Works great on my fine curly hair

My hair is by definition multicultural and I have several different textures in my head ranging from loose waves to tight curls. My hair is dry and tends to frizz as I live in the tropics. I generally need a LOT of moisture. So I bought this hoping it might do some good and I was happy to say that it did! I initially thought it might be a bit heavy as my hair felt a little weighted down and coated on the first day. But it was beautiful in the second, third and even fourth day! And I never get pretty day 3 hair far less for day 4. My hair was soft, hydrated, and my curls looked lovely. I give this product a thumbs up. It works really well for me.

Perfect for my hair!
Sampled

I have thin, wavy hair. I've tried countless mousse and salt spray products to get that curl but its always either too heavy on my hair or makes my curls crunchy. This gave me a soft, pretty curl and I loved it! It doesn't take a lot. I get compliments every time I use it! I would definitley recommend it!

worked wonders!

I used this product and found that it held my curls beautifully! No frizz, soft curls...not that stiff feeling most products leave. The true test was in SE Asia! It worked pretty darn well with all that humidity in Laos and Vietnam. My curls stayed frizz free all day...no an easy task. I love this stuff!!

For those with mixed hair

This is an all-in-one miracle product. I've almost eliminated all my other hair products for maintenance. And it smells amazing!

Black/Indian Hair Review
Purchased

I used this product after showering on damp hair. Dried with a diffuser and applied more product. I'm not 100% sold on the product. It has a great scent and my curls are super soft, but I personally like more of a hold with my product. Over time my hair still is prone to frizz.

Great product for those with difficult curls
Sampled

I learned of Miss Jessie's products through Birchbox. My very first box I received back in 2014 was a envelope of their curl enhancing product. I have extremely curly, difficult and unmanageable hair and have yet to find a product that really let's the curls pop without all of the fizziness. At first I didn't try the product because I figured it would be like all of the other companies I have tried in the past. I accidentally ran out of my usual gel and decided to give it a go. It was amazing. When I received this different product sample, I was really excited to try out another one of their products.

Miss Jessie's products have a wonderful, clean smell and although the product is thick, it's not heavy or sticky. Anyone with curly hair needs to try this product! It's definitely worth every penny!

How I ever made it throughout life without this product is beyond me! My naturally kinky/curly/frizzy hair hasn't seen a flat iron in months. Instead, I proudly step out the door rocking a full head of curls and feeling like I own the world. Thank you Miss Jessie for the mega hair confidence!

Fabulous 2nd Day Hair

I am in love with this product! The fact that I bought this at a discounted price makes it a steal for me. The first time I used it was on 2nd day hair and it gave my curls life! They were more bouncy and had volume. A little goes a long way but if you are left with a cast you just have to break it and your hair is soft again. I did have frizz when the first time I used it but coconut oil took it away. However, when I used it after the shower it left my hair shiny and no frizz. Just work with it and you'll love it. Ps. I wasn't a fan of the lemon cleaning product smell but it fades away!

It smells really nice and it does not make your hair stiff. Will probably order again when I run out.

His works very well on my very wavy hair. I just scrunch it in wet and let it dry. When it's dry I just scorch again to get the little bit of stiffness out
