If you have read any of my reviews, you know that I’ve been using Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner for the last few months. Wen is a sulfate-free cleanser that nourishes and detangles the hair. Wen is awesome but pricey, I have alot of hair and at $40 a bottle that is an expensive commitment.
I started researching other sulfate-free cleansers and found out that Sally’s Beauty Supply carries a Wen knock off called Hair One and it’s only $9.99 a bottle! According to Sally’s web site Hair One is, ” A salon quality product that provides a new all natural approach to hair care and hair detox that leaves hair cleansed, conditioned and in optimum shape. This conditioner has no damaging detergents or harsh chemicals. It’s made with an elixir of natural herbs and oils that clean with astringent and antibacterial properties through a luxurious, penetrating cream without the stripping of detergents. Hair is left with remarkable shine, moisture, manageability and polish. With continued use, Hair One Cleanser Conditioner will stimulate the scalp, promoting better blood circulation, allowing for healthier hair growth and prevention of hair loss. Available in four formulations.”
The four formulations are Cucumber Melon for normal hair, Olive Oil for dry and damaged hair, Jojoba for color treated hair, and Tea Tree for dry scalp. I like as much moisture as humanly possible so I bought the Olive Oil. I have to say, I liked is just as much as Wen. It didn’t smell as good but it was just as moisturizing if not more. To be fair, I had the Sweet Almond Mint by Wen which is not the most moisturizing formula that Wen makes. But with Hair One, my hair felt just as moisturized, tangle free, and just as clean.
I still think Wen makes wonderful products but if you’re in a pinch in between bottles of Wen or want to try sulfate-free cleansers without blowing alot of money, Hair One is definitely the way to go.
