Bid relentless dandruff and awful thinning hair goodbye and usher in Christmas with voluminous and luscious locks!


And how do you achieve this you ask?

With Unilever’s new breakthrough technology in scalp care – Nutrium 10, which is the key ingredient of its CLEAR series.

Dandruff (whether minimal or chronic) and hair loss can cause a lack of confidence and eventually leads to embarrassment and a low self-esteem.

I know that because I usually suffer from a flaky and itchy scalp whenever I return from overseas, especially colder countries. Worried that someone will notice this, I’ll avoid dark colored clothing and even avoid sitting on dark colored chairs until the condition is cured.

So the arrival of the new CLEAR with Nutrium 10 was absolutely timely!

Unlike other anti- dandruff shampoos that are wash-away solutions, the CLEAR with Nutrium 10 treats the root cause. It not only infuses the scalp with nutrients three layers deep but also helps to rebalance cell proliferation processes to restore the scalp to its healthy condition.

Alright, enough of the blabbering and here is my take on the products.

I was given the following products by The Sample Store.

CLEARWomen Ice Cool Menthol


$9.40 for 350ml, $14.30 for 700ml

Afterthoughts…


I thought the texture, smell and color of this product resembles that of P&G’s Head & Shoulders’.

I’m not a fan of Head & Shoulders as it made my scalp very oily and sticky so I had reservations when I realized the similar physical traits between them.

The fragrance was like floral cum metal, almost like that of detergents’ and it was rather strong. Thumbs down!

During wash, I could feel a cold tingling sensation on my scalp. Very refreshing! However, my hair felt a tad dry after I rinsed the product.

Any noticeable results?

To be honest, I don’t have too much dandruff to begin with so it was hard to spot a significant improvement but I did notice that my hair is almost completely free from dandruff these days.

Here’s a picture.

All in all, I think this is pretty effective in eliminating dandruff, however it had caused my hair to be slightly frizzy. So I guess its a double-edged sword.

Four Honeyz crowns!











CLEAR Women Anti Hair-Fall


$9.40 for 350ml, $14.30 for 700ml


Afterthoughts…

I have contrary opinions about this product. It has a sweet-smelling fragrance and it produces lather rather quickly.

I’ve been suffering from hair loss problems since puberty started and this has caused an enormous amount of stress and anxiety on me. It is always horrifying to see large amounts of hair clogging the shower drain after each hair wash.

To add salt to the wound, the problem is aggravating and I still can’t find a remedy to this. Most shampoo brands that claim to reduce hair falls do not tackle the root of the problem. They merely make hair stronger to prevent hair loss caused by breakages.

So I was relieved to learn that the shampoo increases the scalp’s natural resistance and strengthens hair from the roots. (Yes, they tackle the root of the problem! Pun intended.)

After using the product for four days, I did see noticeable results. Hair fall is less and the shower drain no longer chokes on my crazy amount of hair.

However, my scalp felt slightly greasy too. Well, I’ll continue to use this product for more visible results.

For now, it deserves 4.5 Honeyz crowns.

Besides the female range, I was also sponsored the male range!

Research at CLEAR Paris Institute has shown that there are clear gender differences in scalp types. As such, CLEAR customized their Nutrium10 formula to cater to the specific needs of men and women.

Pro-Nutrium10 for men helps to remove dead skin cells on the scalp’s surface; restores scalp nourishment; and boosts scalp’s natural defense against dandruff and itch.

It has:

• 2 times faster acting results against dandruff with 50% more anti-dandruff actives compared to previous CLEAR shampoos

• 3 times scalp strengtheners compared to CLEAR women’s

• Significantly more protection from dandruff than the global leading anti-dandruff shampoo

With all these favorable factors, I thought my bro ought to try it!

My brother, Sebastian, had his reservations at first as he had used other anti-dandruff products that turned out to be too drying and ineffective in curbing the dandruff problem.

After much persuasion, he finally agreed to risk his hair for my review. 😀

He was like ‘What the heck. Fine. I’ll try the shampoo to substantiate its anti-dandruff claims.’

These were the products The Sample Store sent me.

Me: Hey! Don’t playing with the products! Tell me what you think!

Bro: Ok sorry sorry. I got carried away. Here goes…

Clear Men Anti Hair-Fall


$10.30 for 350ml, $15.70 for 700ml

The shampoo does not have a pleasant smell. In addition, the smell is so overwhelming and it lingers on my head even hours after wash. Not a great feeling.

However, I did notice lesser hair fall after a few washes. I’m grateful for this as hair fall has always been a problematic issue for me.

So I guess the effectiveness of its hair fall control overwrites its unpleasant scent.

What? I have to award Honeyz crowns to the product? Ok fine. 4 Honeyz crowns.

Clear Men Cool Sport Menthol


$10.30 for 350ml, $15.70 for 700ml

Yawn. The packaging of these shampoos is seriously boring…

But the scent of this shampoo fared so much better than the anti-hairfall one. In general, I like shampoos that contain menthol as my hair is rather thick and this means it insulates the scalp even more so I always loved the cooling feeling of menthol on my scalp.

However the cooling feeling was not immediate, unlike other menthol shampoos. It took me about 20 seconds to feel the mint on my scalp. Despite the “lag time”, the mint effect felt very refreshing and invigorating.

After wash, my oily scalp was replaced with a clean and refreshed scalp.

So 4.5 Honeyz crowns!



Me: All in all, do you like the products and would you recommend them to others?

Bro: Well, check out the hair at the crown of my head.

Bro: My dandruff is almost cleared and my scalp feels less greasy.

And his final verdict?

Bro: Yes! I like them and would be happy to introduce them to my friends. 🙂

Kudos to CLEAR! You have won my brother over.
