thank you for the video. its very helpful but whats making it flake? is it the gel? your hair came out beautiful, but i don't want the flaking...can i do it with just alotta body and not the gel? thanks
i love lotta body and swear by it. i have the same hair texture as you and i would never use any other setting lotion. but did you combine the lotta body with the gel, cuz if you did, then that could be the issue giving you the flakes. or maybe it was the amount of product used? any which way, your curls came out fabulous minus all that flaking and i love that bobby pin trick to make your curls fall onto your face.
Great video, especially for those of us who lack the skills to use perm rods when doing their own hair (me 😕)... a word of advice: when using lottabody setting lotion (not the foam), always dilute it. I have always used 1 part-to-4 or 5 parts water, mixed in a spray bottle for wraps & roller sets, applied to wet not damp hair. No flakiness during comfort or when taking out rollers with this method. Thanks again for the video!
The combination of the ingredients in the lotta body and eco styler are what's causing the flakes. The two products are reacting together and coagulating. Many products do this, you just have to find the appropriate combination of products.
hi great video btw! the flakes is caused by the mixture of eco styler gel and the lotta body lotion. Some products don't mix well with others hence the flakes...so u just gotta find a gel that 'agrees' with lottabody :-)
Yeah, with lotta body, you have to dilute it with water and use sparingly, no matter what. The bottles used to instruct the user to dilute the setting lotion, but I think when wraps became popular they took it off lol
Omg your hair is beautiful! Love the way this came out!! I tried a roller set about 4weeks back and also ended up with flakes galore!!! My bf and I had to sit and try get all them flakes out coz we were meeting his family for dinner later!!
Hey @shlinda1 you should have tried combining the products together before trying it on your hair. As in rub them together in your hands to see if a precipitate (flakes, balls etc) would form.
Awesome tutorial btw. :)
I learnt the hard way that my leave-in conditioner does not work.
Ms. Shlinda... I saw your hair and said... THAT'S my hair... but I think I'm 4C. It's springy too, only courser. I wear tree braids now but I'm considering showing the natural all the time. Forgive me, I didn't read all the comments, but did you try this hairstyle again and did you find a non-flaky substance that had the same benefit? Thanks in advance for answering. Love, love, love your how-to's!!
Your hair flaked from the Lotta Body setting lotion because you OVER sprayed your hair. It works best if you just spritz it on, not a gull spray where your hair is Saturated. Just an FYI, I had the same experience and this is what the beautician told me. Love your videos, you have me as a new follower. MChele
Beautiful curls, but what actually caused the flaking? Maybe you should have diluted the Lottabody more. Or used less gel. I have used Lottabody for many years, and have never known it to flake when used solo.
I don't think it was the lotobody that did that to your hair. I think it was the gel whenever I put my hair in curlers and use gel it's flaked up. But it didn't when I just put the gel by itself with no curlers.
