So...last week after class, I was dead set on purchasing henna, and since my school is close to Ricky's, I decided to take a stroll (knowing I wouldn't find what I wanted there anyway..but the PJ in me just had to go). So after walking the isles of Ricky's, I found myself standing in front the Miss Jessie's section.
I thought I swore off Miss Jessie's? Hmm...
Anyway, after a long drawn out debate with myself, I decided to pick up the Curly Meringue, since I did have somewhere to be on Thursday (Happy Hour woot! woot!!) and I wanted to let my hair out.
I know I haven't had the best results with Miss Jessie's products and the hair boards hate their products but I said what the heck, why not? just because..
I went home, and went straight to styling my hair. I decided on flat twists because, I only have to do 6 or 7 and let it dry and my hair will come out looking like Diana Ross..so off I went, sat my behind in front of the mirror, twisting away. I spritz my hair with a lil water, added some curly meringue and I was there daydreaming in the scent..I couldn't wait for it to dry!
After 3 twists, I got fed up..my hair is too thick and I was too tired to focus on making the hair neat, so I unraveled the twist and I was like cot damn! my hair is defined already!..this gave me hope, unlike the Curly Pudding - but that's another story.
I started on a twist out, with my new found hope and anxiety. After I finished up the twists, I let my hair air dry a little bit, and then tied my hair with a silk scarf.
The next morning I woke up my hair was STILL wet (dub-tee-eff?!?!). This is the saaaame exact thing that happened when I tried the curly pudding, and remembering this began to upset me because I should've known better but yet I insisted on giving them another try. Ugh!
I was set on letting my hair out though so I sat under the dryer and let my hair dry while I anticipated the events of the evening : )
When my hair dried, I started to take the twists out and I was slightly disappointed : (. My hair was frizzy! If it's one thing I hate is adding product to my hair and it still comes out frizzy! I could've used Eco Styler gel for all that! But I wanted to give Miss Jessie's another try.
Will I purchase this product again? Highly unlikely. Gonna add this to the list. I've tried the curly pudding before and the only thing I liked about it was my hair smelling like grape, everything else was a disappointment. My hair felt like it would never dry, and I didn't get any definition AT ALL. Normally I ignore these products due to the ingredients but they boast to be the best curl creme, so I gave them a chance and well...sigh!
I tried the 'poo before as well as the conditioner, it was ok..nothing special. If I had to choose between them and other products, the other products would be in my shopping bag. The only product I see myself trying from them again is the Quick Curls. I tried it before and it curled my hair while wet but when it dried it was dry and flaky, but i'm willing to give it another try. Hey! maybe i'm a sucker for disappointment, who knows? I'll let you know after I try it again lol.
Have you ever tried any of Miss Jessie's products? If yes, which one? and did you like it..lemme know..
BTW - I did get my henna, from Lush. Post about that coming soon : )
