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.

This product is pretty good. I can't wait to try it with pillow soft curls.

Yum!
Sampled

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.

Sister's Opinion -- Works Well
Sampled

I have bone straight hair but both of my sisters and my mom have naturally curly hair and so I had them try this product. Both my sister and my mom said that this was good at calming the frizz and with defining the curls. My sister recommends using slightly more than the directions suggest to keep the frizz from taking over.

Great Product
Sampled

This product works quite well. I'm Hispanic, and my hair is normally more wavy than curly, but since I've recently cut it short, my hair has looked curlier. Using this product after showering has helped give those curls more definition and bounce. I also love the smell - kinda like lemon custard! Just be sure not to use too much, as it will make your hair look slick and feel crunchy. If you use only a small amount, you'll notice some better results!

Good Product

The sample is is really nice. I will probably get 2 more uses out it which will make it 4 total. And that should give me a good idea of how well the product works so I'll know if I will buy it.

Not too shabby!
Sampled

Today was my first day using this product. I have very wavy-curly hair, depending on how much I brush through my curls when hair is wet. While I can't say that it eliminated all of my frizz, I do love how light and soft my hair feels! (Versus heavy, crunchy or greasy with other products.) I will try using a bit more product next time and see if it better tames the frizz. I don't care so much for the scent, but it doesn't seem to smell after drying on my hair, so I'm happy about that! Overall, pretty good!

Loving Miss Jessie's Products
Sampled

So this hte one item I was the most excited about. I have seen this brand at Target and have thought about buying it but I didn't want to spend the money in case I didn't like it. I was thrilled to open up my birchbox and find it. It smells good enough to eat and I love the thick texture. I am Hispanic with wavy hair and I am always trying new curling creams. This one is defintly one htat I would recommend that people try. My only advice is that you need to use rather then less or else your hair might still be frizzy.

Light and Subtle
Sampled

I have what they would describe as "ethnic" hair, frizzy, extremly curly, and it took me years to find a hair style that not only was easy to tame but make me feel attractive as well, but twist and twist outs work for me.

I received this sample in my birchbox the day before i planned on working on my hair

Having what they call a natural ethnic hairstyle their aren't a lot of hair products that i can try or use that will work well with the thick curly hair that i often deal with.

I immediatley saw the diffrence this product did to my hair. Incredible! my hair was instantly softened, easy to manage and even made my hair fall differently.

For those of you who work with twists, I know the fear you may have, will it take away my curls ,the texture?

No I had the same fear, twists require a certain hold to maintian the hair stlye, and this product allows it to be easier and look just as good.

I think I found a new product just for me!
