I came across an article on Bustle.com about Wen by Chaz Cleansing Conditioner. I have heard about this product before on Twitter that had gotten great results, so it immediately struck my interest. The article follows a woman, with what she describes as “fine, thin hair”, through a seven-day trial using the Fig scented version. On each of the seven days, Emily gives a detailed account of her experience, and she includes pictures to back it up.
Wen hair Cleansing Conditioner is a unique product for a few reasons. It is described as a 5-in-1 formula designed to replace shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner. It does not contain any foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, that strip out the natural oils that protect our hair. Most people are accustomed to shampoos that foam, but Wen by Chaz does not produce any foam. There are numerous studies showing that SLS has negative effects on our health. The health impact of SLS can range from minor skin irritations to even be linked to forms of cancer.
Going on to the Wen website, I see that they produce a number of other hair products, but it seems that the Cleansing Conditioner is their most popular item. It comes in a variety of different scents to cater to everyone’s personal preferences. It is great for all hair types and textures, it can be used every day, it is manufactured in the United States, and it is not tested on animals.
Getting back to Emily’s seven-day experiment, she gives the Sephora sold product a big thumb up. She feels it is particularly beneficial for people with fine hair. I do agree that in her picture on the seventh day her hair looks much thicker than on day one.
You may have heard by now about cleansing conditioners from beauty bloggers or fashion magazines. This new product is all the rage among celebrities and beauty experts alike. While it cleans and hydrates hair effectively, it has almost nothing in common with traditional commercial shampoo and conditioner products.
For generations, women have been washing and conditioning their hair with liquid shampoo and conditioner products that contain harsh chemicals. Shampoos are notorious for containing high amounts of sulfates. What sulfates do is act as harsh detergents that strip the hair of its natural oils. These natural oils keep tresses moisturized and protected against environmental elements that can cause damage.
In addition to sulfates, most commercial hair care brands user filler ingredients that do nothing but damage and dry out hair. These ingredients are used as emulsifiers, fragrances and preservatives. The problem is that hair is fragile and simply cannot handle the high volume of harsh chemicals.
That’s why we now have cleansing conditioners. After years of research have proven the damaging effects of chemicals found in commercial hair care products, natural hair care brands are beginning to come up with formulas that rely on natural ingredients that restore hair back to its original health.
The most popular cleansing conditioner is WEN 5-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner. Formulated by Chaz Dean, a hairstylist based in Los Angeles, this amazing product cleans and deeply conditions delicate hair with plant-based ingredients. It’s free of sulfates and other harsh chemicals. Gentle botanical extracts like chamomile and rosemary rid hair of dirt and grease while keeping the hair’s natural oils safe from harm.
WEN Cleansing Conditioner is remarkably hydrating as well. Thanks to vegetable glycerin, a humectant that is known for locking in moisture, hair is softer and shinier than ever after just one use.
Thanks to Chaz Dean’s unique formula, women can finally achieve healthy and soft hair without using harsh and damaging chemicals.
