A year ago, I didn’t know what the “LOC Method” meant. A year later, I’m well versed in the LOC Method and the different products I can use when doing this method. Now that I know, however, I find it crazy strange when others don’t know what it means to LOC! Well, ladies, now it’s time to find out!
This method is for curlies and naturalistas. The LOC Method seals in moisture and hydrates dry, damaged locks. So, how do you LOC?
STEP 1 – Apply a moisturizing water-based leave-in conditioner to cleansed hair
STEP 2 – Apply a thin layer of oil to your hair to help lock in the moisture
STEP 3 – Apply a butter-based, creamy moisturizer to your hair to seal that moisture in
Admittedly, this routine takes a lot of trial and error to ensure that you’re using just the right product balance for your hair. Below is a picture of some of the products I like to use when I LOC! Here are articles that further explain the LOC method. The first is from Naturally Curly and the second is from Curly Nikki!
Also, here are two videos I LOVE that really do a great job at showing how to LOC your hair. One video is for winter LOC and the second video is for those with relaxed hair that need some extra moisture. I don’t recommend using the LOC method if you have relaxed hair UNLESS it’s super thick or still curly (like mine) because it’ll be too heavy for your hair, in my opinion.
