WEN New No-Shampoo Hair Cleansing
Chaz Dean, a successful L.A. hairdresser to the stars, came here to Minneapolis/St.Paul to the Mall of America, last weekend but I missed his appearance . . . pooh! Or should I say . . . no pooh? Chaz has invented the first (that I’ve heard of anyways) no shampoo hair shampoo, so to speak. I’ve written no shampoo hair articles in the past, on how popular the idea of no shampoo hair cleansing has become, but basically there was no hair care product involved, just a technique.
What can this mean you say? No shampoo hair cleansing? Well, Chaz wouldn’t call it a ‘shampoo’ at all! However, he has concocted a hair care product line that claims to work “exceptionally well” in cleansing and hydrating the hair and it’s NOT a shampoo!
“Shampoos contain so many harmful ingredients from detergents, sulfates and surfactants that not only build up with continual use, but are simply bad for the scalp and hair,” Dean explains. “This is why so many women struggle with premature loss of color, frizzies, dullness, dryness, hair loss and many other forms of hair damage.”
Chaz started concocting his mixtures from his own garden in 1993, using herbs and extracts like lavender, rosemary, sage, apples, bananas and pears. He says he hasn’t used a ‘shampoo’ in his own hair since. It took him five years to bring WEN Hair & Body Care, to market and he has been a regular on QVC ever since. He also has a celebrity list of users that includes Halle Berry and Teri Hatcher with a number of them giving testimonials on his website www.chazdean.com
There is an instructional video on YouTube showing how to use WEN. Chaz says,” The main thing with Wen is people think of it as conditioner-that it’s going to weigh down the hair. But the more you use, the better the results. It’s like skin care, use it more in the beginning to make your hair more hydrated and manageable.”
What do I think? Well, there are lots of reasons to believe that we will see better and better hair care products developed for the hair and skin and that they will involve getting away from chemicals we don’t need, like sulfates and harmful detergents. Let’s say . . . I’m hopeful, but sorry I just haven’t tried it. However, there are plenty of people who have tried it and if you go to Amazon.com, you’ll find that it gets a 4 out of 5 star rating after 87 reviews and there are many more at wen reviews. That’s good! You can buy the Wen Cleanser now at Amazon, check it out for yourself and let us know what you think!
