The Difference: LOC vs. LCO Method for Moisturized Curls
THE SECRET TO LONG-LASTING MOISTURIZED HAIR, IS ACTUALLY NOT A SECRET, IT'S SCIENCE.
Posed a question the other day about hair problems. The number one textured hair issue: DRY HAIR! In addition to this, many women expressed how they did not have enough time to dedicate to daily maintenance of their tresses.
So what is this routine Beyond The Curls loves? We stand by the L.O.C/L.C.O Method! The routine every curly girl struggling with dry, brittle, dehydrated and dull strands should know.
What sets the LOC method apart from other methods is the layering of products in a specific order to maximise moisture retention. Both oil and butter are praised for their ability to create a layer along the hair shaft that helps to prevent water from being evaporated and lost into the atmosphere, thus helping the hair to stay moisturized for as long as 2-3 days before reapplication is necessary.
The difference between the LOC method and the LCO method is simple and has to do with whether the oil or the butter comes first:
- LOC Method - To moisturize your hair, you would use a liquid-based product first, then an oil and finish with a cream/butter.
- LCO Method - To moisturize your hair, you would use a liquid-based product first, then a cream/butter and finish with an oil.
Simply try both orders to see what your hair prefers best!
