We always love a good Miss Jessie’s product, and this one is no exception to that rule. It helps create soft, natural textures for definition that isn’t stiff or crunchy. Apply it through your wet or fresh from the shower damp curls to activate the product, and dry naturally or with a diffuser.
Last but not least, the favorite shampoo line of so many also offers curl care products.

Apply it through wet curls for styling, or throughout dry curls to reactive second or third day strands.
