Miss Jessie's Transitioner's Magic from Kinky Moriri

Hello lovelies,

Mpho added some extra touches, this is the card that
came with the product more on Instagram
I am always looking for new opportunities to give my blog some more views and to bring you information. I contacted Kinky Moriri to be one of the bloggers who will be doing product reviews for them, they gave me the chance and now here we are. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank them for trusting me with this.  **I did not buy this product it was sent to me by Kinky Moriri


Let’s cut to the chase, shall we? I have a lot of good things to say about Miss Jessie’s Transitioner’s Magic. What is it? That answer will surely depend on what you want to use it as, but the main aim of the product is for people who are transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair. This should help soften the new growth to make it easier to maintain the different textures. You can also use it as a leave-in conditioner and a styling cream, it also states that you can use it for a wash-n-go (I am yet to try this). The product boasts of a lot of amazing oils and other nutrient dense ingredients like spirulina and pumpkin seed extract (side eye), maybe this should be a hair supplement lol.

Product description: It is a creamy substance that is cream in colour. A little bit runny in consistency so be careful not spill or let it slip off your finger (it happened to me). It smells like custard, I almost licked it off my hands, I am lying. It comes in a tube container. It is not a local product, "made in the USA”, best thing is that no animals were harmed during the manufacturing process so they have a “no animal testing” logo on it. Another best thing is that it consists of certified organic ingredients *my inner naturalista dances for this*.



Product Use: I used this mainly as a leave-in for both Mpho and I. Our hair loves it. I have used it on both dry and wet hair. I prefer using it on dry hair though, it serves as a moisturiser better that way on both our hairs. When my hair was wet it would have a wash-n-go effect on it which I liked but not so crazy about, the hair curls quite tightly and dries very quickly before I can detangle. I witnessed curls in my hair for the first time without a conditioner. I first thought that this would be more suitable for looser textures(3c,4a) but it worked great on my texture, I definitely understand how it could work for people who are transitioning because it does really moisturise the hair and helps a lot with detangling.
 
Pros: The thing I liked the most about this product was how moisturising it is. I only apply it twice a week and my hair has been maintaining the moisture without fail. That is a winner on its own. It has a lot of slip, great for detangling on wet or dry hair. And you don’t have to use a lot of it, a little goes a long way. Plus it smells amazing. It will leave your hair feeling soft for days, especially after a blow dry.

Cons: It is very expensive! You are going to have to be on a free budget for this one, but it makes up for it because you won’t use too much of it. It feels very heavy for me, so if your hair likes heavy products then this is for you. You would not think that since it is light in consistency. My daughter’s hair loves heavy products so this would be a pro for her. It also feels slimy in my hands, I am guessing that is what provides the slip, but I always have to wipe or rinse my hands to remove it so that I can be able to use tools to continue styling. I know that this looks like a very long paragraph but the pros outweigh the cons by a quarter mile lol. It causes hair to shrink quite fast though and the packaging says and I quote “prevent curl shrinkage”, this did not happen.

Conclusion: This product is available at Kinky Moriri, they are a South African online store and they have other products from the Miss Jessie’s line, it retails for R455 *squirm*. I am hoping to be using it for the next 2 months while I am saving to buy it again. I know it looks like I have a lot of cons but anything that helps my hair retain moisture is a win to me especially during this drought in Cape Town. I definitely recommend this product to those who can afford it . If you have tried it or any other products from Miss Jessie’s, please comment down below and let us know what your experience has been like. Be on the lookout for a video review.

Until next post, God bless…
