I have fine, blonde hair, and decided to give this a try... very glad I did, it not only helps curls stay, but when I blow my hair out, and straighten it, this product keeps the ends smooth with no frizziness! As for the value... you get what you pay for with hair products, so I was very confused with the reviews complaining about the price... I think it's worth every penny.
I used this after the Leave-In Condish, maybe the two products combined weighed my hair down. After blow drying, my hair appeared thicker. It just looked different than usual, maybe there were more curls. But there was residue
Miss Jessie's was recommended by a friend when I told her I was trying to go natural. I contacted Miss Jessie's because I didn't know what product to buy for my fine, curly, but very dry hair. They recommended the Curly Meringue and Baby Buttercreme. The Curly Meringue is FANTASTIC..it makes my hair shine and it smells GREAT!!
[...] I really like the product and I find that it doesn't dry out my hair. I do really like the way it smells and it leaves my hair flexible and not hard as some others have mentioned. It does take some practice to use it correctly for your hair type, so I would say give yourself a couple of trys before you rule it out. It is a little pricey in my opinion, but it works well and differently than anything I've tried.
I would have to say based on some of the other reviews I saw that this product is not for every curly hair type. I have curly fine hair so I have to be careful what I use. I found this product to be what I was looking for if I want a firm hold but without the drying effects of gel. I got exactly what I was looking for. It is very moisturizing but once it drys my hair was "crunchy" but not too hard. It held my strands exactly where I left them when my hair was still wet which is what I like. I do not like a completely different look once it drys as I let my hair air dry. One thing to note is that you do not want to use a lot of the product. Even though the strands of my hair are fine I have thick hair and usually have to use a lot of product to cover everything. I used about a tablespoon of this which is unusual for me and that was more than enough. It did not leave a residue and I received plenty of compliments on my hair throughout the day.
I have been natural for about two years and when I first tried their products I was not impressed. I tried the Curly Pudding but switched to the Curly Meringue and I loved it once I learned how to use it properly. This product is more for twist outs and braid outs - especially for type 4 hair. I do not recommend using it as a wash and go product or anything of that sort. It gives my twist outs a nice and soft hold. My twist outs last at least a week and possibly longer if I wanted them to.
I love this product. I did a braid out with it while my hair was wet and it came out soft and curly. It made my hair smell so good. I used in conjuction with the Super sweetback deep treatment which I love also. It made my hair feel like silk. It had so much shine to it. I could not ask for a better product. I always tell my natural friends I will pay the money on a product if it gives me good results. This product is a keeper in my collection.
