I used WEN for 2+ years and now my hair is falling out by the handsfull. I don't know what to do. I quit using WEN products. I'm so afraid it won't stop falling out. Any suggestions?

The product was fine, the customer service was not. After I received my first shipment I called to cancel the automatic shipments. I had a long conversation with the rep. in which she said several times, 'We are sorry to lose you as a customer."...to which I replied several times, "I like the product, I will buy it again, but I don't want automatic shipments."....Seriously, we did this at least 4 times. After that I even ordered the product, being charged the shipping, and did not sign up again for auto shipments. Then, one day, I received an auto shipment. I called to ask why and to tell them I had already cancelled auto shipments. That rep. told me that all she could do was take out my credit card info. and that in my file the previous rep. had written, "customer understands that automatic shipments will continue"..??????? After that experience I received an online survey from 'Chaz Dean' asking me to review my customer service experience.....I did, and wrote just what I wrote here. No response from 'Chaz Dean'....but I am not surprised. I do have a notice now from them saying that I failed my obligation to them...right. I would have been happy if there had even been an acknowledgment of any misunderstanding.

The product was okay and was willing to keep trying it, although I did not see any noticeable improvement, however, there are hidden charges and I ended up paying approximately $110 for products I thought I was paying $52 for. Lesson learned, never again.

I called to give a new address and they didn't put it in their system. Instead they shipped to our old address. I called to follow up on my shipment and they had no record of the old address (where they shipped a pkg in June) and no record of the new address (that we just gave them an hour earlier, for the 2nd time). I hear the agents laughing and joking in the background. very unprofessional. I won't deal with them anymore. Now i have to go to my bank and change cards to insure they don't charge anything (from the account they can't find).

I ordered the trial kit for 29.95.. I tried the products that were sent shampoo/conditioner etc. It stripped my hair of all oils and moisture. My hair became extremely dry and frizzy. I was going to return the left over product however I was told I would have to pay the shipping cost od returning it, so it was not worth the hassle besides I felt I was not receiving a" full refund" if I had to pay to ship it back to them. Do not waste your money the product did not meet tthe claims they make in their advertisements.

I ordered the product through their website. I kept the introductory package to try it. It did not work well with my hair, so when a second shipment arrived, (about 4 weeks later), I returned it, and cancelled. The company has continued to charge my credit card for the past 7 months! Twice in some months! After calls, letters, an affidavit to state that I did not in fact receive any further shipments, and additional email correspondence, the company is giving me only a partial refund, which has not been posted to my credit card. I feel that it was a rip-off, since it has cost me almost three hundred dollars to try a product, that I didn't even like!

When I heard that this products does an amazing outcome to your hair! I went for it! Ordered a lot in ebay ! And I mean, I have spent some quality dollars! They are not CHEAP!! But using it for a mere 3 months , I have noticed that my hair is becoming nappy and brittle! Like it's been neglected ! Specially in the back where I lay my head on the pillow! I have used the almond mint products! And I hated the outcome! I have decided to wash my hair with Joico since my hair is becoming ugly and dull and so frigid and heavy!! And when I stopped using wen my hair went back to normal ! Light and breezy and not nappy and dull! Wen products is only for a few months! Don't believe the raucous that you can only use conditioner! That's just a b/s advertisement! You do need to wash your hair! period!!! I am angry that wen advertisements is a false pretense! Really?? I still have a lot of his products sitting in my now closet!!! Unused!!! Don't fall for this trap! Wen products is not good! It's just one of those bait for your big wallet!!

I have read all of the comments on here and agree with those who say you HAVE GOT TO FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS! I do not have greasy or dandruff hair from this product. I have shoulder length, chemically treated, curly, colored hair that can sometimes be oily after not washing for two days. I have found that this shampoo does not lather BUT does detangle my hair and you MUST rinse it very well and use enough of the shampoo. It may seem like you are using too much but you aren't. With my shoulder length hair, I have to use 3 pumps for each section. I don't take a comb in the shower to section it out. I just do it with my hands. I wash my body, then add a little water to my hair massage my scalp and rinse it clean. PERFECT! There IS a auto ship and they DO take it out for 3 mos and you CAN change the auto ship from once a quarter to twice a year. If you buy salon shampoo, then this is NO MORE EXPENSIVE!

I used the entire 30 day bottle and was hooked! It took me a few weeks to see total results. I have the thickest, dry/frizzy hair. Wen, Almond Mint totally calmed and softened my hair. I did auto ship the first time with a preload debit card. Then I ran out and wanted to get some more so bad that I used my regular debit card. The thing is that I didn't know next shipment would be 98 dollars, and it would be split in 3 payments. That part was misleading. But honestly, it's almost worth it. I love how it makes my hair feel. I have to use a lot. I'm glad I read that QVC sells the gallons w/no auto ship. I think I might try that next time.

First I would like to say that I wish this product were not being rated by mixing up the reviews of the product itself with reviews of the various ways people signed up to purchase it. I haven't been using it long enough to know if I signed on to one of the scam websites (I certainly hope not!) and Chaz definitely needs to check up on what companies he is allowing to market his products if he really cares as much about his customers as he says. However, that is a whole different story from the actual products. On to the product, which I am more than happy with. I have rather thin, short, curly, color treated hair; and by the time I used to be done with styling products to try to get some volume, the color always looked much darker than it should have and my hair looked stringy rather than full. Now that I have been using several of the Wen products for several weeks, the color looks as light as it should, my hair looks full around my face instead of stringy, and it stays that way all day no matter what the weather conditions. So...I am really happy with the products and I do recommend trying them. Just be sure to read all the small print on whatever site you are buying them from so you won't get in a financial trap as others seems to have, or--probably the best advice, given all of the discussion here already--just by what you need for one round and don't commit to a long-term set-up until you know whether you like the products or not.

I've only used Wen for 2 weeks and LOVE the way my hair turns out and feels! If you follow the directions your hair will turn out fine. I ordered once from QVC and have had no problems. I did not use the auto delivery so I can order any time I want. LOVE this product and have recommended it to several of my friends.

I've used Wen for over 2 years now and couldn't be happier. When I first purchased the product I felt the way some of the others who wrote reviews...hair felt weighed down, greasy, etc. I changed how much product I used, made adjustments in the styling products, etc., and now I wouldn't switch products for anything. I even got my husband using this now! I've been using the original Almond Mint (I bought the gallon size thru QVC), but really like the lavendar fragranced one (to help hair feel thicker). This stuff is wonderful. Wish I had found it sooner.

My wonderful boyfriend happens to be a REVIEWS junkie..so he looked up this product and came across the fact that the Infomercial is a SCAM!! He then reminded me that I had to cancel my credit card when I noticed charges on my card from somewhere in Peru for over $400. I am now convinced that this is the origin of those fraudulent charges. DON'T PURCHASE THROUGH THE INFOMERCIAL!!!

Was smart enough to not order from the Wen website, because I've been tricked in the past by infomercial shipping practices. (cancel and they still ship and charge your credit card). My fried recommended it. I've used three times so far, as my hair has never looked worse. Firs time it caused major dandruff, second time hair wadded like a brillo pad, and third time looks like I stuck my finger in an electrical socket. Not right for me. Very, very dissapointed.

I've used it for over a year now. I buy it from QVC for the annual auto-ship of the one gallon size., After carefully reading about hair types I chose Fig (which smells more like mint to me). My hair is gray. curley AND frizzy!. Believe me your hair will have a mind of its own when it turns gray. I use to color my hair but now I've stopped. Not because of WEN. but because the gray is a really pretty gray.and coloring is very hard on your hair I've found that the one gallon size is enough for a little more than a year, I use two to three pumps, and with QVC the customer service is awesome should I want to make a change or stop auto-delivery. You can only get the gallon size during their annual WEN DAYS (June?) It's a little pricey that way but cheaper in the long run You might watch for "free shipping Days" or ask customer service. I would advise you to try one made for your hair type, and if it works for you. then order the gallon size. Good luck! Check out the QVC.com website. and try a small bottle at first. Oh yeah,I also bath my Yorkie in it too! Thanks WEN!..

This product, like any other is NOT for everyone!.... I am a model for this product and LOVE it! It is a CREAM cleanser which means if you have fine AND/or greasy hair, then this product just may not be the one for you (at least not as a daily cleanser). I have curly to wavy hair that dries out quickly with styling gels and most daily shampoos, however I still keep a bottle of good ole' strip your hair down shampoo around for those modeling jobs that require heavy styling products. I will be the first to admit that WEN is not the cheapest hair care line out there, but it is a high quality line. I do go into the salon to purchase my products so I cannot comment on the negative feedback about the customer service and shipping, but as far as the products go they really are pretty amazing. Nobody is paying me a dime to write this review so please take it for what it is worth! Just be practical when buying any product and take everyone's comments (including mine) with a grain of salt.

The product fails to get your scalp clean, leaves your hair greasy looking and smells like a dentist's office. It does, however, make a nice de-tangling cream rinse. You just have to wash your hair in something else and not mind smelling like mouthwash. Oh, and you also have to not mind the exhorbitant price.

I also ordered this product from the imfomercial, tried it, hated it and returned it. I am now being charged for the next shipment which I refused, and they claimed I have to have proof that I returned it. The customer rep was rude, treated me like an idiot and refused to refund my money. My advice is stay away from this company. If you want to try this horrible product, do it through QVC, at least they treat people like humans.

Experience not as good. i have used the product thru QVC and have enjoyed the Wen experience. I decided to try the infomercial and all of a sudden I read my bill. 3 x's the price...3 months in a row. I called customer svs. They closed my account (at my request) and rectified the problem. I then called a second day to confirm that the account was cancelled and two payments taken away. Today I called, after reading these reviews and spoke to a Supervisor who also advised my account was closed and the billing would be adjusted. I have to say everyone I dealt with was very nice and very sympathetic. I advised the supervisor that the customer reps, from TV mercials, should be trained and product that is ordered should be shipped...not for 3 months, but for one month. I should not receive products I won't or cannot used, especially if I did not order them. So, I enjoy the product...so far Pomeagranite is my favorite. Use the product the way Chaz says...and make sure you use enough. It's expensive...but, I ejoy it. The cleansing/conditioner is great and I like the volumizer and the hydrating spray. I will check on my bill, every month, to make sure that my problem was resolved. Thanks all for taking the time. I also told them they should retrain the reps and make sure they sell only what is requested...and that the customer should be made aware of what they are getting and how the billing works.

I would recommend order on Amazon rather than anyplace else, because you can order just one bottle, one time, and not have to deal with autopayment/autoship. I'm not sure what their return policy is if not satisfied with the product, but at least you'd know you're only out one payment if you don't like it, rather than stuck with endless problems with autoship everywhere else.

One of the main reasons I purchased WEN was because the infomercial demonstrated that the color will not wash out after you dye it. Unfortunately my color came out but I will say I loved the way my hair felt in the shower so soft and not tangled. When I styled my hair I notice it felt heavy and there was a shine but it felt like I had put too much product in my hair but I didnítÖ..the shine made my hair look greasy; like I haven't washed my hair in 3 days but since I bought the product I felt I would give it a chance. After using the shampoo and conditioner for over a week the product left me with major build up and dandruff. I cancelled my future order immediately and today I request for a refund. Iím keeping my figures crossed due to the experiences Iíve had with Guther-Ranker in the past; that I get my refund and I no longer receive this product. This may work for some people but it definitely did not work for me.

First, the product is a waste of time and money. Did absolutely nothing for my hair. The fine print on the first order is misleading and they will send you a shipment every 30 days - even if you don't want them. I cancelled my subscription, stopped payment on the charges and still receive monthly statements. When you call to discuss, the customer service reps are extremely rude. One even hung up on me! I would never recommend this product to anyone and anytime I watch the show Flipping Out and see Chaz on it, it only makes me more angry about all of the time I have spent on the phone with dealing with his subpar product line.

I've been using WEN for about 5 months now. When applying, I wet my hair and with my head still in the water a little, I start applying the WEN allowing it to seap through my hair easier. (I find that I don't require so much of the product this way.) Then I leave it in while I finish my shower, rinsing it out at the end. My hair has grown much faster in these last few months than it has since 2007 (when I cut my hair above my shoulders). My hair is currently to the lumbar region of my spine. I also noticed that I don't have to wash my hair everyday like before. I can wash every other now. I am so pleased with WEN and I love the sweet almond scent! Can they work on a hairspray that smells that good!? :) Prior to WEN, I was known for being a Pantene Pro-V girl but I don't think I'll ever go back.

I have been using Wen for over three years now and will never go back to regular shampoo. In order to get results from this product you have to use it properly. Time is the key. Your hair has to be completely saturated with water before you apply the Wen. Then you have to massage it throughout your scalp and ends. I leave it on for about 5 minutes before rinsing out. Rinsing long enough is crucial or you will end up with greasy hair. All types of Wen are not the same. I can not use the Sweet Almond or Fig on my hair as it is thinner and seems to weigh it down but the Lavender works great. I also order through QVC to avoid the automatic shipping and all the extra stuff I don't need. It is a bit pricey but the results are worth it. People always comment on how shiny and healthy my hair is.

I received my first shipment of Wen yesterday. I like the smell of the cleansing conditioner; however , using it on my long, layered hair I thought that it would de-tangle it. Didn't work very well. The styling cream is pretty much useless, and I let them talk me into trying the volumizing treatment - big mistake. It does create volume, but it makes my hair feel like straw and it's totally impossible to get a comb through it after use. They really hyped these products up; I haven't used the intensive treatment or balm yet. Don't know if I'll even bother. I feel like I was scammed. I was truly hoping this product would be like it "claimed". Instead I think it's just another one of those gimmicks that sucker people who really want to believe that these products will work. The infommercials are obviously very well done, they hooked me! I will continue to give Wen a try for another couple weeks. But I think I'll be going back to using my Nexxus products, which I can purchase when and where I want without any hassle about returns. The marketing for Wen is great, but the product is disappointing overall.
