I got this little zombie out of a crane machine at the Wal-mart, isn't he cute, lol. Also, not a great shot of the nails, but it's Sinful Colors in Savage, it's a super awesome teal blue, LOVE, then some of the new Pure Ice glitters I think in It's Complicated and Dazzle Me, there was a huge display at Walmart, I'm glad they finally came out with some new colors.
Ok so enough of that, onto the real reason I wanted to post today. I've been wanting to try Wen for the longest time, I've been seeing it on the informercials and QVC for years. I actually tried the Hair One from Sally's, it's a cheaper alternative and I liked it for a few uses and then discontinued it to a shave cream. I tend to get bored with hair products, and even though I think it will also happen with Wen, I still had to try it, so I ordered off the website. It was a 29.95 deal,no shipping, that included the cleansing conditioner and free gifts. I ordered it I think the 31st of Jan. and received it this Saturday morning, I was so excited I had to wash my hair right then, even though it was clean.
Ok so, this is what I received, (from left to right) Sweet Almond Mint Anti-Frizz Styling Cream, Volumizing Root Lift, Replenishing Treatment Mist, SIXTHIRTEEN Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Treatment, and the Cleansing Conditioner, they all smell very good. I think it's a pretty good deal for 30 dollars, if it's as amazing as it's supposed to be. The gifts I got are not the same as the ones I was promised, but I'm ok with it.
So I had to use it immediately, I was already dressed so I just did the hang over the bathtub wash with the detachable shower head. So my hair is pretty long, it recommends 24-32 pumps for long hair, pssshhhh, that's like half the bottle, so I pumped out 10, which looked like a good amount, and added 2 pumps of the SIXTHIRTEEN bc you're supposed to add it in. It's...different, like trying to scrub conditioner onto your scalp, but the massage is supposed to be the essential part I think, so I massaged for a minute and let it set for 2 minutes more, finger-combing it through. It felt like I rinsed forever, my hair did feel pretty good wet, I also added a pump of conditioner as a leave in after I rinsed.
I towel dried for a minute, added the replenishing mistand styling cream, and normally I would let it dry natural, but I had to go out, so I had to blow dry, I tried to use a big round brush for a mo but it just nevers works for me like they do at the salon, so I just did my normal thing and got it all dry, it looked pretty good aside from a little frizz, but that's just what happens when I blow dry, it died down pretty fast though, and it was soooo shiny. I also threw in some of the root lift powder, just to use it all once, I didn't feel like it did much though.
I couldn't really capture it well in a picture, this one is a little blurry. A couple hours in, it looked amazing, like really amazing and for the rest of the day as well, I got a few compliments on how good my hair looked. You're supposed to be able to go longer without washing with Wen, I usually go every other day with my regular shampoo. On day 2 it still looked and felt pretty good, but I didn't want it in my face, so I did a side braid, but I think it would've been ok down again. Today is day 3, I was hoping I could go 3 days, but it's not feeling so great, not as greasy as it normally would on day 3, but still, pretty gross.
So, I think I'm gonna use Wen as my weekend product, bc I work in a dirty warehouse all week with my hair up and I feel like it would be a waste, and it will last me longer that way too. When you order this package, you get put on subscription so if you don't call and cancel they take it out of your account every month with shipping, and continue to send you more. I'm going to cancel it, I like it, but I know I can't commit, I've read a lot of reviews that they give you a hard time about cancelling, then continue to harass you after, so we shall see what happens. Update! So I just called to cancel and the only thing is that I couldn`t understand anything they were saying, it was loud and overloading the whole time. She kept trying to get me to continue ordering but I was firm on cancelling finally she asked for my email for confirmation on cancelling and said goodbye, I havent recreceived an email yet so i don`t know.
Thanks for reading!
