FALSE: There's basic science that tells us that layering liquid, oil, and cream in that order is incorrect. Instead, you should be applying L, C, and then O. Here's why:
Water, which is your L, is the most moisturizing thing you can ever put on your hair. Think about how great your hair looks fresh out of the shower or after a swim. But, by itself, it will soon evaporate and leave your hair dry. To retain the moisture, you have to layer other products on your hair, too.
Oil and water don't mix, however, so layering oil on your liquid will only seal the shaft, preventing the C, or cream, from penetrating the hair and working with the liquid to enhance moisture.
But, if you put a moisturizing cream on top of the water, and then apply oil on top of that, you'll allow ALL of the moisture to penetrate the hair, and the oil will seal it all in.
Oils are excellent, but they must be used in the correct order to achieve the results you are looking for. If you've been doing the LOC method and are still experiencing dry hair, this is probably why. You're doing the right things, but in the wrong order. The Naturalicious OooLaLocks Hair Care System (coily edition, wavy edition) numbers the products in steps. It makes it easy to know the exact order in which to complete your regimen.
