Some people see more moisture retention with the LOC method, others with the LCO method.
L stands for liquid - this can either be just water, hydrosol or water that has been "fortified" with herbs and extracts that are believed to be good for hair.
O stands for oil - any vegetable butter or oils should do. I use Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator. See my free whipped butters course if you want to make your own.
C stands for cream - creamy vegetable butter-based hair moisturisers or leave-in conditioners are ideal here. If you have thin hair just use a small amount.
- You start with the 'Liquid', follow with the 'Oil' and finish with the 'Cream'.
- You start with the 'Liquid', follow with the 'Cream' and finish with the 'Oil'.
Try both methods a few times to see what works best for you. Some people actually use one method on half of their head and the other method on the second half to test it out properly. The problem then becomes remembering which half got which treatment!
Remember, more moisture retention means your hair doesn't get dry and brittle. If your hair is not dry and brittle it is much less likely to break and you will retain more length. Simples :)
