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. 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. And since this cream is packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

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.

Curly Q

smells great and makes my hair super soft and springy! I use this product after partially drying my naturally curly hair to control frizz. It is excellent.

Loved this product but I agree with most that it has an intense smell. Also a little on the pricey side since my hair is long and I need more product each use. would love to try more of the Miss Jessie's line!

Good Curl Cream
Sampled

I did like this curl cream, worked well with my hair (wavy, can frizz - this helped fix that). Only issue was with the packaging, it was tricky to get out and not get everywhere. A bit of an issue for getting ready on the go.

works great

This stuff is the bomb! My hair is wavy at best, but definitely not straight and it doesn't hold a curl on it's own. This stuff gives me a great easy curl each time! The sent is a little strong, be prepared - but the tradeoff for great curls is totally worth it!

Great Waves

Liked this product a lot. I usually straiten my hair so I didn't feel the need to buy a full size product but if you have curly hair you should try this!

Pretty good
SampledPurchased

Overall I like this. It helps my curls to lay nice and doesn't leave my hair crunchy. The only thing I'd say negative is the smell, it's kind of intense (like laundry detergent on steroids). I've gotten used to it, so it doesn't really bother me anymore, but the first couple of times it was really strong.

great product

This a great product. My only complaint is that it is kind of pricey and it smells like cleaning products. I always use a good-smellling prodcut with it to mask the smell I dislike.

All-time Favorite!
Purchased

Some girls with curly hair think they hate their hair, but really, they just hate their hair PRODUCTS. This curl creme is the most amazing hair product I have ever used, and the best thing is that it makes me love my curls! I apply it to damp hair at night and then in the morning I literally just shake it out a bit and walk out the door. Your hair will not be frizzy at all, and your natural curl shape will come through. It is not sticky or crunchy at all, but your curls will be nice and soft and shaped. I got my mom hooked on it too--it's the bomb!
