Every strand of hair has a story

The health of a strand of hair is determined by its scalp and can reveal a person’s diet. So be sure to keep it healthy by maintaining a well-balanced diet that includes enough vegetables, fresh fruit, and protein.

Excess coffee intake is linked to dry hair

No matter how crazy your morning is likely to be, too much caffeine can dry out the scalp and hair. Try to replace your morning coffee with herbal teas and water for a healthy scalp and hair.

Keep your scalp clean

The first and most important step in scalp care is to keep your scalp clean by washing it regularly. Washing not only cleans your scalp but also reduces the clogging of pores. You should use a nourishing shampoo to wash your hair every day – like Clear with Nutrium 10 that activates your scalp’s natural protection layer.

Scalp is skin too

Your scalp is the weakest section of your skin so make sure you protect your scalp from harsh weather and chemicals like chlorine that irritate both your hair and your scalp. Use Clear Complete Care with a blend of ten nutrients that provides intense hydration for a healthy scalp and beautiful hair from root to tip.

What's your scalp type?

Much like skin, the scalp too can be broadly divided into three types — normal, oily and dry. To take care of your scalp, you need to determine what your scalp type is and what your scalp concerns are.

Your scalp can get sensitive too

When too much moisture escapes from your scalp, your pores are exposed, and this provides an opening for harmful substances to get into your scalp. This can cause irritation and can lead to itching, burning, redness, dandruff or tightness. Ensure your scalp is well hydrated with Clear Intense Hydration with Cactus Extract that replenishes dry scalp with essential hydration.

Too much styling can suffocate your hair

Leave on and other styling products can clog and irritate your scalp, restricting nutrients to your hair. Use CLEAR Cleanse and Purify, which deeply cleanses and purifies to leave your scalp and hair refreshed.

Hair should be protected from hot sun

Excessive heat dries up the scalp and damages hair so make sure you protect it. You can wear a hat or use an umbrella or hat to protect your scalp by blocking the damaging rays from the sun.

Pollutants are attracted to scalp and hair

Air pollution is likely to cause a dry, itchy scalp and unhealthy hair. Use Clear to wash away pollutants that have collected on your hair and scalp throughout the day.

Rain can stretch hair up to 30%

Hair that comes from an unhealthy scalp is more susceptible to damage and breakage when wet. Use CLEAR Complete Care with a blend of ten nutrients that provides intense hydration for a healthy scalp and luscious locks.
