Thin slighty curly turned into smooth lovely curls!
Purchased

I have thin slightly curly (when wet) hair and in Seattle during the winter months there is NO POINT in drying my hair straight so I usually let it air dry and do its thing, but it always ends up looking frizzy no matter what product I use. However, I have been using this product for a week (just schlep a little on after towel drying) and voila I have the smooth waves that a girl can only dream about. Smell is absolutely lovely, not too greasy and not much is needed so will last a while!

Just okay
Sampled

This was an alright product for my hair. I have extremely curly/frizzy hair and I didn't like the feeling it left. It was okay at taming curls but I already have a regimen that I swear to and this didn't do any swaying for me.

No curls/waves here.

I get keratin treatments so I was excited to receive this product. I was let down by the end results - no curls/waves and a gross texture in my hair. Much better, keratin safe products out there.

this was ineffective for me. i have long, bleached, thick coarse hair. it will take a lot more to make me see and feel a difference.

Love it!
Purchased

I pretty much like all of Miss Jessie's products, this one is great. I prefer the scent of pillow soft curls to this one but my main concern were my curls. It is great on my hair. But I think I will go back to Pillow Soft Curls, next time I run out.

I really liked this product. I have extremely curly hair and it can get very frizzy. I will definitely be purchasing this in the future.

Works Great!
Purchased

I got this for my daughters hair. She has very curly hair which we recently put a relaxer on. The relaxer made her hair very dry and I didn't like what it did to her curls. We put this on her hair and her curls look amazing!

Love the way that my hair scrunches when I use this. Gives my hair that perfect beach wave/curls look. Great for wavy hair!
