DALLAS — A local attorney is suing Hollywood hairstylist Chaz Dean in federal court, alleging that one of his popular WEN products causes some women to lose clumps of their hair.”As I was shampooing my hair with it, I was noticing handfuls of hair,” said Cindy Peterson, a former customer. “Because my hair was so thick, I didn’t notice it right away.”She said she first used the WEN Cleansing Conditioner in October 2014, and said some of her hair still hasn’t grown back.
I use WEN, have for going on 8 years. I noticed that my hair was thinning around my ‘widow’s’ peak – and I found that a lot more hair was around the shower drain than usual. Around the time I first used WEN my menopause symptoms began to bother me and my doctor prescribed a pill to help relieve night sweats, the name of this pill was clonidine (generic name) Catapres (brand name) and one of its many side effects was hair loss (PDR 266). I visited a dermatologist and she concurred that the pill was responsible for my hair loss – she prescribed Rogaine to regrow my hair. I decided not to get any because it only works when you use it and its chemical base causes more harm than good. I would have liked it if my doctor had discussed the fact that my hair could be affected and let me decide if I wanted to take the risk – I dumped clonidine fast. Flash forward to 2015: My hair has gradually grown back and I still use WEN, wouldn’t consider using anything else for the tangles alone! Favorite: Children’s Watermelon!
