When asked about her go to hair products she said: “I cannot live without his Pure-Fro Moisture Spray ($26), it adds moisture to my hair, which loosens the curl or his Scalp Nourishment Braids and Locs Spray ($24). He also has this Mist-Nourishing Water ($18). One thing I’ve learned was the acronym LOC, and that’s basically the rule for how to treat my hair: liquid, oil, and then cream. It’s the idea that you wet your hair first, then you add oil so that it can trap the moisture in, then you put a moisturizer or a cream over it. And also, Shea butter, natural Shea butter — no perfumes, no bleaches — which doesn’t smell great at all, but it does wonders to my hair”.
