Wen Winter Cranberry Mint Cleansing Conditioner is a welcome treat today as the snow laying on the floor makes it feel a little like Christmas again!
I recently got my bottle of Wen Winter Cranberry Mint Cleansing Conditioner in the mail and gave it a test drive so here are my thoughts!
Wen Winter Cranberry Mint Cleansing Conditioner is one of four seasonal scents that Wen created and launched on QVC earlier this Fall. It originally became available in a seasonal auto delivery set but is not available in the 16 oz size for $29 at QVC.com exclusively.
I’ve used and loved Wen Cleansing Conditioner for a while now as it eliminates the need for shampoo and acts as a single step to cleanse and conditioner hair in one go. I think people automatically assume it’s some sort of Pert shampoo-like product but technically it is not as it doesn’t lather. This is a SUPER thick, creamy conditioner that acts as a hair mask of sorts. In the AM simply wet your hair as normal and proceed to work three to four (or more depending on the length and thickness of your hair) pumps of Wen Cleansing Conditioner into your hair. I use a comb to work it through all my hair but you can also simply use your hands! Now leave it on for 2-3 minutes (do five)! After simply rinse out and dry as usual.
For me it really refines my wavy hair and keeps frizz at bay. Although, a fair warning, it does tend to build up quickly so be sure to clarify weekly to rinse away any build up.
Winter Cranberry Mint is nice but it does remind me a lot of Almond Mint with a bit more tartness. I think the mint dominates the entire fragrance of the conditioner so that’s why I’m feeling it smells more like the Almond Mint than anything else. The formula does seem quite a good deal thicker than my typical round of Wen Cleansing Conditioner but it does a great job none the less of getting my hair squeaky clean and frizz-free! It adds a nice bit of bounce to my wavy hair and eliminates a good deal of frizz too.
I don’t love it because I wanted it to smell a bit more Cranberry but I like it well enough!
