WEN by Chaz Dean Choice of 32 oz Cleansing Conditioner
Not Sold on Wen yet
It's nothing special so far. I've been using it about a month. After a few times my hair has been getting greasy. I read the reviews and saw maybe I wasn't using enough. I tried it and It didn't work and really doesn't make sense as a solution to me. I went "no poo" for a year just baking soda and vinegar and my hair felt better than this. I'm going to finish the bottle and see if my hair just needs to get used to not being dries out by regular shampoo.
Help for scalp breakouts
Didn't know what WEN was until seeing article in October issue of Vogue magazine about conditioner hair washing. Had seen wen presentations but thought it was a line of shampoos. After reading the article, looked at Wen on qvc.com. Read carefully about the formulas to choose your product. I am acne prone (still, at 50+!) and have breakouts on my scalp so chose the tea tree formula. Hair feels clean and less dry and breakouts seem to be diminishing. Hair seems more manageable as well. Gave 4 stars for now, will see how longer term use pans out. Would not recommend as a gift unless I knew the person used it, large quantity of personal care item.
Only Use WEN now
It took many years but I now only use WEN to cleanse my hair - never shampoo. I originally tried the Fig formula about 10 years ago and hated it - it built up in my hair after a few uses and I found my naturally curly hair frizzy and unmanageable. Years later, my dog was suffering severely from allergies and I tried the Tea Tree formula on him and it worked wonders. He wasn't scratching and a chewing as mush from dry itchy skin. I too started using the Tea Tree which was working soo great in my hair.
Please understand the different formulas are not just the fragrances but work differently for the specific hair types indicated. I kept using Tea Tree until I discovered the Bamboo Green Tea - my favorite! But darn it if I can ever catch a special value with that formula! It seems the majority agree with me and it's always sold out!
In the meantime, I love Fig again but I wear my hair the complete opposite from when I tried it the first time - highlighted and straightened with high heat tools (read: dry and dead) so it is thriving from the supreme moisture of Fig. I also mix in the Six Thirteen for a nice treatment weekly. This one smells amazing to me as well.
Look at the Protein Source
I wasn't paying attention and chose one of the Soy products. With a Hypothyroid condition, it had a negative effect. Tried one of your Rice products and didn't like the feel. I am back to your Wheat products but would like to be able to experience some of your Seasonal scents.... they are all Soy.
Best Hair Product I've EVER Used!
I purchased WEN 32 oz Fig Cleansing Conditioner for my long (to my waist), thick, and wavy hair. I am 47, and do not use any heat products on my hair, and still, it was hard to comb out after washing with my regular shampoo/conditioner. Consequently, I dreaded hair-washing days. My shipment came yesterday, and I immediately used the Cleansing Conditioner and was absolutely shocked at the way my hair responded. I used 24 pumps, and split it into the recommended cleanse, rinse, and repeat option. I didn't quite understand the instructions and -- my mistake -- I towel dried my hair before adding 1/2 pump for my leave-in. This is wrong. The instructions say to add the additional 1/2 pump to soaking wet hair. I guess it just didn't make sense to me. My hair still feels great, it was a dream to comb out. I air-dried as usual, and it isn't frizzy at all. It's soft and silky, has great shine, and a lot more body than usual. I just purchased the Styling Cream, Nourishing Mousse, and the medium round brush to add to my collection. I'm a happy WEN girl. My only advise is to really understand the instructions to achieve maximum results. Soaking wet literally means dripping in the shower. I watched a video and Chaz Dean recommended keeping all of the products in the shower to use before you ever even get out. I think that's a great idea.

Have been wanting to try WEN for quite some time and finally decided to take the plunge. Got the Pomegranate and loved it! My hair color looked great and my hair had volume (I have very thick, fine hair). However, I do wash my hair ever day as it gets oily and even WEN couldn't change that. Just shy of a month I had gone through a 32 oz bottle! I was using WEN just as instructed but I can't afford to go through a bottle a month! My purchase is on auto delivery and I can't alter the delivery date. So, went to the local Sephora to get another bottle. No Pomegranate so thought I would try the Mint Almond until my next delivery. Horrible! My hair is lifeless and flat and my scalp itchy and flaky. I am going back to my regular shampoo and conditioner. I can afford it and it never did anything like this to my scalp. I'm still debating on whether or not to try the Pomegranate when I get my next auto delivery. But I still have plenty of time to think about it before the next shipment at the end of November!
Was encouraged to try when visiting my mom and really liked it. Ordered as soon as I got home and now my husband and young children also use daily. Husband's hair is coming in thicker! Both of my children's hair having beautiful results. Will add that I had to figure out the best way to rinse my hair was in layers using brush as I rinse out but I have unusually thick hair, minus the frizz now! Happy Happy!
EXCELLENT FOR MOISTURE ONLY!!!!
I love WEN.... BUT... I noticed that it causes me to lose a lot more hair than other non Wen conditioners, I do not know why this is but it is the case. This Wen Cleanser is great if you have DRY BRITTLE, OVER PROCESSED, BLEACHED hair because it puts A LOT OF MOISTURE into the hair. BUT if your hair is healthy or semi- healthy, you can MIX WEN with a non wen protein conditioner so that your hair doesn't get over moisturized and it will reduces the hair loss greatly. Works like a charm for me !
I tried this and after the 5th time using,my hair fell out complete with the nodule. It will not grow back. Although it was just 1 nodule, about 15 strands of hair were attached to it. Not good, at least for me.
Great for guys too
I love the Tea Tree, it has replaced my shampoo, conditioner, and shaving products. Using Wen as a shaving cream more than justifies the price alone. Since I replaced my shaving cream with Wen I no longer get any shaving irritation and I no longer use a post shave balm. Can't wait to try the new Amber Woods Men's Cleanser!
another great one
I have been using Six Thirteen now for about 2 months and I love it. It makes my hair extremely soft and manageable. I have also used fig and lavender. I like to mix them for differing results. My husband has grey hair and it was very curly when he was younger. Now it gets 'wiry'. He has used Tea Tree and has been happy with it but now he just puts a little dollop of six thirteen and rubs it on his hands then runs his hands through his hair. It makes his hair lay beautifully. I have medium to long hair and I find I don't need to wash it near as often.

This product is not suitable for ladies with thin dry hair. This product made my hair very oily looking and took several washes to remove. Tried again with less than the recommended application and the same results. Sent the product back.
