What is LOC method?
It is basically a product layering method of combining three different hair products with different formulations to moisturise your hair and make it soft and smooth. It includes treating your hair with a liquid, then applying oil and lastly using a cream product in your hair. These three steps of the LOC method helps moisturise your mane, fight frizz and knots, and lock in the moisture to keep your coiled curls smooth and gorgeous. It enhances the natural texture of your hair and makes it more manageable by eliminating frizz, roughness and knots and increasing the moisture retention in your hair.
Step 01: Liquid
In the first step of this hair care method, you need to apply any liquid-based leave-in product or simply wet your hair with water. This is to hydrate your hair and prep it for the following steps. Slightly dampen your hair and move on to the next step which is applying oil.
Step 02: Oil
Take any lightweight oil or hair serum and apply a dollop of it evenly through the length of your hair. It helps retain the moisture you applied in the first step. Water makes hair frizzy and rough but topping it off with oil seals in the moisture, nourishes hair and tames the shafts making it smoother.
Step 03: Cream
Finally, apply a cream-based hair product to make sure your mane doesn’t lose the moisture. The heavy and thick formula of the cream not only smoothens out rough hair shafts and leaves your hair visibly moisturised. You can use any styling cream or a cream-based leave-in conditioner to make your hair look moisturised, smooth and manageable.
