WEN by Chaz Dean Choice of 32 oz Cleansing Conditioner
The product itself works pretty well...I have fine, straight hair which frizzes in humidity and Wen sort of controlled the frizzies.
1) You don't need to use as much product as the packaging suggests. My hair is cut just above my shoulders & I only need 3-4 pumps.
2) Not happy about the packaging. The pump doesn't get all the way to the bottom of the bottle so you need to keep it upside down..which is fine. I do that anyway w/regular shampoo, body wash, etc. when the bottle starts getting empty. It's the Wen product that's difficult to get out of the bottle at that point.
3) The styling products completely weighed my hair down. I applied to the middle of the hair shaft to the ends...after all these years I know not to put anything on my roots.
The MAIN reason I'll continue to use Wen? It doesn't touch my hair color...AT ALL!! I get my hair colored at an Aveda salon & while I love their products & professional hair color the products are a bit harsh for my hair & skin. Wen DOES NOT wash your color out...the color isn't dull, it doesn't get brassy. All I worry about are my roots!
This is a update. I have been using wen for 3 years, it has stopped all the itching and dandruff! I went to the salan and forgot my wen!! Big mistake. Went to itching and dry scalp immediately. Will never go without again! Thanx for a product that does what it says it will do
Tried 2x, I don't get it!
I have tried several different Wen products and I just don't get it. I have listened to the presentation several times and read the reviews. The products do not work for me. I have fine hair that is NOT chemically treated. I had hoped these products would help add volume......NOPE. I sent everything back. Not a fan......
I HAVE DANDRUFF REALLY BAD AND I THOUGHT THIS WOULD WORK FOR ME BUT IT DRIED MY HAIR OUT EVEN MORE AND IRRITATED MY SCALP... GAVE IT TO MY MOM AND SHE LOVES IT. I WILL GET ONE WITH MOISTURE RETENTION IN THE FUTURE
Not happy with this product.
I have tried this in several different flavors, and none worked for me. Tried using more, using less, rinsing better, using a different scent, nothing worked.
What I got was terrible, flakey, itchy scalp that took months to get better.
I am always amazed at all the great reviews, because that is not what I experienced.
Couldn't get past the smell
I ordered 3 bottles of WEN after seeing a presentation on QVC. I believed in the mission/goal/quality of the company. && more importantly, the health of my hair. My hair isn't problematic, thankfully. But my hair is my favorite asset... & I'd like to keep it luscious & long & beautiful. When it comes to shampoo or "cleansing conditioner" the smell does matter. I am constantly smelling my hair & people always tell me that my hair smells amazing! I ordered the pomegranate, cucumber aloe, & lavender. I must say that WEN cleansed my hair very nicely, however, I couldn't feel past the smell of the product. My husband said that it was the menthol in all of them. It was WAY STRONG & really smelled "chemically" like that smell of being in a beauty salon/bleach. I know there aren't any chemicals in it.... But the smell from my bottles was very strong & unpleasant. I couldn't keep washing my hair in an unpleasant environment... The smell of my hair matters too much to me. I hope the amnt of the ingredient that cause such a strong smell can be altered to enhance the "labeled" smell of each WEN. I'm interested in trying the WEN kids, because it's without menthol. If the apple screams "APPLE" instead of "MENTHOL/CHEMICAL/STRONG" I'd be very pleased with it.
It Does Seem To Work
I am happy to have tried this product to see what it's about. I have baby fine color treated hair. I have to watch too much conditioner or it ends up greasy. I think this product line probably works best for folks with thick, dry unruly hair or those obsessed with their color. If I were to continue to use this I could never use styling products again. But, my hair feels cleaner than I thought it would and not totally flat. I just think I enjoy suds more. I'm glad I tried this.
I LOVE MY WEN CLEANSING CONDITIONER!! BEST EVER
I ORDERED THIS 32 oz of THE SWEET ALMOND MINT WEN AND ITS FABULOUS!! BEST PRODUCT FOR MY HAIR ALONG W/ THE STYLING PRODUCTS... PLEASE BRING BACK WINTER VANILLA MINT.....PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fig cleansing conditioner
This size bottle lasted me just under 4 months. I would use a total of 16 pumps per use, 2-3 times per week. I would also use about half of one pump daily as a leave in conditioner. It did improve the over all health of my hair. I notice less frizz, more volume, and my hair looks more healthy. I dislike the tingly feeling. And the smell reminds me of cough drops and Ben gay/icy hot. I did notice that with every use I would shed a few strands of hair, usually no big deal, but I was shedding enough to clog my tub at least twice in the 4 months. I recently tried WEN's Sweet almond mint cleansing conditioner and I love it so much more... no complaints with that one so far! I plan to try more and find the best one for me.
I love this product and use it everyday. One thing would make it perfect; is there a way to add sunscreen to this product? I have very thin hair and my scalp gets sunburned very easily. Wearing a hat is not the answer! I'm waiting for a hair care product to come out with sunscreen and am surprised that it hasn't yet - would love it if Wen was the first!
I absolutely LOVE this Wen shampoo/conditioner! I have thick, coarse, color treated hair. I flat iron and curl daily. This product has done wonders for my hair, and it has grown about 4 inches since last oct.! YAY!!!
My hair is healthy and beautiful again!
Thank you Chaz :)
WEN cleansing conditioner sweet almond mint
I was introduced to WEN products over one year ago by a friend. This is the best product I've ever used for my hair care. I am a 54 year old black woman with natural hair and women of color are not represented in the commercials, advertisements and infomercials. They note and mention that the products are designed for all hair types. I can validate the WEN hair care system to my black sisters. It would be nice to see us in some of the ads.
