I've really been liking this. I recently started using product in my hair again after years of needing nothing but a smoothing type cream for an ultrashort pixie. I use it for vintage-inspired pincurls and really it has given me no reason to stray or experiment.
My hair won't hold a dry set well but I find wet hair frustrating to pincurl so I apply Lottabody to damp hair after I shower (for my fine, straight shoulder length hair I use it diluted about 50/50 and pour about a tablespoon of this mixture into my palms, then rub through my hair). I let it air dry almost completely, pincurl, then saturate the curls using a spray bottle of water, and sleep on it.
I end up with soft, shiny, well defined curls that brush out well to soft vintage inspired looks. I have never experienced crunchiness or tackiness, and although my hair is prone to limpness the Lottabody has never seemed to weigh it down. There's definitely a difference in how well my sets last with Lottabody versus without.
It has no scent that I can detect, and I like the reduced-waste packaging of buying it in a dilutable form. Plus it's cheap as can be. Going to stick with it.

How do I know I am a product junkie? Every few months, I dig through all the "trying-this" products in my hair stuff drawer, come up with this, can't remember why it fell from favor, and use it diluted 50/50 in a wet set. To get right to the point, I love the shiny curls (big rollers yield about 1-inch ringlets) that hold perfectly against frizziness so long as I Do Not Touch them beyond finger-raking. I don't love the texture or look once I brush it out and can't be sure that I can fix this by increasing dilution, but I haven't really tried.
So why do I keep buying & trying (this would be a rhetorical question but for MUA :D)? I need to get past the extremely plain bottle and irrational association with other stuff my mom used back in the day like Dippity Do and Nestle's Superset (can I get a witness?). Gotta keep working with Lottabody, at least until I fall for the next brightly colored can/jar/bottle of snake oil...from Armenian baby snakes, maybe, raised only on macadamia nuts (joking reference to eternal search for HG - do not look for this product).
P.S. If it matters, I have fine Af/Am hair (3a-3b curl pattern), which I prefer to wear in loose waves after brushing out a wet set. In the semi-tropical climate where I live, we are rarely without at least 50% humidity. Frizziness is a constant state of being.

Um, yeah, I don't know if I'm not doing this right or what, but it doesn't seem to work for me. First of all, I should say that I use hot rollers, not the other kind. I tried washing my hair, putting in a 50/50 mixture of this when it was damp, blow drying, and then putting in a little more of this. Then I wait for that to dry and put in my hot rollers. Am I doing this incorrectly? I really really want this to work for me, so if anyone has any advice, let me know.

I do vintage styles (curls) with my hair regularly, and usually my curls only last a couple of hours, no matter how much hairspray I use. If I remember to use lottabody after I wash my hair (diluted in a spray bottle and sprayed onto wet hair), my curls last for DAYS! I can get gorgeous, soft, lasting 1940's curls with this setting lotion. It's amazing. Highly recommended!

I bought this to do wet sets for pin curls but I started to use this during blow outs to create body in my flat hair.
This works really well for that. It creates body without being sticky or helmet head like at all. The price is right and you can do dilutions for stronger or softer hold. This also makes your hair shinier too!

I had read so many rave reviews of Lottabody Setting Lotion that I had to try it for myself. I've used other setting lotions on my medium-thick, wavy-curly hair before to tame the poufiness and to add body, so I figured I would love Lottabody.
Unfortunately, I wasn't so crazy about it.
First, it seemed like I could never get the dilution right. I'm pretty sure I would need to use it straight to get it to work with my hair, which has a sort of spongy texture. It didn't hold my style at all, but it did give my hair body.
Second, I'm 99.9% sure that this stuff caused a horrible rash that appeared on my neck and jawline right after using it. My skin is so sensitive that it's hard for me to pinpoint any one thing that can cause it to break out in a rash, but I'm leaning toward the Lottabody in this instance, simply because it made my head itch really bad, too. Again, I haver really sensitive skin, so for most people, I doubt this would be a problem.

I've been using LottaBody for yearrrrsssssss now since I was a little girl. I have relaxed shoulder length hair and this product keeps roller set curls, pin curls, straw curls, flexi & perm rod styles for days! I love it, it's my staple product!

Dude, this shit is AMAZING.
Me: Thick Asian hair that holds neither volume nor curls.
Me + Lottabody diluted (1:4? I don't remember): Curls that last for days. Curls that I can't brush out.
This stuff turns my hair into some kinda curl-holding mutant. It's MAGIC. Stuff lasts until I wash my hair again.

An absolute MUST for any gal interested in learning to pincurl her hair and work with vintage hairstyling, as well as any gal who uses rollers regularly.
Lottabody is a setting lotion. Just so we are clear: setting lotion is not gel. It is a liquid. As in, it is runny like water. It is applied to wet hair before rolling or waving. It helps hold curl in hair -- for days, if needed! It's used in dilution, so everyone has to figure out what strength works best for them... but once you do, your curls will be the most beautiful they have ever been. Lottabody helps me avoid frizz in my fine, wavy hair when I am setting it either on rollers or in pincurls. It's amazingly cheap, so effective, and generally wonderful. Top notch!

I've played around this this setting product for a few weeks now. I find myself using it every day no matter what my style is. Firstly, I did have to play around with the strength a few times. It was either somewhat crusty or watery. The perfect solution for me is a 1 to 4 ratio. I have very VERY fine, impossibly straight shoulder length hair, that's been processed blonde. My hair has literally no frizz or curl to it, and as a result it's super flat. I lightly spray Lottabody to my hair after I shower (along with Aveda's phomollient foam). I blow dry my hair and leave it if I'm not curling it. It's super soft with a ton of volume. If I'm going to curl or set my hair I'll lightly spray it again with the Lottabody. I proceed with either hot rollers, a curling iron, or dry foam rollers. I only give my hair another spray of Lottabody if I'm using dry rollers without heat.
With Lottabody I don't need to spray my hair with hairspray until it's finished. My curls hold all day no matter what the temperature is. I can't get over how cheap this stuff is. I bought a small bottle and it will easily last me months. This has quickly become one of my HG hair products.
Update: Motions Foaming Wrap lotion is exponentially better then this product. I found with Lottabody, my hair was getting crusty and if I diluted it, it didn't hold. I'm not going to be using this product again!

I have straight, thick, bra-strap length hair with long layers. I spray this on my wet hair after showering, and before spraying heat protectant. Then I do my blow out with large brush and blow dryer to get soft, big waves. Thanks to Lottabody, I don't need to use any hairspray to keep the big curls, so they are soft and move. The Lottabody seems to help cut down on my blowdry time. There is no scent to the product.
Only 4 lippies as I have not been able to try this out in higher humidity yet (it's spring in L.A. and has not been rainy lately). Will update; hopefully my curls will hold even in hot weather and sweat!

I think this broke me out. It seemed like I was getting breakouts when I was using it, so I quit and my skin got better. Also, I have to say, I think I had *less* body to my hair when I was using it. Do not want.

After discovering I had a Sally's nearby (woot!) I decided to try this based on the reviews here.
I have very fine, limp hair that I have permed to add body. However, the perm has grown out quite a bit so I have to use a setting lotion when I roller-set (I like big, soft curls as opposed to the small perm curls).
Normally, I use an inexpensive mousse or watered-down hairspray but thought I'd give this a shot. I diluted it 3:1 according to the directions, sprayed evenly and set my hair. After my hair had dried (part air dry, part dryer with heat) I removed the curlers.
Initially, the set was strong; I had to rake my hands through it to tone it down a bit. However, after only 4 hours, it started to lose volume. After 8 hours, it wasn't quite flat but had lost it's bounce. Not impressive, especially since it was a humidity-free winter day.
One thing I will say is that it does leave your hair shiny so one point for that. Another for holding the curls and one for the frizz control.
Will try again at a 2:1 ratio and see if that holds better.

this is my absolute favorite for rollersetting. my naturally thick/curly loves this product! i dulute it 1 part lottabody to 2 parts water, rollerset, then either wear it in curls or blow dry it straight. the result is so shiny with alot of body and swing, and it stays that way for at least 5 days.

I never heard of this product until the saleslady recommended this. I went to the beauty store just to buy curlers but she said I needed this. I bought it only because of her and I was not able to check the reviews on MUA like I normally do. I used it on my hair before I put my curlers on. You have to dilute it with water and put it in a spray bottle. It set my curls nicely and they look so smooth and shiny. They made my curls last long. My hair gets frizzy and it is dry and this really toned it down and made my hair look healthy. Love it. I would buy it again.

I, too, was very pleased with lottabody whenever I did wet sets. It gave good hold and made my hair look shiny. My hair still had bounce. The bottle sucks, so I transfered it to another bottle to avoid messy spills. I bought mine at Sally's for less than five bucks and you get a good sized bottle of this stuff.

Tottally agree with what other posters said: this is one of the best products on the market for keeping curl! I have straight-straight-straight, fine brunette hair. I read about this on here, went to Sally's Beauty, and found this in their african-american hair care section. Since I am caucasian, I wasn't sure that I understood the other reviews of this product but bought it anyways-- it was on sale for just $3.99 for a 32oz bottle that then should be watered down. I normally use mouse, a curling iron and tons of hairspray, but with Lottabody, I just hop out of the shower, spritz on some 50/50 solution, and blow dry straight. Then I really spray down my hair and then curl with a hot curling iron. When I'm done, I spray a little bit more on my hands and then scrunch the curls in my palms (to give it more keep). I wait ten minutes and then put a 2 squirts of a smoothing serum on my hands and lightly squeeze the curls again. Amazingly, the curls stay all day without being crunchy. Just a lot of body, like it says. AMAZING PRODUCT! I've never been able to keep curls more than a few hours before!

yay MUA! Through productville I discovered another HG for hair. My hair is mixed texture and there is a lot of it. Normally when I airdry it goes really wavy and huge, and often frizzy, even when I put all kinds of creams, etc. in them. It's really good and controlled only when I use heat styling. When I read about lottabody and how it softened and controlled hair, I thought for $4 I would try it. And indeed, it was a pretty decent wavy hair day for being airdried! I will have to experiment more, but for sure this is going to be a routine part of my hairstyling. The effect is almost like a very light hold hairpspray, but no stickiness, no crunchiness. I use it diluted.

LOVE this for my wetsets. I try to stick with the already diluted kind. But both work just as well. I wanna try to LottaBody Cream Wrap Setting Cream. Heard its even better.
