Polly’s Natural Curls: LOC method.
Over the past year and a half I have been working to get my hair in a wash-n-go state or at least to a place where I can achieve a great twist out. I have tried product after product and I have secretly become obsessed with hair products as a whole. From shampoo, conditioner, curl cream, oils, mask and edge control, whatever you can name hair related, I have it. Not to mention, bins full!
Don’t frizz up your little edges, I have decided not to buy any new hair products until I use most of what I have. I have even went through all of my bins last month and threw out any products that I have had over a year,I have downsized a great deal.With doing this, I have also decided to use little to NO heat on my hair, meaning all natural all year!
As I am normally wearing buns, braids or low ponytails, it was time to find a product that would moisturize my hair so it can be worn down more. I set out on this journey, while keeping my budget in mind, to find the best products for MY hair.
I recently found some products that have been working on my hair. I stopped into Wal-mart about two weeks ago and found these two products, Daily Defense and Finesse. I picked up these products for two reasons; One they were both reasonably priced and they both are paraben, sulfate and silicon free.
I found this to be a hit, I quickly went home to test the products and was wow’d at my hair.I decided to also use the LOC (Leave in, Oil, Cream) method to maintain the moisture.
This was my hair after a long week, work and working out leaves my hair in a wild mess by the weekend. It was clearly wash day and I was excited to wash my hair. I have listed the steps below.
Step by Step Instructions:
Step 1: Finger detangle hair.
Step 2: Wet & wash hair, using As I Am Coconut CoWash Cleansing Conditioner ( any co-wash will work, just make sure it is a cleansing co-wash.)
Step 4: Rinse and apply Finesse moisture conditioner and comb through hair using fingers or wide tooth comb.
Step 5: Apply Africa’s Best oil (olive or coconut oil works as well) throughout hair.
Step 6: Apply Organix Luxurious Moroccan argan Creme Sheer Opulence Masque through hair.
Step 7: Wrap in an old t-shirt to air dry and run some errands or read a book.
As you can see my hair was left moisturized and none of the products left any build up.Looking like I got a Jheri curl LOL. I recently used the LOC method to try my very first twist out as this process was very simple and I was very pleased with the results. Head over to my Youtube to check out the video.!
Be sure to give this a try, the products alone work very well and I only used the LOC method to ensure moisture throughout the next few days. Please feel free to share with me your results/methods on Twitter !
