Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Treatment
Aug 25, 2010 - I am a huge Miss Jessie fan so you can imagine how excited I was to try this new product. I first got a sample from my stylist. The results were very disappointing. My hair was dry, tangled and shrunken. I figured I did something incorrectly so I purchased the large jar and decided to follow the instructions precisely.
Curlies, I must say, this product was still a HUGE disappointment. It didn't elongate my shoulder length curls nor did it hydrate my hair. The only thing it did do is cause major shrinkage and tangles in my 3b/3c hair. It set my curls but my hair was so shrunken that wasn't a good thing. People thought I got a hair cut! I have been using it regularly for more than a month now and even let my Mom, who has similar hair but tends to react differently to products, try it. Her hair was so shrunken and somewhat dry. It looked so BAD. I wanted to cry because that means I can't give it to her, I have to use it. I'm cheap, ladies and can't just throw $50 in the trash. Sadly, after all of this time (2 plus hours if you calculate the time I spent letting the product "penetrate") I have yet to see any results. I followed the instructions to a tee. I also varied them by using the shower steam option for two weeks and the dryer option the other two weeks. Now I am just trying to finish up the jar using steam (best of the two results) and put the whole experience behind me. I hate to waste money so believe me, I am irate. Bottom line: don't waste your money or your time. Ouidad DT is fantastic and only takes 12 mins. Super Sweetback is way too expensive and I got bad results. I would not recommend it.
