WEN Hair Care Prodcuts

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I recently went into Sephora to do a little makeup shopping, and while I was there I noticed they started selling the WEN hair care by Chaz Dean products!  I've only seen this advertised on TV and I've always been intrigued but never actually bought it {I think they make you renew each month and I didn't want to do that}. I was thrilled to see it in the stores now, so I bought the kit which has the Cleansing Conditioner, Re Moist Intensive Hair Treatment, and the Replenishing Spray {pictured below} and so far I like it!

I was a little skeptical at first because the Cleansing Conditioner is a 5-in-1 product, so it takes the place of your shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave in conditioner.  The directions tell you to use 10-15 pumps, which is A LOT of product {I've just been using about 7 pumps because I want it to last}, and you have to massage into your scalp for 1-3 minutes.  Then you comb in through your hair and leave on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse. It doesn't lather up at all either because it contains no sodium laurel sulfate or other damaging detergents, so its a little strange to be washing your hair with a thick conditioner and no foam!

However, I after using the products twice...I'm loving the way my hair feels!  Its soft and silky, no frizz, just feels really moisturized and healthy!  I have very fine hair and was concerned that this may be a little too heavy on me, but so far I'm loving it!  The Replenishing Spray is a great added moisturizing treatment that you can spray onto your hair wet or dry.  I have not yet used the Intensive Hair Treatment, but I plan to this weekend so I'm hoping it will be a great deep conditioner going into winter!

From their website, it looks like they have other products you can buy--a styling creme and texturizing balm.  I'll update again on this once I've had a little more time to use the products, but for now this how my hair came out this morning:

Have any of you used the WEN hair care products before?  What did you think? Also, this was not a sponsored post by WEN.....just 100% my opinion and experience :)

Back to the grind....

Hello there and Happy Monday!

Well I'm back to the grind now.....Yesterday, I flew back to Columbus from Miami despite the hurricane!  I really thought our flight would be cancelled but we were able to get out before it really got bad.

My 3 weeks in Miami totally flew by! I really thought I'd have more time to do things, but all of a sudden it was over.  I never even got into a bikini once! I was just busy working or doing things with my family. I got to meet my niece, Juliana, for the first time and she is adorrraabllleeee! She's 5 months old and a super easy baby! Look at that face...

All in all, it was great to spend so much time with my family but I'm glad to be home!  Just happy to get back to my house and get things back in order.  Not very excited about being back in my office though....working from home was really great! 

I have some fun shopping posts planned for this week, so stay tuned!

Have a great rest of the day!

What have I been up to?

Happy Friday everyone!

Well, I've officially been in Miami for 1 week now and I'm loving it! Being back home is great and I'm loving all this family time I'm getting!

Doc has been enjoying his rotation at the hospital down here so that's been good!  And I've been working remotely, which has been working out great as well, so things are going pretty well over here!

My daily outfits have consisted of things like this:

Super fab, right? Found these awesome leggings in the my closet here from the 80s or 90s.  Well, I was too young to wear them...they were my mom's or sister's but I'm glad they were kept.  Patterned pants are coming back in style right?  I'm also really loving not having to blow dry my hair or dress up or put make-up on. I feel like I'm giving my hair and skin a healthy break!

I just wanted to check in and say a quick hello!  I'm still alive over here. Got some fun posts planned coming up!

What have you all been up to? Enjoying the last month of summer?
