The L.O.C Method


As a new natural, I remember thinking that certain styles (twist-outs, wash and go's, cocoon curls) were off limits to me because of my hair texture and length. Fortunately for me, I got over that thinking and discovered the L.O.C method! My natural hair prayers have been answered with this method and now I'm crushing on my own hair!! :)

If you tend to have dry and tightly coiled hair, twist outs can come out limp, dull, and with little definition. I struggled with this after too many failed twist out and just when I was about to give up on ever achieving the perfect twist-out, I realized that maybe the lack of moisture and not my hair, was the issue.

THE L.O.C METHOD

                                                

The L.O.C method requires you to use H2O or a water based leave-in conditioner, your favorite oils, and a cream product to create long lasting, luminous, moisturize curls with amazing definition. This method is perfect for twist-outs, flat twist-outs, bantu knot outs, braid-outs, etc... Read on to discover how it is done.

When using this method, I starting by sectioning my freshly washed and conditioned hair into 4 large workable sections. I took smaller sections (medium sized) of hair for twisting and saturated each section with my favorite leave-in conditioner, KBB's Sweet Ambrosia. I then applied a mixture of coconut and Castor oil to each section of hair to seal, and I finally ended with a mixture of flaxseed gel (less drying than the ecostyler gel) and the QP  Elasta Mango Butter on each section before twisting. As I twisted each section of my hair, I could already see and feel the difference, my twist were shiny, full, and easier to detangle.



The next morning, I took out my twist and realized that this was by far, the best twist out I have ever achieved!!! I'm in love with the method and all the extra moisture I'm adding to my hair has an added bonus, as it will contribute to my healthy hair growth.

  2. Your hair is really gorgeous and thick! Love the curl pattern! If you use the natural hair numbering system, what type do you think your hair is? (3A, 4B, 4C,etc.)

    1. Thanks Lakeisha!!! I honestly never paid much attention to the numbering system because my curl pattern varies so much... If I could guess I would say, I'm probably a 4a :)

      Thanks so much for reading!
