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.
