Product Review: WEN Cleansing Conditioner

I’m not usually a sucker for infomercials, but I’ve been wanting to try the WEN hair care products for a while now. A couple months ago, I finally broke down and gave it a try.

I have to say, while the product wasn’t a complete failure, I don’t think it lived up to its high expectations. The purpose of the WEN Cleansing Conditioner is to wash your hair without the use of harsh chemicals and sulfates. I loved this idea because I hate that I have to wash my hair every single day because it gets so oily. I’ve been wanting to try a more gentle product. Sadly though this just wasn’t it.

One major negative for me is the price. Depending on where you buy it, you can expect to pay around $30 for a bottle. With that said, according to the directions, I should be using between 20-30 pumps to clean long/thick hair. I’m no haircare expert, but that seems a little ridiculous. If I used that much shampoo, I’d run out of it in a week. And at $30 a bottle, that’s way more than I’d ever want to spend on shampoo.

After using it to cleanse my hair, I found that half-way through the day, it was a greasy mess. I know the sulfates and other chemicals are harsh, but I guess with my hair being so oily, it’s necessary. For someone with really dry hair, this might do the trick.

I ended up sticking with my regular shampoo and using the WEN as a conditioner only. It worked well and I did notice a difference between the softness and look of my hair. And I only used a couple of pumps so it lasted a while.

So the verdict – as a shampoo, WEN didn’t impress me, but as a conditioner I thought it worked well. Would I spend $30 on it again though? That I’m not so sure.

Have you tried the WEN products? I’d love to hear what you thought about it!

    Hey Jenny!

    I finally got my email to open so i could read this. I was wondering about this Wen product. I wanted to get some myself, cause i’m a sucker for infomercials. The cost is what prevented me from trying it and the size of the bottle was small. Thanks for testing and blog about it. Keep up the fantastic work!
    Love ya, Michelle

      Thanks, Michelle! I agree that the cost is too high…while it wasn’t a total failure, I think you could pay less and find a product that works better! Love you too! ๐Ÿ™‚
