Finally, my chance to try WEN Cleansing Conditioner is here!

Ever since the early days of this blog, I've sang the wonderful praises of Hair One Conditioning cleanser. For those of you who aren't in the know, Hair One is a cleanser that doesn't lather and strip the hair like conventional shampoos. I've received emails from some of you asking about how to increase moisture levels in the hair. For me, Hair One was a huge addition to my overall moisture regimen. Once I started using a conditioning cleanser, I was finally able to sync every step in my routine to focus on creating/maintaining moisture.

Even though I'm head over heels in love with the results I get with Hair One, I still can't help but consider if I'd get an even better experience by using WEN products. You guys may have seen the informercials featuring various women with lustrous hair thanks to the help of WEN Hair Care System. I've put it off for long enough and I feel I have to finally give in to my curiosities and give WEN a shot just to say I did. Not to mention the fact that my hair could benefit if WEN is indeed a superior product.

So one of the pluses of Hair One is the accessibility and, of course, the price. Any local Sally's store stocks up to four varieties of the conditioning cleanser. And at around $11.00/bottle, Hair One has a huge cost advantage over WEN. Amazon or QVC are pretty much your main source for WEN products. A 30-day supply kit will run you around $30.00. Not knowing if WEN was superior enough to Hair One to justify the price, I never took the plunge. That is until now......

I seem to have stumbled upon a really amazing offer to purchase the same 30-day supply which includes the cleansing conditioner, styling creme, and Intenstive Remoist Hair Repair Mask for just $5.99! Yes, you heard me right, I said $5.99 (plus $5.99 shipping and handling). You should also know that this is considered an introductory offer which automatically enrolls you to receive the 90 day supply shipped to your home every three months for $29. 95 a month. Of course, if you are not happy with your product, you can contact their customer support line and let them know you would not like to continue with the 90 day enrollment program.

I don't know about you guys but this offer, to me, just seems to good to refuse. Finally, I get a chance to try WEN for myself so I can really see if Hair One really is the one. Of course you guys know this experiment will lead to a "Battle of the Cleansing Conditioners" post at a later time.

  1. I think your hair will love it. I've been using the fig variety for years now. I tried Hair One and only used a third of a bottle before going back to Wen.

  2. That is an excellent deal - I have been wanting to try this so badly!! But I hear the FIG is best for hair that tends to be dry and the sweet almond mint is for "normal" hair - did you get the FIG? Looks like they only offer the Sweet Almond Mint in that great deal! :(

  3. I heard the same thing about the Fig, Mawiyah. It looks like we don't have much of a choice with this one. Beggars can't be choosers I guess. If the mint works well, I'll no doubt get the fig.

  4. I'm anxiously waiting for your reveiw... I too now have the chance to try Wen as it is finally available in my country, but the price is indeed "ggfhggfffghf wha??" in a few weeks my mom will be buying and sending me my products... looks like your review will be the final deciding factor

  5. Girl_Incognito, I've ordered and it should arrive soon. I honestly hope there's little to no difference between the two so I don't have to spend $30 on shampoo going forward.

  6. About price: On QVC, today only, you can purchase a 32 oz bottle of WEN for three payments of $14.00! About product: I have tried both. I was a WEN user and thought I'd give H/One a shot. I had consistently better results with WEN. However, I would say that as a leave-in conditioner, I like to mix the WEN with the Hair One. I've used all the WEN scents and they all provide different results. Fig, by fair is the best for moisturizing. Cucumber Aloe best for clarifying, Tea Tree for dry scalp. Pomegranate just launched this weekend. Before you make a final choice, I'd try the other blends.

  7. Thanks for the heads up, Anon. I'll have to get the Fig as well just to make it a fair battle. Thanks for sharing the QVC deal. I'll have to check it out.

  8. Hope you love it...I do! I am about to get the Sally's generic to replace my old bottle (cheaper!). I haven't used it in awhile. Mawiyah is right, I got the fig and it was great.

  10. Hi Anon- Sorry for the delay in reviewing but to be honest, I'm not really a fan of the Mint version of WEN. So I decided to hold off my review until I get to use the Fig that way it's a fair battle. Someone from WEN actually contacted me about advertising on my blog. In my response, I asked for a free sample of the Fig and never heard back. I guess I have to pay for it myself.

  11. I tried the deal. Though the website came up with the great price in my cart, after I entered all my information it said my cart was empty. And it tried to direct me back to the webite to pay full price. I tried twice. This doesn't work.
