Thanks for the Eco Styler rec, Beeduh and the info from EWG, Geek_Chic. EWG is a fascinating site, I don't think I've heard of it before. Being that I'm kind of picky about ingredients (as are my allergies), I like seeing the safety ratings. I'm afraid I'll have to rule out most drug store products for stuff I'm leaving in my hair.
The Eco Styler ingredients actually look safe though, except the fragrance might bother me, but that's Sally's not drugstore, right (I'm not near a Sally's so I'd have to get it online)? I think I might just pay more than drugstore and stick with a brand that I really like other products from, Alba. Their gel has the VP copolymer stuff. Oh well, the drug store was a nice thought.
