Did you read my previous review? WEN: Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean. I’m very excited to show you that I received the whole WEN® Healthy Hair Care System to review. Everything is cruelty free. Their slogan: “Friends Don’t Let Friends Use Shampoo!” WEN can be purchased at QVC.
Reminder from my last post, or for those who have never tried WEN:
Due to the fact that there is no sodium laurel sulfate, or other damaging detergents, the WEN Conditioners will not lather; they create foam when mixed with water. I know that I was guilty of believing this in the past: if a shampoo has a lot of lather, it’s doing a great job! Not true. The amount of suds, or lather will not make for shinier, healthier hair. It’s the sodium laurel sulfate present in a shampoo that makes it lather!
Both scents/fragrances that I have now tested are just amazing. They really smell very natural, and I can’t imagine that anyone wouldn’t really love both of the scents.

5. Saw-Cut Shower Comb
Why I love the WEN Saw-Cut Comb!:
I’m not writing about some a shoddy plastic comb, readers! This is a hand-finished, saw-cut comb. What’s so special about that? It’s “teeth” are designed so there is no damage to either your hair or your scalp when you’re using it. Brilliant! Further, this was designed specifically for use with the WEN Cleansing Conditioner to help make sure that you’ve evenly distributed the product. At the end of your shower, the wide-tooth side can be used to help rinse the WEN from your hair. The fine-tooth side is incredibly relaxing to run through my hair—wonderful scalp massage.
Re-Moist Intensive Hair Treatment
I used the saw-cut shower comb to make sure the product was evenly applied throughout my hair. I left it on for the (advised minimum) of thirty minutes, and then rinsed. This is one of those products that I am able to write: I know it worked immediately after following the treatment directions. How? I could see and feel a difference.
Why didn’t I leave it on longer?
Because on the day I tested this, it was chilly! I had to step outside the shower to sit down (no bench in the shower) and, the weather is not exactly balmy yet: I live in the Northeast (USA). That’s the only downside (and I really had to think about something that you readers might have an objection about).
Once again, the smell is great, and this will last for a long time. WEN suggests that you use it “once every 6 weeks, before and after any chemical treatment or when hair has been stressed.”
Easy to use, and not a lot of product is needed–directions will depend on your hair length and texture. This product was successful as advertised, in that whether I let my hair dry naturally or I used my blow dryer, it looked great and smelled fantastic!
All that’s needed to do is smooth the balm approximately six to eight times to the palms of your hands (approximately 6-8 times).
Tips from WEN:
Do not abrasively dry your head with a towel as this will stress the hair and cause it to frizz.
You can cleanse daily but when used properly you should only have to cleanse every 2-3 days. The 16 oz size should last you between 4-6 weeks.
Sleep on it! Apply WEN Cleansing Conditioner to wet hair before bed as a hydrating overnight treatment. Cover hair with a shower cap. In your morning shower rinse well, and you’ll begin the day with shiny, silky hair!
Try to avoid using heated styling tools, like flat irons and curling irons. They can dry out, damage, and burn your hair causing breakage.
To help avoid breakage and to keep hair from burning always keep your blow dryer moving – never holding it on one spot – and use the concentrator nozzle that comes with your blow dryer.
Avoid metal and aluminum-based brushes when blow-drying as they get very hot and can singe hair or cause breakage.
If your hair is oily or fine try the Cucumber Aloe or Lavender formulas. They won’t weigh your hair down and with continual use it will add more volume and body.
WEN isn’t like an ordinary shampoo so you want to use more of it, not less. You can never use too much! The more you use, the better the results.
