Not good

I love miss jessie products but I'm not a huge fan of this one. I brought it from targe for $36.00 and it was really small and not worth the price. The reason I brought the cream is because it said stretch but it didn't do that.

Not a fan

After multiple samples from this company, I am just not a fan. This creme has the same issues as the others. It weighs my hair down. No light weightless curls. It looks and feels like I didn't rinse all the conditioner out of my hair.

Silkening Creme.

I was not a fan of this silkening creme. I felt it did nothing for my hair other than make it feel greasy. I would not recommend this product.

nice product

I have to say that I like this product and it has a nice smell but it didn't work for my hair type. I have wavy, fine hair so it didn't really have any curls to loosen but i will say it did give my hair a lovely shine.

Left my hair looking greasey!

I have naturally curly hair and was really looking forward to this product. My hair looked stringy and dirty. I was not happy at all.

Didn't really work

Nice texture but didn't do much for my curls. Didn't last very long either.

Not if you want volume
Sampled

This product is very light and creates a nice, soft wave in your hair. I have thin, short hair, but I need a product that offers more volume. This product would be great if you are looking for soft, long curls, but not for tight, voluminous hair.

I was really excited to test out this product as I have curly hair and have been looking for a product that would make my curls glisten and full of life and bounce. I was actually very disappointed with this product. Although it did give my hair volume - my curly hairs does not need any extra volume as curls are already voluminous. It claims to boost shine, but the way my hair shined it looks greasy, not healthy and clean, and even though I would say my hair is generally dry, I feel like this product added grease instead of shine. Perhaps it would be better suited to someone with much more tightly wound curls because it made my curls have half the bounce and life as usual. It weighed them down a lot - so I would say that the claim that this product is great "for the full spectrum of curly textures," is not entirely accurate.
The ingredients "moisturizing oils...coconut, jojoba, avocado, and olive," see very lacking and my hair felt more dry with this product. My friend touched my hair and agreed it felt like I had sprayed my hair down with excessive hairspray.

Regarding the actual product packaging - the jar is very difficult to work with. I prefer my hair styling products to come in the form of sprays or if it is creme, it should be in a squeeze tube. Trying to get it out of the jar gets it stuck under your nails. The texture of the actual product was also not as easy to spread through a head of thick curly hair. It should be a little more creamy/watery to go in smoother.

So disappointed in this product. I guess I got it because I have curly hair, but from what I've seen online it's intended more for African American hair. It left my hair feeling weird. Not a fan.

Worst product I have ever used on my hair. Just awful. Was happy I had a hair tie to get me through the day without looking ridiculous.
