LOL, you know I had to put that in the title, right?
Update: When I rinsed this stuff out, my hair felt gross! Like straw. Also, I could not cowash it out – there was a residue left behind, so I had to shampoo. If you want a curl creme, stick to Donna Marie or Curl Junkie.

I wanted to try mj’s when I first went natural as well, but like alot of you couldn’t justify spending that money… Then I went to a natural hair convention where they had a mj’s booth…the stylist and the models and the girls who tried the product at the booth all looked a hot mess!!! My curiosity quickly ended!!
I like the scowl the entire time you’re reading the jar. And I also think your hair looks more shrunken than normal…I guess its the dryness….
Agree totes with this statement above: “I do, however, credit Miss Jessie’s for becoming natural. So I thank their sketchy advertising for that. Their products were the first that I used.”
That jar was just TOO MUCH girl! Blech blech yucky!
i had a similar experience. it dried hard and crispy… gross. thank God i didn’t spend MY money on it. once again, you give the real. LOL @ the gagging.
one thing i love about your videos is that you generally follow the same script. you open the jar, smell it, squish it between your fingers, then smooth it on a curl. i kept waiting for you to do that with the MJSSC and it never happened. good call.
LOL yea…I didn’t want to put more of that stuff on my hair. No bueno!
I think you should try the curly meringue. I have had great looking curls when I rake the meringue thru, plus I can usually get at least 2 day hair from it. Only prob is the price, so I don’t use it consistently. Can’t wait to see you review it.
I used this product a few weeks ago to do a two strand twist. I put the SSC on each twist and detangled using a Denman brush and then proceeded to twist. I left my hair in twists for about four days and then I did a twistout and it yielded the best results that I have every seen!
My hair pattern is a little kinkier than yours I think. I am sorry you had a bad experience. I have a love hate relationship with Miss Jessie’s products, so I do understand.
I blogged about the SSC on my blog and I want you to see my picture of my twist out.
Love your twist out L. Michelle. Perhaps I’ll give Miss Jessie’s another try.
I completely agree with you about Miss Jessie’s products and marketing technique. I do, however, credit Miss Jessie’s for becoming natural. So I thank their sketchy advertising for that. Their products were the first that I used. . .I was willing to pay the high price for the results I saw online. I tried the Curly Pudding, Curly Meringue, the Buttercreme and the shampoo and conditioner. I wasn’t satisfied with any of it. The pudding, meringue and butter creme weighed my hair down, my hair did not hold moisture at all. . .by the end of the day it was a frizzy mess. And the shampoo and conditioner was a joke for the price. I kept going back to the product because as a new natural I thought it was me. . .and ididnt understand how everyone in the stores I was going to raved about the company and told me how all of the othe customers loved it. Also, I wondered how they could get away with charging such ridiculous prices if it was a bad product. But I guess it works on some and they make a lot of money preying on the uneducated , newly naturals (like I once was). . . Now I read the ingredients lables and think if I knew then what I know now. . . INHO, it is just gook.
I’d love to hear a review on how your hair responds to the Merigue.
Oh my gosh! I misread the title of this video and thought you went and got the “silkener” *cough* texturizer *cough* done.
I looked at their website when I first started taking care of my hair but all curiosity went out the window when I saw the prices. I just can’t justify spending $40 to $60 dollars for 16 oz jar of anything… even if it had magic in it. 😦
LOL! Chile please…there will be no texturizer going in my head!
