Amazing

First off, this smells so amazing! It also did a good job of taming my frizzy hair in humid Hawaii!

So-So

This stuff works well, but is kind of goopy and not what I thought it would be. I'm not sure it's worth the money. Smells great though!

Why is this still out of stock?? :(
Purchased

My favorite curl product! I wish it smelled like the jelly soft curls (Downy scent), but I will put up with this pineapple scent for the results. Definitely holds my giant curly 'fro down.

Love this stuff!

I have very dry, coarse and unruly hair! This stuff can tame it! Of course I use a ton of other hair products, but this sets the stage. I always need a ton of moisturizing so this fits the bill! I change my routine using several products I think my hair has multiple personalities, but in general I will use this first. Then devacurl gel, coconut oil spray and a minimal hold hairspray. I don't like it crunchy and then I diffuse!

Not bad
Purchased

I think is is great for very thick and curly/wavy hair. It helps with frizziness and I usually like to let my hair air dry instead of blow drying it and this works well when I'm letting my hair air dry! It also enhances my waves!

Great for curly hair
Purchased

Great smell does not leave hair hard dry or sticky great for losse curls or tight curls last all day for that just fresh look
Recommend for biracial hair that wears the curly look

Not right for my hair
Purchased

I have a closet full of hair products trying to find "the one" that will handle my strange hair. It will dry straight with a frizzy wave if I brush it straight wet, but will air dry in ringlets with some kind of product. My hair holds a lot of water so dries slow. This seems to keep it wetter longer, but is also a little to heavy for my hair. The smell really bother's me as well. To close to my face to smell that all the time.

Good, but not my favorite Miss Jessie's

After receiving a Miss Jessie's product sample in my box, I went to the store to purchase again but couldn't recall which product it was. I ended up with the curly meringue, which I like, but not as much as what I originally got. I haven't found a consistent method to make my curls look great - some days I got, others I don't. I find the smell to be totally overwhelming (I'm 6 months pregnant so maybe it's just me). Going to try pillow soft curls after this one.

Good, but was expecting greatness
Purchased

I have naturally curly, fairly fine, brown hair. I was really wanting this to be the last product I tried. But, as I should have figured by now, there is no prefect product. My hair still gets frizzy and doesn't stay together. I have found it better used as a cream after my mousse, and after my hair has dried most of the way.
Does leave things nice and soft, but curls don't stay defined for me.
