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.

Miss Jessie Products are a revelation!
Sampled

When I received this sample in my monthly birch box I was so happy because I looked forward to trying this line. It was everything I expected it to be and more! I have many different curl textures as I am transitioning from relaxed to natural and this not only moistened my curls and kept them shiny all day, it evened out the many crazy textures! LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

This product, though I'm not sure it was made for my type of curls, did really well and wasn't too heavy. I would buy this product

At Last!

So long I've waited for this! This was an AMAZING product. I have difficult hair, very very curly, but fine hair, and LOTS of it. All I had to go was run it through the ends of my hair after a shower, and I was good to go. It added appropriate volume, didn't feel weighed down or sticky, and it still combats the frizz. I would recommend this product a hundred times over.

Decent

It did help my waves a bit, but could have been a little lighter. It didn't make my hair too greasy either.

Liked it

This worked well on my long, thin, blond, wavy hair. It used very little and then spritzed with water later in the day and my wavy hair became more curly, this I liked. The only issue I had was that the sample came in a package that I couldn't seal for later use.

Amazing!

This was a great product! I'd love to get more of this brand, because it really held my curls. The texture of the cream is great.

If Miss Jessie were a real person I'd be fighting to hang out in her social circle. She just gets me--or at least she gets my hair, and isn't that the same thing?! Love this product.

Loved the packaging, the smell, the product was wondering...great price and didn't leave my hair feeling oily at all (which is difficult because I have very fine hair!)...even my grandma wanted some.

I could not find a line that tamed my crazy hair until miss Jessie's came along, and this product does not disappoint!
