If you are like my mom and watch infomercials or QVC on the regular, you have probably seen the commercials for the Wen hair care system. For those of you that haven’t, Wen is a relatively new kind of shampoo that has no harsh chemicals and is made from all natural ingredients. As a result, the shampoo doesn’t lather, but is a cream that you massage into your hair to clean it. Shampoo lathers as a result of the foaming agents added to them such as cocamide DEA, and other chemicals such as sodium lauryl sulfate or ammonium lauryl sulfate.
Other than the models with the stunning picture perfect hair demonstrating this product, the other most notable part of the commercial is the price tag. $30 for a small bottle of shampoo, to be exact.
Through a lucky series of events, my mom and I were able to get our hands on three free bottles of the shampoo and a big container of the intensive hair treatment (kind of like a deep conditioner mask.)
