Reeta's Organics LOC Method: Hair Care Routines For Curly Hair.

LOC Method and Hair Care Routines For Curly Hair.

Getting those gorgeous curls you dream of is something many natural hair enthusiasts strive for. Amidst various techniques, the LOC method stands out as a trusted routine in the curly hair community. Let's take a closer look at this routine, breaking it down into simple steps for mastering each stage.

What Is the LOC Method?

The LOC method focuses on three main products: Leave-in conditioner, Oil, and Cream. This routine is all about locking in moisture and defining your curls. Forget any confusion about "locs" - this method is simply about layering products to keep your curls hydrated and looking their best.

Step 1: Leave-in Conditioner:

The first step in the LOC method involves applying a leave-in conditioner or liquid. Choosing the right leave-in conditioner is crucial, depending on your curl pattern. Lighter-weight leave-ins are ideal for curls that tend to get weighed down easily, while denser and dryer hair benefits from a heavier, leave-in conditioner like our Moisture Rich Leave-in conditioner.

Step 2: Oil:

Selecting an oil based on your hair porosity is essential for the second step of the LOC method. Reeta's Organics 7 In 1 Oil Blend is Coconut oil-free but contains oils known to penetrate the hair shaft, while castor and jojoba oils work best for sealing. Thicker textures like 4C hair may benefit from both types, while low porosity hair requires a lighter oil for absorption.

Step 3: Cream:

The final step involves applying a cream to seal in the moisturizers and provide extra definition. The choice of cream depends on your hair texture, with heavier stylers like Healthy Hair Butter suitable for coarser textures and lighter options like Hair Milk Nourishing & Conditioning Styling Pudding ideal for wavy and fine textures. Reeta's Daily moisture cream is good for both.

Who Should Follow the LOC Method?

Can I use the LOC Hair Care Routine?

Understanding your hair porosity is crucial in determining whether the LOC method suits you. High porosity hair, which struggles to seal in moisture, finds the LOC method beneficial. However, low porosity hair can also participate with some adjustments to product application.

Can I Use the LOC Hair Care Routine every day?

While technically possible, performing the LOC method on wash day when starting with freshly washed hair is recommended to avoid product buildup. The method can also refresh and rehydrate curls between washes, using lighter product versions to prevent greasiness.

LOC Method Alternatives:

For those experiencing product buildup or seeking variations, alternatives like the LCO method (Leave-in, Cream, Oil) can be explored. Adjusting the order of product application or omitting one step can also cater to individual preferences and hair needs.
