Wen Week 1

After one week of using Wen, I don’t think I’ve ever been more comfortable with the condition of my hair and scalp. First of all, I would like to say that I have hair that is thin, fine, wavy, curly and prone to frizz. Despite all this, I still like my hair because it can be styled so many different ways. For the last 8 months, I have been cutting my hair very short because long hair just annoys me. Is it weird that it creeps me out to feel hair touch my neck and shoulders? Anyway, one of the things that I do hate is how oily my scalp gets. I cannot go a day without washing my hair, and I had gotten into the habit of washing my hair twice a day. When I read how the Wen cleansing conditioner works, I was skeptical about how it could possibly clean my hair AND my scalp if it didn’t lather and was basically a conditioner. I imagined my scalp being a disgusting oil slick.

I was shocked how soft and manageable my hair felt after just one use. My hair felt clean and my scalp was not oily at all. I washed my hair twice a day the first 2 days until I decided to cut back to once a day not knowing what I would find the next morning. Well, my scalp and hair still felt clean! I had a normal amount of natural oils…nothing like before. The best part is that I don’t even have to use any styling products. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?! Yes, my hair is just soft and manageable without having to use balms, gels or hairspray.

Yes, it just the first week but boy am I impressed! More to come…


Wen – Starting Out

Dear Wen,

I really hope that you live up to all your promises. Every time I see Chaz Dean’s freaky funky face during my late night insomnia infomercial sessions, I keep wondering if you’re really worth the price. Granted I have spent a small fortune trying to figure out what shampoo will work best for my hair but you are kinda pricey so if you don’t work, I’ll be super pissed off.

So, I got my first shipment of Wen today which I wasn’t expecting. I had really been interested in getting it but I always found it too pricey. Well, when I saw an ad for it on Swagbucks, I decided to go ahead and do it. In case you’ve never heard of Swagbucks, it is this awesome online search engine where you can earn Swagbucks that you can then redeem for various prizes. I always end up redeeming my points for Amazon Gift Cards or Paypal. It really is a lot more than just a search engine and you can earn points by taking polls, filling out surveys, watching videos and so much more. I’ve actually earned a few hundred dollars in gift cards since I started using it. There really is no catch!

So the main reason I decided to order it was because Swagbucks was offering 1,200 Swagbucks for trying out Wen. (1,200sb is almost enough for $15 in amazon gift cards.)  The kit came with the cleansing conditioner, their deep treatment, a wide-toothed comb and two free gifts for $29.99 + free shipping. Pretty cool! This is what came today:

I wanted to use it immediately so I jumped in the shower. I have very short hair (I’ve been sporting a sort of pixie cut for the last 8 months) but it’s very fine, thin and oily. I tend to wash my hair every day…sometimes more than once. Whenever I hear people wash their hair every other day or every two days, I gag. I’m glad they can get away with that but if I tried it, my head would be a grease ball.

I also have a lot of issues with scents so I was worried if it would end up giving me a headache. The scent was not overpowering but it did smell medicinal. Gross. I followed the directions and then proceeded to rinse out my hair thoroughly. I was surprised that my hair actually felt squeaky clean and that the scent went away. Now that my hair is dry, it feels incredibly soft, and it is super manageable which never happens with my hair.

This really isn’t a review yet since I just tried it today. I will be sure to post more info at the first week mark. I really hope this works for my hair!
