Wen will I know the truth? Wen Lavender Cleansing Conditioner

Pros:works on fine, thin hair the best

Cons:have to make time to use, not useful for any other hair types

The Bottom Line: for baby fine hair and thin hair ONLY. Otherwise, you won't see much happening.


So this is my last entry in my Wen trilogy. Along with Wen Fig and Wen Sweet Almond Mint, in the 3 pack I bought was Wen Lavender. Now note I'm not the biggest lavender fan out there, but since this is specified for fine and thin hair, I had my oldest in mind when buying this. The set of three 6 oz bottles cost me $34 over on QVC.

Now really you can use any of the Wen formulas on your hair, but for fine and thin hair this formula is suggested. Really the name of this is not shampoo, but cleansing conditioner. It's quite different in that there's no sulfates in this stuff and no rich bubbly lather either. Which is a tad scary if you think about it. This stuff has the consistency of lotion and I was thinking it would be like smearing grease all in my hair and never being able to get it rinsed out ever. It's not nearly as scary as what you would think though.

Oh and let me mention the scent here. Like I said, I'm not big on lavender at all, but you lavender fans out there would like this one.

Now, depending on your hair length, the Wen brochure (which by the way has half nude folks with great hair postered all in so keep the literature away from you kids ok?) anyway suggests for above shoulder hair, you use twenty pumps. For hair past the shoulders, 40 pumps. Not only does this sound totally extreme to me, but I'd lose count after about 12 and just stick some in my hair and be done with it. Now, it's much easier when working on someone else's head really. My suggestion would be to divide hair into sections and add just a smidge of water when working this stuff in.  When I use this I'm sure I don't use 20 pumps, I think the most I've used is maybe 15.

The longer you leave this stuff the better it is. I aim for at least 10 minutes but there's only so much you can do in the shower before you get to the point where you are ready to wash your hair and get on with life. It takes a good bit to get this out of your hair, so be aware of that and you really need to take your time and work through your hair. The instructions suggest you pump 10 more pumps and leave it in your hair as a leave in conditioner, but I don't do that.

I will say this does wonders for really fine hair. Most shampoos out there make my oldest kid's hair a frizzball mess, but this is really calming to it and it is much more manageable, but for a kid, it's just one of those things you have to really have time for to do it right. I try to do this about once or twice a week and it works really well. For my hair which is thick and pretty normal, not much happened with this.

So, if you have absolutely the finest hair ever, this would probably work for you. But normal hair, you can forget seeing any sort of results. For fine hair though, it seems to be not as stripping as what regular shampoos do, and hair is so much more manageable, less flyaways, and generally has a better appearance. But it's one of those things you need to take time out to do, and it's not always feasible.
I do recommend this overall IF you have fine hair, but not as a daily thing. Using this as a booster maybe twice a week does wonders for us.
