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.
