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!

Shampoo and claywash are great!

I really like the clay wash and shampoo. The detangler and oil I'm less convinced on. The detangler only because it doesn't have a nice smell. The oil I'm not really sure what it's supposed to do, every time I've used it it's made my hair a bit greasy. But I love the clay wash, that is an amazing product and the shampoo has a great lather and lovely smell to it!

Hydrating hair mist!

This is the best hair refresher I have used! Super lightweight, non-greasy, and adds a lot of hydration to dry curls to bring the bounce back. I like to spray it in my hair before putting on my silk scarf before going to bed. A little more spray in the morning and my curls look great! It also smells heavenly! I will definitely be buying this again!

Good experience

very good: Detangler is good but the next day my hair is dehydrated. Shampoo (african) also dehydrates to some extent my hair.
