How To Break The Lather Habit: A Review Of WEN Hair Care Products

You might be used to dumping a large dollop of shampoo on your head and lathering up in the shower. WEN by Chaz Dean turns that idea on its head.

That thick lather is often produced by sulfates. Sulfates are cheap detergents that are harsh and can strip your hair of moisture and color. You may be damaging your hair as you cleanse it if you use a sulfate-based shampoo.

What Is WEN?

WEN by Chaz is a line of hair care products that doesn’t contain sulfates or harsh chemicals and its star product is the Cleansing Conditioner. This 5-in-1 product cleanses and conditions your hair. You simply massage it into your hair and scalp and then rinse. There’s no need to use a separate conditioner. If you do need additional detangling, you can add more Cleansing Conditioner to your strands at the end of your shower.

WEN also offers a few styling products that can be used after the shower. Nourishing Mousse helps provide volume and protection from the elements. Anti-Frizz Styling Crème goes further than the leave-in Cleansing Conditioner to keep your hair looking sleek. The Moist Intensive Hair Treatment offers more concentrated protection.

Strengthen Hair Naturally

The WEN hair care line provides multi-use products that don’t contain harsh chemicals. When you use these products, you allow your hair and scalp to naturally balance themselves out. Many users report having much softer, shiner hair even after using WEN only once.

Are you used to having squeaky-clean hair after shampooing? While your hair may seem clean, it can also feel frizzy and dry. Instead of stripping your hair of its natural oils, WEN uses natural botanicals to protect your hair. This leaves your hair shinier and less prone to frizz.

As you continue to use the product, your scalp will get used to the new type of cleanser. After using regular shampoo, your scalp might go overboard, producing more oil to try to moisturize your locks. After using WEN products, your scalp may begin to create less oil, letting you go longer in between washings.

Washing Your Hair Without Suds

So many beauty product advertisements make us believe that a thick lather is the key to proper cleansing. When you begin to use WEN hair care products, you might be surprised by the lack of suds. It can take time to get used to the process.

However, the gorgeous hair that results from using this product will help you quickly adjust to your new, streamlined shower routine. You’ll no longer need to use several different products to make your hair look clean, healthy and perfectly styled.

The 7 best tips for summer hair care

Most of us long for summer so we can lounge underneath the sun and just be, but we sometimes forget the effect different seasons have on our hair.  A few things to blame for stressed out tresses are the sun, chlorine from pools and sand and salty water from the beach.

You don’t have to sacrifice your vacation to maintain luscious hair, simply check out these quick tips to help keep dry hair hydrated!

  1. Apply a moisturizer or hair oil ONCE a week around summertime. Be sure to massage through from your scalp to the ends. One moisturizer that i have tried and loved is by Ojon. Their Dry Recovery intensive hair mask smells so yummy, and leaves hair soft. The best part, you only leave it on for only two minutes!
  2. Shampoo less or use a non-stripping shampoo like Wen. Shampooing everyday can cause hair to become dry and strip haircolor.  I started using Wen a couple years ago, and still love the way it maintains my hair. Check out my Wen Review! Besides not fading haircolor, it also leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable minus the detergent and surfactants found in most shampoos.
  3. Enjoy the heat from outside not from your blow dryer! Cut back on styling with heat, especially if it is a daily ritual. Instead try casual and cool hairstyles for summer, like braids and high buns. Read this post for -> perfect and casual summer hair tutorials.
  4. Get a trim. Hair is said to grow fastest around summer, so it’s a good idea to cut all the damaged ends around this time.
  5. Keep your body hydrated. As they say, health is from within. If you keep your body healthy, hair and nails will follow. Drink enough water to avoid dehydration, it is also said to help hair grow and prevent hair loss.
  6. If you must use styling products, use one with UV protection. Biosilk shine-on finish spray is a good candidate since it protects from the sun, controls frizz and is super light on hair. Spritz this all over just before heading out to the beach!
  7. Keep it cool! Rinse off hair after swimming with cool water not hot. This will help remove salt and chlorine. This is very important, especially if you don’t have access to shower immediately. Rinsing your hair with cool water is not only for summertime, it’s a year-round tip. You can shower in warm water, and just before you are going to step out switch to cool and rinse your hair. This helps close the cuticle and seal in moisture.

Keeping hair moisturized around summertime might seem like a tough task, hopefully these tips simplified it a bit.
