A Review of Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding

By January 27th, 202115 Comments

A Review of Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding
won the first Miss Jessie’s Giveaway. I promptly sent her the 8 oz jar of Curly Pudding, and as promised, she submitted her review!!

“I tried the Curly Pudding by Miss Jessie’s last night. It’s a great moisturizer. It’s not too greasy or sticky. It didn’t make my hair hard at all. It smells like taffy candy. Overall it’s a good product. I will be making future purchases. This will be my top moisturizer for now on.”

Here’s a link to Pam’s Fotki.

Thanks PAM!!!!

    I tried Curly Buttercreme today and I must say it is so much better than using the Eco styler that makes my waves and curls hard.
    This creme made my hair so soft and in a curly fro like I have dreamed of since I BC'D in June. Went out today to buy the larger tub of this so I would not run out! My hair is soft and very moisturized!!I can see that it helped to define and moisturized my curles and waves! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

    There are only a few companies out there that are actually using non synthetic/no cone ingredients that are good LONG TERM for curls. They are expensive because the ingredients are expensive, but they are not making half the profit margin that the companies using cheap mineral based/synthetic/and harsh ingredients are.

    Good companies because they were all started in the best interest of natural hair. All have worked well for our family although my LOVES are Oyin and Little Penguins Online. I may have missed one or two good companies -apologies, but when I compare the list of ingredients in hair care now, I see how many "unatural", "NATURAL" products are being marketed to me.

    I purchased the Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme and I think they have changed the ingredients in it. I purchased a jar from Target and oh my goodness my hair looks awful. It is hard/spongey and dry.

    When I first purchased that buttercream off of their site it did wonders to my hair, but now the product is awful. The products are way too pricey and I don't think I will purchase any Miss Jessie's again.

    1)The “MISS JESSIE’S” products USE MINERAL OIL
    & PETROLATUM (both of which damage both
    hair & skin) AS two of the KEY INGREDIENTS

    2) Titi & Miko – THE OWNER’S of the “Miss Jessie’s”
    product line (AND most of THE CLIENTS they choose
    to photograph) — achieve their hair-styles because
    they USE what they call ”Silkener”' (which is simply
    a mild relaxer / texturizer & made of CHEMICALS).

    3) The same results can be achieved for a fraction of
    the cost by going to a store and purchasing / applying
    the same dangerous (ex. relaxer / texturizer) as well
    as damaging (ex. mineral oil / petrolatum) products.

    4) People should save their money (and hair) by avoiding
    the cheaply-made / expensively-sold products (such as
    the ”Miss Jessie’s” line) that contain worthless and
    harmful ingredients such as mineral oil / petrolatum
    and / or are “chemically-dependent” to achieve results.

    I use the sniffer sensitive Curly Pudding (I hate the smell of the original, makes me gag) on my hair. I wash it every morning, work it in and let it air dry. I don't do any of the shingling or other techniques they recommend. When my hair does dry completely (takes about 1-2 hrs, the curls are defined. I wish it would do a better job of moisturizing on its own though. It's not something that you can expect to leave in your hair for more than one day, so don't even think about it. The pricing is quite high. I pay about $25 for the small jar. I will try this Kinky Curly Custard that everyone seems to be raving about! Good luck.

    I have used Miss Jessies several times. I used both the pudding and the meringue. I like them initally, but the cons are the PRICE and that they both flake!! You have to wash your hair every day or else you will look a hot mess. Plus as someone else mentioned, it is unmanagable after sleeping over night. I have put the butter creme in after over night and it would be ok and keep the curl, except you have all this flaked up product. I am looking for a cheaper, bettr alternative. I will try the KCCC next.

    I tried Jessie's Curly Pudding for a french braid-out and I didn't like it very much. It smells very nice and has pretty good hold, but it made my hair feel greasy and a little bit on the stiff side.

    I tried Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding but did not like the results. Once it dried, my hair felt hard and dry.

    And after laying down overnight, it was totally unmanagabele. No softness.

    I wear a two-strand twist style now so don't know if it works better with this style. I think it would still leave the hard feeling hard.

    Too much money for the limited results. Carol's Daughter products are much, much better.

    We need to focus on healthy hair and having tried both products Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding ain’t it. Kinky Curly Curling Custard is organic and much better for conditioning the hair long term. It will give you the shine without the heaviness of Miss Jessie’s. Not to mention Miss J is beyond over-priced for the quality of product. It isn’t even about being expensive, it is just not worth the sticker price.

    I am a 4B, have tried Miss Jessie’s Curly Buttercream on dry hair and twist out. Really great, moist, shiny defined hair. Nothing else really worked except a cheapie, Twists N Loc’s Honey Wax with Aloe Vera. For 4 B hair these two products really work. I will try the Curly Pudding and go under the dryer as suggested by Miss Jessie’s Website YouTube Turorial.

  • Sarah Brooke says:

    I haven’t tried it I’ve been wanting to see peopels reviews on this product because I was deciding on to by Miss Jessies or Kinky Curly. I’m going to by the kinky curly

  • Angelique says:

    the only thing i liked about this stuff was the grapy smell it didnt do much for my curls…i tried all the techniques from the site and each time ended up with undefined curls or a big sloppy puffish thing and a waste of $40 dollars….it doesnt take much for my hair to curl so i wasnt happy with the results but something wants me to get a sample size and try again with the twist-n-curl…i agree that IC gel works better and KCCC is even better a God Send I must say…but if try i again i will comment back

  • Nika says:

    Yes, I’ve tried this product numerous times. Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don’t. My IC fantasia gel works better and it is only 3.99 versus $38 plus $10 shipping. What makes it work is this product has a lot of cheap and inexpensive ingredients. I can’t justify the price. I have half a jar I need to use up. Just my two cents.

    Oh, an alternative to Miss Jessies pudding is the Kinky-curly curling custard. It’s lighter, it’s all natural, gives great shine, hold and moisture and it’s about $10 cheaper. The kinky-curly custard works best with the knot today leave-in. Combining it with other leave-in are a hit or miss.
