Hold Onto Summer A Bit Longer With These WEN By Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioners
You probably still have a few items to check off your Summer 2015 bucket list but you need to add one more: purchase the WEN by Chaz Dean Summer Honey Peach Cleansing Conditioner and the WEN Summer Mango Coconut Cleansing Conditioner ($40 each at ChazDean.com). Both of these limited-edition scents were introduced for Summer 2015 and should be making their exit soon (as in, any day now!), so trust me on this one: snatch them up and you can make summer, at least on a sensory level, last a bit longer, creating a fantastical Caribbean getaway every time you wash your strands. The Summer Mango Coconut Cleansing Conditioner smells a bit like a piña colada, but with just a touch of ripe mango, while the Summer Honey Peach Cleansing Conditioner’s aroma will remind you of a halved peach with a drizzle of honey (otherwise known as the perfect summer dessert!).
Not only will you be seduced by these cleansing conditioners’ scents, but your strands will be revived since, as many of you know, WEN founder Chaz Dean was the first to speak against the foaming surfactants in shampoos, to point out how they did nothing to truly cleanse strands but, instead, worked to strip locks of the vital oils needed to stay healthy and lustrous, fade hair color, and leave strands looking and feeling dry and porous. While championing sulfate-free cleansers, he developed his game-changing WEN brand of cleansing conditioners, formulated with botanical ingredients and equipped to remove any excess dirt and debris while also moisturizing, softening, and strengthening locks, eliminating the need for two-step routines.
The WEN by Chaz Dean Summer Mango Coconut Cleansing Conditioner is formulated with such natural ingredients as: mango seed butter, which boasts a high concentration of oleic and stearic acids that hydrate and replenish strands, as well as vitamins A and C to give hair shine; aloe leaf juice, which contains over 30 vitamins and minerals that soothe the scalp, condition strands, prevent and treat dandruff, stimulate hair growth by unclogging hair follicles, and increase shine; coconut extract, which contains proteins that replenish damaged or dry strands, essential fats, and manganese that nourish strands and leave them soft and lustrous; pineapple fruit juice, which is rich in vitamin C and potassium; rosemary leaf extract, which stimulates hair growth and functions as an excellent tonic; wild cherry fruit extract, rich in vitamins and iron that help fend off hair loss and prevent split ends; banana fruit extract, a great source of potassium and vitamins A, B, and E that helps to deliver softer and more manageable strands; white tea leaf extract, which works as a gentle antibacterial and is rife in polyphenols, antioxidants that help to prevent hair damage and hair loss; antioxidant-rich green tea leaf extract, which also contains vitamin E to replenish dry strands and vitamin C to protect hair from UV rays; açai berry extract, pomegranate extract, and goji berry extract, a superfruit trifecta as all three berries are known to have some of the highest antioxidant concentrations in nature; chamomile flower and leaf extracts, which function as natural cleansers while also conditioning strands.
The WEN by Chaz Dean Summer Honey Peach Cleansing Conditioner, meanwhile, also features mango seed butter, aloe vera leaf juice, chamomile flower and leaf extract, green tea extract, white tea extract, wild cherry fruit extract, goji berry extract, and açai extract, but these are complemented by apricot kernel extract, which boasts a high concentration of vitamin E and functions as an effective sealant, locking moisture into strands; black tea leaf extract, which is said to boost shine, prevent hair color from growing dull, stimulate hair growth, and prevent excess shedding; seaweed extract, which is high in iodine, iron, sodium, phosphorus, calcium, and vitamins A, B1, B2, C, D, and E, all of which are believed to help stimulate hair growth and thicken strands; and Rooibos red tea extract, which contains zinc, copper, potassium, and calcium that strengthen locks and soothe the scalp, as well as polyphenol, an antioxidant that promotes soft and shiny hair while protecting strands from UV rays. Most importantly, this cleansing conditioner incorporates peach fruit extract, a gentle but effective scalp cleanser that helps to remove any debris that might be blocking hair follicles and therefore stimulates hair growth; as well as four different honey extracts: manuka honey extract, eucalyptus honey extract, sage honey extract, and orange blossom honey extract. Because it’s a natural antiseptic and antibacterial, honey helps to detoxify the scalp, but it’s also a natural humectant, so that it attracts moisture from the air, draws it to hair follicles and seals it therein, making strands look plump and bouncy and feel soft and silky. It’s also full of nutrients and antioxidants that feed strands, fortifying them and stimulating hair growth at the scalp level.
When the winter chill sets in and you want to drop everything and fly to Bermuda, these summery cleansing conditioners will be the next best thing — and they’ll make your hair that much healthier, so it’s a win-win!
