Works great at defining curls while keeping them soft and bouncy and smells GREAT! A little goes a long way.

Top Quality!

MISS JESSIE'S IS THE TRUTH!!! Every product that I've tried has worked for my kinky-curly hair. The secret is in how it is applied. Keep your hair wet or very damp and smooth this beautiful stuff on. You will have gorgeous, defined curls that last and last. All Miss Jessie's products leave my hair soft and shiny.

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!

Great Curl Cream!
Purchased

I've tried dozens of curl creams.
This one is by far the best of the best! My curls stay frizz free. I use this while my hair is still wet. Then a little gel and hands off!
Also smells good. My hair is a chin lenght bob and all I use is a quarter sized dab. The Birchbox jar has lasted longer than expected. The full size jar will be worth buying.

Not for me
Sampled

This product is not for me, my hair defintely didn't feel as described. My hair felt and sounded crunchy. I had to wash my hair the same night.

Great product

Isn't too sticky and doesn't dry my hair out. Defines curls and doesn't leave build up. Love this!

Not that great
Sampled

I really enjoyed the pineapple smell of the product but felt it did nothing for my hair. I have wavy hair and even with the product my waves were not defined and were frizzy. I believe this product may work for african american hair but not other hair types.

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.
