1940s hairstyles

I've recently become obsessed with wanting to try 1940s pinup style hairdos. I spent all last night practicing my reverse rolls (I've heard them called victory rolls) and have finally had some success. There's a wonderful website called fedoralounge with a great message board.

I want to try setting my hair overnight in rollers or pincurls. It seems that most of the girls recreating vintage dos are using setting lotion. Well, I asked at Sally's and what they handed me had Alcohol Denat as the first ingredient, so I didn't buy it. I also heard of one called Lottabody, but couldn't find it in the store. It's ingredients are
Water , Polyquaternium-11 , Peg-40 Lanolin , Polysorbate 20 , Fragrance , Methylparaben , DMDM Hydantoin , D&C Red No. 33

That doen't sound great to me, but I don't really know. I'm trying to lay off sulfates. Does anyone have any thoughts about these ingredients?
Or about setting lotions in general? Or a recomendation for something to use instead?

I wish I knew how to post pictures. I was so proud of my victory rolls, they're hardto do.
I rarely use setting lotion but when I do it's Lottabody or Proclaim (both available at Sally's). I have to use a moisturizing leave-in underneath or it will be too drying and crispy.

I've used Lottabody before. It's good, didn't get any build up.

ETA: yes, I also used a leave in underneath so my hair wouldn't be crispy/crunchy.
