    THOUGHTS ON THE “MISS JESSIE’S” PRODUCT LINE:

    1)The “MISS JESSIE’S” products USE MINERAL OIL
    & PETROLATUM (both of which damage both
    hair & skin) AS two of the KEY INGREDIENTS

    2) Titi & Miko – THE OWNER’S of the “Miss Jessie’s”
    product line (AND most of THE CLIENTS they choose
    to photograph) — achieve their hair-styles because
    they USE what they call a ”Silkener”’ (which is simply
    a mild relaxer / texturizer & made of CHEMICALS).

    3) The same results can be achieved for a fraction of
    the cost by going to a store and purchasing / applying
    the same dangerous (ex. relaxer / texturizer) as well
    as damaging (ex. mineral oil / petrolatum) products.

    4) People should save their money (and hair) by avoiding
    the cheaply-made / expensively-sold products (such as
    the ”Miss Jessie’s” line) that contain worthless and
    harmful ingredients such as mineral oil / petrolatum
    and / or are “chemically-dependent” to achieve results.

    5) The Owners of the ‘Miss Jessie’s’ product line appear
    to be no more inclined to reveal that their own hair
    (and that of the hair of the majority of the clients
    that are posted on their website ) has been “silkened”
    (i.e. chemically-processed) than they are to admit that
    two (2) of the main ingredients contained in their hair
    products are ‘mineral oil’ (“liquidum parrafinum”) and
    petrolatum — and actually try to downplay both facts.

    6) Meanwhile women found all over the US and
    Canada continue to unwittingly dole out a ton of
    money for a product which is essentially now the
    equivalent of taking a melted jar of ‘Blue Magic
    Hair Dressing’ or ‘Johnson’s Baby Oil’ and mixing
    it with a bottle of ‘Suave Instant Conditioner’

    (OK — maybe the Blue Magic/Johnson’s / Suave comment
    is a stretch –- but — one hopes that the point is still taken
    … when it comes to ‘ethnic’ or ‘naturally-textured’ hair’
    — Miss Jessie’s simply “misses the mark” entirely.) =D

    Well, well, well…sure enough. I checked the ingredients in its acclaimed Curly Pudding product, (below for all) and noted mineral oil; also known as “PARAFINIUM LIQUIDUM” is the second ingredient. Never tried Miss Jessie’s namely for its high price, but definitely good know. Thanks AP!

    Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding:
    Ingredients: water, parafinium liquidum, glycerin, triethanolamine, fragrance, carbomer, PEG-12 dimethicone, dipropylene glycol, silk amino acids, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, avocado oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, jojoba seed oil, macademia seed oil, oleth05, ethylhexyl methoxycinnanate, disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantion, ext. violet 2
