Wen Hair Care Complaints Part 2: Hair Loss

If you’re a savvy shopper, you do plenty of online research and you’ve probably read quite a few Wen hair care reviews. One of the most common Wen hair care complaints you’ve most likely read about, that relate to the product itself, is hair loss. This poses quite a big problem though, because there are plenty of reasons why people start to lose hair, seemingly suddenly. I’ll point out the most common reasons of hair loss and how they may or may not relate to the Wen hair care complaints you’ve read.


Pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, no longer taking birth control pills, thyroid problems will all cause your hormones to go a little crazy. This hormonal imbalance can cause hair loss. What makes it extremely difficult to diagnose, is the fact that it can take up to three months before your hair starts to fall out. It’s not always easy to link something that changes your body today to something that happened months earlier. Unfortunately, it usually takes another three months before the problem solves itself and by that time you’re already trying everything you can think of to stop your hair from falling out. So instead of buying every commercial hair growth product known to man and throwing out that new Wen shampoo you recently started using, make a doctor’s appointment and let him or her check for hormonal imbalances. It’ll save you money and a lot of stress related hair pulling.


Alopecia, diabetes, telogen effluvium, lupus can all cause hair loss. Some unfortunately permanent due to scarring of the hair follicles (alopecia), some temporary due to some kind of physical or emotional shock (telogen effluvium). If you think you might be suffering from any of these disease make an appointment with your doctor.

Poor nutrition

With all the slim supermodels they shove down our throats on a daily basis, it’s no wonder many of us have eating disorders. Hair loss is one the symptoms of anorexia, but you really don’t need to suffer from an eating disorder like that to notice your hair is thinning and falling out. Every week it seems there’s a new fad crash diet promising you to lose pounds quickly. What these diets never mention is how many vital nutrients your body will be missing out on if you follow it. Especially lack in protein and iron will wreck havoc on your hair. But, hey, at least you’ll be thin right? Right?


As mentioned earlier, some women will experience hair loss from taking birth control pills. But other medication can also be the reason you have to keep plucking hair from your hair brush. Antidepressants, gout and arthritis medication and even drugs to treat high blood pressure or heart problems can all cause hair loss. As these are all important for your health, and prescribed by a doctor, you’re more likely to blame sudden hair loss on that new Wen cleansing conditioner you started using than on the heart medication you started taking a week ago. Needless to say, keep using the drugs if your doctor recommends them, just realize that the shampoo may be harmless.


Something as simple as a ringworm infection on your scalp can make your hair fall out. Treat the infection and your hair will grow back. Considering that ringworm is a fungal infection it’s pretty easy to treat with an antifungal treatment, even with natural remedies like coconut oil.

Hair products

Do you color or bleach your hair? Do you spend an hour daily straightening out every curl or curling ever straight lock of hair? Well then before you jump on the Wen hair care complaints bandwagon claiming your hair started to fall out once you started using Wen cleansing conditioners, think about how you (mis)treated your hair in the past. Even frequent blow-drying at extreme heat or brushing obsessively can cause your hair to become extremely fragile causing it to break and fall out. Luckily, if you didn’t jump on that bandwagon and kept on using Wen, the Wen hair care products will actually help heal your damaged hair and make it stronger.

As you can see, there are many reasons why people lose hair. Keep this in mind when you come across Wen hair care complaints telling you not to buy the product because it made their hair fall out without supplying more info on their general health. Yes, they could’ve had some kind of allergic reaction to the product which caused their hair loss, but honestly that could’ve happened with any product and it doesn’t mean it will happen to you.

I have used Wen for about 6 months now. I use Wen about 5 times a week and regular clarifying shampoo the other 2 days. I have fine, but healthy hair normally. I have to say, I LOVE Wen! No problems, and my hair has never looked better. Very easy to comb thru and is soft and shiny! I get compliments when I get my haircut about how good of condition it is. I believe some things work better for some than others. Reading about some bad reviews, I have to say, not all of it is true for everyone! Btw, I use Lavender Wen.

Nothing like a company ringer writing the article.Wen is a rip-off, the product stinks up the whole house and it doesn't work. Chaz Dean is a con man and should be thrown in prison.

Most definitely it was the Wen that made half my hair fall out. It also caused my daughter and grand daughter who used the same bottles to loose their hair. Be very careful when considering to use this product.

  about 6 years ago

Well, I am having clumps come out of my hair for the first time ever and constantly picking hair off my arms, back, shirt. My hair is course and breaking at the bottom. My scalp itches worse than it ever has. Sounds like I will be calling Wen for my 60 day money back guarentee. I am on anti depressents and birth control have been for years, never had hairloss before Wen. I have shampooed with it 5 times and I can not believe how much hair I am loosing. Too many people are loosing hair, there is something wrong and he needs to investigate the problem.

Wen made my hair fall out. Period. Blood tests revealed no underlying issues. I used it for about four months before I put two and two together. I stopped using it a full month ago, and my hair still comes out in little clumps. I'm not ignorant, I'm not menopausal. I don't under eat, and I am well aware of how much hair is normal for me to lose in a day. I was so happy with Wen, my hair felt amazing. Until it started to jump ship. I'm livid, and every time I see a Chaz Dean commercial come on I want to scream. I have approximately 60% of the hair I once did...and it's STILL coming out.

I've been using Wen hair care products for over a year. I use the original shampoo, moisture treatment, and styling gel. For the first several months, I loved the results. My hair felt silkier and easy to manage. I told friends and cohorts about the product because I was just that satisfied with the way my hair looked. However, about two-three months ago I began experiencing significant breakage when I combed or brushed my hair. Also, my scalp and the skin directly in front of my hairline is about two shades lighter than my face. My hair in spots is approximately 1 inch long compared to the rest, especially around my face and near the back on the left side of my head. It is also very coarse now. I maintain a healthy diet. I take multi vitamins. I don't take any prescription meds. I don't take birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy. I drink at least 5-6 bottles of water a day. I am devastated by the condition of my once beautiful head of hair. If someone associated with Wen Hair Care products is reading this comment, please contact me to discuss what I can do to remedy this situation. I'm currently wearing coverups because my hair looks so awful!! Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.

Saw my doctor and Had blood work - not hormones, not sick, no infection, not on any medication, eat right and take a supplement and by no means do I over work my hair ( hardly even blow dry it) Could not figure out what was going on until 5 minutes ago - ONLY 2 things changed - Started using Wen and my hair started falling out, but it did not happen instantly and 5 minutes ago I was shopping for Wen and now the lightbulb went on and I realized that my hair didn"t start falling out until after changing to Wen and now I am reading from other people my exact experiences No more Wen products - I will go back to dry hair AT least I had hair!

Yes - what you mentioned are factors for losing hair. But you are forgetting one thing... Wen is a common denominator in all of the cases you have read on line regarding hair loss - I believe them... because it has now happened to me. If you follow shirlee's advice and judge the product youself...remember NO SECOND CHANCE - IF your hair falls out... it gets serious.. Alopecia symptoms occur. If you notice, each story starts out the same, and within 4-5 months - they suffer from significant hair loss, burning and itching... I doubt if all women have any or all the symptoms listed above. The chemicals in the product need to be researched ... are they harmful? Hair loss people should unite - issue a complaint to Seven on your Side... to do an investigation (how many complaints does WEN receive on this.. and all they do is offer more of their product) I filed a report with WEN... I asked for a copy of the report... and have not heard back from them. I Want a copy of my Report - to see if it is accurate!

I was loosing my hair before using the WEIN products and can honestly say that using WEIN has stopped the hair loss. I am Anemic and had tried vitamins and all kinds of products. So I then tried WEIN and will never stop using it. DOnt be afraid from the different comments on the products. You need to make your own judgement on the products. This product helped me and may help you.
