Ended--Wen Sweet Almond Mint Conditioner Review & Giveaway

 

I recently was given the opportunity to try Wen Conditioner. To be honest, I didn't really know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. Wen Conditioner is not your typical conditioner. It isn't some crappy moisturizing cream that you put on after shampooing. No, Wen Conditioner not only replaces your current conditioner....but it replaces your shampoo too. That's right...you do not shampoo before using this! I admit I had a hard time getting this concept to sink in. We have been raised to use shampoo and conditioner together. It is typically okay if you leave off the conditioner, but not the shampoo. So, why doesn't Wen just call itself shampoo? Because it isn't. Celebrity stylist Chaz Dean (who by the way has REALLY beautiful hair!) designed Wen Conditioner because he was tired of the damaging effects that shampoo has on hair. Go here to read more.

When my Wen Conditioner came I was expecting a small bottle of conditioner. What I got was this large, wonderful set: 



This set retails for only $29.95 plus shipping on the Wen website. What a steal! I also just found out that you can buy products individually & in varying scents on Amazon (see widget at bottom of page).

So, I proceeded to read the directions and I jumped into the shower to test my Wen Conditioner. The first thing I loved was the scent. The Sweet Almond Mint scent is amazing. It is soft and sweet. When I first pumped it into my hand I was a little worried because it felt heavy and you had to use a lot. Then I proceeded to rub it into my scalp with a little bit of water. I was in heaven! The Mint actually makes a slight tingly feeling on your scalp (almost like some menthol dandruff shampoos...only better). My hair instantly felt clean and I even felt revitalized from the mint. When I got out of the shower my hair felt soft and had more volume than normal. I realized I was in love! 

A few days after initially using Wen I got really sick with Food Poisoning and didn't want to leave my bed/toilet, not to mention get a shower. So, I skipped a shower that day. I almost never do this because I have really oily hair that drives me insane if it isn't washed within at least 24 hours. Well, I noticed that my hair wasn't near as greasy as it normally is! I was able to go all day without a shower and not feel disgusting. Major brownie points for Wen.

I also tested the other products that they sent me. I received Wen Styling Creme, Wen Re moist Intensive Hair Repair Mask, Wen Texture Balm and a Wen Wide Tooth Shower Comb. I love all the products, but most of them I find unnecessary since the Wen Conditioner does such a fantastic job. The Comb is perfect for evening out the conditioner in the shower. I used the styling creme to give my hair a little extra shine and body. The texture balm I actually used to refresh my hair at work after a long night (there is one day a week where I work 13 hours). My hair is not very damaged since I haven't dyed it in a while and I don't use a hair dryer, but I still tried out the Hair Repair Mask. It made my hair feel even more silky. These products are fantastic! 

Disclaimer: I received the Wen Healthy Hair Care System in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way. The opinions and thoughts expressed are my own.
