Listen up naturalistas! (especially international ones!) This review isn't actually for a product but a site.

iHerb.com - Vitamins, Supplements & Natural Health Products

I love this place. They have tons of natural organic products from supplements to hair gel. I placed an order on Saturday and it arrived today, packaged meticulously. From the teeny tiny bottles of essential oils to the jars--everything was cushioned neatly and sealed so that it wouldn't spill or roll around. I also received a discount code for future reference. If anybody wants to use it you can use WRL881 (mine) or VHT541 (aqua_lily's) for $10 off your first purchase of $40 or $5 off a smaller order. This time around I ordered oils, shea butter, and things for making my own hair products. Next time I'll order some hair products themselves maybe.

Hi curlies,
I'm reviving this topic...
I bought at Iherb: KCCC, KCKT, KC Come Clean shampoo, AOGPB Shampoo (wanted to buy the conditioner but I accidentally misordered and in fact I like the shampoo so that's ok ), AO Honeysuckle Rose conditioner

First of all I want to say that they ship very very quickly (I had my package 5 days after ordering and I live in Europe) and that I think they are rather cheap (didn't calculate customs tariff though which was a surprise to me, but they are still cheap and I have an idea on how to avoid high customs tariffs in the future moohahhaha).
So I will definitely order again!

On my Iherbwishlist at the moment (I do love the fact that you can make a wishlist on their website):
- AOGPB Conditioner (this time I will get it right)
- AOGPB Conditioner with Lavender/ylang ylang scent
- Walden Farms Thousand Islands Dressing (which has nothing to do with my hair I just like to eat it and I don't find it here)
- Mill Creek Biotin Conditioner
- Now Foods Essential Oils Grapefruit scent (I'm planning to try to make FSG and would like to add a nice scent if that's possible)
- Now Foods Essential Oils Orange scent
- Now Foods Essential Oils Cinnamon Cassia scent

As I said, I am planning to make my own FSG.
What things (that are available on Iherb) do you order to add in your FSG? (links please!)

I'm especially looking for something proteiny and something like aloe vera gel (which I haven't tried yet because I only find it here at ridiculous expensive prices)

I ordered from iherb and they shipped my order to Asia pretty quickly, in "meticulous packaging" as well. I would absolutely order from them again and recommend to others. Also shipping prices to Asia were far more reasonable than Curlmart (though they don't carry everything Curlmart does.)

My discount code is in my siggy!

Awesome to hear how well the site works out for people internationally. I often fantasize about moving to France. . . and now I can just incorporate Iherb into my fantasy.

Actually iherb is a really good option for that area... there's are hardly any CG products available to begin with and the ones that are available are sold at premium, premium prices (like 2-3x the USD value).

I see so many Asian curlies walking around, they're in the minority (but I see you, I know who you are!) with their hair brushed out, sulfated to wiry cotton candy cloud, probably wondering why their hair is so "weird." It hurts me inside a little. Actually, before I discovered this site I switched to a no-good low-poo, condish combo and I was walking around with the cotton candy cloud for months, not understanding why my hair was just so damn awful, while all the other straight-haired people had shiny locks that were literally incapable of frizzing despite tropical conditions. But now I know so much better! Thanks nc.com! [/sidenote]
