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.

Good, but was expecting greatness
Purchased

I have naturally curly, fairly fine, brown hair. I was really wanting this to be the last product I tried. But, as I should have figured by now, there is no prefect product. My hair still gets frizzy and doesn't stay together. I have found it better used as a cream after my mousse, and after my hair has dried most of the way.
Does leave things nice and soft, but curls don't stay defined for me.

Like it not Love it
Purchased

I bought this because I have natural cure hair and only used it twice but not sure if I applied too much or too little. I will keep you posted but for now let's just say that I'm obviously going to use it because I paid $ but if you can give pointers on application that would be great!!

Great for curls but not enough hold to prevent frizzies
Purchased

I really love Miss Jessie's Quick Curl and wanted to try a different product to see if I could get more definiteion to my curls. I have boingy-type curls that frizz up in summer (I am caucasian) The Curly Meringue didn't do what I wanted - maybe I could mix it with the Quick Curl.

It's pretty good
Purchased

I have naturally curly hair. I don't have tight ringlets.
This product makes my hair soft but it does not provide a ton of control.

great product for curly hair
Purchased

My daughter has tons on fine, caucasian, curly hair that tends to frizz easily. In our climate, it's always humid. This product adds control and moisture without being oily or crunchy feeling. We love it.

I bought this for my daughter's super curly hair. She loves it because it keeps her curls manageable and smells fantastic. This is the only product I've found that does a really good job for her hair.
