WEN Hair Care by Chaz Dean

After years of working as a stylist and colorist and witnessing the damaging results of shampoo on his clients’ hair, Chaz Dean knew something had to change. Lathering, harsh detergents and sodium laurel/laureth sulfates found in most shampoos were not only damaging their hair, but also their health and the environment. Most would experience color fading/stripping, dull, lifeless, frizzy and dry hair, dry scalps, oily scalps, scalp disorders, and hair loss.

That was “WEN®” he developed his concept in cleansing the hair without detergents or harsh chemicals. WEN® cleanses with astringent properties without lathering, while strengthening, adding sheen, luster, moisture and manageability to the hair. WEN® is invigorating and nourishing to both the hair and scalp. Color appears to be more vibrant and last longer.

WEN® is formulated with the perfect balance for all hair types and due to its high moisture content, it also performs amazingly on ethnic hair. Give your hair the love it deserves with WEN® cleansing conditioners and styling products and instantly notice the impressive results. There has never been a single product that changes hair so dramatically.

Say goodbye to your bad hair days, WEN is definitely a StyleDO!


Organic Smoothie Recipe

Leann from Ford Models shows one of her favorite smoothie recipes. Just take a few bananas, blueberries (or other berries and water. It’s 100% natural and organic and dairy-free, just how I like it! Take her advice and add the flax seeds, you’re body will love the extra nutrients. If you need a little more energy, toss in a small handful of almonds while you blend. I also like to add some extra ice for a frozen experience. It’s really not that hard to make healthy choices, and the benefits are amazing. Remember you are what you eat!
