Blessings through Brokenness...

I’m angry. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m bitter. I’m ecstatic. I’m confused. I’m stable. I’m not going through postpartum.

Don’t you just love social media parents? Well in my case, the social media “baby daddy”. They do absolutely nothing for their child, but when that sporadic visit comes around,…

What is the LOC method?

yeahsexyweaves:

It’s a method used for layering on products in a specific order to retain moisture in the hair & seal it in so that your hair doesn’t dry out.

L stands for leave in conditioner- apply a moisturizing leave in conditioner.
O stands for oil- apply a thin layer of oil to seal & lock in the moisture
C stands for cream- apply a butter based creamy moisturizer too to your hair.

Now you know:-) there are examples if you search for loc method on the blog.

Ok so I'm a newly natural. I big chopped May 24 2014 and I'm 4a/b and currently I have some Senegalese twists installed and I was wondering if u could give me some tips on moisturizing, when to wash it, and frizz

yeahsexyweaves:

Hi & congrats on your natural hair journey.
Yes I can suggestions. Start from the bottom with your scalp, make sure it’s clean and oiled so that it does not dry out , cause flakiness & dandruff. So oil massage it with an oil of your choice like coconut,avocado, etc you can also use a dandruff spray or cream called sulfur.

For moisturizing, you could buy S-curl spray, it works just fine as a moisturizer. Buy the new version as it also contains argon oil for sealing in moisture.
For washing, it will come down to your lifestyle, if u are swimming a lot, then use a clarifying shampoo or add some baking soda to your regular shampoo to wash out the salt ( ocean ) or chlorine ( pool). Wash whenever you feel that your twists are dirty,weighed down or product build up.

Make a spritz of 1 part vegetable glycerine,2 parts aloe vera juice,3 parts water & 5 drops of tea tree oil. This recipe is loaded with a lot of moisturizing goodness, glycerine with pull more moisture from the air which will help u with frizz, aloe vera will balance your hairs ph so less frizz again & the tea tree oil will soothe your scalp from itchiness & dandruff which comes with protective styles.

With braids I usual focus more on moisturizing and oil massages. You can add in more products like oils if you want & can make your own measurements as desired. And spray as needed.
Hope this answered your question, enjoy your twists & have a great hair journey:)
