what a product!

I really liked this shampoo but the sample wasn't big enough to use twice unfortunately. Im contemplating buying the shampoo, but being my practical penny pinching self I will wait until my current shampoo bottle runs out :)

Nice product
Purchased

I bought this with Miss Jessie's pillow soft curls. I really enjoy this line of hair products. The consistency of the shampoo is exactly what it says on the bottle, "slippery", but it works well. I use this a couple of days a week for product buildup removal. I really like the subtle fragrance of this shampoo. I will continue to try more products from this line.

Love the scent, not the price

While I'm a huge fan of splurging on products, I'm not a huge fan of paying top dollar for shampoo. That said, this product was easy to use, smelled great, and rinsed clean. I would use this if I got it as a gift. I'm not sure I'd pay the listed price.

Slimy, Doesn't Lather Up But My Hair Felt Great

Super slimey shampoo, and it didn't lather up like it sounds like it would. But it left my hair feeling great and less tangly!

decent shampoo

This made my hair feel super clean. Smells good. I typically flat iron my hair everyday and noticed it minimized my frizz.

Love!

Smells great!
My curls are VERY dry and I have tried hundreds of shampoo / conditioner duos and this actually made my straw-like hair much softer! Finally a system that my hair can actually soak up!

Great for curly hair!
Purchased

I have always struggled to keep my curls volumized, shiny, and frizz-free....which isn't always an easy task in humid air. But Miss. Jessie's is wonderful! My hair smells, looks and feels amazing. I can't get enough of this stuff! If you are struggling with your curls, this is definitely the product for you.

Great shampoo for curly hair!
Purchased

I love the way this shampoo feels in my hair. It isn't harsh like other shampoos and really does help with tangles. I love how it leaves my hear feeling silky, not dry and rough. I have thick, wavy hair that tangles easily and this shampoo does the trick better than anything I've tried before. I love it!

Dreamy Suds
Purchased

I have loooong, color treated hair. It's been through cancer treatment and anesthesia, chemo and every bad thing can subject hair to. This shampoo is a hair treat. From the moment you massage it in to the time ur curls bounce, healthy and shiny...the scent, the texture, the entire experience. Have been a Miss Jessie's fan for 5 yrs. (found curly pudding at a specialty store in Ny and wrote to her.) One caveat..the bottle COULD be a tad bigger for the price , but this is true of everything. Very happy with this product!
