Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

Miss Jessie’'s® is known as “"The Proven Expert in Curls”" for a reason, —and when it comes to managing our curly hair (which often seems to have a mind of its own), we could certainly use a dash of expertise. This cult favorite is specifically formulated to leave hair supersoft and crunch-free, while delivering enough hold and definition to keep frizz at bay on even the most humid summer days. Bonus: The gentle gel won’'t affect any chemical treatments.

How to Use

After cleansing, conditioning, and detangling hair, distribute a capful or more of product through damp (not wet) curls. Let air-dry, or use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer for soft, defined spirals.

Now that's what I'm talking about. What a great gel. This product is amazing. Light, no flakes, no greasy hair gel. Wonderful product.

Not for me
Sampled

I have wavy/curly hair, not too thin or thick, and this did nothing for it. I generally only use a leave-in conditioner and let my hair air-dry, and unfortunately this product felt like it weighed down my curls.

Jelly soft curls
Purchased

At first was skeptical, tried it. When it dried it was slightly itchy where it had gotten on my scalp. Wasn't that great taming my frizz. I'll finish using what I've received, more than likely will not reorder.

Hate the Smell

This smells like diaper wipes! My curls looked fine but I wasn't blown away. A little too sticky for my taste.

I got this for my mom and gave it try as well. Holds great and doesn't have that crunchy gel feel that everyone hates!

This is a great product. Really defines and shapes my hard to tame curls. Not crunchy and doesn't weigh hair down. I highly recommend this product!

ADORE THIS PRODUCT
SampledPurchased

I have struggled to find a product that doesn't leave my hair crunchy and greasy. Well this is it!! It also holds the curls so well. This gel is a dream. I would only recommend it if you use a diffuser, or else it will be crunchy.

Left hair soft but a little greasy

This product feels nice and is easy to apply. My hair felt nice and soft and didn't look frizzy, but I think my curls need a little more hold. By the end of the day I noticed that my hair was a little bit greasy looking.

Frizzy by the end of the day!
Purchased

I so wanted to love this product. I purchased the full-sized product. It had a nice smell, kind of like a calmer version of fabric softener. When I style my hair in the morning, I'd give it 5 stars. My curls are really pretty! No crunch, bouncy and weightless. By the middle of the day? Super frizzy!!!! And it goes downhill from there. :(
