WEN Hair Care: No longer a hair-do, now a hair-dont
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports of hair loss, balding, rashes and other issues stemming from the use of the popular WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioners.
They’ve received 127 ‘adverse event reports’ from unhappy consumers – the most number of reports ever received by the agency regarding a hair care product.
The agency is also investigating more than 21,000 complaints related to Chaz Dean, Inc. and parent company, Gunther Renker, LLC.
Consumers who have experienced a reaction after using WEN conditioners are being urged to stop using the product immediately and consult with a dermatologist or healthcare provider.
The conditioners in question come in three varieties: Sweet Almond Mint, Lavender and Pomegranate.
Back in 2015, more than 200 people in 40 different states filed a class-action lawsuit against WEN Hair Care and Guthy-Renker. The lawsuit alleged that the manufacturer knew about the injuries being caused and the complaints they received, but refused to do anything about it.
The brand was popularized by it’s celebrity creator, Chaz Dean, as an alternative to traditional foamy shampoos, which is supposed to leave your hair healthier and shinier over time.
