I’m always looking for new and unique products, so I decided to give Wen Cleansing Conditioner a try. I paid$29.95 for a 30 day supply of sweet almond mint cleanser and some other goodies: a texture stick, moisture hair mask and a styling cream.

Description of Wen Cleansing Conditioner:

  • No lather.
  • They claim that it’s all in one: shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner.
  • They don’t use the ”harsh ingredients that may be found in ordinary shampoos—it is designed so it won’t strip your hair and scalp of their natural oils. Your hair is left with sheen, moisture, manageability and better color retention.”

My observations:

  • Smells good.
  • Surprisingly, I was okay with the ‘no lather’ concept. I felt like I was applying conditioner… hair felt soft and ‘slippery.’
  • The cleanser didn’t make my hair feel squeakly clean even after rinsing, but my hair looked and felt clean when it was dried.
  • Hair felt soft after it was dry, but there was no “wow” moment.
  • I had to use A LOT of the product to sufficiently cover my hair and scalp as directed. I have layered hair almost down to my waist. The informercial recommended between 10-15 pumps. I had to use about 30+ pumps for my hair.

Conclusion:

Would I continue to use this product? My answer is no.

  • While I liked how soft my hair felt in the shower… I didn’t notice a huge difference out of the shower once my hair was dried.
  • I had to use A LOT of the product to saturate my hair with the product. I was shocked when I was only able to get 6 uses before I ran out.  At $29 a bottle and only 6 uses, that’s about $5 per use. “30 day supply” must’ve been for people with really really short hair.

Hope this is helpful!~
