PRODUCTS. THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU.
Sorry to say this is the second bottle I tried sent the first one back....after watching Chaz again I said try a different scent for thin hair.....when you use it the first day your hair feels like silk... but the very next day my thin fine hair looked like I had not washed it the very day before...I will not send it back I am tired of paying shipping on returns....I will use a dab of it for just conditioner on my ends after using other shampoos...sorry Chaz I like Nick's products much better.....
My routine for the past 40 years: 1st wash - clarifying shampoo to get out all the old product out of my baby-fine, should-length hair, 2nd wash - volumizing shampoo, then conditioner, and then styling products - mousse, texturizer and gel volumizer and then blow it out. Then electric rollers, maybe a little curling iron, hair spray, brush it out, hair spray, brush it out, and then 1 more final round of hair spray. I am not kidding.
I wanted to try WEN for two reasons: several years ago, I began to have open sores in my mouth which were found to be caused by exposure to sodium laureate sulfate in my toothpaste and also because I was just plain tired of that whole hair routine. Sodium laureate sulfate is in every shampoo and soap and I just knew it wasn't good for me.
I searched for a lot of information about the WEN cleansing conditioner. It said that for a 16 oz bottle, I should use a minimum of 24 pumps. It only took about a teaspoon of my regular shampoo to produce lather falling off my head. I thought that this couldn't be right. Being the frugal type, I developed a plan. I would start off with the two rounds of 12 pumps (for a total of 24) and if I liked it, I would reduce the pumps some each time that I washed it later until I got to an amount that was the right amount.
So I tried WEN for the first time with 24 pumps (thinking that I probably need this much the first time at least because of all the old products in my hair). Next, I used the styling creme, volumizing mist and the nourishing mouse (everything in WEN lavender) and then just let it dry naturally. I do like products! My hair was transformed. It was soft, easy to comb ( no more hair from tangles in the comb), fuller and just plain pretty. I could not ask for more.
The next day, still good hair and it didn't need washing (I normally shampoo every 2-3 days). The second day, I had to wash it to stay on my usual weekday schedule (using 20 total pumps). Still good hair. Next wash, down to 16 pumps and maybe I noticed a little greasiness by the 2nd day but I shrugged it off. I even went down to 14 pumps the next wash and that was a mistake! Definite greasiness - like I had not washed it. The next day, I washed it again, going back up to 20 pumps (the last level with really good hair). My beautiful hair returned!
So, I'm definitely sticking with WEN. But here are my recommendations: Either use the recommended number of pumps or try going down a little at a time until you find the number of pumps that's right for you (go back UP if your hair is not clean), rinse well (it really didn't make a difference in my case whether it was hot, warm or cool but I think it's important to rinse well not only to get the WEN out but all that other gunk that the WEN has loosened and absorbed) and remember to put the styling creme only mid-way and down on your hair (not on the roots).
I kept all my other shampoos and other products, thinking that I would still use them up over time. Nope! Into the garbage can because now I don't want those things on my hair and body. Thank you, Chaz, I wish that I had tried it sooner.
Great Product, Bad Packaging
While I love Wen conditioning cleanser but I've never liked the pump bottle. So now I fill a large clear plastic ketchup bottle with Wen from the gallon bottle and keep it in my shower. The product is easier to dispense and because the bottle is clear I can tell when to refill or reorder. Also because the ketchup bottle lid is flat I can turn the bottle upside down and use every last bit of product. I hope Chaz rethinks his packaging with this thought in mind in the future.
Conditioner as a soap?
I had big hopes for this product, but unfortunately the hype sucked me in. First time I used it, following directions to the letter, my hair fluffed up so much I looked like I had an afro or stuck my finger in the socket. Tried again and again, blow drying it thoroughly, doing this, doing that, but still nothing.
My conclusion is, this is nothing but a heavy, oily conditioner that cannot be used over and over with still expecting clean hair. Simply rinsing your hair does not clean it. I'm keeping it to use as maybe a weekly conditioner, 'cause truly, that's all it is.
Love, love, love!!!
I purchased the Cucumber and I am in love!!! My hair has been falling out in handfuls, after washing it with this twice it has stopped. Hair looks healthy, shiny, and having a great hair day every day!!! I do recommend using a little less that what they state if you have short or fine hair, and you have to rinse it really well, but your hair will look amazing!!!
So Far So Good!
Received this cleansing conditioner in the Sweet Almond Mint scent the other day....Used it twice already and I'm very happy with the way my hair looks....My hair is short, in an outdated, lol, Wedge style...I only need to have my hair colored/highlighted every 3 months, yes, I'm fortunate....Both times that I've used this conditioner, I used about 9 pumps, washing it only once, and rinsing it clean with very "hot" water....This routine definitely works for my hair.....Unlike other reviews where women have stated that their hair after using this product, becomes greasy, it could be because they are not rinsing their hair thoroughly, and are using cool water rather than hot.....I watched several of Chaz Dean's infomercials, and was on the fence for quite a while.....Glad I finally decided to order Wen....I don't think I will ever go back to using shampoo ever again.....:)
I'm in my late 50's and have oily, color treated hair. This product did a great job cleaning my hair and was very conditioning on my scalp as well. It brought back the shine and I really liked it. A couple of issues, it's expensive and when there was still around 1/3 of the bottle left the pump no longer worked. I see that a few other people commented on this as well. The pump issue needs to be addressed. All that being said, I'm thinking of reordering. I would not recommend this as a gift because I think it's really important to get the correct product for your hair and I would think most people would want to pick out their own.
I have a dry scalp and no matter what I tried it always itched. The dryness and itchness has went away since I started using the Lavender cleansing conditioner. I would never go back to shampoo
Not for me
I may be the exception, but this product did not work for me. My hair was more greasy like and limp. However, I wash my hair every day.
Its all about the pump
Just received my Wen product today. Haven't tried it yet. This is all about the pump.
When I have a pump for a brand new container of a product, I do not check to see if that pump works. Its BRAND new! So I didn't this time either. Mistake! Fortunately I remembered in the deep crevices of my brain, reading the review from "Mames", and was able to rectify the problem. I have another "shame on you" for QVC/Chaz Dean Inc. It is obvious from Mames review that this is not the first problem with the pump. If the pump is not going to be re-designed then a flyer or some other form of notification must be included with the product and pump. This is not good customer service. I would love to hear from QVC/Chaz Dean Inc. on their thoughts about this problem. :(
My hairstylist use this Wen
I love the way I feels . I can comb and brush my hair without hair coming out on the comb or brush. I can't wait to try Wen promade.
