Or VP/VA copolymer? I know this is vinyl or plastic or something, but I'm noticing it's in my favorite products and that I don't get the hold I need when this ingredient is missing. It is usually the 2nd or 3rd ingredient.

Do you know of a cheap drugstore gel (or other styler) with this ingredient (and without cones or parabens)?

I know lots of people like the LA Looks gels, and the 2nd ingredient is simply pvp, no copolymer listed. Is this the same thing? Thanks!!
