Generic Wen?

Started 1317673993.16 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1317841723.68 by IamMrsG

I was just surfing google looking for info on Wen and came across many negative comments. Someone suggested the generic Wen you can purchase at Sally's. Has anyone tried it and what are your thoughts. Thank you.

I have never tried Wen but have used the Hair One from Sally's. I like to use it every once in a while. It builds up on my hair like all shampoos I have used. I have to wash my hair at least every other day if not every day. I have dry hair but an oily scalp. I have several shampoos that I alternate with.

I tried Hair One out of curiosity once, and it was absolutely horrible. The only similarity may be method of cleansing and appearance, but it's a FAR CRY from WEN. It dried my hair out terribly, after three cleansings, and I returned all three bottles I purchased to Sally's.

Hair One Olive Oil is awesome- not everything worksfor everybody! I've also tried their tea tree, cucumber aloe, jojoba and argan. All nice!

HSN also sells Cutler- it's clearanced now so they're probably not selling it for long. 2 of the varieties are menthol free (Sea Kelp and Tea Leaves) - that's always a plus since I've experienced hair loss issues with Wen.

I've tried Hair One Tea Tree and like it. I also like to use about a dime size of it mixed with water after I've washed and my hair is still wet, in place of Infusion, gel, or mousse. It tames my hair (wavy, frizzy). Try it, it's about $11 bucks, I think.

The Cutler cleansing conditioners, which are the same type of product as Wen, are on clearance for $10 on the southern channel. All 3 types (Olive oil, Tea tree, and Sea kelp) have excellent customer reviews. Worth a try at that price!

ETA: Oops, sorry, I didn't see ibb38's recommendation before I posted.

I tried to post about WEN and it got poofed. I am so sick of WEN shows. He is on all the time and has informercials, QVC. Bring us other choices of hair care lines.

Im with you. It is not even close. It really is not a generic wen. It is a totally different product. Same idea, but totally different.

I would say try hair one first. If you find it drying, then try the other wanna be. Still do not like it, no worries. They both are not like wen. Then try the wen. It is expensive, so I say to try the others first. Of course I have a daughter with hair down to below her mid back. Best thing for long hair though.

You know what I did CC for a while, and suave did me just a good as WEN, plus I hate the medicinal mentholy scent in ALLL the Wen's, ugggg. Suave is cheap and works.

I give the Sally knock off a {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}.

It's way cheaper than Wen. I buy it when I want it and it's always available.

Polar,

I use both Hair One and Wen.

My favorite in the Hair One is the Cucumber Aloe, though Jojoba is a close second.

I wash my hair every other day and usually use the Hair One Cucumber Aloe on the scalp and Wen Sweet Almond Mint on the length of my hair. Once a week, I treat myself to a wash with all Wen Sweet Almond Mint.

I will say that I recently purchased Wen's Fig and I can tell you that the two Hair One products I use blow Fig out of the water.

I also haven't noticed any build up with Hair One like the poster mentioned.

I don't use cleansing conditioners, but I have tried both Wen and Hair One. I preferred Hair One. It smelled better, was easier to work with and my hair looked much better. Not to mention it was a whole lot cheaper.

I learned about using Suave here on the boards, and it works well for me, too. In fact, I believe my hair stays clean longer than with Wen.
