Just okay for me
Sampled

I already have very soft curly hair anyway, and what I really need is something to provide definition not something to make it softer, so in the case with Miss Jessie's I just don't think it's a good match for my hair type. I do love that you guys sent me Devacurl one month and then this the following month so I could compare!

Great Product, Just Not For Me
Sampled

I really enjoyed using this product. It smells terrific, like laundry, which doesn't sound as appealing as it actual it. However, if I combed my hair any time after it air dries the effects of the gel are gone. I'm not sure if that's because you're not recommended to comb your hair while using this, I don't have the right hair for it, or I'm simply not following the directions as carefully as I thought I was, it just simply doesn't do anything if I comb my hair which I do regularly. Because of this, I will not repurchase this product.

Good For a Gel
Sampled

This stuff is pretty good for a gel. It doesn't leave my hair crunchy and it does curl well. However, the Miss Jesse's Curl cream works much better. I think I'll be sticking with that.

Miss Jessie's is good stuff
Sampled

This product was okay, prefer the pillow soft curls but all Miss Jessie's products are legit. Not a huge fan of this type of sample packaging...as a general sample comment, but at least it was large enough to try more than once.

quantity>quality
Sampled

I got a good amount of product in the sample - often a problem because I have a ton of hair. but I just didn't like how it made my hair feel.

wanted to love it as much as everyone else did
Sampled

Maybe I just can't expect miracles from my hair... it in fact WAS crunchy for the first few hours (and very hard to apply, very very thick - like old school DEP), and I probably didn't distribute it evenly. It's a very hot, humid day in New York and I wish I could say that my curls were holding up to it.... I will give it another try, though.

Too heavy
Sampled

I have curly hair, but it's short, so this product may have been too heavy.

Frizzy, but defined curls

I have pretty temperamental curly hair, so I'm definitely willing to give this another go. It was absolutely crunch-free and soft as promised, but it wasn't strong enough to contain the frizz. I'm hoping another go around will produce better results. I did like how defined my curls were, though! Big ringlets instead of the usual smaller ones!

only ok

I have medium thick, curly/wavy hair that can be coxed into ringlets with the right product. Unfortunately, this is not it. Despite the other wonderful reviews, I found this gel to be drying and did nothing to decrease frizz. I might try the cream, but I can't recommend the gel until you have very curly hair.

Jelly Curls

It smells good, and it doesn't leave a crunch to your hair like hair gel does. But it doesn't prevent frizz.
