Sampled

Since I'm on the fence about the product, I don't know about recommending it to anyone else. I love that the sample size is so generous, though. If it doesn't work for my hair, it may work for my teen daughter. Our hair types are vastly different and we're both "natural"

I'm not crazy about the texture this product gave my hair. Maybe it was just a bad hair day, so I'm going to give it another try... but the product was kind of sticky and resulted in some strange frizz. I generally use creamier products to avoid that sticky/stiff look.

Wonderful Cream
Purchased

This wonderful styling cream is just what my frizzy waves needed! I have thick wavy hair, I only need to apply a small amount to my hair. Not a fan of the scent.

good frizz control

I have wavy hair but frizzy. Did a good job with frizz control. It smells good as well. Cannot comment on curly hair.

Smells Yummy!
Purchased

I have naturally curly/wavy fine hair. This product gives me more of a defined curl while not weighing my hair down. Not to mention is smells good enough to eat!

Sassy hair makes for a good time!
Purchased

This was the first product from Miss Jessie's that I've tried. I love it. It's my go to styling product for a night out. And I love how using a little keeps the frizz at bay and adding more defines your curls into soft ringlets. I recommend always applying it damp hair, that's been lightly towel dried. If your hair is too wet, you need to apply more product. Also, if you apply too much and it's a dry day, the product will flake off of your hair and look like you walked out in a snow shower. There is a careful balance between too much and too little when you use this particular hair product.

Soft curls, medium hold

I have thick curly hair and find this product to be effective in maintaining my curls for most of the day but eventually loses hold. It certainly makes my curls softer and doesn't get gunky but if you are looking to define your curls, try another product.
