Review: CLEAR Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy Total Care Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner
A friend had shared that CLEAR was offering free samples of their shampoo and conditioner on their Facebook page. I'm always down to try a new product so I thought sure why not. Several weeks pass and I start to see other bloggers posting and the Heidi Klum commercials so my patience quickly became tested. I finally received my sample and was excited to try.
Apparently there's a whole collection of shampoos ranging from Damage & Color Repair to Strong Lengths. I received the Total Care Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner which gently cleanses and nourishes scalp and hair. It is formulated with Nutrium 10 which has been clinically proven to restore scalp's natural moisture balance. It says it makes your hair stronge, more beautiful in 7 days. However, one small sample won't give me more than one wash so I can't accurately assess this statement. They give you a $1 coupon to encourage you to purchase a full size bottle which for the set is about $10.
To my surprise, it was pink rather than clear. There wasn't much of a smell to it, kind of like VO5. The shampoo quickly lathered into a foam onto my hair because it contains sulfate. However, sulfate has been shown to dry and damage hair so I'm not sure why this type of product would contain it. I wasn't very impressed with the conditioner either.
Would I buy it? No. I'm sticking to my Cristophe shampoo and conditioner for the rest of the summer.
