Make the L.O.C Method Work For You!

The L.O.C method stands for Leave in, Oil, and Cream in this order.  What they don’t tell you about this method is that the most important ingredient is water.  Please do not try this method or any variations on dry hair.  You should do this on wet hair.

What do they each do? 
Leave-in Conditioner: Helps moisturize and makes it easier to detangle.
Oil: Seals in the water to prevent dryness in the long run.
Cream/Gel:  Helps define your texture.  Also good for frizz control.  If you are looking to style your hair, I would also suggest using a cream or gel.

Ask yourself – what are you looking for?
Big Hair
If you want big hair, I would suggest just sticking to a leave in conditioner.  I would skip the O(il) and C(ream) steps all together.

Tamed Hair
Throw in the oil if you want your hair tamed.  This will create a mixture of big and defined.

Defined Hair
Follow the steps all the way through starting with the leave in and working your way to the cream or gel.

What products should you use?
Unfortunately, I cannot provide you a list of specific products that will work for you.  This is where the trial and error process occurs.  The only advice I could give is to look at the thickness of your hair, not the texture (density versus pattern).  If your hair is thicker, I would suggest using heavier creams.  If your hair is thinner, I would suggest lightweight products.

I have been using the L.O.C method for years now and have seen nothing but positive results.  My hair has grown thick and shiny from using this method.  It also helps me narrow down what I buy and use. One thing I would suggest is to change your products one at a time.  Do not buy a new oil, leave in, and cream and then try them all at once.  You want to be able to identify what works and what doesn’t work for your hair.

  1. I love the loc method! My hair is always so moisturized. For my leave in i use hair one, I then use coconut/olive oil, and for my creams I put organic shea butter and then mix a curling souffle with a little bit of eco stylers. After that, I let the denman brush finish the magic!
