Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue Review

This post has been a long time coming, and I am so sorry for that. It's been a crazy week and I'm finally getting back to some normalcy.  I promised you guys a review and don't think I forgot!

So I did the twist out and I have to say that I am quite impressed with the results. One day I will do a tutorial on how I do my twist outs, but today I am just going to do the review for the Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue.

If you read my last post, you would know that I got my Miss Jessie's sample kit in the mail on Saturday. I was so excited to try out Miss Jessie's cause I've heard some great things about it and I must say that the Curly Meringue is amazing! First thing off let's talk about the smell. As I've mentioned before, I'm big on scents and how my products smell and this cream smells great. It's not too heavy, but I wouldn't call it light either. It is, however, very pleasant. The consistency is very nice as well. It's nice and thick but not greasy at all. 

So I washed and deep conditioned my hair and used a small amount of the Curly Meringue on each twist. I liked how it immediately showed definition in my curls as I worked it through my hair. After I two-strand twisted my whole head I tied it up and went to sleep. 

2 days after twisting...

I ended up having to leave the twists in my hair for an extra day so they were really set by the time I was ready to take them out on Monday. As I took them out, I noticed that my curls were really defined and bouncy. There were a few flecks of product in my hair towards the front where I used more of the cream, but other than that my hair felt soft and my curls held for 2 days!

After untwisting...

 I tried to use the Meringue again this past Saturday for a wash and go but I hated it! It just didn't work for my hair at all. At first it felt oily and a little sticky and then as it dried my hair felt crispy and hard. Just not a good look at all. 

Overall I like the Curly Meringue for twist outs but that's about it. I don't think I would buy it because the 8 oz is $22 at Target and the 16 oz is $38 online..........I can definitely find some better products to do my twist outs with that are way cheaper. In fact today I picked up Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Curl Souffle. I've heard some good things about using them together for twist outs so I'm going to give them a try. What do you guys use on your twist outs?

Well I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day (kinda late, I know) and I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Love ya!
