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!
