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!

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.

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.

A MUST for curly locks

This stuff is hands down the best curly hair product I have ever used! It controls frizz, gives the appropriate amount of volume, and gives your hair a nice even curl. My hair naturally is very very curly on the bottom but an awkward wavy on top which usually results in me looking like a Christmas tree. This stuff gives me a nice beachy wavy look with plenty of volume at the roots. The best part is that you can still run your fingers through your hair! It's not sticky or super hard. It's like fabric softener for your hair. And it smells like clean laundry too! I'll never use anything else for my curly days!

What I love about Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft curls is that it makes my curls so soft and smooth, and not hard and crunchy like gel or mousse would. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!
