I needed so much product, it made my hair flat and greasy, and I feel like it wouldn't fully rinse out. I hate this stuff so much I had to take another shower after my hair dried to rinse it out.

I was thinking of trying this until I went onto PISSED CONSUMER.COM. Please read everything these consumers are saying about the product before you buy. This is my WARNING to all.

I've used a lot of conditioners for co-washing over the last decade, but this one is the first one I've disliked. I went into Sephora looking for another brand and was steered towards this. It smelled wonderful in the store, and so I bought it, even though I wasn't 100% happy with a couple of the ingredients (which are, by the way, nothing spectacular, despite the hefty price tag). The bottle I brought home smelled a great deal different from the product I sampled in the store. What I got smells medicine-y, like cough drops. But I gave it a fair shake. Three washes later, my 3A curls formed a giant poofball. OK, maybe it's the weather? Washed my hair with the kids' shampoo, massaged a lot of jojoba oil into my hair and scalp -- hair is soft, silky and just downright nice. Two washes with Wen later, I'm back to frizzy, giant poofball. Hair is not silky. Repeat this phenomenon two more times, and I'm convinced it's the Wen Cleansing Conditioner. Fair shake time over, this one's going in the can.

Smells like cough syrup!! Got a variety kit from QVC and this was the worst smelling one. Pump doesn't work when you get down to 1/4 left in bottle. Only pro after using 4 small bottles was it kept my color.

First time trying Wen. Have tried L'Oreals and Hair One's versions of cleansing conditioners. I still think L'Oreal's is my favorite because of how hydrating it is. This is good and I want to experiment more with it as I have done the others, which, by the way, Hair One is my least favorite of all of them. One thing I hate about this particular formula is the scent, which is like cherry cough syrup and is just atrocious. I also have the Fall Ginger Pumpkin which smells heavenly but is supposedly not as hydrating as the Fig. I shall experiment with that also and update.

For someone who has been co-washing for several years, this is a cleansing conditioner that I actually feel confident using. My scalp and roots feel fresh, but my hair is hydrated and soft, and my curls look amazing. This formula is definitely the best one for my hair needs, I just really wish it didn't smell like Fig.

Wen is not worth the money ladies so don't waste it!!! I have been using it for 3 years & my hair is flat, lifeless, dull & has built up on it. I am switching to Sallys One N Only Argan Oil which gets raving reviews. And once a week I am going to use Suave Naturals which is fabulous shampoo btw to rid any build up from not using traditional shampoo. So do not waste your money on Wen, it's a complete gimic. It doez make your hair soft but that's about it

I recently moved and in my bathroom I now have a tub/shower combo instead of just a shower. My old shower had a very large drain so the water never backed up. I recently bought a a haircatcher and it causes the water to go out very slowly. When I use WEN ( I have Lavender, Pumpkin, Fig and WEN 613), there is very thick gross residue left in the tub. I have to take a rag and wipe the tub out before cleaning it. It got me to thinking about what it does to my hair. When I use WEN, I always make sure I clarify my hair, but I can't imagine how much residue is left on my hair from week to week. Not to mention all the crap it leaves in the pipes.
I'm sorry, this stuff cannot be good for your hair.
WEN is amazing! Period. It made my hair super soft without being mushy or coated. It doesn't smell good to me and the menthol seemed a bit strong, but the results are worth it. I'm relaxed and color treated so moisture/protein balance is important to me so I will be continue to use protein conditioners as well as clarifying, but WEN is now a staple. I've tried Hair One and there is no comparison. One thing I'd also say is to make sure you clarify if you're going to use WEN. It's so moisturizing that I could see moisture balance becoming a problem.
Update: I have a 32 oz bottle. I've washed my hair 3 times using about 25 pumps each wash. My botte is a little less than 1/4 gone. I like WEN but it's too expensive. Normally a 32oz bottle of conditioner lasts me at least a couple of times. I do use them in rotation but I am heavy handed. So I'm going to keep WEN in my stash but only use it as a cowash and not a cleanser. It'd be gone way too quick if I were to use all the pumps they tell you to.
Update: This stuff is so goood on my hair! I have to keep buying it! Being relaxed and color treated, moisture is my whale. Fig gives me the moisture I need. I've found moisture like this in other conditioners, but they have parabens which I'm getting rid of in my products.
Update: This stuff is the best! I don't use it everytime to wash my hair, but I use it as a leave in each and everytime. WEN is def worth the money.
Update: I used it on my dd's natural hair and it sucked. I'm better off using Aussie Moist on her natural hair.

When a product is as hyped as "Wen", and I don't like it, I tend to doubt myself. Maybe I didn't use it properly..Maybe I didn't buy the right formula for my hair. So I've tried Wen on more than a few occasions, switching formulas, making sure I used enough pumps and rinsed like I was being graded on it. What I found was this: consistent use of Wen and only Wen left me with hair that felt dirty and stiff (trying to think of a better antonym for soft). It didn't matter if I used Fig, Sweet Almond Mint, etc. I also don't like the fact that this product contains menthol. I would never put menthol on my face or skin, knowing how it can irritate skin, so I don't want it in my hair care either. Thank god I didn't experience hair loss as some others have reported. I say save your money. There are plenty of good options at the drugstore and in the last few years there has been a real boon in the sulfate free department. My current favorites come from Suave and Tresemme. Can't beat the price.

Wen cleansed as promised but I had to follow up w/ another conditioner. I enjoyed the tingle on the scalp but my hair did not seam to benefit. The fig formula is supposed to work with thick curly hair and my hair just laughed at it. I did find that it worked very well on straight hair. My husband has straight thin hair and his hair looks great after using this. Like I said before this product cleanses but did not replace a conditioner, detangler, or leave in. However I like it as a shave gel.
