Hair jargon: LCO vs LOC method

First things first let's decode the abbreviations, the LCO method stands for Liquid, Cream and Oil whereas LOC is an abbreviation for Liquid, Oil and Cream. Both methods refer to the sequence you apply your hair products. This is done to A stretch and style your hair, B to increase moisture retention and C to increase or lead to hair growth.


So what's the difference?

1. Moisturize hair with water or water based leave-in conditioner.

2. Apply cream to seal in the moisture from the water or leave in conditioner .

3. Apply oil to seal in moisture from the cream.


LOC method
