WEN Cleansing Conditioner was the first cleansing conditioner to hit the market. If you are new to the “no poop” era, then you may be wondering, what is a cleansing conditioner? A cleansing conditioner can also be called a co-wash, which is a shampoo-free formula that cleanses hair without stripping it of its natural oils and nutrients. Generally, a cleansing conditioner can be used on all hair types, but is ideal for dry, damaged, curly, or frizzy hair. Leaves hair soft, shiny, manageable and looking healthy.
WEN was created by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean and is endorsed by various celebrities including Brooke Shields, Alyssa Milano, and Angie Harmon. The first cleansing conditioner to hit the market was WEN Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner. Now there are several different formulas and fragrances to choose from, like your lavender cleansing conditioning softener or your new seasonal bouncy hair, Spring Orange Blossom. What distinguishes these cleansers from most traditional shampoos is that they do not contain harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate. This chemical can strip hair of all its oils and nutrients and lead to dry and damaged hair.
WEN Cleansing Conditioner has great benefits, so ditch the shampoo bottles and skip the hot oil treatments and deep conditioners. It’s a 5-in-1 formula that will replace your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner. The results: strong, healthy, shiny, soft, hydrated and more manageable hair that can be achieved with just this product and in just ONE step. What’s also unique about this formula is the fact that it doesn’t lather or lather like most shampoos. It takes some getting used to when switching from a shampoo to a co-wash because most people are used to that flawless clean feeling. However, believe me, when you see the great results after using a co-wash, you will never want to shampoo again.
Using WEN is quite simple and will add ease to your hair care routine. You have to apply a generous amount to wet hair, between 10 and 20 pumps or more, depending on the length of your hair. Next, you should massage the product very well into your scalp and through the strands of your hair. You can use half the number of pumps in your first cleaning and the other half in the second if you prefer to clean twice. Whichever process you decide to go through, be sure to leave the product on for 3-5 minutes or the remainder of the shower. Make sure you rinse well and then you can add a small amount to your wet hair to use as a leave-in conditioner. Lastly, towel dry and style your hair as desired. It’s as simple as that.
The downside to using WEN is the price and the monthly cost. If you buy from their website, you should buy their basic kit for $ 29.95 or their Deluxe kit for $ 39.95. After ordering your first kit, in four weeks they will send you an extra large supply kit and charge the price of the kit plus shipping to your credit card every four weeks. After you receive your first extra large supply, a new supply kit will be shipped to you every 12 weeks. They add additional products like their Anti-Frizz Styling Cream and their Nourishing Mousse. They also give you a FREE additional travel kit. Not everyone may be able to afford the monthly price, but for some, the results of the product are definitely worth it, and trust me, the results are fantastic!
There are a few other options for purchasing WEN Cleansing Conditioner, such as purchasing through QVC, Chaz Dean’s website, or Amazon. However, it can cost you $ 32 or more for a bottle of cleansing conditioner, it may be the best route, especially for those who don’t wash their hair every day or have short hair. If that’s the case, ordering through the WEN website can leave you with a lot of unused product, and for some, the cleansing conditioner is all they really need. QVC has great deals every time they promote the product or make a sale and if you are an Amazon Prime Member, shipping is free. Regardless, you will buy a very affective product that really does show great results. The more you use it, the more beautiful and healthy your hair will look. So WHEN are you going to make the switch from shampoo to cleansing conditioner?
