I have been in 3 branches and all are out of curl creme - big pink pot of wonder stuff for taming frizz into springy curls.

Have they withdrawn it?

What to use now? Whatever it is I bet it's going to cost more than three quid sad

Oh no! That's wonderful stuff!

Out of stock online as well sad

Say it isn't true!

Another Mumsnetter emailed Boots and it said they hadn't discontinued it.

I buy a produce by Naked called Curl Taming Cream from Boots. It's pretty good actually - I use it on DD's mixed race corkscrews. Best curl enhancer we've used.

Itsgottabebags - really? Has there already been another thread on this?! They better not have discontinued, or it could be a Mummsnet Campaign grin

Bought some olive oil pudding (which doesn't sound too appetising)

Yes and yes

I use and highly rate the Naked curling creme too- I like it better than the pink stuff smile

Used Boots and I now REALLY rate Phil Smith Curly Locks.

About £4 usually, but on offer in Sainsburys for 50% off.

Wonderful, it gives me curly curls, but no crispness.

I find the pink tub stuff a bit sticky.
Prefer Umberto Giannini's pink tube, think it's called scrunching gel.

Naked also do a great rich conditioner for curly hair - best we've discovered yet. I stock up on both when they have 3 for 2 offers.

Twisted Sista curl creme from Tesco's is also surprisingly good for £5.

Should mention the NAKED range is silicone free! (I don't own shares honest - it's has just changed our lives smile)

I don't like the CC stuff - I never think I'm doing it right. Always a bit sticky.

I am cross about this because have only just started to re-embrace the curls (after over a decade of straightening) and the blasted stuff has been out of stock ever since

However I am getting on very nicely with a combination of the Naked leave in conditioner and Umberto Giannini scrunching jelly - works a treat and no 'cones
