I heard about Miss Jessie’s when my mom started using their products because someone introduced them to her. The famous curl cream that natural women have raved about. After researching these products, I decided not to write an individual review for each product because it makes no sense to. I went to Miss Jessies.com and when I clicked on “Shop”, I noticed that there was no ingredient list for any of their products so I decided to check out Miss Jessie’s on Curlmart.com which always provides the ingredients of every product they sell. I am very leery of site’s that do not provide the ingredients of their products(Thank God for Curlmart). After reading the ingredients of every styling product made by Miss Jessie’s I wouldn’t recommend anyone to use their products.
The famous Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding ingredients:
water, parafinium liquidum, glycerin, triethanolamine, fragrance, carbomer, PEG-12 dimethicone, dipropylene glycol, silk amino acids, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, avocado oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, macademia seed oil, oleth05, ethylhexyl methoxycinnanate, disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantion, ext. violet 2
The second ingredient is as absolute “no no” for black hair. Mineral oil(parafinium liquidum) once again. I will not shell out $38 for a 16oz jar of mineral oil and water!
The famous Miss Jessie’s Buttercreme ingredients:
Deionized Water, Acetylated Lanolin, Beeswax , Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Carbomer 940, Fragrance, Peppermint Oil, Castor Oil, Dilaurate Laneth-15, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Hydrolyzed Animal Protein, Imidazolidinyl, Jojoba Oil, Laneth 15, Mineral Oil ,Methyl Paraben, Milk Protein, Panthenol, Paraffin, PEG-400, PEG-100, Stearate, Petrolatum, Propyl Paraben, Triethanolamine, Vitamin E, Wheat Germ Oil.
Not only does this contain the cheap oil known as lanolin, but it also contains beeswax, petrolatum and mineral oil! The Miss Jessie’s Baby Butter Creme is no better, it’s the same formulation without the fragrance.
I could list the ingredients of all their products myself, but you can easily go to Curlmart.com and see for yourself that every product that’s offered by Miss Jessie’s is laden with cheap oils and waxes that are damaging to our hair. I do not recommend the use of these products. For all the money that they charge for a 16oz jar of their creme’s they should be using better ingredients, instead of using cheap ingredients for more profit.
I love companies that make hair products with our hair’s health in mind, but I despise the one’s that are more concerned with how fat their pockets are!
