Our readers took the Clear 7 Day Challenge - and here's what they thought!

Last month we asked 10 Beauty Crazed readers to take the Clear 7 Day Challenge and sent them a bottle of the shampoo and conditioner to see if it would do what it promised to which was to leave hair noticeably stronger in just 7 days - out of the 10 that promised to give us their opinion, 7 of them actually did and here's what they have to say:

Jessica - age ? -  hair type ? - When I first got it; I immediately tried its scent for size, lol - don't know why but I like a nice scent when washing my hair and body.
Not too powerful or heavy and Clear met those expectations. I liked the creamy texture of the shampoo and conditioner. After lathering and massaging my scalp, I rinsed - squeezed out as much water as I could and applied the conditioner. Left on while I proceeded with my body. After, I rinsed well, possibly 3 minutes later. It did feel clean. I combed out my hair and let them dry naturally since I wanted to see the product in its full expansion. Well, my hair was a little dry. My scalp felt itchy. So, it could be the weather here, mid-season flare-ups or end of season flare-ups because of dry heat in homes during the winter and spring. I waited a few days, and, repeated the procedure two more times during the week. My hair did not get worse, only my scalp was itchy. Hair shaft had that brittle looking side to it. My hair is thin. Not sure, if I could use it again right now. Will have to wait till summer or late spring to really evaluate Clear.

Lisa - 48 - fine hair - I tried the Clear set several times and my hair became drier and drier after each shampoo - on its own, I did not apply a treatment or whatever. Just the shampoo and conditioner gave me almost the same results as many other shampoo. I couldn't believe that I had to fall in the smallest percentage who will claim that it did nothing for them. 

Jamie - 36 - fine, curly coloured hair - I was impressed from the first day trying clear scalp and hair therapy it has a great scent and a creamy texture. At the time I started using clear scalp and hair therapy my scalp was very itchy so it was great to put it to the test. During the week of trying this product my hair was more manageable with less flyaways, also day by day my scalp was less itchy. Despite the rich texture of this product it doesnt weigh my fine hair down, which is a real bonus as usually with a moisturizing shampoo my hair is weighed down and lifeless. Now thanks to Clear scalp and hair therapy i have healthier and more manageable hair and a new favourite shampoo and conditioner. 

Tasha - 31 - thick and wavy, dry to normal hair - I noticed a difference in my scalp the first day I used the products. I have very wavy and frizzy hair and this has really helped to tame it. No, it won't make your hair so perfect that you don't need to use any additional hair styling products, but it doesn't claim to do that. My hair feels a whole lot silkier (NOT oily) and the smell? One word... heavenly!

I have used a few different "expensive shampoos/conditioners" in the past. And honestly there is nothing that those products will do that this shampoo/conditioner won't do. If anything these products works just as good, if not better. The bottles are a fairly decent size, easy to open and you don't need to use a ton of product to get the job done! Which means it will last longer! Yay!

The consistency of Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy shampoo is fairly thick and more concentrated than what I am used to. I only needed to use half the amount (approximately half of a tablespoon) I would normally use because it lathers up quite a bit more than your typical shampoo. It really does a thorough cleaning job of the scalp without stripping the hair of moisture as it's a moisturizing shampoo.

The conditioner left my hair feeling silky smooth and weightless, just like that of when you get your hair done at the salon. My hair is more manageable, shiny, full of life and smells delicious even the next day. The light scent lingers. My scalp feels great. 

Audrey - age 23 - thick, coarse, wavy/curly, dry and frizzy hair - I don't usually have any issues with my scalp except the occasional oiliness if I don't wash it for more than two days. So for me, the hardest thing to control is the frizz and the dryness. I'm always on the lookout for a great shampoo and conditioner that will put some moisture into my hair so it's soft and manageable. My first impression of the Clear shampoo was that it was thick and creamy but it still had a nice consistency. It was easy to lather and wash my hair thoroughly. It washed clean and left my hair feeling smooth. The conditioner was just as thick and creamy and also left my hair smooth after rinsing. Unfortunately, after I got out of the shower, my hair didn't feel any different or better. I also didn't care for the smell of the products much. I will continue to use the products until they are done but I don't think I'll be inclined to buy it unless it was on sale. 

Karin - 48 - long thin hair with brittle ends - I tried Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy-Damage & Color Repair and I found it to be good. I really liked the fragrance, soft and not overpowering. I have thin hair and I often feel a residue left in my hair after washing, but I didn't feel any residue at all when I used Clear. I also suffer from brittle ends. I straighten my hair 3-4 times per week and I found that the longer I used Clear, the less brittle it became. I would have to say I really liked Clear. My only worry of course is that after prolonged use it wont continue to the same job. I have often found that after prolonged use some products dont measure up to how they at first were. But I do like Clear and I will continue to purchase, even my daughter in-law wants to try the 7 day challenge.
Meg - 24 - fine, colour treated hair - I loved the smell I however feel the shampoo did not lather as much as I’d like, I love the after smell and how the product lingers in my hair ; the conditioner was not to thick and made my hair super silky and a little went along way 
Day 2: February 26th 2013: Second use; Was super excited to use this again, the smell is the greatest part so far, I noticed my hair was not as greasy (normally overnight my hair is greasy as I have thin oily hair, the main reason I wash daily) typical though, I am not seeing a difference in strength it is only the second day. 
Day 3: February 27th 2013: When I used this today I wasn’t so impressed after the conditioner I let my hair air dry and it seemed really coarse. I do have bleach in my hair but it just seemed blah today! Perhaps just a build up of product, -- time for a deep condition. 
Day 4: February 28th 2013: Did I mention the smell, I have been tracking the progress in my note pad on my device and everyone loves the smell including me! Today I also let my hair air dry and I used the flat iron I do still tend to see coarse-ness in my hair. I noticed this so suddenly I’m wondering if I just never noticed it as much before, my hair lacks shine – hmmm. 
Day 5: March 1st 2013: I really do not like this shampoo and conditioner at all at this point, it’s not for me – my hair is just not working well with it. The coarse feeling and lack of shine is really disappointing – But as promised 7 days! 
Day 6 and 7 – March 2nd and 3rd 2013: This product did nothing for my hair. The reason I did not like is the feeling of my hair, it felt clean but it didn’t look healthy. It didn’t repair my hair or even make it look shiny. I also noticed my hair beginning to fall out a lot more. I would absolutely not purchase this product as it was just not the right combination with my hair.
Total rating: 2/10 - the smell was just about the only positive thing I can say; besides it did the job of a basic clean. I did not like anything about how it made my hair feel or look and to top it off it made my hair fall out more with brushing and cleaning than normal. I think I will stick with my Lush BIG shampoo!
