    Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner

    WEN is the best thing that ever happened to my hair!

    Gotta say this product has been a miracle for my hair. Unfortunately, I was not blessed with good hair. It's generally been fine, thin, straight and flat brown. My 13-yr-old son bought me a starter kit for Christmas 2 years ago (with financing by g'ma, but he paid her back in full! Is that a GREAT son, or what?!) I've used it ever since. Fast forward a month or two...I noticed improvements and was very pleased with it, but I think the final confirmation was when my stylist remarked that my hair felt thicker, fuller and overall healthier. Oh! And I had a lot of new growth coming in. We also noted that it had grown more in 2 months than it had the previous year! She asked if I was taking prenatal vitamins. When I told her the only change I'd made was using WEN, she was shocked and TBH not convinced that WEN was solely responsible for the significant improvement in the condition of my hair. She's been my stylist for 11 yrs, so she knows my hair better than I do & we were friends before she was a stylist, so she's straight with me. She eased me out of my '80s perms (in 2002) which I'd had since I was 11. I could never get my hair to grow any longer than shoulder length--it was too dry and fragile and would break off. Since using WEN I now wear it below my bra strap. It's the first time I've ever been able to blow dry it with a round brush and wear it straight w/o touching a curling iron. It has volume, it's smooth, glossy, easy to manage. Their advertised 3-month supply lasted me 10 months. I didn't waste any, but I didn't deprive my hair either. I washed 2-3 times/week depending on my activities. My guess is I needed less than average since my hair is so fine & thin (my ponytail is less than 3/4" across). Every few months I would use regular shampoo/conditioner for 1-3 days primarily because I left home w/o it. It felt like it rejuvenated my hair. It might have been due to a slight build up of product, as some users post, but I've always heard that switching your product for a week every 3-4 months has the same effect. So ultimately, I give the WEN Cleansing Conditioner 2 thumbs up! and will continue to use it exclusively as long as it keeps giving me such great results. Oh! I've read a few reviews blaming WEN for causing the users hair loss and while I feel their pain, I've had the reverse reaction. I always had a drain full of hair after each shower as well as "shedding" all over the house. Since using WEN, my hair (thankfully) seems content to remain on my head...maybe that's why it feels thicker? :-) To be completely forthcoming with my personal knowledge/experience with WEN. My mom was so impressed with my results, that she tried it herself. She has very short, color treated, thinning hair (in her mid to late 60s). She felt that it was too heavy and weighted her hair down, even when she diluted it. So, yeah for me, she gave me her unused product that I continued to have positive results with.
