Great product!

This product is a little hard to distribute but works great. I have probably the wildest curls I've ever seen and it keeps them soft and beautiful without taming them!

Pretty Good, but Curls a Bit Crunchy
Purchased

Overall, I liked this product. It smells really nice (but strong, so if you don't like pineapple, it's not for you). It was good at defining my curls, but they still seemed a bit crunchy when I used this product, but not too bad.

Curly Girl Must Have!
Purchased

I received this sample and actually gifted to a curly haired friend because I already have to containers on hand. I absolutely love miss Jessie products. Great curls products for all curl types and doesn't dry my hair out. I like to use the pillow soft curls on my ends because my curl pattern is really loose in some areas but most of my hair stays in its spiral form and doesn't get hard. I can even wear my curls the next day which is big plus.

Great product!!!

I loved the smell of this product and received many compliments. My hair is naturally curly but also very thick and seems to get weighed down with other products. This one didn't feel like my hair was weighed down at all. Loved it!

Some good stuff!
Purchased

At first I was disappointed with how misleading the picture is. This is not the actual size you receive. The product itself , however, works wonders. It smells great and does the job. I finally found a product I can stick to.

Great for my little girl
Purchased

I have not used this on my hair yet but I mainly got it for my daughter. It's perfect for her hair. She is African American, American Indian, English, and Irish in heritage. She has dry, fine, curly hair. This product brings her curl out nice and tame while hydrating all day. Be careful not to put too much product in. It flaked the first time until I got used to the right amount for her hair. She is 18 months old so this should last me a little while!

Good as an supplemental product
Purchased

The texture is a bit difficult to work with as it's very tacky and hard to evenly distribute. I've since figured out that it's best to just apply to the ends of my curls to tame the frizziness and maintain even curl structure and use my daily product throughout the rest of my hair.

OMG AMAZING
Purchased

I have unbelievably thick, curly hair and nothing short of entire bottles of gel can tame it. I am always searching for products to use that won't make it feel hard and brittle-- I loved this stuff! My hair stayed super shiny and soft all day and everyone complimented me on being able to wear my hair down for once. And I didn't need to use the entire jar of it- only a bit more than the recommended amount. Will definitely be re-ordering.

THANK YOU!!!
Purchased

I love this hair product. I have short hair that can be very curly/frizzy! I like this product because it tames my hair and does not make it crunchy. In the summer, my hair with this prodcut still remains under control!!
