My Own Version Of Maximum Hydration (LOC Method Twice A Day)

Okay I saw online some naturals doing something called maximum hydration.  I decided right away that I couldn't do the whole process so I made up my own method.  I kept the main part of the process co-washing my hair twice a day and I used Herbal Essence Cleansing Conditioner.   I mixed silk protein with Mane 'n Tail and used it as my leave-in conditioner.  I made my own DIY gel and used Shea butter to seal in the moisture.  So basically I did the LOC Method twice a day.  To get the real Maximum Hydration Method just click.  Check out my results below.

Day 1
Okay I started late yesterday afternoon so I only detangled/washed my hair once. This is after first detangle we will see if it changes at all. My goal is to have tangle free hair with less shrinkage and less frizz (optional). 

Day 2
This was my first full day doing my version of maximum hydration. This was my second wash of the day.  Since I am not going out I skipped the gel part and only did my Mane N Tail/silk protein mix as a leave-in.  I used a spray on oil to seal my hair. Detangling my hair 3x in less than 36 hours has made a difference. It is my hope to change my hair's tangle patterns. Right now my hair is used to being tangled and goes right back to the tangle pattern even after I detangle it. I think that hydrating my hair will change this outcome but also detangling my hair twice a day and braiding it at night will give my hair the new "habit" of staying detangled.  

By Day 3 I was tired

3 days after last Hydration day (day 10)

I must say I liked what I used in my hair today.
L'ORÉAL Smooth Intense Polishing Conditioner and Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream really works on natural hair.


I love her.  I love her hair and her style and she can keep you from losing your hair.  Finger detangling is the best way and sometimes the only way.
