Wen products caused hair loss and damage
Update by user Apr 10, 2012
I haven\'t been using wen or pantene since around valentines day and now I have 95% of the hair I lost growing back.The biggest spot is taking a bit longer, but it is coming back, too.
I have been using a shampoo I found at walmart called simply u. It is paraben and sulfate free. I love this stuff. I can not believe the money I have spent on wen.
I guess you can say I spent to lose my hair.I hope something happens to this product so no one else has to experience this.

I have been using wen for about a year and a half now, daily.I absolutely loved it my hair was so soft and shiny and thick.This was until around November of 2011 I noticed a 2 inch roundish bald patch on the back of my head.
I started researching different things about hair loss and came to the conclusion that it was Alopecia. I decided to go to the doctor and he ran a bunch of different tests. They all came back normal. At this point I never gave the wen a thought and continued to use it.
Finally my boyfriend and I were discussing the issue and he said to Google hair loss while using wen and I couldn't believe what I saw. Complaint after complaint about others experiencing the same stuff. I stopped using wen around the 20th of January 2012 and started using garnier fructise and a week later I had a five o'clock shadow in the now two bald spots that have increased in size. This shampoo wasn't making my hair very soft or manageable so I went back to my favorite shampoo, Pantene.
The five o'clock shadow seemed to be disappearing about a week after. Here come to find out, Pantene has some of the same ingredients that wen does. So today I do not use either and I am taking a Biotin supplement hoping this does something for me because I am down to less than half the hair I always had. I can still conceal the issue but it is getting harder.
I am affraid that in another month at this rate I will be completely bald. I am PISSED!!!!
Someone needs to be responsible for this!!!!THIS SUCKS!!!!
