Many of us had been recommended to seal our hair with oil. However, this does not work for everyone. For instance, I have been sealing my hair with oil until October 2015. However, my curls were not as defined as I wanted them to be. Besides, the frizz was all over the place. Consequently, my washdays were not lasting very long.
Everyone is used to the LOC or LCO method, but did you hear about the LCJ method? LCJ stands for Leave-in – Cream – Jelly. The difference with the LOC and LCO method is, that our method does not consist of applying oil to the hair. So how does this work? This article will explain everything, I promise!
Step 1. Start with freshly washed and detangled hair.
After the washing and detangling process, you are ready to apply products to your hear.
Step 2. Apply the leave-in conditioner by executing the ‘Praying Hands’ method
Grab your favourite leave-in conditioner and finger comb your hair while applying the product. Start doing the ‘praying hands’ method after distributing the product over your hair. You will achieve extra definition by helping your curls clutter together.
