Product Review: Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curl Cream, B

Since I've been traveling pretty extensively as of late, I've had the opportunity to really explore the fruits of each month's Birchbox.

Typically said products come wrapped sweetly in pink, tied with ribbon and in a size that is oh-so-airport friendly. Over the past few weeks I've taken a shining to Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curl Cream ...especially when I am literally running out the door in the morning. Throw in locks, scrunch/mess and go. This Bubblicious smelling cream offers 8 ounces for $32 on Birchbox.

Birchbox Breakdown:
It’s a cardinal curly hair rule: work with your strands, not against them. Miss Jessie’s makes that easy with this weightless styling cream, which enhances hair’s natural bounce and shape without any heaviness. Whether your hair is naturally kinky, curly, or wavy, the moisturizing formula does away with frizz and dryness. And since it’s packed full of moisturizing botanicals, it doubles as a rescue treatment for fried and over-processed hair.

How it Works:
This light-as-air cream gets to work immediately, sealing in hydration and adding shine, while also softening and strengthening each strand. The secret to the formula is its winning combo of plant extracts, including grape seed, lavender, and chestnut. You can thank an infusion of ginger flower and lime for the fresh, sweet scent.

My Review:

The Good: It's a curl cream, so if you have a fair amount of wave or curl in your hair, this product is great for a pretty sheen and soft lock of cur. It also "builds" well on dirty hair, so feel free to mist your locks with water and scrunch some of this product in to curl up.

The Bad: You have to work with this product a bit if your hair is too dry or too damp. It's also pretty pricey! 

The Verdict: B from me. Once you find the manner in which to use this curl cream, it's pretty dreamy. I had to work with it a bit in the beginning, but it's a great product for your waves/curls if you're on the go!
