WEN by Chaz Dean Choice of 16 oz Cleansing Conditioner
I will never use shampoo on my hair again!! My grey hair is absolutely beautiful and shiny! Thank you Chaz for creating such a wonderful product :-)
First time user of Wen
I'm not sure if I got the wrong one or not, but I used this and liked how my hair looked after a couple of treatments, but one thing I noticed is it stripped my color. I had my hair colored on the weekend I started using this product during the same time and by the end of the week you could see tons of gray hair. That never happens, plus my hair was frizzy. That was one thing I expected would be very little by using this product. Not happy. I just want to try another cleanser, but I'm not sure which one I should go with. I love the 613 and the Bamboo Green Tea. All of these scents don't smell good to me. Only those two I like to smell. Sweet Almond Mint is ok.
I have used wen for many years and I have been having my hair fall out so I quit using for almost a year and my hair quit falling out. I bought the gallon of it so what a waste of money. I also have the oil the mouse and the spray all wasted. Think I'll try Alterna.. :) sry Chaz love you but I love my hair more.
Shocked How Great this is
i waited a long time to purchase, saw the infomercial, saw how it worked on colored hair, and thought if i dont like it i cam always send it back. wow , beyond impressed, couldnt believe my hair could be so manageable and my hair is down to my knees. just try it!
Don't Give Up!
Those of you who may not be satisfied at first, please keep trying different types I promise it is so worth it!!! Another tip, if it makes your hair flat an greasy use LESS. I have medium length average hair, and I use lavender. Two to three pumps is all I use and my hair has gone from damaged to healthy and beautiful. I love WEN and will never go back to shampoo. Hope this helps!
My hair is fine and in a layered style. It is also colored. Pomegranate is the best one I have tried for my hair type. I don't have to use any cother product except hair spray. It makes my hair feel thicker, more manageable and it keeps the color. It also makes my hair very shiney. I love what it does to my hair. I highly recommend it for fine hair.

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.
