I can’t be the only person that gets sucked into watching infomercials at 3am, right? Some of my late night purchases include the Magic Bullet, a ShamWow, 2 Snuggies, and The Perfect Brownie Pan. And those are just the ones I’m not too embarrassed to tell you about. Thank goodness I discovered Ambien or else I would really have to consider blocking QVC.
I’ll never forget the night I was flipping through the channels and came across the super fabulous Chas Dean talking to Alyssa Milano about how he was about to transform her hair with Wen Cleaning Conditioner. My life has never been the same. Ok, thats an exaggeration but my hair has never been the same since that night. Almost three years ago I ordered my first bottle of Sweet Almond Mint Wen at 4am and I have been on auto-ship ever since.
Despite what you may think, it DOES clean your hair and won’t weigh it down as long as you follow the instructions. Here’s what I do:
1. Before getting in the shower, brush your hair to get all the tangles out.
2.Rinse your hair for a long time before applying Wen. If you listen to music, rinse for the entire length of one song.
3. Section your hair into two parts: top and bottom. It says you have to apply about 35896 pumps to your hair, but I only do about 4 or 5 for each section and it works great.
4. Here’s the part a lot of people skip: as you’re working it into your hair, add a little bit more water, comb through, and then clip it on top of your head while you do all the stuff girls do in the shower.
5. Once I’m ready to get out of the shower I unclip my hair and rinse it by section (I do top and bottom). Again, rinse for a LONG time and if you’re brave, use cold water.
I don’t know the science behind Wen, nor do I really care to be honest. All I know is that since using it my hair has grown twice as fast and my color lasts way longer. I recommend using a clarifying shampoo like Pantene Purifying Shampoo or Oribe Ultra Gentle Shampoo once a week, but other than the only time I use regular shampoo on my hair anymore is when I run out of my Wen and have no other choice.
