This kept my curls up throughout the day. Messy putting in your hair (a little extra sticky). I've also used pillow soft which I love the texture for a more relaxed wave or curl. I'm excited to try others from this line.

Light gel with no silicones!
Sampled

Usually I have to pass off my Birchbox hair samples to my friends because I don't use sulfates or silicones on my naturally (very) curly hair. I was really happy to see a Miss Jessie product in my sample box, since I knew it would be a silicone, sulfate free product. I do wish that the gel had more hold; I needed to use a second product to get any real curl definition.

I liked that this gave my wavy hair more definition but it made my hair feel crunchy like an old school gel would.

Product okay

I am always trying new hair products for curly hair! I was really excited to receive this in my box but then when I tried it a few times I was disappointed in the product! I didn't feel that it really did anything for my curly hair and not to mention I thought that the smell smelt like a cleaning product!

Calling all curls
Sampled

I am a woman who has curly hair, so I am definitely into taming it. Although, I have only used this product once because I found that it does make the hair a little crunchy and also takes a while for my hair to air dry. Other than that, my curls were tamed and more defined than if I were to just put a texturizing cream.

I am black with spiral curls and I really wanted to love this product but I was disappointed. The curl turned out great but it left my hair with a crunchy feel to it and it was dry.

Nothing better than usual.

I've used this a few times but I will have to throw it out because it didn't come in resealable package. It did make my hair curly but you def need to wash your hair the next day.

So Many Compliments
Sampled

I got so many compliments on my hair when I used this product, but I felt that it really didn't have enough hold and by the end of the day, frizzies abounded.
I guess I would rather have my hair perfectly controlled rather than touchably soft.

I wasn't as impressed by this product as I had hoped to be. After reading the reviews, I just knew that I was going to come out looking like a curly-headed goddess. Unfortunately, my curls did not hold and it ended up looking like a wavy mess by the end of the day. I love you Birchbox...but I think I will stick with my cheap CVS brand gel for this one.
