Unhappy Infinity Sun - too wet and sticky, about to give up...

I've been using the Infinity Sun Spa lite and solution for about a year now, and truthfully, its just way too sticky and wet.
I've tried adjustments to distance and pattern. All my clients are afraid to get dressed for ages!
Anyone else had this issue, or have any tips?
Thinking of changing machines/solutions.
thx

Make sure your room isn't to humid. You should have some fans in the room but your client should be dry in 15 minutes. It does take a little longer then other solutions I've used but results are nice.

I built a stand with 2 box fans stacked on top of each other; the customer stands in front of the fans until they are dry. never takes more than 5 mins.

I have a pretty great extraction system - and I have fans and blow driers there for use.
I'm thinking of getting a Maximist Pro so I can try out some new solutions.
Unfortunately you cant really use any other solution besides Infinitys in their machines because of the packaging, sI can't really tell if its the solution or the machine that is really not working for me at this point.

If you are thinking about changing machines I have a mystic blue box for sale and you can use any solution as long as you have an original mystic 5 jug, however the mystic solution is a good solution , sprays on light and even, and the Dha leaves a nice golden brown color and dries fast. Otherwise that's so solution is the best I have found

I agree they are all wet but not sticky. Some solutions dry in 5 minutes some 15 to 20. I get people dry in 5 minutes now.

Re: Infinity Sun - too wet and sticky, about to give up...

Oil is usually a big culprit in longer drying times. If you are looking for a product to dry as fast as possible try looking for one that is free of aloe and/or oils as these ingredients increase the drying times a bit.
