{GIVEAWAY ALERT} #WeekofWEN Hair Challenge + Your Chance to Win the WEN by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Hair Collection

Wen Sweet Almond and Mint Conditioner Review

If there’s two thing I look for in hair products, it’s that they do not contain sodium laurel sulfate and second that they are a part of a regimen.

While I will make exceptions to the latter, brands often design products to go together in a collection (much like skincare) and by mixing and matching different brands you can lose out on some of the benefits. Plus, if I know certain products go together, I tend to be more diligent about using post-shower treatments and deep conditioners that my hair most desperately needs to stay healthy and avoid split ends.

After seeing the damage caused by ordinary shampoos on his clients’ hair, International Hair Expert, Chaz Dean, created Wen®. Now here’s the crazy part! Wen® created a Cleansing Conditioner — which is made with natural ingredients, and acts like a shampoo as well (hence it’s “cleansing” title) and is free of sodium laurel sulfate (woohoo!) and other damaging detergents found in other shampoos.

This week, WEN is challenging me to switch from regular lathering shampoos to their Sweet Almond Mint hair care collection and I invite you to take the challenge with me!

I’m giving away a set of the Wen® Complete Haircare System to one lucky winner which includes:

  • Wen® Cleansing Conditioner – Cleanses hair thoroughly with astringent and antibacterial properties without harsh ingredients that may be found in ordinary shampoos.
  • Wen® Styling Crème – Use instead of gel for a medium hold with a glossy finish that works for any style and hair type. Designed to help promote moisture, shine and body all in one formula. Benefits also include, split end repair, texture improvement and frizz control.
  • Wen® Re Moist Intensive Hair Repair Mask -Designed for use before and after any chemical treatment or when hair has been stressed. Intensive Hair Repair Mask adds moisture, body, and shine to restore your hair and strengthen damaged strands.
  • Wen® Texture Balm  An ideal finishing touch for creating looks with definition, separation and texture. It’s designed to provide hold and shape for long or short hairstyles.
  • Wen® Wide Tooth Shower Comb – Hand finished, saw cut, wide tooth shower comb is specially designed to evenly distribute the WEN® Cleansing Conditioner through your hair.

The collection guaranteed to cleans your hair and scalp without stripping natural oils.  And while the Cleansing Conditioner does not lather, it does feels like a thick conditioning treatment (almost like you’re applying a skincare cream to your hair), which is designed to add moisture, body and shine while increasing manageability and better color retention. While the application does take some getting used to you can feel your tangled strands smooth out while you’re in the shower and I’m excited to see where this week takes me.

One of the best things about the summer is Friday office hours and saved vacation days.  For those impromptu beach trips and weekend jaunts with friends, LeSportsac fun, colorful and printed weekender bags and totes are the best! Which is why a patterned LeSportsac tote bag is the perfect tag along to hold all you will need for last minute trips.  What I love about the LeSportsac is that it comes with a little pouch for makeup, toiletries and little odds and ends.  And they are waterproof and easy to get anything from sand to lunch spills off of.

Summer is all about traveling light, our perfect ensemble for the train, plane or automobile is a pair of printed leggings from Brooklyn-based clothing company 20Legz, which sells fashion forward leggings for just $20 plus $5 shipping.  Of course you can’t forget to capture all your favorite moments from your trip without a Mosaic photo book. Mosaic is a free app, which lets you create a custom photo album book using pictures stored on your Smartphone as well as your (or your friends/family…) Facebook pages for just $25. Best of all, it arrives in 2-4 days and takes minutes to create.
