As an African American, I constantly try different shampoos and conditioners to find the best one for my hair and my two daughters. We all have different hair textures. My 18 yr. old has loose waves and is very thick and coarse. My 14 yr. old has very thin, fine hair with a tighter wave. My hair is in between texture and thick. A year ago I purchased the Sweet Almond Mint to try. I don't know if I didn't use it properly - not using enough pumps - but I wasn't thrilled with the product. About 5 months later, a co-worker who has used WEN for over 3 years told me that I HAD to try it again and try a different scent. She gave me a bottle of her Fig to use. Now by this time, my daughters had both decided they no longer wanted a relaxer in their hair so there was approximately 6 months of new growth. When I used it this time, it was like magic! The awful first few months of new growth, after using the WEN the first time again, were silky smooth. It was as if I relaxed their hair again but did not. The poofiness was gone, and the frizz. I ordered more such as the Gardenia, Mango, and Pomegranate and loved all of these! Once I saw what it did for their hair, I stopped relaxing mine. The last time I relaxed mine was in May of 2012. In about Sept., Later, I ran out of the WEN and put off purchasing more because I was too lazy. I went back to using an expensive brand that I had left over from before. My youngest complained that she didn't know what was wrong with her hair. It was always frizzy. My hair maintained a permanent poofiness where the new growth was and started becoming frizzy again. I thought maybe it was the time of year since Los Angeles can get foggy in the fall. In October, I finally purchased more WEN - actually 6 bottles of it giving my girls their favorite scents and mailing one of them to my mother in Seattle. Immediately after using it again, my hair looked fabulous. My youngest no longer complains. I am 53 yrs. old and have relaxed my hair since I was 13 except for when I was pregnant. I am so glad that I stopped the chemicals that were damaging and breaking off our hair. WEN is the ONLY reason we are able to do this. WEN is the only product that I will use the rest of my life. My oldest goes off to college next fall and even though she will wear her hair "wash and go", she said she must have WEN with her. Curls are more defined, hair isn't all over her head because of the poofiness. I am so glad that my co-worker encouraged me to use it again. It does take getting use to how it doesn't lather but soon you become used to that and the silkiness that you feel when you wash your hair. I am SOLD! By the way, my oldest and I used 15 pumps the first time and 10 the next. Our hair is past our shoulders. The more we use WEN the less we needed each time we wash. Now we have found a happy medium. My youngest, with the very thin, fine hair to her shoulders, uses 10 pumps each time.
