LCO Method for transitioning hair

When you are transitioning your hair is sooo thirsty and needy. I find that the LCO method is my saving grace. I usually do it once a week or more when I have my hair out.

What is LCO

LCO is an acronym for Liquid Cream and Oil. So you will be using Water or Liquidy product as your L, Moisturizer or hair butter as your C and any oil as your O. This method can also be done as LOC loosely meaning Liquid, Oil and Cream. I however, prefer LCO.

How to do it.

  1. Part your hair into sections
  2. Spritz your L (this usually comes in a spray form due to its thin consistency) to each section
  3. Apply your C
  4. Seal your hair with your O
  5. For added value you can cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic bag so that your hair traps your body heat and infuses the moisture.

I would advice to this at night if you have a day job because it is always best to take your time when doing your hair and I also feel that the product gets to work over night. (it might be in the mind)

I will do a video when my hair is out of me doing the LCO, Until next time honeys 🙂

    I love the layering of moisturisers – my hair stays moisturised for a long time. I use the LCB method (liquid, cream, butter) – it works well for me.
