The brand in general makes my hair dry out, still on the fence about this product.

I have curly hair tinged with gray so my curls tend to be frizzy. This product tamed the frizz and made my curls defined - all without the heaviness and crunchiness of other curling products. I will be buying!

Meh

Not great. I have long, long curly hair and it really didn't do much of anything.

I have tried NUMEROUS different types of products for curly hair. I have thick, curly, frizzy hair that I have been trying to tame. I was super excited to try this product. The hold is a little too soft for me, doesn't quite tame my curls. I won't be ordering, however I am glad I found the company Miss Jessie's because I am ordering one of their other products that they advertise as having a medium hold.

I was excited to get this product in my box, because I have wavy/curly hair and am always looking for a good new product. I use finishing cream now and it works great, but was happy to try this soft finish gel. It smelled pretty bad, but I kept at it. When my hair dried, the gel seemed to have little to no effect. Will stick to what I use.

Stop with the foil packets!
Sampled

This product works OK- it's not the best I have tried, but it does do an effective job of keeping my hair curly, soft, and frizz-free. It makes my hair sort of oily and weighed down by the days end though, which I hate. I would prefer to use other products that have the same benefits without the weird oily aftermath. Also, the sample size was amazing and huge, but it came in a horrible foil pack that is messy and annoying. I had to put it into another container to use it so it wouldn't leak everywhere.

Curly Girl Unimpressed

I always have high hopes for products geared toward curly girls as a proud owner of an unruly mane. I have tried lots of products and while I was pleased this product didn't leave my hair feeling crunchy, it was still pretty frizzy. Perhaps I should have used more, but when it was damp it felt quite coated. After I got to work and it dried a bit, I was sorry to see it wasn't holding up as well as I had hoped. I only tried it once and I will probably risk another day just to be sure. I would definitely be open to trying more of their products, but at the moment, I am not sold.

Soft, Yes. Less Frizz, No.

This product certainly produces soft curls and no crunch. What this product does not do is eliminate frizz and hold the curls all day as well as the "crunchy" products. I'm a Tresemme mousse devotee and was willing to try Miss Jessie's. I'll take the crunch if it means no frizz and all day hold. I also did not appreciate the way the gel felt in my hands...the texture makes it rather difficult to apply.

Ok

I don't use this for every day wear because it makes my hair heavy, but I live in a humid area where it can rain a lot and this holds my curls really well when the air is damp. A little too heavy for every day, but when you need a heavy hold, this does a great job.

Disappointed
Sampled

I was REALLY excited to try this since I'm always looking for products to help my curls retain their shape however I was very upset with the outcome upon using this product. It did not do a good job shaping my curls...my Aveda product does a better job. I followed the instructions exactly and plan to try again altering the steps a little. Hopefully next time the outcome is better...
