Why is it Called “Clear Shampoo”?

Clear shampoo isn’t really all that clear. Learn the reason behind the name and what it does for your hair.

I was intrigued–just like any other woman–when I saw the countless commercials for Clear shampoo shown in the United States. It already has a cult following around the world. I wondered to myself, “Is it sulfate-free?” No. Actually, it has sodium laurel sulfates. That’s a major disappointment for some of us girls who love to co-wash! Some other people may wonder, “Is the shampoo itself clear?” Well, not really. It’s more of a foggy consistency.

So, what is Clear and why is it called that? Most clear shampoos remove all the dirt and residue leftover from styling products. This shampoo doesn’t really do that. Instead, it nourishes your scalp. 99% of your hair’s natural strength and beauty comes from the scalp. A healthy scalp leads to healthy hair. Clear created a line to feed your scalp with nutrients such as Nutrium 10.

Any girl who wants to revamp her hair can try this shampoo. Their line includes total care, damage and color repair, volumizing boost, strong lengths, moisturizing dry scalp, complete care, and ultra shea. I would give the ultra shea or moisturizing dry scalp a try, if it was sulfate-free. That’s a huge con for me.

I’m still unsure on why this line is called Clear. Still, it may give you the hair you’ve been desperately wanting. I will have to pass on this line since co-washing has made a dramatic difference in the way my hair looks and feels. Co-washing is not recommended for every hair type though. Just like with co-washing, I wouldn’t recommend the Clear line for every hair type. Hair products are pretty much trial and error. You have to keep trying until you find one that’s right for you.
