What is it: A lightweight styling paste used to add texture and definition to every strand of hair. Separate and define hair without stickiness or buildup. Hair is pliable and easy to shape, curl, or twist into dramatic new looks. This is an essential styling product, hair shaper, and texturizer for short, sassy styles and sexy, long looks.

Who is it for: Anyone who wants to change their look without changing their haircut. It creates multiple styles, giving you the ability to change your look in seconds!

Why is it different: You won't believe your eyes! The innovative ingredient, ProElement, fosters deep penetration of nutrients into the hair. This product contains specific minerals and vitamins to give you healthier-looking hair with lots of flexibility and style.

How do I use it: Remove the safety seal tab located just below the pump button. Gently push the center, on the bottom inside of the product, to release any air preventing the product from dispensing. A little goes a very long way. Put a pea-sized amount into your hands and rub your hands together. Clap your hands together until you begin to see formed fibers connecting hand to hand. The more fibrous you make it, the lighter the product becomes. For fine hair and those looking for a light amount of styling product, clap your hands repeatedly before applying it to your hair. If your hair is heavy in weight and tends to lay flat, clap your hands only a few times, leaving the product more concentrated. Apply to dry hair, run through the root area for lift and fullness, and apply to the ends for texture and definition.

Hairstylist tip: Defining products don't necessarily have hold to them--they are for creating new looks. Follow with hair spray to give your new look long-lasting hold.

Reviews & Community QA

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1535 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love the added body This is working great for me. I have short hair that I am always back-combing to get it to lift and to get more body. This product adds body along with styling. In the morning when I comb my hair it actually feels thicker and fuller without adding more product. Less is more. I didn't give it 5 stars because I'm not too happy with the dispenser. I've only used it twice so I hope it dispenses better. 08-23-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by FINALLY =) This is the hair product that I have been searching for many, many years!!" I have thick course hair that just wants to lay down flat on top......this product does what it says it will do making my hair full of volume & easy to style.......thanks so much =) 08-17-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by stringy and sticky This product is a joke! Clapping produces sticky, flying threads all over clothes, bathroom and everywhere you are clapping. 08-13-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by It Flattens My Hair It doesn't work as described,followed instructions awful product Waste of money 08-10-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why Did I Wait?! My goodness this product is wonderful! I am 62 with thinning short hair and have searched for a product to hold the lift I create with my round brush. All past products have held for a few mins but after spraying my fine hair yields to gravity and falls. I have watched this on QVC for years but couldn't bring myself to spend the money, something I really regret now I have used it. I knew it was different as soon as I began to run it thru the root area of my hair. It makes my hair appear thicker, a much appreciated feature. I am happy in Tennessee! 07-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Perfect Texturizer I used Paul Mitchell's Wax Works for years, and even though I had started to think it was too heavy, and the daily buildup was too hard to eliminate, leaving my hair feeling greasy, I still hadn't found anything else that gave my hair that piecey texture I wanted. I saw a presentation for the Calista, and my mom happened to have some, so I tried it. DON'T LISTEN TO THE OTHER, NEGATIVE REVIEWS! As long as you do as the presentation says, and use only a pea-size amount, and clap your hands together to get the strings, you can have perfect texturized hair. My short, layered bob is full of volume, never looks greasy, and feels cleaner after washing than it has in years. I love this product! 06-27-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best product of its kind At first I didn't like this product. Once I started applying the product from my finger tips (rather than from the palms of my hands) and directly to the roots of my hair, the results were awesome. My hair is very baby fine, and my hair stays bouncy, does not get weighed down. I will definitely reorder. It adds texture, body, and style. Reminder: When the product arrives and you have removed the tab so that you can activate the pump, you also have to push up on the bottom of the container before the first use so the creme will dispense. 06-25-16
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible It takes you FOREVER to get this product to come out, every time you use it. Worst product ever!!!! 06-14-16
