The idea is that if you nourish the scalp and roots, your hair will grow in stronger and healthier, and in turn, will be better equipped to handle all the stress you throw at it. This makes total sense to me, as it's more of a solution to the problem, rather than a quick fix. But I'm also an impatient girl, and don't want to wait for my roots to grow out to the ends, so I was hoping that Clear made the rest of my hair look healthy and shiny in the process (hint- it does!).
The secret behind Clear is Nutrium 10, which is a blend of 10 vitamins and nutrients that feed your scalp and give you stronger, more beautiful hair in 7 days.
The line consists of shampoos and conditioners for different hair types, including Damage and Color Repair, Volumizing Root Boost, Strong Lengths, Total Care (for all hair types), Moisturizing Dry Scalp, and Complete Care (for dandruff prone hair/scalp). There is also a men's line that focuses on anti-dandruff. The retail price ranges between $4.99-$5.99, and the bottles are 12.9 fl. oz. (shampoo) and 12.7 fl. oz. (conditioner), available at drugstores.
Heidi Klum is the spokesmodel for Clear and was recently at a launch at Rite Aid in L.A.
“I love the way Clear Scalp & HairBeauty Therapy makes my hair look and feel,” Heidi said. “It’s a revolutionary new approach in caring for your hair – feed the scalp – it makes sense to me.”
The people at Clear were nice enough to send me samples of the Total Care shampoo and conditioner, which is a formula for all hair types.
Here are some bottle shots:
I started using Clear about 2 weeks ago, and so far I love it! The shampoo is very thick, which I was worried would weigh down my fine hair, but it didn't at all. In fact, it lathers without much effort at all and you only need a little bit. It feels very moisturizing and doesn't strip the hair. The conditioner is creamy but not heavy and also doesn't weigh the hair down. After the first day, my hair was silky and easy to manage with less frizz, but nothing too extraordinary. But after using it for two weeks, I've noticed that my hair continues to improve and look better. I did notice that the conditioner contains Lactic Acid, which can create bonds between the keratin in your hair and basically fill the holes, so to speak. So while Clear is nourishing my scalp, it's also helping to repair some of the damage.
Overall, I think that Clear is something I will continue to use for the long term to get my hair back into good condition, and at $6, it's way cheaper than salon brands.
