Natural 101: The LOC Method
Yesterday I raised the question about concerns us ladies have with dealing with our natural hair in the Winter. It seemed like all the ladies had the same problem.. maintaining moisture. So today I wanted to go over a method I use to help keep my hair moisturized for days that some naturals may not be aware of.. and that my friends would be the L.O.C Method.
L.O.C Method? What is that?
Simply put the L.O.C Method is an acronym that describes the three steps: Liquid, Oil and Cream. By using the L.O.C Method you’re bound to retain moisture as you are sealing in the moisture in every step.
There’s only three steps? How does it work?
+ You first use a liquid on your hair. By liquid, it can be water.. or a water-based leave-in to moisturize your hair. Your choice. I personally just go with water. You can’t go wrong with water. Ever.
+ Then you seal the liquid with an oil whatever your favorite may be. Me personally, I love coconut oil.
+ And finally, you seal the oil with a butter or cream and style. I either use Shea Moisture Enhancing Curling Smoothie or DIY Haircare’s Mango Apricot Butter.
Now those with thin or fine hair may find this method weighs down your hair. Like with anything pertaining to hair, it’s all trial and error. Find what works for you. I would highly recommend this method to ladies who are still battling moisture issues this Winter.
Have you tried the L.O.C Method? Do you find it to be effective? What products do you use?
