The main concern when caring for your afro is keeping it hydrated. Dry hair leads to breakage and natural hair is especially prone to dryness. Follow the LOC system daily or a few times a week for best results:
LOC stands for Liquid, Oil and Cream.
Liquid: the best liquid for your afro is plain water. Pour some in a spritz bottle and spray your hair with a soft mist of water to moisturise it.
Oil: follow the mist of water with a dab of oil. Natural oils like pure olive, avocado or coconut oils are best (yes, the type you buy at the grocery shop). Pour a teaspoon’s worth into your hands and dab it onto your damp hair.
Cream: the next step is to lock that moisture in with a cream. The best creams are not heavy, but moisturising such as Curl Care By Dr. Miracles Soft Hold Creme, Organic Root Stimulator HAIRepair Intense Moisture Creme, JO’M Moisturiser Cream or Mizani True Textures Perfect Curl.
