Soft curls, not-so-soft smell
Sampled

So, I have fairly finicky curls. At the start of my day, my hair's pretty curly, but throughout the day the curls wilt and/or soften to waves. Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls gave me nice, defined curls, but didn't hold throughout the day as well as "crunchier" products do. I might've still been interested in the product, but it also has a really strong scent that I couldn't get used to. It had me sneezing and headachy. I was bummed, since I really wanted to like this product more than I actually did!

Almost perfect curls
Sampled

This product was almost exactly what I was looking for to give me the curly hair I want. I have trouble finding a product that amplifies the curls in my hair and keeps frizz down without weighing down my volume or making my hair feel "crunchy". This product meets all of my criteria, but I'm not sure I can get over the fabric-softener-like scent. I kept catching whiffs of it all day, and even after I washed my hair I noticed a faint hint of it. I get that it is part of the gimmick of "fresh, clean hair", but I would prefer a fresh, clean scent that doesn't so directly resemble dryer sheets.

Was disappointed...
Sampled

I was really excited to try this product after some rave reviews from friends. My hair is really curly and its hard to keep the curls soft while maintaining their shape. I felt that this creme left my hair feeling a bit heavy and crunchy... the opposite of what I expect. I am bummed out...

Pillow TOO soft??
Sampled

I am really trying to figure out how to use this product on my naturally curly hair. For reference I have fine 3A/3B chin-length hair. The concept of the product is fabulous but so far it produces overly soft curls with no hold. The smell at first whiff turned me off but upon using the product I am actually enjoying the fabric softener-esque scent. I am attempting to layer it with all kinds of different products. Still on the fence about this one!

PillowSoft- or not so

I don't feel this product provided the soft hold that similar cream gels provide and it felt very heavy.

So soft, so smelly
Sampled

The product worked OK, but the aroma was overwhelming. There was so much perfume in it I had to wash my hair again within a few hours because I couldn't stand the overpowering scent.

Curly Love

This is the first time I have heard and used Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls. I am very particular what type of product I use for my naturally curly hair, I was very pleased with this product. I had great volume and the product didn't "weigh" my curls down. There are times I use several products for the day, but I found that using this product was all I needed for the look that I wanted. The only thing I would change would be the smell (though not enough to deter me from using it). I felt I was a walking around like bathed in fabric softener. If you are a picky curly hair product user like me, I would say give this a shot and you will be pleasantly surprised.
