Bubblegum
Sampled

I didn't like the strong bubblegum scent of this product. It did leave my hair feeling soft, even though I didn't leave it in for the full 30 minutes.

Not for me
Sampled

It's definitely moisturizing, but a little too much for my hair. I wouldn't be able to use this before leaving the house. I felt like I had to wash my hair again.

Works for a couple of days
Sampled

This treatment was effective for a couple of days; it left my curly hair soft and manageable. However; the effects were gone after 2/3 days of the treatment. Perhaps using this product over time would be effective.

Love Ms. Jessie's
Sampled

I'm a huge Ms. Jessie's fans and own several of the company's products. This one was fun, and felt amazing in my hair, though I'm not sure it's worth the price as it did not seem to do much to improve the quality. Perhaps I would have noticed a difference if it had been a larger sample? The sample size, since the directions call for a "golf ball size" amount of product per use, was only for one wash. May have seen a more obvious change over time but not willing to spend that much money on product I'm not sure works long term.

I liked it, and did see a difference in my hair, however other products have a greater effect on my hair.

Okay hair product, just needed more in sample
Sampled

I could not quite tell if this product worked because there was not enough in the sample size to totally coat my hair. I think that overtime it would work better but I would not risk spending the money to find out it didn't.

I liked it, but the sample was too small!
Sampled

I liked the smell of the product, and it did seem to leave my hair pretty silky afterwards! I didn't notice it feeling weighed down at all, and it seemed to help with the overall frizziness too. May have a been a coincidence, but I had an amazing hair day the first day I tried this! Unfortunately, the sample size was a little small - I have very fine, thin hair and I still only got 2 uses out of the sample.

Sickly Sweet Smell
Sampled

I now know why Miss Jessie labeled this product "Sweetback". This product is sickly "sweet" and takes you "back" to your childhood with it's bubblegum-cotton candy fragrance. After rinsing my hair, I could smell chemicals, which lingered for hours. Once my hair dried, it was even more frizzy than before using this product. As for how well it works growing out hair, I cannot tell because the sample was for one use only. Not impressed.
