Fine, thin with the occasional frizz best describes Emily McClure’s mane. Maybe some of you also share in this kind of hair.

Emily is a beauty/fashion contributor to Bustle.com, so she is able to sample a variety of hair and other beauty products. Since her locks were looking lousy and unmanageable, Emily reached for a bottle of Wen By Chaz, hoping to dramatically change her frumpy hair.

She tested WEN for seven days, keeping a hair log and snapping hair selfies to show readers her progress.

Emily chose well, because the good WEN brand has been around for more than two decades now, offering women a healthier alternative to hair care in the no lather shampoo concept.

Chaz Dean developed the WEN line and must be doing something pretty spectacular, because his brand has sold more than 40 million bottles. His Hollywood elite clientele all remain faithful to the label and the man, as Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/) is a longtime celebrity stylist who knows plenty about hair, from root to end.

WEN is very different from ordinary shampoos, because Chaz Dean’s products do not contain chemicals and detergents. Instead, his famous cleansing conditioners wash like a shampoo but without the suds. This one magic bottle also deeply conditions locks and de-tangles like a dream. Wen products are exclusively available on the Wen.com website.

Emily chose the Mandarin Fig to add extra body and nourishment to her medium length hair. Although she erred by not using a sufficient amount of cleansing conditioner, the results were still remarkable. Emily posted photos on Facebook and showed off super glossy, full new hair with movement. Her friends complimented Emily on her new gorgeous hair.

Emily concluded that WEN is fab for bringing new life to drab damaged hair, but the system also requires ample time for washing the hair daily and styling after.
