OMG Hair Products!!!

I am not one to gush about beauty products, so listen up! Especially if you dye your hair.

This week I started using new stuff that I swear to you is the best thing evar. The following paragraphs will very likely come out sounding like a ridiculous advertisement, but I promise that I'm not selling it or getting kickbacks. I'm talking about a replacement for shampoo called cleansing conditioner. The idea behind it is that the ingredients that make shampoo lather up are damaging to the hair, so this product doesn't lather.

I was skeptical about trying this so-called cleansing conditioner because I have the dreaded combination of oily scalp and dried-out ends, but it is AMAZING how much better my hair looks and behaves. I feel that you all deserve to share in the glory of this stuff. The only flaw is that it's kind of expensive, but if you're already using both shampoo and conditioner, then you'll be cutting back to only one product. I'm also using way less of any other product that I would ordinarily use for styling; seriously, it's miraculous how much my hair has changed from only a few days of not using shampoo, and my head feels just as clean as it should.

WEN by Chaz Dean. Go and get it! I use the cucumber aloe, and I never want to use regular shampoo again.

My mother swears by the stuff and she got my oldest niece using it over the summer. I think I'll be giving it a shot!

Let me know what you think of it! :)

Of course I have to be allergic to aloe...dagnabbit!
Maybe they have other ones without it. I'll have to check.

There are several different kinds, so I hope one doesn't have aloe. You're the only person I know with that allergy!

And I just noticed today that you're listed as someone who's showing up for Context! I'll be there, too! :)

It is a suckky allergy to have, let me tell you. I just get used to reading labels.

And yay!! *happy dance* Context is going to be FABULOUS!!

I didn't see any way to locate stores, either. It's a bummer to have to pay for shipping, so I'm hoping to find a local place where I can get it. If I can't, I may just order it by the gallon since I'm hooked--it costs a lot less to buy that size.

Let me know how you like it!

I dye my hair, have an oil scalp and dry ends... thanks to you, I am going to give this a try! Thanks for the advice. I am crossing my fingers that it helps!

Oh, I want to try that! I think that's going to be my finishing-the-book reward. Thanks for the tip!

I already knew about the sulfates in shampoo drying out hair and stripping dyed hair of the dye, so I use organic stuff (Burt's Bees) without Lauryls or Sulfates. It's incredibly hard to find stuff without them, so I'll definitely give this a shot. Thanks for the linky!

I'm so curious about this stuff. Are you still using it?
Dec. 17th, 2008 11:40 am (UTC)
I am still using it, because it's the best hair product EVAR. :)

Hey, Nayad, are you still using the WEN? I made a mental note of this post way back in 08, but at the time I had a huge stash of shampoo at home. I am finally out of shampoo, and might possibly try this, but I thought I'd check and see if you'd gotten tired of it yet. :-)

I still like it just as much. I've been able to stand growing my hair out because it's in better condition than it ordinarily would be by shoulder length. This pleases me!
