FYI, I have ditched the setting lotions and multi product layering for one product that seems to do it all for me. Since October 2014, I’ve been using Coco Curls Moisturizing Styling Creme for basically all of my wet sets. I do use a leave-in no matter what, but this product gives me the perfect texture and shine for all of my roller sets, braid outs, twist outs and flat twist outs. It gives my hair a soft fluffy buttery feel with loads of staying power.
I’m not giving up on setting lotion or other products, it’s just that this one product sets and moisturizes so I don’t have to use any additional products to master my wet sets.
My two other styles I wear on a regular basis are a blowout/afro or an afro puff/bun. These are super simple styles that work well for my shoulder length hair and are perfect for my busy lifestyle.
