Is This The Secret To Manageable Hair?

Is This The Secret To Manageable Hair? | Textured Hair | Scoop.it
If your curls absorb more water than a Sham Wow towel, yet they're forever crying out for more moisture, then it may just be time to try out the LOC method. It's been abuzz on the natural hair forums for its ability to let curly-haired ladies go days without having to re-moisturize their curls.
Kinks & Curls's insight:

The LOC method is nothing new but I will admit that the "L" for me has always represented liquid namely water. But if your not getting the sustained moisture you seek for your hair you may want to try using a replacing that "L" with leave-in conditioner. One way I do that is by mixing it all together and applying it all at once.

Kinks & Curls's insight:

I wore lacefront wigs to get me through the rougher phases of transitioning to natural hair but I never used glue or tape. The bands and combs kept it securely on my head. To leave a wig on your head for days at a time is a whole other issue entirely. To her credit it's very brave to come out a speak out about the dangers of using adhesives repeatedly to keep your wig on. Kudos Countess!

But comparing a grown African American woman to Star Wars' mean-mugged Chewbacca is near-racist.
Kinks & Curls's insight:

Pam Oliver's critics know this is nothing new. But let's look at some other reasons why Pam's hair looks the way it does.

 

1. She travels a lot.

2. She is constantly in the elements on the sidelines (hard to keep your hair in place)

3. I can't think of a third reason but hey these two are valid.

Kinks & Curls's insight:

The front of my hair is 4c the crown is is more of a 4b and the back is 3c so I treat my whole head as if it's 4c. The limitation of my hair is I just can't  style it wet. I need time to have product fully absorb into my hair so styling on the fly can be tricky, thick creams are a no-go and wash and go's are not an option. Natural hair can be very versatile but everything has it's limit. What are the limitations of your natural hair?

How many of you use the pre-poo process as a deep conditioner instead of the more traditionally known process of deep conditioning after the wash? There are times I do that when I just don't feel like sitting under the dryer and when my hair was just too soft and over moisturized to hold a definition in a twist out. How about you?
