Liquid, oil, cream – in that order. The L.O.C. method keeps your hair moisturized, which means decreased damage, increased curl springiness, and a better feel and look for your curly hair. When you wash your hair, water opens up the hair cuticle, which allows the moisture to be deposited in your stands. The oil then penetrates the hair shaft for softer and shiner locks and the cream adds an additional layer of moisture to last until you wash your hair next.

Don’t attempt the L.O.C. method on unclean hair. Start by gently cleansing your hair with Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo a silicone-, sulfate-, and paraben-free shampoo infused with rich antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Seal in the moisture with Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Conditioner for smooth, conditioned and hydrated hair. These two products are formulated with Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Marula Oil to keep your curls and coils healthy, moisturized and defined. The L.O.C. method will only enhance their properties for softer and shinier locks.

After your hair is cleansed and conditioned, use a T-shirt or non-terrycloth towel to blot it dry (this will decrease friction and frizz). You’ve already completed the first step in the L.O.C. method—water is an essential element for hair health and growth. When your hair has the adequate amount of water it needs to flourish, it grows longer, has a beautiful and healthful shine, and has gravity-defying volume. If your hair is too dry before adding the oil of your choice, spritz your hair with water until it has a nice layer of moisture, then work in Mizani True Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion to activate your curl.

Oil acts as a sealant to lock in all that moisture you just placed on your hair. By coating with a quarter-sized amount of oil all over your hair, you are working to fix any curly hair problems, from frizz to split ends. When you have curly hair, you should be all about the oils because curly hair tends to lack hydration, unlike our straight-haired beauties. The lack of hydration causes unruly frizz, leading to dull and brittle hair, causing split ends and weaker strands.

Finally, a good cream moisturizes, defines, and holds yours curls for an extended amount of time, so you can enjoy your curls between wash days. By applying a curl cream at the end of the method, you are ensuring strength and control from the inside, out. Mizani True Textures Curl Defining Pudding is designed to fight frizz while giving your curly hair a happy bounce, leaving it soft to the touch without any crunch.
