Wen for keratin treated hair?

Started 1377899873.28 in WEN | Last reply 1377908922.31 by Bella2

I received a sample of the Wen pomegranate and I would like to know if it is suitable for hair that has had a keratin treatment? At the salon, the stylist mentioned not to use sulfates on my hair and when I read the ingredient list, there appears to be sulfates in the wen. I remember watching wen programming and I thought that he said that wen was great for everyone's hair. Has anyone used this on keratin treated hair? Thanks for your help.

I used it and it was fine. His website says it is safe for use with keratin treatments (even though Chaz is anti-keratin). I used the shampoo my salon gave me the first couple weeks because they said they wouldn't guarantee my treatment if I used anything else. When I ran out of the keratin shampoo I switched back to my wen with no problem. When I get my next treatment I won't hesitate to just use my wen.

Wen is sulfate free, and it worked great for me when I was getting keratin treatments.

The ingredient Behentrimonium methosulfate isn't a sulfate. According to the website making cosmetics, it is a naturally derived, cationic self-emulsifying wax & quaternary conditioner derived from colza oil of the natural plant Colza. It says it is very good for detangling, thickening hair and is very gentle for leave in conditioners.

The sulfate to avoid is sodium lauryl sulfate, which is a salt of sulphuric acid, and is a detergent.

What about the f450 amino fusion treatment? Do we think Wen is okay with that?

My hairdresser said not to use Wen when I use Keratin treatments. I don't know why.
