Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

You’re a complicated lady. You aren’t only your city, your family, and your job: You’re also your love of solo bike rides, your scrumptious (and totally secret) recipe for triple-chocolate brownies, your dancing-in-your-seat roadtrip playlists. Likewise, your hair defies pat description: It’s a blend of textures, each curl a bit different than the last. This styling lotion is designed for all of them, giving you a frizz-free, manageable, and utterly you head of curls.

How it Works

This smooth formula is loaded with safflower oil and olive fruit oil to tamp down frizz without weighing down strands. It gives hair a sleek, more uniform curl while adding gentle, anything-but-crunchy hold.

How to Use

Evenly work a capful or more of styling lotion through clean, conditioned hair. Gently scrunch hair, then blow dry with a diffuser or let air dry.

Not sure why I got this

I have straight hair, it's not multi cultural or curly. I'm a little upset I got this in my birchbox when I don't have it marked that I have hair that needs this type of product.

Multi-racial, yes. Specific product needed, no.

Though I am mixed and have mixed texture hair, this product was not applicable to me. I have wavy hair and didn't see any dramatic changes in my hair, either to the more curly side of the spectrum or otherwise. For girls that have beautiful thick s-curl type hair, this product will probably work well for you.

Love

Although I don't have multicultural hair, I really liked the way this helped my curls stand out. It wasn't heavy nor did it make my hair look greasy.

Not Sure

I do not have multi-cultural or curly hair, so I really can't speak to how well it might work for the hair type the product is aimed at. I did use it on my slightly wavy hair and it was much too heavy.

Pretty good but not WOW

I have naturally straight hair, but I do like to curl it A LOT... but isn't this product for people with naturally curly locks? A little confused... It didn't do a whole lot for my hair.

Crunch fest

This made my hair super frizzy and crunchy at the same time. I didn't know that was possible.

Surprisingly Amazing

My hair is wavy and I wouldn't consider myself "multicultural," but this made my hair look and feel amazing! I normally use an anti-frizz serum, but this worked way better for me. My hair is soft, smooth and light all day long. No greasiness or frizz later in the day, just perfect all day long. I'll definitely be buying more of this and maybe even the shampoo.

Surprise! I love it

I was really suspicious about receiving this in my Birchbox because I have fine, blonde, wavy hair, but I love this product! It give my hair volume, it defines the natural waves in my hair without making it look greasy and it smells really good!
