Just finished a 16 oz bottle of Wen pomegranate cleansing conditioner. Works great on my color treated waist long hair. I do need to use a LOT of pumps but I only find I need to wast my hair every 3 days with Wen so I feel it's an even balance. Smells great. There is a little tingle secondary to menthol...but nothing major. My only problem is half the pump doesn't work well, and I have to thin the product with water to get it going again. (thus adding more pumps of the product). Hair is clean and not greasy. I air dry 90% of the time, but if I blow dry I do follow up with 2-3 drops of Wen oil. Overally very pleased with Wen product.

Most of the bad reviews are coming from, what I have experienced, lack of using the product right.
My hair is naturally brown with hints of red. I have dyed it black, then went blonde, permed it, highlighted it, pretty much all of that, and Wen is great!
Crispy ends- most likely you did not rub the product in the ends long or well enough. Make sure you add more product to the ends, not just all at the top. Flip your head over in the shower and really massage your scalp to your ends. And then make sure you really rinse it out well after. Comb your hair in the shower to make sure your getting water all through the ends.
Greasy- Not rinsing well enough or product build up. Wen is soft, not harsh, so if your the type to use all these finishing products such as hairspray, finishing cream, ect, you need a stronger rinse once a week.Use white vinegar to rinse your hair out once a week, it helps get rid of gunk and make your hair soft.
The reason I did not give it 5 was its expensive and you have to use a lot of product.

I found a WEN product that worked for me. Again, the same nice friend gave me this to try. I have thick, long, mostly straight hair that goes past my shoulders a bit. I'm not looking for volume, just something to tame my occasional frizz and add shine. WEN pomegranate delivered. I think there is less menthol in this than in the cucumber aloe one as I smelled it but barely felt it on my scalp. I take the off-beaten path and don't follow the directions to a T. I use 6 pumps on my hair, focusing on the bottom half of my hair, and then I use one pump on the hair at the nape of my neck and one pump for my roots and massage for a couple of minutes. Then I do the splash of water to "activate" then go about shaving, washing my face, etc. then rinse out afterwards. My hair feels great when it dries--I let it air dry, never blow dry. If I still have a little bit of frizz, I use a dime-sized amount of the pomegranate styling creme and my hair looks shiny and healthy. No greasy roots!

This is the Best thing you can do for your hair!! Make sure you use the styling creme too! If you do exactly what Chaz instructs, your hair will look fabulous!! Check out the instructions in QVC or YouTube. It takes getting use to but it is well worth it. I will never use shampoo again!!!!!!!

Because of cost, I would never buy this but I received it as a gift. I was excited to try it due to all the hype but I had my doubts.
I had mixed results. I don't color my hair, which is fine, thick and wavy - oily at the roots and dry on the ends. The first time I used it, my hair felt and looked beautiful after styling. However it went flat fairly quickly.
By the second use this stuff had built up on my hair and made it feel slightly goopy and really dragged it down. I tried using regular shampoo with the Wen as a light leave-in conditioner, but still too heavy and goopy.
I went back to regular shampoo and conditioner, and I use the Wen once every six weeks or so, when the ends of my hair start to feel dry and frizzy.
When it's gone I won't buy a replacement.

I rarely write reviews these days. But I got this bottle of Wen Pomegranate on a real deal, I had always wanted to try it, but the heft price tag always deterred me.
I read the instructions and started to pump the stuff into my palm. It says to use 15-18, but at about 13-14 I stopped, you don't really need that much! I have thick hair that goes past my shoulders and I had a sufficient amount.
I glooped it onto my wet hair, let it sit for 5 minutes like the instructions said. It didn't foam much. It certainly didn't lather. How was this going to clean my hair?
When I rinsed it out, my hair didn't feel silky smooth as it sometimes does with a conditioner full of silicones. I was a bit skeptical.
After I towel dried, I didn't add more conditioner, i only used the Wen styling creme.
I then let my hair air dry, curled it and it looked pretty good. Shiny but nothing so great.
The morning after I shampooed, I felt my hair. It was very soft and quite shiny. Two days after, the softness is still there.
I've only tried this shampoo/conditioner once, but if it keeps this up, it's really great. I have read the other reviews saying that it weighs down your hair or that it causes hair loss. I will try the bottle and update. So far so good, loving this product. Not sure it's worth the price tag, you can get other shampoos without sulfates in it these days!

First of all, I don't use the Guthy Renker version - I buy from QVC. There is a formulation difference and I think they "cheapened" up the Guthy Renker formula to make more $$. And I'm not getting my bank account tied up in their autobill crap either. I love QVC and their easy pays and their return policy! Anyway, I love the scent of this! It's fruity but not overly sweet which is wonderful for me. I didn't think I'd like the menthol but it provides a bit of balance to the scent, and I like it!!! It's not as moisturizing as the other formulas (Lavender is my HG) but I like it. I'm wondering if my hair likes the wheat based formulas better than the soy based formulas. Pomegranate and the seasonals is soybased if you were wondering.

This company is the biggest scam, and not to mention, the conditioning shampoo is a cheap and damaging product!!! I purchased one order for the sweet almond mint conditioning shampoo, deep conditioner, and conditioning mist. They included a comb, styling cream and Endless Youth vitamins as a "free gift". Little did I know I just locked myself into $280 worth of unauthorized charges to my accts. Not only did they charge my account for multiple 6-month supplies without my request, but they got a hold of my NEW debit card number AND my OTHER debit card number and then charged BOTH accts. BEWARE when you place an order, they will continue to send products and you must cancel ASAP.
As for the quality of the conditioning shampoo, it is terrible. I am not just saying this because of my experience with the 8 unauthorized charges. My hair did not improve one bit by using the product, in fact, it became even more dry. I have thick hair with blonde highlights and was looking for some daily deep conditioning to improve the dryness. My hair showed now improvement and just got even worse. The only pro was the "free" comb I received good to use in the shower with conditioner on your hair. It is a waste of money and does hair no good, especially treated hair.

I received this as a set for my birthday, and this has absolutely saved my hair! My hair is color treated and has a tendency to have oily roots, but even doing wen a few times a week alternating with shampoo has rescued my hair! I would get this again if it were not so expensive, or I would like to try something more cleansing or more suited to fine/oily roots.

My hair was fried from several of my hairdressers "projects" to lighten my medium brown hair. The ends were like a stiff hairbrush. This stuff brought my hair back to life -- literally!!!! One thing - I have noticed that some people don't like it ....I would suggest that this stuff takes a lot of patience to use. I have to rinse my hair first for about 2 minutes, then put the stuff in and massage for about 2 minutes, go about the rest of my shower, then get back to my hair and rinse out for at leat 2 minutes. My hair is perfect and soft and conditioned every time. And get this - I have hair down to the middle of my back and I no longer have to use ANYTHING on it aside from the Wen, to make it look good and feel good. I don't even use my HG Morroccan oil any more! Don't use any mousse or sprays, nuttin;' honey......... And my hair is fabulous!! Thanks, Chaz Dean!!!!
