does give you 'crispy' curls.

Lottapianos Tue 31-Jul-12 11:47:27

Good thinking Quenelle - could you let us know if you get a reply? smile

The boots organix morrocan oil is good for curls, has silicons in though I think.

Lottapianos Tue 31-Jul-12 11:56:53

I'm a silicone free zone talkingnonsense! smile It's a bugger finding products that actually work and don't cost a flaming fortune. Hopefully they're just cooking up a new massive vat of pink CC goodness <crosses everything>

QuenelleOJersey2012 Tue 31-Jul-12 12:41:53

No reply yet BUT I just went into my branch again at lunchtime and they had 2 on the shelf. The green gel next to it had been out of stock too but was full up. I think this probably means they have stock again and it's being bought up quickly at the moment.

Good luck Lotta, I hope you manage to find some.

Lottapianos Tue 31-Jul-12 12:42:36

Good for you Quenelle. The search continues.......

dexter73 Tue 31-Jul-12 20:38:08

Lots in my Boots today. I bought 3 just in case!

Lottapianos Wed 01-Aug-12 08:19:21

Ok phew, guess it hasn't been scrapped then!

QuenelleOJersey2012 Wed 01-Aug-12 10:19:54

I got a reply from Boots last night. It's definitely not been disco'd. They say they try to replenish out of stocks within two weeks so you should hopefully see some soon.

Was getting v nervous reading this... but big sigh of relief at end!

Lottapianos Wed 01-Aug-12 10:39:04

Thanks very much Quenelle. Relief all round! grin

dexter73 Wed 01-Aug-12 12:37:52

If anyone is desperate for some I can send you a pot!

milkymocha Sun 30-Sep-12 12:18:21

My best friend is at a lose as we cant not find this curl creme anywhere! We have tried 8 different branches- are you ladies still having trouble locating it? Shes desperate!
Thank you

milkymocha Sun 30-Sep-12 12:19:17

can not

NorksAreMessy Sun 30-Sep-12 12:21:51

nope, it has disapperaed in all the branches we tried, too.
We call it 'pink glop' and it really is the very best thing for DDs dry curly hair.

we are sad sad
