I’ve been writing this here blog for four years now, and I’ve learned that there are a few products that bring out a natural hair junkie’s cravings and opinions more than Miss Jessie’s.

Whether it’s the Curly Pudding or the Baby Buttercreme or the Rapid Recovery Treatment – there’s a Miss Jessie’s product that natural haired bellas are buzzing about.

It’s been both amazing and inspiring to watch the brand grow. Now Miss Jessie’s isn’t a little brand that could anymore. It’s mainstream enough to be on shelves at Target — now it’s at 200 new Target locations!

On a related hair note can you provide some professional feedback on the benefit if any of using hot combs or flat irons on hair of children aged from babyhood to age 11?

Please help! How do I combat shrinkage in a humid climate? Houston, Texas is ridiculously humid even in the winter! BTW, your dreamy creamy products are available at my local Target. My poor husband thought I was being attacked the way I screamed when I saw the endcap with Miss Jessie's.

just out of curiosity would you say people are more vocal about miss jessie's than carol's daughter? maybe it's where i live (fort greene, brooklyn, ny) but i hear way more about the latter (good & bad).

Interesting. I bet you're right about your location being significant--it was the birthplace of Carol's Daughter, after all. I've always had some trouble making sense out of the pricing of of Miss Jessie's in the face of their ingredients, and that does seem to be an issue of contention with some others out there (google it).

OMG BABYHOOD???? I can't imagine a little kid not moving around enough to avoid getting burns on her ears or edges. I doubt there's any "benefit" to it, but I know from when I was natural but hot combing it trains your hair and eventually will relax the curl. There was a large difference between the hair being hotcombed frequently and the newer growth, even when wet.

I would like know why the put petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraens in their products when they are detrimental to hair health. I will never patron this company for that reason. Additionally, they do not offer a sulfate free shampoo....

well the pricing is a whole other ball of wax but i know the ingredients and over all "success" of both product lines is always some kind of debate.

A quick overview of how much of the product to use on a one inch strand(dry twist style) and the amount of moisture which is needed in that strand. It seems when I use more product or not enough moisture for a section(one inch) of hair, it affects the amount of hold. On a similar note I think the instructions on use of product should be clearer or perhaps the videos and instructions on the website should show more clearly the amount of water and product to use on each strand; if the answer depends on hair volume or any other factors please explain. Thanks so much.

I get more searches for Miss Jessie's, but I know natural women have been very vocal about both brands!
