Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

Every curly-haired lady resorts to her own bag of tricks for whipping her strands into shape. This product is one of our favorites. Originally designed to help hair transition from relaxed to natural, this defrizzing formula has magical softening and smoothing effects on all types of curls, from loose waves to bobbing spirals. Wherever you fall on the spectrum from curly to straight, your hair just got a lot more manageable.

How it Works

Part leave-in conditioner, part styling product, this treatment is a champion multitasker. It protects and reinvigorates relaxed hair, hydrates natural hair, and creates soft, bouncy curls and waves. The smoothing formula helps your final style stay in place—with ultrasoft, touchable hold.

How to Use

Divide damp hair into six sections, applying product liberally to coat strands from roots to ends. Scrunch to encourage the curls. Let dry or diffuse, and you’re done!

This stuff is great for unruly, frizzy, curly, hair like mine! I wore this in Hawaii and it helped a lot!

Best curls ever!
SampledPurchased

This amazing product brought my curls to life. They are silky, smooth, and bouncy. My hair even feels great the next day. I have been searching for a curl cream that did not give out on me by the end of the day, did not leave my curls "crunchy", and eliminated frizz. Miss Jessie's is it!!

Worked well for my hair type
Sampled

I have curly/frizzy hair and am always looking for a new product to manage my curls without using a ton of hairspray. While it definitely made my hair softer, still needed more products for frizz.

I've tried other Miss Jessie's products and liked them however this one was a complete waste because it's for a specific hair type (African American) which is not mine.

Incredible

I got this product a part of my mystery sample pack. While I do not have relaxed hair (it's wavy), I love this product! My hair came out perfectly straight and soft using only my blow dryer. Usually I also have to flat iron it, but this did the trick! Saving a step is always welcomed, especially in the summer when heat styling is a pain. I'm excited to see how it works when I air dry my hair.

Weight down
Purchased

I was really disappointed with this product. I have very curly and fine hair and it completely weight my hair down and made it very greasy. I had to wash my hair twice as much as I normally would. Even when I used less than was recommended it was still too much.

I do not recommend this product if your curly hair is super fine.

This is the best product for curly hair. It doesn't leave your hair greasy looking or feeling. It allowed me to show off my natural curls.
