I use to use vo5, but, it made my head itch. I've recently stopped Paul Mitchell foaming pomade, because it has laureth sulfate in it. I don't know what to use now. My dentist told me it was an irritant when I told him my toothpaste bothered me. I use a toothpaste w/o it and no more problem. Now I quit using the foaming pomade and my hair.....ugh! It's funny I found this website when looking up vo5 ingredients and saw your link.
