Roller sets

Can anyone recommend any setting lotions to do a two strand twist perm rod set? The only styler I use is KKCC and that doesn't seem like it would do well sitting under a warm hooded dryer. Thanks!

    I use gel for my rollersets and curlformers. For me it works better than setting lotion. I like AVG over my li and oil.
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:

    I may have to give my KKCC a try then before I completely rule it out! Thank you!

    Jane Carter Wrap and Roll. I used this for roller sets while transitioning. Decent hold without crunchiness. I also use this for wash and goes.

    Use a heat protectant or leave in conditioner. The leave in conditioner I use is called something like HCO by Design Essentials, it is in a spritz bottle form. It is used to spray on wet hair before blow drying it.

    Ok so I JUST now tried a roller set with Jane Carter Wrap and roll. The product is not the issue. I can not get my hair on the roller smoothly for nothing. I use the rollers with the metal clips. Should I be using a different kind? I have watched so many YouTube videos and they make it look so easy. 😔

    Also, the two strand twist rod set with KCCC was a success :)

    Naptural85 has a video in which she uses bobby pins to smooth the hair when doing a roller set (think she is using flexirods). I don't know the name of the video but I bet you could find it pretty easily. I've never tried this technique, but maybe it will work for you. Good luck!

    I use a good leave in conditioner, oil, and typically cream of nature argan oil foam wrap setting lotion.

    Her whole website is pretty nice, one thing she seems to emphasize is learning to smooth your ends well. It takes me a while to get it...I'm still learning to get smooth consistent sets but honestly practice is the only thing that will help.
