Most of us reach for regular shampoos that we find in the drugstore and even at fancy boutiques, unaware that these formulas are actually damaging our locks. Shampoos and conditioners often contain harmful chemicals that strip and dull our strands. That’s why popular California stylist Chaz Dean developed the no-shampoo cleansing method, and his clientele have never looked back.
The WEN system by Chaz Dean (http://www.wen.com/chaz-dean.html) features cleansing conditioners that use natural botanicals to deliver strength and shine to hair. Bustle contributor Emily McClure had it with her fine, sad locks, so she tried a 7-day WEN hair challenge to see if her hair would respond.
Emily kept a daily diary and posted selfies so her readers could see her progress. She chose the Sephora FIG cleansing conditioner, because it was designed to add moisture, shine and bounce to hair. Emily also would begin the challenge with a morning WEN wash every day to get her hair on the proper routine, even though she prefers a nighttime shower.
While in the shower, Emily massaged the Wen product in her her, noticing the great volume and softness her hair was developing. Then she blow-dried and styled her hair and was thrilled with the results.
As time went on, Emily fell into her lazy routine, once skipping the WEN cleanse altogether, because she was pressed for time. In another instance, Emily washed with WEN at night, only to awaken with surprisingly dull, flat, greasy locks. She scampered about, trying to fix her flat hair for a long day at work.
Emily’s advice to readers: If you’re lazy about hair care, then WEN might not be for you.
