When it comes to my beauty routine I love trying new things. There are certain things, however, that I had simply never thought to experiment with. Shampooing my hair was one of those things, and it has always been a chore. I’ve been coloring it red for as long as I can remember, it’s really thick, long, and has a tendency to become oily. Shampooing, rinsing, conditioning, rinsing again, the whole process takes forever. Not to mention how many shampoos dull the bright red color that I pay a lot of money to achieve.
I realize now that I was approaching this routine all wrong. My hair is unique and I needed to treat it as such. Cleansing my hair without shampoo was not something I had heard of until I discovered Wen products. Not having to shampoo my hair was too tempting to pass up. I had to try it, and I’m so glad that I did.
The idea behind Chaz Dean’s innovative product is that shampooing is standing between you and having luscious, hydrated hair. Shampoo is inherently harsh. It has sulfates that dull your color and it strips out all of the natural oils your hair and scalp need to be healthy. The more oil you strip away the more oil your scalp produces to try and re-balance itself. This is a pattern that can be very difficult to break. It sounds completely counter-productive, but you really need to have those oils to keep your hair from being greasy!
Wen Cleansing Conditioners act as five different products in one. Shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner, all in one! Picking a day where I have enough free time to shampoo my hair and putting it in my planner? A thing of the past. The dread of shampoo day? Gone.
The time-saving, never having to shampoo my hair again aspect is wonderful. What’s even more wonderful? The way my hair looks and feels after using Wen products. All of the scents are heavenly, though I’m partial to the Sweet Almond Mint variety. My color has stayed vivid and intense for far longer than it normally does. I do not use dry shampoo anymore, as my hair is no longer getting greasy. Since using Wen my hair is “wash and go”, I don’t even blow-dry anymore. I haven’t used shampoo in weeks and my hair has never felt cleaner!
