You may have heard of an all-in-one product called Wen (usually shows up late at night on infomercials, if you have cable). Antyways, it costs $30 for the entire introductory package which should last 30 days. Curlies are subject to PJ-ism as much as the next head, but $30 is a lot of money for a product that needs to be replenished frequently. While perusing my local Sally's (I can ALWAYS be found where there are hair products, especially conditioner), I noticed a new product-HairOne. My Sally's had an olive oil one, a jojoba oil one, and a tea tree one and they even had sample packets. The full-size bottle is $10.99 for 8 oz which is a great deal versus the Wen. Now, I have never used the Wen, but I do know that since going natural, I use conditioner like it's going out of style. According to the official site, you cannot order the conditioner seperately, so I figure you have to order the entire kit each time you run out of conditioner. CurlMart charges $28 (plus shipping and handling) for 16 oz. I usually spend about $5 for 28 oz of Herbal Essences or $6 for 33.5 oz of Aussie Moist, so Wen is a little steep for me.
Back to your regularly scheduled review: I used two packets of the Olive Oil Hair One, following my usual routine (co-wash twice and then more conditioner and comb through) except that I used the Hair One in place of the two conditioners I usually use. I found that I needed more product than what is recommended on the package (I used a whole packet to co-wash and a whole packet to comb-through). While my hair did not feel quite as moisturized as it usually does , I felt that my hair felt soft and conditioned overall and that this product would be good in a pinch or for travel.
***I also purchased two packets of the Jojoba Hair One that I will review at later time.
Stay curly, Cupcakes!
