Welcome to our Second Natural Hair DIY Product Feature:
DIY One Step LOC Moisturizer Recipe for Natural Hair
L.O.C. means Liquid, Oil and Cream 😀
This shows the order of application of products to keep hair moisturised for longer. Moisturised hair equals softer hair, hair less prone to breakage, hair less prone to splits/knots and to put it simply, happy hair. Less breakage equals more length. So with the L.O.C. method, you first apply a liquid such as water, then seal in with any oil favored by your hair and then apply your hair cream/butter/pudding/styler.
For many naturals, this method helps retain moisture in the hair for up to two days after application. It’s really effective and you can tweak it by putting the hair cream after the water and sealing all with oil. The downside to this method is that it’s like so many steps and when you’re in a hurry, you won’t have the patience to spritz with water, seal with oil and layer the hair cream on top of that…..case study: ME!
My hair type is 4b/c, high porosity, fine stranded, medium density.
Everything seems to be against me in the moisture/length retention department. Add that to unwillingness to spend hours on my hair and you can see how I needed to find a solution fast!!! I got to the drawing board and tinkered with some of the hair products available and found a formula that combines the L.O.C. three step method in one easy step…..just apply to dry hair and ends. Period. Ready?! Here goes.
- Clean Water (I use bottled water)
- Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream
* I use a mix of coconut, olive and castor oil. You don’t really need a mix. One type of oil is sufficient. *
In about 100 ml of clean water in a bottle, I added 2 tbs of Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair cream and 1 tsp of oil and mixed thoroughly. It will form a lotion which you can dilute with more water until it’s a consistency you like. That’s it! Simply apply to hair, style and go. *Note: For hygienic reasons, please use up the mix in three days or less.
Live Beautifully. Naturally.
