Continuing on with our wash and go series, we are talking about Miss Jessie’s Products today. Are they good or bad for hair? Are Miss they worth that hefty price tag?
I won two products in a giveaway a while back, the Curly Pudding and Curly ButterCreme, from the blog Baby Bella Hair. I’ve heard good and bad things about this line. I, personally, always shied away from the brand because of their prices and ingredients, but I was curious to try the products I had won, so, we used them for a wash and go.

Performance and Results
Once her hair was washed, conditioned and detangled, I first applied the ButterCreme moisturizer, then I raked the Curly Pudding through her hair in sections then let it air dry, as I’ve do for all wash and go’s.
I was actually thrilled with her curls…just not so much with the price tag or ingredients. I was disappointed to see that Petroleum and Mineral Oil were in the top 4 on the ButterCreme’s ingredients list, I would definitely not use this as our regular moisturizer, petroleum products have never truly provided moisture for my daughters hair. There are actually several ingredients in both of these products that are on our list of ingredients to avoid. I did love the way her hair looked, the curls were soft, there wasn’t much shrinkage, no frizz but… I wouldn’t pay the asking price of these products on a regular basis to include them in our routine. I was also hoping they would keep her hair more moisturized and looking better longer than they did.
