A couple weeks ago I received a bottle of Chaz Dean's WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner to sample and review. If you have never heard of Wen Haircare follow the link to learn more. This product is both a cleanser and conditioner in one easy step. It doesn't lather like regular shampoos, it's all natural and has no sodium laurel sulfate or other detergents usually found in shampoos.
I had seen this product advertised on QVC for quite some time and had been waiting on purchasing it to see if I could find someone I knew who had tried it out. So, imagine my excitement when I got the chance to sample and review this, I literally jumped. When I received the bottle I opened it up to take a look and a whiff. The consistency is that of a deep conditioner, nothing like the shampoos that I normally use. But I guess that is because it's not a shampoo, it is a conditioner that cleanses. The fragrance is pleasant and not over powering. The mint is mild, this is the scent I was most concerned about since I don't like mint scented bath and body products.
It takes anywhere from 10 -16 pumps, depending on hair length. You apply to wet hair and massage into the scalp and down the shaft of the hair. After you have massaged it in, it's best to wait until you have finished in the shower to experience the deep conditioning effects. As I have gotten older my hair has really begun to get dry, and having used this for almost two weeks it really has helped the dryness and my hair looks shiny. My hair is thinning and long with a wavy texture. It is advertised as adding moisture, body and shine and works for straight, wavy curly and ethnic hair. The product is advertised to repair damage, renew elasticity and reduce chemical stress of dry and extremely damaged hair. I have to say that it does exactly what it's advertised to do. I will continue to use this product as my regular "shampoo."
Some people have said they find this product line to be a bit expensive, but you can find it on Amazon, Wenhaircare.com and QVC. I know QVC has some good deals every once in a while and sometimes they even have easy payment plans available. I would highly recommend this product and love what it has done for my hair. If you get the chance to try products from this line I would say go for it, you won't be disappointed.
