I have curly hair

I loved the packaging very vingtage! i felt i was in one of those old I love lucy shows :) I did like the scent it was a bit like a pina colada scent fruity and coconut-ish. I have tried it only 2 times so far. and i have liked the outcome my hair is long and curly and frizzes in a heart beat. and so far this product has been able to keep my hair under control. I really liked the sample size it allows you go really try it out.

makes my curls look nice
Sampled

The meringue is thicker than i expected, but seems to do the job. my curls are not frizzy at all when combined with a curling mousse. I could not use it alone.

Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue - :/
Sampled

As I don't have very "curly", I'm more of a wavy girl, I didn't find much use for this product. Although, I do have a sister with super duper curly ringlet type hair so I gave it to her. From what she told me, it does seem to tame frizz. It definitely smells great and it has a nice creamy, smooth texture. I think the only down-side to the product is that it does have a tendency to be a tad bit greasy (for lack of a better word). Though I was quite nicely surprised at the ample sample size.. I know my sister was definitely able to get more than a few uses out of it, which is really nice considering it's only a sample.

I liked the product, but I think it is for people who have truly curly or textured hair. Either that, or you have to wash your hair every day or so.

This one will hurt...my Garnier creme works better at defining my curls than this did. I know! Blasphemy! But all in all, I wasn't impressed with the end result. Super cute packaging, though!

Smell

The product texture was great. The smell not so great. It left my hair dry and smelling funky. It did do the job of curling better but cant tolerate the smell.

No real difference

I have heard raves about Miss Jessie products so I was excited to see this product in my birchbox. I have ringlet curls that are fizzy and not well defined. I didnt see any difference after using this product with the exception of a few ringlets being a bit tighter. My hair was still as frizzy as can be.

This product smells really good but it does get a little over whelming. It makes my hair soft and helps with the frizz.

It's probably a very nice product for thicker, curlier...
Sampled

It's probably a very nice product for thicker, curlier hair, but since is mine is quite thin and just wavy, it's a little too much for my hair and tends to weigh it down.
