Start your curly-hair regimen off on the right foot with Miss Jessie's® Original Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo.

Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

Miss Jessie’s is known as “The Proven Expert in Curls” for a reason—and when it comes to managing our curly hair (which often seems to have a mind of its own), we could certainly use a dash of expertise. This cult favorite is specifically formulated to leave hair supersoft and crunch-free, while delivering enough hold and definition to keep frizz at bay on even the most humid summer days.

How it Works

Wheat proteins condition hair for soft, shiny curls, and the lightweight formula provides lasting definition without leaving any residue or stickiness behind. Bonus: The gentle gel won’t affect any chemical treatments.

How to Use

After cleansing, conditioning, and detangling hair, distribute a capful or more of product through damp (not wet) curls. Let air-dry, or use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer for soft, defined spirals.

Water (Aqua, Eau), Polysorbate 20, Glycerin, Carbomer, PVP, Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Fragrance (Parfum), Disodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein

Miss Jessie's® Original Jelly Soft Curls

My hair is wavy, not curly. I do not use products for curly hair. However, I did try the sample and it has a nice smell.

Whoa!

Well, I love this curling gel. It has such a wonderful scent. My boyfriend always comments on it! If you're looking for natural looking curls, this will do it. I have fairly wavy hair -- not curly. It makes my hair hold in the waves well without looking crunchy. Thank goodness!

So far, so good!!

I was a little skeptical when I received another Miss Jessie's product in my box, let alone a gel, but so far this product rocks! I love the way it defines my curls and how it makes them feel...there is definitely no crunch like you get with some other gel products. I do use this with a leave in conditioner to help tame frizz, but I'm loving this product so far.

Not For Me ...

I don't like the feel of products in my hair and this was no exception. My hair knotted easily and had a stiff, grimy feeling.

Jelly curls sample

I am impressed with this curl gel, having tried about 1000 other curly hair products on the market. Even though it feel heavy and thick on your hands, this leaves no crunchies at all and does not make your hair look greasy. On the flip side, the hold on it is a bit light and does fade somewhat throughout the day. Still, for waves this is an excellent product.

Great product from a great brand

I love miss Jessie's products. They are all amazing. This gave my wavy hair lots of definition, but it didn't eliminate the frizz like the packet promised.

Curls for days!

Great product, as well as brand for those curly girls. I have tried other products from this range that I like a bit more. I felt like this one was a tad heavy for the summer months.

Fabulous

I love this brand! I hate when I leave my hair curly and I go to run my hands through my hair, and it feels hard like I used an entire bottle of gel or when it gets oddly sticky so you end up throwing it in a messy bun. This gel really helps maintain my curls and leaves them soft and gorgeous!

Lauren

Great for my curly hair. I didn't feel like I was putting something sticky in my hair like some other products i've used before. Will possibly consider purchasing for future use!
