O for Oil

Now that I’m out of the hair closet I can share all of the little things I do to keep my hair growing and healthy! I am currently living by the LOC method. This stands for Liquid, Oil and Conditioner. Here’s how it works. We naturals have our holy grail, and that is the spray bottle! Your spray bottle can have just water, or water mixed with your favourite conditioner. This is the liquid part, I spray my hair until its damp and evenly covered. Then I go in with the oil, this can be any oil but I have a set of oils I personally like to use. The next step is to condition. This can be a moisturiser, hair butter, leave in conditioner or just normal conditioner, whatever works best for your hair. This method locks in moisture leaving your hair healthy and smooth! 

Now onto the oils! I put my mixture of oils into a little dropper but a normal bottle will do just fine. My oils consist of:

Olive Oil: 

– Improves hair elasticity
