Had a tummy ache late one night so flipped on the tube about 4am - to this infomercial. I am always on the lookout for the greatest thing for thick crazy dry hair, so I thought I would try it. Here's the verdict:
It does not lather. After reading MUA, I thought my hair would feel "dirty" after using since no suds action, but I am pleasantly surprised. My hair feels cleaner and has stayed "fresher" more so even than normal. I also love the way it feels - so soft and I have had to do no styling at all - I just kinda shake and go. If I took some time I think it would probably really look sleek and smooth. It definitely has cut WAY down on the frizz. It does take a LOT of product - so, this stuff ends up being expensive to use .. but it is good - for MY hair - and I will repurchase. I don't think this would necessarily work for everyone - if hair is oily, prob would not work, or if you are obsessed with lather, you wouldn't like this.
I love it! I have been trying to find something chemical free to use for my hair--and while I was happy with the outcome of using Kiehl's I was looking for something more natural. I tried the Sweet Almond Mint and I am hooked. I have shoulder length, naturally blonde hair that is straight but I have a LOT of it--my hair is tremendously thick and a lot of conditioners weight it down.
I could believe when I started using it how healthy my hair was! It's now been 3 months and my hair is healthier and shinier than ever! It does take a tremendous amount--but no separate conditioner, shampoo and leave in product. I love it!
Ok, so I was pretty excited about this stuff and tried it as soon as it showed up. I have waist long loose curls, and mild frizz, slightly fried ends from flat ironing (once a month with my TCP...another infomercial impulse buy) I was already using an all natural sulfate free shampoo from target, conditioning with Ojon and leaving in potion number 9, my HG. I recently went cone free. So that Chaz guy (he kinda creeps me out, especially his pic that comes in the box) says you will see a difference after the first use. Well I sure did. Tons of frizz and no definition.it was soft and clean but eh.I used a ton. The bottle aint gonna last long. Combed it through with that weapon that came free with purchase...ouch! Left it in for ten min. Rinsed thoroughly and then did the deep conditioner for 1 hour. Rinsed out with cold water, put in leave in, then styling product. Then air dried. Frizz, nothing special. Ill try a couple more times. Oh ya, and the pump was broken when I opened the box. So how the heck am I suposed to measure the number of pumps. So far not so good.EDIT: I used it again. Tons of product, this time without the intensive treatment. Hmmm... There sure is a lot of hair on the shower floor...wait a second...that's MY hair, I should know, I grew it myself. I kinda lost a lot the first time but this was worse. I had left it on for a couple of hours like Chaz says you should. I rinsed with cold water, put some leave in and the styling product. Ok, so its soft, and kinda shiny, but still frizy and my curls are all fluffed up not the ringlets that my old routine gave me. I called to cancel and return. They were totally cool. Told me to keep it. Used it on my daughter, huh...there's a lot of her hair stuck in the tub drain. She never looses a noticable amount. I realy don't like this stuff.
I can really see how this product would be good for people with coarse, dry and/or curly hair, or hair that is heavily highlighted or chemically damaged. For me however, I have fine med. length hair in fairly good condition. My hair never felt clean using this and the more I used it, the more limp and lifeless my hair became. It eventually made my scalp itch A LOT and my hair seemed to start shedding more. That was it for me, in the bin it went.
I fell for the infomercial I saw one random day and ordered it. I've been using it for the past month and wash my shoulder length, medium thick hair every other day. Well, it's not a bad product, but it's nothing to rave about IMO. My hair is softer than it was when I was using Phyto prior to Wen. But my hair feels "heavy". Not greasy, but heavy (for lack of a better term). I'll continue to use because it was so expensive, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing.
Sorry, but this just didn't work for me. My hair never felt clean, or anything close to that. It does make an excellent conditioner to use after shampooing but I just don't "get" the product. No thanks.
This stuff is just okay. It didn't damage my hair, but it didn't do much either. IMHO, this is a PITA to use and is definitely not for someone who wants a simple beauty routine. If it was as amazing as Melissa Gilbert would have you believe, it would be worth it...but, it's not. I didn't find it to be any better or worse than any of the other shampoos or conditioners I've used before.
Yes I agree, you do have to use alot of this product. I have heavily highlighted mid back length hair and it TANGLES alot and due to all the coloring it is highly porous. This works good on the tangles and the porosity( took alot less time to dry) still deciding about my scalp though, but I do know my hair is clean after I use it. I dont know if I like it as well as my brocato or redken shampoo but I will keep trying.
This is the absolute best hair product I have come across. I started with the fig, which is great and better if you have drier hair. The sweet almond mint is also great for dry hair, and I like the subtle mint because it's slightly cooling. I want to try the tea tree oil because that's even more cooling I hear. Great for summer.
I've been using this product for a year now. My hair is normally wavy/straight and frizzy, but when I started using this it was always shiny, soft, manageable (rarely had to use a brush...and I normally get bad tangles all the time). The key is to use a lot (I use about 35 pumps because I have long hair) and then a small amount as a leave in conditioner at the end.
There is no lather and you don't need to use anything else to wash your hair. I thought that this was going to leave my scalp greasy because it seems more like a conditioner, but it really does get my hair clean! It never feels greasy and I can now go about three days before having to wash it. They say one bottle lasts a month, but mine lasts about 2- 2 1/2 months (and I just mentioned that I use a lot), which justifies the cost; about 30 bucks a bottle. I haven't tried his other products because I don't need anything else. I got my hair permed and this really curbs the frizz, but now I do use a little bit of curl cream to add some bounce. I would never had gotten a perm if I had not found this product because my hair is normally very frizzy, and chemicals would just make it worse.
This is definitely worth every penny, and I'll never go back to shampoo and conditioner. I ran out once and had to use shampoo and conditioner, and with one wash my hair was back to the frizz-ball. I got on auto-delivery with Q** to avoid that situation again--it's really that good.
My only complaint, and a minor one considering how great the product is, is the packaging. It comes in a pump bottle, and when I'm down to about 1/3 of the bottle, the pump stops working. I have to open it up and squeeze/force the stuff out for the remainder. Kind of irritating and I really wish he would find some better packaging. But I will live with it for now, my hair looks too good to worry about that!
I loved this product at first. I liked that it was natural and didn't contain any harsh chemicals.... BUUUT..... You're cleansing your hair with conditioner. You can buy any other natural conditioner and do the same for a cheaper price. I will admit though, it left my hair very touchable and very beautiful. I didn't have to style it, just let it air dry and it seemed like i took time making my hair look that way. ***NOW HERE'S THE THING- I should've dedicated more time researching this product... I've always had a problem with conditioners. When I use them after shampooing it seems to make my hair fall out alot. Sooooo, I was washing my hair with WEN conditioner and never gave that a second thought... so my hair fell out like crazy! I was terrified and I'm still so upset because I lost so much hair! And it says you can leave it as a leave-in-conditioner... My GOD I left that stuff on my hair all day and I didn't know why it was falling out. I used the right amount- I followed the directions properly. Just a *tad* as a leave-in-conditioner. I have alot of friends who's hair falls out alot when using conditioners too. So this seems pretty common. If you have that problem, don't buy this product. It wasn't a waste of money for me, but Im so sad about my hair :( It'll grow back but it's still upseting. I will never ever repurchase. It's crazy expensive.
