WEN® Cleansing Conditioner is a revolutionary new concept in hair care. A 5-in-1 formula, this one product takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. It cleanses hair thoroughly but without lathering and all the harsh ingredients that may be found in ordinary shampoos—it is designed so it won't strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils. Your hair is left with sheen, moisture, manageability and better color retention.
Unlike many ordinary shampoos, WEN® cleansers are made with natural ingredients and contain no sodium laurel sulfate or other damaging detergents. They don't lather; instead, they create smooth foam when mixed with water for shinier, healthier-looking, more manageable results.
A cleansing conditioner that does not lather ... a hard concept for me to get used to. I have been using Wen Cleansing Conditioner in Lavender for the past 3 weeks. While it is kinda weird to be washing my hair with conditioner, I have to admit that this stuff is pretty awesome!
This last year, I have put my tresses through the ringer ... hair extensions, bleaching and coloring, ombre dying ... my poor hair! The last visit to the salon, I cut quite a few inches off my hair to get rid of the dry, brittle ends. I have since been dying only my roots a dark brown color to blend the grow out, but I am over the harsh chemical processing.
To use Wen, you are instructed to dispense 8 to 16 pumps into your hands and massage the conditioner into your hair, combing it through from scalp to ends, and then wrap up hair into a bun for 2 to 5 minutes. For best results, they recommend putting the cleansing conditioner in right as you get in the shower, and rinsing it out as the very last thing before getting out. For extra conditioning, after rinsing your hair clean, you can put a dime-sized amount of Wen throughout the lower portion of your hair while hair is still soaking wet.
In my damaged hair, I use the full 16 pumps. The product is in my hair for the entire time I am in the shower, usually 15 minutes or so. After rinsing, while my hair is still dripping, I use a full pump for the leave-in conditioning.
The results are incredible! Super soft hair, smooth and re-hydrated. The most impressive result ... no need to flat iron!! Since doing the ombre look, I have had to flat-iron my hair every.single.time I shower. A process that takes up time, and adds stress to my locks. Wen has brought so much life back to my hair. It feels healthier, looks shiny and smooth and smells uh-mazing!! I am a big fan of the lavender scent - the aromatherapy it provides in the steam of the shower is so relaxing, and my hubby compliments me on how great my hair smells. I am excited to try the Sweet Almond Mint scent next!
Overall, I am loving Wen Cleansing Conditioner. Retail is $32 for a 30-day supply. Being that this one product is replacing several individual products, the price is worth it. There are several specials and deals online to get you started, and Wen is backed by a 60 day guarantee. You really can't go wrong!
