I quit using vo5 years ago becauase it made my head itch. I found this article when looking up it's ingrredients as my dentist told me that my laurenth sulfate is an irritant. I was wondering if that why vo5 itched my scalp. I love paul mitchell foaming pomade, but, it makes my head itch, lately and I noticed it has that ingredient, too. I don't know what to use any longer. Many things just don't softly hold my curls.
