Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

You’re a complicated lady. You aren’t only your city, your family, and your job: You’re also your love of solo bike rides, your scrumptious (and totally secret) recipe for triple-chocolate brownies, your dancing-in-your-seat roadtrip playlists. Likewise, your hair defies pat description: It’s a blend of textures, each curl a bit different than the last. This styling lotion is designed for all of them, giving you a frizz-free, manageable, and utterly you head of curls.

How it Works

This smooth formula is loaded with safflower oil and olive fruit oil to tamp down frizz without weighing down strands. It gives hair a sleek, more uniform curl while adding gentle, anything-but-crunchy hold.

How to Use

Evenly work a capful or more of styling lotion through clean, conditioned hair. Gently scrunch hair, then blow dry with a diffuser or let air dry.

Not sure why I got this

I have straight hair, it's not multi cultural or curly. I'm a little upset I got this in my birchbox when I don't have it marked that I have hair that needs this type of product.

cute curls
Sampled

I'm always looking for something to tame my curls. This defined my curls but didn't leave them feeling crisp and crunchy. Reviving the curls the next day was a simple as spritzing a little water on my hair and starting my day.

Love this
Sampled

I have naturally wavy hair, but when I use Miss Jessies it really added alot of curl, even the areas along the side of my face that never curl with other products. My hair stayed soft but held the curl all day. It is on my must buy list.

Amazing waves
Sampled

My hair is coarse and wavy, but not necessarily "multi-cultural". I decided to give this a try when it ended up in my Birchbox. I've tried some similar products before, but they've made my hair greasy and heavy. Not so with this one! Though it went on oily, by the time my hair air-dried, it was bouncy, wavy, and soft. I love it! And it looks like there's enough left in the packet for 2-3 more uses.

Not just for multicultural curls

I wish this product was marketed differently. If I hadn't received a sample of it, I never would have tried it. Turns out, it works on non-multicultural hair too. I have very wavy/frizzy hair. This was able to somewhat tame the frizz but still left my hair feeling soft and not crispy. It did not last all day, though. I was frizzy by the end of the day, and day two, I tried to reapply some to tame the frizz down, but it just wasn't happening.

Multi-racial, yes. Specific product needed, no.

Though I am mixed and have mixed texture hair, this product was not applicable to me. I have wavy hair and didn't see any dramatic changes in my hair, either to the more curly side of the spectrum or otherwise. For girls that have beautiful thick s-curl type hair, this product will probably work well for you.

Love

Although I don't have multicultural hair, I really liked the way this helped my curls stand out. It wasn't heavy nor did it make my hair look greasy.

Not Sure

I do not have multi-cultural or curly hair, so I really can't speak to how well it might work for the hair type the product is aimed at. I did use it on my slightly wavy hair and it was much too heavy.

Pretty good but not WOW

I have naturally straight hair, but I do like to curl it A LOT... but isn't this product for people with naturally curly locks? A little confused... It didn't do a whole lot for my hair.

Crunch fest

This made my hair super frizzy and crunchy at the same time. I didn't know that was possible.
