L- liquid, O- oil, C-cream L.O.C. Method 


So we’ve all probably have gotten pretty accustom to hearing the term “moisturize and seal” which is simply using a creamy water based leave in conditioner from the top of your roots to the tips of your strands to infuse your hair with moisture. After applying your leave in conditioner a oil is then applied to seal in that moisture to prevent it from evaporating or escaping into thin air causing unwanted dryness or lack of moisture. Moisturizing and sealing is a great method however, it is not the end all be all.

The L.O.C. method is another way to treat your hair to much needed moisture and softness. So what is the L.O.C. method? L.O.C. are acronyms that stand for L- liquid, O- Oil, C- Cream. The way you use this method will be to first apply your liquid as in a leave in conditioner. Leave in conditioners are great for hydrating the hair, repairing damage, and conditioning dry brittle hair. After applying your leave in spray of choice then apply your favorite oils or hair butters.

Oils like coconut oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, or olive oil are wonderful and should be used from root to tip in small amounts. Raw shea butter could also be used instead of oils if that is your preference. The last and final step will be to use a leave in conditioner overtop of the leave in spray, oil, or hair butter. This method is especially great for people that do not like the feel of greasy or weighed down hair. Applying these products to wet hair will make your hair soft, conditioned, and bouncy once your hair is dry.
