  1. Hi! Gabriela. Thank you for this post now i know what to look in products. I just tried out some samples of jessicurl products and i was searching if i should buy the whole line, its my second day now using it and i am amazed. Before i was using bounce curl cream gel but doesnt hold without frizz more 8 hours. my every day life was like monica in the episode of friends in the caribean. the curly method lately has been too overwhelming cause so many product and lines and i had trouble finding one, none seams to work. i live in rainforest, caribean beach front city in latin america with impledictable hot weather, rains 9 months per year with humity of 70% to 90% every day and the other 3 months is drier but it could rain too Lol. My hair its great those 3 months but not the other 9. i have 3b hair finger size riglets super fine and medium porosity.

  2. HI Cailin! I really enjoyed this review of Jessicurl. Thank you! After fighting my 2b/2c waves for the last 20 years with a blow dryer and a flat iron, I am finally embracing them and getting lots of comments. I just started a few months ago and have found the hardest part has been achieving the protein/moisture balance. I have fine low porosity hair that doesn’t seem to need a lot of protein but I am confused because I keep reading that hair needs protein to be healthy… If Jessicurl products are protein free, how/when are you adding protein? I like the light products for my waves but wonder how to get the protein it needs to be healthy in if I use this line? Thanks so much for your help. I have learned so much by following you!

    1. Hi Jill, it’s Gabriella, not Cailín. Jessicurl is mainly protein free. You can get a protein rich deep conditioner from another brand, or you can do my modified rice water treatment once a month as a minimum, or once a month as a maximum. It’s about trial, error and experimentation to figure out what works best for your hair.

  3. Tilda Lynn Williams says:

    Just wanted to let you know that not all of their products are protein free. The Aloeba conditioner has hydrolyzed oat protein in the ingredient list

    1. Yes I know, thank you x

  4. Nina Bsing says:

    This was so informative! I just found out I have low porosity hair and have been looking into Jessiecurl too! Is there a step by step on how u use it?

  5. Thanks always for the great info.
    Do you just add the Rockin ringlets to dry hair? Do you wet the frizz piece first?

    1. Gabriella says:

      I usually apply RR to my hair when it’s wet, but if I’m just fixing a few wonky curls in between wash days, then I’ll apply it dry, or spray that one curl with water and then apply it. Just experiment and see what works for your hair. x

  6. I’m new to CGM. I live at a high altitude (super dry climate) and based on the water test I believe I have fine, low porosity hair, and I’m pretty sure I have overcompensated for my climate and over moisturized my hair, so I will be trying your modified rice water rinse. But any hair product tips for dry climates once my hair is balanced again? Would low glycerine products work better here too?

  7. Vera Lien says:

    I’ve been reading your blog and trusted your reviews. Therefore I bought Briogeo Don’t despair, repair. Then you updated that it contains wax. I’ve also bought two bottles of Jessicurl Spiralicious gel based on your review and now I found out that Jessicurl Spiralicious contains drying alcohol (polyquartenum-69). What’s your comment about that?

    1. Gabriella says:

      I’m not entirely sure about the tone of your comment, but I’ll answer it as best as I can. I shared my findings on Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! as soon as I discovered my mistake, I was very up front, open and honest about it and have updated every post where I mention it since. I have also stated on this blog that drying alcohols don’t bother me as much as silicones/waxes as my hair is always very moisturised. There are a few great posts about polyquat 69, but here’s what Jessicurl themselves have to say in response: “You will note on the ingredients label for our Spiralicious Styling Gel that it does contain a drying alcohol, ethanol, to be exact. Our bottles of Spiralicious contain about 7/10ths of one percent ethanol. Ethanol is a necessary component in Polyquaternium 69 which is one of the ingredients we use in that gel. The proportion of ethanol is so low in this product that it does not have a negative effect.” I hope that helps and answers your questions and concerns.

    Tried the code this evening for 20% off and it doesn’t seem to be working. Has it changed? Thanks a mill

    1. Gabriella says:

      HI Deirdre, so sorry. The discount code is no longer valid. Sorry again x

  9. Thank you so much for your content, Gabriella! It has helped me so much… I direct other newbies to your site all the time!!

    I did want to let you know that unfortunately this discount code doesn’t work anymore – or at least didn’t for me 🙁 I’m in the US!

    I look forward to reading more from you in the future!

    1. Gabriella says:

      Thank you so much Kearstie! Unfortunately the discount code has expired and is no longer valid. Sorry about that!

  10. The discount code is not working((

  11. Also been using Jessicurl for nearly a year and it’s fantastic.My favourite curly girl brand,curls always look amazing.

  12. Hmmm the code isn’t working for me, was it time-sensitive? Thanks!

  13. Melissa King says:

    Do you use all three of the styling products at the same time? What is the routine with them?

    1. Gabriella says:

      Not always, but if I want predictable, consistent, long-lasting, great results then yes. I apply very small amounts of each, first RR, then CC then Spiralicious Gel. Hope that helps x

  14. Momma Jan says:

    Oh man I hate I missed reading this before the giveaway closed but I’m still, so thankful for your detailed review!! I’ve been wanting to try their products for so long but didn’t know where to start. I now have a cart full! Thank you!

  15. Jasmine Sutton says:

    Hiya, I’m from the UK and just tried to get my hand on a few of the samples from JessiCurl website but the lowest price in shipping was $50! Very expensive shipping prices! Was wondering if you know of any other websites I could buy jessiCurls from??

    1. Gabriella says:

      Hi Jasmine, yes! You can buy Jessicurl from Naturalistic Products, I’ll leave a link here, but they don’t do sales or discount codes unfortunately. http://bit.ly/2qF0lw8

  16. Hi Gabriella,
    Loving the Jessicurl products but had a question on the Rockin Ringlets for you. I have very very soft, fine hair, and I am tempted to try the Rockin Ringlets, just was curious whether it would weigh my hair down and I would be better sticking with the Confident Curls? Opinion is welcomed before I buy yet another product! Many thanks, love the blog and often visit 🙂

    1. Gabriella says:

      Hi Tracey, Confident Coils is actually heavier than Rockin’ Ringlets. Gelebration Spray is a lighter version of Rockin’ Ringlets. So if you like Confident Coils and don’t find it too heavy, or only a little too heavy, Rockin’ Ringlets would be fine. If you find it really heavy, go for Gelebration instead. Hope that helps xoxo

  17. Great post very informative. I recently just finished some samples a friend gave me of Jessicurl and I have to say I loved them all!! I’m not certain of what collection would be suitable for my hair but I have 2c/3a thick curls and live in New Mexico. I’m certain all collections are fantastic so to me its a win, win!! Thank you for the chance at this amazing giveaway!!

  22. Rebecca Williams says:

    Hi Gabriella
    I’ve just entered the competition but I noticed a typo on the date on the IG post – it says it closes on 17th July? I hope you don’t mind me mentioning it but thought at least you can amend it early on… It jumped out at me as my late Dads Birthday is the 17th June and it’s him I inherited my curls from!

    1. Gabriella says:

      Yes, my apologies! The giveaway competition is only open for a week, and closes on Sunday 16th JUNE, winner announced on Instagram on June 17th! Hope that clears up any confusion.

      Sorry! It’s hyper linked at the bottom of the post where I say comment with what collection you’d like to win. The writing/hyper link is a different colour, a green/teal colour. x

      1. Thank you for the response, found it…off to enter now

  26. Great review. I have just started down the CG method path and trying to figure out what works best for my fine, easily-weighed down curls in humid Tennessee. I’m definitely interested in the Spiralicious gel and the Aloeba conditioner. I’m going to their site now to see about samples.

  27. Ivette Plasencia Navarro says:

    I came from tenerife, Spain , I love to try the deep aconditioner , my favorite jessicurl is the spiralicius gel.. Is amazing, I love it

    2. Stacy Brown says:

      I love their products too. I’ve never tried to refresh with Rocking Ringlets. Thanks for the tip.

      1. Gabriella says:

        Yes, it’s a genius hack! @spisha uses beautiful mess in the same way, and that’s where I got the idea. And one day I grabbed Jessicurl Rockin’ Ringlets to try doing the same thing and it worked at treat!
