I vowed long ago that I would “never give Miss Jessie any of my money.” But I kept hearing about the curly pudding Miss Jessie makes and broke down a month or two ago and purchased a jar — a big jar of it. I figured why risk liking it and not having enough. So I went all out and bought the 16-ounce size for $38.
First off, things you should know. The curly pudding is not a leave-in conditioner. It is a styler. While you can use it alone, you may find that you need to use it in addition to some other products too. I use it alone. As with all Miss Jessie’s products, there is a process for using it.
The first step in both options is to wash hair and apply curly pudding to damp hair. For application, section off hair and smooth on the cream, then comb the cream through each section. Then you can either let the hair air dry or dry it under a hooded dryer. On the first couple of tries, I let mine dry naturally and to me the results were blah.
Today I did the second step though, which is after hair is mostly dry, take a blow dryer with a concentrator nozzle and stretch the roots with it. The result I got was a lot better than not doing this. Curly pudding’s claim to fame is that it elongates and loosens curls and kinks. Going through the entire process, it does. I called it “relaxing” my curls. My only gripe is that while it did elongate curls, they lacked definition. In order to get both, you either have to use more curly pudding, or more likely, use a separate product for curl definition. I will keep working with the curly pudding to achieve perfect results, but I am pretty happy with today’s curls.
