To hear that I had won the Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft Curls ($14.00) hair gel from Birchbox‘s Miss Jessie’s Birchbloggers giveaway event was delightful! I have won three products over the last few years, and it was a wonderful feeling to know that soon I would be trying my first Miss Jessie’s product ever: Jelly Soft Curls.
Watch our senor beauty editor Nicole’s curls go from limp to va-va-va VOOM with the help of Pantene curl-inducing products and celebrity hairstylist Danilo. See Before/After photos —> HERE!
I won it because I had asked about how to get curls without the crunch via social media. I remember parading around with the wet-curls look in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, and they were just plain crunchy!
In texture, I mean! I would often make fun of the sound that my hair made when trying to make it look and feel more manageable!
We rounded up the Best Haircuts for hair that’s curly, textured, kinky or coily. See photos —> HERE!
This product, with its invisible soft-to-the touch gel, did the trick alright. I had my hair done previously by Danilo and kept that look for two days, as I loved it so much.
After showering, I applied the Jelly Soft Curls to my damp hair, lightly scrunched the curls in sections, leaving them in place and allowed them to air-dry.

Hours later, I gently used my hands to go through my soft curls to add a bit more volume. And the rest is history. I will now add Miss Jessie’s Jelly Soft Curls to my daily hair routine. As much as I take care of my skin, I know I must put that same dedicated effort into my hair as well.
Available now online at www.missjessies.com, you get a lot of product for your money. I just used a dollop (enlarged in picture to show texture), then rubbed my palms together and started to spread it evenly throughout my curls in sections.
Note: On the site it claims that this product does NOT chemically alter the color of your hair. Thank goodness! As you all know I have highlights, lowlights, etc. and I would be truly upset if it changed my hair color in any way. I just have soft curls now! Ahh… No more crunch!
