You're absolutley right; it IS tough to find products in the Montreal area. I mostly order stuff from Honey Fig, or stock up when I happen to be in Toronto.

Which Trade Secrets did you try? I know there are a few locations in Mtl, but I don't think any of them are centrally located....

To be honest I'm not that familiar with Abba Pure Products, but have you tried Winners? Lately I've noticed they have litre containers of Giovanni Conditioners as well as Nature's Gate Products.

Also, there's a store in the Plateau area that now sells Kinky-Curly and Miss Jessie's stuff. I've never been to the store so I can't say so for a fact, but I saw the info when I happened to be on the Kinky-Curly website.....

Good luck in your search!
