Since the Max Hydration Method rose to popularity in the summer of 2014, many people have been wanting to jump on the bandwagon--even those who do not have the low porosity hair that the regimen is aimed toward. You know the hype is real when people outside of a target audience become interested. Here is how you can do the Max Hydration Method for high porosity hair.
Step 1: Opt for the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) rinse option
The issue with Low Porosity (LoPo) hair is that the cuticle layers lay so flat that it is difficult for moisture to enter the hair strand. If you have high porosity hair, you don't have this problem. The baking soda in step 1 acts to raise the cuticle so opt for the cuticle closing ACV rinse or skip a rinse all together.
Step 2: Deep Condition
Whether your hair is low or high porosity, you can always benefit from a deep condition. You will not need to be as restrictive about conditioner ingredients as the Max Hydration Method calls for you to be. Have a ball but natural is best!
Step 3: Clay Wash
Mix the clay with ACV or Aloe Vera Gel (AVG) in this step to bring the pH of the mixture down so that it acts to smooth the cuticle layer.
Step 4: Style
In this final step, opt for a gel that contains aloe vera like *Kinky-Curly Curling Custard or *Wetline Xtreme so that it helps to lay the cuticle down.
