As a woman with fine, naturally curly hair, I am a fan of Miss Jessie's products so I was excited to try the Pillow Soft Curls sample! I was disappointed however because when I tried it, the look I got reminded me of when I used to use mousse in my hair.

I applied the product when my hair was wet and let it air dry (this usually leaves me with the most luxurious curls). After my hair was dry it looked a little stiff and so then I mussed with the curls a little to soften it up, but it didn't really help too much.

I will go back to using Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding, since that seems to work best for my curls so far!!

Tough for frizzy hair
Sampled

I have coarse, frizzy hair that is usually difficult to tame. This product did not leave my curls poof-free. I could not use this as an apply-and-go product like I was hoping.

So Much Better Than Gel
Sampled

I have very curly hair and I always hated using gel because of the crunchy way it would set my hair. I hate to let my hair air dry so I almost always use a hair dryer and a diffuser. A trick I use is after my hair is done drying I take a dime size amount in my palm mix it with a bit of water and run my hands through my hair to get rid of any friz that might still be there.

The price of amazing curls...
Sampled

I love the way my curls look with this product. The only problem is the smell is so strong I get a headache for the first 2 hours of having it on my hair. I've solved this by putting it on right before bed and waking up to amazing hair! The smell is much more manageable if you apply it the night before. I was never able to wake up and go without washing my hair before. This product gives me nice, defined, soft curls that aren't crunchy. Fix the strong scent and this product would be worth every penny!

Great for curls!
Sampled

If not for the gross smell of this product, I would be in love. My curls have not looked this good in awhile--it's a perfect hold without any crunch or stickiness. I just couldn't get past the smell, though. Think cleaning product meets stale perfume.

I've tried many products for curly hair and this is one of the best! The smell is fantastic and the product isn't too heavy. Made my curls soft and bouncy! Will recommend to all of my curly haired friends!

soft

This product has a nice, clean smell. I used it on damp hair and let it air dry. It didn't reduce frizz at all, but I LOVE the way it makes my hair feel for days! So smooth and soft. I will continue using it as a leave-in!

Undecided

I purchased this as a buy one get one free after reading all the rave reviews, honestly it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It definitely helps me to not wake up with a fro every morning, but as far as defining my curls, not so much. Felt a little greasy too. Maybe I'm just not applying it correctly? I even tried it with a blowdryer as suggested, was even more disappointed.

Not my favorite sample

I got this in my birchbox a few months ago and haven't had a chance to try it until last night... I don't like the scent at all (way too strong) and though my hair was super curly when I woke up this morning it was not "pillow soft", instead it was crunchy and greasy at the same time. I was pretty diasppointed because I had to put my hair up in a messy bun for work today.
