Not too shabby!

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!

Rocking this product
Sampled

I was hesitant to try this product since I am loyal to Be Curly by Aveda, but I am glad I did! The product smells good and has a good texture. It did not leave my hair sticky or hard instead it gave my hair a beautiful bounce and kept my curls in place even the day after applying this product. I am a convert and will continue to use this product.

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.

This is the best product I have ever tried for my hair. My hair is so soft and the curls are very defined and beautiful.

Curl Perfection
Sampled

The sample size is the PERFECT size. It's large enough for more than one use and small enough for it to fit in my purse. The product left my curls tamed and soft (not crunchy, sticky, or greasy looking like most other curl creams). Plus, it smells delicious.

type 3c
Sampled

I have type 3C hair and this was great!! I used the recommended amount and it left my hair with big, bouncy curls but with no stiffness. Great hold, even in the wind. I personally like the smell but a friend smelled it and thought it was too pineapple-ish/sun tan lotion. I think it's sweet and summery!

No real difference
Sampled

I have heard raves about Miss Jessie products so I was excited to see this product in my birchbox. I have ringlet curls that are fizzy and not well defined. I didnt see any difference after using this product with the exception of a few ringlets being a bit tighter. My hair was still as frizzy as can be.

Love this stuff!
Sampled

I have a huge love/hate relationship with my hair, it's thick, curly/frizzy...so when I say I have tried everything...trust me, I have! When I saw this in my bb this month, I was like...cool, one more hair product that probably won't work. I tried it though and I loved this sample! Perfect weight, not too heavy on the hair, smells devine (!), and you get beautiful curls. Highly recommended.

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!
