Default Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls

On the real, it smells like straight up Downy. My samples were a pale blue as well.

It's very creamy but I had to skimp on some parts. If I had 4ozs I would have been good.

I think the hold is going to be very soft which for me isn't good for my WnGs. I like a medium hold for longer wear

The name says it all. Miss Jessie’s PILLOW SOFT CURLS™ is the new styling lotion that borrows fabric care technology and marries it to haircare. It is perfect for achieving static-free, big, soft, curly hair that we all dream about. If you don't want ramen noodle definition and instead want a larger, expanded, fluffy curl then PILLOW SOFT CURLS™ is for you! It's the first “fabric softener” type styling lotion that will leave your curls clothesline fresh and fluffy soft. You will see that PILLOW SOFT CURLS™ is so easy to apply. It spreads so smoothly and feels as light as a feather on your curls.

Quaternary ammonium salts which are softening/conditioning agents are used in fabric softener as well. So the tie to fabric softerner is not new per se. Diethyl ester dimethyl ammonium chloride can be used in hair conditioners as well.

Conditioner is really a (fabric)softener for your hair. LOL at this smelling like Downy. The only scent I liked from MJs is the buttercream

Thanks for posting about the fragrance. I think I will pass. I can't take any of the MJ styler scents.

^^^Yikes is right. I got 2 samples of this from this MJ's web site. I put this in my hair at 12:30 pm. It is now 9pm and I STILL smell like Downy. And my hair is not pillow soft. Nope can't use this. I have hot flashes and everytime I get one, the smell gets stronger. OMG! What were they (MJ) thinking. Why would they think that anyone would want to smell like Downy all day???

Hope my Qhemet CDTG gets here tomorrow so I can wash my hair again.

Nicely defined. I'll use it in the winter when the climate where I live is the driest, 'cause I like a soft hold in the winter by a product that doesn't dry out my hair.

Thanks for the pics!

Doesn't shea butter do exactly that?
At least that's what I get from using it.

The Pillow Soft Curls didn't work for me. If there is a different way to use it, please let me know because I really loved the scent and how soft my hair felt.
