I, like you, love this product also which I picked up whilst in Miami. I totally agree, the price they are selling the Shea Moisture and As I Am products for is absolutely ridiculous and pure greed!
I am starting to see Shea Moisture products in the shops now also (well a shop so far :-)). Same price as on the Curly Emporium but less the postage and packaging. They have a fairly good selection of the Shea Moisture line but had run out of some as no doubt they are pretty popular. Beauty Queens Cosmetics on Turnpike Lane.
