Women beware: “WEN” may ruin your hair

Comments (0)

Wen Cleansing Conditioner is a beauty product with loads of Hollywood glitz and glamour behind it. Angie Harmon, famous for her starring role in Rizzoli and Isles promotes it on TV.  So does super model Brooke Shields.  It’s supposedly the treatment you want just before you hit the red carpet at your own high profile event.

But you might have to wear a wig -whether you wanted to look your best in your wedding dress or at your high school prom.  Hundreds of women in California say Wen made big clumps of their hair fall out the first time they used it.  They have just filed suit against its creator and his marketing company.  Six women in Dallas with similar complaints filed suit last April.

People Magazine features pictures of women who say they ended up with severe hair loss after using WEN rather than the red carpet ready hair they were led to expect.  According to a story in USAToday, some women who used WEN and lost large clumps of hair several months ago are still waiting for their hair to grow back.

Their lawsuits cite negligence, false advertising and breach of warranty among other complaints.  Defendants are WEN’s creator, Chaz Dean, a famous Hollywood hair stylist and Guthy-Renker, the direct marketing firm that sells WEN.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner is advertised as an all-in-one mixture of five ingredients:  shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and a leave-in-conditioner that promotes strength, moisture and manageability.  WEN claims to protect hair from the damaging effects of frequent shampooing.  But victims say it left hair brittle “like straw,” immediately began to cause hair loss and severe irritation of the scalp.

Lawsuits against the Hollywood stylist and his marketing company say complaints first began surfacing about Wen Cleansing Conditioner in 2012 but the defendants ignored them.  Victims contend that the hair treatment contains “…a caustic ingredient that causes a chemical reaction and damages hair and follicles.”  Women in 40 states are now suing Chaz Dean and Guthy-Renker charging that WEN made them go bald.  Forbes has reported that Guthy-Renker sells more than $1 billion annually in beauty products through its infomercials featuring Hollywood stars.  Chaz Dean is said to be a multi-millionaire.
