I got box today from my Mom. In it was a bottle of WEN. My hair has been falling out on the crown of my head for the last three years. Long in back - giving cause for me to being thinking about doing my best comb-over styling ideas. I dont' use cheap shampoo - my one luxury through it all. I've used SAMY for the last few months and it's made my hair very teenager-like. I've never dyed or highlighted my hair and I haven't cut it for 20 years. It's to about my belt loops but never grows any longer (no angora gene here) and breaks easy and falls out. So I started using VEGAN shampoo by Samy and it helped a lot. Then I read about NO sulfate shampoos like John Freidas new stuff - but had already bought 4 bottles of Samy (good deal before I got laid off) and the thing is - When I don't use Samy - (use Biolage, or Redken or anything else? I go to sleep and wake up with HAG hair) when I use Samy? I wash my hair at night and wake up with hair like I did when I was a teenager - long, soft, not haggy. (not kidding) -age takes it's toll on your hair. It's like I went to bed with silky hair one night and woke up with Wicked Witch of the South hair the next morning and every morning after. So SAMY was like a miracle ------except....my scalp never feels or smells clean. So I bought tea tree oil, tried vinegar, EVEN bought astringent....nothing got my scalp clean. Head and shoulders - massaging brush, rinse first, rinse with cold water for 5 minutes - and still - hair never felt clean - and scalp never felt alive. I even asked a beautitian WHAT was I doing wrong - HOW do you massage your own scalp to make it feel ALIVE? She showed me - I went home and did it....nope scalp still blah. So last night - I tried this WEN. And I admit - I'm reading the instructions and channeling Melissa Gilbert and that guy "Chaz" in my mind....and thinking - "Oh Mom why did you waste the money for THIS?" I got in the shower ---did exactly like it said......rinsed and thought...hmm.....scalp feels better....hair feels ...no different. Like I could have grabbed a bottle of my Nexxus....but get out of the shower open the door, towel dry and ......wait?? What's THIS?......O.M.G. As my hair is drying naturally - I never use a blow dryer.....It feels like baby hair. My scalp is tingling just a bit, but feels alive. By an hour later the top is semi-dry and two hours later it's mostly dry and is so shiney even DF says - What did you use on your hair? I mean it was like I sprayed lacquer on it. It has been SO SOFT all day - shinier than you can believe and unbelievable managable. I nearly can't wait to try it again - just to see if it's a fluke or like skeptical me ------they put the good stuff in the first tube full and the rest will be junk. lol. Just wanted to know if anyone else had good experience with this stuff, cause Mom said it's VERY spendy. ( I saw where this man washes his dogs in it )- My mom said in a semi -oh dear voice "It's pretty expensive for the small bottle." - in mom talk that's - Your dog is huge and I am poor. lol.
