Light Curling Creme
Purchased

I love this product. I have wavy hair and I fight to keep it voluminous and soft. But this product does the trick! I will never use another curling creme again.

My favorite new hair product!
SampledPurchased

This is my new favorite hair product. It's a one step and done product. No more mixing styling cream and gel. This does the job of both, making hair soft yet keeping and defining the curl, eliminating frizz at the same time. No more crunchy curls!!! I towel dry my hair, work a bit of this through then scrunch and let air dry. It works very well with a hair dryer and diffuser, too. <3

Finally, something that keeps my curls soft!
Sampled

I finally decided to try this sample (I ALWAYS straighten my hair and when I am too lazy to, it goes into a messy bun). I really liked it and my curls were so actually soft and not frizzy. I haven't worn my hair curly in a while, so I'm not used to how I look, but I like knowing that it's an option for my lazy days!

Love it!
Purchased

My hair is wavy/curly, and this tames any frizz, amps up my curls, and never looks or feels stiff or sticky. It does smell like downy, but I can dig it, for sure.

Product ok
Purchased

I purchased this after loving other Ms. Jessie products. I hav e thick, dry, wavy hair and the product seems to weigh down my curls and doesn't give much shine. The smell doesn't bother me, but it smells a little bit like sunblock.

Great curls
SampledPurchased

This product is fantastic for managing my unruly curls. It leaves them soft and touchable while keeping their shape and keeping frizz at a minimum. I'm very pleased with this product!

So disappointed

I was crushed that this didn't work for me. I had been hoping it would be in my box for a few months. I hate wasting money on a curl product only to have it not work and then by stuck with a 3/4 full bottle. Boy am I glad I didn't buy this. This gel dried my hair up so bad it felt like straw within 3 uses. I have pretty good curly hair and this product zapped it. It did not control the frizz nor give my hair any body. It just hung limply. When I went to wash it out it honestly scared me how dry and brittle it felt. I had to use a deep conditioning cream to counteract it. I would define my hair and wavy/curly but very healthy. This is not anything other than a waste of money.

Great product
Purchased

I have wavy hair- wavy enough to either require product to bring out the waves or a flat iron to straighten it. This product is great at accentuating my waves. Doesn't leave my hair sticky or crunchy. Only complaint is the smell- it is extremely strong and smells almost like a Bounce dryer sheet. I don't really want my hair to smell like my laundry.

The product is too heavy on my hair. And I have really thick hair. It makes my hair feel dirty

LOVE
Purchased

I LOVE this stuff. I have moderately thin hair that can get frizzy pretty easily (don't be jealous). BUT, my hair can have awesome waves when it air dries properly and this stuff did the trick! Non of those hard, crunchy waves. Really natural and beachy. Good stuff!
