Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

Every curly-haired lady resorts to her own bag of tricks for whipping her strands into shape. This product is one of our favorites. Originally designed to help hair transition from relaxed to natural, this defrizzing formula has magical softening and smoothing effects on all types of curls, from loose waves to bobbing spirals. Wherever you fall on the spectrum from curly to straight, your hair just got a lot more manageable.

How it Works

Part leave-in conditioner, part styling product, this treatment is a champion multitasker. It protects and reinvigorates relaxed hair, hydrates natural hair, and creates soft, bouncy curls and waves. The smoothing formula helps your final style stay in place—with ultrasoft, touchable hold.

How to Use

Divide damp hair into six sections, applying product liberally to coat strands from roots to ends. Scrunch to encourage the curls. Let dry or diffuse, and you’re done!

No curls/waves here.
Sampled

I get keratin treatments so I was excited to receive this product. I was let down by the end results - no curls/waves and a gross texture in my hair. Much better, keratin safe products out there.

this was ineffective for me. i have long, bleached, thick coarse hair. it will take a lot more to make me see and feel a difference.

Love it!
Purchased

I pretty much like all of Miss Jessie's products, this one is great. I prefer the scent of pillow soft curls to this one but my main concern were my curls. It is great on my hair. But I think I will go back to Pillow Soft Curls, next time I run out.

Great for Curly Heads

I really liked this product. I have extremely curly hair and it can get very frizzy. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future.

Works Great!
Purchased

I got this for my daughters hair. She has very curly hair which we recently put a relaxer on. The relaxer made her hair very dry and I didn't like what it did to her curls. We put this on her hair and her curls look amazing!

Love the way that my hair scrunches when I use this. Gives my hair that perfect beach wave/curls look. Great for wavy hair!

Transition Complete

I recently purchased this product it worked a miracle for my hair now I don't have to do the 'BIG CHOP" it saved my hair. I can go out in public looking great. This is the first time I purchased a product that did exactly what it said it would do. Thank God, for Miss Jessie's products.

Thin slighty curly turned into smooth lovely curls!
Purchased

I have thin slightly curly (when wet) hair and in Seattle during the winter months there is NO POINT in drying my hair straight so I usually let it air dry and do its thing, but it always ends up looking frizzy no matter what product I use. However, I have been using this product for a week (just schlep a little on after towel drying) and voila I have the smooth waves that a girl can only dream about. Smell is absolutely lovely, not too greasy and not much is needed so will last a while!

Soft AND Defined!
Sampled

I loved this! I have thick, course, dry hair. It used to be fairly curly but I straighten my hair so often with a flat iron than some of my curls are awkward wave. It never looks decent when I try to wear it natural. However, this product not only helped define and revive my curls, but they were soft! I was blown away at how well this worked for me. My hair even looked good a day later after sleeping on it! This is something I plan to purchase when I run out of my current products.

fantastic product
SampledPurchased

I love, love, love this product. I have unruly naturally curly hair. I ordered the full size of this after trying the sample. I am now placing an order for a second tube. My hair is soft, manageable and curls just right. I often receive compliments on how soft and pretty my curls are now.
