WEN Hair Conditioning Review
One of my late nights that I was up watching infomercials, WEN’s came on with the beautiful Alyssa Milano spokeswoman doing her thing and hyping how wonderful the WEN Cleansing Conditioning.
I was a sucker and bought into it. It was late and I’ve always wanted to try it out. I took the plunge and got my credit card out and bought it. It doesn’t help that they also add all types of extras to lore you in.
For this posting I will only talk about the WEN Cleansing Conditioning hair product.
They say to use it as so
CLEANSING YOUR HAIR IN 3 EASY STEPS:
Step 1:Rinse hair thoroughly. Apply WEN® into your palms and rub together. Use 10-16 pumps for short hair, 16-24 for medium length hair and 24-32 pumps for long hair. If your hair is longer/thicker you may need to increase the amount of pumps.
Step 2:Apply to scalp and hair, adding a splash of water to evenly distribute. WEN® has no harsh detergents or sodium lauryl sulfate, so it won’t lather. Massage thoroughly into hair and leave on for the remainder of your shower.
Step 3:Rinse thoroughly and completely, massaging scalp and running fingers through to the ends.
ADDITIONAL USAGE TIPS:
Apply 1/2 to 1 pump depending on hair length and texture as a leave-in conditioner to soaking wet hair. For best results, we highly suggest you cleanse, rinse and repeat, using half the recommended pumps for the first cleanse, and the remaining half for the second cleanse. Unlike many ordinary shampoos, you may find you don’t need to cleanse as often.
But in my reality:
Only use as many pumps as you think YOUR hair needs. I have super long hair and I there’s no way I would use the recommended 24-32 pumps. I’m not in the shower to get my forearms a workout. I use a good 4-5 pumps then my hair is saturated with WEN in it.
Make sure before you add WEN in your hair, that your hair is drenching wet. If not, it will be hard to spread this thick conditioning on your hair.
I’ve heard horror stories that WEN has made their hair fall out. Thank God that hasn’t happened to me.
My hair does feel super soft after I get out of the shower and I’m loving the Sweet Almond Mint aroma it has.
The one thing I had to get use to was that it doesn’t have that bubbly lather.
Would I repurchase this?
I doubt it, just because of the cost. It is quite steep for my liking.
I know there are others out there on the market that you can get at supermarkets, department stores that are easily assessable for quite cheaper.
I bought this because I’m constantly dying my hair and wanted to have my color last longer.
