Can anyone say which scents have the four honey complex?  I know Peach and Lilac but are there any others?  I have a decent amount of Peach styling creme and used it yesterday and forgot how great the results are!  Anyway, if anyone knows, please post it.  Thank you!

I think the WRC might.  Don't have time this min., but look up the ingredients.

 

Now that I think about it think it may be 4 teas instead of honey I'm thinking about

@77yangya only SHP has the 4 honey complex in the CC as far as I know- Lilac does NOT. It only has the honey extract as highlighted below. However, the SHL ancillary products  do contain the 4 honey which does including the mousse, styling cream and oil. A few of the other scents have the honey extract but not the 4 honey complex. HTH!

@HappyDaze, @77yangya@Drythe, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey, showing on some Wen ingredient lists, is AKA Honeyquat.  

Searching "4 honey complex" turned up nothing on Chaz's website. 

 

I don't know if Chaz switched from calling it "4 honey complex" to Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey for clarity in labeling, or if 4 honey complex is something different. 

Either way, Google "Honeyquat". It's anti-static, moisturizing, hair and skin good stuff.

 

I just sent the following email to Chaz's CS staff:

Hello Wen helpers!

 

Wen Summer Honey Peach contains "4 honey complex".

 

I see Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey listed as an ingredient in other Wen formulas. Google tells me Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey is AKA "Honeyquat." 

 

Are "4 honey complex " and Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey the same thing?

 

Thank you for your help!

@x Hedge no, from my understanding they are not the same. The SHP ingredients and the couple of ancillary SHL products  have 4 types of actual honey listed in it while the other is derived from honey (not sure which honey either), hence the reason I always call it honey extract rather than honey. The others list four different types of actual honey rather than the derivation of or an extract of honey.

 

My hair certain responds well to the actual honey and not the extract,  aka as honequat.


HTH!

@x Hedge I should add that no, he did not change it from the 4 honey complex to the Hydroxypropyltrimonium honey name because it was never called 4 honey complex- it simply listed out 4 different types of honey. Hence the reason you couldn't find that on his website. Smiley Happy

 

Plus, SHP contains all 4 honeys AND the single honey extract so they are definately two different things.

 

AND I stand corrected- the four honeys are technically extracts as well but not sure how they differ from the Hydroxypropyltrimonium honey stand alone extract.

@HappyDaze, thanks for the ingredients list. I'm unable to make out the tiny print on the bottles and always have to go to Chaz's website to read a list I can enlarge. ( Viewing on a smartphone. )

Sorry to cause any confusion.  I forgot to mention I was asking about the styling cremes.  I thought SHP and SHL had them, all four.  Thank you for the replies!
