The LOC Method: Everything You Need to Know for Hydrated and Moisturized Curls
Enter any natural hair forum and you’ll hear LOC method this…LOC method that… but what is the LOC method and what does it do?
First, let’s start with what LOC stands for. L is for liquid/leave-in, O is for oil, and C is for cream. This technique consists of combining a water-based product, a hair oil of your choice, and a cream to aid in retaining moisture in your hair.
This technique is excellent for people with high-porosity hair! With high porosity hair, the cuticles are raised resulting in rapid moisture loss. The LOC method helps seal in that moisture supporting hydration and optimal hair health.
Our recommended routine to achieve the LOC method on your hair is by using the Originals by Africa’s Best Liquid Hair Mayonnaise Leave-In Conditioner, the Originals by Africa’s Best Olive & Clove Hair & Scalp Oil Therapy, and the Originals by Africa’s Best Olive & Aloe Moisturizing Growth Lotion.
Kiss dry hair strands goodbye when you use this product combo! This process immediately helps you combat dryness and breakage while simultaneously enhancing the shine and luster of your hair. Meanwhile, Clove Oil as an ingredient was intentionally chosen to help strengthen the hair while also supporting hair growth.
Now that you know what the LOC method is, try it out for yourself, and make sure to let us know how it goes. We can't wait to hear how it works for you!
