Remember the post I did on the Healthy Hair Tips we can learn from Naturals? Well let's add one more technique to that list. In the first post I wrote in length about how naturals are obsessed with maintaining high moisture levels. Out of their obsession came a moisture creation technique that will change the game forever.
The L.O.C method is all about layering. First we moisten our hair with a liquid (this infuses the hair with moisture), then seal the liquid in with oil, but wait, we're not finished yet... Then we add a creamy moisturizer to finish off the process. The result is hair that's moisturized like never before.
Y'all know that I had test this experience for myself to see how my hair liked it. Turns out that I had to remix the order of application a little to get it just right. My hair likes when I use a liquid, cream, oil (L.C.O). I even got great results with liquid, oil, cream, oil (L.O.C.O). For some reason, I just didn't feel comfortable with my water based moisturizer as the final step. Habit always causes me to finish that layer with oil. When I first started experimenting, I used a leave-in as my liquid. Yesterday, I tried it with MSM water then applied Aveda Damage Remedy daily moisturizer and finished off with Gleau Argan oil blend. The overall results were magic. This is a perfect routine for winter. I like the idea of using MSM water because my hair is also getting the benefits from using MSM. Some say that MSM has the ability to impact growth and help keep new growth soft.
Who's tried this method already? Tell me what you think?
