Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s a cardinal curly hair rule: work with your strands, not against them. Miss Jessie’s® makes that easy with this weightless styling cream, which enhances hair’s natural bounce and shape without any heaviness. Whether your hair is naturally kinky, curly, or wavy, the moisturizing formula does away with frizz and dryness. And since it’s packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

How it Works

This light-as-air cream gets to work immediately, sealing in hydration and adding shine, while also softening and strengthening each strand. The secret to the formula is its winning combo of plant extracts, including grape seed, lavender, and chestnut. You can thank an infusion of ginger flower and lime for the fresh, sweet scent.

How to Use

Apply a tablespoon or so of the cream to damp hair, section by section. Don’t rinse out. Air dry your hair, or use a blow dryer with a diffuser for extra volume. Marvel at the amazing results.

Good stuff
Purchased

Nice texture, holds up to humidity. I have 3a/3b curls. It's not sticky, nor too light. It's just really pricey!

Not the best for fine, wavier hair
Sampled

I'm torn on this one. It does help encourage curl and tame frizz, but I found it to weigh down my hair and create greasiness by the end of the day. The smell is also strong (herbal/chemical, hard to describe).

Miss Jessie's original quick curls

This product is easy to use once you get out of the shower, towel dry hair until damp, I flipped my hair over and ran it throughout . And started scrunching my hair until you saw the curls. Placed a humidifier and warm heat. When It was done I had soft pliable curls.Love It

Love it- soft manageable curls with no frizz

Great product. Used a dime size for my shoulder length frizzy hair and got soft curls with no frizz (even during the afternoon rainstorm). I will buy the full size asap.

Bow Down

This is hands down the best curl product I have ever used. I have thick, long hair that usually just looks frizzy and unruly when I let it air dry. If I rub a dollop of this in my towel dried hair it dries looking great! Yay for less hair maintenance time.

Great product, probably my favorite Miss Jessie's product thus far. Give your curls the lock and protection it needs. Barely any frizz.

Lightweight and gets rid of the frizz
Sampled

I have wavy hair, so didn't expect much of a curl out of this. It did a good job bringing out the waves and help me get rid of the humidity-frizz. My hair looked shiny and moisturized, and I personally liked the smell.

Smells Great

This product smells wonderful but it really doesnt do what it is supposed to do. It did not make the frizz go away, not in the summer heat.
