    If so, what would you use? A friend of mine is looking to wear crisp curls - vintage - old Hollywood-style. But she's nervous - the last time she did, her hair came out due to the alcohol-based setting lotions. Her stylist tells her there's no such thing as a setting lotion w/ no alcohol. Is this true?

    What do you use? (I could've sworn I saw an ad recently in Sophisticate's Black Hair for an alcohol free mousse that could be used for sets. A lady blowing a cloud of mousse in her hand to the camera. What's the product? - Please jog my memory...)

    I went to the nexxus site and didn't have the patience to sit through their Flash demonstration. I hate when websites don't give you the option of bypassing that sort of thing. I DON'T have time for that. [​IMG]

    Pro-Line's Perm Repair setting lotion is alcohol free and I believe Fantasia's IC makes one that is alcohol free with silk protein.

    I think Deep Brilliance Control - Soft Control Foam doesn't appear to have any alcohol. Lots of protiens though.

    Isoplus also has an alcohol-free setting lotion for roller sets. I've tried it but didn't like the way it made my air feel. The setting lotion has nettle, rosemary, aloe and all the other things that we like. I think I paid about $3 for it. It is in a pink and white bottle.HTH

    I can't find the bottle right now but I believe Vitale (my favorite setting lotion diluted) is alcohol free or non drying alcohol free.

    Back home at last. Pounding the pavement in a few
    Fantasia IC styling gel w/ Sparkle lites can be used as a setting gel. The key is to use a light hand with it or crunchy hair.
