It’'s made with a healing blend of avocado, coconut, sweet almond, and olive to repair dry, damaged locks. Plus, the fresh scent is sublimely subtle enough for everyday wear.

Miss Jessie's makes awesome curly hair products, but this one is going back. Unlike the jelly soft curls (which I will delightfully continue to use) the pillow soft did nothing for my hair. Not only did it not give definition to my curls, it made my hair flat and limp (and I didn't use too much - tried it twice). Sure, there was no frizz, but it also zapped all the natural curl and body. For reference, my hair is medium thick, textured (almost coarse) and, naturally dries somewhere between big waves and ringlets, depending on its mood and the weather.

New fav

I have very very curl hair, pretty much ringlets and my hair gets frizzy very easily. I used this for the first time today after my shower on my damp hair and then let it air dry. I like the smell but it is very strong and smells exactly like a dryer sheet. So far the frizz is very tamed and my curls are drying soft. However, there is less volume but I think it makes it more manageable to wear out curly.

Perfect for taming unruly hair!

I have thick, curly hair and this product really helps tame it. It defrizzes and makes my curls very uniform in shape. I enjoyed this sample and can see myself purchasing the full-sized version in the future.

Took away the frizz, left my hair with soft curls

The smell is a little "laundry-ish" but the smell went away after my hair was dry, leaving a fresh, clean scent.

As some have suggested, I used the product sparingly (a dime-size for my thick, long, curly hair. My husband was the first to mention the lack of frizz. It definitely softened my curls without weighing them down. My hair also looks shinier. I'm definitely happy with the product.

VERY THICK

I used a quarter sizes amount and spread it through my hair. It ended up making my hair very greasy feeling and weighed down in the morning after I woke up. Probably for much coarser and thicker hair than mine

I need help.

I was SO excited when I heard this product was going to be in my box, I couldn't wait to try it! I have wavy/curly thin and fine hair. It tends to get frizzy when I let it go curly. Normally I blow dry my hair straight with a big round brush and use B&B thickening spray.
So I applied this product all over my hair generously and evenly. I used a defuser on the medium setting to dry it. When it was done, the results were similar to when I was a drugstore curly mousse cream. It was so-so. A bit frizzy.
I'm going to try it again and just let my hair air dry. I so want this product to give me dream curly hair!

My new favorite
Purchased

I received the Miss Jessie's Multicultural Curls in my June box, and really loved it. However, I felt that MC wasn't exactly what wavy, fine hair needed, so I decided to give this stuff a try. Wow, good move! It smells like fresh laundry (which is amazing), dries quickly, isn't too heavy or sticky, and gives me wonderfully curly/wavy hair without frizz. I pair it with a bit of texturizing spray and the Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper for frizz-free, soft curls/waves. Perfect for summertime!

My girl Jessie

Miss Jessie is my BFF. Every curly hair girl knows how hard it is to find the perfect product for our particular curls. This brand never disappoints. I originally got the jell and loved it. This product left my hair a little softer but much tighter curls. Can't wait for my next sample!
