I live in Washington, and because of the humidity, my hair is a giant frizzy mess. It seems to reek havoc on my hair. I have spent years upon years trying to grow my hair out long, and because of the severe heat damage I caused with my old straighteners, my hair was so dry, and covered in split ends…
Every time I went for a trim in the past, it felt like my stylist had to take so much off just to get rid of the damage. For that one reason, my hair was never able to grow out and remained the same length for such a long time. I was stuck in a self perpetuating cycle. The humidity made the frizzies, which made me flat iron them out, which damaged my hair, which made it remain short, and because I hated the way my hair was, I continued to straighten it every day.
I have mentioned in previous reviews about how much I love my Instyler. That nifty little styling tool was my saving grace when it came to those nasty little frizzies. But although I have my awesome Instyler, there are still some days I like to let my hair go naturally and show off my waves. As long as I was using my regular shampoo and conditioner, that was never a possibility because my hair was still frizzy.
My favorite time using Wen, has to be the first time I tried it. Because I wanted to start everything off on a fresh note, I had decided the first thing I should do was get a trim. That way I could notice the full effect of Wen on some healthy undamaged hair. As soon as my Wen arrived, I booked my appointment with my stylist and proudly brought my Wen with me. It smelled so amazing, it was almost like a mini aromatherapy session right in the salon. I honestly don’t know if there is anything better than having a stylist wash your hair and give you that amazing scalp massage.
When my hair was all trimmed and styled, I almost couldn’t even recognize myself. It looked so light, soft and silky. It looked healthy! For once in my life, I had amazing hair and I couldn’t wait to show it off!
I have been using my Wen for nearly 6 months and in that time I have been fully converted. I have healthy, gorgeous, long hair now, and I wouldn’t give it up for anything. I honestly don’t think I could go back to using anything other than Wen ever again. Since November, I have noticed a dramatic change in the lack of damage to my hair. This, to me, is a huge deal. Especially since I regularly dye and straighten my hair.
Because of Wen, my hair is no longer straw like, or dry and even the color in my hair has improved. Because I regularly dye my hair, I used to notice that about two weeks after coloring, the color eventually washed all the way out. Leaving it to actually resemble the color of straw. Now that I use Wen, my color stays and I can finally feel comfortable in letting my hair dry naturally, without worrying about frizzies. I can finally show off my naturally beautiful wavy hair. My waves are more defined, they are wavier, and they are just so soft and smooth. I actually get compliments just about every time I go wavy. Now that I am able to reduce the amount of heat damage from styling tools, the old self perpetuating damage cycle is OVER. For once, I love my hair, and for once it is finally long.
I actually just got my hair cut again, about a month or so ago…. I brought my Wen to my stylist again and had my hair cut and styled as he had done about a year before. Just recently I watched the instructional video on YouTube for the first time. To my surprise, my stylist had actually done the same thing to my hair, giving me gorgeous hair, with some light curls at the ends, some body, all with NO styling agents! No curling iron, no hair spray, no mousse, no gel. My hair was outstanding all on its own. Just a blow-dryer and a round hair brush. I have to say the product is a bit pricey, but well worth it.
Wen, to me, means beauty, It means confidence, and it means strength.
Whenever I think of Wen, I think of beautiful, soft, and silky hair.
What has it done for me? Wen has given me an amazing new self image. Something I only wished I had as a teen and young adult. I feel beautiful everyday because of Wen.
