One of my best friends in the entire world got married last weekend. She was probably the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. Having done a lot of make up in my day, I have seen a lot of gorgeous brides- call me biased, but Tara took the (wedding) cake.
Part of the fun of the day was getting hair and make up done. Our friend Deena did our hair and she and I got to talking about my "no pooing." I have been using a mixture of baking soda and water on my hair since December. It was working as far as keeping my hair clean, but I was starting to notice that my hair was getting dry and coarse. Deena suggested Wen. She works for QVC doing on-air make up and hair. If she suggests a product, you bet your sweet ass I'm going to try it. She is an amazing artist/stylist and knows her shit. She suggested Wen because it is a cleansing conditioner- not a shampoo. It is made from essential oils and has a couple of chemicals in it, but no sulfates, phalates, or other really yucky carcinogen style chemicals.
Lilah and I made a pilgrimage to QVC where we bought a big ass bottle of Sweet Almond Mint. I used it yesterday for the first time and was super happy. The dryness went out of my hair almost instantaneously and it was so soft that I cannot keep my hands out of it. My hair and I are about to get real sexual. Today I used like a shampoo again, rinsed it, and then used it as a leave in conditioner. My hair isn't weighed down and is softer than it has been in a long time. I won't be weirded out if you want to touch it. You know you want to.
Seriously. That infomercial don't lie. Wen is fo' real.
