    Default WEN Hair care

    just curious if any of you ladies have tried it...

    If so... like it, hate it...which product did you use...

    I know we have a couple hairdressers on the board too... any feedback you'd care to share

    its ok. i dont thinks its magic like the ad claims. before i straightened my hair it was still frizzy and unrully no matter what i used. the plus: no sodium chloride ( can strip color) and one product in the shower over 2.

    I guess that is what I was looking for... I have natural red hair... that I color (red of course) because well, finally, at 45 some gray is creeping in (one def advantage to red hair I've noticed is gray didn't come as quickly as friends with other colors of hair) - but color on red heads, even shades of red (as I try and keep it close to my natural color) FADES so FAST!

    and at $90+ for color its flipping expensive... if this would help me keep color longer might be worth the price...

    Lately because I can't afford it, and trying to color it once myself was a disaster....I've gone to the local beauty college - but that is hit and miss... you find one that does a good job and 6 months later they graduate... but $40 as opposed to $90 or more is a better deal....

    i hear you. living in the sunny south im sure hurts you as well. i do a semi perm gloss on mine between touch ups to keep my color vibrant. shades eq from redken. or have your stylist put it on ends while your color processes. its very low peroxide so it doenst hard your hair. pulling color to the ends time after time will make color fade faster and fry your hair. the semi perm deposits color only so it gives you more staying power.

    I know that pulling to ends each time isn't good, but man its so freaking hard to match red.... and I've always ended up with one color at roots another everywhere else when they don't pull it thru..

    that has been one huge disadvantage to moving last year... finding a new stylist...

    right now it needs a super duper conditioning... tons of fly aways.... had one stylist tell me a little olive oil massage it in... put a towel on your pillow and sleep over night with it wash it out in the morning... have yet to try it..

    MG, have you tried biotin? There is some evidence that it can forestall, maybe even reverse, age related loss of pigmentation. Try 10mg a day in divided doses. Can't hurt and it's dirt cheap.

    Hi, I just wanted to say that I have tried WEN and did not like it. My hair really never felt clean after washing. I also used the styling gel that came in the kit, and it seems to make my hair rather sticky, not smooth, when I blow dried it. Hope that helps!
