Miss Jessie's makes fantastic products for curly girls. Period. (*This is a play on their tag line - and also happens to be true!).
They have expanded from just a few products a few years ago, including my all time favorite - Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding, to a line with several different curly hair styling products, shampoos, conditioners, and now an amazing deep conditioner, Super Sweetback Treatment.
This, thick, rich and creamy deep conditioner smells like cotton candy and is the softest shade of pink (kids are sure to love this one!). It makes even the driest curls of any texture, smooth, silky and more manageable. I not only used this on my little "sporty spice" who has very long, fine hair with loosely coiled curls, but also shared with a few other curly girls I know (and even someone with dreadlocks).
The feedback was all the same - the treatment felt amazing, and rinsed out well without weighing down the hair. Hair was left smoother, softer and with incredible shine. When hair was left to air dry, there was also much less frizz and hair was much easier to comb through and/or style.
In addition to this fantastic new product, Miss Jessie's also has an beautiful new salon opening in the Soho area of New York City in July, 2010! Note: The new salon will replace the current Miss Jessie's salon in Brooklyn, which will be closing.
I attended the launch party for the salon recently, and I can tell you, this is one of the most beautiful, relaxing and elegant hair salons I've ever been in.
Miss Jessie's founders (and sisters pictured left at the salon opening), Titi and Miko, attended to and were involved in every single detail for the salon, from the layout and design, to the type of chairs the clients will sit in, to the stunning decor.
No matter what type of curls you have (kinky, coils, loosely curled, etc.), I hope you visit the salon this summer for an amazing hair treatment, and to pick up a few of their amazing new products to maintain your look (they will have a mini Miss Jessie's boutique in the salon as well). - RLB
