I like the smell of fabric softener a lot, so I don't mind this smell theoretically. But it's pretty strong, is right next to my face, and does not dissipate at all throughout the day. It got to be too much, even for me, at some point.

I have wavy hair, not overly curly. It didn't do a whole lot for me. Less frizz for sure. However, it takes a long time to air dry with this in my hair, and it looks a little greasy.

Not absolutely awful, but I won't be using it.

In terms of the sample --- I can't stand foil packets. What am i supposed to do with an open foil packet of pretty much a liquid sample? where do i store that? it's just messy and annoying to me. A small little plastic bottle would be better AND RECYCLABLE.

Love the smell, love how it works!

I understand how some folks might not love the smell, but I actually find it really awesome. A note of caution - when they say to use a "generous" amount, err on the side of not so generous. I have pretty thick, long hair and I find that just a quarter sized amount works just perfectly. Otherwise, you will wind up with slightly crunchy hair and that's exactly the opposite of what this product advertises.

Smells Great. Works Great.

I love the "dryer sheet" smell of Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls. It's very fresh and clean. I was really surprised at how well it worked for me when I used it for the first time through a Birchbox sample. I have naturally wavy, long hair. My waves are not always that pretty and areas of my hair just frizz. With Miss Jessie's, the frizz went away! Admittedly, I don't use it much in the winter because my hair doesn't naturally curl up as well. I prefer to use it in the summer when I can air dry my hair and take advantage of the humidity!

Not for me...

I have wavy hair so I was hoping this would boost my natural wave and make my hair soft. Instead, my hair felt almost crunchy. The smell is a little soapy but I liked it, it wasn't too strong.

curls without frizz

this is a wonderful curl cream. it kept my frizz under control without removing the body, like a lot of heavy hair creams. my hair feels healthy and looks healthy too.

I have very tight curls that tend to look frizzy. This product made my curls longer and softer looking. I highly recommend this to all curly headed girlies.

Not for me

I do not have curly hair. I have really straight and fine hair so this wouldn't do a thing for me.

crunchy hair

Maybe I used too much of the product but it left my hair feeling kind of crunchy. Also, you can get a free sample of this directly from their website.

A scent shy of a win
Sampled

I really liked what this product did to my hair. It made my curls very soft and bouncy but I seriously felt like I washed my hair at the laundromat with it's scent. I get it, "pillow soft curls," but I don't want to smell like fabric softener all day long. My friends even noticed! Ah, just fix the scent and I will buy.
