Hi All!

So ... after around 3 years of wanting to try 'Wen' .. I finally did and I kinda love it! Although, I don't love the price  ohmy.gif

I ordered my Wen from eBay. On Amazon, I have seen a product called 'Hair One' which is a cheaper alternative to Wen. Most reviews say it is good, although it seems to be Wen is considered to be just that little bit better. Both are amercian based products.

I was wondering if anyone has found any similar products that they like which is easily available in stores such as priceline that isn't as expensive? If there is something also available online, happy to check that out too.

Thanks girls!

I've never heard of Wen but if you're after sulphate free you could try Goldwell Dual Senses range (recently released - circa $30 for a bottle) or O&M (Original & Mineral) products

And I think maybe even Moroccan Oil shampoo & conditioner are sulphate free too.

I really like all of them but perhaps Moroccan Oil or Goldwell the best.

I use an Aveda shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate free, about $35 a bottle though.

I have also tried the Organic Care brand from Coles/Woolies about $3 a bottle.  There is another organic brand at Coles for about $7. Revlon has also brought out one.

I haven't tried it but Burt's Bees has one too.

So many choices! Good luck!

Hi girls!

Wen is advertised on Tv, and is sold by Guthy Renker. Although I got some on eBay.

It isn't a shampoo and conditioner. It's a 'cleansing conditioner'. It's an all in one type of product which cleanses and then conditions (through two seperate applications). It doesn't froth, it just kinda emulsifies. So it's not your typical shampoo and conditioner product.

Not sure if that makes sense ... Although that's what I am kinda after original.gif
