Below is another day's fresh application of the Curls and Swirls...
On to our Jelly Cream Review and Thoughts...
A soft hold moisturizing gel lotion that defines and conditions curls, while nourishing the scalp and hair. Smooth and define each curl with natural conditioners. Absolutely no plastics! Only silky and bouncy curls...naturally! Jelly Cream has twice as much hold as the Down & Out creams.
It can be used along with the other leave-in products for extra control.
This product is reccommended for all hair types!
Apply to clean, damp, detangled hair in small sections and smooth through completely. Style with fingers, not a comb, to reduce poof.

Upon first impression, by reading the bottle i interpreted this Jelly Cream as being a hair gel type product. So i began using it in combination with the Curls and Swirls as the bottle suggested that this be used with other leave in conditioner/moisturizer product for extra hold and manageability. I fell in love with the fragrance immediately! It really hit home with me as i am a lover of butter cream and this reminded me of some very famous home made butter cream, just nearly edible in nature!!! Beyond this factor i was really intrigued by the texture as i could see through the bottle that it wasn't gel like nor was it like a hair milk which can be two extremes..
When i "squirted" some into my hand i noticed it came out with a thickness to it and as it sat in my hand it began to slightly liquify. I liked the texture of this Jelly Cream and was glad/surprised that it wasn't sticky like the average gel nor was it exactly like a lotion. The Jelly Cream has a texture of its own. At first i decided to use the JC after i applied the Curls and Swirls since this was more so the hold type of finishing product according to the label. The first set of pics are right after i applied the Curls and Swirls followed by the Jelly Cream, i used two full pumps to fully cover her hair.
I like the glide and ease of the Jelly Cream, the texture and weight of it is ideal for my daughters hair density and over all thickness. Its not too thick and its not too thin. It has obvious form when i squirt the JC into my palm it had a structure hold, as what frosting looks like as its squeezed out of the tube.
Here are a few pics of the Jelly Cream by its lonesome after i spritzed her hair with some distilled water. Look at the shrinkage in this picture below, it appeared that her curls really shrunk up but then after i finger combed it in a little more her curls elongated themselves a bit more. Her curls are clearly large and wavy thru the mid top and at the bottom they are "S" shaped and the size of a sharpie marker give or take. Her roots seem to grow straight out and downwards. Indicating that she has a variety of patterns in her hair which all require slightly different bits of love. That's why most of the time we have more than 1 signature product.
We really like this product over all and i have not seen or experienced any less positives as of yet. I have learned that following the directions to a T on the Curls and Swirls is a great idea because you can create major poofage if you stray from the directions on the jar :)
I must send a HUGE Thank You and *Hug* to Stacey for giving us this opportunity to review these two products and present our results and thoughts on how the Blended Cutie products worked for us. It was our pleasure reviewing and adding these to her hair regime <3
