I love the scent of the shampoo and conditioner, but after I saw how much product was required to clean my hair (thick and slightly longer than shoulder-length, it normally needs a dime-sized dollop of shampoo and conditioner, and not even that much of Miss Jessie's Jelly Soft), I wasn't so impressed. I tried using a third of the sample, but it just didn't cut it. I used ALL OF IT in the shower. Assuming the gel was also sampled on the same scale, I used all of that, too, and ew and ugh. Maybe if I'd used just a tiny bit, my hair wouldn't be dry, crunchy, and gross. It is holding the curl well, though, and even waved up some of my straight strands. But Miss Jessie's does the same and doesn't make me feel like I need another shower. Blech.
Also, the gel is also scented, but I'm not fond of it. Smells like chemicals. This one's definitely not for me.
