Default Has anyone tried Wen Products from QVC?

I just got back from the salon for my monthly touchup. A lady there had beautifully curly hair (kind of like Jessi's from Jessicurl). She had brought her own products too and was using an all in one shampoo/conditioner/leave-in called Wen. She said she got it off of QVC. I looked at the ingredients and it looked to me to be CG friendly.

Has anyone tried it? I'm not a PJ and don't want to fill up my cabinet on alot of stuff I'll never use. In fact, I subscribe to the theory of VS (Virtual Simplicity) so the less products I have to use, the better --and this one sounds like it covers alot of ground.

My mom uses it, but her hair is only very slightly wavy. It's CG. I actually used the Sweet Almond Mint as a leave-in moisturizer today for the first time, underneath my Ojon Animated Styling Cream. My curls are bouncy and pretty moisturized. I think I'll do this more often.

Simplicity is best, at least for my hair. I co-wash every two days or so with the BWC and use the AOHR as a rinse-out when I need moisture. On other days, I just water wash, and I use AV gel every day to style. I air-dry and don't brush or comb my hair.

Yes. I've never used it to cleanse, though. Today I used lemon juice whisked with Suave Naturals Coconut as a cleanser, which I've been doing about once every week. I combed it through in the shower before rinsing it out. When I got out, I finger combed the WEN through my hair, then the Ojon, scrunched it a little, and let it dry. I think my mom cleanses with the WEN some days, but she also uses shampoo. Her hair always looks great...

I've used both the Wen Fig and the Wen Sweet Almond Mint. Have to say I prefer the Almond Mint because it has less menthol and less glycerin, while the SAM has more aloe vera. Both are really really good for my hair; they clean, condition and detangle in one cycle so I don't have to use a rinse-out. They even clean an Ojon/oil deep treatment out of my hair. I am also using Blended Beauty Curl Cleansing conditoner because it's cheaper, but I think the witch hazel in it is just a tad more drying. I have to use a rinse-out after.

Enablers!! Grrrrr! Now something else I want! Do you think this would be too heavy for fine 3a hair?

Yup, I'm pretty sure. I have really fine 3a/b hair. Just don't use as much as they recommend--I'd have helmet head if I did that! I only used like 3 pumps of it on my medium-length hair.

I've wanted to try it, but I try to tell myself that I don't need to buy anything else. I was doing great with the non-pjness until yesterday!

Yeah, me too! I'm really in love with JC's Too-Shea,CCSS & RR. I think I'll order some, though, to have on hand in case my JC stuff stops working.
