I used to be in love with Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding. Recently, I’ve been using more lightweight less greasy products as I’ve realized what works better for m hair to ensure its healthiness.
First of all, I just want to say the Curly Pudding does everything it says it will do; it gives extreme curl definition, gets rid of frizz, and establishes a firm, shiny hold. The Curly Pudding is one of those few products that have given me amazing curl definition. Honestly, it’s been a long time since I’ve put the Curly Pudding in my hair because I’ve tried a lot of other products that are more light-weight and less greasy and I haven’t been twisting my hair as much.
When I put the Curly Pudding in my hair recently, I almost couldn’t stand the smell. It’s good but it’s really strong (no wonder they make an unscented version). I got used to the smell as I started twisting my hair. When I finished the twisting using the Curly Pudding, my hair was definitely defined but it was very greasy. I’m not a fan of greasy products. Plus, with the Curly Pudding, my options are limited. I can only use it when I twist my hair because my hair has to be wet and the Curly Pudding is more for set styles because of its firm, gel-like hold. The Curly Pudding won’t work on dry hair and if I try to use it to style my hair in the morning (with the LOC method and a spritz bottle of water), my hair has major shrinkage.
It’s a plus for the curl definition (extreme definition, yes!) but a major minus for the greasiness and shrinkage. Plus, it’s expensive.
The reality is that I’m going to finish the bottle because that little 8 oz. bottle was 22 dollars! I like the Curly Pudding but there are definitely better options for my hair.
