LA stylist Chaz Dean is one of my new heroes. Why? He’s come out with a vegan-friendly and cruelty-free line of hair (and skin) care products that cater to my crusty hair needs (sans the chemicals and sulfates). His unique line of salon-quality, multi functional beauty care is called WEN. Bookmark this website. Not only can you buy his amazing creations but you can watch instructional videos and learn valuable hair-saving tips (hear hear, all you flat iron & blow dryin’ peeps!)
WEN products that stole my heart… and my hair (for the best):
Fig Cleansing Conditioner ($28 for 16 oz pump bottle): Everything in the fig line is designed for people with extremely dry or damaged hair—that’s me, for shiz! Btw, they have different products for all hair types. This product is beyond amazing because not only does it leave your hair smooth and shiny, it also smells ridiculously yummy, and it’s a multi-tasking machine! Check it out… this product can be used as a cleanser (for doggies, too), conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, leave-in conditioner and shaving cream. Day-um! I plan on trying this cleansing conditioner out in every way possible. At this point, I’ve only used it as a conditioner, and it’s divine. It’s a nice thick formula, and the longer you leave it on your hair, the better.
Fig Replenishing Treatment Mist ($32 for 6 oz bottle): This spray can be used on your hair and all over your body! I’ve been using this spray on my hair (sort of as a light leave-in conditioner)—after towel-drying and before blow drying. Again, I love the fig scent. I never really knew what figs smelled like before, but me likey.
Fig Styling Creme ($24 for 6 oz bottle): It’s a leave-in conditioner, polishing gloss and hair gel in one product! Notice a trend? WEN likes to keep things simple and allow their products to multitask. Ultimately, that saves you money, space and time. What I like most about this styling creme is that it tames my frizzy mane. I have a funky hair type that’s neither straight nor curly… I guess you could say it’s wavy, but my waves aren’t consistent or smooth. The product helps define my hair and gives it a li’l ‘tude.
Now that I’ve experience figtastic hair, I’ve decided to incorporate more fig into my life. I had my boo pick up some raw green figs at TJ’s the other day, and now I’m on the hunt for everything fig. If you have any fig tips, recipes or know of any other figgy beauty products out there, please lemme know! xo
