Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s a cardinal curly hair rule: work with your strands, not against them. Miss Jessie’s® makes that easy with this weightless styling cream, which enhances hair’s natural bounce and shape without any heaviness. Whether your hair is naturally kinky, curly, or wavy, the moisturizing formula does away with frizz and dryness. And since it’s packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

How it Works

This light-as-air cream gets to work immediately, sealing in hydration and adding shine, while also softening and strengthening each strand. The secret to the formula is its winning combo of plant extracts, including grape seed, lavender, and chestnut. You can thank an infusion of ginger flower and lime for the fresh, sweet scent.

How to Use

Apply a tablespoon or so of the cream to damp hair, section by section. Don’t rinse out. Air dry your hair, or use a blow dryer with a diffuser for extra volume. Marvel at the amazing results.

Amazing product
Purchased

I love Miss Jessie's! I bought the full size because I loved my sample size that came in my birchbox. It is super light and effective. It works with my natural curls without clumping! Along with keeping my curls beautiful it also prevents frizziness! Love love love!

I have naturally curly hair, and this quick curls is a must for me. My hair never looks as good with any other product! I wish I had found this years ago.

Good product but...
Purchased

I do like this product as it does help maintain my natural curly hair. However, while using it takes my hair forever to dry naturally and the smell is something to get use too.

Love Miss Jessie's

I have wavy, usually frizzy hair and this is by far the best product I've used. Put it in after the shower and let it air dry. Hair looks great. Not a fan of the smell though. Really overpowering.

Keeps it soft, but not frizz-free
Purchased

This product was good for keeping my hair in place, but didn't really tame the frizz. It also didn't help with my wavy/curly hair, unless I scrunched it up and let it dry in a bun. I like the scent of this product. You need to be careful how much you apply or your hair becomes heavy and greasy.

Great for Curls!

This brand kept coming up when googling anything to do with curly hair. This keeps my curls soft (not crunchy), but also holds them all day long, which is not normally the case. I will keep using this product! (I also love this brand's shampoo & conditioner)

Smells amazing!..but..

This product smells amazing! The only issue I have with this product it makes my hair tangled and hard to brush later, so it is pretty much necessary to wash out later.
