Success with Tightly Curly Method?

Hi Everyone,

My darling beautiful! daughter is I think a (4a) and I am trying the tightly curly method on her tonight. I primed her head and now have in 4 braids...will let her sleep like that tonite with a silk bonnet.

Has anyone been successful with their little ones and this method?

Her hair shrinks up alot!

I have also tried KCKT and KCCC on her and it looked really healthy and shiny but a lottttttttttttttt of shrinkage! (see attachment) I have to say I really love the slip of KCKT, that will definitely be a staple in our hair product routine!

TIA

Sorry, Hope that helps!

She is a doll! And she has beautiful hair.

I use the tightly curly method on both of my kids. My DD's hair is in my avi. I love it for my basic method of caring for their hair, though I may add in other things during the week depending on how I am fixing my DD's hair.

I've also found with my son that using either a little gel or curl creme when I do the twirls helps them hold a little longer.

Also, I had to play around with it before I really got the results I wanted and realized when she describes using A LOT of conditioner - she means A LOT. I was scared to use that much at first, but put it in there until it foams - like she describes. I put a lot in just in my DS's little head of hair, but their hair soaks ups the moisture - so the more, the better.

DD (6 yo): 3c (tightly-curly girl) - now loving KCCC for her!

They are too cute! I am sure my husband will be eventually cutting our son's hair too so I'm trying to enjoy his curls while I have control. LOL

I keep telling him that his hair hasn't fully grown in yet - so he won't be tempted to cut it.

Too funny! My husband gave my son his first low cut at 9 months!
I was mortified!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He had some big curls, but it was all uneven....I was so sad, when he cut it off...

Now he's 4 and NOW I have to get on my husband to keep him cut and edged. Now I'm spoiled, I'm not ready to have to take care of his curls...

I bought some of the combing conditioners this weekend so I'll try it with my daughter over the weekend as we're going to the beach and I always put conditioner in her hair and mine when we go to the beach.

I was hoping to get the Giovanni but I haven't found the one she listed here (I live in Barbados). I bought the Hello Hydration and Break's Over. I'm going to check some health stores to see if I get lucky with the Giovanni. My daughter is only 17 1/2 months so I'm not keen to try the scented products for any extended period of time.

You all have beautiful children.

I don't have kids, and my hair is probably much thicker than your daughter's. However, Teri's method works wonderfully for me. Unlike Teri, I prefer to stay away from silicones. (I currently use Renpure to cowash / detangle and Tresemme Naturals as a leave-in.) I also add a little bit of gel (Biotera) mixed with a few drops of coconut oil. (You may not need this for your daughter.) Although, I prefer to detangle in the shower with a Mebco wide-toothed comb, the twirling and smoothing method is what really does the trick for my frizz-prone curls.

Your kids are absolutely adorable! I have a 4 year old myself, and a 5 year old boy who's hair is very curly.

When I first started reading online about how to take care of my dd's hair with 3c, 4a hair, tightlycurly website is the first that I came across. I tried it the following day with just conditioner, which I must say was mind-boggling, but I tried it anyway. I was like "just conditioner? Don't wash it out?" But to my surprise, she was able to wear her hair out for the first time ever, although her hair shrunk up to her ears. It lasted for a long time and stayed shiny for about 5 days. I used L'oreal Nutri-Gloss for long dull hair or something because that was the only one I had on hand and used for myself.
I haven't tried it with hello hydration though.
Oh one more thing, I applied the conditioner in the tub, and to each section. The sections were only a dime size and if it was any bigger than that, than the curl will not stay. Start twisting the hair at the scalp and keep turning until the ends.

hope this helps

Me and my 4 year old are both using the tightly curly method but we have 3C hair. As someone previously stated you need lots of conditioner. I think it works great on both of our hair. I also mix a littel EVCO in my conditioner to make it a little more moisterizing. Also I clip my daughter hair up using a single prong hair clip at night and she sleeps in a satin cap which helps preserve her curls

Good luck!
