Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

Miss Jessie’s is known as “The Proven Expert in Curls” for a reason—and when it comes to managing our curly hair (which often seems to have a mind of its own), we could certainly use a dash of expertise. This cult favorite is specifically formulated to leave hair supersoft and crunch-free, while delivering enough hold and definition to keep frizz at bay on even the most humid summer days.

How it Works

Wheat proteins condition hair for soft, shiny curls, and the lightweight formula provides lasting definition without leaving any residue or stickiness behind. Bonus: The gentle gel won’t affect any chemical treatments.

How to Use

After cleansing, conditioning, and detangling hair, distribute a capful or more of product through damp (not wet) curls. Let air-dry, or use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer for soft, defined spirals.

Water (Aqua, Eau), Polysorbate 20, Glycerin, Carbomer, PVP, Triethanolamine, Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate, Fragrance (Parfum), Disodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein

I'm now a convert

For years I swore by Bumble and Bumble's Curl Conscious. But no more! Miss Jessie's is the best there is. I have some pretty unruly waves and this makes them soft and totally touchable - all day.

Great for Fine Hair
Purchased

This works very well with fine hair that's also curly. I have curly hair that tends to fall flat if the products I'm using are too heavy. This gel is great.

Love this product

I love this product - makes my hair really full but not frizzy. When you have curly hair, anything that you can find to help your hair stay in place is a real plus.

average curly hair product
Purchased

I have EXTREMELY curly, thick, and at times frizzy hair, and although I usually find that a foam works best to tame them, after reading the reviews for this product I decided to try it. I found that my hair still had a slight "crunchy" feel to it after it dried, and felt that this product was similar to a lot of the cheaper ones I can buy down the street at the drugstore.

Great Stuff!
Purchased

I gave this gel a shot after trying the Pillow Soft Curls and loving it. This gel is also really great too. It feels very light and clean in my hair, and made my curls super bouncy, shiny, and defined with no frizz. I have naturally curly fine hair that curls up very easily, and I usually straighten it because I don't like curly hair on me, but this stuff made me like my curls because it worked so well. I'm trying to be good and go more natural, especially for when the summer comes so I don't have to try to fight the curl and straighten it in hot humid weather. I also liked that this gel didn't have as strong as a scent as Pillow Soft Curls, which is overpowering. This was kind of the same scent, but seemed way more toned down which I like. This one is a winner!

I love this product!
Purchased

I recommend this product to anyone with curly hair! It doesn't make your hair "crunchy" but provides it with a frizz-free hold on your curls that doesn't feel like your'e wearing a helmet. Try it out, you won't be disappointed!
