USPS Express Mail International days???

Hi All!!!!

I have predominately 4b hair with same patches of 4c and there are no natural products available in Australia for my hair type that I have resulted to ordering from the internet. I have ordered from Curl.biz on two occasions using USPS Express Mail International and have received my shipment within 3-5 days which correspond with dates on the USPS website and was also given a tracking number. However on the Curlmart FAQ it states that international shipment using USPS Express Mail International is 7 plus days, so Iím wondering if anyone has ordered from Curlmart using USPS Express Mail International and how long did the shipment take?

The reason Iím enquiring is while I love Curls products, I really want to try the KCCC as I have read so many great reviews.

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
I can understand where you're coming from. I feel like I've tried it all, but I have a couple of mostly natural products I like. One completely natural one is Sukin conditioner you can get at a health food shop, it's really good. I also like Garnier Nutri-Repair conditioner which is mostly natural & silicone free. You get Al'chemy and Moogoo (they are natural I think) from the health food shop too.

I haven't ordered from CurlMart because the exchange rate is crazy. I've tried to order from FragranceNet using USPS Express Mail but it took over 30 days and it turns out that the item got lost in the mail :\

Maybe CurlMart orders take longer because they have a variety (and A LOT) of products in stock and maybe it is a bigger business and is busier than Curls.Biz? Not sure. Sorry I couldn't help much.

I have ordered from curlmart but i used normal shipping as it seemed silly to use express when it was saying it would be here in about the same time but would cost more (I order at the end of last year so they have changed some things since then). I've looked at curlmart again but shipping is still ridiculous in price.

If you don't mind me asking what was the shipping price like on curlz?? And what products do you like and dislike i was looking at them not long ago - trying to hold my pj-ism off so i can afford to go on holidays! lol.

in terms of KCCC I love it and I have almost a full tub at home which i'm not using atm cos i have no hair! haha! If you're interested i'll send you a sample so you don't have to buy a whole tub and find out you hate it.

In terms of natural products have you tried aubrey organics http://shop.aubrey-organics.com.au/
I found an aussie site awhile ago, the customer service is great. I like the honeysuckle rose conditioner and the protein one, i bought the white camellia one too but i find it too heavier some how, which you're welcome too.

I was contemplating trying the swimmers shampoo and condish over summer as i swim reguarly, however i have a hoard of products in my bathroom that i'm trying to get through first, lol.

Curls.biz products are also sold in salons in Europe, Africa and South America and they have many international customers. I only have very positive feedback about curls.biz but the most positive is that I received my first order within 5 days and my second after 3 days using USPS Express Mail International and I was given a tracking number. I think everyday I checked the USPS Website to see where my shipment was LOL. My natural journey has been really frustrating, I have spent many months researching products for 4 hair type and pretty happy with curls. As mentioned I have read so many great reviews about KCCC for 4 hair type and want to try it. I have been in contact with someone at curlmart however their reply was vague.

Also thank you for your product suggestions.

By the way the Australian dollar is pretty strong against the US dollar right now, it's the best time to order from the US as one AU$ will buy you nearly one US$.

I think I will take my chances and order, will keep you posted (cross fingers it doesn't take 30 days).

I used to be a product junkie when my hair was relaxed, I used to buy anything that I could get my hands on, now that I'm natural, Im trying to be smarter and educate myself.

I recently compared shipment cost of curls.biz to curlmart. From curls.biz for Whipped cream 8oz (US$17) Express Mail International was US$27.95 and Priority Mail International was US$26.50. Whereas at curlmart for KCCC 8oz (US$17) Express Mail International was US$37.51 and Priority Mail International was US$30.06. Shipping cost are CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!

However I have noticed that at Curls.biz, the more that you puchase the lesser the shipment cost is. For example my first order at curls was:
  • Cleansing Cream - 8oz (Love!!)
  • Ecstasy Hair Tea Conditioner - 14oz (I love!!!!)
  • Quenched Curls Moisturiser - 8oz (little sticky but moisturising and great for my bedhead)
  • Curl Gel-les'c - 8oz (expensive, helps if there is curl definition already)
  • Clarifying shampoo-8oz - (Love!)
  • Whipped Cream-8oz (great for 4 type hair, took me the whole tub to figure out the right amount to use, LOL!! However, it's very moisturising going to re-order)
  • Coconut Sublime Conditioner-14oz (love it for co-washing during the week, I work out alot and sweat like there is no tomorrow)
  • Shower Detangler-8oz
  • Satin Sleeping Cap-8oz
Total cost for the above was US$120.90 and shipment cost via Express was US$59.75.

If some of the above products are suited to your hairtype and you want a sample let me know. Curls.biz is offering 20% to naturallycurly members, I'm going to order soon and can get free 3 samples (2oz) per order if you are interested?

I would love a sample of KCCC!!!!!!! I want a prodcut that clumps my curls. Guess what? I have really short hair too, cut off my relaxed hair!!

I think that the shipment cost and lack of immediate natural products for 4b plus hair has curbed my PJ-ism, LOL!!!!!! I will check out the webiste that you recommended, thank you and please PM me.

PEACE
Hi Kissa,
oooooh, so many products!! I think having shorter hair has really help me curb my PJism, I use the "well I can't use them now I might as well wait to buy them once I have more hair".
However I keep looking at all the sales and go - maybe i could just order this or that, but I know i'll go over board and order a million things. *runs off to check ou curlz.biz *
Once I go back to my uni house (haha I'm staying with my parents atm as it summer holidays yay!) I'll package you up a sample and send it off for you. I'll PM u once I'm organised.

Talk soon
