I'm going to be honest. I don't like my natural hair that much.
I used to love my curls! When I was in high school and college, I wore my hair curly most of the time. But in those days I also relaxed my hair and my curls were looser and easier to manage. I could use any product on them and they were in control. I could even go product free and it would still look ok! After I went "natural" over 10 years ago, I totally fell out of love with my natural curls and I have yet to find a product that works well for them. Is this the one? Hmmm...Ok, it's not that dramatic. But this product works really well actually!
I know I've used a Ms. Jessie's product in the past, but which one I could not tell you. I saw this one while I was looking for my favorite edge control in Target - the name caught my eye so I grabbed it.
The first day I used it, I think I may have used too much. It felt very crunchy and looked kind of "crispy," like it would have if I used too much gel. I'm not a big fan of that look. I also parted my hair the wrong way. I have no explanation for why I did that and I didn't even realize it until the next day.
So the next day, I just co-washed and tried again. This time I parted it the correct way and used less product. And I was REALLY happy with the results.
I just got back from vacation in Orlando where the weather is way too humid to keep my hair looking good when it's straight. So 2 days in I gave in a went with curls and this product worked really well in the humid weather.
By the end of the day, my ends had started to frizz a bit, but that happens with basically every product I try, so I wasn't too surprised or disappointed. But beyond that, my hair held up well and looked great in my opinion!
So I definitely give this product a GLAM. It's kind of pricey - $16 a bottle - but I didn't need to use too much to coat my hair and I never had to re-apply, so one tube should last me a while since I don't wear my hair curly very often.
Like I said, I got this at Target in the ethnic hair aisle. If you try it, let me know how you like it!
Until next time
