Lackluster finish
Purchased

I really wanted to love this product after reading reviews and seeing the cult-like following. I have combo hair with super thick waves in the back, and more fine straighter strands in the front. A challenging mix. This product weighs down my waves and doesn't give much definition. Possible that I purchased the wrong product, but I'm looking for a curly haired pal to adopt the super size tube.

Sticky with cloying scent
Purchased

My curls dried sticky, not soft, and were unmanageable all day. I could not wait to wash it out. The scent is identical to baby powder which I don't like (unless it is on babies!)

Miracle in a Bottle

This curling cream is the absolute best. I discovered the product while shopping Birchbox, but decided not to purchase. When I saw the product in a local store, I could not resist, and boy am I glad. This cream is so wonderful! The scent is delicious - a combination of a clean smell with a hint of floral. The texture is creamy, not sticky or gel-ly like some curling products can be. I personally apply this product after spraying a leave in conditioner in my hair and the result is pure magic. My hair is light, bouncy, and curly all day. The smell lingers slightly, so that when you move your head around you get a delightful whiff of this goodness. I would recommend this to any girl who has wavy, curly, or kinky hair. Great job Miss Jessie's!

But the smell...

This product worked really well at creating big, soft curls in my very thick wavy/curly hair. Problem is you end up smelling just like fabric softener which makes sense because that is the exact technology utilized. I found it too strong…so much I needed to wash it out of my hair.

Love!!

Soft, bouncy, shiny curls. Amazing.
Wouldn't recommend for finer hair, but thicker curly hair, this is great!!
It really enhances my curl and leaves them springy. Smells good too!

Works okay

It did have a nice feel and descent smell. I didn't feel like my hair as looked great after using this as I had anticipated.

Smells great, does what it promises
Purchased

I have naturally curly hair, but need something to tame the frizz and this product smells great, and tames my curls with less frizz and it's very lightweight!

Nice Product

It worked wonderfully with my hair and I definitely liked the way it styled with this product. My only complaint would be that it smells a bit like fabric softener? Which I guess is the point based on the description on the packaging (which compared it to fabric softener), but I sort of felt like I smelled like laundry all day haha. Luckily I actually quite like the smell of laundry.

I love pillow soft curls

This is easily one of my favorite styling products. I love the moisture it provides to my naturally fairly dry hair while maintaining massive amounts of bounce. I finger comb it into my hair after a shower. It sets somewhat like gel as it dries so I usually comb it through to prevent it from feeling crunchy.

Great Frizz Tamer!
Purchased

This stuff is great! The smell is pretty strong and takes some getting used to, but I love how I can finally air dry my hair and leave it curly without having to worry about it getting too frizzy and "poofy" throughout the day. It doesn't have that great of a hold like I would have hoped, but my hair never seems to hold, no matter what I try.
Make sure you spread it evenly and don't use too much in one area- sometimes I have certain spots that look oily from where I didn't evenly distribute the cream through some strands.
