The LOC Method as you may have guessed from the infographic above, is a method used to promote maximum moisture retention by sealing in moisture twice! At least that’s the easiest way I can put it!!!
My initial worry was that this would result in super greasy and heavy hair but that has been far from the case. I can happily say I am a serious LOC Method Groupie! The steps are super simple and you can get away with using products you already have:
Moisturise your hair with a leave-in conditioner or moisturising leave-in spritz of some sort. I currently use either the Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner or the Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Restructurizer. You can even make your own D.I.Y leave-in spritz if you don’t already have one. An Aloe vera juice and water mix works perfectly for my younger sisters hair. The focus here is to use a product that has water as the main ingredient and that is relatively light.
Seal in the moisture from STEP ONE with a light oil. Rub a few drops [3 – 4 drops] of oil in palm of your hands and then apply this to your hair. I usually reach for either Argan, Almond or Grapeseed oil.
Seal in the moisture and oil from STEP ONE & TWO with a creamy moisturiser. This is where the magic happens and completes the process. I’m currently using KeraCare’s Buttercream for this step.
With this method I can actually get away with not moisturising and sealing for a good couple of days, which is a huge relief for me as a frequent traveller who cannot always justify packing one less item of work clothing in order to make space for hair care products!
I think it’s also worth mentioning that the alternative order method i.e LCO, Leave-in/Liquid , Oil and Cream also works a treat. In fact it’s pretty much the moisturise and seal method but with the extra step! I alternate between both variations just by chance and can definitely recommend you giving them a try!
Given this method a go?
