Default Wen haircare system

So.. they've been playing that infomercial. I have cut/pasted the ingredients list. I see an A-cone and an xane ( I highlighted)

My PJ is curious. I think I need a more moisturizing conditioner for co-washing.

Any other opinions?

My opinion can be summed up in four words: $30 for cone conditioner.

Perhaps it could be possible to compromise with a nice $7 Kiss My Face or something along those lines?

I used WEN for a while. My hair did okay -- at first -- then seemed to get weighed down. I had to use a clarifying shampoo which seemed to eradicate all of the good WEN did for my hair.

I am currently using Suave Lavendar to co-cleanse and either Giovanni Smooth as Silk or Tigi Moisture Maniac as a deeper condish/leave in. These products, along with Biotera gel, are giving me results much better than the WEN for a lot less cost. I am also not getting the residue that I seemed to get with WEN.

Also -- you have to use alot of the WEN product in your hair; for shoulder length hair, WEN recommends using 12-20 pumps of product (if you have longer hair, you are recommended to use more). I went through a 16 ounce bottle in 3 weeks.
