I've seen it randomly at various Shoppers Drug Marts. Try a Super Walmart, or Canadian SuperStore.

Also, you should check out Drugstore.com. You can order stuff from there and it's way cheaper than the store.

I'm having the same issue, I have a tough time finding Palmers Cocoa Butter. It's my favorite lotion and I'm thinking of ordering it online (like 10 at a time).

It's popular for CG because in the U.S. it's not Alberto VO5 like we have in Canada. Their's has no cones. I've never been able to find any of the VO5's mentioned on here in SDM, Superstore, Walmart, Zellers or any other store. I've tried in 4 cities within a 3.5 hr driving distance of me.

Oh and I was in the cities for other reasons, my PJ'ism hasn't gotten quite that out of control. LOL

Ours are Alberto, theirs are moisture milks. The moisture milks are the ones that cone free. Hard to say if they're even the same company.

I find that alot of the things American's say are CG when I read the ingredients are not here. I would love to know why there is a difference

Wink Vo5 Conditioner in Canada

HI, I know this post is older but I'm hoping it will help my fellow Canadian Curly Girls... you can find the VO5 (Silky) at factory direct online (factorydirect.ca)
They also sell them at the store, if there is one near you. The bottles ate $1.99 and they have several scents.
Hope this help!
