There are so many different hair care products on the market, we realize you may be at a bit of a loss to know where to start. If you have naturally curly, frizzy hair you know that your hair tends to be and show dryness a lot easier than other hair types. That is, until you begin to adapt a layering technique with the right hair care products. Experts suggest that those with naturally curly, frizzy hair should adapt the use of leave-in conditioners, oils, and creams in layering form to really help lock in the moisture for your hair.
When you have hair that’s frizzy, it tends to need more moisture in different forms. Different types of moisturizing products can help target and lock in moisture in different ways. This method is actually referred to as the LOC method according to some beauty experts. Let’s break it down a bit:
Leave-in conditioning products are the products you want to apply right after you’ve thoroughly cleansed and washed your hair. By applying a leave-in conditioner to your hair right after washing it, it helps to lock in the moisture to your hair and give some great moisturizing benefits to hair that’s freshly clean. This is the step that’s helping to really ADD more moisture to your hair.
After applying a leave-in conditioner it’s time to follow it up by applying a hair oil to your hair. Hair oils are incredible at locking in the moisture to hair. They’re gentle on the hair, and since you’ve already applied a leave in conditioning product you’re helping to seal the moisturizing benefits of the conditioner with the application of the hair oil. You need very little oil to get the benefits of applying it to your hair. Once you’ve applied the oil, the last step in this process is to apply a cream product to your hair. Cream moisturizing products are, well…creamy. The different texture of the product helps to really seal in all the moisture you’ve just added with the other products to your hair. In addition, many experts suggest that creams help to give your curls a little more shape to them.
Sounds like a lot right? Using this three step moisturizing method is something that can be a game changer to the ladies with naturally curly, frizzy hair to keep the shape and health of your hair.
