Questions & Answers for WEN® by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner

Question
will this make my hair greasy?
I have pretty thick and coarse hair thats naturally a bit wavy. Usually I skip a few days between washing my hair, I can usually stretch it to 3 days. I guess you could say that I have Asian hair and its colored red. I need something to preserve my color and keep it healthy, but I've heard on multiple accounts it makes your hair super greasy. As long as I follow the directions and wash the product out thoroughly will I be okay?

I have super fine hair and my hair gets greasy easily. Wen does not make it greasy at all. You must make sure that you take the extra few minutes to completely rinse out the product from your hair.

I have curly color treated hair but mine is more fine. I only wash 2-3 times per week, all other days I just rinse after I go running and then put two pumps of Wen in my hair after I squeeze out the water and wrap a towel around my hair while I do my makeup. Then I use a little mouse in my hair in the summer - in the winter I usually just twist my hair around my fingers to encourage the curls and use a diffuser. Very non fussy and my hair dresser told me of all her clients my hair was in the best condition so we've switched to more copper because my hair was able to take the color better!

No grease here... My hair is coarse & thick, and I have tried many, many things... Wen is amazing. I'm not usually one to rave about such things.... As long as you don't leave too much in, you will not have a problem with any greasiness! You may need more or less each time, sometimes you may use a little as a leave in conditioner and sometimes may not.

Just tried it last night. I have fine, shoulder length, wavy hair. Always frizzes. Woke up this morning to smooth, shiny hair. It's not weighed down like when you use a heavy serum or something. But it's definitely more controlled, it doesn't have the puffy volume I'm used to having. So it's a happy medium between fine and frizzy, and weighed down. Just right. Try and it see what you think!

I have baby fine hair and Wen is amazing with my hair. It works so well with my ultra fine hair. Wen leaves my hair feeling weightless and full of body. My only slight negative would be that you must completely wash the product out of your hair and it takes a bit longer than a normal rinse. I still give it 5 stars.
Just give it one try and you will be hooked!

It's very important to do as the directions says. Pump 4 or 5 times then rub in thoroughly, rinse well then do it again but leave in while you wash...then rinse really well, (I keep a comb in shower) comb while rinsing. you can then use a couple of pump worth to use as conditioner on ends if you want. The first couple of times i was afraid to rinse it completely and ended with my hair a bit greasy so it is important to rinse your hair thoroughly.

Yes, the pump comes with it. It's packed separately in the box so you can decide whether you want to use the pump or the regular cap. I'm totally pro-pump, it gives you absolute control over how much of the product you choose to apply to your hair. Personally I need to use much less of this stuff than the instructions suggest for my hair length. Especially once I figured out exactly how much WEN is the perfect amount for my hair, I was totally grateful for the pump that ensures I can always deliver the optimum amount to my hair.

It will depend how frequently you wash your hair and how much product you actually need. My favorite thing about wen is that I no longer have to wash my hair everyday, it made it much less greasy. I usually wash my hair 3 times a week now, and I used to have to everyday with regular shampoo.

Anyway, I have found (and so have many other people in the reviews) that you really don't have to use as much as it says you do in the directions. That's just kind of ridiculous. If you follow the directions, I doubt it would last very long at all. I have long, curly, hair and usually use 8-10 pumps per wash. (I do find that the rinse and repeat works best, using 4-5 pumps to wash and then rinsing and leaving 3-4 pumps in to soak). It took me almost two months to use the 16 ounce bottle.

Again, it will really depend on the amount of product used and how frequently you wash your hair.

I'm sad to say I had the same thing happen and was SHOCKED. I thought it was a rumor but after a week of use I started noticing my hair was falling out constantly and in the shower.... Man it was just scary! My hair looked great week 1 but then started to look greasy and was falling out, so I tried using a clarifying shampoo one a week. It helped with greasy look but after 3 weeks of using Wen I had to stop in fear of hair thinning and nothing I did stopped the hair loss that seamed to get worse and worse... I was super disappointed and had been really excited and loved the product!!

But was not worth the risk! After 2-3 days of use with another shampoo & conditioner the hair loss stopped and my hair has gone back to normal which only made it more obvious that it was indeed Wen that caused my hair to fall out.
I have 1/2 a bottle left over, so now I use it as shave cream! Haha It works great for shaving but if you have the mint scent be careful using it on bikini area ;) the menthol will burn down there... Not fun.
I think the ladies who spoke of a allergic reaction must be right b/c so many people give it good reviews.... Wish I could be one of them!

So if you notice hair loss try clarify shampoo but if still have hair loss then be sure to discontinue product! I have thick hair so wasn't super effective but if I had thin hair it could have been much worse!

Wen is a great product, however, it does contain silicone in the form of Amodimethicone. Although this type of silicone is supposed to be water soluble, it can cause build up. This build up can lead to clogged hair follicles which can cause the hair to fall out. It is important if you are experiencing hair loss with this product to use a good quality clarifying shampoo once a week or once bi-weekly. This should help remove any buildup on the hair shaft and clear the scalp of any clogging debris. Once this is incorporated into your hair care routine, the hair loss should decrease, however, if you are still experiencing an excessive amount of hair loss, you should discontinue use of the product. Another ingredient in Wen, Menthol, is actually a skin irritant. You may be having a reaction to this ingredient that is resulting in hair loss. One more thing to remember with Wen is that it contains protein. Protein is beneficial to the hair because it fills in the damage of porous weak hair making it harder which makes it stronger, however, some hair types are protein sensitive. If you are protein sensitive or your hair has a protein overload, it can cause the hair to harden to the point that it is breaking easily ( not from the root) making it appear that you are losing a lot of hair. Finding the right balance for your hair can be difficult. I believe that if you add a clarifying shampoo and hydrating conditioner (That doesn’t contain any proteins) to your routine with your Wen, you should get better results and less hair loss. BUT if this does not work, please keep in mind what I wrote earlier about a possible reaction. There is nothing you can do about that but to switch products. Good Luck!

When you normally shampoo your hair you probably do not stimulate your scalp enough to get out all of the hair that typically falls out. However, after about a week or 2 of use it should be reduced. We generally have a hair loss rate of 100 strands per day and all piled up can look like a lot more than there really is. Unless it is falling out by handfulls, I would try to stick with it because you should notice a differnce in your hair. Think of the inital few first washes as a "purge" kind of like the clarisonic. When you first start to use it you really break out, then your skin becomes clear and glowing in a couple of weeks.

When you comb through in the shower it should be a small amount to remove all the dead split ends, hair that would normally come out throughout the day. If you really feel that it is an excessive amount, i would stop using it. I have heard that some women find they are having a reaction to using it and have hair loss. if thats the case i wouldn't recommend using it.

I, too, have an oily scalp with dry ends. I HAVE to cleanse my hair EVERY day, but I've been using WEN for 15 months. Follow the directions precisely for your hair length. If you don't use enough of the cleansing conditioner and don't leave it in long enough, then you may not get the results you want (i.e. you'll end up with that weighed down look). I know it seems counterproductive to use a cleansing conditioner on an oily scalp, but this works quite nicely for me.

It wouldnt make your hair more oily at all. However i use to be able to go two days without washing before my hair /scalp got oily now i have to use it everyday. But, it depends on which smell you buy. The sweet mint, lavender allow me to go two days without. The pumpkin was kinda heavy. Its really a great product. I have never used a shampoo that made my hair, shiny , healthy, less breakable and actually make it grow faster. I love it. You should defiantly try.

My hair is oily if I wash it every day with regular shampoo. The less you wash your hair, the less oily it will become eventually- you just gotta get thru the rough period of yuckiness. That being said, I can imagine that this product would be VERY good for getting thru that period because you can wash every day for a little bit without stripping your hair. Regular shampooing every day is part of what makes your hair oily because your body thinks it needs to produce more oil to make up for the lack of oil. Then eventually start spacing out the washes to every other day/every couple days/etc. Your hair will thank you.

It will work for you. You have to use it right.
1. Really rinse your hair. Don't just wet it as you would before shampooing. Rinse particularly at the roots.
2. Apply. Be sure every inch and strand is fully saturated. More is better. Dont skimp. I section my hair about six root sections and three for my ends. Three pumps each section. Ive got fine hair strands, lots of them, down to my mid to lower back.
3. When applying really work it into the hair. Rubbing as you would when shampooing.
4. Clip it up the remainder of your shaower/bath. Keep it clipped up at least three to five minutes.
5. Unclip hair after five mins.
6. Get handfuls of water and work them into the product on the hair. Work it in in rubbing motions as you would with shampoo. Really work the water in. You will notice the product getting thinner and thinner. Do this for s couple of minutes.
7. Rinse. Rinse fully clean. When using shampoo and conditioner Id leave a film of conditioner in my hair. Do not do that with this product. Rinse it out fully.
8. Leave in. Ive got super long thick hair, fine strands, oily-ish scalp. I cleanse every two days. I use one pump as a leave in, only on my ends. I use it before Im out of the shower on sopping wet hair.
Good luck! Hope you love it. If you still dont like it after my suggestions there is an instructional DVD...but it basically says what I told you. I cannot stress how important it is to use enough, really work it into your hair, and to rinse it fully clean.

It helps with my frizz and seems to help my style stay better. Make sure you use enough product and rinse (probably longer than you think you need to). I was hesitant to try it too, because of my hair type and its oily nature. The condition of my hair is better and I get compliments on it like never before.

You don't need a shampoo.

WEN is made to cleanse your hair (like shampoo) and condition it (like conditioner). Think of it as a really good version of a shampoo-and-conditioner-in-one mass market product.

This "Cleansing Conditioner" is your shampoo and conditioner all in one. I know it sounds weird but it works. You should not be using a shampoo in addition to this product.

I have short, fine, curly, color treated hair and Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner works wonderfully on my hair. Because my hair is short, I do not use as much product as recommended. I have been using WEN for nearly a year now and I am thrilled with the product. I wash my hair every day. Note also that with color-treated hair (red) my color lasts longer. I do not use any other cleansing or conditioning product along with the WEN. Just WEN!

The whole point of using a conditioning wash is to stop using a shampoo, as they strip the hair. Used correctly, a conditioning wash routine will leave your hair clean, soft, and frizz free without the need for shampoo. Unfortunately, Wen did not work well for me. You might check naturallycurly.com to learn more about co washing systems and whether one is right for you before you buy this product.

Question
short hair
I'm 84, short very dry grey hair, some natural wave , slightly thinning in some spots, use gel to set with my fingers - seldom use dryer. medium fine, texturized on top for hight.

Will this Wen product soften too much to hold shape? Because my hair is very dry, I only shampoo twice a week. Is there anything else I need to know.

I have quite a bit of grey hair (never colored my hair), and I found that the Wen made my grey/white hairs really shine and pop. Might work great for you! You mentioned thinning, however, so I would advise being gentle when working the product through your scalp to prevent unneccesary loss.

It is great with all hair, I would try the almond one first and if you feel it's too oily, then try the lavender. If it's not helping you hair because it's thinker, use the pomegrante one. I don't know about the other ones, I haven't tried.

I think you might love this product. I have medium-length, fine, straight, chemically-treated, heavy hair and worried it would be too heavy for me, but I learned the great thing about Wen is that you control the amount of moisture you want. I washed all of the product out and my hair was full of body (I do have to blow dry my hair to get it to do anything other than hang limp as a wet dishrag. I have yet to find a "wonder" product that totally alleviate this). I wash my hair every other day and noticed that when I didn't rinse as well, my hair would be a little heavy on the 2nd day. It wasn't enough of an issue to make me stop using the product. Hope this helps!

this product will work great for your hair type I imagine. Especially if you only wash ever so often.

I don't think it would be too much, you may have to use it a couple times to figure out what amount works for you, but I think you'll be thrilled with how soft and manageable your hair is!

I got my mom (67) to use it, and she thinks her hair is even easier to style. Before, she felt like her gel/sprak made her hair feel like it was gluey. Now with Wen, she said she needs less product and can get the look she wants more easily. Especially if you don't wash that often, I think Wen could be a really good idea for you. You can also try out the treatment mist between washes to refresh it a bit. I read that a lot of people like that. I wash every day, so I haven't tried myself.

I think this product will make your hair softer and may hold your style in a way you are not used to. Styling products will help but with the dry hair, as referenced, I would try it. It has helped tame my locks.

Is this product thoroughly cleaning the hair after a tough workout?
I am an avid runner, but I am concerned this product will not completely clean my hair after sweating for 2 hours. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I am a triathlete so I sympathize with your concern. I do find a traditional wash about every week serves me well...but then again, I am in the pool quite often so I benefit from the intense conditioning properties.

it probably will not clean your hair well. I washed with wen after a 2 hour workout, and I need to wash it (normally) again!

I hike/walk/ride bike, one of the three every day. I go long distances. 5-10 miles hiking, same walking, 15-20 biking. I wash every other day, every day if hiking two days in a row to check for ticks. This gets my hair clean. You just have to use it properly. I suggest checking out my review on here, by just clicking on my sephora online nickname, or check out the intructional DVD. Can find the DVD on the quality value c-something channel or website, and likely the wen website. It'll get you clean though, if used right. When people say their hair is greasy, its cause they dont use it right. I know cause I did the exact same thing. Hated this stuff at first, but its cause I didnt use it right.

You can totally use this after working out hard. I am currently obsessed with P90X and do 2 workouts a day. I wash my hair after my last workout and blow it dry and wake up with amazing hair! The trick is to follow directions and use enough. Scrub into the scalp and then the ends and leave it on for 5 minutes at least. The great thing is you can wash your hair daily and your hair doesn't get dry or over worked. I've been using it for 2 years and won't ever use reg. shampoo again. If this formula isn't perfect for you try one of the other formulas. Chaz has 6 diff. kinds for all different needs. I switch out the different kinds for the seasons--more moisture, deeper cleaning, etc. Good stuff!
