Birchbox Breakdown

We're kicking the outdated, crunchy curl look to the curb. This lightweight styling lotion gives definition to stubborn curls. The creamy formula delivers fluffy, touchable curls and larger than life volume, without weighing down your hair's natural bounce. It’'s made with a healing blend of avocado, coconut, sweet almond, and olive to repair dry, damaged locks. Plus, the fresh scent is sublimely subtle enough for everyday wear.

Finally! A product for my wacky waves!

After receiving a sample of Miss Jessie's Quick Curls in one of my Birchboxes, I decided to purchase my first full size product: Miss Jessie's Original Pillow Soft Curls. I actually ordered this product because it was the cheapest of their line of curling products. I mean, let's face it, I have never paid more than $10.00 for a hair product since I am never happy with them. But don't let the lower price fool you...this stuff is amazing and I like it better than my original Birchbox sample! This stuff gives my waves an actual curl, which looks amazing and rewards me with compliments from tons of people. It also tames the frizz without that crunchy, wet look that you get from most gels. The smell isn't too bad either. I am so happy to have finally found a product that does exactly what I want for my naturally curly hair! I can't wait to buy other products from Miss Jessie's!

Not a fan...
Purchased

Miss Jessie's makes awesome curly hair products, but this one is going back. Unlike the jelly soft curls (which I will delightfully continue to use) the pillow soft did nothing for my hair. Not only did it not give definition to my curls, it made my hair flat and limp (and I didn't use too much - tried it twice). Sure, there was no frizz, but it also zapped all the natural curl and body. For reference, my hair is medium thick, textured (almost coarse) and, naturally dries somewhere between big waves and ringlets, depending on its mood and the weather.

Perfect for taming unruly hair!

I have thick, curly hair and this product really helps tame it. It defrizzes and makes my curls very uniform in shape. I enjoyed this sample and can see myself purchasing the full-sized version in the future.

Took away the frizz, left my hair with soft curls

The smell is a little "laundry-ish" but the smell went away after my hair was dry, leaving a fresh, clean scent.

As some have suggested, I used the product sparingly (a dime-size for my thick, long, curly hair. My husband was the first to mention the lack of frizz. It definitely softened my curls without weighing them down. My hair also looks shinier. I'm definitely happy with the product.

Soft curls

This product really does give you soft curls that hold their shape. I like it better than the Jelly Curls. It has a pleasant smell and a great texture.

Great for curly hair
Purchased

I've tried a number of the Miss Jessie's products. This one is definitely one of the best. The smell is very distinct. So you'll likely either love it or hate it.

Just okay

I have somewhat fine curly hair and I felt like this product was a little too heavy for me and just weighed my curls down.

I love this stuff!
Sampled

I live in a very humid almost tropical climate. My hair absorbs moisture like a sponge. Miss Jessie's kept it curly, pretty, and very healthy looking in an outdoor setting for hours. I really like this and it is so easy to use.
