Calista Tools Embellish Texturizing Definer with ProElement
I have super straight, fine hair and wear it very short. This is the best product I have found. No need to blow dry or curl. Only a small amount is needed and the look you get is like salon terrific. I can't believe I waited so long to try this product.
Not good for heavy or long hair
I have very heavy just past the shoulder hair. It used to be super thick (like hair that women give their right arm for)... but after a baby and hitting 30, it's thinned out a little. Still heavy. At first, I thought I'd used too much, so on my second try, I used less. Third try, less, Fourth try.... barely any. Each time it left my hair greasy and flat. My mother, on the other hand, has super short thin hair. I used it on her and it was amazing. I didn't return because it lifts her crown in the perfect place and just works wonders. But I would definitely NOT recommend if you have heavy/ not thin hair.
Amazing! Perfect for Thin, Fine Hair!
I'm purchasing my 3rd container of this product. I have short, thin, fine hair and used dozens of products before finding this. It lasts me for about 3 months with bi-weekly use. If you use it as directed, it works perfectly. You must put a small amount into your hands, rub them together until the product is clear, then clap your hands together 4 or 5 times, THEN run your hands through your hair. It works for me EVERY single time. I highly recommend it. I get compliments often. It gives my fine, thin hair body and lift with no other products needed except for a touch of hair spray.
I too have very short and thin hair. I have been using it for over a year and love it. More expensive products in the salon have not done the job for me. "Different strokes for different folks" I guess. A little goes a long way. I purchase another one today. One bottle lasted me 6 months.
Works ok - but hard to dispense!
The product seems to work fairly well, but I've used other products that do about the same but cost a lot less. Also, it is hard to dispense the product, and control how much you dispense. I'm afraid it is going to be even more difficult when I reach the bottom. Probably should have returned, but didn't.
great control with no stickiness
I have short fine hair and a cowlick. The love this product. It lets me get a cool "pieces" style and move hair to cover my cowlick. I buy lots of products that are just so-so. This actually works really well.
I have used this a couple of times since I bought, I am not really a hair person, the product works if you take the time to practice how to use it. It does have a funny smell to it though...
Really a bad product
This product is a mess. That is about all I can say about it. I should have sent back, but didn't. Don't waste your money.
its Ok ...like the fragrance
It took 15 days to receive it ...guess I'm used to amazon's quick delivery
The product was very small for $31, but I liked the fragrance
I have fine, thin hair and it didn't
work very well for me...
I won't reorder and don't recommend the product for baby fine hair.
As background, I have straight, short Asian hair. Used it for 3 weeks to give it a fair try. I did not feel this product was any different than most texturizing products on the market. At this price with added shipping not worth it.
How to Make Good Hair Bad
I've got "good" hair, but always hope for great hair for a special occasion.
Valentine's day: I forced open the container (not obvious how to open this product), read the instructions and applied.....I took a nearly great hair day and made it a disaster!
(1) It went from shiny to dull.
(2) It went from smooth and flowing to gluey and stiff.
(3) It went from smelling like my lovely shampoo and conditioner to an awful "old lady" talc-like odor.
If I can find the time, I'm going back into the shower and starting over again without this product!
As soon as I dig out from the coming blizzard, I'm certainly sending this back.
I was hesitant to try this product after reading some of the reviews but absolutely love it.
Please continue to carry this product! It gave my hair the body it needed!
