Wen....really?

Looking at QVC TSV.....Wen products. Can someone who has used them please tell me, are they all that? I am usually a marketers dream but I am skeptical about washing my fine hair and getting any volume.

When it was really popular about a year ago I had several friends who used it. 3 out of 4 of them had larger than normal hair loss.

I wouldn't use it.

I knew someone who used it and her hair started falling out. In chunks. Don't use it.

It depends on your hair type. I have very thick naturally curly hair and I have not used anything but Wen products since I discovered them about 4 or 5 years ago. My friend tried Wen products and hated them, said it made her thin/fine hair look stringy and oily. I know they make products now for extra body but I really think Wen products were originally designed for people with thick or unruly hair. Shampoo is so drying and harsh on my hair and ever since I've been using Wen it is so much more relaxed and easy to style. I would think if you have flat or fine hair you don't want something to make it relax.

I've used WEN products exclusively for 18 months. I couldn't be happier. My hair is in better shape than any other time in my life.

I use a product that's like Wen but 1/2 the price. It's called Hair One. I love it and it has made such a difference to my very curly hair. I think they have one for straight hair.

Like any other product, it works well for some but not for others. My daughter used it and it was no better than cheaper products she's used.

I've used WEN for over a year exclusively and I love it. My hair is fine and was falling out until I started WEN now it is thickening up and I constantly have new growth.

I was tempted to try it after watching a long informercial one evening. So I jumped online to read reviews, there were 1000's. Too many bad ones for me to be swayed to give it a shot.

This morning I got an email that Wen is now debuting for PETS!

Don't buy Ojon. I bought it once and it smelled terrible. I washed my hair and went to work, I couldn't stand it. Couldn't wait to get home to wash with something else.

I use it...have for two years and love it!
My hair is fine and it is much thicker and has so much volume.
I can't stand to use regular shampoo---when hair stylist does hair.
I have tried cowashing with conditioner....don't like that.
Have tried sulfate free shampoo---don't like them.

I will continue to use Wen. I haven't had or heard of anyone with hair falling out until today....but with all products there are the good and bad reviews.
