Another very popular US brand has arrived on our UK shelves, and if you're a regular reader of this blog you already know where to find it. Karen's Body Beautiful products are now available at ...surprise surprise.... >Zara Hair & Cosmetics<.

I've already had my say on how I feel about the prices or over pricing of certain natural hair products in the UK >see here<, so I was pleased to discover that KBB products fall into my 'acceptable/bareable' price range; somewhere between £10 - £15. 
I hadn't planned to come away with quite as much as I did.
In the end I picked up some Shea Butter Cottage treats including:
Henna Powder (£2.99)
Indigo Powder (£4.49)
Tropic Isle Living JBCO (no salt) (£? Can't remember - under a tenna!)
as well as my very first Karen's Body Beautiful product. I went for the Sweet Ambrosia Leave-In Conditioner (£11.99)
I was even lucky enough to be gifted a product from another new brand - Tangle-free Pudding by Milk + Honey. I've never heard of Milk + Honey products before but if you have please let me know. 
How are your shopping experiences for natural hair products, where you're from? What brands have you been looking out for?
