If you are on a tight budget, spending money on hair products such as setting lotion may not be within your budget. Whether you are creating a wet set, curler set or going for a wavy, natural look, a setting lotion helps to hold your hairstyle in place. You can make your own setting lotion quite inexpensively using items that you may already have in your pantry.
