The Difference: LOC vs. LCO Method for Moisturised Curls

THE SECRET TO LONG-LASTING MOISTURISED HAIR, IS ACTUALLY NOT A SECRET, IT'S SCIENCE.

Did you know that Flora & Curl was born after our founder posed a question to the 3,600+ followers of her hair blog asking them their biggest hair concern was? The number one textured hair issue from 300+ responses: DRY HAIR! In addition to this, many women expressed how they did not have enough time to dedicate to daily maintenance of their tresses. 

So what is this routine Flora & Curl loves? We stand by the L.O.C/L.C.O Method! The routine every curly girl struggling with dry, brittle, dehydrated and dull strands should know. 

What sets the LOC method apart from other methods is the layering of products in a specific order to maximise moisture retention. Both oil and butter are praised for their ability to create a layer along the hair shaft that helps to prevent water from being evaporated and lost into the atmosphere, thus helping the hair to stay moisturised for as long as 2-3 days before reapplication is necessary.

The difference between the LOC method and the LCO method is simple and has to do with whether the oil or the butter comes first:

  • LOC Method -  To moisturise your hair, you would use a liquid-based product first, then an oil and finish with a cream/butter. 
  • LCO Method - To moisturise your hair, you would useliquid-based product first, then a cream/butter and finish with an oil.

Simply try both orders to see what your hair prefers best!

I really love the leavein. My hair feels so soft but i still have the volume. I love the mist. I love the oil. I am really in love with the smell of all products. I also recieved a mini butter. The first time i used it my hair looks very good. Second and third time it didnt. Maybe i buy it because the product gives a lot of volume and soft hair. I like that combo! Maybe i need to use less or a different way. I also like it because i dont need a gel on top.
The clay i only use it one time en the shampoo i didnt use yet. But so far i like the clay to.

The packaging is soooo cute.

Mystical Mist

The hair mist is one of the best products i have tried, it makes my hair moist and super soft in the mornings when it is dry from the whole night

I used this for my daughter's naturally curly hair, but also on my hair, which was chemically processed but now going back to my natural state. The product was immediately moisturising and hydrating, but without leaving a residue in the hair. Works well to protect the hair from heat styling as well, and smells wonderful.

So far so good. Used these products when i had my first curly cut. Purchased the travel bag to see if i liked them and i will be buying the full range when payday comes around. Love how easy the leave in conditioner is for my busy life.
