Wink The hype over WEN.

I've been seeing post about this product and I wanted to know what was so great about it. This isn't the first time I have heard of the product. I've seen the commercials. I just wanted to know, what difference did you feel? What products and scents do you like? Oh and are you natural or relaxed? This would be greatly appreciated!

Default Re: The hype over WEN.

What I like about WEN for my hair is how it aids my hair to perform. It cleanses my scalp well by removing dirt and any build-up that I may have. I've never used it and felt like my hair wasn't thoroughly cleansed. It cleanses without stripping my strands. It conditions while cleansing. It helps me to detangle my hair with ease. It doesn't lather but gets mushy enough to mimic sudsy feel, which I like. Its scent is quite pleasing to me and as far as I'm concerned, the ingredients are good. I like what's in it. After use, my hair is moisturized and shiny clean. It is a product that has many of the features that I look for all contained into one. I also love the consistency and it can handle my hair. That's the WEN hype for me.

I remember making a post about WEN in naturallycurly back in 2003 and NO ONE responded . This was around the time when fashion & beauty magazines like Lucky started writing little blurbs on it, but it was barely advertised anywhere.

I figured it would be a hot topic since everyone was on the "no-poo" wagon back then.

Adding to what kellistarr and Je Ne Sais Quoi said, it's also a multi tasker. I use it to co-wash, DC and as a leave in. I added the Ginger Pumpkin to Almond Re-moist and the end result was heavenly. Right now, the Ginger Pumpkin is my fav, followed by Fig & Pomegrante.

I see that it has cones in it? Are the cones water soluble? When and what do you guys use to clarify?

The writing on the bottle is really small. I think the ingredents are listed on QVC, you can check and see.

Default Re: The hype over WEN.

I'm starting to believe that WEN is saving my hair. I'm relaxed 4b. I tried it a few years ago and liked it but didn't really commit to it, mainly because of the price. After deciding this year to switch from a super to a mild relaxer to give my hair some reprieve, I decided to try WEN again.

LAWD...

Wen has been the only thing that makes my new growth manageable, to the point I can't even tell how many weeks post relaxer I am (that is until I pull my hair in a ponytail and my roots don't cooperate). My hair is softer, more manageable, and I see less shedding. It's got me sold to the point where I threw out/gave away 90% of my hair products and committed fully to Wen conditioners, styling cream and oils. I'm giving myself a year on WEN only to see really how much healthier my hair will be. So far, I'm in love!

I can't live without my WEN. It really does it all. My hair has never been this long or healthy before in my life!

I am 62 weeks post right now and I've made it this far with no weaves, extensions, etc...WEN plays a big role in keeping my NG manageable. It truly is a wonderful product.

Wow, that's an awesome testimony! I wish they would keep the Ginger Pumpkin (sorry Je Ne Sais Quoi ) as a permanent conditioner.

@Lucky's Mom - Olive oil one was ok. Sweet Almond Mint tangled my hair. I am willing to give another WEN a try. If it doesn't work then, 3 strikes and it's out.

I tried Sweet Almond and Pomegranate. Neither was moisturizing enough, but they did the trick as far as cleansing my hair and not drying it out. My hair is relaxed.

I would be willing to give it another go. Apparently Fig is very moisturizing and so is Ginger Pumpkin. I used up all of the Pomegranate, but it had a cough syrupy smell. Olive Oil hair one was a dream...can't remember why I stopped using it. PJism I guess!

one of my co-workers (straight haired white woman) is using wen...she said the lavender kind. she was going around having all of us smell her hair on our lunch break today. hahahahaha. it did actually smell good, to be honest...however weird that was. she was saying she likes it and said it seemed to help retain the moisture in her hair. she also said she probably wont be able to buy it again because of the price.

i havent tried it and dont intend to.
