WEN by Chaz Dean Choice of 16 oz Cleansing Conditioner
I have used Lavendar for several years and leaves hair flexible and quickly stlyled, but does not produce shine I prefer. Wish there was Wen spray which would do this!
I use nothing but Wen
I have used Wen for years. I use nothing else and I have short, naturally curly hair and by using this I only have to wash my hair every 4-5 days. It's cleanser and conditioner in one and I just love it. My favorite is the Sweet Almond Mint but I really like especially the smell of the fig as well.
I started using Wen for the second time this past Jan and I am falling in love. I'm finding mixing Tea Tree and Fig is giving me great results and my hair was extremely damaged and recently my hairdresser has noticed my hair is in way better condition. I do plan to try Bamboo Green Tea next and mix it with tea tree as Chaz said they go great together.
Anyone with extremely damaged over processed hair I highly suggest making a cocktail with fig and tea tree!
Doesn't live up to hype
I have tried several of Wen's conditioners. They all dry out my hair. It does not leave my hair soft and shiny. It leaves it dry and dull. I follow the directions exactly, but it does not work. It is too expensive to have dry and dull hair.
Loved this hair cleanser. I am almost 70yrs. old and my hair looks shiny, bouncy like a kid. I have baby fine hair so it didn't weight it down either.
Pomegranate Scent: Works great, smells...ok
I first tried Wen last winter going directly from daily shampooing to Wen. It was highly unsuccessful (hair was greasy and limp) and I gave up. Over the past year I've gone to using sulphate free shampoo and finally got my hair healthy (and ungreasy) enough to wash every 2-3 days. When I saw Wen on TV again last month, I figured I'd try it once more and gave the Peach scent a try. I LOVED the peach scent AND it worked AMAZINGLY! My long straight hair has NEVER looked so fabulous!!
Since peach is a seasonal scent and not available in gallon sizes (and Wen IS super expensive), I figured I'd take advantage of QVC's $177 / gallon availability in June. I picked Pomegranate since its a formulation similar to the peach scent (gluten free, for all hair types, etc).
The Pomegranate works just as good of course, but the smell? Eh. When you first put it on your head, it smells like strong cherry cough syrup. It reminds me of being sick as a child and having to take that horrid medicine - not very good. But the smell dissipates rather quickly. My husband likes the smell of my hair after that initial cough syrup smell goes away so I guess between that and the fact that it works, I'll keep it. I've just resigned myself to holding my breath for a few seconds as it first gets wet and worked into my hair. Its a small price to pay for fabulous hair!
HOWEVER!! If Chaz Dean and the Wen team could make the smell of Pomegranate NOT so initially bad, that would make the overall rating of this scent 5+ stars!
I do not like these WEN products at all. You need to use a huge amount, and then, if you follow the directions, you use a different amount of product on each section of your hair.
Shampoo should just be intuitive...
The products make my hair greasy, and I will not use them again.
Not getting the same results at this high, dry altitude as I get back in the hot, humid South. But know this is probably the ideal thing to use for the dryness.
I was quite disappointed that it took two weeks for the item to arrive.
I have been a WEN user for a few years now. I have tried some of the other mixtures but the Pomegranate is my favorite. The pricing is also good. I have tried to purchase directly from the WEN web site and got roped into purchasing a starter kit when all I wanted was the cleanser and the anti frizz style cream. To purchase these 2 products on WEN web site you must agree to auto delivery. This stinks. At least on QVC you get the option of auto delivery or one time purchase. I'm the only one in my home that uses WEN and to be made to agree to auto delivery every 3 months or so or remember to go back and cancel it before it is shipped just doesn't work for me.
I have one request of QVC...if you could carry the anti frizz style cream. I love this product, as I tried it from the WEN web site kit.. But I can't get just that from that web site. Please...it is a great product....
This is my first time trying Wen. I have very curly, coarse and frizzy hair. I have to blow dry it to straighten it. I followed the instructions exactly. For medium length hair it says to use 24 pumps. It also suggested that you can split the number of pumps in half and use 12 (in my case) for the first application and then rinse in COOL water and then repeat. I left it in about 10 minutes and applied it evenly through my entire hair. The following day I repeated this process over again because Chaz said it is so gentle you can use it every day. I also recall that the instruction booklet stated that direct heat from a blow dryer should not be used directly on hair. So I even used a diffuser on my blow dryer.
I saw no difference in my hair. I ordered the Fig as Chaz said Fig is the most moisturizing for dry damaged hair.
I know one thing for sure, my hair DID NOT look anything like the hair on the QVC models!!. First of all, it is very obvious that all those models had their hair curled behind the scenes. When they showed the before photo and the live shot of their hair, the before photo shows straight flyaway unruly hair. The live shot shows tons of curls. The curls do not look like curls from naturally curly hair, they look like "set curls". All the models hair have amazing bounce, shine and curl.
I even used extra on one specific area of my hair in the back of my head that is flyaway and dry.
I do not mind spending money on something that will have positive results and improve my hair, but this is pricy for something that showed zero improvement for my hair.
I love WEN. This product not only smells great it also makes my hair smooth and soft. I will never return to shampoo and conditioner again. Everything is in one bottle..
Lavender is Fantastic!
I had bought the Pomegante and Sweet Almond. They were pretty good. I then decided to try the Lavendar. THIS IS GREAT! I've been using it for 2 weeks and I love it. It tingles my hair all the way to the scalp. It gives my hair a great luster. I have very thin hair and it's light enough to not weigh my hair down. I wasn't expecting it to do such a good job. I just love the smell and the feeling it gives my scalp. So, far, of all the Wen I have tried, Lavendar is my favorite. I'm very, very satisfied.
