I wrote about WEN® on TFIO, I interviewed WEN® creator, Chaz Dean, and I often shared my love of the product with readers. My opinions were my own – I was never compensated for my endorsements. And so it is (with sadness) that I tell you that I have removed WEN® from my cleansing repertoire. For good. I knew that there was a class-action lawsuit against WEN® – 200 women joined the lawsuit for hair loss. But I kept using the product because I wanted to see for myself. And then it happened: a few weeks ago my hair started falling out in clumps. It horrified me and I instantly dumped all my product.
It has taken me a long time to share my story – until I could find something else that made my hair feel soft and special and hopefully, revitalize it. I finally have. I now alternate between two different shampoos: Alterna’s Cavier Replenishing Shampoo and Conditioner and BeautyCounter’s Clean Shampoo and Conditioner.
Again, this is my own experience. If you use WEN® you may be fine; you may want to reconsider. I can’t really endorse any product as I did before – no two heads are the same! I can only share what happened to me in the hope that it may offer some ideas for you. For now, though, and for me … the verdict is in – and WEN® is out.
