I highly agree that the shipping cost is ridiculous. I live in the United States Virgin Islands and curlmart wouldn't offer flat rate shipping or free shipping. The only why I continue to buy from them is because Kbb hair nectar is hard to find. Sagenaturalcutecals offers flat rate shipping why can't Curlmart. For there FYI, the USVI is not an international country. We are a part of the United States of America.
