Using the L.O.C. Method is the best way for me to retain moisture and make my styles last longer. I recently found out that this method was created by Rochelle Graham, owner of Alikay Naturals and Be Fabulous Salon. I've tweaked this method just a little to fit my needs. I start with freshly shampooed and conditioned hair.
L-liquid or a leave in conditioner
I use water or whatever leave in conditioner I'm feeling at the moment.
Some oils I've used for this step are extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and my current favorite, Mint Almond Oil by Mielle Organics. Don't over do it with the oil. A little goes a long way.
C-cream (and/or gel)
I use either a premixed product with cream and gel, a creamy product with Eco Styler Olive Oil gel mixed then applied to my hair. The cream and gel mix locks in moisture and provides a little extra hold.
