CurlTalk

poll and question for jessicurl

I know that I as well as other curlies love your product line. But one problem I have is that while it gives me fantastic curls, there just isn't enough hold and so I am forced to add one more product for hold. Have you considered or are you trying to make another product that gives a bit of hold? I'll start a poll to see how much interest there would be in a product like that...

    Please, Jessi. That would be awesome! I, too, have great shine and ringlets with RR, but I need more hold against "fuzzing up". Having to combine with my regular gel defeats the purpose of streamlining my product stash. If you need a 3-b guinea pig, I'm your girl! Great idea, aya9877.

    I love RR but I sometimes have to add other gels for hold.

    Me too!!! I need more hold! I have not found a gel that gives it great hold and that is compatable! That would be soooooo awesome!

    i can never get an application of RR right but if it was in gel form that would be awesome!

    I would definately be interested. For me, it would be best if it's mostly a gel, with the great characteristics of RR.
    Right now I add a few drops to each nickel size amount of L'Oreal AntiFrizz Gel, or Ouidad Tress F/X gel.
    There are so many of us who like RR, but need gel for control. Personally, I have to use A LOT of gel in my hair (saturate it), so a nice medium hold RR-gel would be awesome!!!

    for those that are interested, I emailed jess and this was her response.

    Let's hope she finds a supplier that will be willing to accomodate her without charging her an arm and a leg.

    I think that if she was able to get her products into more salons around the country, Jessicurl wouldn't be a small buisness anymore!!! Her conditioners are so great.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that she finds a good supplier....

    I think I'm the only one who would not like to see it with more hold. I've used products with more hold and it just 'disrupted' my curl pattern, stiff/crunch/wirey, very unnatural looking. RR reveals my hair's natural beaty, I've never had so many compliments. I hope she never changes the RR. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

    i don't think we're saying we want to change RR...just something in addition to it with the same qualities just with more hold :)

    Absolutely what cris said. I wouldn't dare want her to change the RR as so many curlies love it just the way that it is.

    I agree too! I just want a gel-like product in addition to the RR, not instead of it!

    It would be interesting to try and I also hope she can find a supplier who will give her those ingredients. Still loving the products and actually trying to get some NYC stores to stock it. I also will be giving away samples at my curl gathering in March (the 7th), don't forget about that and I will post again closer to the date.

    I would definately be interested in a gel....good luck with your search Jessicurl.

    As for mixing with a gel....I used to have really good luck mixing RR with Aura Cacia....but now that's its discontinued I'll have to find a new combo. When I get paid again I'm definately going to buy some more RR. I was going to give up on it, but the day I used my last little bit, I mixed it with the Aura Cacia and got soooo many compliments on how curly my hair was. Maybe I'll try mixing it with my new Graham Webb Curl Defining Gel.
    I think that I deceive genius.:happy10:

    I just wanted you to realize the demand is definately there :wink: And I hope this will encourage you to continue experimenting if you do find a supplier willing to sell in smaller quantities.

    Definately keep us posted!

    I'd rather have a crunch-free cream.

    I miss my Physique Curl Cream and can't find it anywhere around here! I've been using the Pantene cream, but it leaves a little crunch, and so does the PM Cream. I would love a cream I can use and have no crunch without having to touch my hair!

    I even get crunch from RR, and tons of hold. I guess it reacts differently with different hair.


    On a sidenote: I finally got my mom to use [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Hair-Cleansing-Cream-p-103.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-hair-cleansing-cream]Jessicurl cleansing cream[/buylink] instead of shampoo, and now I'm trying to get her to throw away the curling iron! She told me yesterday that she'd tried the Jessicurl and it seemed to work. My response was "I know. I could tell because your hair wasn't frizzy looking." She didn't use ANY styling products. Just switching from shampoo made that big a difference that day.
