L.O.C. Method

This month when it comes to moisturizing my hair I am going to give the L.O.C. method  a try. I have been reading about this method for quite some time now, its suppose to keep hair moisturized for a longer period of time, reducing the need to moisturize every day. Since I no longer have time to or should rather say that I am usually too tired to moisturize every day or every night I am ready to try just about anything that would help keep my hair feeling soft and moisturized longer. If you are not familiar with the L.O.C. method its basically just 3 simple steps.


Step 1 Apply Liquid:

The best liquid around is water, although I have seen where some people use Aloe Vera juice instead. Starting with freshly washed hair is a great start!

Step 2 Seal with Oil:

Apply oil to wet/damp hair and scalp. This will seal in the moisture from the liquid/water. I think a light penetrating oil like coconut oil or jojoba oil maybe best for this step. Olive oil may be a bit too heavy.

Step 3 Apply Cream Based Moisturizer:

For this last step the cream based moisturizer should be applied to the ends of the hair. Supposedly any cream based moisturizer could be used but I’m going to switch this step up a bit. Instead of using store bought cream moisturizers like Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie or Hollywood Beauty Olive Cream Hairdress, I’m using my whipped shea butter mix. My current mix has Aloe Vera Gel added to it so I use it like a moisturizer and styler.


L.O.C. method is a little different than my usual moisturizing routine of water first, leave in conditioner second, third seal with an oil or shea butter and last step style with a gel. I’m hoping that it will provide the longer lasting moisture that I’m looking for.
Until next time. . .

    I never heard of this one however it really makes sense. Can conditioner work as a cream in this method?

    I have substituted a creamy leave in and my hair didn't dry out. I think that regular conditioner would work. If you try it I would love to know how it turns out. Thanks for reading 🙂
