simply the best!!!!

This is simply the best product ever for curly hair. I use a small (nickel size) amount and comb through evenly. I then scrunch and air dry my hair. My curls are soft and bouncy all day. My curls never look sticky or gel like hard. I will never use anything else for my curly hair.

Swear by this stuff!
Sampled

I have been a big believer in Miss Jessie's products since my first sample of Pillow Soft Curls. I am confident that these products work on EVERY type of curly hair - no matter the texture. Like many girls with curly hair I am always trying to tame it and go through phases where I am always naturally curly or always styled. I really like using these products and knowing that I can let my curls go on their own and know they will look perfectly tamed and can show off their curly potential. I know some people complain about the fabric softener smell but I like it and so does my husband. It is the strongest when you first put it on but the smell fades and doesn't smell any stronger than clean clothes. It really leaves my curls SO soft and bouncy -- not crunchy or sticky or weighed down. I would recommend EVERY girl with curly hair giving this a try.

AMAZING

I got this and didnt think it would do much but oh my it did. I wash my hair before bed and then put a generous amount of this in my hair, scrunch it, and then put it in a bun. The next morning i have amazing curls. the only downside is that it leaves a lot of residue so that night or the next morning you will want to wash your hair. thats why i give it four stars instead of five.

MOST AMAZING THING EVER!!!

This is the best product out there if you are looking for that wavy curl that you normally don't receive. It gives you the curl without the gel and hardness after applying to your hair. I recommend this to everyone out there that wants to get that beach wave in their hair or on a rainy day when there is no point in doing your hair , you can hop out of the shower put a dime size drop in the palm of your hand and apply through your hair and you are good to go!

Great product for the Florida humidity
Sampled

I have tried almost EVERY product in the big-box stores for my wavy/curly hair. I like to straighten it when the weather allows BUT when the Florida heat and humidity kicks in I just can't fight the curl! I got this as a sample and I fell in love. I think it smells like Downy fabric softener. Compared to the other chemical-smell stuff I've used, that's a good thing. A few details: I have fine, medium length blonde hair. (Fine, but I have a lof of it and it's heavy) It holds curl very well but tends to frizz. With this product I use a dab or two when it's wet, let it dry on it's own, then touch up with the hair dryer as needed. Works great with the diffuser if I'm in a hurry. Not greasy, crunchy or heavy. Love the smell.

Excellent!
Purchased

I purchased this product for my 13 yr old daughter who has long thick curly hair. We have tried many products searching for the right one and this one is awesome! She is now able to wear her hair down and is getting tons of compliments! Shapes her curls without crunch, stickiness or heaviness. Controls the frizz all day!

Tames my hair without the heavy product feel
Purchased

I have thin curly hair and this is my favorite product for when I wear my hair curly. I don't have to use a lot and it goes on light and leaves no residue or crunchy mess behind. It does have a perfume-like smell that a lot of people have commented on but the smell fades pretty quickly and honestly, I'll accept a little perfume smell in the morning while I'm getting ready if my hair can stay curly and tame all day without looking weighed down by products.

Works best when using rollers
Purchased

I've found this works best if you use rollers overnight versus using before drying with a diffuser. I ended up giving this to my Mom - who has coarse, wavy hair - and it did wonders for her. For my mostly straight, thick hair this was okay but not terrific, unless I used rollers.

It also smells like laundry dryer sheets. I liked it, but my partner thought it smelled strange.
