    What a joke!

    There is so much hype about Miss Jessie’s hair products that I finally caved in and decided to see what all the fuss was about. While I greatly admire Miko and Titi Branch, the stalwart and savvy sister duo who co-founded Miss Jessie’s, their curly buttercreme left me feeling like a bandwagon fool! First, if you are sensitive to strong scents, beware! This buttercreme is spiked with the morece of peppermint and is strong enough to double as smelling salts! Although the consistency of the product is creamy and plenty thick, you will definitely need more than a nickel-sized dollop, even for short hair. Second, you should not put too much stock in most of the claims. The product failed to define my curls and also failed to tame my edges. The first time I used the buttercreme, I followed the instructions as directed. Although my natural hair felt soft, it didn’t feel any more soft than usual. Neither did I feel like it hydrated my curls and coils. In fact, only an hour or two later, my hair frizzed up like I was a Berenstain Bear! The second time I used the product, I was more heavy handed. Mistake! Don’t over-saturate your hair! My hair felt greasy and downright gross. The product seemed to just sit on my hair instead of actually moisturize it. The ingredients also left much to be desired: acetylated lanolin, mineral oil, and petrolatum, to name a few. On top of all this, the curly buttercreme is extremely overpriced considering its mediocre ingredient list and results.

    Great product for curlies!

    This is a great minty light hold hair cream. The scent is great and quite refreshing. I use the line for curl definition and to use as a light hold for my curls (helps to make them stretch).

    Better than the Pudding

    I really like this product. I tried the Curly Pudding, and maybe I didn't use it correctly, but I was completely and totally unimpressed and upset due to the results I received for the hefty price tag I paid. But I have a different experience with the Buttercreme. I use it mainly for twist outs and for moisturizing and reviving 2nd, 3rd, hair, and I really love it. It's heavy enough to moree effective, yet light enough not to feel gummy or overly greasy, and though, depending on how much you use ( I have uber-thirsty hair, so I tend to use more product than the average person) it can feel a little greasy right after application, it penetrates my hair and utimately leaves it soft and with reduced frizz. I will definitely be buying this again. The only downside, as with all her products, is the price. But for me, it is worth it, since it actually works.
