Hello everyone!  So Influenster was kind enough to send me a Summer Beauty Voxbox and in it contained many fabulous deluxe and full sized samples that I was to test and review.  In the box, I received 6 products.  One of which was Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner.  I was super excited to try this line because Heidi Klum supposedly loves it so I was really trusting her on this one.  Unfortunately, these products got a thumbs down from me and here's why:

What Clear promises:
The search for strong, beautiful hair is finally over. Introducing CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™, a new line of shampoos and conditioners that will change the way women care for their hair. 99% percent of hair’s natural strength and beauty comes from the scalp. For years women have been treating the ends of their hair, rather than the source — the scalp. One small change like feeding scalp* can make a big difference. FEED SCALP* with new CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™.

NEW CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ is available in a range of six shampoos and five conditioners to meet different scalp and hair needs. The line is infused with Nutrum 10TM technology, a rich blend of vitamins and nutrients. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ nourishes the scalp, and creates the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair from root to tip. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ gives women stronger, more beautiful hair in just 7 days. For more information, please visit our site.

Where to buy:
CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ products are available at mass retailers, select drugstores and supermarkets nationwide.
Suggested retail price: $4.99 – $5.99

**Disclaimer: Less breakage upon combing vs. non conditioning shampoo

To my dismay, this product stripped my scalp and hair of its natural oils and left it a bit dry.  Clear recommends that you use it for 7 days, but I can't continuing "feeding my scalp" with these products.  I was really hoping to get Heidi Klum's voluminous locks with these products :(  But instead, I got a dry and frizzy mess.  The shampoo left my hair too squeaky clean and the conditioner was not hydrating my scalp or my hair strands properly.

Quick Take: Appeared promising...Heidi Klum supposedly likes it so how bad could it be?  It has SLS but not all SLS shampoos are terrible.

Usage Tips: Like with any shampoo, a little goes a long way.  Too much product/lather will dry out your scalp and hair.

The Verdict: Not my favorite shampoo & conditioner duo.  It has a great salon fresh smell but other than that, I felt that these products were a bit lacking.  It contains SLS which a harsh surfactant and is terrible for your hair.  I will not be purchasing these items in full size because it does not work for my hair type.
