I was disappointed in the size and cost when I found it at target the next week after buying it her. I had to use a lot of the product mixed with others to get it to work.

Definitely buy!

This worked wonders on my hair! I completely loved the smell, the texture of its is weird but then again I've never used anything like this.

Smells Wonderful
Purchased

I had hoped this would be more like a leave in conditioner, but it's a thick cream. I use this after shampoo/conditioning my hair and was amazed by how soft and shiny my hair was. I use it on my kiddos too who have curly thick hair and it works beautifully!

A little on the heavy side

This product kept the fizz at bay, but was a little thick and heavy for everyday use. Definitely use with a light hand

Best Ever for Wavy Hair!
Purchased

I've tried sooooo many products for my wavy-curly hair. Gels are too crunchy, cremes are too heavy; some mousses work well, but don't take care of the frizz. Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue takes the cake!! As thick as it is, it doesn't weigh my hair down and makes my curls super defined and bouncy! My only wish is that it came in a scent other than pineapple, but fortunately, it dissipates after drying. I've tried Jelly Soft Curls, Pillow Soft Curls, and the Creme de La Creme Conditioner and so far, have found the meringue and the conditioner to be the best! I am looking forward to trying more of their products soon!

Curls for days!
Purchased

I like this product and am still figuring out the best way to apply it. It's very thick and doesn't spread easily. However, once I work it in it seems to really enhance my curls.

Great hold
Purchased

If I am setting my hair and want to keep fly-aways at bay, I use this product. Smells like pineapple to me and its very creamy. A little goes a long way!

Weighed down curls
Purchased

For my particular curl type, corkscrew, this is too heavy and weighs my hair down. I feel like I can't quite wash it out with my non-lather shampoo. Nice smell though.

A little goes a LONG way
Purchased

I used as little as I could because I know that Miss Jessie's products can be very thick and heavy, but I had no problem with this. The pineapple scent is heavy but heavenly, and my hair (long overdue for a shaping and very damaged) was voluminous and curlier, but I just paused in writing this review to run my fingers through my hair, and they didn't snag once. I want every one of my curly-haired friends to own this, but I don't want to share!

Nice product
Purchased

I was hesitant to try this product but once I sampled it, I had to buy the full size product. My hair is really big and frizzy so this is perfect for holding it into place and allowing me to where my style longer than 1 or 2 days.
