Curly Like Me for 4C

I am trying a new method for curly hair y'all. I don't know how I will like it because so far, it is not so good!! I checked out this book called "Curly Like Me" by Teri LaFlesh. She shares her life/hair story in the book, throws in some pics, and lastly, gives instruction for shampooing, conditioning, and styling curly hair.

Week 1

Used TresEmme Moisture Rich condtioner as my leave-in/styler. Did not like the white residue after hair dried, however, I did like the way my hair felt and looked during the drying process. Not really patient enough to "doodle" my hair and I could use less conditioner next time.

I don't feel this method is for me. It required a lot of product, a lot of time in the shower and a lot of manipulation. This is obviously a method for looser curled girls, I mean, look at the cover of her book, that alone should have made me change my mind. I also have low po hair and should have known all that conditioner I had to use would not soak in.  I have type 4 hair and don't have the time to doodle or shingle my hair, twists are my best friend. It also took my hair a long time to dry and 2nd day hair is impossible for me. On to the next........

Have you tried this method? What are your thoughts??
