Ways to layer your hair products 

The steps taken towards layering your hair products can sometimes be determined by a number of factors such as your hair type,  texture, condition of the hair, the goal, as well as the styling you want to achieve. 

The L.O.C method is one of the most popular methods when it comes to product layering/application.

Steps to Effectively Doing the LOC Method

The LOC method simply means liquid, oil and cream process of layering hair products on your natural hair. With this method, the goal is to retain moisture, therefore, we advise doing a deep wash using a moisturizing shampoo. If you have product build-up, we also advice you use warm water alongside the moisturizing shampoo.

Step 1. After washing, apply a water based leave-in-conditioner to begin the moisture retention process. 

Step 2. There after, you can follow-up with a light weight oil filled with vitamins and plant oils. These oils acts as a sealant to lock in the moisture even further
