After seeing how amazing my friend's hair felt and looked she finally convinced me to try Wen's cleansing conditioner. After much hesitation over the price I finally took the plunge. Click down below to see what I think of this "miracle" product!


What it promises:

WEN Seasonal Cleansing Conditioners are universal formulations designed for all hair types, lengths,and textures. Designed to keep your hair healthy and manageable, they were created to help WEN customers enjoy all benefits of Cleansing Conditioner along with the signature scents of each season

What I found:

Lets do a quick review of the condition of my hair before wen for those who don't know about it. I used to have blood red hair (dyed of course) I bleached the life out of it turning it a super light blonde. My hair is fine, and super damaged, I have split-end problems. My hair is brittle and needs to be babied to an extreme. I use deep conditioners and protein treatments to help it stay manageable.

My hair pre-wen

I've been stuck with semi-short hair for over a year since I changed my hair color to blonde. I was always using argan oil, and protein treatments yet my hair was so dry from the ears down. I was pulling at straws on what I could use next. That's when my friend Ashley suggested to me to try wen. 



I was unsure at first because of the price, but QVC had Chaz Dean the creator on running a special so I figured I'd give it a try. The nice thing about QVC when I ordered the Fall Apple cleansing conditioner in the 32oz that I was able to pay for it in two monthly payments. 

Wen's Fall Apple Cleansing conditioner smells amazing!! I love the apple-y warm scent. My boyfriend keeps telling me it smells like pretzels but I don't smell that.


How I use it: I put 3 pumps on the top potion of my hair close to the scalp , I then do 3 pumps for the bottom of my hair close to the scalp. I use 2 pumps for the rest of my hair not close to the scalp. I use a total of 8 pumps for my entire head.  After I apply the wen to my hair I leave it on for the rest of my shower, washing it out at the very end. I usually cleanse my hair once most of the time. On the bottle it suggests two washes, but as long as my hair isn't that dirty I only do one cleanse.

If I do two cleanses I use 8 pumps the first time wash it out right away and 6 pumps the second time. I leave the second cleanse in until the very end of the shower. 

How it performs:  Fall Apple makes my scalp tingle, but not in a bad way.  My hair feels just as clean as if I washed it with a shampoo with sulfates in it. Yet even though it feels clean it is also moisturized. I don't use regular conditioners anymore. Nor have I used a protein treatment since I started using wen.

In a few words how I feel about Wen cleansing conditioners is that I love them! My hair has never felt this great! It's so soft, and shiny! Oh my is it shiny!! I love it! I now only add oil to my ends verses how I had to use it as a detangler before I used wen.

Here's how Wen cleansing conditioner works on thick, wavy/curly hair:

Ashley's hair is thick wavy/curly hair. She doesn't dye it anymore, but she has a few blonde streaks in it. She was using a sulfate-free shampoo before she started on wen.

The left photo is pre-wen taken during the last week in July 2013, then the photo on the right that was taken December 2013, is with using Wen cleansing conditioner, wen replenishing mist, and wen oil - She has a set.  Ashley prefers to use Wen Fig and Fall Apple cleansing conditioner.

She saids Wen has helped with the frizz, and manageability of her hair. It's so long, thick, and soft since she's been using wen.

How Ashley uses it: Ashley uses 10 pumps for her first cleanse then 6-8 pumps for her second cleanse. She follows up after she washes she puts in either wen oil, or the replenishing mist before she combs her hair.

She has not stopped raving about Wen hair care since she got it. We were just black friday shopping when a woman stopped her telling her how lovely her hair was and asked what she used.

Honestly both Ashley and I can not stop raving about the Wen hair care system. It's amazing how soft, shiny, and manageable our hair is now. I mean just look at the photo below, it's a dim bar picture but just look how our hair shines! I'm in love!
