Wen – Cleansing Conditioner in Sweet Almond Mint

I finally broke down and purchased the Wen cleansing conditioner after heard so many good things about it. 

Before I start, I have very fine, flat and straight hair.
I have mixed feelings about the product. It does make my hair glossy, silky and smooth, but in a few hours my hair gets super oily/greasy like I haven’t washed my hair for days. I usually wash my hair at night and in the next morning I always have to use a dry shampoo.
I’ve also noticed slightly more hair loss due to the product. One reasonable explanation I have is that the roots are extremely fragile when the hair is wet and too much rubbing/massaging contributes to hair loss.
 The most important reason I won’t repurchase it is that it does not get my hair clean. After I shampoo, I can still find traces of dry shampoo in the roots which could possibly clog the pores in the scalp. 
Overall, I don’t like the product. If you have the same hair type as me, I would not recommend it at all.


  1. sorry it didn't work out for you.
    cleansing conditioner is a new concept to me. i need to rotate sets of different poos and cons to avoid buildup myself. ;-/

  2. i have heard to many great reviews on these products , sorry it did not work well for you 

  3. Thanks for the review - good to know!

  4. Wen was a big thumbs down for me too.

  5. That's too bad that it didn't work for you. I have very fine, wavy and SUPER oily hair/scalp. I used to wash my hair twice a day: once in the morning and once at night. I used WEN for a month straight and the oil production has gone way down where I don't have to wash it twice a day and I actually lost less hair...maybe because it doesn't have sulfates like most shampoos? I'm not sure. I really like it but I know it doesn't work for everyone.
