Chaz Dean, who is probably the most successful Hollywood hairdresser created a product that is supposed to replace shampooing. He claims that the product will put life back into hair follicles. He created WEN Hair in 1993. Typical shampoos supposedly strip the hair of their sheen; Wen is a shampoo and conditioner replacement system that is supposed to be better for the hair. It has no surfactants, sulfates, or detergents that dry out the hair. Dean tested his new product for five years before making an infomercial about it.
Wen hair products can be purchased from its infomercial or online trough totalbeauty.com. It has a sweet, almond, mint scent. The 16 oz cleansing conditioner comes in your choice of lavender, cucumber aloe, white citrus, and pomegranate. Everything in the Wen line is made from natural ingredients such as French lavender oil.
Hairdresser Emily McClure had seen Chaz Dean’s infomercials for WEN hair and decided to try the product out for herself. Bustle originally reported this article. She chose to try the Sephora Fig version because it claimed to add moisture, bounce, and shine to her dull hair. McClure described her hair as greasy, frizzy, and unruly. This was the perfect day to try Wen hair. She washed her hair every day for a week to see how this hair product worked. Almost immediately on the first day, McClure could swear her hair was getting thicker. She notes Wen recommends using at least 10 pumps for short hair, at least 16 pumps for medium hair, and at least 24 pumps for long hair as opposed to about the size of a quarter of regular shampoo.
