: European online stores (review)
Living in Europe can be pretty challenging, if you want to try all the great products people talk about on nc.com. I’ve spent a lot of time searching for online stores in Europe and thought it would be a good idea to share my experience here. Please if you know other good places (with international shipping) let us know.
The best three shops – based on personal experience:
British Curlies –
UK: Royal Mail Recorded Delivery: £3.99 for all orders
Europe: £9.99 for all orders over £25, £7.99 for all orders under £25
absolutely excellent, emails answered, personal assistance.
(not available other places): Curls Like Us Curl Cloth
Aubrey Organics, Batia & Aleeza, Crown Pride, Curl Junkie, Curl-ease towel, Curls, Curls Like us, Curly Hair Solutions, Kinky Curly, Miss Jessie’s, Mixed Chicks.
a fast growing store, new lines being added quite often
Sistas Curl Collection –
You can choose English from the main site. Or go straight to the English version:
app. € 11-13 with TNT, very fast, takes 48 hours to Denmark
absolutely excellent, emails answered, personal assistance
Komaza Care, Beauty by Donna Marie
African Wonders, Curls, Komaza Care, Beauty by Donna Marie, My Honey Child, Darcy’s Botanicals.

Other interesting online shops by country:
Maripossa improved very much after they got a new place and started shipping on the same day (if you order before 17.00). The shipping is with DPD and I pay € 13.50 to Denmark. I had problems contacting them in the summer, they don’t answer emails. Only telephone contact: Tuesday till Thursday from 14:30-16:30. Language: English.
Many lines, but prices are quite high. Ingredients are not listed.
