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We're kicking the outdated, crunchy curl look to the curb.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.

After shampooing, apply a generous amount of product to damp strands, working from your roots to ends. Style as usual.

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
Purchased

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!

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!

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!

Loved it
Purchased

It Smells amazing and is so much better than using sticky icky mousse. The consistency doesn't leave her curls stiff or weighed down or greasy. It's amazing. Paired with the detangler we got from here her hair smells and looks like a million bucks with hardly any fuss. SO nice from before when there was a lot of tangles, pulled hair and took forever. Well, not with this product. We love it.

Great for curly hair!

I have horribly unruly curls and am constantly looking for new products to manage them. This worked really well!! It didn't leave my hair heavy or crunchy like many products do. It smells amazing and left my hair soft and smooth with more uniform curls!

LOVE IT!!!

I've had a difficult time finding the right product for my wavy, frizzy hair and this product is great. Most products I've used have just left my hair crunchy, stiff looking and dry and this leaves my waves so soft. Be careful not to use too much though, it may feel a little dirty if you do.

simply the best!!!!

This is simply the best product ever for curly hair. I use a small (nickel size) amount and comb through evenly. I then scrunch and air dry my hair. My curls are soft and bouncy all day. My curls never look sticky or gel like hard. I will never use anything else for my curly hair.
