Hair Care Product Review Swag

Miss Jessie’s Hair Care Review

January 9, 2012

Miss Jessie’s was a sponsor of the Pre-New Years Bash that I attended recently.  The swag was incredible!  There was full size Miss Jessie’s products included!  I have never tried Miss Jessie’s on Peyton, mainly due to the price.  I did not want to spend the money since I didn’t know anything about it. 

You all know Peyton has a ton of hair and it is a battle and a lot of work to try and comb a 1 1/2 year olds hair!  To add, I don’t know how to braid! All I can do is the two pony tails and try and twist it.  Peyton hair can be really dry and kinky curly!  So I try to use organic or sulfate free products on her hair. 

This is Peyton’s typical hair after I have done all I can freshly styled!

 So that is what I am working with.

I reviewed the Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo and the Curly Pudding by Miss Jessies.  All Miss Jessies products can be used in both children and adults hair.
I washed Peyton’s hair with the Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo.  I LOVED it!  It after washing her hair did not feel dry and it was easy to comb out.  Trust me, I can tell right away when her hair is easy to comb out.  So if you need help in the detaingling department no matter the hair type, this is your stuff!
Next, while damp, I used the Curly Pudding to twist Peyton’s hair.  I used generous amount of Curly Pudding on each section of her hair.  Normally Peyton’s hair shrinks up really fast when it is wet but the twist were more stretched out then normal. 

Here is a picture of her twisted the next morning.  As you can see I can’t part either.  Normally her twist are pretty shrunk tight the next morning but you can see they are still hanging down.  So far so good.  Peyton wore the twist all day. 

Day two, I finally took out the twist.  They were not hard or crusty, which I liked.  My swag did NOT have the Baby Butter Cream in it that is recommended to use the next day.  I used a moisturizer that I had on hand to rub over her hair and edges.

Here is her hair day three before I added any moisturizing products.  Again, I did not have the Miss Jessies Baby Buttercreme that is recommended to use.
  • Love how it stretches out the curl.
  • Great definition of curl.
  • Hair is soft.
  • Minimum build up or residue.
  • I do not think this is a all Natural or Organic product.  I could not find where it stated it was.
  • I didn’t have the Baby Buttercream to use along with the Curling Pudding.  Well that maybe should not be a con but some people did get some in their bag : (
  • Price!  Miss Jessie’s is very expensive!
  • The amount of product you need to use per styling.
In conclusion, I really liked the product and I am excited to use it again in the future.  The detangler is a must for Peyton moving forward.  I love the definition the Curly Pudding gave Peyton’s hair.  I plan on purchasing the high $38 Baby Buttercream.  I can’t wait to try it on my hair when I wear it in it’s natural state.  If you have curly, kinky, or wavy hair even if you are white, black or Hispanic, Miss Jessies products seems to be pretty universal.  They have a great styling guide online to help folks like me.  Even though the price is high, I think MissJessies is worth the money (cough).
Have you tried Miss Jessie’s?  If not what products do you use on you or your child’s hair?

*Disclosure:  I was given the Miss Jessie’s Super Slip Sudys shampoo and curling pudding in a gift bag at an event.  Opinions expressed are my own.

    It looks so cute. Tristin’s hair is really dry, maybe I should try Miss Jessie’s since I rarely cut their hair short.

    I did not have a good Miss Jessie’s experience but I know many other people do. We use Shea Moisture or whatever I make. I usually make my own shea butter mix but since I ran out and am too lazy to make sure we are enjoying Shea Moisture.
    Also, I am testing out Olive Oil on my daughter too. Her hair is really dry so we just keep experimenting!

    I’;ve used it on my daughters hair, and sorry – not a fan. Mainly due to the high price….

    1. We use Deva Curl No-Poo Shampoo, about once or twice a month. (This stuff is IT!)

    2. Regular ole Suave conditioners for a condition wash once a week. Usually the kind for dry or color treated hair. Then comb out…

    3. KINKY CURLY – Knot Today to help with the comb out. And then everyday for a refreshened look, frizz free finish.

    4. KINKY CURLY – Curling Custard to set the curls. Only right after the wash.

    That’s our story {process} and we are sticking to it!!!! 😉

    Kinky Curly is by far a better price range and the results are fantastic. {for us….}

    I use Ms Jessie’s in my hair. I only buy it when it’s on sale at the end of the year for buy 1 get 1 free. If you like them on Facebook you will know exactly when the sales starts.. usually the day after Thanksgiving through the end of the year. This year they ran the sale in Target as well.

    I love Peyton’s hair.

    I have rarely seen V’s scalp. Her hair is very tightly coiled and I don’t comb or brush it regurlarly. I recently started using Shea Moisture conditioner on her hair and that has helped with the dryness.

    If I ever luck up on some free or deeply discounted miss Jessie’s, I’ll give it a try. She needs more product.

    My daughter has TONS of hair so I have tried so many products. I’m still on the hunt for a moisturizer to meet miss Jessie baby buttercreme, but for now it really is the best. Two great products I recommend are carols daughter hair milk. It really is one of the best products for natural hair. It’s very moisturizing and it holds your curls but there is no crunch. It’s defines and tames frizz. The other is Kinky curly knot today. It’s the best leave in conditioner I have found.

    My son has curly and straight hair and Ive tried I don’t know how many different natural hair care products on his hair and they all made his hair look very dry and hard. My beautician introuduced me to Miss Jessies I was a little skeptical at first mainly because of the price but I have to admit I love the baby buttercream it gives his hair life and lots of moisture expensive but worth it
