MOVE OVER MOISTURIZING/SEALING, ENTER THE LOC EASE METHOD!!

Hiya,
The weekend is here in a flash! Wow! I was browsing through different hair blogs over the week and came across a very interesting, informative blog that has had me hooked all week. It's called curlynikki.com and is run by an African American lady called Nikki with beautiful natural hair, she also has ladies with natural hair that often contribute to her blog and one particular post caught my eye the other day.

Basically the post talked about a new method of ensuring your hair is well moisturized and the moisture sealed in for longer than the regular moisturizing and sealing I have been doing. This method is called the LOC EASE METHOD.
LOC stands for Liquid, Oil and Cream; these are the products you will put in your hair in their appropriate sequence
EASE stands for Edges, All over, Sections and Ends; listing the sequence in which the products are applied to the hair.
 The lady went ahead to post a picture of her hair before and after using this method and I must say, the difference was clear! So I decided to try it and to be honest I didn't need much convincing as it makes sense, sometimes we moisturize and seal our hair without focusing on vital, sensitive parts and they remain neglected and before long become problem areas.

Okay let me elaborate a bit more on this method;
L- First you use a liquid based hair product, my liquid of choice was my Glycerin/Water mix in a spray bottle, your's could be leave in conditioner.

You then spray the liquid on your EDGES;
THEN I MASSAGED

Then ALL OVER your hair;

Then you SECTION your hair and spray;

Finally you focus on your ENDS;

Repeat these steps using OIL; this time I used some Indian oil, any natural oil is fine too

After using the oil, repeat the steps using hair CREAM; I used what I have been using since my going natural declaration- my Whipped Shea butter but you can use any good moisturizing hair lotion;

And its that simple! Combing my hair was a breeze! My hair truly felt moisturized  albeit too moisturized but I'm guessing that's what makes it a winning formula because the moisture will not vanish so quickly but will stay locked in and we know that's especially important in this part of the world. Also she noted that she did not do this method daily and that's why I like it, that daily moisturizing was doing my head in, so if I can do this at the beginning of the week, once mid week, say Wednesday and then on Sunday the beginning of the next week and my hair still stays moisturized, that will be super! Anyways this is how my hair looked at the end;
Not bad at all!! Will keep you posted on how this method works out in the long run. You can also try it out and let me know how your hair reacts to it plus if you have any hair practices that have worked for you don't keep it to yourself, let us all know oh, see how I am always coming here to spill all my hair finds :) Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi. Your blog came up when i did a google search for protective styles and i must commend you. It s absolutely fabulous and informative! Love the way you put up step by step pics of whatever you re doing, and also, that most of the products you use are things we can find around. Needless to say, i m gonna start following you. I m still new to the world of healthy hair care journey and still trying to get a hang of it but i know i ll get there someday. I' d like to ask about the type of glycerin you use. Is it those types made in Cameroun (which is what i have) or the vegetable type? (will be glad if you put up a pic). For the dudu-osun, do you use the bar on your hair that way, or, do you disslove it before use? Thanks for the reply in advance. I' m going back to finish reading your blogposts. Lols.did i also mention i m sooo jealous of your hair?? Lols.

    1. Hi, I'm beaming from ear to ear right now because it's comments like this that keep me blogging, thanks so much! Now to your questions; I use the vegetable type glycerin, the only other type I know about is borax( the one used to clean baby's gums) don't use that type, any other type should be fine.
      As for the dudu-osun, I rub the bar directly on my scalp but dissolving it is another way to use it :)
