- don't let everybody elses long straight weave bum you out. don't let other people's big/long natural hair bum you out either. embrace what you have and rock it with confidence, because that's the only way you'll be happy. and whether you realize it or not you are somebody's influence. show them what it truly means to be confident.

wow, very grand

i don't hope they fail. their products work for some people. i'm a believer in their buttercream in my harsh winter. i hope i can take advantage of their bogo (if it's offered this year!). didn't like the rest of their products i tried.

i remember when i 1st went natural, carol's daughter was all you heard whenever anyone mentioned 'natural'. i got locs after a while. when i decided to be a loose natural again, the word on the street (and in magazines etc) was miss jessies. it's up to each individual to get educated about ingredients and not get sucked in by powerful marketing. it may start with miss jessies. doesn't mean it has to end there.
LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice

The space is beautiful, and I hope that they do well. However, I did notice that the sister's were the only ladies who had great hair, and I think that is because they have silkeners in their hair. What's up with that?
Miss Jessie's is not the product line of choice for me. I don't like the fact that they use petroleum/petrolatum in their products. It is too expensive to have that crap in there, and I can get something like that from the local beauty supply at a fraction of the cost.
I tried the hair creme that smells like peppermint and it was really greasy. In any case, the best of luck to them! They are ladies that have their own business, and we should all be wishing them well.

I'm not a Miss Jessie's customer, but I do hope their business continues to succeed. The salon is just lovely. All the best to them.

I just wanted to talk sh*t cuz.... earlier I was bored at work (new job and not a lot of duties yet) and then when I got home I've been doing tea rinses and Deep treatments and the board was slow so I just started posting. I really do hate them wenches but I'm just bein an @$$hole in your thread right now.

It looks really nice, but expensive as all get out. I can't imagine feeling comfortable in there cause I'd be constantly worrying about if I had enough to cover the bill.

I felt sorry for that one lady's hair though. It looks like it's been silkened to the point of no return. She just needs to make it completely straight and call it a day.
Their salon better be nice as much as they charge for products and their "silkener" and shingling services. That money has to be reinvested somewhere.

I'm not a fan, but I understand that their products work for some ladies. My grievance with them is that they say "natural" but then push their silkener (i.e relaxer/texturizer) on people. It's not really about learning to love and/or work with your natural texture which is unfortunate since they are well known in the natural hair care industry. I feel like with their popularity, a lot of ladies wanting to go natural go to them and get pushed right back into the chemical world they were trying to get away from.

Either way, business is business and they have to do what they can to make theirs thrive.
Over 10 years natural and still growing...

It seems unethical and it's not something I would do. But, that's their hustle. Again, the salon looks lovely.

Hell, I had a texturizer in the beginning of my natural journey as well before I embraced my kinks, but I was fully aware of what I was doing. I do agree about the false advertising. Call a spade a spade. And on top of that to charge SO MUCH.

Either way, it is a beautiful salon. I do agree with some of the previous posts that those poor ladies have silkened their hair past the point of no return. I remember when I was there as well from overlaps of my texturizer. Not much to do but start over fresh, but I guess to each his/her own.
