First impression

The line of products smell tropical but not that perfumey, fake smell. Hints of pineapple and coconut, which are ideal for this season.

Cleansing Cream

Jessicurl says:

A gentle alternative to shampoo. Use Jessicurl Hair Cleansing Cream to wash your hair gently without leaving it stripped and straw-like. The super-moisturizing formula will make your hair soft, silky and wonderfully clean. Safe for color-treated hair.

I say:

This is a nice co-wash. It doesn't really lather which I like. It is in my top favorite co-washes out there. My hair felt incredibly soft after, I might have been able to get away with no conditioner. It also cleansed my scalp and hair nicely. If you have especially dry hair, you should totally give this one a try.

Gentle Lather Shampoo

Jessicurl says:

Gentle Lather Shampoo creates a creamy, luxurious lather without leaving your hair dry after use. It’s not as moisturizing as our Hair Cleansing Cream and won’t weigh down finer hair. If you’ve found that Hair Cleansing Cream is too much moisture for you, then you’ll really like Gentle Lather Shampoo. Those of you who love Hair Cleansing Cream for regular use will appreciate GLS as an alternative to harsher clarifying shampoos. It also makes a great face and body wash!

I say:

This is a nice sulfate free shampoo. It had low lather and left my hair feeling really clean! My hair still had that "I need conditioner" feel after it, but it did not feel stripped. I tried it as a body wash too and as a body wash it left my skin feeling incredibly soft. I think I actually like it even better as a body wash than a shampoo!

A note about the Jessicurl Conditioners:

I was comparing the Aloeba and Too Shea! conditioner and they both have the extact same excellent herbs and extracts for hair health. The Aloeba has coconut oil and no shea butter where the Too Shea! has added shea butter in it.

Aloeba Daily Conditioner

Jessicurl says:

Adding moisture to curly hair is a tricky practice --some curls need a good dose of moisture, but are at risk of their hair getting weighed down. This conditioner uses coconut, jojoba and avocado oils to moisturize the hair without being too heavy. The added benefit of a variety of herbs and spices makes this a truly fabulous conditioner.

I say:

If you have fine hair that gets weighed down easily, you will really like this conditioner as it doesn't seem to weight hair down. It worked okay on my hair, but since my hair is so dry it prefers the heavier stuff.

Too Shea! Extra Moisturizing Conditioner

Jessicurl says:

This thick conditioner uses shea butter for its moisturizing properties, adding great softness to super dry hair. It also utilizes the beneficial properties of 14 different herbs and spices. Good for daily use for those with thick, dry hair, but might be too heavy for hair that gets weighed down easily.I say:

I say:

This is a great conditioner and also makes a nice leave in. It is one of my favorites to use as a leave in, I notice nice curl definition with it. It made detangling easy which I appreciated. No complaints at all, a five star conditioner.

Deep Conditioning Treatment

Jessicurl says:

Deep conditioning treatments with heat really moisturize and strengthen the hair, and they're just plain fun to do. This treatment works best with a plastic cap and left on for 20 minutes. This thick conditioner uses cocoa butter and shea butter to add some serious moisture to your hair. Great for all Hair Types!

I say:

This is one of my favorite moisturizing deep treatments. It is protein free so this is a good pick if your hair is protein sensitive. As they say, I find this treatment really does work excellent when used with heat or steam. Aside from leaving my hair super soft, I like that this has ingredients such as Nettle, Rosemary, Bay Leaf, and Peppermint which can also help promote hair growth. In the winter, I also like to sometimes use a little of this as a leave in as well. It could weigh certain hair types down immediately after use, but it is still worth it because of all the greatness you are putting into your hair with it! My one critique of this product is that it is so super thick, I think it should be in a tub instead of a bottle. It can be hard to get out, but it's worth it! I usually cut the bottle open and move the contents into a jar.

Awe Inspiraling Spray

Jessicurl says:

A natural, mid-day spray designed to add oomph to droopy curls. Gives curls a boost when they need a little help making it through. Also good to use on bed head or after a workout.

I say:

This is one of my favorite refresher sprays of all time! It is very lightweight and the Magnesium Sulfate inside really helps to re-encourage my curl formation. The Aloe and Jojoba Oil inside helps to give my hair some moisture. I've been able to skip countless washings thanks to this product. I do usually follow it up with a silicone free serum to further help frizz.

Stimulating Scalp Massage Oil

Jessicurl says:

This potent potion is chock full of herbs and essential oils known for their hair-growth properties. While it won't re-grow hair on a bald head, it can encourage healthy hair growth for people who still have hair. It also has the added benefit of making dry hair very soft.

I say:

A fantastic hair growth oil. I like to keep this in my hair growth oil rotation regularly and would apply it at night, on night's before I know I will wash my hair the next morning (so 2-3 times a week) It smells nice and minty, and a little goes a long way. Because a main ingredient is coconut oil, it can solidify in colder weather but I will take some in a bowl and warm it up in my hands and then massage in my scalp. There are just so many great essential oils in here including Peppermint, Basil, Horsetail, Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Nettle and Marshmallow Root just to name a few! I like that there are no fillers or junk, this is a bottle of straight up good for your scalp hair growth ingredients!

Oil Blend for Softer Hair

Jessicurl says:

Smooth a few drops of oil through wet or dry hair to add softness and shine.

I say:

A nice multi-tasker, great to bring on trips! This bottle is 3 simple ingredients: Avocado, Jojoba and Coconut oils. I can use a small amount on day 2 or 3 hair and it will calm down any puff and help with frizz, add some to any conditioner to give it some extra "ooomph" or sleep with some through the lengths of my hair as a great overnight pre-poo treatment. If you do sleep with it in your hair, make sure you wrap your hair in a bonnet or towel so it does not get on your pillow. You can also use this on your body for soft skin.

Spiralicious Gel

Jessicurl says:

Spiralicious is much thicker than Confident Coils and very gel-like in consistency but does not flake in the hair like many gels can. While it can dry crunchy, that initial crunch scrunches out really easily, leaving the hair very soft to the touch, but the curls hold up all day. No ramen-noodle curls here! One of the best parts about it is the frizz control. Seriously people, the frizz control on this stuff is NO JOKE! Spiralicious will provide you with fabulous hold and frizz control but without giving you “helmet head.” It’s pretty awesome.

I say:

A HOLY GRAIL PRODUCT. I have been obsessed with this since it was released in Fall of 2013. It is one of my top 2 favorite hair styler gels of all time and without a doubt, my favorite product in the entire Jessicurl line. If you watch any of my youtube videos, chances are you probably heard me rave about this more than once. It is a product I will reach for if I need to be guaranteed a great hair day without let down. It is firm hold with no crunch, it is not sticky. Spiralicious increases my curl definition, my frizz is virtually ALL GONE and it also provides some nice shine. Sometimes I can get up to Day 5 (FIVE!) hair with this gel, which is incredible! I can use it on it's own or over other stylers like creams or mousses and it does play well with others.
