Perfection!
Purchased

I have fine, curly hair and I am always looking for great hair products. I love Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue because I can take a shower before I go to bed and revive my curl in the early morning before I go to work. It smooths away the frizzies and gives shape to my curl. Be advised, a little goes a long way!

Sassy hair makes for a good time!
Purchased

This was the first product from Miss Jessie's that I've tried. I love it. It's my go to styling product for a night out. And I love how using a little keeps the frizz at bay and adding more defines your curls into soft ringlets. I recommend always applying it damp hair, that's been lightly towel dried. If your hair is too wet, you need to apply more product. Also, if you apply too much and it's a dry day, the product will flake off of your hair and look like you walked out in a snow shower. There is a careful balance between too much and too little when you use this particular hair product.

Amazing

First off, this smells so amazing! It also did a good job of taming my frizzy hair in humid Hawaii!

So-So

This stuff works well, but is kind of goopy and not what I thought it would be. I'm not sure it's worth the money. Smells great though!

Why is this still out of stock?? :(
Purchased

My favorite curl product! I wish it smelled like the jelly soft curls (Downy scent), but I will put up with this pineapple scent for the results. Definitely holds my giant curly 'fro down.

Love this stuff!

I have very dry, coarse and unruly hair! This stuff can tame it! Of course I use a ton of other hair products, but this sets the stage. I always need a ton of moisturizing so this fits the bill! I change my routine using several products I think my hair has multiple personalities, but in general I will use this first. Then devacurl gel, coconut oil spray and a minimal hold hairspray. I don't like it crunchy and then I diffuse!

Not bad
Purchased

I think is is great for very thick and curly/wavy hair. It helps with frizziness and I usually like to let my hair air dry instead of blow drying it and this works well when I'm letting my hair air dry! It also enhances my waves!

Not right for my hair
Purchased

I have a closet full of hair products trying to find "the one" that will handle my strange hair. It will dry straight with a frizzy wave if I brush it straight wet, but will air dry in ringlets with some kind of product. My hair holds a lot of water so dries slow. This seems to keep it wetter longer, but is also a little to heavy for my hair. The smell really bother's me as well. To close to my face to smell that all the time.
