Product Review:

Being of Mexican/Spanish heritage, but with the complexion of Casper the ghost, I’m always on the hunt for products that work for me.

As my paternal Grandfather had told me, “Whenever explaining your hair type say it’s more like Black-Cuban.” And it really is. I love my naturally curly hair but frizz is always an issue so when I find a product I love I want to share it with everyone. Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue is so far one of the best!

Seeing Miss Jessie’s on Instagram my interest was more than peaked and once on their website I found an abundance of products in various sizes and prices. Packaged in attractive bright and easy to read packets the $2 size has enough product in it for two solid uses. Now the Curly Meringue is made with four awesome oils; avocado, coconut, jojoba seed, and sweet almond these all clearly add to the shine factor. With a slightly thick consistency and minimal tackiness it washes off hands easily after application. Love, love, love, the smell of this light yellow dream creme which reminds me of a pineapple Livesaver candy that is not overwhelming but only adds that extra fun factor to this already great product. The medium hold of this crème styler allows for your curls to not only be frizz free but no worries about the crunchy factor that happens when using gels or some mousse products. Anyone with even the slightest curl will benefit from using this Miss Jessie’s product.

Now the Pillow Soft Curls certainly is true to its name, no stale ends or crunchy curls. This blue styling lotion contains safflower and avocado oils along with citric acid to help fortify your hair. It has a refreshing out of the dryer fabric softener smell. I found this to leave some residue on my hands so a thorough washing with warm water and soap got the job done. Although this did the job and left my curls “pillow soft” the fabric softener smell just isn’t for me. I may just be a little more sensitive to the smell but getting beyond that this product works and works well.
