The LOC method is a sure-shot way to keep your hair hydrated and accelerate your natural hair growth. If you split open the term LOC, its letters mean the following:

L- Liquid

O- Oil

C- Cream

Herein, the liquid is applied to hydrate your hair, oil is applied to lock moisture in it, and cream is applied to avoid moisture loss. This method includes applying the liquid, oil, and cream in the exact order as in the term.

The amount of application of the products depends on the requirement of your hair. If your hair is very dry, then the amount applied will be more, and vice versa if your hair's a little bit dry.

Step 1: Apply a Water-Based Liquid

The first step is to incorporate the ‘L’ part of the method. Herein, you must apply a liquid to introduce moisture into the hair. This moisture will be sealed in the later steps. All you gotta do is apply a suitable liquid to your hair for the same.

Many black women use liquids as simple as water to do so. If you want to go for something else, you can opt for lightweight leave-in conditioners that are water-based.

Step 2: Apply Oil To Seal Moisture

The next step is to apply the ‘O’ part of the method. Here, O stands for Oil. Applying oil to your hair helps lock in the moisture introduced with the first step. Apply a small amount of oil to lock in the moisture.

There are many oils that you can use in this method. The only deciding factor is your hair porosity. You can opt for olive oil and jojoba oil. If you want to go for heavier oils, you can go for coconut oil or castor oil. This French Argan oil has proven to be effective in the method, as it is light on the hair and keeps your hair hydrated from roots to tips.

Step 3: Apply Cream For Multiple Purposes

Applying cream is the last step in the LOC hair method. It can be either gel or cream, or even butter. Before the application, you need to make sure that the cream does not weigh your hair down. You can also apply styling creams and gels for this method.

Accelerate Growth In Thin Hair With LOC Method

Every woman has a different hair type. While some may have thick curly hair, others may have thin, loose wave hair. Many black women have always been worried about the thickness of their hair. Despite certain hair care routines, many women are unable to see much difference in the volume.

The LOC method was made to evade hair problems related to dryness and frizziness. If you want hydrated and lively hair, opt for this method. If you apply the right products in this method, they can actually help hair growth! So here’s how we can accelerate hair growth effectively in thin hair using the LOC method:

 

  • The one thing you should not use on your thin hair is any heavy-weight liquid. Using a leave-in conditioner that does not weigh down your hair can give you the best results. Use Indique’s Bamboo and Silk HCO Leave-In Conditioner for the best results. This is the best product to date. It is light on the hair and keeps it moisturized.

 

This leave-in conditioner will make you carefree when it comes to hair loss or tangling. You may also use Indique’s Coconut and Monoi Water Curl Refresher. If you want to go for an even lighter liquid, then this is the best choice.

 

  • Once you have applied the liquid, it is time to apply oil to lock in the moisture. You can opt for coconut oil, as it smoothly helps in keeping the hair moisturized from roots to tips. Opt for Indique’s Hair Care Essentials French Argan Oil if you want to go for a lightweight that works effectively without weighing your hair down.

 

If you are on a budget or want to go for heavy oils, you can opt for castor oil, but it is recommended to use lightweight oils as the heavy ones can weigh thin hair down, resulting in ineffective growth.

 

  • As for the cream for LOC method, you can go for both cream and gel. Opt for Indique’s Coconut and Monoi Curl Defining gel, as it is light on your hair, and it has worked well in delivering the results.

 

You can also go for butter as it is a better option than creams. Opt for shea butter or cocoa butter. It leaves the hair soft and hydrated. Apply a moderate amount of the butter as you do not want to weigh down your thin hair.

 

  • Using hair extensions has proven to be a blessing in addition to the LOC method. After completing your LOC routine, wear human hair extensions that help keep natural hair moisturized and safeguard it from any dust or damaging elements in the air.

Conclusion

  • Many hair brands offer you hair extensions, but not all suit your hair, blend well with it, or last long. Herein, Indique’s virgin human hair extensions are the best match as they are light on natural hair and help bring the best out of the LOC method.
