I started using Wen September of 2010 and didn't like the heavy dirty feeling in my hair. BUT after watching the video that comes with the "cleanser" I was determined to have hair like the models.
So I kept using it for a long time. In February 2012 I started breaking out in hives and after many tests I never suspected Wen could be a contributing factor. I was diagnosed with "idiopathic hives" meaning no reason. ??
So I continue with Wen and now I am actually thinking the hair does not look bad and I don't know if I was just getting used to weighed down hair or what but I did like the ends of my hair. Fast forward to MAY 2013 still using Wen but have had hair itching scalp for several months and thought it ws from the hives. All this time lots of hair came out in my comb but was sure again it was not from the WEN. I was so sure it was not from the Wen because on QVC so many people posted how it was so wonderful.
CUT to JUNE 2013 I am noticing lots of hair loss and my scalp is red and feels raw. I have itching of the scalp almost immediately after washing and it continues daily. Finally by mid JUNE I stop using the WEN. My scalp is so red and looks burned and lost more hair.
NOW it is July 30th 2013. I have not used WEN for 6 weeks and the hair loss continues. My drains are clogged in the shower with hair. My scalp is so itchy and red.
I a convinced now that Wen has destroyed my scalp and that my hair will continue to fall out until my scalp is healed. I have a doctor's appointment this week. I have spent so much money only to end up with a sore, red, balding scalp. I paid a lot of money for this and the FDA should get involved.
This is toxic. I feel like my scalp was being suffocated by a poison!!! I am intersted in a class action law suit.. I am scared my hair will not even regrow.
I was very dumb to keep using this terrible product.
BUT I followed complete instructions and would never imagine that this product was doing harm. I am sure I basically clogged every hair follicle I have.
