THIS IS MY FAVORITE
I LOVE the pomegranate! WEN is amazing. I look forward to cleansing my hair with this and I'm almost out of pomegranate (also have four other "flavors"!) I start to panic when I get low on this one. What more can I say!!!
Glad I tried it
I was very hesitant to try this because I don't generally like fruity or flowery scents. I have very fine hair (but a lot of it) and I do get a "halo" of frizz particularly when humidity is high. When I asked for recommendations from WEN, this is one that was recommended to me. I'm glad I tried it. My hair is much "tamer" after using it, but not at all flat or weighed down. It's a very light formula. And the pomegranate "fruity" smell is not at all overpowering. I won't say I'm crazy about it like I am some of the other fragrances, but I will use it because of the good results I see.
Apparently I'm not a 'WEN girl'
I really wanted this to be the last cleansing product I would ever need. I like the way it smells and I liked the tingle I felt when it was on my hair in the shower. I also liked that it took no effort to comb through my usually tangled mop after toweling dry. That is where my love affair with this product ended. Once dry, my hair never felt clean and my scalp was itchy within 24 hours, which sometimes happens when I don't shampoo for a couple of days. I'm sorry I wont' be a 'WEN girl' but it's not for me.
I bought the gallon size and it is sold out so I am reviewing on the smaller size. Chaz makes a big deal about this cleanser not fading color from the hair. Unfortunately that is not true. I have been using this since having my hair colored to match a hair piece. That was about two months ago. I can no longer wear the hair piece until I re-color my hair. It will be necessary to run the color through the hair shaft to match it again, unlike what Chaz describes. I have my hair colored red and that may be a factor, but I didn't buy the product until he showed one of the models with red hair. I will continue to use the product for cleansing, as I think it is good for that, but I won't expect to color just the re-growth.
I have tried it a few times, and I just dont like the feel of my hair afterwards. I didn't use too much and I really rinsed alot. Also, I did not like the smell. It smelled like medicine. I am going to return it, even though the shipping is high. I really wanted to like this shampoo, but I will stick with Nick Chavez.
Pomegranate vs. Almond Mint
While I very much like how the Pomegranate is lighter than the Almond or Chocolate products, I don't really care for the smell. It doesn't emit an unpleasant odor as I go throughout the day or anything, it's just a slight medicine smell in the shower. My kids & husband don't say anymore, "Mmm, your hair smells good."
I would recommend it though if the others left your hair feeling heavy and over-coated. I've since learned not to use the full eight pumps to shampoo. I don't even add more after shampooing and it still has long-lasting curl and healthy body.
I'm a Convert
I have fairly healthy hair to begin with and didn't think this would do much for me, but I gave it a shot because of all the rave reviews. It felt nice and smelled really good, but for that price, I didn't think it was doing anything special. After a couple of weeks, I went back to shampoo. WOW, was there a difference! It was ASTOUNDING how flat and ashy my dark hair looked! No life, no bounce, no shine to be found. I immediately threw out the shampoo and ordered more Wen. I have since ordered the Lavender gallon and can't wait to see how that works for me.
Yes, it's definitely more expensive than the generic, no-name shampoo I used forever, but it's worth it. At a certain age, a person needs to figure out where she can afford a little luxury in her life and having good hair is definitely worth it!
It's hard to find the right amount to use so my fine hair doesn't feel heavy. When I went to get my haircut she told me my hair had alot of build up. Don't think I'll order again.
I made my first WEN purchase a few days ago, and have used this product every day since. I was expecting to not like the product, as I have an issue with shampoo/cleansers that do not lather. But I have to admit I love it. It made my hair feel clean and during blow drying I could see how much body it had. Have also used it on my daughters hair, which is very curly, and was impressed with how soft it made her hair feel. Am now going to try the styling lotion for more curl definition on my daughter. I am a hairstylist and have tried many of the Sulfate Free shampoos and this product far surpasses the results that I received with other Sulfate free products.
Not my fave of the 4 formulas I use...
I don't care for this one. I have used nothing but Wen since Oct - 8 months - first the Autumn, onto Winter, then the Spring special formulas. My fave was the Autumn - the Pumpkin. But I decided this time to try this one, and it don't like it very much. It doesn't rinse out as well, and I am not doing anything differently than I have with the others. Maybe I have to?
Love my Wen
Ive used Wen before on my unprocessed, African-American hair and I wasn't impressed. Then I had a keratin treatment (Brazilian blow-out) and I borrowed my mom's Wen because I ran out of the shampoo I was supposed to use to support the keratin treatment in my hair. Wen worked really well on my hair. My hair is also color treated and Wen made my hair silky and I was able to comb right through my hair. It's an amazing product and I don't want to use anything else. I already threw away and removed all other products from shower. Because my hair is extremely kinky and I have 2 different textures of hair it's important to find a product that works on different hair types. Also Wen is cutting down on the amount of shedding that occurs when I shampoo. It moisturizes my hair effectively so my hair isnt weighed down, and it has amazing body. More importantly it works really well with the keratin treatment in my hair because it doesn't have all the harsh detergents and synthetic ingredients that strip your hair. Amazing product now nothing else will do.
