Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s a cardinal curly hair rule: work with your strands, not against them. Miss Jessie’s® makes that easy with this weightless styling cream, which enhances hair’s natural bounce and shape without any heaviness. Whether your hair is naturally kinky, curly, or wavy, the moisturizing formula does away with frizz and dryness. And since it’s packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

How it Works

This light-as-air cream gets to work immediately, sealing in hydration and adding shine, while also softening and strengthening each strand. The secret to the formula is its winning combo of plant extracts, including grape seed, lavender, and chestnut. You can thank an infusion of ginger flower and lime for the fresh, sweet scent.

How to Use

Apply a tablespoon or so of the cream to damp hair, section by section. Don’t rinse out. Air dry your hair, or use a blow dryer with a diffuser for extra volume. Marvel at the amazing results.

quick curls

This product had an unpleasant odor and made my hair crunchy. The packaging also made it difficult to keep and use again. Needed to come in a tube, not a non-resealable packet.

Curly Hair Rejoice!
Sampled

Miss Jessie's knows curly hair. I have fine, curly hair and I am constantly on the look out for products that hold curl, control frizz and don't make my hair look greasy. Quick Curls does exactly that! I am on my 3rd bottle and love everything about it - there is hold, frizz control and it doesn't leave hair stiff. I must try for all curly hair girls!

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Purchased

This is an excellent product. I have been looking for a new product to replace a discontinued favorite. I think I have found it. This does not weigh my hair down or leave it feeling like I have product in it. I keeps hair soft but still holds my style.
The only thing is it is a little pricey , but I think it's worth it.

Didn't notice a difference
Sampled

I used this product as directed, on damp hair, and didn't find that it made much difference to my hair-- if anything, it felt sort of weighed down. I didn't really like the smell of the product itself, and it's so liquidy that it sort of went all over as I was applying.

Another Great Product
Purchased

This is a great product for moderately curly hair like mine. I use the pillowsoft curl product as well. This one has a fun lime scent that is very pleasant.

Could use more hold
Purchased

I really liked this product and thought it did a decent job of defining my curls and keeping the frizz down. The scent is pretty strong (lemon), and it sticks with you, but isn't as noticeable once applied to your hair. I actually liked the smell. I only wish it had a little bit more of a hold, since if you touch your hair at all, it can get a bit frizzy or the curls won't stay as tight. But that's really the only problem I had with it.

Smells good...
Sampled

...but left my hair a bit crunchy. It definitely enhanced the curl, though. Maybe if I had used less it would have been better, but I did not think i was using a particularly large amount. A bit disappointed as I love other Miss Jessie products.

Too heavy
Purchased

I was excited to get this after reading all of the positive reviews, but it was just way too heavy for my curls. It made my hair greasy. I did not use as much as they recommend on the package, and even then it was still greasy.

Not Sure About This One...

I'm in the process of learning how to work with my hair's natural wave instead of blow-drying and straightening my hair every day (which I have been doing for the last 10 years) so I ordered a sample of this product to try it out. I'm not sure if I put too much product in my hair or what, but it left it really crunchy and frizzy. The curl/wave was definitely well-developed, it was just too frizzy and crunchy. I will try it again with less product, but I really don't think this is for me.

I love Miss Jessies quick curls! This product worked great for my daughters hair! It made her hair less frizzy and really helped her curls to come out
