Kind of a two part question.

I'm thinking of experimenting with the LOC method but I've never used a cream in my routine. Can't find a single affordable cream in the drugstores to fit in the C spot that is CG and protein free.

Anyone protein sensitive use the LOC? and if so, what products do you use? I'm hoping for drugstore products for two reasons, cheap and easy to access. I can't waste tons of money and most products end up not working anyway. Thanks!

Low density, very coarse, high porosity
Collarbone length, gray dyed brown, dry and rough
Typical LEG routine could be any combination of:

Cowash: As I Am Coc Cowash

Enhancer: Camille Rose Curl Maker
Deep condition: SM Deep Treat Mask

    :smile: My quick suggestions would be:

    - Oyin Hair Dew
    - Shea Moisture Conditioner or Deep Treatment (the brown bottles)

    My hair is 4c dry, so only a small amount, section by section. When I just rub product in my hands and rub it all over my head = no-no. Has to be a small amount, section by section.

    When I couldn't take a lot of protein my hair benefited from those.

    Hmmm... just saw ur sig says your hair type is 2b so the Shea Moisture deep treatment may be too heavy for you... Oyin hair dew is cool but not in stores which sux!! Perhaps another suggestion will come along. :compress:

    I have been eyeing the oyin hair dew. I'm just not sure if it is formulated to enhance/encourage curl or if it just defines what curl is there.
