This product left my hair super greasy and crunchy - not sure how that's possible, but I was not impressed.

I was only able to get 1.5 uses out of this product. Was not happy with the end results. My hair was super frizzy and looked like I had done nothing to it. Was not impressed with the smell of the product.

AAAGGGGHHHHHHHHH!

I was looking forward to trying this sample. I've had heard of Miss Jessie and thought I would be given piece of heaven for my curls.
I have very curly hair that are for the most part dry, no matter how much I look after them. Especially with a lifestyle of salt water pool and family swims.
But and because of this, I brought Miss Jessie with me to the showers at the gym to try for the first time. That is how much I trusted this was going to be a life saver.
Well it wasn't. The thing was sticky, Left my hear sticking to my body and clothes and worse of all, when dry I felt like I had a mop on my head.
I thought well maybe I didn't use it correctly. I tried again: same results. The second time I tried using less. Still, the mop...
In all I used it 4 times. FOUR tries. All with the same result. I ended up throwing it away.

Disappointed
Sampled

As a kinky haired person I have always been on the search for great products that can hold my natural curl all day. I have seen this brand on the shelves but could never bring myself to splurge that much on my hair products. I tried the product out and found that it was like putting some water on my hair. My hair poofed to an Afro puff.

Not loving it
Purchased

I have long, thick loose curly hair. I'm always looking for products to keep my hair looking good. I did a lot of research before purchasing this product. I'm not pleased. It's not preventing fizz. My hair looks big and not curly. I can't use the product on its own. I have to pair it with a mousse that I already own to help manage the frizz. I doubt I'll purchase this product again.

This gel left my hair crunchy and far from curly. Its just not a good, well thought out product.

Soft=frizzy?

This hair product does have a fun appeal, but in reality it made my moderately curly hair even frizzier than when I let my hair air dry with zero product.

Not for me

I had I hopes when I got this product. It dried out my hair and it frizzed. I never had a gel dry my hair out like this. Usually they have too many silicones.

Not effective!

I was really disappointed with sample. I followed the directions on the back of the sample and it made my hair less curly than it usually is! I have naturally curly hair. After using this my hair was actually straighter than it usually was. Totally ineffective!

Frizz nightmare!

I could not leave the house after using this product because my hair was so frizzy. It did absolutely nothing, and I used the whole sample. I had to wash my hair again. Horrible product!
