Miss Jessie's® Original

Birchbox Breakdown

We're kicking the outdated, crunchy curl look to the curb. This lightweight styling lotion gives definition to stubborn curls. The creamy formula delivers fluffy, touchable curls and larger than life volume, without weighing down your hair's natural bounce. It’'s made with a healing blend of avocado, coconut, sweet almond, and olive to repair dry, damaged locks. Plus, the fresh scent is sublimely subtle enough for everyday wear.

Miss Jessie's makes awesome curly hair products, but this one is going back. Unlike the jelly soft curls (which I will delightfully continue to use) the pillow soft did nothing for my hair. Not only did it not give definition to my curls, it made my hair flat and limp (and I didn't use too much - tried it twice). Sure, there was no frizz, but it also zapped all the natural curl and body. For reference, my hair is medium thick, textured (almost coarse) and, naturally dries somewhere between big waves and ringlets, depending on its mood and the weather.

Finally! A product for my wacky waves!

After receiving a sample of Miss Jessie's Quick Curls in one of my Birchboxes, I decided to purchase my first full size product: Miss Jessie's Original Pillow Soft Curls. I actually ordered this product because it was the cheapest of their line of curling products. I mean, let's face it, I have never paid more than $10.00 for a hair product since I am never happy with them. But don't let the lower price fool you...this stuff is amazing and I like it better than my original Birchbox sample! This stuff gives my waves an actual curl, which looks amazing and rewards me with compliments from tons of people. It also tames the frizz without that crunchy, wet look that you get from most gels. The smell isn't too bad either. I am so happy to have finally found a product that does exactly what I want for my naturally curly hair! I can't wait to buy other products from Miss Jessie's!

My new favorite

I received the Miss Jessie's Multicultural Curls in my June box, and really loved it. However, I felt that MC wasn't exactly what wavy, fine hair needed, so I decided to give this stuff a try. Wow, good move! It smells like fresh laundry (which is amazing), dries quickly, isn't too heavy or sticky, and gives me wonderfully curly/wavy hair without frizz. I pair it with a bit of texturizing spray and the Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper for frizz-free, soft curls/waves. Perfect for summertime!

Great results - strong smell, however.

Great product! This cream did an uncommonly good job of controlling my frizz and defining my curls. It left my hair feeling soft and light - not at all crunchy or weighed down. My only criticism is that the fragrance in this cream can be a little overpowering - the scent is reminiscent of fabric softener. I think that might be a major drawback for folks who are sensitive to strong fragrances.

Love this!!!

Oh my goodness! My curls look amazing, this product is awesome. I used it along with Fekkai Pre Soliel hair mist and it is like magic. I also love the smell, it is a very clean fresh smell and not overly prefumey. I think this hair product is now going to be my holy grail.

Love This!

This product is such a nice alternative to using mousse, gel, cream (or usually a combination of the 3). It helped keep my curls under control without making them stiff. The only thing I struggled with was how much to use because my hair is so long. But I would definitely recommend this!

disappointed.
Purchased

I was really excited for this product, as I hadn't had a sample of it. But unfortunately, it didn't work with my hair. My hair isn't thick, but it's not thin either, and it's wavy. It did nothing to my hair, waves fell out almost immediately and then it just looked like a frizzy mess.
Next time, I'll have to wait for the sample to come in before buying full sized products.

I LOVE this product

I have naturally curly hair and this is one of the best products i have ever used. I have repurchased it many times and i recommend it to anyone who asks. My curls are soft, natural looking and do not frizz. They last all day and even into the next day. This is the best!

Holy Grail!
Purchased

Oohhhh this stuff is so good!!! I'm Caucasian with 2b/2c wavy hair--it's easily weighed down and gets crunchy super easy. My styling method before this was complicated and I only got so-so results. Now I just plop, scrunch this into my hair, and diffuse! It's so ridiculously soft and smells clean and fresh--and I can run my fingers through it with no knots or tangles!! It's like my natural wave but better--softer, more wavy, and less frizzy. Give this stuff a try--much less hassle than a million gels and methods!
