A new month means a new beauty product.
As part of the H-E-B Beauty Blogger Program, each month I’m sent a new product to review. This month, the product I received is the Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy 7 Day Starter Kit. I received it a couple of weeks ago but have been using it for the past week and I’m already beginning to notice a difference in the way my hair feels!
The 7 Day Starter Kit comes with two shampoos (3 oz each) and one conditioner (3 oz). It is available in a range of six shampoos and five conditioners to meet different scalp and hair needs including Total Care for all hair types, Damage & Color Repair for damaged and colored hair, Volumizing Root Boost for hair in need of volume, Strong Lengths for weak hair prone to breakage, Moisturizing Dry Scalp for those who deal with dry scalp or dry hair and Complete Care for dandruff prone scalps and hair. The line is infused with Nutrium 10™ technology, a rich blend of vitamins and nutrients.
I’ve been using the kit for a little over a week and I still have a full bottle of shampoo, some in the other bottle of shampoo and half of the conditioner left. I’ve found when using the Clear product, a little goes a long way. My hair is thick and long so I was surprised I didn’t go through more of the shampoo. When I got the bottles out of the box, my first thought that there was no way it was going to last me long enough. But, it did with some to spare. It lathers well but I did have a little trouble knowing when I got all the shampoo out because it left my hair feeling softer right after using it.
I definitely recommend using the least amount of product you can to thoroughly clean your hair and scalp. I noticed that when I used too much product, it weighed down my hair and caused it to look oily rather than shiny. Also, because I already have oily hair, I did not use the conditioner near my scalp.
Overall I really like the Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy. Since I do occasionally have problems with my scalp, I like that I can use a product that doesn’t smell medicinal, but rather a product that has a nice, aromatic fragrance.
Here are some tips from Francesca Fusco for a well-nourished scalp (the foundation for strong, beautiful hair):
DIET: Your diet plays an important part in keeping your hair in good condition. I recommend drinking at least two liters of water daily to keep your skin hydrated. Remember, your scalp is skin! I also recommend eating foods that are known to be anti-inflammatory, like antioxidant rich fruits, including blueberries, and vegetables. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, have a beneficial effect on your skin and scalp.
STRESS: Stress is one of the leading causes of an unhealthy scalp and can result in hair loss. We know stress is unavoidable in all our lives, and I recommend finding outlets to relieve stress like exercise, yoga, meditation and music, or anything else that can help relax you. The best way to de-stress though, and possibly the easiest, is to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Everything seems to get refreshed after a long night of rest!
WATER TEMPERATURE: When washing your hair, alternate the use of hot and cold water on your scalp. This will help to stimulate the circulation and decrease dead cells from building up. Excessive heat on the scalp and hair can irritate and dry out both. This applies to all heating devices including blow dryers, curling irons, flat irons, diffusers and any other heated tools. Try to give your hair a rest every few days and wear it naturally – resist the urge to blow dry!
AIR TEMPERATURE: Like water temperature, the air temperature can wreak havoc on your scalp and hair, especially cold weather. To offset this, I recommend investing in an air humidifier to replenish the humidity to your hair and scalp. You can keep it running through the day or night and even add essential oils like lavender to the water. It’ll be great for your skin too!
HAIR CARE REGIMEN: Use a nourishing shampoo and conditioner, like those in the CLEAR SCALP & HAIR THERAPY™ line. The collection is infused with Nutrium 10™, a rich blend of vitamins and nutrients like vitamins B5, C & E. CLEAR SCALP & HAIR THERAPY™ deeply nourishes the scalp where it matters most, creating the right foundation for strong hair from root to tip. It is also clinically proven to help restore the scalp’s natural moisture balance when using the shampoo and conditioner system. Try to massage your scalp for one full minute when shampooing and conditioning. Never use your fingernails to scratch at the scalp. Following this regimen will give you the strong, beautiful hair you’ve always wanted.
