LOC

LOC is a hair care method that stands for Liquid/Leave-In, Oil and Creme. I found it about a month ago, and I love it. I wet my hair (mostly after I condition it and rinse it), add leave-in conditioner (either Shea Mousiture: Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner or Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave-In Conditioner), oil (Coconut, Olive, Silk (Design Essentials), and Renewing Argon Oil of Morroco (OGX)), and creme (Cantu Coconut Curling Cream). I love these products due to their ability to keep my hair soft and moisturized. As far as conditioner goes, I’ve tried a new cowashing cleanser by Shea Mouisture, Coconut & Hibiscus Co-Wash Conditoning Cleanser, which has worked very well on my hair. It’s important to cowash because it allows your hair to keep its essential oils (which shampoo strips them of), so that it can grow healthily. The goal is healthy hair. Whether you want to grow it out, or cut it into a short style. People tend to forget that short hair is cute too. Short hair takes maintenance, just as longer hair does. You need to make sure that if your hair is short, you do get it cut regularly, and keep it in a style. Your hair doesn’t have to be long to be cute, it just needs to be styled. I’ve been recently trying to find more protective styles, so I’ve been perfecting my halo French braid (the picture below is a side picture from my snapchat (I was very proud)). I wanted to make sure I have a large variety of styles for school, since I’m currently wearing my hair curly. My favorite is French braids though, because they hold mouisture really well.  I actually French braid my hair different than most people, so if you’re interested in learning more, please comment and I’ll post a video later on.
