The L.O.C. Method has been around for a while and for very good reason.

If your natural hair sucks up everything you use to moisturize it and still cries out for more moisture, then it's probably time to test out what so many other naturals SWEAR BY, the L.O.C Method.

The L.O.C. Method has been a hot topic around the web and natural hair community for the longest now because it helps so many natural-haired women go days without having to CONSTANTLY re-moisturize their luscious locks.

L.O.C. is an abbreviation for leave-in conditioner, oil and cream. The name itself tells us naturals the types of hair products we should apply as well as the order to use them.

What makes the L.O.C. Method different from so many other moisturizing methods is the layering of products in a specific order to maximize moisture retention in your natural hair. The layer of hair-healin

g moisture is systematically locked in by two products which are both known to be excellent sealants: oil and hair butter.

Both oil and hairs butters are universally adored for their ability to create a moisture layer along your hair shaft that helps to prevent water from dissipating, in effect, helping the hair stay healthily moisturized for much longer.

By using oil first and then a heavier and thicker butter on top, you're making absolutely sure that as much moisture as possible remains on the hair shaft which is very beneficial for natural hair honeys who struggle to keep the needed moisture in their hair.

The method is so easy to blend into your routine because it involves some of the best-selling natural hair products on the market, products you probably already own,  so you just need to switch the order in which you apply them to your lusciousness. You'll be looking like a natural hair model in no time!

If you want to start using the L.O.C. Method then simply follow these easy steps below:

Directions

1. Apply a moisturizing water-based leave-in conditioner to cleansed hair.
2. Apply a thin layer of oil to your hair to help lock in the moisture.
3. Apply a butter-based, creamy moisturizer to your hair to seal that moisture in.

After that feel free to use your normal hair styling products to style your hair as normal.

Porosity

The L.O.C. Method will work best for Type 4 naturals because our hair is commonly very thirsty for moisture. BUT, also keep in mind that your hair porosity level will also determine whether the L.O.C. Method works for you or not.

If your hair is normal to high porosity then you should have no problem with layering products on your hair. However, if you have low porosity hair and try this method you risk of getting limp and oily hair that could be susceptible to a lot of product build up. Lastly, if you’re not a Type 4 natural but still struggle with moisture retention then give the L.O.C. Method a try – so many natural swear by it!

Alternatives

As with all things curly hair related it’s all about trial and error so if your current routine isn’t quite cutting it then give this method a try and modify it to suit your needs.

If your curls are easily weighed down, or if you suffer from product build up you can limit the number of products you apply to your hair by applying a creamy or buttery product as your styler.

Make sure you try it out for at least 2 weeks or three wash sessions before deciding if it works for your hair or not.

Wash and Go! Kinky Curly Curling Custard + Diffuser

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

Check out Ally's video demonstrating a cute Wash and Go using Kinky Curly Curling Custard and a diffuser.

She uses a unique blow dryer attachment called a diffuser that is used to spread the airflow across a large section of her natural hair.

It is mainly used for curly hair, because the air flow does not cause frizz or interfere with the curl pattern. A diffuser works well for wash and go hairstyles, as you can imagine many natural ladies don’t enjoy leaving the house with their soaking wet hair. Nobody is trying to go out and get sick just for trying to be cute! Haa...

And for most women when they wear a wash and go completely air drying is not an option, many times natural hair can and will take 24 hours or more to dry.

Try waking up with your hair matted to your head, because it was still wet from the day before and tell me how much you like it. I guarantee that it's absolutely no fun.

Check out her natural hairstyles video below as she breaks down her technique for you tutorial style. But before you do that do myself and yourself a big favor right now....

How to Wear the Puff Cuff on Thick or Fine Natural Hair

 

How many hair clamps has your curly hair broken? Well, no more! Finally, there’s a hair clamp that can handle the challenge of thick, textured hair. Meet the Puff Cuff, a “remix” of the banana clip, uniquely designed to hold and style even the thickest of thick hair!

The Puff Cuff’s unique teeth are designed to lock into the texture or curl of your hair and hold the clamp in place, NOT to glide through the hair like a comb or banana clip. While the concept may be similar to the old "banana clip,” the Puff Cuff functions differently by working with your hair instead of against it.
