I tried the LOC method and it turns out I was able to rock a wash and go for five days! Yes, I said five days! In my excitement I did not take any pictures; I was too happy every morning when I "unplopped" my hair and my curls were still moisturized and defined!
Here's what I did after washing and conditioning my hair to achieve these results...
Before leaving the shower I applied my oil mix to my hair in four sections and bantu knotted each section. My oil mix is equal parts olive and jojoba oil then a half part JBCO.
Once out of the shower I applied leave-in conditioner to each section and detangled.
Then I did my "Wash and Go Cheat" and made 10 large twists using flaxseed gel on each twist.
The next day I had amazing moisturized and defined hair. I plopped at night using a satin/silk scarf and my curls were maintained for five days!
I currently have box braids that I did myself for the first time ever! Check them out!
I will do the "Five day wash and go" when I take these down in few weeks and then document with pictures.
Thanks for reading!
