Holding moisture in curly hair is one of the biggest strategies to keeping it healthy.
One method that is pretty popular, and for a good reason, is the LOC/LCO Method. In this weekly post I will be sharing what this method is and what products we use.
LOC / LCO Method How-To
What is the LOC/LCO Method? It basically it is the order of steps you take in applying different products to seal moisture into the curls/hair.
L – Stands for Liquid/Leave-In
C – Stands for Crème
O – Stand for Oil
Some people prefer following the LOC method but we prefer the LCO order. For our steps we have a few products that we love and that we have been using lately, and are our go-to when we aren’t trying new products out.
This post may contain affiliate links but opinions are all my own.
Our go to L : Liquid/Leave-In depends on if we are doing this after wash-day or to refresh. After bath time we use the water (of course) and then Many Ethnicities Kids Leave-In Conditioner. If we are refreshing we use Bonsai Kids Curl Revival Spray and then the Many Ethnicities Leave-In.
For our C : Crème we have been using the Cantu Kids Curling Crème for my kids lately.
Our O : Oil has basically been the same for about a year now. Its the Righteous Roots Pre-Poo Oil. It is labelled as a Pre-Poo oil but it also works great as the O in the LOC / LCO Method.
So that is the method and our go-to’s. Keep in mind what works for us may not work for you. Multiracial hair care has a lot of trial and error to it to find what products work well. Then guess what? After a while the hair can also decide randomly one day to not like those products anymore! Lol. There are a ton of options for each of these steps available and to make it a bit easier, here is a list of the Top Rated Hair Oils on Amazon.
What are your favorite products to use for the LOC/LCO Method? Let me know below!
