WEN by Chaz Dean(?)

munchkinmunchkin Posts: 2,909Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
There is a product line on QVC that is called (I think) WEN and it is by Chaz Dean (think that is his name).

Has anyone tried any of these products? He has a product that you use instead of shampoo; think it is a combination cleanser and conditioner. I know a lot of the women on this board do the "no poo" method and I thought this product sounded like it might be in the same line of thinking.

Just wondering if I could get any feedback here.

    Here's a thread

    I like the WEN Fig quite a bit, right now it's my main condition cleanse. It's expensive but I can cleanse and condition in one cyle, apply a leave in then a gel, a little oil on my ends and I'm done. I keep it on between 3-5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly (it contains menthol and that can irritate if left in).

    I've always been curious about this stuff. I've watched this guy on QVC. What gets me is how much product he recommends using. For the models with BSL hair, he recommends 40 pumps.

    Keep in mind this is your shampoo and conditioner in one cycle. I use between 30-40 pumps (maybe 10 or so per section), massage well, add some water, scrunch some more, rub and squeeze it my hair. All told keep it on for 3-5 minutes then rinse thoroughly.

    I agree with Suburbanbushbabe, the WEN Fig is VERY moisturizing and the best IMO for thick coarse hair. The more pumps you use the better.

    I haven't been using it for awhile, because I found something else I like better and cheaper. It takes a bit of getting used to and trial and error figuring out what does and doesn't work. I realized I couldn't stand it as a leave-in and still needed to use gel to get my hair to look decent. Chaz's products by themselves made my hair look dull.

    It detangles like nobody's business though and you'll be able to run your fingers through your hair the longer you use it.

    I LOVE Chaz's products. I had the "Discovery" kit from QVC - a 6 oz. bottle each of the Tea Tree, Fig & Sweet Almond Mint. They gave me great results - I'd massage into my scalp, run it through the ends, and leave it sit while I showered. Then I'd rinse with cool water and apply a few pumps as a leave-in/styler. While it didn't provide "hold" per se, I got really nice curl formation that lasted all day - AND my hair was very shiny. But, I have to agree here with Brio - it's a LOT or product to use. My hair is fine but thick and falls to about mid-back. I went through this stuff in no time. Too expensive for me to use every day.
    (Now I CO with V05 kiwi lime.) Not quite as luxurious as Wen, but for the difference in price, I can cope.

    Jada1111, what is the product you are using in place of WEN Fig?

    I did an Ojon treatment this morning because my hair was dry from using lemon juice yesterday. I used WEN and it cleansed my hair even with the Ojon oil in it. I'm trying a comparable (cheaper) product, Blended Beauty Cleansing Conditioner Cream, but it has witch hazel in it. So I'm concerned about it being drying over time.

    What's the deal with witch hazel? so, its know to dry out the hair?
    4a/4b... at this point, Henna has to be my friend, cause I've tried EVERYTHING else!!

    Henna, Afro Detangler, KBB hair cream, Vitamin E oil, Qhemet AOHC, AND no more letting my hair dry curly... darn knots are driving me crazy!!:happy7:

    Yeah, witch hazel is drying. It's an astringent; people use it as toner on their skin. But I ordered another sample from sistasplace.biz and we'll see. The BB cleansing cream is very rich and moisturizing.
