On the fence

I'm on the fence about this product. This gel definitely left my hair feeling soft, which I LOVE. However, my wavy hair had lost its curl throughout the day and I seem to have to use more and more product everyday. On the plus side, it doesn't leave my hair feeling greasy.

good product, but left fine hair limp and oily

My hair isn't really curly; it's more wavy and prone to frizz. However, I really liked the way this product worked...for about the first 12 hours. Even though I had to use a good size amount (a little less than a size of quarter for my shoulder length hair), it didn't make my hair stiff. The curls felt really nice, and I liked the smell (my boyfriend swears it made me smell like fresh waffles...a good thing :) I guess!) The only thing is it made my hair very limp and oily. I tried using the product in different ways: using less product overall, putting it only on the ends of my hair, etc. but nothing seemed to change the outcome. I guess my hair is just too fine.

Soft-ish waves

I don't think my hair is curly enough for this product. Mine is sort-of a frizzy/wavy texture. It would probably be great for people with nice curly hair. The smell is great though.

Too Much

These products seem to only be good on a specific type of hair texture....one that is not mine.

Ehh

This is only ok. I usually straighten my hair instead of keeping it curly so this product doesn't really help me.

It's okay

My hair is still turned hard like it does with most gels. Honestly there is nothing special about this product. It is just like every other gel offered.

Curls and Leaves Hair Soft

When I say another Miss Jessie's product in my box this month, at first I was annoyed -but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The gel does not smell strong like the other products from this brand, and leaves hair soft and manageable when dry. I would buy this in the future for sure.

Wanted to be Wowed, but Disappointed

I wanted to be wowed by this product. I struggle with my naturally wavy, but not quite curly hair which needs to be styled daily to look good either straight or curly. However, I didn't feel like this was any better than the Garnier Fructis Curl creme gel I usually use at half the cost.

'Jelly' is right...

I didn't like it... It was basically an over priced hair gel. Seeing as I don't use hair gel EVER, I won't be purchasing. However, might be great for someone who likes that kinda thing.
