Another way to moisturise and seal our hair – The LCO Method
I have decided to create a Hair Epiphany segment on my blog which will come up once in a while so that I can share my new hair discoveries with everyone, which brings me to the L.C.O. Method.
I discovered the best way to moisturise my hair so that the moisture lasts a lot longer and my hair is smooth and flows nicely. The L.C.O. method is a variation of the L.O.C. (Liquid, Oil and Cream) method of moisturising the hair. Although the products I use have a part to play; I think the ultimate reason my hair remains well moisturised is down to this moisturising technique.
The following illustrates how to do the LCO Method:
1. I part my hair into four vertical sections
2. I take a liquidy moisturiser, my moisturiser of choice is usually my Wura’s Secret Hair Moisturiser and I moisturise each section of my hair.
3. After this is done I use a creamy moisturiser to seal in the moisture already applied as well as to add more moisture to my hair, I apply said moisturiser to those same four sections. My creamy moisturiser which actually doubles as a sealant is my Wura’s Secret Whipped Penetrating Conditioner. I sometimes alternate and use Hollywood Beauty Olive Crème.
4. Finally I seal with an oil; my oil of choice is usually Wura’s Secret Hair Growth Oil or other times I may use some olive oil.
I have noticed that since implementing this method of moisturising my hair; it stays moisturised for much longer and feels supple and soft. I would definitely recommend this method to anyone with dry hair who finds it difficult to retain moisture.
The LCO method in a nutshell is simple – a liquid moisturiser, a creamy moisturiser and then sealing with an oil. It is that easy.
Hope you try it out and it works for you. Kindly share how you ensure your hair stays moisturised.

Thanks for this post. Dryness is something I'm always dealing with. Please what other liquid moisturiser can one use and I'll also like to know if a mixture of whipped shea butter and some oil counts as a creamy moisturiser?
Thanks for passing on your hair knowledge its always helpful.
Thanks for your comment dear Kniphe. Other liquid moisturisers will include S Curl, Kids Organics Shea Butter Detangling Moisturizing Hair Lotion, Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Lotion (it is good but contains petrolatum). Yes a mixture of shea butter and oil will constitute a creamy moisturiser. As long as you have used a water based moisturiser first, you are good.
Ok, thanks. But even with all this my hair gets dry pretty fast. Do you know of anything else can I do to lock in the moisture?
When moisturising your hair try using this method and your hair should not get dry so fast. After sealing the hair for extra moisture you can cover your hair with a plastic cap for about an hour or overnight and let us see if your hair's moisture levels increase.
Thanks I'll try that. Shalom
You are welcome dear.
