Look at this post. It details the maximum hydration method. Piling on a bunch of silicones and proteins is not going to give her moisture, therefore it won't solve the issue here. The issue here is not sealing, it's getting moisture into the strand, and i can bet money if your toddler's hair is not relaxed, it is not high porosity.http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/the-max-hydration-methodfrom-my-other-post_topic368937.html
High porous hair is porous due to some sort of damage. This can be heat damage, chemical processing, and permanent dyes. to know your daughter's porosity, see this post.http://www.curlynikki.com/2011/08/how-to-find-your-hair-porosity-and.html
For hair porosity, you want to feel your hair while it is wet, and the technique is the same for all hair types.
Max hydrated low porous 4c and 4b hair, from being treated the way it wants
- Squeeze or blot excess moisture from your hair so that it is not dripping, but leave it as wet as possible.
- If it feels rough or has a “straw-like” texture, your hair is not very porous.
- If your hair simply feels wet, you have normal hair porosity.
- If your hair has high porosity, it will feel sticky, almost as if you had not washed all product out of your hair.
4c and 4b low porous hair with use of silicones and protein
These are all pictures of my hair. I have mostly 4c hair with some 4b in the front adnd some 4a at the nape. More photos and testimony in max hydration method post. The photos and results speak for themselves. Low porosity hair does not want protein and silicones.
