DIY Shea Whip w/ Video

Many new naturals have asked, what is the LOC Method?  And, how does it relate to my hair's moisture?

The LOC Method  is a way of keeping (or locking) the moisture into your hair.  LOC stands for liquid, oil, cream.  The most common way to LOC your hair is to begin with either wet hair (either spritzed or freshly washed) or a water based leave in conditioner, add a light oil, then finish with a heavy cream.  For some, this heavy cream is Shea Butter.  Shea Butter can be obtained online, at a health food store, or at a beauty supply store.

For maximum benefits, we have added several other oils as well as Aloe Vera Gel (for moisture and to PH Balance the hair) to create our Shea Whip.  This Shea Whip can be used for sealing the hair (or the C in the LOC method), twisting, bantu knots, deep conditioning, shine and smoothing.  Below, you will find out what ingredients go into our Shea Whip.  We will post more about the LOC method, as well how to deep condition and twist with this Shea Whip in post to come.  As always, you will be able to see how to do this if you are transitioning or if you are big chopped.
