WEN vs. Devacurl No Poo

Started 1339860541.17 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1339998249.6 by drkcharger

Other than the Devacurl being a line specifically for curly hair, what would be the advantage of WEN over it? I tried the No Poo (which is a non sudsing, cleansing conditioner) and love it! I had been tempted by the WEN, but was wondering if it would actually be any better. Anyone out there who's tried both?

Although I go to a salon where they use the Deva no poo on my hair, I usually use Wen , therefore I can't really compare them.

After WEN first came out, I went to the salon and got small bottles of all four flavors to try. I didn't have any problems, hair loss, etc., but I wasn't so impressed with the results that I stuck with it. I also tried the lavender when it came out, and it was just okay.

I vastly prefer Deva Curl to Wen, but I like the Lo Poo and One Condition better than No Poo.

Everyone's hair is different--stick with whatever works.

Deva Curl doesn't strip hair color like Wen.

I do not have curly hair but it is dry, course and color treated. I have used Wen and DevaCare no poo and I prefer the DevaCare hands down! It is more moisturizing and does not weigh it down at all, hair feels soft and clean. I don't need a conditioner either and that is a first for me.

I tried Wen, and it always felt like it left something not quite oily and not quite waxy on my hair. Almost like the wax they put on fruit at the grocery store. I love the Deva products and find that the NoPoo cleanses my hair beautifully. For way way less money, and you use WAAY less product. So, I tried the Wen, and went happily back to my Deva.

Does devacurl have menthol in it?

I just looked up the ingredients and the no poo one does have menthol, although it is at the very end of the list.

This looks interesting.

wow yeah those ingredients are somewhat different (and in different order) than what drugstore.com has listed for it! I wonder why so different? Now I am not sure about trying it.

And one shows parabens in it and the other doesn't. Interesting.

Looks like the product was reformulated and the parabens were removed. I would assume the DevaCurl site is correct.

Devacurl been using off and on for years then tried Wen didn't like it at all. I also use Traite by Mastey wich i believe was one of the first cleansing creams on the market
