The LOC Method: Everything You Need To Know

Hey there natural hair lovers! If there is something we all have in common, it’s wanting to make sure the moisture in our hair lasts through any conditions. Unless you prep your hair correctly, it is easy for moisture to escape our curls. That's where the LOC method comes in..

The LOC method for retaining moisture may be one of the most infamous hair moisture retention techniques. It consists of simple steps that can keep your curls hydrated for days: liquid, oil, and cream. Each step works together to provide the optimum level of happy hair.

This step is as simple as it sounds. Dry hair can be easily hydrated by adding either water or a water-based product to it. Our Nourishing Avocado Leave-in Conditioner is so water-based that water is first on its ingredient list! It is lightweight and adds the perfect amount of moisture to the hair.  


For this step, you are going to need a product that will seal in all that moisture. This is especially important during the brutal winter season since the cold winds can dry your strands out. Our Avocado Oil is the perfect lightweight oil to do the job. On the flip side, if your hair prefers something heavier, try our Jamaican Black Castor oil growth serum.   


Last, but not least, you will want to add a cream to help close that hair cuticle and lock in all the moisture you’ve just gained. For this step you can use any styler that your hair likes, but for added moisturization, use a styler that is water based- like our Avocado Curl Custard

    I believe this method is amazing! The only thing I would recommend would be switching the oil in Crete and making this a LCO method instead. The Lievan and cream work together to add all that moisture into the hair but the oil is the sealant that holds it all in. After trying both,I believe that the LCO method would work a lot better.
