Wen Cleansing Conditioner {A Winey Mommy Review}

I recently had the chance to review Wen Cleaning Conditioner {in sweet almond mint}.  I don't know about y'all but when it comes to hair care products I am super picky.

I am cursed blessed with extremely thick and wavy hair--and living in the South?  Oh my.  It's so hard to find a good shampoo/conditioner/product that won't totally dry out my hair or make my hair extremely greasy. 

When the Wen Cleansing Conditioner arrived I was ecstatic to review it.  It recently was awarded the coveted Shecky's "Beauty at its Best Award" for both their shampoo and condtioner.  I love using a product that's been recognized--that means {to me} that it must be great to quite a few people out there.

This conditioner is a single step process that cleanses and conditions--which means there is no need to use a seperate shampoo.  I read on the back of the bottle that this product doesn't lather.  It's like a really thick conditioner treatment for your hair that you leave on for 3-5 minutes, depending on the amount of conditioning you are looking for {more if you have longer hair}.  It's also made with natural ingredients which is very important to me--both for myself and my family.  The Wen Cleansing Conditioner does not contain sodium laurel sulfate and other damaging detergents that can be found in a lot of other shampoos/conditioners. 

***Product Benefits***

*Will give your hair added moisture, body and shine
*Works great on a variety of hair types including wavy, straight, curly and ethnic hair
*Leaves your hair soft, manageable and touchable
*Is usable both before and after any chemical treatment or when hair has been stressed
*Strengthening action that will repair damage, renews elasticity and reduces chemical stress of dry and/or extremely damaged hair

***My Opinion***

I used the Wen Cleansing Conditioner last nite.  It smelled SO good--very minty and fresh.  In my opinion it's a great product to use in the morning if you're tired and taking a shower--the scent will wake you up and perk you right up!

I pumped the recommended 16-24 pumps into my hand and massaged into my scalp and hair {and remember it's both a shampoo and conditioner--awesome!!}.  I let it set for ~5 minutes and then rinsed.  I was afraid because of how thick it was that it would be hard to rinse out and leave a film on my hair.  I was wrong!  It left my hair feeling so clean--I loved how clean my hair felt.

I then did the "ultimate test"--blow drying my hair.  My hair tends to frizz out quite a bit if I don't use the right conditioner.  I blow dried and straightened my hair--perfection.  I seriously loved it.  Even the husband complimented me on my hair.  I loved that he even noticed that I was having a great hair day.

I would definitely recommend this product to my family, friends and readers.  I loved it that much.  A great product that both smells wonderful and did its job--with natural ingredients. 


***Where to Buy?***

You can purchase any of the Wen by Chaz Dean products on their website.  The set includes the Wen Cleansing Conditioner {which is what I received} as well as styling creme, re moist intensive hair repair mask, texture balm and a wide tooth shower comb.  All for the great price of $29.95!


I was provided a free bottle of the Wen Cleansing Conditioner in order to write a product review and give my honest opinion.  I was not paid to write this post and all opinions above are honest and written by me and by my experience.  I want to thank Traci and The Product Review Place for giving me the opportunity to complete this review.

Hmmmm...I'm jealous of your thick wavy hair....I have very thin, very fine curly hair and I live in the desert so my scalp is always dry and itchy...do they have any products for that?

That sounds like a great product! I will add it to my list of splurges to try sometime. It would be nice to have a combo product that actually works!

It smelled minty? I've never used a minty hair product. I think I'd be happy all day long!
