Seasonal Cleansing Conditioners - product lines, special ingredients & more info

 

Seasonal Cleansing Conditioners: Styling Products -- All of the Seasonals are available in the Cleansing Conditioner, Replenishing Treatment Mist (RTM), and the Treatment Oil. -- Beginning with the Summer 2014 Seasonal, which was Summer Honey Peach (SHP), going forward, the Seasonals were also available in Styling Creme (SC) and Mousse. The includes the following Seasonals: Summer Honey Peach, Fall Tuscan Pear, Winter White Citrus, Spring Honey Lilac, Summer Coconut Lime Verbena, and Fall Vanilla White Pumpkin. 

 

Seasonal Eau de Parfum -- Beginning in September 2015, Chaz started creating Eau de Parfums (EDP), generally, for the more recent Seasonals:

* Fall Tuscan Pear - September 2015

* Winter White CItrus - December 2015

* Spring Honey Lilac - March 2016

* Summer Honey Peach & Summer Mango Coconut - June 2016

* Fall Tuscan Pear (and maybe Fall Vanilla White Pumpkin) - September 2016

 

The very popular Honey Complex, which is the most moisturising Wen honey complex for the hair, was added to the Summer Honey Peach (SHP). This particular Honey Complex is a mixture of Manuka Honey Extract, Eucalyptus Honey Extract, Orange Blossom Honey Extract, and Sage Honey Extract. It is only in the SHP. Some Wenners have mentioned that Chaz has said it was too expensive to use in future Seasonal Cleansing Conditioners (though I have not heard his mention this). -- As of Fall 2016, all of the Seasonals which were created after SHP have Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey in their ingredients decks (FTP, WWC, SHL, SCLV and FVWP). Wen Men, Pink Jasmine Peony, MIF, and FF (but not BGT) have included Hydroxypropyltrimonium Honey in their ingredients decks. -- The 613 and 319 Cleansing Conditioners each list a Honey Extract in their ingredients decks.

 

* Beginning with the Spring Orange Blossom (SOB), going forward, the 4-Tea Complex has been added to all of the Seasonals (through Fall 2016): SOB, SHP, FTP, WWC, SHL, SCLV, and FVWP. -- The 4-Tea Complex is also in the Restorative line Cleansing Conditioners (BGT, MIF, and FF), as well as Pink Jasmine Peony and Wen Men Cleansing Conditioners. -- The 4-Tea Complex is a combination of Green Tea Leaf Extract, White Tea Leaf Extract, Rooibos Red Tea Extract, and Black Tea Leaf Extract. 

 

each new Seasonal is generally only available for the three-month initial season when it was first introduced. -- Because Wenners get so attached to their favorite Seasonals, beginning in September 2014, Chaz has been experimenting with "opening up" the Wen Seasonals closet, on a season by season basis. For each season, a limited quantity of the prior Seasonals (for that season) have been brought back. And when they're gone, they're really gone. So order sooner rather than later.

 

Seasonal Scents which will only be available at Chaz's website -- Including the upcoming Seasonals for the Fall 2016 - Summer 2017 Seasonal year, there will be four Seasonal scents for each season. -- @Philosophygirl23 shared this information (from periscopein the Wen - Seasonals speculation thread (message #44): "On Periscope, [on June 23rd], Chaz confirmed that Fall Apple Spice (FAS), Winter Cranberry Mint (WCM) and Spring Gardenia Green Tea (SGGT) would not be available at QVC but would be available on Chaz Dean web site. He wasn't sure which summer scent wouldn't come back yet, but thought it might be Summer Mango Coconut (SMC)." My note: Chaz has also mentioned that it might be Summer Coconut Lime Verbena (SCLV) instead of SMC. -- For more information: -- Seasonals - which are your favorites & which will be retired? -- Seasonals this year

 

For the first time, in June 2015, Chaz made four Seasonal scents available in gallons during June Wen Gallons Month: one for each season. For June 2015, he chose Spring Orange Blossom (SOB), Summer Mango Coconut (SMC), Fall Ginger Pumpkin (FGP) and Winter Vanilla Mint (WVM). He seems to have selected the most popular Seasonal for each season. -- Beginning in June 2016, Chaz decided to release select Seasonal gallons within their respective seasons (logistically it was easier to manage). For the month of June 2016, Summer Honey Peach and Summer Mango Coconut gallons were available. -- Going forward, probably only one Seasonal scent (per season) will be available in gallon form. -- At this point it sounds as though Fall Ginger Pumpkin and Winter Vanilla Mint will be the the upcoming gallons available (though this is not definite).

 

Additionally, for the past few December TSVs, Seasonals have been a part of the mix. The Wen December TSV generally includes (5) 16oz. Cleansing Conditioners and has been priced at $80 for the past few years (Chaz is holding the price at $80 this year -- Thank you, Chaz!!! -- The December 2015 TSV included three different TSV options: 

* Seasonal TSV (FGP, WVM, SHP, SHL, & SCLV)

* Classics TSV (SAM, TT, FIG, LAV & POM) 

* Restorative TSV (2-BGT, 2-MIF, & 1-FF)

WEN CLEANSING CONDITIONER FORMULAS 

____________________________________________

 

 

 

 

Wen Cleansing Conditioner Formulas Used for Specific Reasons

 

 

 

___

 

Universals - work well on all types of hair

 

Sweet Almond MInt (SAM) / Pomegranate (POM) / Tea Tree (TT) -- are all considered Universals (i.e. for everyone) -- SAM, the first CC Chaz created, is sometimes too heavy for baby fine hair.

 

 

Most Popular Wen Cleansing Conditioner Formula (in my opinion)

 

Tea Tree (TT) -- it really helps to keep your scalp healthy, balances oil production, keeps dandruff at bay, and seems to make your hair grow more quickly. Chaz calls it one of the "Universals" which means it works well for all types of hair. Most Wenners on this board (as well as the Wen models & hosts) seem to incorporate it into their routine. Besides its slightly medicinal smell, which most people get used to fairly quickly, I've only read a few complaints about it.

 

 

 

___

 

Amino Acid Complex & Extra Skin Care Ingredients

 

613 / 319 / Bamboo Green Tea (BGT) / Mandarin Italian Fig (MIF) / (rice-based) Fragrance Free (FF) / Wen Men / Pink Jasmine Peony (PJP) / all the Seasonals -- add Chaz's 11 amino acid complex (to give your hair more protein) and additional skin care ingredients to your hair. 613 is the most concentrated (to quote Chaz: "Wen on steroids"). -- If you already have a healthy head of hair or if you have thick/coarse hair, then use 613 sparingly at first. To a lesser extent, this applies to all the cleansing conditioners which contain the amino acid complex. If you have one of these hair types and you use the amino acid cleansing conditioners too frequently, your hair may start to feel like straw or even get brittle and start to break. Your hair is made of protein. Depending on your hair type, too much protein may not be a good thing. -- Generally it's great for baby fine, damaged hair... like mine. My hair can't get enough of it.

 

 

 

___ 

 

Bamboo Water & Bamboo Extract - flexibility & strength

 

Bamboo Green Tea (BGT), Mandarin Italian Fig (MIF) and Fragrance Free (FF) -- are the three rice-based cleansing conditioners in the Restorative line, which uses an exclusive, proprietary bamboo water and bamboo extract in all their formulations. Bamboo contains natural silica which increases hair strength while keeping it flexible. This way the hair doesn't become rigid and more likely to break (which can happen if sand silica is used as an ingredient). -- Some people find these formulas a bit drying, probably because the amino acid complex is in them (for more information on this, read through the "Amino Acid Complex" information in which is in the previous paragraph).

 

While several other Wen Cleansing conditioners also have either the bamboo water or the bamboo extract in their formulas, these two ingredients are most concentrated in the Restorative line of Cleansing Conditioners: 

* Bamboo Green Tea -- bamboo water (3rd ingredient), bamboo extract (6th ingredient)

* Mandarin Italian Fig & Fragrance Free -- bamboo water (3rd ingredient), bamboo extract (7th ingredient)

 

Summer Coconut Lime Verbena also has bamboo water as it's 3rd ingredient, but it doesn't have any bamboo extract in it's formula -- 613, 319 and Wen Men all have bamboo extract in their formulas, but the ingredient is much farther down the product listings (which means that there is less bamboo extract in them). None of these three formulas have bamboo water as an ingredient. 

 

 

 

___ 

 

Clarifying / Astringent

 

Cucumber Aloe (CA) -- most clarifying/astringent for an oily scalp (some people find it too drying). Cucumber Aloe was formulated specifically for teenagers because their fluctuating hormonal levels can result in excess oil production on their body and scalp.

 

Tea Tree (TT) -- In particular, the tea tree oil helps normalize an oily scalp by rebalancing sebum production (your body's natural oil). Results may take 3-4 months. Also, as an anti-fungal, tea tree oil helps get rid of excessive fungal growth which can cause dandruff.

 

Note: all of the Wen Cleansing Conditioners are formulated to normalize an oily scalp over time. The balance of ingredients in the Tea Tree Cleansing Conditioner just seem to be the most effective.

 

 

 

___

 

Menthol-Free

 

Kids formulas -- Wen Kids Apple (WKA), Wen Kids Watermelon (WKW), & Wen KIds Strawberry-Banana (KWSB) -- most gentle for the hair and scalp (rice-based / no menthol). The Wen KIds formulas are the only Wen Cleansing Conditioners that are menthol-free.

 

 

 

___ 

 

Moisture

 

Fig (FIG) -- most moisturizing (sometimes too heavy for baby fine hair)

 

Summer Honey Peach (SHP) / Summer Mango Coconut (SMC) / Mandarin Italian Fig (MIF) / rice-based Fragrance Free (FF) -- moisturizing (just not quite as moisturizing as Fig) without weighing down baby fine hair. -- Some people find MIF and FF a bit drying.

 

 

 

___ 

 

Volume

 

Lavender (LAV) -- for volume, if you have a lot of hair. Probably not the best choice for people with not a lot of baby fine hair. -- Possibly the witch hazel, but more likely the lavender extract, can make it too drying for people with not a lot of baby fine hair. Also, it sometimes increases the frizz factor in hair. -- LAV is the trickiest cleansing conditioner to use. It doesn't work well for a number of people.

 

Tea Tree (TT) -- maybe for some volume, if you have baby fine hair. TT also works very well for people with not a lot of baby fine hair.

 

 

 

 

______

 

ALLERGIES -- Wen formulas used because of specific allergies

 

 

    ***  to be on the safe side, confirm this information with Chaz's Wen Customer Service Department and *ALWAYS* read the ingredients listings first before using any of these products. ***

 

 

__

 

 

Wen *Cleansing Conditioners* - best choices 

 

wheat allergies -- soy-based Seasonal, 613 and Pomegranate cleansing conditioners. Also, rice-based Restorative, Wen Kids, and Wen Men cleansing conditioners.

 

soy (and wheat) allergies -- rice-based Restorative, Wen Kids, and Wen Men cleansing conditioners 

 

nut allergies -- soy-based 613 cleansing conditioner. Rice-based Restorative, Wen Kids, and Wen Men cleansing conditioners.-- Possibly some of the most recent Seasonal cleansing conditioners including Summer Honey Peach (SHP), Fall Tuscan Pear (FTP), Winter White Citrus (WWC), and Spring Honey Lilac (SHP). Chaz has mentioned FTP in his QVC shows but, to be on the safe side, check the other ones out first.

 

 

 

__

 

Wen *Product* Lines - best choices

 

wheat allergies -- Pomegranate styling product line, except for the Body Cleansing Creme.

 

nut allergies -- 613 styling products, except (perhaps) for the Treatment Oil. -- Probably the Restorative styling products.

 

Note: information courtesy of Brit from Chaz Dean's salon on 11/24/15.

CLEANSING CONDITIONER - NUMBER OF PUMPS 

_________________________________________________ 

 

 

Use fewer pumps for the 613 Cleansing Conditioner that for all other CCs & suggested number of pumps... 

 

 

NOTE: this information was last updated in August 2014. Since then the 32oz Cleansing Conditioner pump has been remodeled and now I think fewer pumps are needed per cleanse. Also, the Restorative Cleansing Conditioners (BGT & MIF) are now using pumps that have more Cleansing Conditioner in each pump (so you use fewer pumps per cleanse). 

 

 

____ 

 

Number of pumps in each size of Cleansing Conditioner bottle

 

* 6 oz. bottle -- 60 pumps

* 16 oz. bottle -- 160 pumps

* 32 oz. bottle -- 192 pumps

* 128 oz. gallon -- 128 pumps

 

 

____

 

Number of pumps in each size of Cleansing Conditioner bottle that equals 1oz.

 

* 6 oz. bottle -- 10 pumps

* 16 oz. bottle -- 10 pumps

* 32 oz. bottle -- 6 pumps

* 128 oz. gallon -- 1 pump
