So I watched, and I watched, and I watched some more. I thought to myself, there is no way a cleansing conditioner will work for my hair. I have very very fine thin hair, and thought that using a "cleansing conditioner" would make me extremely greasy! How could it not only clean my hair, but make it look bouncy and full too?
I couldn't take it anymore, I wanted beautiful hair like those models, so when I saw it at Nordstrom Rack, I took it as a sign. I bought one bottle of the Lavender scented conditioner and honestly expected I would be returning it.
The next morning I was actually excited to take a shower! I hopped in and followed the instructions exactly as described on the bottle, and you guys, my hair was actually clean, like really and truly clean! It was also shiny, and sleek, and I had hardly any frizz! Over the three weeks that I have been using this product, my color has not faded at all and my hair looks overall healthier.
So why isn't everybody running out and using this stuff? Well theres a catch...I have to use 16 pumps, yes SIXTEEN pumps, every time I wash my hair in order to experience great hair. On the back of the bottle, it says for medium length hair to use between 10-20 pumps, and preferably in two cleasings. So normally I do 8 pumps, lather, and rinse. Then do another 8 pumps, lather and rinse. If you try and skimp and do less pumps, which I tried, your hair will not be as clean and you won't see the same results. If you have thicker hair than me, which I imagine everyone reading this does, you will have to use even more pumps to cleanse your hair, so one bottle can go pretty fast.
If you really break it down, it can be a pretty pricey product to use. One 16 oz bottle costs $32.00 (I paid $24.00 at Nordstrom Rack, but it didn't come with a pump, so I had to buy one separately).
So how long does one bottle last you ask? Well I bought this 3 weeks ago and am a little over half way through the bottle. I haven't used any other shampoos or conditioners besides this one and wash my hair approximately every other day. If I had to guess, this bottle will last me 6 weeks and spending $32.00 every 6 weeks for your cleansing conditioner can definitely add up.
My final thought on this product is that yes, it really does work! For all hair types too! But, it can be an expensive habit to maintain. Will I repurchase it? Yes. I also want to try out some of his other products as well, like the masks and sprays! If you are interested in learning more about WEN, you can click here.
