John Frieda Dream Curls. Help needed.

I’m a huge fan of John Frieda Dream Curls Air-Dry waves styling foam but it seems to be sold out EVERYWHERE. I can’t find it in shops or online (apart from ridiculous prices on amazon). Can any wise mnetters point me in the right direction or recommend any alternatives?
My hair is quite thick and about shoulder length. It’s naturally quite wavy at the back and a bit straighter at the front. If I scrunch this through it then it all dries naturally (no styling time required) into soft waves which I really like.
I’m dreading not being able to find this product, or an alternative, and having to go back to drying it straight all the time 😫

My daughter has thick curly hair and one of the best products she's found is Phil Smith's Curly Locks spray from Sainsbury's. She sprays it into her wet hair after a shower and it really brings out the wave/curl but isn't sticky.

Email J.Frieda, they should give you the heads up help.

Hi All, thank you for your replies. I emailed JF (not sure why I didn’t just think of that blush ). This is what they said;

We are sorry that we cannot provide you with our Frizz Ease Air Dry Waves Styling Foam at the moment. We have been reorganising our production process for this product, but we expect stock of the Air Dry Waves to reach your favourite retailers over the next few days. In the meantime, you might like to try our Frizz Ease Dream Curls Daily Styling Spray by way of an alternative.

My DH used those for years for his curly mop, then recently switched to any old mousse to similar effect!

I use tesco serum - it's a lot like the JF one but a damn sight cheaper (£1 a bottle!) and conditions my curls so I'm not just a frizzy mess. Less stiff than foam/mousse and as it's cheap I use quite a bit

That's a good tip LittleWing. Do you just use it on wet hair and air dry?

Yeah sopping wet hair, part into 2 bunches, use about 12 squirts on each side, comb with wide tooth comb... Leave to dry, job done! This makes my hair gently ringlet (it's about 4 inches past my shoulders in length when dry)
