The Muse recently jumped at the chance to try out a Wen by Chav Dean Healthy Hair Care System. Seriously, I’ve been wanting to indulge in the Wen line for so long, I’ve lost count of the times the lemming has come over me. I do so wonder why I haven’t tried it up until now because I’m positive I’ve had it in my cart a million different times over the last two years.
As you know I’m a Lush girl at heart so about 98% of my hair care, skin care, and the likes are for the most part Lush in nature. One main reason I prefer Lush is the lack of silicons in the hair products which leave my hair lighter and less weighted down with product and build up. But on occasion I can be tempted away from Lush to check out something new…..Today that would be WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner that tempted me away from Lush and has been tempting me away for the past week or so.
Jump ahead for the review.
What is it?
A one stop shop for your hair and scalp that cleanses and conditions your hair in a snap. It basically replaces conditioner, hair treatments, leave-in conditioner, detangler, shampoo, hell even shaving cream!
Who can use it?
Anyone. Oily, dry, curly, straight, whatever your hair woe or type this is for you.
WEN Cleansing Conditioner is a detergent free, gently cleansing and moisturizing treatment that will get your hair clean and deeply conditioned in 5 to 10 minutes. The formula pretty much cleanses and offers a deep conditioning without weighting hair down.
At first glance I was quite scared of the formula as it’s pretty rich and heavy feeling. But once used and I’m convinced this is my hair god savior. It made my hair incredibly smooth, frizz free, soft, silky, and beautiful looking plus I was smelling all kinds of beautiful too. One sniff is first love as it’s a mix of sweet mint and the bitter sweet cherry scent of crushed almonds.
It’s fairly easy to use and unique as well since it pretty much acts as both a shampoo and a conditioner. Basically the instructions suggest using a heap of it…like 10-20 pumps or more…but I really don’t think you need THAT much. Honestly, if you use that much you’ll need a bottle a day in the shower. I use about 5 pumps and work it into wet hair..a fine tooth comb is included with the kit I got so I basically apply and sweep through with the comb. After that an extra splash of water helps to work the product up, I do this with my hands, just wet ‘em and scoop a small amount of water onto my hair. Now I wait, 5 to 10 minutes or so. Basically I’ll do the rest of my shower bits while it’s working in my hair or you. After I rinse and I’m good to go.
You can follow up with any of the other items included in the kit which I’ll review for you later this week or you can follow up by placing a small amount of the cleansing conditioner in your hair as a leave in conditioner.
The end result is pretty incredible. Hair is smoother, silky, soft, and just feels clean and beautiful. It’s like you just had your hair done at a salon! The beauty of the product is although it’s rich and heavy in texture it doesn’t weight down hair in the least and so far I’ve experience absolutely no build up.
After I’m done with this I’ll be purchasing the large 16 oz from QVC as it comes in various formulas for different hair types. You can try the for $29.97 by visiting www.wenhaircare.com plus you get the added benefit of trying out a total of four items from WEN when you purchase the set.
Overall, totally loving this one. Quite an interesting product that will become a staple for sure.
