A couple things to know about me. One my hair is damaged though I do things and take vitamins to help. Two the reason it is damaged is due to coloring my hair. Now ya I have learned different things to not hurt my hair as badly over the years. I can happily say it is not as bad as it once was. Still every couple days or weeks it still needs some TLC. Who’s doesn’t? Lets be honest.
Not many of us really think about that whether we color our hair or not. Well I had a chance to try a shampoo I never heard of before recently. Clear Scalp & Hair. Needless to say I was a bit curious since I am always on the look out for shampoos that will help my hair!
Clear: Damage & Color Repair:
So their claim to fame with this is that it is both safe for color treated hair. As well as within seven days of using this you should be able to reverse damage done on a daily basis to ones hair. All while nourishing your scalp and hair.
So the sample I got lasted me exactly that. Seven days. I used this product. So does this stuff really work?
Well examining my hair today, though it did not strip any color out it didn’t quite do what I would expect a damage repair shampoo to do. This being said though I also don’t wash my hair every day. I wash it two to maybe three times a week. So this could be why it didn’t have the same effect perhaps? I am unsure. In order for me to test that theory I would need to get a full sized bottle.
So if your looking for something safe on color and smells great. This works if your looking for something that is going to do some major damage control. Perhaps if it is paired with something else or used more consecutively this may work but that is undetermined at this time.

“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul.” I tend to think about this quote often when I am picking soap for my family. I don’t like soaps that leave residue or that don’t leave me feeling clean. I hate buying soap only to have it not help my skin in anyway or my health. I want to be clean when I am done washing. Not feel like I just went from dirty to slimy. I also figure many of you may struggle with this issue as well. Always looking for a better soap. A soap you may fall in love with and just have to have.
I am always trying something looking for what works best for me. I try from liquid shower gels to bars. I have found a couple I like but after a while I get tired and need that next one. With me being all about supporting smaller companies I took to Etsy once again and stumbled across LaughingDevilDesigns.
Eucalyptus Tea Tree (Soothing Body Soap)
Aka: Sniffle Soap
Full ingredient list:Saponified Oils of Organic Olive, Organic Extra-Virgin Coconut, Organic Sunflower Oil, Fair- Trade Shea Butter, with Organic Tea Tree Essential Oi, Organic Eucalyptus Essential Oil, and Organic Peppermint leaves
The reason I choice to try this soap particularly was for two reasons. Firstly I suffer from severe asthma. Specially in hotter weather. The Eucalyptus within the bar of soap I figured should help with my breathing issues in the shower. Which is always a good thing since anyone with asthma knows how much a asthma attack and the chest pain with it can suck.
Secondly I choice this soap for the Tea Tree Oil. Tea tree oil being good for the skin specially when one suffers from acne, as I do. I figured this would be a good a positive soap for me in the end with both positive aspects of this.
So the aroma of this soap was just very lush potent and amazing. Though I love the scent of tea tree oil so that helps since it smells greatly of it. With a soft mint like under tone which complemented the scent rather well in my opinion.The feeling of the soap dry was soft and smooth the leaves giving just enough of a texture to give a soft scrub when used.The soap lathered quickly and thickly. Which mean I did not have to struggle to get a nice lather going. It had a silky smooth texture and when washed away left my skin feeling clean and not oily.
After a couple days of use this soap proved to do what I had hopes it would do. It started to clear up my skin where I had larger breakouts at, at that time. It left my skin smooth once dried as well. I am fully in love with this soap and would highly suggest it for anyone whom may suffer any of the above issues. This soap would also be very good for when one has a cold or in general the starts of the sniffles. The mix of the eucalyptus, peppermint leaves and tea tree oil all will open up your sinuses rather quickly in a hot shower with this bar of soap being used.
The packaging of the soap as well, I have to mention how adorable it is! It kind of reminded me of a vintage country time market sort of thing. I am not sure that is how it is meant to be seen but it is how it came off to me. I loved it.
I can’t wait to try more of their soaps in the future! I was thrilled with the outcome of this and fully happy to say you should already be buying this soap if you aren’t yet!
They were fully on the ball the whole time. Top notch and ready to please. This is a outstanding feature and just made the overall experience with them to be very much pleasant. If your in need a of a new soap the I will proudly stand behind LaughingDevilDesigns and their product. I do recommend them highly!
