Curls, curls CURLS!!
Purchased

This product is wonderful! And it smells fantastic. One small drawback, you only have to use a very tiny amount. If you use more, it tends to get on your neck and face.

Liked Pillow Soft Better
Purchased

I bought this product after trying the Pillow Soft sample from my box. While I liked the meringue, I LOVED the pillow soft more. The meringue product still worked great--I am half-African American so I thought this product would be the better fit, but I enjoyed the Pillow Soft more. :) Great product though!

A nice curling creme...
Sampled

I loved received curly hair products in my Birchbox this month, and Miss Jessie's Curly Meringe was the product I was most excited to receive. I was even more excited to find that I wasn't disappointed once I tried it. The product smells lovely. It has a nice smooth creme texture, and it made my curls look great.

I normally use a moisturizing shea-butter based curl creme in conjunction with a styling gel and a light leave-in conditioner. I would say my routine at the moment is at holy grail status, because I hardly ever switch it up. This Curly Meringe, however, is one product I would consider adding to my arsenal.

What's special about this is I didn't need an additional styling gel (you do need a leave-in). Even though this is a creme product, it definitely gives moisture, definition, and hold! When I used my gel on top of it, my curls just frizzed. When I used the Curly Meringe alone, my curls looked fabbed.

If you are someone that HATES the crunch from gel, I'd look into this product. My curls had that "after scrunching out the crunch" feel to it once it dried. You definitely need to put this on wet hair to distribute it evenly; otherwise this works for my curls.

Best for curl control!
Sampled

I own and love almost all Miss Jessies products. This particular product is great...if you can get pat it's overwhelming super strong pineapple scent. Miss jessies isnt known for the great scent of their products. I'm Latina and this controls my thick curls BUT DOES NOT GET HARD!! No crispy ramen noodle curls here! It also works great for damp roller sets...You can also mix in some serum, leave in conditioner or even gel if you want a firmer dhold..its really adjustable amd a grat product tob have

I loved this cream. The smell was heavenly! I think I still need to figure out the correct amount that works with my hair, but I love that it keeps it soft and shiny! LOVE.

Curly girls rejoice!

This product is definately worth purchasing. My curls were defined, frizz free and not crunchy or greasy. I normally dont wear my hair curly but with this product I know that if I decide to go curly my hair will look great. Just be careful to not use too much product at once which might make the hair a little crunchy feeling.

Curly Meringue does the trick!
Sampled

I love how this product worked with my already wavy hair to really define the body in my hair and make me look like I did alot of styling to achieve such bounce and curl! No residue left on the hair, smells good and my hair still felt soft and newly-washed even after putting such a generous amount throughout my hair.

Yum!

I have purchased the Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding before and although it's okay, it didn't blow me away. I found the curly meringue to be awesome! The smell is delicious and pineapple-y and it really gives nice, soft, defined curls when combined with a low hold gellee. I am in a very hot humid area and found that this combination lasted pretty much all day. It does have a silicone in it, but I believe it is a water soluble silicone so I will certainly be buying he full size.
