LOC Method For Natural Curly Hair | To LOC or Not To LOC

LOC Method

If you’re natural then you know one of the most important things you can do for your hair is keep it moisturized. The goal is to avoid breakage and retain length. A lot of curlies achieve this by applying water to their hair in between washes and co-washes.

However, The LOC Method is another way to achieve and maintain moisture in between washes. To accomplish the LOC method you apply 3 different substances and follow 3 easy steps.

LOC Method Steps

Step 1:

Liquid – You can achieve this step with freshly washed hair or by spraying dry hair with a water bottle.

Step 2:

Oil – The second step is to apply oil. I like avocado, coconut and extra virgin olive. I’ve heard jojoba, grape seed and argan (I just ordered argan-yesss) are also good. You can use them alone or mix then in a bottle. Furthermore, jojoba oil is the best because it mimics sebum which is the oil our hair and skin naturally produces.

Remember: Oils should be applied to wet hair. Therefore, if your hair is not wet, the oil will only sit on top the hair and it won’t penetrate.

Step 3:

Cream – Applying your cream is the final step. It should be thick and have a shea butter consistency; this seals the water and oil in. Some naturals substitute the cream with their styling product during this step.

Some curlies perform steps 2 and 3 interchangeably. Any order is fine just be sure to keep your hair moisturized at all times.
