WEN by Chaz is versatile line of products created by celebrity stylist, Chaz Dean. The line offers almond mint cleansers in lieu of harsh sulfates. The WEN Cleansing Conditioner claims the triple-whammy benefit of cleansing, conditioning, and styling all in one go. My fine hair craves moisture, bounce, and shine—so I tested the Fig version, which purports these benefits. http://chazdean.com/store.aspx
On day 1, I noticed the instructions recommended a minimum use of ten pumps of product! I worried about that entire product bogging my hair down. But while I worked the product into my hair, it weirdly felt as if I had more hair. I also noticed less strands coming out during the rinse process.
Roots were already greasy the next morning! Ugh. Using the product that night, I again loved voluminous shine of my hair after it was blow-dried.
Hair was less oily on day 3. I spent extra time rinsing out the product in case leftover residue was causing extra oiliness. My hair lost a bit of curl this day, but was shiny and bouncy overall.
No time to shower on day 4! I styled my hair at work. After an abundance of dry shampoo and curling, my hair was still an oily mess. Couldn’t wait to use the product that night!
Day 5 was morning-to-night great hair. Only complaint: my curls went a bit flat. However, WEN made my hair super soft and manageable, so the less –than-springy curls weren’t a deal-breaker.
The final day I showered in the morning per usual. After my morning styling, I noticed again that my curls went flat a bit earlier than normal, but otherwise my hair looked great. For more info, visit Wen.com.
