Yes, they are small, I guess they are about 2 oz. but it's enough to use for a couple of days (even a week) to get a feel for how you like the products. Maybe because they are so creamy and thick they last longer. I used my sample of Spiral Curls Cream for 5 days before I ran out and I used a nickel size dollop for each side of my head.

[my hair type is a 2/3 combo with waves and curls and it's thick, coarse and prone to frizz. I look for softness, curl definition, volume at the roots, frizz control and shine in a product and even though I am not on CG I would prefer products without a lot of 'cones or protein in them.]

Hope that helps!

I had no luck with Jessicurl stuff either...
HG: Biosilk Rock Hard Gelee (always and forever)
Cantu Naturals s & c (shampoo 1x a week), use conditioner as a co-wash every day and LI under my gel.

Air dry then diffuse canapy layers only for volume
Coconut oil before/after coloring grays and on ends.

2b/c mix waves/curls - coarse, frizz prone, med. thick, porous, at-home color, protein sensitive but I still need it sometimes, glycerin-sensitive (I think) in high humidity. After 16 years on I FINALLY figured it out..
