Meh...

I was excited about this product at first but it didn't really do much for my hair. I love when my hair is bouncy and springy and I was really hoping this would add shine and remove frizz, but it just ended up weighing my hair down and not doing much else. I don't really want to stretch my curls - I want to enhance them! I really did like the scent, though. It's pretty nice.

I have found other smoothing/silkening products that smell better and do a better job than this one.

Crunchy Hair

I liked the feel and smell of this product but as my hair was air drying I found that it weighed my hair down and left it crunchy when it dried. I did not like the feel of my hair with this product.

Not for my hair type
Sampled

I have very fine, wavy blonde hair, and I think this is for someone with coarse, curly hair. I rubbed a little dab of it over my hair when it was dry and all it did was weight it down. Not saying this is a bad product, just not for me. I think I'll give it to my friend who has very thick curly hair. I did see they sell the full-size version of this at Target for $38.

Maybe better for tighter curls
Sampled

I have fairly loose curls, not thick, and beyond shoulder length hair. I used the 2 tbsp the product recommended and it left my hair feeling very weighed-down and with a not quite greasy-sticky feeling, mostly felt like too much product. I used less again, and that was better, but my hair still felt like product was in it, and I had less defined curls. I think that this might be a really good product for someone with dry, tighter curls.

Not so much...

I have curly hair, but every time I let it air dry it gets SO frizzy, so I was really excited when I received this in my birchbox. I used it exactly as directed, however, I used a little less than the amount advised because I have a medium length bob cut. I let my hair air dry before going to work and it was definitely not frizzy or wild... it was SO GREASY. It looked like I had washed my hair in bacon grease. Not cute at all. I will be trying it one more time before completely throwing it away, this time using even less... I would say to definitely use a smaller amount and avoid your roots at ALL COSTS. It also has a pretty strong, over-bearing floral-y scent.

Not for me

Maybe I'm missing the point of this product but it just does not work for my hair. My hair looks the same when I use the product as when I don't. I guess it's not for everyone so I won't be purchasing this product. However, it's a great sample size and the smell/texture are really worthy of mentioning.

Sad w/ the Outcome
Sampled

I have wavy frizzy hair and was hoping the Miss Jessie's Original Silkening Creme would help define my waves/curls. Unfortunately it did nothing but weigh it down. My mother put it best when she said "it just looks like your hair got wet in the rain". I was really looking forward to it working! :(

This product confused me. It claims its "curl enhancing" but that it also stretches out curls. I have naturally curly hair and it did nothing to enhance my curls, but it did stretch them out - in a bad way. I applied the product after shampooing and dried with a blow dryer and diffuser. It left my hair looking like I had curled it with a curling iron, but the curls were falling out.
