The Good:

  • According to the official Miss Jessie’s website: “Stretch Silkening Crème, an amazing addition to our ever expanding curl crème empire. “How’s it different from the rest?” I’ll tell you. Stretch Silkening Crème is a quicker to dry whipped soufflé that delivers an amazing plump curl and a brilliant shine. Fabulous for fingerstyling. The lightest of the curl crème bunch. P.S. This is not Miko’s chemical Silkener technique. Instructions for use: Apply product while hair is soaking wet for full coverage based on your length and density. Do not rinse out. Air dry or dry under an overhead dryer. For maximum stretch silkening: After curls are fully dried grab a section and stretch downward for tension. Using a blowdryer with a nozzle attachment blast heat from root to midshaft. This will further stretch those kinks to curls. Enjoy! THIS PRODUCT IS NOT CHEMICALLY ALTERING The must have maintenance product, Baby Buttercreme and Curly Buttercreme, add to hair the day after styling” 
  • I love the feel of the product! As described above it has a whipped soufflé consistency that goes on the hair very easily while wet
  • The product is extremely light and a small amount goes a long way
  • For each section of my flat twist I used a fingertip amount and that was more than enough! 
  • I get my most defined twist outs with this product, and it lasts for at least 3 days

The Bad:

  • Out of all the mainstream brands of natural hair products Miss Jessie’s is a little pricey (I purchased the 8oz for $22)
  • If you get a little overzealous with the application of the product it can leave your twist out too defined and not natural looking! Go super light when applying this product 

Tips for using this product:

  • If you have access to a hooded dryer, I would highly recommend using that method to dry your hair. Your twist out will come out more defined and last longer!

    Awww thanks so much! (yep! my secret is out) lol But, I honestly believe that sharing is caring!!! I love this method of twisting and it's pretty much the only one that I use! Try it out and let me know if you have any questions on anything that I didn't cover!

    do you dry your hair before you do you twist out?

    Hi! I towel dry my hair before twisting..but as I twist I use my spray bottle to saturate my hair with water to make detangling easier!
