Mostly happy

I got this product in my October box. I have received other Miss Jessie products, but have yet to use them. I saw that this was a styling product, and I am always trying new products for my naturally curly hair, so I was excited to try it out.

I like that it is a cream, and not a gel. I can't stand gels because they leave my hair feeling dry and crunchy. Once I started working the product through my hair, I immediately noticed the smell. I didn't care for it. But I've used products in the past with a smell I didn't care for because I liked the way it worked with my hair.

I noticed that it took my hair forever to dry after using this. Even with a blow dryer, it was still damp for a while after putting it in my hair. I didn't like that aspect.

Now that it is fully dry, I will say that I like how soft my hair is and also how much volume this stuff added to my hair. It feels and looks fuller and thicker. I only gave this three stars because of the smell, the size of the sample (I wish I could get more than maybe two uses out of it), and mostly, beacuse of how long it took to dry. But for the most part, I was happy with the product.

Smells STRONG
Sampled

I was really excited to try this stuff out since it has really great reviews and I have naturally curly-wavy hair. I am so glad I didn't spend $20 bucks on this stuff since it would have been immediatly returned. This product made my hair smell like stright up fabric softener and it was so strong it about made me sick. It's all I could smell that night when I went to bed and again the next morning. The curling aspect was okay, but no different from my Dove curling creme I already use at half the cost. If you are sensitive to strong smells (which I am usually not) DO NOT PURCHASE. I used it that one time and threw the huge pouch of the rest of my sample out.

Very soft curls
Sampled

My curls haven't felt like this in years, I feel like I may have finally found a product that doesn't make my hair crunchy and wet looking.

Great after hair treatment
Sampled

Great after conditioning product, leaves curls soft and bouncey. I used this sample on myself and my almost 2yr old. It works so great on her hair, as well as mine.

Today was my first time using this product and I absolutely LOVE it! I'm always in search of a different kind of curling cream to make my hair look less "crunchy" and more "nobody puts baby in the corner". This is the first curling cream I have found that not only creates bouncy defined curls but it also smells really good. Try this stuff, you won't be disappointed. Worth every bit of the $22 pricetag.

Smells great!!
Sampled

I had previously received a miss Jessie sample in another bb. It was the meringue one, while that product did help with my curls it smelled horrible! my So bad my husband commented on it. This product though WOW smells great and works wonders!!! I got to uses out of the sample and i have long mid back curly hair. The curls held through the day even while the weather was humid and rainy. Received multiple compliments and even gave out brand info to another curly haired admirer.

Works Great - Smells Horrible!
Sampled

I was excited to finally try this product - though I can't stand foil packs. This product makes my curls look light and feel soft. However, all of the good is completely outweighed by the horrible smell. It is like Downey fabric softener intensified. It makes my stomach ache - and I love scents!!! The scent is so strong my hubby politely asked me to take another shower :-/ If this came in unscented I would be all over it.

LOVE

I have contemplated purchasing this product multiple times while browsing the birchbox shop, but didn't know if I would like it. Turns out, I LOVE it! It makes my hair so soft and not crunchy like most curl gels do. Will definitely be buying the full size.

Ugh

I absolutely HATE this product. It literally smells and feels like Downy softener. Not what I want to have in my hair. I use a nickel sized amount for my medium length hair and it feels chalky once dry. I would recommend the Jelly Soft Curls instead.

I really liked this product. It smells nice and it works. I like it as much as I like my Deva Curls' product. Right now I still have a ton of that but it the future I would definitely consider purchasing Miss Jessie's.
