My hair is naturally curly and I'm always trying to straighten it out. I color it and bleach it, dry it and fry it and everything else in between. In December I thought I would try the Keratin treatment in hopes to make my hair healthier and straight without having to used a flat iron on it. WRONG! The Keratin treatment that I received was either done improperly or the product wasn't doing what it should. I ended up damaging my already over treated hair and I never thought I would get it back to normal let alone looking healthy.
I tried the Wen Sweet Almond Mint cleanser which I figured couldn't hurt any more then what I had already done. It does take some getting used to the process that's involved in this product. Rinse your hair thoroughly, use 16-32 pumps or more depending on thickness of your hair, scrub, leave in while showering, scrub and rinse out. It seems like a long process, but I assure you it's not. I start my shower off rinsing my hair and then pumping as many pumps as I feel necessary (usually around 25)and I leave the product in while I wash myself, use my clarisonic, shave and exfoliate my feet. Then I add a little bit of water to my hair and scrub the product in some more while massaging my scalp and enjoying the mint smell and I finish by rinsing it out.
Once I get all the product out and I towel dry my hair I usually take a half pump in my hand and use that as my leave in conditioner. Aside from blow drying my hair and maybe flat ironing some ends I don't use anything else.
After 2 months of using this product my hair dresser couldn't even tell that she ruined my hair just a couple months ago. She was astonished by how healthy and shiny my hair was. I even stopped crying at night because of all the hair loss and breakage from the previous treatment. I can honestly say that Wen is my go to product and I use it every other day or when I'm back from a day of volleyball.
