The Best Moisturizers For Really Dry Natural Hair – LOC Method Friendly

Print Friendly Print Friendly

best moisturizers for dry natural hair Remember that LOC method post you all liked so much? Don’t even front, we know you liked that one!

Well no gift is complete without the fancy red bow on the top so in lieu of adding to that post we went ahead and developed a complete list of product suggestions that would make things a little easier for you if you want to start practicing this cool way of sealing your hair.

Note that everything on this list can be used on natural as well as relaxed hair so don’t skip over any of them because you fall into either category.

The LOC abbreviation means liquid, oil and cream and also relates to the order in which the products should be applied.

Having said that a lot of you said that you do LCO with success too.

It is almost impossible to list every product on the face of the earth or even to say for sure which the best moisturizers are so if you have some great products that we may have missed, go ahead and comment below so we can all benefit.

Anyway, on to the products now…here goes:

Liquid

liquid leave in moisturizers

Infusium 23 – The first ingredient is water which makes it perfect for the liquid category and it is a light weight old school conditioner that hydrates your strands right after washing your hair. If you use infusium 23 then you will just love it and it will always be in your arsenal. It is just one of those conditioners some of us have grown up with and just cannot bear to be parted from.

Giovanni Direct Leave-in Conditioner – It’s the best light weight leave in conditioner on the market and with the first ingredient being water it is perfect for your hair and perfect for the liquid category.

Roux 619 Leave in Moisturizing Treatment – Because of how great this product is for detangling, it is often recommended for women who are transitioning to natural hair long term. It is a bit on the pricey side but well worth it if you want to have something really good in your arsenal.

HomemadeAloe Vera Juice and water mix – This can be a 50/50 mix with half your spray bottle containing water, and the other half being AVJ. You can choose to add more aloe if you would like but whatever you decide Aloe Vera does not disappoint as one of the best liquid conditioners you can find in your cabinet.

    Hi! Thank you for this great article. I’ve read that there are 3 oils that penetrate the hair strand. Those oils are coconut oil, olive oil and avocado oil but you don’t mention avocado oil as one of them. Do you consider avocado oil as a sealant?

    Thank you for the post.
    I use a homemade cream that consists of shea butter, oils (olive coconuts and castor oils) and beeswax. Because I live in very dry country.
    I want to ask if Palmer s hair food are good to be used as cream.
    I read that I can mix water with my conditioner to have a leave-in conditioner that is used as liquid ib LOC method. Is this ok?

      I am not sure about the palmers, only because I’ve never seen or used the product, but again it really isn’t about brand but rather ingredients. So if palmers is creamy in consistent and the first ingredient is not water then it would work as your cream. Or if it isnt creamy but clearly not water based but more oil based then it can be used as the oil.

      I think it’s perfectly fine to mix conditioner with water to make a leave in, alot of women use certain conditioners in that manner, again it’s all about ingredients. I prefer to use a conditioner that has no cones in it as my leave in only because I don’t want to create buildup on my hair. It’s all about preference but if you want to make a leavein I think that’s fine…

    I want to try this method. I’ve been using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie,Hair milk, and Moisture spray. I also use ORS olive oil smooth-n-hold pudding. I wanted to know if loc method means using all those products at the same time? What about build up? Products clashing/clumping? Oil melting down your face and back? Scalp residue and hair follicle blockage? I also like having some hold, I don’t feel comfortable having my hair to wild at work.
