Well, there's a lot more to report about this line. Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy actually has a main line and then two more lines extension - one for men, and another, called Ultra Shea. Ultra Shea was developed to care for the scalp AND hair care needs of women with both relaxed and natural (and very curly hair).
Celebrity hairstylist (and a true pleasure to speak to!), Oscar James, is one of the hairstylists tapped by the Clear brand to represent the line.
James has tons of experience to draw upon since he had a track record of working in the industry for over 15 years. In that time, he has amassed a client list of supermodels and celebrities such as Iman, Vanessa Williams, Tyra Banks, Halle Berry, Beyonce and more. His work can be seen on many magazine covers and editorial pages. The entire line, including the Ultra Shea, is based around the idea that 99 percent of hair health comes from the scalp. He worked with the Clear team to create a line of products using this as a basis for hair that was naturally drier, chemically processed and have drier scalp symptoms.
While the main range’s five different shampoo and conditioner duos target different scalp concerns, including color damage, daily maintenance, volume, weakness, and dryness, the Ultra Shea line has 4 key products which address scalp health, dryness, hair breakage, shine, all while avoiding heavy buildup.
I tested some of the products from the line for which Oscar also showed all of us the final results with on a hair model at the event.
I started with the Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy Cleanse & Nourish Shampoo, Ultra Shea The product was lightweight, silky in feel, freshly scented and cleansed well, all while actually making my scalp also more hydrated (It's formulated with Nutrium 10™ Moisture Lock system, a rich blend of shea butter and natural oils, including vitamin E, sunflower, coconut, almond, soybean, argan, and palm).
The shampoo made my hair soft and smooth and stayed feeling that way after rinsing. Next up was the Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy Smooth & Nourish Conditioner, Ultra Shea which also was creamy, thick and had a whipped like texture. It also had a very fresh, light scent and I could also feel the difference not only in the softness of my hair, but also my scalp after rinsing. The conditioner left no sticky, greasy residue or a heavy feel on my hair.
The third product is the Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy Nourishing Scalp & Hair Oil, Ultra Shea which can be used in a variety of ways - it can be massaged into the scalp for additional hydration and hair shine which is perfect for braided/natural/kinky hair types, used just on the ends along with a heat styling which is great for curly or relaxed hair, or just used a final shine after blowing or letting air dry.
What I loved about the oil was how moisturizing it was, but not greasy in the least, since it absorbed into my hair instantly. It didn't feel heavy or weigh the hair down, and also had that nice scent.
This is a great line that fills a niche in the drugstore ethnic hair care needs and should be a staple for those of you with relaxed, natural or very curly hair that tends to be dry/prone to breakage with a dry scalp. And all at a great price of around $5.99 each! - RLB
