If your curls soak up enough water and conditioner but still feel as dry as a prickly dessert plant, then there’s a problem to address there sistah!
So you’ve tried every deep conditioner there is out there but still in vain. It means you need to switch up your hair care regime and about time you went in for the LOC method! This method is perfect for every curl girl out there – from 2a to 4c. Read on to know why this one’s a perfect match for your hair.
Why you should consider trying out the LOC method?
So your hair has high porosity, then the LOC method has your name written all over it! LOC stands for leave-In conditioner, oil and cream. It involves layering these products in the same sequence one after the other for healthy, well-nourished hair. Make sure you cleanse your hair well before starting. Try African Pride Black Castor Miracle Braid & Scalp Cleansing Rinse as it won’t strip your hair off its necessary moisture.
What is porosity, you ask? It is the ability of hair to absorb moisture. If your hair has gone through a number of chemical processes such as relaxation or hair colour, then it is likely that your hair porosity is high. If you have low porosity, there are chances that a full-fledged LOC method can weigh your hair down. To combat this, switch up the products. Read on to know how.
It’s all about trial and error. You need to understand and pin-point what works for you and what doesn’t work for you.
• If your hair doesn’t keep the moisture intact, try switching from a lighter oil to a heavier oil such as castor oil. We swear by African Pride Black Castor Miracle Hair & Scalp Sealing Oil.
• Pro tip: In case any of the products mentioned above are super heavy for your hair and is weighing it down, use the products in smaller amounts and but layer them well.
