Good things always come in threes! Your hair care routine is no exception.
If you're struggling to breathe life and moisture into your baby's coils, kinks & curls, then you absolutely have to try the LOC method. It's a simple, 3-step process that keeps natural hair well-moisturized, soft and manageable.
What's the LOC method?
Leave-in. Oil. Cream. The LOC method for curly hair is a simple process for parents that's easy to remember and easy to follow. Layering products in this order allows the hair to retain maximum moisture and that's what we want, right?
Step 1: Leave-In Conditioner
The first step to the end of your curl woes starts with a good leave-in conditioner. Prevent breakage, reduce frizz, and support healthy growth with a liquid leave-in that defines curls and makes them pop! Your favorite store (Hi, Target!) usually has some of the best options for any size budget. And they smell great, too!

Step 2: Oil
Next, apply a small amount of oil to the hair, making sure the moisture from your leave-in actually gets left in. The great thing about oil is that it's easily found, just go to the baking aisle of your local grocery store! The oils listed below are great for natural hair. Depending on porosity, you may have to play around and find one that works for you.
Step 3: Cream
The last step of the LOC method is extremely vital for hair with high porosity or hair that always feels dry. Apply a creamy moisturizer to the hair to seal in all the goodness before styling the hair as desired. Try one of the amazing products below.
