Product Review- Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding

I’ve been a little reluctant to try the ‘wash & go’ style since I had no idea how it would come out and I rarely have the time for experimenting. I did get this sample of Miss Jessie’s famous Curly Pudding though, which I’ve been wanting to try anyway and I figured now is as good a time as any. So here’s what I did:

– Co-wash with Wen + Shea Moisture
-Separate into 4 sections
-Detangle (obviously)
-Saturate with the Curly Pudding (and I was heavy-handed)

So after all that I have to say I have mixed feelings about this whole experience. No dry time is definitely a plus, especially since I’ve been blowing my afro out all summer and figure I should give the heat a bit of a rest. I’m used to my fro being a bit bigger though, and the Curly Pudding didn’t elongate my curls the way it claimed it would 😦
Putting the Curly Pudding on it felt a bit sticky in my hands but I do like that I can run my hands through my hair and not have them come out greasy. I feel like this could be a good protective style though, which I’ve been looking for anyway.

Cant say I hate the Curly Pudding, but I’m not wildly impressed yet either, and as expensive as their products are I did expect more from them. I’m not swearing off Miss Jessies just yet though, I’ll give it another try with my next experiment- banding, and see how that goes. Stay tuned.

  1. i’ve never really liked the feel of miss jessies, on my hand or in my hair. i’ve also always thought it was ridiculously overpriced. when i wash and go, i use lavish curls moisturizer as a leave in (target), carol’s daughter original hair milk, and carol’s daughter mimosa hair honey for my scalp. they’re all pretty affordable and i like the way they smell 🙂

    • You know I love Carol’s Daughter stuff, I used to use the Mimosa Hair Honey on my locs so I may try it out again and see what the happens with that. Lavish Curls I haven’t tried yet, but if it’s at Target it’s probably my price point! The Miss Jessie’s is definitely overpriced…I’m debating writing them a letter!

  2. The Ojon (spelling?) humidity gel is pretty good. I’m enjoying a generous sample that was gifted to me. Not sure if the miss jessies is worth the dough
