(Caitlin Miller/StyleBistro)When it comes to my hair, I'll try just about anything. (Anyone who went to high school or college with me knows this to be a true statement.) But between my dye jobs, straightening daily for years—don't worry, I don't do that anymore—and a severe misuse of probably every hair product my teenage-self tried, my naturally wavy, thick hair was left dry, damaged, and well, gross.
Now that I'm older and sick of having unmanageable hair, I've been playing chemist and experimenting with a number of products and questionable cocktails of serums and sprays. Needless to say, when a bottle of Miss Jessie's Leave-In Condish hit my desk, I thought, "why not." With pumpkin seed, soybean seed, spirulina, and aloe as key ingredients, I was excited to reap some of the moisturizing, detangling, and frizz-fighting benefits from this cream.
(Courtesy Miss Jessie's)I used Miss Jessie's after a nice and thorough shampoo and conditioning. Confession: I am normally very leery of putting on heavy products directly after washing for fear of undoing all the cleaning I just did. So my neurotic self cautiously applied a nickel-sized amount all over my hair. (Turns out Miss Jessie's Condish is quite light and doesn't build up.) I ran a comb through my hair, and what did I find? Not a knot to be had! Although the conditioner is meant to be used prior to styling, I decided to let my hair air dry sans product. (Dangerous for a girl with frizzy hair, I know.) What I found when my hair was completely dry were soft, not-at-all frizzy, mermaid-like waves.
While I will admit that to the outside world my hair probably didn't look that much different, hence my decision not to include a selfie (you're welcome), to me, it was soft, not oily, and most importantly, clean!
