I thought about buying it at one time and did a quick google search on it.  There are a number of sites dedicated to hating it and saying that it made their hair fall out or extremely brittle.  I just didn’t think it was worth the risk.

I have used Wen for 6 months straight last year. I did see a difference in my hair with it not being as frizzy after a couple of weeks. The only thing I did not like about it was it made my hair oily on top. I did a search with other users that had the same problem and the solution that helped me was staying under the water longer when washing it out. You need to spend an extra 10 to 15 mins washing it out of your hair than you would normal shampoo or conditioner. But if you really want to try it go to Sally’s or a hair product store and buy Hair One. It has the exact same ingredients as Wen for half the cost. I think it’s like 10 dollars a bottle. I started using that instead of Wen and I like it just as good.

I never used wen but I’ve been using hair one for about 2 years now. I love it. I would recommend it to anyone.

My sister started using it about 6 months ago and LOVES it. I tried it once and felt oily after, but I think since it’s not “soap” like most other things are, you have to go through a phase where your natural oils replenish. We also have slightly different hair. We both have thin hair, but I am prone to get oily. I can’t go a day without washing my hair, it’s a bad scene. She has dyed blonde hair and has a lot less of it than I do. I have never dyed mine. I imagine your success will depend on your hair type. Good luck. 🙂

I watched a video review on it and the girl in video said she liked it but it was way more expensive than other products because of the amount they tell you to use each shampoo.

In comarison, I get a keratin treatment every 6 months and use sulfate free shampoo, and I think that works wonders on my thick, curly, frizzy hair!

I have oily hair and at first tried the sweet almond mint and felt it weighed my hair down. But then I decided to give some of the other formulations a shot and found that I really like the soy-based products which include pomegranate and all the seasonal scents (I get mine off of qvc). I know that the fig is for very dry brittle hair and the lavender is suppose to add volume. I do like my wen but it is costly and I have very long hair so I tend to use a lot when showering. I love that my hair is less frizzy, shinier and that I can literally just let my hair air dry and it will look fine (not fabulous but definitely better than with other shampoos). It does take a minute to get used to because it has to be used differently then other shampoos because it does not lather.

I’ve used it for about a year and I love it. I am lucKy. I am African American therefore, I don;t have to wash my hair as frequently so the cost isn’t too much. If I had a different kind of hair, I wouldn’t be using it.

I wasn’t impressed by what I tried. My mom has totally different hair (my hair is fine and straight, hers is shorter than mine and very thick & wavy) and also wasn’t impressed. I’ll stick to my Abba and Bumble & bumble (also just got the new Aveda Invati, so we’ll see how that goes). I just felt like Wen was… just okay. And for what I paid I want to at least like it.

I have never used it but I think the basics of it are the same as the no poo thing (no shampoo).  At first your hair will be oily, but with time, some people will have better hair afterward.  I don’t know if I ever could since I work out too much and my hair gets gross.

I haven’t used Wen but I did start using L’Oreal Evercreme, which is a similar idea. I LOVE it. It cleanses without stripping my hair and I don’t need a separate conditioner so it saves time in the shower (I can’t imagine rinsing my hair out for 10-15 minutes, that seems insane to me).
