Birchbox Breakdown

How it Works

This creamy shampoo smells like green apples, and is gentle enough to use every day. It get rids of residual product build-up and excess oil without any harsh stripping effects—even color-treated, relaxed, and processed hair is left intact.

How to Use

Wet your hair in the shower, and pour a small amount of shampoo into your palms. Apply to hair, concentrating on the roots, and massage into a rich lather. Rinse away with warm water.

The best I've found for curly hair
Purchased

Miss Jessie's knows curly hair! The Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo is thick (a little gooey and alarming at first) and cleans all of the styling product out of my hair with ease. I use Miss Jessie's Creme de la Creme conditioner, and my hair has never been healthier. My thick curls are controlled, less frizzy, and my hair is longer! Love Miss Jessie's!

Smells so good
Purchased

My daughter received a sample of this in her Birchbox and raved about how soft and how good it made my granddaughters hair smell. We were all surprised that the tangled/frizzy area she has was tamed with Miss Jesse's.

Love!!
Purchased

My hair is pretty wavy and this product is great with my brief after-shower routine of a little bit of mousse and salt spray. I love that it is sudsy, but doesn't take forever to rinse out. Only complaint is that the shampoo and conditioner are different sizes so I always run out at different times!!

I have straight hair so I can't rate on curly goodness, but this shampoo wasn't sudsy or thick enough for my taste.

Great for coily 4a upkeep
Purchased

I bought this for one of my girls to use after we combed out her dreads. She's got high maintenance coils and is an active swimmer/farm girl so keeping the dreads from setting is a weekly project. This stuff helps when followed by a deep conditioner. Great smell and for little kids, tubs with huge lids don't get put back on leading to waste of tons of product. I like the traditional squeeze bottle form.

Good For My Curls
Purchased

Pros:
Miss Jessie's Slip Sudsy Shampoo does detangle my hair and helps enhance my curls (I use this in conjunction with other Miss Jessie's finishing products.) I don't have to use a lot for it to separate my incestuous spirals. The smell isn't strong and is rather pleasant.

Cons:
The product is very thin so it is easy to use too much. There is also a lack of suds for a product saying that it is sudsy.

Over all:
I like this product. I don't use it everyday, as it's not good to shampoo daily for my type of hair, but the detangling does last a few days. I would buy this product again.

Love this shampoo!!
Purchased

This shampoo really cleans my hair and leaves it feeling fresh after cleaning off all of the other styling products I use. I only wish it was more "sudsy" - it seems like I can never evenly distribute the product throughout my hair.

Probably great shampoo

I love all of Miss Jessie's curly hair products, although this shampoo did not make a big impression on me, so I can't remember if it was great or not. Usually I need more than one usage of a product to determine how well I like it.

Great value
Purchased

This shampoo offers a salon-quality product for an affordable price. A small amount will lather well and spread over a LOT of hair (cuz I have a LOT of hair). Hair feels more soft and moisturized, looks healthier, less styling product was needed. Definitely putting this on my shopping list.

Im confused...
Purchased

The name of the shampoo is Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo. I got none of that from this shampoo. I put the shampoo in my palms and tried to rub it a little so I could transfer to my head and it just sat there in a slimy clump. It would not suds AT ALL! I put the shampoo in my hair and it sat right in the one spot where I put it and barely moved anywhere else. I think this actually made my hair MORE tangled than with other shampoos. I have Caucasian/Hispanic wavy to curly hair. Maybe this was just not suited for my hair type but I did not like it at all. I gave the bottle away after suffering through half of it. Will never buy it again. So disappointed because I had heard so many reviews about this product line :(
