My shower seems absolutely empty in comparison! LOL

I have Bumble & Bumble in Color-Minded shampoo and Super Rich Conditioner, some Angel Delight soap from Lush and First Aid’s facial cleanser. πŸ™‚

Not as much as there used to be but we just moved and I cut down, so: Korres Basil Lemon shower gel, Vivite Exfoliating facial cleanser, SkinCeuticals LHA cleanser, ExfoliKate (regular), Yes to Carrots Scalp Relief conditioner, Vidal Sassoon VS Pro Smooth conditioner, prescription shampoo. I use one shower and the husband uses the other so it’s all my stuff πŸ™‚

Christine, are you liking the WEN? I keep thinking about trying it but it’s expensive and I don’t want to buy a bottle and then determine I hate it/it doesn’t work for my hair.

The one I have is the Lavender, and I don’t like it. This is my second attempt at trying to like it/use it, but I just feel my hair gets really greasy/oily by the end of the DAY.

I tried the almond scent as a treat to myself about a year ago. It weighed my hair down something fierce, no doubt because my hair is so long. I figured I could get the same results by washing my hair with any conditioner and eliminating shampoo completely, which is pretty much what WEN is. I would end up using it as conditioner after shampoo just to get a clean feeling on my scalp. I didn’t even use the amount they specify…one bottle would only last for 2 uses with the amount of hair that I have!!

Ouch. I have really fine hair that tends toward oily to begin with, so I think this is a skip for me then.

Seriously, If you use it ‘right’ you WILL love it. Wash rinse repeat. The more you use the better and cleaner you get. For your hair length Id use 20 pumps of the 16z bottle. If you are having trouble getting it to spread around add a little bit of water to your hands as you wash. Rinse until you think its rinsed enough, then rinse a little more. WEN is my miracle hair product. I get compliments on my hair everytime I leave the house now because if it. I wash, rinse then wash again but I let in sit in my hair as I finish the rest of my shower, then I rinse my hair last thing before the shower is over. Follow these tips and I promise it will work for you.

Hi Stacey,

I do all of those things, but thank you for the tips πŸ™‚ Not every product will work the same for everyone – I know lots of people love WEN but also know those who haven’t had good luck with it. I use 20-30 pumps, at least, because my hair is both thick and long, run it through my hair with my fingers and a wide-tooth comb, let it sit for 3-5 minutes, then rinse twice, then do one more rinse at the end of my shower. I actually have very little trouble with shampoos, but this is one of the few that has seemingly made my hair worse. It might not just be the right variety of WEN, but it’s the one I was sent to try. I’m so happy it works for you πŸ™‚

I have the regular (orange writing) and the acne (blue writing) and I absolutely love them. I prefer the regular to the acne; I think it’s more exfoliating. It’s expensive but you don’t need that much and you don’t use it that often–I use it maybe twice a week? It gets rid of all my flaky bits and excess oil and leaves my skin so soft and smooth. I used to follow up with her oil free moisturizer, which I really like, but since we moved I can’t find it so I’ve been using pure jojoba oil instead–which I think I like better, go figure. The small tube of ExfoliKate isn’t that expensive and it lasts long enough that you’ll decide whether it’s worth it to buy the big tube, so I’d recommend starting there.

i lead a simple life

Fun question! I got a new shampoo today, because I was curious and bored. It has henna in it, and it’s supposed to bring out auburn tones in brown hair. I used it on a lock of my hair this evening, but I don’t think it did anything.

Hair: Garnier Fructis Hydra Recharge Shampoo, Conditioner, and Moisture Treatment (I received them all from BzzAgent), Nature’s Gate Organics Shampoo (Orange + Patchouli), Organix Awapuhi Ginger Dry Styling Oil and Yes to Carrots Leave-in Conditioner. I cut off at least a foot of hair last week, so I really don’t need any of it much at the moment. But all of them worked lovely on curly dry ends…of course, not simultaneously. πŸ˜‰ I usually only have a shampoo and a conditioner, but I lost my mind and let my hair grow out for two years.

Body: Alba Botanica Hawaiian Face Cleanser (the coconut one), a bar of Villainess Soap, Queen Helaene Mint Julep Face Mask, a trial bottle of bodywash to use up, Alba Botanica Shaving Cream in Coconut Lime (love this stuff!), and BPAL bath oil from the Tomoe Gozen set. I usually have a Villainess Sugar Scrub, but I haven’t bothered to put one in since I used the last one.

Shower: Alterna Caviar Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, Shea Moisture Argan Oil and Raw Shea Body Wash, Chanel Mousse Confort Facial Cleanser

Bath: BathRoman Collagen Bath Salts, L’Occitane Shower Oil, Jasmine Green Tea bags

Bath & Body Works Cucumber Melon body wash, Skintimate shaving cream, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree hair and scalp treatment, Burt’s Bess Gud Orange Petalooza conditioner, Burt’s Bees Gud Pearanormal Activity shampoo, Alba Botanica natural acne dote face and body scrub, Mark Shine Fighter oil control mask and Smart Sense feminine wash.

Dove soap, Neutrogena Body Clear body wash (stashed from the internet after being discontinued in the UK), Tresemme shampoo and conditioner. Clinique 7 day scrub, some L’Occtaine shower gel and an exfoliating brush.

I like to have a super speedy and streamlined shower routine- maximises time spent in bed.

I’m quite minimalist. Just Garnier shampoo, Aussie Moist conditioner, and Dr. Bronners for all my washing needs.

That sounds like me πŸ™‚ Liz Earle Shampoo, Liz Earle Conditioner for Fine Hair, Soap and Glory shower gel. I cleanse my face using Liz Earle hot cloth polish, so that’s not in the shower as such.

I HATE multiple bottles in bathrooms! My mum drives me potty as she always has about 8 bottles of shampoo on the go!

Purity by Philosophy, a Body Shop Lemon Body Scrub, Lush Snow Fairy shower gel, Origins Modern Friction exfoliator, MoroccanOil shampoo and hair mask, my Clarisonic.

Ah yes, my inner nosy neighbor loves knowing what products other people have.

I have:
1. Loreal Evercreme Shampoo
2. Joico Balancing Shampoo
3. Joico Moisture Recovery Conditioner (p. much my HG conditioner)
4. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle
5. Olay Fresh Moisture body wash in Nectarine
6. Olay Fresh Effects Shine Shine Go Away cleanser
7. Queen Helene Mint Julep scrub
8. St. Ives Apricot Scrub

Yeah it’s a lot…I alternate between those products depending on season and how dry or balanced my hair feels.

Interesting question!

Conditioner: L’Oreal Ever Strong Conditioner, Trader Joe’s Nourishing conditioner, L’Oreal Cleansing Conditioner

And my Clarisonic.

Phew! I have a bit of ADD when it comes to bath products, but I’m trying to use up the one I don’t use often πŸ™‚

I have a ton of stuff in my shower and most of it is from Lush. Lush Angels on Bare skin and Dark Angels cleansers. Lush Trichomania solid shampoo and Jungle solid conditioner. Lush soap in Ice Blue (charlies) and Sexy Peel and Avowash. A random Hair Mask and a Lush Dragons Egg bath bomb. Oh and charlies 2 in 1 Head & Shoulders.
