Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

The curly-hair experts at Miss Jessie’s® continue to impress us with their problem-solving, hair-maximizing products. Their latest formula helps curls look their best by adding volume while boosting shine. It loosens and lengthens tightly wound curls without weighing hair down. It’s great for the full spectrum of curly textures, from kinky coils to tight ringlets.

How it Works

This curl-enhancing cream stretches out each follicle for looser curls while adding volume and shine. Hydrolyzed wheat proteins and wheat amino acids fortify hair, while a team of moisturizing oils including coconut, jojoba, avocado, and olive add silkiness and softness.

How to Use

Apply this cream post-shower, while your hair is still wet. Work it through hair section by section and then let your hair air dry. Optional: for stretched-out curls, let hair air-dry. Grab sections and pull downward, while blow-drying from root to midshaft. For best results use a nozzle attachment.

Not good

I love miss jessie products but I'm not a huge fan of this one. I brought it from targe for $36.00 and it was really small and not worth the price. The reason I brought the cream is because it said stretch but it didn't do that.

Best Curl Enhancing Product!
Purchased

I have long, curly and frizzy hair that can be quite flat by the end of the day (but still grossly frizzy all the time). With the Stretch Silkening Creme I can trust my hair to stay curly with fewer frizzys--all without any crunchy, waxy or oily finish.

This product has done wonders for my hair and I would recommend it for anyone with curly-frizzy hair like mine.

great for thick, curly hair
Purchased

This product did not work well on my fine curls but it works amazingly well for my sister's thicker, tighter curls. She's a fan for life now! She says the product worked well while braving the cold on the East coast but also works great for day to day living in Hawaii.

A personal Favorite
Purchased

Sampled this through birchbox when I first started and I fell in love. It's what I reach for on second or third day curls, and it refreshes them like no other product I've used. It also smells awesome, but very strongly.

A little disappointed

I am mixed and have very curly hair to the point where my straight hair is below my shoulders but when it's curly - it's up to my chin.

When I first used the product, I think I used to much leading to sections of my curls being stringy and limp. I didn't even know curls could be stringy.

After my second use, my curls were looser, however they were also frizzy toward the ends and my hair had that Christmas tree/ triangle shape.

I'm still going to give it a try, but I'm a little disappointed.

Not a fan

After multiple samples from this company, I am just not a fan. This creme has the same issues as the others. It weighs my hair down. No light weightless curls. It looks and feels like I didn't rinse all the conditioner out of my hair.

Great Product!!
Purchased

I bought the full size after receiving a sample in my box awhile back. I absolutely love it! It smells amazing and makes my curls look great. It smoothes and defines them without making them look greasy or crunchy.

Soft Curls
Purchased

I kept reading reviews about how great this product was so I had to try it---I LOVE this stuff. For days when I don't want to go through blow-drying and straightening my hair, I put some of this in my palms, rub it together, and then scrunch in wet hair. I loved that it dried to a (mostly) soft texture and the smell of it wasn't chemically-it smells like roses mixed with baby powder, but it doesn't overpower :)

Soft, smooth, not crunchy curls
Purchased

Love this hair cream, love how soft it leaves my hair feeling, and it smells fantastic. The only downside is you need to use a lot of product to really coat your curls. I wouldn't say it loosens the curl much, but its the only product I've used that defines my curls without leaving them crunchy. I've even used it pre-blowout and it leaves my hair smooth and shiny.
