Who's tried the LOC method? & has it worked for you?

I started this method roughly two months ago. I was my hair once a week and then practise the LOC method once a week also. I've seen great results, I love it! Has anyone done this any longer and what did you think?

    Hi @callhersky : Welcome to nc.com. :) Cool that the LOC method is working for you. I have tried it, but I found it weight my hair down too much. I have low porosity fine hair which is finicky about taking product. However, I have thought about working with this technique again because I may have just used too much product. LC (or LG) does work for me, and I wonder if LOC would be a better option when temps/dews drop. However, we are having a mild winter this year where I live (thank goodness!) so I haven't had a change to try.

    I use it, and have for a couple of years. It works very well on my porous, fine textured hair. This has been a very cold, dry (very low dew points) Winter here, and it definitely helps keep my hair moisturized.

    hey, I did Leave-in + Oil for a long time but I found out that it finally works out better when I put leave in+oil+cream+ butter... my hair has a very har time keeping the moisture; You probably should try and see what your hair asks for :)

    i agree with @.coconut.   see what your hair asks for.   my gray/white hair demands the loc method.  i use butters (currently using jane carter nourish & shine, used to use spiral solutons emollience butter but she closed her business.  emollience was amazing!) after my leave in.  sometimes that is all i need.   other times i then use either a curl creme or a gel.   
    the loc method (butters) totallly changed my hair. it now can keep moisture in and avoid the cotton candy look.   

    again, it's what your hair needs, no hard and fast rules.

    It didn't work for me, my hair responds better to less product. The LOC method left my hair, neck and shoulders feeling coated.
