Much to my dismay, I was among the group of curlies that ordered it before they disclosed reformulatation. I tried both the Curly Meringue and the Curly Pudding so here's what I got from them:
1. Curly Pudding- took way too long to dry, but once it dried I was happy with the result. I used it a little avg to stretch it so I don't know what effect that had.
2. Curly Meringue- If/when I do consider purchasing from Miss Jessie's again, this would be the one. I got some detangling and smoothness with some clumping. It was like a moisturizing gel... I used it for both finger curls and wash n' go. (If I'm right there should be a couple pics in my fotki.) I just wish it didn't have sooo much mineral oil .
I feel like a 3c/4a most days... More specifically an OS, dominant S, with spongy medium thickness
