So we're smack dab in the middle of one of the hottest, sweatiest, muggiest summer seasons yet, I've put away certain brands (for now) and keep these moisturizing, slippery, extra-hydrating hair goodies nearby. It's important that I do all I can to help the elements work with--not against--my medium-length, full, curly mane.
For that reason, I practice the LCO method (liquid, cream, oil) in the summertime, and leave the LOC method for colder seasons. That way, the oil has a better chance of penetrating my hair, reducing frizz caused by summer humidity.
Begin on freshly cleansed and conditioned hair that is soaking wet. Since I wash my hair in about 4 sections, they are still separated when I get out of the shower, which makes it easier for me to apply product.
I completely saturate it (what's a dime-sized amount?) with product--you could package a leave-in as a moisturizer and honestly, my hair wouldn't know the difference. I especially enjoy the results of these:
- Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Leave-In
- Blended Beauty Curl Styling Butter
- Jane Carter Solution Nourishing Cream
Have you tried the LCO method? Does it work for your hair?
