PS: I was thinking of using something like kinky-curly, but am not sure if it would produce and effect like that on my hair texture.

    is your hair texture the same as hers? because if so it looks like a wash n go may get that result.

    If not, maybe a braidout with small braids to mimic the curl pattern?

    Can you post pics of your hair? I agree with Whimsy, that looks like a wash and go.

    I'm not sure what your hair is like, or the length of it, but I think I can acheive a similar look on my daughters hair by doing about 6 loose braids on damp hair, using your product of choice. I would probably just use gio leave in and unrefined shea butter mixed with virgin coconut oil.
