Let's face it once summer arrives, for us naturally curly haired girls, there is absolutely no use in trying to battle with what our hair naturally wants to do...which is to suck up the summer humidity and curl to its utmost content. And why would you even want to spend precious time indoors trying to battle with your hair anyway when you could just wash, apply a bit of product and just go enjoy summer in all of its glory?
I plan on spending most of my time at the pool or on the beach and the last thing I want to worry about while partaking in is frizzy straight hair that wants to go curly or weird, crunchy, "jheri curled" looking hair. So in an effort to embrace my natural texture but still have soft, smooth curls, I decided to give Miss Jessie's Jelly Soft Curls a try.
First of all I went weak in the knees by the scent of this product. I am a huge fan of clean, fresh scents...especially during the warmer months and this product has the most amazing clean, fresh but still feminine scent--exactly how I would want my hair to smell...all of the time! I followed the suggested application process, which stated that I should squeeze a quarter size of Jelly Soft Curls into my palms and apply it section to a section of my damp (not wet) curls. I loved that this styling gel never felt sticky or tacky in my palms during the application process. I actually took a gamble with this product using it a few hours before a photo shoot and I was ecstatic with the results. For the shoot I had curls that were bouncy, shiny, soft and full of movement. My curls never went limp or got crunchy and frizzy. This was my first time trying Miss Jessie's products and I am definitely a fan and cannot wait to try a few of her other products. Needless to say I shall be embracing and reveling in my natural curls all summer long!
