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!

2008 Green Prom: The Princess Project

Can’t wait for prom? Did you know you can be uber-psyched for your special day and still make a green impact? Yep, meet The Princess Project. This video segment from Eco News gives you the scoop on the latest prom trend for 2008 – recycled dresses! Think about it, most prom dresses are worn one time, for one night, then it gets relegated to the back of the closet never to be seen again. Sure you might know a fashion forward friend who can actually redesign an old prom dress into a stylish new creation, but most of us just sigh and leave our prom dress alone with those other “never to be worn again, but I really can’t get rid of this” items like the cashmere sweater with the moth hole, that cute tank top that will never fit again and of course, skinny jeans. Why not put that prom dress to good use and donate it?

The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and accessories (love that – you always need to accessorize!) to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. It’s a great project and you’ll feel good participating.

BTW: Eco News is your daily dose for everything Green in the San Francisco area! From the most current information on renewable energy and organic produce to environmentally friendly products and people making a difference!
