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!

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.

Just okay

I have really curly/frizzy hair, and I live in humid Florida. This product was not heavy enough to tame my out-of-control curls. :(

The Sweet Treat For Big, Bouncy Curls!

I love Miss Jessie's products. I have a combo of natural 3/a-3/b hair, and Miss Jessie's has never let me down! In fact, I thank Birchbox for introducing me to the line of products. The Curly Meringue is my favorite M.J.'s styler. I work it through my out of the shower hair, air dry, and my Curls are so bouncy, airy, shiny and big. Smells delicious too. I love knowing that I'm adding control and shine while moisturizing with great ingredients. This product is best for medium to course hair types. If that sounds like you and you're looking for some amazing curl care, give it a try. Two curls up.

Smells good but...

This stuff smells great, and it works to add wave without being crunchy. However, it leaves hair sticky. Sticky all day. I gave it to a friend for her birthday and she liked how it controlled her frizz and curl but when she went to the barn to feed her horses she left with hay and fuzz and dust stuck to her curls. Sadly it didn't work out for her because of that. Otherwise the curl control is great.
