Question
smell of fig?good for dry ends?
I am a dedicated wen user but have always hesitated with trying fig. Mostly use cucumber aloe. I've heard the smell of fig is horrible! I've waited for Sephora to carry this forever! What is the best way to describe the smell? Also is it good for super dry ends?

I think this is a personal preference, the fig is a bit on the sweeter side and I actually love the smell of it. I don't know what I would compare it to except to say .. well a sweet fig certainly nothing like the smell of the bitter Korres fig which I don't care for. As for the split ends, this one will help slightly more than the others because it is more moisturizing.

I love the scent. It doesn't really linger though. I'd liken it to pomegranate. I don't smell it after washing- I absolutely notice it in the shower, but by the time I've blow dried I don't notice it at all, even when I swing my hair around. My daughter hasn't commented on it since I started using it, which means she doesn't notice it- because she's a 6 year old who comments on everything!!

It does not have the best smell. I wouldn't describe it as horrible. I use it because I was told me hair is too thick for the other types except almond mint. But I would not recommend fig if you want a great smelling product.

I have been using Fig for the past 3-4 years and the smell is wonderful. I use all the FIG products from the Mask, Balm, leave-in conditioner and the replenish treatment mist. It does not smell like figs. Maybe a little citrus and a clean smell. It is kind of hard to describe but not figs for sure.

I will admit that the first time I smelled it from the bottle it didn't really wow me. I didn't think it was horrible. However, when I actually used it for the first time, it changed my mind. It doesn't seem as strong when you use vs in the bottle. It's kind of earthy, it reminds me a bit of walking through a wooded area in a botanical garden with just a slight floral fragrance.

I use Fig and I can tell you that it is great for dry hair and ends! After my first use I could tell a noticeable difference in the way my hair felt...a difference in a very good way!! It was different because my hair was moisturized for the first time in ages.

I would highly recommend trying it!! If it turns out you don't like the scent, you can always try mixing it with your Cucumber Aloe; it sounds weird but it might actually turn okay (I received a sample set as a gift with 5 of the fragrances and mixed them all together - it turned out pretty good).

Hope this helps!

the smell isnt that great, but I like it. Kinda smells like cough syrup lol. Also since you have really dry ends you can use your cucumber aloe on your roots and just use the fig on your ends.

I am sorry that you heard the fig smells bad. I love it and so do my kids. It is very sweet, but it is also a little "earthy" which may be why some don't like it.
I feel it is the most conditioning of his whole line. If you use the cucumber, the fig may seem really rich at first so I would say use it once or twice a week instead of every day.

Yes, it is safe for your hair and I'd say the Fig is the one that works best with ethnic hair.

Here is also a response directly from Chaz Dean's FAQ.

You really can't go wrong no matter which one you try. They are all designed to be used with colored or natural hair, and we like to say that all hair types will benefit from all of the Cleansing Conditioners. That said, the different formulas were developed for different reasons:

Sweet Almond Mint: The original formula. This is the one you get if you don't know where to start. It is a universal formula that will benefit all hair types from the finest, most brittle hair, to the thickest, curliest hair types.

Tea Tree: Designed originally for thicker hair, it will hydrate even the coarsest hair types. However, the benefits of Tea Tree are also great for thinning hair and scalp issues like redness or flakiness.

Fig: Think moisture, this is our most hydrating formulation. Great for thick, curly hair as well as dry, dehydrated, over-processed hair.

Cucumber Aloe: Our lightest weight formula. Cucumber Aloe is great for fine hair as well as those with oily scalps.

Lavender: Our volumizing Cleansing Conditioner. Lavender offers hydration without weighing the hair down. If you need volume and body, this is the one for you.

Pomegranate: The newest edition to the line, Pomegranate is universal for all hair types. Unlike the others, Pomegranate uses soy protein instead of wheat, so if you have a wheat allergy this one is perfect for you.

I have 4b/c hair type. This product was not compatible with my hair at all. It caused quite a bit of shedding - waaay more than normal. I switched back to my normal routine after one use. My hair routine consists strictly of using Shea Moisture products. If your hair is sensitive to protein (Wen contains hydrolyzed wheat protein), I wouldn't not recommend it.

The Sephora sales person is incorrect. There are actually specific purposes for each product and you can mix and match to get desired results; the Sweet Almond Mint is the most universal one. For the hair you described the Fig would be the most appropriate because it is the most moisturizing.

I hate to say it but the sales girl was incorrect: there is a difference. Visit the Wen website for a full listing of their products and the differences between them. I have similar hair to yours and Fig works the best - it's the most conditioning and nourishing and best for chemically treated hair. Next to that would be Pomegranate.

The differences go beyond scent.
Fig Cleansing Conditioner has a rich, dense consistency and works exceptionally well to moisturize, hydrate and replenish dry, heat-damaged, color-treated, or dehydrated hair, it their most moisturizing formulation. Fig is universal and can be used on all hair types, but is ideal on thick, coarse, wavy and curly hair. The Fig is for dry damage, color or chemically processed hair.

Sweet Almond Mint benefits all hair types with the perfect balance of nourishing oils and extracts. Sweet Almond Mint is the perfect Cleansing Conditioner for those new to WEN® or unsure where to begin. Providing only as much moisture as your hair needs, Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner is light enough for baby fine hair, yet hydrating enough for even the thickest hair

Cucumber Aloe Cleansing Conditioner is perfect for fine hair. Its natural, astringent and antioxidant properties effectively cleanse while helping diminish excess oil in the scalp and rehydrate dry hair.

Ok look. I'm cheap. I will splurge on certain beauty products (foundation, lipstick) but even if I had the disposable income to afford buying some products that have a lot of hype I have to ask myself are they really better or is it great marketing? If anyone has tried the Hair One cleansing conditioners from Sallys Beauty and can convince me how Wen is that much better and therefore worth the $$, I would like to hear your review.

Hair One gave me an allergic reaction, and I love Wen, but certain Wen formulas do the same for me too. All I can say is Hair One is cheap. Go get a bottle and test it for a week or two and see if you even like it. Then come to Sephora and get a bottle of Wen. Try that for a week, and if you don't like it they have an excellent return policy. This is one of those decisions best made after personal experience.

I have tried ALL of the competitions versions of Wen and all I have gotten is a greasier mess. That said, Wen is for people who are willing to invest in their hair's health. I have shoulder-length thick Mexican-girl hair. I NEED Wen. Someone without the complicated hair style and texture could probably get away with just washing her hair with over the counter shampoo.
But my hair feels like silk 24/7...shines, puts up with heat and humidity, and I always get asked about what I use (by other jealous girls!) :)
So yes, it is worth it!
