It made my hair crunchy. I was not super impressed. It may work better for people with really curly hair.

So-So
Sampled

This product was pretty good for me. I have SUPER curly hair that lost some of its curl due to bleaching. The top half of my head is much curlier than the bottom half because of the damage so I often look for products to help boost my curl. While I liked the smell, and feel of the product and it certainly did make my curls more pronounced and bouncy, my hair was lip and lifeless the next day. I can normally rock my curls for 2+ days without washing. My hair felt limp, dirty, and looked greasy the next morning.

Nice curl definition
Sampled

I really did feel that my curls were nicely defined and held their shape for longer than usual with this product. And my hair did stay quite soft as well. I have no complaints, other than I was slightly uncertain about whether this product was for all hair types or not. I saw that it was all black women on the website before and after shots, but I thought "Whatever" and used it anyway! I'm glad I did. I don't usually wear my hair curly, but if I did I would use this product in it!

Great Product
Sampled

It gets really difficult to find a product to hold curls and not leave my hair sticky! This did the trick and it smells good!

Love This Stuff
Sampled

I usually use mousse and I've been trying not to blow dry it as much. With this product, you don't have to do anything just put it in your hair and it dries with perfect wavy curls! Normally my hair gets incredibly fizzy and in stiff clumps but with this is looks totally natural. I prefer the fresh laundry smell so that was a big plus for me. I went out with some friends after using it and people were smelling my hair all night! I would definitely suggest this if your looking for a new alternative to gel or mousse.

Love this!
Sampled

I have naturally curly hair and always struggle for the right balance between luscious curls and hard sticky products. I really love how my curls feel all day with this product. The scent is a little strong at first but it wears off and you'll love catching a whiff of it through out the day. Will definitely continue to use this on my curls!!

Fantastic Product
Sampled

This left my hair soft and full. No frizz or that crunchy feeling you get with other products. I would suggest to anyone saying that it makes your hair crunch to use less or maybe you are evenly distributing it.

Not all that effective
Sampled

We all know - curly hair product is difficult to find for our specific hair because we all have different "curls." I'm more of a wavy, than a curly, but with the right product, my curls will spring to life.

This wasn't the right product. It did smell fantastic, which I appreciated. And I used it three times to get a good solid feel for it before reviewing it. I didn't think it really helped with my curls so much - it didn't really enhance them or help them keep their shape. I didn't feel like my hair was crunchy, which is a good thing! However, I can normally go 5 days or so without washing, but this product made my hair really frizzy after just a day or two, so I had to wash it or throw it up in order to tame the frizz.

I won't purchase this product for my particular curl, but it may be helpful for people with hair that is curlier than mine.

Meh...
Sampled

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.
