WEN by Chaz Dean Choice of 32 oz Cleansing Conditioner
Does not soften my hair
I was greatly disappointed. All the hype....what for? I was super excited when it arrived, and when I put it on my natural hair, my hair was NOT impressed at all! I tried it a couple more times - and again and again my hair felt like I was putting water and soap on it. The only thing that I felt was the mint. But the softness that it so boldly claims is FALSE! Sorry WEN, but I will not buy from you again. To natural black women out there, I would recommend "Herbal Essence, Hello Hydration." I looked up the reviews off of Amazon, and decided to go that route after the WEN let down. And OMG! I'm sooooo glad I did. Not only cheaper, but you get as much as the WEN bottles, and it leaves my hair feeling sooooo Super Soft!!! Good luck ladies.
Did not work for my hair
The "Fig" brand was my third attempt at using the "WEN" hair cleanser products. I tried the Tea Tree cleanser, Sweet Almond Mint and now the Fig, all three were horrible on my hair. Did not make it look healthier or feel moisturized. In fact, all of these cleansers, especially the fig, made my hair extra dry (almost dread lock) and gave me a super itchy scalp. Totally disappointed as I've seen it work for people I know. I did everything exactly as directed per instructions on the bottle. :(
Nice feel; bad smell.
I ordered the fig. My hair feels nice but my scalp is terribly itchy and it has the most appalling scent--rather like some sort of stripping agent.
I wish some sample packets had been included to try the other scents as I'd rather not invest so much money in trying to find the one I like best. As it stands, it seems unlikely that I'll reorder which is a shame because it does a nice job on the hair itself.
Depends on Formula
I had tried everything on my hair (which is very thick, curly and frizzy - even living in the desert I have issues with major frizz) - my hair dresser recommended I try wen and I purchased the White Citrus winter formula and LOVED IT - my hair would stay soft for days and I never had to worry about frizz.
I decided to try the fig formula next as this one seems more tailored to my hair type and was disappointed. My hair doesn't seem to retain the same moisture with this formula and after a couple hours my hair frizzes. I'm pretty disappointed and wish there was some sort of test or smaller sizes to try the different scents / formulas.
I will probably try out one other formula but will go back to my old hair products (which are a fraction of the cost) if the results are similar to the fig. I wish the White Citrus wasn't only a seasonal!
Havep tried them all/great productss
My husband and I use Wen consistently. I have tried everyone of the conditions to see which works best. My husband has oily scalp and I have dry and color treated hair. We normally have 2 or 3 we are using, or mix them. It depends on your hair which will work best for you.
best product ever
when I first got wen it was a Christmas present from my mother. I have always wanted to try this product. Since then I have not gone back to any other shampoo. Yes in the beginning your hair feels greasy that's only because you didn't rinse it well enough. It happened to me a couple times an almost didn't order another one but once you get the hang of it.. It is worth it .my hair was frizzy dead now it's silky and light. I love this product
Wen will it get better?
This haircare line could possibly be the worst purchase i have ever made. Not only is it overpriced, but i had to change my schedule of washing my hair from every three days, to every single day. My hair is somewhat fine, but i have a lot of hair, making it appear thicker than it really is. This product left my hair greasy and limp, dulled down the shine of my professional color, and doubled my styling time.. And lets be honest, who has the time to double in the morning when you're racing to get to work?! I have used many professional shampoo's over the years that were much cheaper in price and worked so much better than wen. I was excited to purchase it and see some magical change in the appearance and health of my hair, and was highly disappointed after a month of continuous use. I would never purchase this product again, it is so overrated!!
After years of my cousin telling us how awesome WEN is (she models for QVC and her hair is naturally fabulous so I took it with a grain of salt) someone sent my mother a bottle of WEN for some holiday. She called me a week later telling me how wonderful it is and how healthy her hair felt, I rolled my eyes and told her that I only use Redken products. For Christmas she sent me a bottle of WEN and I will NEVER go back to Redken! My poor hair has seen me through many different colors and bleachings, it's dry brittle and sad. It hasn't grown since 10th grade. Now, it's bright, shiny, silky, soft and HEALTHY. It's even growing! My hairdresser even noticed and is thinking about buying herself a bottle. The trick is to actually follow the instructions on the bottle, they're not trying to get you to use more so that you run out of it quicker. If you use less than you need, you'll feel greasy on day #2, but if you use it correctly, you'll really see results! This is a great product!
Greatest hair product
Hats off to Wen! Chaz's products are the best. I hadn't used this for awhile as I was using something for hair straighening which was causing me to lose hare. When I begain using this in February, my hair instantly became soft and I stopped losing hair. Hats off to Wen!
My Hairdresser Warned Me
This builds up on my scalp and noticed how much hair I was losing in the drain. Gave 2 stars as it keeps my hair color.
I have a problem with a lot of shampoos, my hair always feels greasy and so heavy, and to top it off, the frizz is crazy. So when I started using Wen, I went with the Lavender. I love it! My hair feels so soft and light. I never get that weighed down feeling, or even the greasy look anymore. I couldn't imagine using anything else execpt Wen. I have even used a little bit of my cleansing conditioner to shave my legs! It made my legs feel super soft, and they never get irritated ;)
HAIR FELL OUT
I have been using Wen for about 16 months. Thought it was a great product at first. Then my hair started falling out. I actually have a bald spot. There were long strands of hair all over my house and also larger clumps in the shower. After many tests to see if something was medically wrong (all were negative) I decided to try the process of elimination of the products I use. Much to my surprise when I stopped the WEN within 2 weeks my hair stopped coming out. I really started researching this product and found there are many people that had the same problem with this product. I was SHOCKED at what I was reading. Do the research before you buying this. There are ingredients in this that aren't disclosed. I wouldn't even give it one star!
