Default Sebastian Potion 9-- Did they change the ingredients?

I used to use this stuff a few years back and loved it then... so I thought I'd give it another shot. I used it this morning and love the results. While reading another post, someone had asked if anyone knew of a leave in treatment that didn't have glycerine in it... because she was told by her stylist that glycerine strips red coloring. So, off to the bathroom I went to see if this stuff had glycerine in it (it does). I saw there was a huge sticker with the ingredients that was placed on the box... I started to pull back the sticker and saw that the ingredients weren't the same. Anyway, I thought I'd see if anyone else here noticed that or noticed a change in the way the product's results.

One major thing I noticed-- the box said the third ingrdient was vegetable oil.... It is not listed as an ingredient on the sticker that was placed over the ingredients printed on the box. That kinda grossed me out... I guess I'm more of a canola oil fan myself... When it comes to cooking and baking. Supposedly it's healthier for you.

I've used this product for years as both a leave in and stand-alone styling product. I've not noticed any difference in the way it performs through the years. I've gone back to using this as a stand-alone styling product and am very, very happy with the results.

Any oil from a vegetable source could be called vegetable oil -- olive, jojoba, avocado, coconut -- could be anything.

I got the last two boxes of my Potion 9 on clearance from JCPenney approximately 6 months ago because they weren't going to sell it anymore.

Mine has a printed ingredients label, no stickers other than the store's price tags.

As for the oil ranking in the ingredients list after water at #1:

Glycerin is 2nd. Vegetable is 3rd.

Jojobo seed is 4th. Safflower seed is 5th. Some other is 6th (orbignya oleifera seed). Olive fruit is 7th. Evening primrose is 8th. Sesame seed is 9th. Rice bran is 10th.

Then there are some extracts:

Camelellia sinensis leaf comes in at #11. Willow bark is #12.

I just came here searching on this, I saw that this contains Trimethylsilylamodimethicone, I thought I read somewhere this is not soluble in water. Going to continue my search to find out for sure.

That stinks if so because it's been almost 2 months since I used any cones and my hair has never been curlier!

Yeah, I can't get it from the beauty supply house I go to anymore. That makes me wonder what's up.
