WEN Hair Care Users Sue Over Hair Loss

WEN Hair Care Lawsuit - Ingredients Cause Balding
Wen Hair Care Products Lawsuit
Chaz Dean and his WEN Hair care line are at the center of a class action lawsuit brought by 200 former users of his products. They claim they suffered substantial hair loss after using the WEN hair care system. While my first instinct is to point my finger and give a few "I told you so's", I feel genuinely sorry for these poor people. They bought into the hype and the celebrity endorsements after being pounded by years of WEN Hair infomercials. I have read hair loss horror stories about WEN for several years and always wondered if the damage was that severe, why no one ever took legal action. Looks like that time has come.

200 Women Sue WEN Hair Care

WEN took down the actual ingredients list from their website a couple years ago. Here is the ingredients listing from one of their products. No wonder people are losing their hair. Not only are there extremely harsh and irritating ingredients listed, people rub this into their scalp, smothering the skin and hair follicles. Suffocating your scalp with anything is going to cause major hair trauma.

Water, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearamidopropyl Dimethylamine, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Prunus Serotina (Wild Cherry) Bark Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Vegetable Oil (Olus Oil), Panthenol, Butylene Glycol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Polysorbate 60, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Amodimethicone, Citric Acid, Menthol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Geraniol, Benzyl Benzoate, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Hydroxycitronellal.C960

This list comes from the Almost Exactly blog. You should read the discussion people are having regarding hair loss and these products. It's pretty scary stuff.
