I've been looking for a product to use on my curly hair for days when I don't have time to blow dry. I was hoping this would control the frizz and keep my curls soft and manageable all day, but I was really disappointed. First of all, the smell is totally overwhelming - the best way to describe it is moldy laundry. Second, it just felt like I had gunk in my hair and really did nothing for my curls. My hair was completely unmanageable and I ended up putting it up in a bun both times I tried the product.

It's just okay

I like Miss Jessie's products but this is not my favorite. I prefer their deep treatments like the super sweetback and the rapid recovery. I've used both of those and really enjoyed them. I liked that this product left my curls soft, but I felt that my hair was a little greasy by the end of the day. Maybe because its a lotion as opposed to a gel type product.

Not my favorite styling product
Sampled

I have used many different curling products for my wavy hair. I like the way this product dries on my hair without making it stiff and crunchy like some other curly hair products, but I don't think it does much to enhance the curliness of my hair. Definitely helps with frizz though and I like the way it smells.

Loved this product for my curls!

I loved this product! This is the softest my curls have ever felt, hands down. Unfortunately, if there's even a little bit of humidity, this cream does nothing to help. I plan on trying out their anti-frizz product to see if it works as well as their soft curl product.

Effective but not for me

I have the type of hair that used to be super curly, but over the last five years has slowly transitioned into wavy/kinky/frizzy. I am always searching for the perfect curl product... gives me good bounce, smooths, and stays working for long periods of time. I gave this product two tries, which was difficult because it was more of a serum and wanted to leak out of the sample package. The package says to "not touch your hair"until your it dries from a shower. I don't know about you, but that takes FOREVER for my hair. It left my hair quite greasy, and I only used it from about my eyes to the ends of my hair, no roots. It did make some curls however the trade off wasn't worth it for me. I won't be buying this product.

Wonderful!

I have a hard time finding products that control frizz while not making my hair crunchy. This one smelled fantastic, and it worked amazingly! I still like some body in my curly hair, and this didn't tame it so much that is was practically straight. I recommend it!

Great, but not for everyday
Sampled

I have naturally, very curly hair. I swear I have tried every product under the sun as well- this product lives up to what it said it will do. My curls were 'pillow soft'. Though, I have used this product for several days in a row and I noticed that my scalp has become irritated because of it. In addition, the smell literally smells like Fabric Softener, I am sure they use the same ingredients, but for me, I hate the smell. All in all, I will definitely consider buying this product, but not for an everyday use. I will also be sure to spray my hair with perfume before leaving the house as well! :)

My hair, like many women's, has moods. I never could quite get the curls I wanted when I wanted them, but this product certainly helps. After letter my hair dry while up in a bun overnight, I had this product to my still-damp hair in the morning, and the result is perfect. I get light, bouncy curls that last all day.

It works...kind of

I got this product in my October box. The first time I used it, I hated it! It left my hair super greasy and the smell was overpowering. I decided to give it a second shot and I liked the outcome a little more. I noticed it gave my hair more locks, which is always a nice thing. The smell is nice, but it gets to me after a while, so I use the minimal amount.

I'm still on the fence about actually buying this product. Perhaps a third use will be the deciding factor.

It makes for really soft defined curls. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is the scent, which is like dryer sheets. Other than that, it's a winner!
