WEN by Chaz Dean is a popular brand, we’ve all seen the QVC infomercials, we’ve all seen the brand featured in magazines, but what happens when an average person tries out this brand? Stylist Emily McClure tried out the brand for a week and here is what she discovered.
The first thing she noticed what the large amount of product the instructions require 10-16 pumps for short hair, 16-24 for medium hair, and 24-32 pumps for long hair. McClure followed the instructions and massaged the WEN product into her scalp and across the ends of her hair. She did note that she almost immediately noticed her hair felt thicker and less hair fell out during the shower. Her hair was bouncy and shiny after a quick blow-dry. The next morning, McClure noticed her roots were already a bit greasy, an unexpected surprise as it usually took and entire day or two for her roots to look that greasy, it had only been about 10 hours.
Day two turned out a bit better, her roots weren’t as greasy as before though still greasier than she would have liked. Even moving her shower to first thing in the morning only helped so much. Initially her hair was bouncy and shiny, people even noticed the difference, but before the day was done it already had a frizzy and greasy look to it. One day, McClure even woke up late and didn’t have time to wash and blow dry her hair, it was a greasy disaster and even though she worked at a salon, she was unable to get her roots to look anything but greasy.
As the week began to wind down, McClure realized the product must be used daily and must be used first thing in the morning. It was shiny, fuller and bouncy while using WEN, and always looked amazing right after a wash and blow-dry. WEN seemed to make her hair lose its ability to hold curl, but the shiny and bouncy healthy hair was hard to deny.
