This product is OK; I am not totally into the WEN products for my hair. I wanted to try it out, thought. I know WEN is a good product, but I do believe for my hair type, it is overrated. The advertisements seem to convey a miraculous result to your hair, but I find that it is just as good as just about any other shampoo or conditioner that would cost much less than the WEN products. Effectiveness Because this is a shampoo/conditioner all in one, it does work, but I feel better using two products. I don't know if that's because it's what I am used to, but I just get a cleaner feeling when I use a shampoo and then a conditioner afterwards. I don't necessarily have to have an all in one type product. That is because sometimes I do not want to put conditioner in my hair. I do not like the feeling of weighed down hair. Sometimes I feel the WEN products do that. Scent I am not particularly fond of the WEN scents. They are not overwhelming, but they do have a distinct minty smell; I just can't describe it completely, but I just do not like the smell.
