wen, hair less curly?

I've been using Wen for over a month and love how it makes my hair feel...I use swee alomond mint mostly.
The only downside I think my hair is more wavy and less curly.
Anyone else have this issue? Any advice?

I have not had luck with other low poos before. now that I use Wen, I feel like my hair is clean, versus using DEVA low poo.
*Shampoo - Tresemme Naturals (low sulfate) once every week or two.
*Conditioner - DEVA One (used for co-wash too). Yes To Carrots conditioner.
*Leave in - Garnier Fructis Clean styling cream & gel (DEVA gels are hit or miss depending on the weather. ULTA medium hold gel is also silicone free).
*Other likes - DEVA moisture lock spray, Ducks Clips (spray with gel first), diffuse 30 - 40%.

    Could be the dimethicone, the glycerin, the emulsifying wax or even the protein if your hair does not like it.
    I agree, Deva LowPoo left my hair feeling like it was coated and I want my hair to feel clean.

    Based on the ingredients, it looked like it only had 1water soluble cone....am I wrong? my hair loves protein so that is not an issue

    Amodimethicone can build up on some people. I agree that it's probably the amodimethicone doing it. I've used it in the past and also had issues with the amodimethicone in it.

    One cone yes but how much of that cone is in there? No way to tell, you might just want to alternate WEN with something else. Also depends on the time of year I find any kind of cone leaves my hair straighter when it's cold but in the Summer cuts down on frizz and works well to manage my hair.

    I haven't found that, just the opposite. The more moisturized and soft my hair is the curlier it is and wen really does soften it. My question about wen is is it the same as Sally's imitation Hair One. I am using them both and it seems like wen is a bit more moisturizing, but I am not sure and it is much more expensive even buying it on ebay as I have. I kind of think it is better but am not totally sure. I like both products and find them more moisturizing than one c.
