Super soft!
Purchased

I LOVE this curl lotion! It is what I've wanted from every "curl" product I've ever bought!

I have thick curly hair, and I have A LOT of it. This curl lotion has consistently made my hair voluminous and curly without being frizzy or too big.

It also definitely lives up to its name, Pillow Soft Curls, and keeps my hair soft and natural feeling instead of feeling crunchy or gummy.

5/5 stars!

my go-to styling product
SampledPurchased

This is my favorite styling cream for everyday use by far! It's a very low maintenance cream (applying to either wet or damp/dry hair) that gives you great curl definition while keeping your hair so soft and frizz to a minimum. My all time favorite thing about this product is the fresh clean scent, leaving your hair smelling great till the next wash.

Great product, but some frizz left

In the past, I have used two products on my wavy/curly hair. But with Miss Jessie's, I only have to use one! This defines my curls really well, giving me loose ringlets instead of the more wavy texture I normally get. And it doesn't make my hair crunchy at all. But I have noticed that there is a little more frizz than I would get with other products. I think a little bit of frizz is worth it, though, for the curl definition and softness that I get with Miss Jessie's.

I absolutely adore this curl cream! Gone are the days of mixing products together to get the desired results. These leaves my curly hair with defined ringlets and also soft to the touch. My new go to product!

Soft Curls
Purchased

I bought the full size of this after reading all the reviews. This is probably the first product I've used that actually doesn't leave the ends of my hair crunchy...both letting dry naturally and diffusing. I like the smell...it does have a bit of a laundry smell but it's light. My hair is between wavy and curly, and this product did a good job of defining them.

I'm going to keep trying with this product. I am not thrilled with the strong smell or the feel of the product. My hair is wavy. I felt like the product weighed my hair down. It may not be suited for wavy/ fine hair.

I was so excited - but alas

The reviews and descriptions made me think that I had found the solution for my frizzy hair, but no such luck. This left my hair feeling full of product, a little crunchy, and smelling like a dryer sheet. It was definitely better than some I have tried, but not something I wanted to keep.

In case it helps: I have lots of fine curly/wavy hair that has a mind of it's own. This product was too heavy for me.
