L.O.C. Method

I'm sure you have heard of this method going around the natural community.  Its been out for awhile though but it may be new to some of you all so I thought I would share. The basis is you use a liquid to moisturize, a oil to seal the moisture in from the liquid and then a cream to seal the moisture in for the oil.  For some of you that might be a lot of product but what I have found is when they say a little they really mean a little is all you need.

I have only used this method on dry hair and not freshly washed *

I don't have any problems keeping moisture in my hair but this method is great for a lazy winter styler like myself.  I have tried it out on my wash n gos to stretch the days before washing and it works great.  I recently tried it out with an unusual combination of products.

I used Qhemet Biologics Moringa Tree Conditioning Ghee as my liquid , Qhemet Biologics Aethiopika Hydrate & Twist Butter as my oil, and Reve Essentials Hair & Body Moisturizing Creme as my cream. I say unusual because the Moringa Tree is a multipurpose item and the Twist butter emulsifies down into an oil, it doesn't start that way.

I had prior to using the items a shrunk TWA, not only did the Moringa Tree conditioning ghee moisturize my hair , it detangled it beautifully.

I don't really have any hold, as seen in the picture above, but my hair is soft and fluffy. There is a little sheen to my hands when I touch my hair but it isn't overly greasy at all.

I don't understand the point of using the cream last. After you seal in the moisture with the oil, doesn't that create a barrier on top of the hair? What purpose does the cream serve?

The cream seals in ALL the moisture, sometimes using an liquid based moisturizer and then an oil doesnt do it for me, but I find by adding the cream then my hair stays EXTRA moist
