Default What is the best high street hair products for type 3a hair?

What is the best shampoo/conditioner/weather proof hair products for type 2C/3A hair that's on the high street in the UK? I'm a student so don't have that much money and looking to spend around about 5 per hair product if possible, if not then could spend around 10.

This is what my hair looks like now:

I'm not sure if it is still available, but if it is, it would be a good option for you to try. Boots Curl Creme. It was inexpensive and available in UK. Everyone raved about it years ago.

Type: 3a fine & dense,with normal porosity, terrible product junkie
ROUTINE: LI, enhancer, gel, plop with Curlease towel, serum product (either CIAB or Gel-les'c), clip & diffuse.
Too many favourite products to list ... I finally have my routine that works and alot of products to choose from. My product stash is huge, but well loved !!!

Try tresemme naturals conditioner if you are co washing. Have a look at the Naked hair range in boots too as its sometimes on offer. Gel wise, the Garnier fructus 24hr hour stuff isn't bad and is also fairly cheap. The John frieda curly gel is good too but a bit dearer - about 6 (when bought from the likes of Asda as opposed to boots). HTH

I absolutely love the Trevor Sorbie line, especially the curl conditioner (in a purple bottle, about 5 pounds at Boots). I wish I could get it here in the States!

Hair type: Fine, fairly porous, shoulder length when curly. Probably a 3a or 3b with tight ringlets now that it's getting longer. Hair loves aloe, hates glycerin.

Co-Wash: Suave Naturals Aloe and Waterlily (my HG conditioner!)
Rinse Out: Garnier Sleek and Shine, Trevor Sorbie curl conditioner (UK only, unfortunately)
Stylers: KCCC, AG Re:coil, TIGI mousse, but open to suggestions!
Gels: BRHG (my one and only)
