I'm interested in the Wen haircare system. I emailed them and will let you know if I get a response....

Has anyone else emailed them?

Purely from a product point of view, I used this line and did not like it. It's expensive and didn't do anything special for me, and I needed help bad. My hair was in poor shape from nutritional deficiencies and thyroid problems. I found better luck with John Master's organic line (styling products), and Desert Essence Organics Coconut shampoo and conditioner...available for $7 each at Wholefoods and clearly states its gluten free. I get compliments all the time now on the shine and health of my hair...I NEVER thought that would happen again (before gluten issues, my hair was so beautiful and easy to deal with).


2010- Gluten, Soy, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Nut free. Sugar, non-gluten grains lite(Yes, still plenty to eat!)

2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life

2009

I ordered these products a while back but had to send them back. I don't remember if it was wheat or soy protein in them that made them a no go for me. Companies do change ingredients though so please post their response when you get one.

I have it, I actually love it. It's the only 'shampoo' that helps with my scalp psoriasis. It is, however, FULL of wheat, so watch out! I don't use it as a leave in conditioner and I use it in a separate shower that my kids use.
