I have 2b/2c, high porosity hair, and live in a place with hot, humid weather during spring and summer. I've tried both Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft and Pillow Soft curls. Pillow Soft does give me softer curls and waves, but like Jelly Soft, it left a residue on my hair that made strands stick together. When I ran my hands through my dried hair, the stickiness made my hair frizz due to the tugging and friction, and I got the residue on my hands. Soft looking, but not touchable curls and waves.
This product I am not in love with. I really like defined volumized curls and that is what I expected this product to do, it didn't for me a least. My curls did look like ramen noodles in the back especially. Also, it leaves a funky residue in my hair which I HATE. You couldn't touch my hair without feeling resin in your hands. Finally my hair felt crunchy after using it which is opposite of what I had hoped for, Sigh.....I am not crazy about the highly perfumed smell either but it did wear off after a while. This was my first Miss Jessie's Product and I will try Jelly Soft Curls and Multicultural to see if they work for me. My hair is 3b/3c and I usually by products that work on the 3c hair type.
I love the way this smells. Yes, it smells like laundry. Who doesn't like fresh laundry? It defines my curls without making them crunchy or wet looking, which I hate. It doesn't completely stop my hair from frizzing, but it helps some. My hair feels soft, supple, and light with the product in, so I don't feel like I need to immediately wash my hair at the end of the day. Best surprise I had was when I used some of this in my unwashed hair while I was sleeping in braids, just to set the braid waves nicely and make my dirty hair look a little nicer. I ended up going out in some light rain and the rain water reactivated my curls into nice minimally frizzy waves and ringlets.
I was so excited to finally be able to p urchase this product. The smell was so nice, reminds me of laundry detergent. It was really thick and did provide lots of slip. I loved that it was in a tube for easily handling. My problem and one reason I gave it a low rating is that it left a horrible film behind. It was a chalky residue. My hair did have a really light curl--so I wasn't looking for distinct definition. The film made my hair just immobile. Not hold, as you would get from gel. But, icky from the cast (man it felt like maybe mine had been on the shelf too long). Right now? I'll stick with Ecostyler, water and regular old rinse out conditioner. Yuck.
Was really disappointed on this one. The name is what for my attention when I was just browsing on day. Didn't think of really getting it cuz of the price and size. Then one day I decided why not. It definitely made my hair soft, but it also felt coated. Curls didn't have much definition. Def like jelly soft curls.
This is my HOLY GRAIL styling product. No questions asked. It defines my curls like nobody's business. I use this for wash n go's, and also for braid outs (i layer braid outs on top of 2-3 day old wash n go's to stretch my hair a little bit) and it works great on all of them. My hair gets so bouncy and full looking after I put this on with a little bit of my favorite leave-in and then diffuse. I purchased my tube of this at Target for $22 (the price is the worst thing about this product) and I've had my one tube for about seven months. I normally apply this in sections, with a little less than a dime size per section. I almost always diffuse on a cool setting, and after diffusing I scrunch out the crunch and am left with soft ringlets. I don't care for the smell (it smells like laundry detergent) but it works. Also, i'm able to use this product year round with no problems, but that may also be because I live in a climate that is dry, with no humidity to speak of. Love this product and highly recommend it. The sister product to this one, Miss Jessie's Jelly Soft Curls is also a great product. LOVE!!
I love this! It gives me a good amount of volume, smells great, and makes my hair soft. The reason it's not a 5 is because it didn't really do what it said it was meant for; expanded size in diameter of the curls. I was kind of upset about that. It gave good curl definition and I thought the smell would be stronger, it's not, which is a good thing since it does smell like laundry detergent. This is going to be a staple product for me! Also, for me personally, I couldn't just use a dime or quarter size. I added was seemed to be enough to sections of my hair, I don't mind though.
I absolutely LOVE this product. I purchased mine at Target. It has a very pleasant smell, baby blue in color and smells very clean..almost like fabric softener but not too much. I apply this as much as I need and it has to be silicone free because it does not coat my hair at all. It rinses out nicely with my co-washing. This can be used by itself and it also works will with leave-ins. The hold is great. Apply on the hair when wet and once it dries you have that crunch but it scrunches out nicely. I highly recommend this product for anybody. This will be my staple for summer.
I was expecting some crunchiness or frizz. But I got none, even though I used very little since I'm ok with a little fluffiness. Can't believe how soft and shiny my hair was - I must have checked the mirror 10x expecting to see frizz. Day 2, it looked slightly greasy and flat (since I don't pineapple) but a few hours later it puffed up and looked great again.
Smelled great and left my hair really soft, worked great on my moms hair too! The price and the fact my curls fell by the end of the day kept it from a 5
My hair is 4b/c and my daughter's are 3b/3c and this stuff works! My hair is constantly thirsty and this leaves my hair soft and manageable. I apply oil, leave-in conditioner and pillow soft. I have super thick hair and only need to use a quarter size or less of this product. This has become a staple for our hair care regimen!
I love how this product makes my curls feel. After I conditioned, Pillow Soft Curls made my hair feel soft, detangled, and defined.
I love this styling cream. It doesn't make your hair a whole lot more moisturized or softened than you could get it by leaving in some good quality conditioner, but it's still pretty awesome. It has a great scent, it defines curls well on its own (eliminating the need for gel), and it really does leave my hair super soft. I hate that crispy, ramen-noodle style some women with curly hair wear, and this prevents that. Your curls look more like 1940s movie star hair. Also, a little bit of a non sequitur, does anyone know what's up with the new product description design interface? I don't see those little icons saying "alcohol free", "anti-humectant", "silicone free", etc. There aren't *any* labels of the kind, actually. I want to know if Pillow Soft Curls is an anti-humectant that I can use in Florida during humid rainy/hurricane season.
I got this as a sample and I am so glad I didn't waste my money on this product. It did NOTHING for my hair--my curls were ill-defined, frizzy, stringy and felt "producty-y"--not touchable or silky at all. My hair just felt disgusting. It didn't look much better. And do not get me started on this this product smells. It smells EXACTLY like Downy fabric softener. I don't understand the marketing decision that led to laundry-scented hair. Who on earth wants curls that smell like dryer sheets? And it's not a light scent. I smelled STRONGLY of laundry. I hated this so much I came home from work and washed my hair to get rid of the smell. The next day my hair STILL smelled of Downy. Yuck. Do not like.
Works on my wavy hair, I use this for beachy waves without the drying that I get from salt sprays. Just scrunch it through and then dry with a diffuser. Freshly dried I get pretty tight curls/coils but once my hair cools and fully dries it relaxes into beachy waves. Day two and three I spritz with a small water bottle full of water and a small drop of PSC, just shake it and spray and it helps smooth out any bedhead weirdness. And I love the scent, I hate smelling like fruit. A bit expensive though, luckily this is one of those products where a little goes a long way.
I am usually not a fan of miss jessie's products...they cost wayyyy too much and in my experience dont really do what they advertise. However, I do LOVE Pillow soft curls. my hair had never been as soft as it has since I started using this. It doesnt really define my curls too well, but it does keep them detangled, soft and manageble all day. I just mix it with my HG Defining Cream (Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Souffle) and Im good to go!
I never used Miss Jessie before, I'm a die hard Deva Curl Girl, but when I saw it on discount at one of my favorite beauty stores in NYC, I couldn't resist. To start, I'll address the smell. It says right on the tube that it's the "fabric softener" for curls, and I think it's so clever it smells just like Downey's Fabric Softener. I realize it may not be ideal for most, but I personally loved it, and so did my finance! I washed my hair like normal, using Deva Curl No-Poo and then Deva Curl One Condition, which I only did a trickle rince and let the rest in my hair. After blotting the extra conditioner out of my curls with a microfiber towel, I took a palmful of PILLOW SOFT CURLS and scrunched it throughout my hair. I let it air dry and put on a satin bonnet before I went to sleep. I couldn't get over my curls the next morning, they were soft to the touch and looked like princess curls. Not to mention, my hair looked like it grew an inch or so overnight! It stretched out a couple of my curls, but not enough to make them lose shape. I'm on my third day since I applied it and my hair still looks great! Every morning I mist my hair with homemade lavander water and apply a tiny bit more PILLOW SOFT CURLS on to my hair, and it looks like I just washed it. Best $20 I ever spent. Note: I don't think this product is meant for those who don't follow the CG methood. I looked at the ingrediants, and many are commonly known not to react well with sulfates. Just a thought to all those who might have trouble with, it reacts pretty well to moisturized curls.
Sadly, this product left tiny flakes in my hair that looked like a light dusting of dandruff in my hair. I've used this product 6 times: without a leave-in, with a leave-in, a little bit without a leave-in, a little bit with a leave-in, a lot with a leave-in, and a lot without a leave-in. The results were still the same--white specks left in my hair. My hair was soft, full, had a light hold though, and, I loved the scent. Just wished it didn't leave a residue in my hair.
This stuff is a waste of money!!! I bought this product out of desperation after moving to TX. The dry climate was killing my hair. After applying the product, it defined the curl but once it dried, it left my hair looking dull and lifeless. So I tried it to give it a second try, so I applied the product while doing a twist out, and it left my twists frizzy. So it didn''t work for me.
First, I love the smell of Downy, and that's EXACTLY what this smells like. I wasn't sure this would work on my 3c/4a hair for a WNG, but it did! I had a great definition and a surprising amount of hold, even after walking around for a couple hours in the fall wind. My hair was incredibly soft to the touch as well - the only down side was that the next morning, my hair did feel drier, but maybe with a heavier leave-in underneath that won't happen. Love it though!
I got this product as a sample ( thanx btw) and so far i love it, i have used it for about 3 days now doing bantu curls and have had great results my hair is like a 3c/4a/4b <-- yes all in one *eyeroll* but anyways, I LOVE THIS PRODUCT ! i give it a 4 because it smells great, leaves my hair soft and moist without weighing it down and it is easy to apply, a little goes a long way...which it would need to because the price is $22....reason why it is not 5 curls.
3b/a I couldn't resist the name of this one, so when I was in need of a product with lots of moisture I grabbed it. This is a wonderful curl cream for when I want a certain style. When I read about this product, I was skeptical that one curl cream could give me "large flowing curls." Turns out it can, really really well. After washing my hair I apply 1 -2 tablespoons raked through the sections of my hair. I use it as my leave-in conditioner. Then I go to sleep. The April fresh fragrance gives the illusion I'm sleeping on crisp new sheets, and it's relaxing. When I wake up, I have long hair! The hair that usually curls in sharpie-pen sized spirals forms many round curls of different sizes. The canopy is less swirled than usual, but still full of bouncy body. This is a quick easy product for wash & goes. It dries faster than many other creams, and it protects the moisture in my hair all day long.
This stuff is perfect for a wash n go. Keep the hair moisturized, soft, and shiny. Love the smell but not so crazy about the ingredients.
So I tried the pillow soft curls today and LOVED it!!! My hair is pretty thick so I used it to do my two stran twist (chunky twist) and its soft and fluffy didn't weigh my hair down at all. People complain about the smell who doesn't like the smell of fabric softener lol so the smell didnt bother me at all. I will def use this product again. Oh my hair is like a 3c
I LOVE this product on my TWA. I just put a quarter size on my hand and rub in my hair...."BAM" my wash n go is GOOD to GO. My curls are POPPING and they stay fresh all day long. I will always have this staple available. I've gotten many compliments on my curls since using this product.
This really defines my coils and I have a little less shrinkage than usual. It should be called Pillow 'Medium' Curls because no matter how little product I apply I still get crunch. It really does smell like Downy!
After I use this tube up I will not be trying any of the other products, this product made my hair hard and sticky!!!!! Just did not work for me and I wet, shampooed and conditioned my hair daily still no GOOD results!!!
I love love love this stuff... I got up this morning not knowing what to do with my hair so I decided to try the pillow soft culs that I ordered a couple of weeks ago. Im at work now and my hair is like 80% dry and fully dry in some spots.The clumpage it gives and definition it gives is just amazing..I think I like this way more than the curly pudding the scent is a fabric softner fresh scent which smells really good you dont even need to put perfume on. My hair seems to dry more faster with this styling lotion. This will definitely be one of my staples for wash-n-go's. Out of all the miss jessies products this is now one of my favorites along with the curly meringue, Rapid recovery , the shampoo and the conditioner talknig about major hair growth just using these products..Ilove miss jessies cant wait until the bogo sale so I can stock up but will get some of done with the now free shipping. Excellent product a must try if not yet tried it.

First of all - let me address the first reviewer! You don't really need to use harsh language just to say that you dislike a product. Use you "Big Girl" words....seriously! Second of all, I've been a fan of Miss Jessie's every since I transitioned to Natural. It's OBVIOUS that they utilize the smells to match the TITLE of their products so wouldn't it make since for "Pillow Soft Curls" to smell like Fabric Softener. That's their gimmick!! BUT HERE'S MY REVIEW: This product works VERY WELL on my 3c curls and it did what it said it would do. It made my curls SOFT yet defined (which is what I love about ALL their products) I had NO hard or crunchy curls and my hair was left soft and bouncy which it almost impossible with many curl creams! As for the smell, it is a strong smell but it's a 'clean' smell!! If strong smells bother you just choose something else. I'm sure (in time) Miss Jessie will make a version of this that doesn't smell like Fabric Softener!
Goddammit Miss Jessie. The bloody thing smells like FABRIC SOFTENER! I've no idea what's up with their scents—sickening bubblegum, fabric softener. They should seriously reconsider these scents, and offer ones without. They may be all right at getting your hair to agree (with the use of silicone, no doubt); but my god they are shit with common sense. Who wants their hair to smell like fabric softener?
