Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment — It’s Like Hair Candy!
As a curly-haired gal, I’m on the eternal hunt for products that will tame my sometimes unruly mop, but that will restore luminosity, movement and bounce to each wavy strand. I’d heard wonders about Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding and, when I tried it, I felt like the hair angels sang. My curls went into high gear moments after I applied it onto my damp hair and, at that moment, I knew I’d be a life-long fan the Miss Jessie’s line. Now, my love has been intensified (*cue Lionel Richie’s “Endless Love”*) after trying Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment, a deep conditioner that features fortifying and softening ingredients like mango butter, shea butter, and centella asiatica (which is considered to have antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, and which may aid circulation and hence boast anti-aging benefits).
Now that summer is here, those of us with color-treated, frizzy, and dry hair need to be particularly vigilant about offering our manes an extra dose of TLC. All the time we spend basking in the sun can take damaged hair to the edge of flatlining, so it’s beyond essential to whip out the deep conditioning treatments, leave-in sprays, and oils with UV protection.
Like most deep conditioners, you should apply Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment to damp hair, working it from root to ends and combing through each section. Then, tuck your hair into a shower cap and leave it in for 25-30 minutes. When you rinse your hair out, you’ll instantly feel the difference — your hair will seem softer, thicker, and more supple.
The one drawback for me was the product’s smell. While some with toddler-like sensibilities will doubtless swoon over the treatment’s bubblegum scent, I found it irksomely saccharine, like touring through a Bubblicious factory. That being said, it’s a small price to pay considering how much stronger, bouncier, and healthier your hair will feel after just one session with this miracle hair whip.
