Love love love this product. My hair is so dry and damaged and it is nice to finally find something that softens it. FYI I have short hair that I dye red and I only leave this on for about 3 minutes with about 9 pumps and it works just fine. I wet my hair, run some HO through it, rinse and add more product to stay in my hair while I finish my shower. Then I rinse it out and use one pump on my wet hair as a leave-in.I only wash my hair 1-2 times a week. I let it air dry and then use a straightener with Beyond the Zone Turn Up the Heat (also from Sally's) and then I run some PM Super Skinny Serum through it, Every 3 or 4 shampoos I use neutrogena clarifying shampoo and then use the hair one as usual. I have no problem with greasiness. I use the olive oil and the argan oil 50/50 and my hair feels like silk from wash to wash. I can't stop touching it. I must say that I tried WEN (and I think this is better) and returned it.. I always keep a couple of extra bottles in my cabinet. The only thing I don't like about it is the packaging the pump runs out with about 1/2 of the product left. Very wasteful. Anyway try it if you have dry and damaged hair. What do you have to lose? Sally's has an awesome return policy.

I get auto-dilivery of WEN, but hate the price. I tried Hair One for colored hair (w Jojoba)
I really had great results. Hair is soft and very manageable. My hair is just past my shoulders and has a frizzy wave on the underneath layer of my hair. With this I can blowdry it with smooth frizz free results.
It can feel dirty faster. I can usually wash every 3 days (if I don't exercise) because I do get more buildup/weighed down feeling on my hair roots by the second day then I did with WEN. However since I run 3 or 4 times a week I usually have to wash it anyway so no biggie for me.
Solution: I think since I switched to just putting in one pump as a leave in (only from halfway to ends of hair) this problem has lessened considerably.
-The price is much better than WEN.
-Follow ALL the directions and rinse COMPLETELY
-I also only use 1 pump as a leave in and only put in from halfway down to the ends NOT the roots. That seems to have helped with the second day weighed down dirty feeling.
I would recommend giving it a try. Even though you are using a lot you would use the same amount of product with WEN this is more economical.
By the way my hair is color-treated and fine to medium in texture but a lot of it.

I have very fine, stick straight hair. It's not normally greasy, but does have a tendency to get dry on the ends. I'm normally a salon-product only kind of girl, but after seeing the ad for Wen on QVC, I was really intrigued by the concept of a cleansing conditioner. I just couldn't justify the cost of Wen for the amount of product you're supposed to use with every wash. So, I looked for alternatives and found this product.
I bought the full size bottle of the jojoba formula for color-treated hair. I followed the directions on the bottle to a T the first time. I loved the tingling sensation of the menthol and the process in general. But the product didn't detangle like it said it does. It doesn't give that "slip" that I love in a good conditioner. When I was done, my hair felt tangly and dry and I had to work REALLY hard to get it brushed smooth.
After a few days of playing around with it (washing every other day), I figured out that to get the moisture I wanted in my hair, I needed to leave it in for more than the recommended 3 to 5 minutes. I needed more like 15 to get the effect I wanted. But no matter how long I left it on, I STILL had to fight with tangled mess when I got out of the shower. Even combing the product through in the shower made me feel like I was damaging my hair because even at the root it was tangled.
Once the tangles were finally combed through, the after-effect was generally positive. My hair was manageable and didn't feel residue-y like many have said. But I can't say the results were any different than shampoo/conditioning.
After going through a whole bottle, my suspicions are confirmed. Hair One caused a good bit of breakage, even though my hair normally has reasonably good elasticity and isn't prone to breakage. Will not buy again because of the damage it did.
Still, I loved the idea of co-washing and not using harsh detergents on my hair. So I kept searching and found more traditional co-washers out there who use the cheapest conditioners (like Suave and V05) that contain no icky silicones to cleanse their hair. Several days ago I gave it a shot (cost me $2 for a bottle of Suave Coconut and a bottle of V05 Champagne Kiss) and I have to tell you that it put Hair One to SHAME! NO trouble getting a comb through, felt amazing, used less product, hair is just as clean and a hundred thousand times more moisturized. PLUS NO BREAKAGE!! And didn't take me 30 mins in the shower like Hair One did because I only had to leave it in for 5 minutes.
If you want to try co-washing and don't want to pay for Wen, stick to silicone free cheapie conditioners and do your research! I'll never shampoo again.

I've been wanting to get the hair product WEN for a long time, but I thought before I made that investment I could buy a cheaper knock-off version (Hair One) and see if I could save money with the same result. Well, I saved about $10 compared to WEN, but it wasn't worth it. Really I lost money because I'm never going to use it again. I have red color treated hair and just dyed it a few days ago then bought Hair One so when washed it the color wouldn't come out. The color still came out, not as much, but enough to make me feel like what color I did save wasn't worth the cost of the shampoo. So after that I thought well, at least it smells good, not better than any other shampoo, but it doesn't smell bad. When my hair completely dried, I felt it and told myself I would never use it again, and this is the reason I will not buy it anymore. It made my hair extremely greasy and stuck to my hair. When I run my fingers through it, it's worse than if I wouldn't have washed it, it just feels dirty and I will not go out looking like this! I'm really sad because I had hope this product would work ok and every woman like to save money, but this one is just a waste.

I tried this, like others, before trying Wen because its so expensive. I am just not impressed at all, plus it makes my hair fall out. I notice a lot more shedding when using this product than I do when using regular shampoo. You need to use SO much product and work it into your hair SO much honestly its just way too much effort for such an incredibly mediocre result.

i've been wanting to try Wen,but since its kinda expensive i decided to try this product first to see how i feel about cleansing conditioner because i have oily hair,this is the first time i tried it,and i didnt notice any difference from regular shampoo,i tried the cucumber one,although my hair is so damaged from bleach,but it left my hair as if i had washed it with regular shampoo,and it takes a lot of time to apply,and you have to apply alot of product,and it says it has natural ingredients so i was expecting a more "natural" scent,but it smells like artificial fragrance, and the smell is so strong that its annoying

I guess you have to have very dry hair for Hair One to work. I bought the cucumber version on a whim, because I've heard how bad sulfates are for the hair.
Note: My hair is NOT color-treated or permed. It's normal, with more of a tendency towards oiliness than dryness.
Anyway, I bought the cucumber version and tried it out. It takes a LOT of time, much more time than a regular shampoo-conditioner routine. I found it extremely difficult to rinse it all out of my hair. Afterwards, my hair, which is wavy and usually has quite a bit of body, was very limp and felt greasy. It was very, very greasy by the next day and completely flat to my scalp. I tried the Hair One again, with the same results.
After that, I decided there wasn't any point in a shampoo that left my hair, in effect, dirtier than when I started. I'll stick to regular shampoos and conditioners.

This is the first time I have used Hair One (the generic version of Wen from Sally's). I purchased the sample packet for color treated hair. I applied it mostly at the scalp region, using my finger tips to reach under my hair and lightly massaged. I did apply a cap and leave it on about the recommended two minutes, then thoroughly rinsed. I chose to apply a tiny bit of conditioner to my ends. As usual, I allowed my hair to air-dry, and I am most impressed by the results--shiny, full, not coated-looking and feels clean. Not sure how much this products preserves color but can ascertain better with time. I will update as I continue to use this product. Build-up could become a problem but maybe not. BTW, my hair is bleached to a fare-thee-well. EDIT: It has been five weeks since I started using Hair One, and I still have no build-up. My last shampoo is the first time I used extra Hair One on my ends instead of my usual conditioner. Not as soft but definitely OK. My scalp is much healthier with far less itching or dandruff spots--something I thought Hair One might worsen. My toner color still looks pretty good although I am approaching time to do my roots again. Still impressed. EDIT II: It has been 2-1/2 months since I started using Hair One. My scalp is healthier than it has been in years and there is still no build-up or weighting own of my hair, The condition is great for my very bleached hair, and I have not used a heat cap & conditioner since I started Hair One. When applying, it does have a "menthol" fume but it is mild and does not impart the scent to hair once it is dry. Even more convenient, my hair does not get lank and greasy-looking nearly as soon and I can now shampoo once weekly and have fresh-looking hair in between. When the product gets low and is not pumping effectively, just remove the pump top, turn the bottle upside down, and shake out the amounts you need.

I have thick, coarse, color treated hair and this really helps keep it from turning into ummm...well....hay. I only wash my hair with shampoo about once a week. The rest of the time I use this and my hair feels soft and clean and looks very healthy. I've tried WEN and this works just as well.

I love and swear by WEN however it is expensive and i tend to run out quickly. This is NOT better than WEN its more like its cheaper cousin if i had to relate the two products. Its with the $9 or $10 because i will say i think its better than shampoo and conditioner. I color my hair red and i can say that after washing with this product it didnt look like the usual crime scene that comes with washing red hair with shampoo and conditioner (even if they are for colored hair)
so. Not as good as WEN but better than shampoo and conditioner. Ill probably re purchase. What the heck.

I wanted to try WEN but did not want to bite the bullet cost wise. I read about it in a magazine and decided to try it. This product was half the price. I have shoulder length medium thick hair that curls easily and frizzes on most occasions. I color my hair too. Root touch up every 2 weeks all over color every 6 weeks. I also run and I don't want to use shampoo on my hair daily when I shower. This product has proven to be great for the in-between days. It leaves my hair feeling smooth and through this brutal mid-west summer I managed the frizz. There is some scalp build up. On the days I use regular shampoo I use the Hair One as a leave in. I am using the Olive Oil formula for dry hair.

This product works great on my dry ethnic hair so Bre 23 if you have thin hair you cant give an opinion on my type of hair.This product is ideal for my hair because I have dry hair most shampoos dry out my hair but a person with oily hair like my hubbie likes his hair to be squeaky clean so the Hair One for dry hair wouldnt work for him.I love it because it doesnt strip the oils out of my already dry scalp...just make sure you try the one for your hair type. :)

I like this product very much. For reference, I have fine, straight, color treated hair that gets oily very fast. I have a lot of gray hair right at my hairline and Iím constantly dyeing my roots. Since my hair is so fine, I found myself washing it daily and of course, fading my color-resistant gray roots faster than I could keep up with. And so, I decided to try this as an alternative to shampooing, in hopes that it would be more gentle on my color. I was skeptical at first because most reviews described the product line as being very moisturizing. On my hair this usually translates to GREASY! (Iím usually not satisfied unless I have tons of lather in my hair to wash out the greasies). And so I decided to sparingly use the product. I used less than the recommended number of pumps but was careful to massage it into my scalp, adding just a bit of warm water to my hair to really make it creamy. In total, I use 8-9 pumps, no more or my hair really does get limp and oily right away. To my very pleasant surprise, I can go three days without washing my hair if I stick to just 8-9 pumps. I use Batiste dry shampoo in between to add some body and texture to my hair and that works like a charm. My hair is full and soft. It sometimes looks a little less shiny but a light leave-in conditioner every few washes restored the shine for me. I use the Jojoba formula and will definitely purchase again.

While I like a lot of things about this product, there are a few problems that kill it for me. I love the scent, it feels fabulous in my hair while I'm shampooing, my hair feels and looks great (at first) when it is dry and it is sulfate free. However, you need to use an exorbitant amount of product per shampoo, it still contains the dreaded "cones", and you just don't get enough product for the price, considering how much you have to use. I've washed my hair with it a handful of times and I've already gone through 1/3 of the bottle.
Personally, I feel like it just can't keep up with my active life style. I live in the heat and humidity, I have an active job that often gets me really sweaty, plus I run for exercise most days of the week. The first couple of times I used this shampoo, my hair looked great. However, when I tried to use it after a couple of particularly sweaty days, when my hair dried it still looked kind of greasy, which was a big disappointment considering how much I was ready to love this stuff.
I feel like this shampoo would be prefect for someone who lives in a less-sweat inducing climate and has a less physical life style where they can get away with not washing their hair every day (or every other day) and wont give the shampoo as much of a challenge. I'm going to keep it around til I finish the bottle for washing my hair on days where I've been less active, but I'm searching for something else to take care of my hair the rest of the time.

Ok first off, I have VERY thin hair- genetics, styling and blow drying everyday, highlighting my hair, etc. You get the picture. Needless to say I started using WEN 2 yrs ago and was hooked. After 2 months of using it my hair was COMPLETELY different, it looked full and healthy. However my wallet book started looking like my hair prior to using WEN, thin and scary. So naturally when I heard of Hair One I was elated, went to Sallys and snagged a bottle. Keep in mind I ALWAYS give a product a two week trial, when you go from a shampoo that uses sulfates or any kind of detergent, your oil glands adjust creating more oil to compensate for the oil you are stripping it of. (In between WEN and Hair One I switched to Redkin for a few months) So with my previous experience switching to a "cleansing conditioner" from a detergent shampoo I already knew the first week my hair was gonna be... um... less than desirable. And it was, looked oily, flat, and frizzy at ends, BUT at about 12 days of using it my hair chilled out With producing all that excess darn oil and my ends looked thicker and healthier. Yay! It's been about a month and a half of using Hair One and I am satisfied with it. Identical to WEN at a fraction of the cost, plus I think it has a more pleasant scent than WEN had! Haha take that Chaz Dean! HOWEVER, in my personal opinion and reading hundreds of reviews, Hair One AND WEN work wonders for hair like myself-THIN and in need of serious TLC, but not so well with thick or ethnic hair unfortunately.

OMG THIS IS THE WORST EVER! I have used Wen before and my hair was great but when i switch to hair one (because of the price) my hair started falling off. A friend of mines (she never tried Wen) tried it too and her hair was falling off too. This cannot compare to Wen or even regular shampoo. BUYERS BEWARE!! You might think it has the same ingredients as Wen but there has to be something in HAIR ONE product that makes hair fall off.

Great for those who have: dry/itchy scalps, color treated hair (no sulfate), those who like to wash their hair every day, damaged hair, or hair lacking moisture, good for those trying to grow out their hair and its all natural ingredients.
Downside: for thin hair it will weigh it down :/, pump stops working after about 3/4 of the product has been used, and it can be a tad bit expensive to use consistantly because you have to use so much of it everytime you wash.
I love it though because yes its very natural and has no sulfates (i'm allergic to sulfur and any other branches of the chemical i.e. sulfates.) and it has worked REALLY well at controlling my psorisis! And my hair is soooo soft. And my hair has been growing very healthy and long.
My solution for the weigh down is to wash my hair with a clarifying shampoo once a week (I use Pravana Sulfate-free Clarifying shampoo, but theres one by Ion for color treated hair that works just as good at any Sally Beauty Supply itll be in a clear purlple bottle) and then I deep condition my hair after I shampoo it and it really helps with the weigh down.
All in all its really worth trying.

Honestly I really don't care for it but I don't full on hate it. I am not a fan of menthol in it. It tends to irritate my skin in the long run. Also I am not a fan of the texture. Kind of hard to spread evenly, even when I warm it up in my hands. Plus when you get closer to the bottom, it becomes harder to pump out. The tea tree oil version irritated my scalp and face. On the plus side, it does cleanse my scalp without drying out my hair.

I really wanted to love this product but the results were pretty bad. I bought the jojoba variety for color treated hair and followed the directions exactly.
-I liked the smell. A little minty, a little earthy. I much preferred it to all the fake fruity scents out there.
-Pretty moisturizing. It helped calm my curly/wavy hair.
-Price. I know this is way cheaper then Wen, but it's still just a conditioner. There are tons of others out there for less.
-Left my roots looking dirty the same day I washed. Not terrible greasy, but not clean either.
-Canopy frizz. Little hairs started poking up as the day went on. I'm guessing from all the glycerin.
-Tons of shedding. This was the real deal breaker for me. I had every intention of using the entire bottle of this before making up my mind, but on only the second washing I was shedding way more than normal. I don't know if it's an ingredient or all the manipulation from the way you're supposed to use it or what. Since I'm already paranoid about my hairline being too thin I'm not about to take any chances.
-Packaging. I hadn't planned on adding this, but I think it deserves mentioning. The bottle is opaque so you can't see how much you have left and the pump dispenses way too little product. Two or three big pumps would certainly be nicer than 10 tiny ones.

I can't believe I bought Hair One thinking it was special. I followed all the directions, and my wavy hair still looked frizzy. The only nice thing about this is that it smells good.
