Miss Jessie's Multicultural Curls - 8.5 fl oz
Top Questions See all 20 Q&A
I have only used this product once.
First, the smell and texture were great but surprising. The smell was citrus and floral... not a normal smell for a gel. The consistency was more of a lotion... after seeing that I was pretty unsure how in the world it would be enough to hold my curls.
I followed the devacurl method. After a shower I added the product to my soaking wet hair. I then began to scrunch my curls allowing the excess water to fall. I then towel dries with a microfiber towel.
What I noticed was quite a bit more curl pattern than I had seen in a long time and it looked so natural. I was actually in quite a bit of shock. The underneath of my hair is always curly- but I had begun to think the top section was too damaged - it always stayed straight and fought against hair gels. NOT TODAY! I couldn’t believe the top portion of my hair was following a curl pattern!!!
So. It was beautiful when wet- but I will have to play with it to figure out how to help it dry that way. My hair holds too much water to air dry. It would literally take 3+ hours... so I chose to diffuse. This process had mixed results. Some portions did really well, some did not. I think I will try to let it mostly dry overnight in clips and then diffuse in the morning...
So, although I do not have the styling down yet— this is the most promise I’ve seen in my hair in a very long time and that’s why I gave it 5 stars. Cross your fingers for me. I’d love this to be my next holy grail item!!!
I moved it down to 4 stars because after a week I still can’t get the styling down and honestly it shouldn’t be so hard. My curls look beautiful after the shower with the product in it- but air drying doesn’t seem to work... the ends get weighted down and straight. The diffuser seems to bring out frizz in my hair... I usually sleep in clips but that’s not quite working either... so my issue is trying to keep the curls as pretty as they are when they are wet. I will update if I ever figure it out!
