Great

I have really curly hair - and it usually frizzes right up if I don't straighten it. However, this stuff made it curl from air dry, without frizz and it didn't have the crunchy feel of mousse.

Made my hair look greasy

While I liked the smell of this product, it made my natural loose curls look oily and heavy...would no recommend for someone trying to go for a natural, soft look.

Kept my hair smooth but very curly!
Purchased

This product is really great. I have curly to wavy (long) hair, and many curl products feel very heavy or make my hair crunchy. This product is super easy to use and makes my hair smooth, bouncy, and clean. My curls aren't as tight as they are with some other products, but I love the way that looks. Highly recommend!

It's nice but...

You have to be pretty careful with application or it gets clumpy/heavy very fast (leaving sort of an oily look...). When it's applied just right, it's a nice curling enhancer to give that finished off look. It has a wonderful smell, it's just difficult for me to apply properly. Not necessarily a product issues I guess, but ease of use is helpful.

Lovely Hair Tamer
Purchased

I have curly / wavy hair that easily frizzes and gets weighed down. I LOVE this product! It feels like a cream / gel combo to me. It smooths my hair but doesn't flatten it. It's a keeper!

Hit or Miss.

No matter the size of product I put on my hands to comb through, my hair always looks extra greasy. While the product works to make make my curls gorgeous, they look a little too wet for my liking throughout the day.

Not too sticky or too sweet

If you use or have used any Miss Jessie's products, you will understand when I say that the Stretch Silkening Creme is not too sticky or too sweet, as in sweetly fragranced. The texture is not too thick or watery and thankfully, the product is not greasy.

For the texture and length of my hair, I like that it gives enough hold without making my hair feel crunchy or untouchable. A little application of this product goes a long way.

Not what I expected...
Purchased

I bought this after receiving many great reviews about Miss Jessies. This product smells good and went on great, but my hair was dry in just few short hours. I will not purchase this again.

Love Love Love it

I really love this product. I have wavy hair that can get pretty frizzy and it really makes it so smooth and just adds definition to my waves. Its so good if your lazy and love to just let your hair air dry.

I like it, don't love it

I loved the scent and how light the product was, it didn't feel like a pomade or gel but gave just enough hold on hair. I have wavy hair so I didn't really see any improvement to the styling of my hair but it was great for days when I didn't want to do any heavy styling.
