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.

Amazing hold with no frizz and no "crunch" factor

I love this product. I'm a white female that has naturally curly hair. I don't mean"my hair has waves so therefor they're "curly"". No, I'm talking about ringlets. My hair texture is not coarse though but frizz is my #1 problem in a product next to products that crunch every time you hug someone.

The first time I tried it I fell in love. I put it on my hair while it's still wet from my shower and apply it in sections, making sure to pay attention to my ends. Then I comb it with a wide tooth comb, scrunch where I feel needs more encouragement and head out to work.

It seriously hold my curls all day, doesn't frizz and I don't have to hide from people that I know will grab at my hair in fear of the "crunch" or frizz.

It's a little pricey but we'll worth the money!! Promise!

I think I may have used too much or too little(not sure) but my hair my slightly sticky and poofy, not defined curls. I think I need to experiment a little more to make finally decision.

Good, but maybe not worth the $$
Purchased

I have naturally curly hair and decided to try this product in full size based on all the reviews. While the creme is good, it smells good, it has a great consistency, I am not sold on buying again. The job is done, my hair looks just fine, but, it looks just as fine as it does with a drugstore creme for less than half the price. I do use it everyday, but I only use about a nickel sized portion, so while I use it often, I am not using large quantities. I suppose I just thought for $30.00 - I would be overwhelmingly impressed with some aspect of it, and I am not.

Absolutely Amazing
Purchased

I have shorter, wavy/curly hair. In the summer, it tends to resemble a shower poof on my head. This product is amazing. Used a bit of it, and my curls are together, tame, and not one flyaway or frizz in sight. And it is holding up to a lovely humid day with rain. Also, it smells great! I wanted to use it as a body lotion if I could.

Quick curls

I was a little skeptical about using this product. I don't have naturally very curly hair. It's more on the wavy side. I usually have to use some kind of gel or mousse to bring out the curl. This product does wonders. It makes my hair so naturally curly without a ton of product. I let it air dry after applying it to my damp hair. And it smells lovely.

Great product, weird smell
Purchased

Quick Curls is light and doesn't weigh my hair down. It enhanced my natural curl and tamed frizz, and my hair looked just as good at 4pm as it did when I left the house at 6:30am. (Extra points there, Miss Jessie) I have fussy waves that don't often cooperate, so I love that this worked with my hair...no more pressure to straighten it everyday! Yay!

The only drawback is the scent. The product I received has a strong lemon scent, exactly like many kitchen and bathroom cleaners. Yuck. The first time I used it I was afraid that maybe they put the wrong product in the tube and it was some type of cleaning chemical. The scent did fade, and by the time I got to work at 8am I could no longer smell it. But, still, it was weird. I felt like I couldn't wear perfume or scented lotion because the scents wouldn't work together...and then there is the part about feeling like a walking can of lemon-scented Pledge. Awkward.

Just alright
SampledPurchased

Overall this product is just alright. I don't wear my hair naturally curly all that often so it gets the job done when I do. Some applications, I found that it worked perfectly, others I found my hair turned out incredibly greasy. The upside is that the bottle is HUGE so this will last quite a while.
