Miss Jessie's Jelly Soft Curls
I didn't think it would work after the failed results of the the Pillow Soft Curls. The introductory price of $14 was tempting, so I decided to give this one a try.
Definition, body, bounce, and shine is what this product delivers to your curls. The next day, it was still defined, shine was still there, and still had the bounce and body. And, no white residue!
The scent is a mild "Downey" scent such that someone has to be close to you to notice it. The gel is clear and thick, but spreads easily in your hair. Doesn't take long to dry like Pillow Soft Curls.
If your hair is naturally dry, just make sure that your conditioner is moisturizing. Then the steam from the shower (with a shower cap) will add any additional moisture you may need.
Plus: After my hair was dry, I stretched it with my hands. The next day, it stayed stretched but kept the definition and body!
Curl Rating: 5 out of 5 curls!
