L.O.C vs  L.C.O method. Which works better? How does it work? Well this is what this article is about. Here’s a little history about the subject in question:

The L.O.C method stands for “ Leave In, Oil, and Cream”. This method consists of moisturizing the hair with some type of water-based leave in conditioners, using oil to seal in the moisture and double sealing it with cream to close the hair cuticles and prevent moisture loss from happening.

The L.C.O method stands for “ Leave In, Cream, and Oil”. This method starts how the L.O.C method starts off except instead of applying oil first you would apply cream. How this works is you just apply any cream product of your choice and then use the oil last to seal in any moisture.

Now the question is: which one works better? Well neither really. Both promote moisture to your hair and are great methods, but it really all depends on how your hair works.

Here are a couple extra tips for this method:

  • Liquid/ Leave-In: You can use rose water or distilled water as a substitute since water is a great thing to use on natural hair.
  • Cream: Shea butter or any heavy butter
  • Oil: Coconut oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, castor oil, and a lot of other substitutes are great to use when moisturizing your hair using this technique.

Bought this bundle of products a few months ago, figured now is a good time to review since I've used each a few times.

I have type 4 hair (I'd categorize it as mostly 4b and 4c) and high porosity. I've been natural for 3 years, and I've noticed over time that my hair just has a really hard time retaining moisture. These products did an awesome job moisturizing my hair. Woke up with perfect juicy curls from my twist out.

Shout out to the knot tonic That stuff alone works wonders, super soft and makes detangling a breeze. But really I think the combination is what makes everything work.

I went on vacation and used the growth shampoo, real nice, not heavy and not to light. Made my hair soft and very clean, love the smell also. Can’t wait to use again.
