Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding Reviews
Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding is a setting cream that is used on wet hair to define the curl and fight hair shrinkage. (Shrinkage is the length you lose as your hair dries and shrinks up closer to your scalp after being wet.)
Curly hair tends to shrink up and poof out as it dries, and instead of curls hanging down, we often end up with frizz expanding outward. But Curly Pudding prevents this by adding weight and stretching the curls, so the hair hangs down instead of puffing out. It sort of freezes the curls as they would appear in their wet state. Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding is fairly thick and gives a firm hold. Keep reading to find out more about this and other Miss Jessie's Hair Products.

Using Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding
Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding is much heavier than Miss Jessie's Quick Curls.
This product definitely works best on Type 3b (it worked great on my best
friend, who had been trying to recreate her Ouidad salon results at home) and Type 4a hair (like mine). Type 4b's with kinkier hair will see diminished results,
although some 4b's say that mixing Curly Pudding with Curly Buttercreme
gives them a texture that they like.
True Story; When Miko
used to use Curly Pudding on me at the salon after my silkeners
(chemical straightening process done at Miss Jessie's salon), it worked
great, but whenever I used it at home, it would make my hair crispy and
crunchy. I've heard other people complain about this, too. Miko
explained to me I was using WAY too much product, and that my hair
wasn't wet enough when I was applying it. So make sure when you use the
product that you only put a thin layer of Curly Pudding in each
section, and that you go over each application it with a spray bottle
of water. Some people also recommend combining Curly Pudding with Curly
Buttercreme, or putting Buttercreme on AFTER applying Curly hair Pudding to
keep the hair feeling soft.
Curly Pudding is also the product they use at Miss Jessie's salon to do the "shingling" (manual curl stretching) technique, which is difficult to pull off at home and requires a lot of product and a lot of time. I wouldn't advise doing shingling at home.
To be honest, people either love or hate Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding. If shrinkage and curl definition are issues for you, I recommend you try the smaller, 8 oz. size of Curly Pudding and see how your hair reacts to it.
