This year I tried to experiment with the LOC method, which means liquid, oil, and conditioner. This method helps to lock in the moisture that was built into the shaft of the hair during the shampoo/conditioning or daily misting process. I tried it but my hair didn't maintain the moisture like it did when I tried my old faithful process.
My normal process is to apply water/aloe vera to my hair after the shampooing/conditioning process then a light leave-in conditioner or a thick butter like Mowrah or Avocado. After I apply one of those I then apply an oil of choice. My current oils of choice are almond, grape seed, or castor oil. I will also dip or saturate my ends during this final process to help ensure my ends are completely covered/sealed during this last step. I found that this helps to keep the split ends at bay. I braid or twist my hair as normal then let it air dry.
L: LIQUID OF CHOICE
C: LEAVE IN CONDITIONER or BUTTER of CHOICE
O: OIL OF CHOICE
SO WHAT SEALING METHOD ARE YOU USING? DID THE LOC METHOD WORK FOR YOU?
