This stuff is a major money grab. I had been dying to use this because I have naturally thick dry hair. My sister bought this for me as a gift, and it was a total waste of the $60.00 + she spent on it. The scent (mint) was not very glamorous either. All in all very disappointed.
I have used Wen for over a year and find that it is a good conditioner but I do have to use shampoo first otherwise my hair feels like it has a residue in it. I have normally dry, sometimes frizzy hair so it definitely helps with that but I also find it makes my hair feel greasy if I don't use shampoo even though the instructions say not to. And my favorite one is the Pomegranate, I don't like the smell of the Sweet Pea (I believe that's what it's called). I would recommend that if you have frizzy or curly hair, this may work well for you.
I have fine curly hair and this really does keep it soft and bouncy. Just wish it did a better job at keeping away scalp build up- it does so less than other shampoos/conditioners. But I do like my hair on this. Conditions without weighing down!
I ordered the Wen system as a trial and tried it out. I use it as a conditioner after shampooing. I loved the way my scalp felt while I was massaging it in...a cool tingly feeling. After I rinsed it out, I noticed it was easy to rake my hair out. Blow drying was a treat for once. My hair felt soft and silky..no fly aways. I love it!
The instructions on the bottle encourage you to use 11-15 pumps of product per use which is ridiculous seeing as the price is nearly 40$ a bottle. Even the conditioner meant for thin, fine hair had my hair feeling extremely heavy and greasy, in addition most of them have unique scents that I would describe as an aquired smell; many people will not enjoy the scent of their products.
I received a bottle of Wen conditioning cleanser as a gift from my sister, who is addicted to this stuff. I've been using it for about a month now and I have to say I'm impressed! The scent (Cranberry Mint) is fantastic, and you can smell it throughout the house when I use it. My hair tends to be frizzy and wavy, and not a nice wavy. Using Wen, I've noticed that my hair has a nice wave to it, without using product, and it doesn't get frizzy even in the heat and humidity. My hair is noticeably softer and I keep running my fingers through it.... something I couldn't do before because it was always tangled! I think I'll be using this from now on :)
I simply adore this product! It's the only product I've used in my hair for years. It goes above and beyond its duty. Not only does it clean and hydrate your hair but it strengthens it, adds luster & sheen & takes away annoying fly aways. Delivered to your home so no running out & rushing to the store to buy more. This stuff rocks!
By far my favorite, this made my kinky curls soft and manageable and clean without drying it out
Doesn't strip my red color and nourishes my naturally curly hair. I can easily go without any other product on my hair and it looks amazing.
After having numerous clients ask me if I'd tried Wen, I decided to give it a shot so I could give them an honest review.
I bought this product at the As Seen on Tv store. It was $69 for 2 cleansing conditioners, a hair mask, a styling creme and a texture stick.
I read the instructions, and found that the suggested amount to use was absolutely ridiculous. I've always learned, and shared with my clients, that if it's not absorbing, you're just washing it down the drain. With that said, I cut my amount to half of what was suggested. I found it was still plenty.
Due to this product be sulphate/sulphite free, there won't be much lather. I've found if you apply the product to very wet hair, it works better, as well as adding a little splash once you apply the product to your hair. You'll get a better cleansing.
I found I could go 2 days without washing my hair, which is always nice!
After using this product for awhile, I found it started to feel as though it was weighing my hair down so I had to clarify my hair, or at least switch shampoos every few washes.
I now use this as more of a conditioner after my regular shampoo.
