Chaz Dean and Wen: A Holistic Hair Duo for the Future

With humble beginnings, creator of Wen hair care products Chaz Dean was inspired at a young age to see the beauty in all things, leading to an interest in photography. Photography carried him into adulthood where he later went to beauty school so he might be able to capture what he felt to be the essence of his human subjects.

After attending beauty school he set up shop in a salon as an assistant. Eventually his prowess grew with hard work and he quickly became a stylist where upon he started to develop Wen Cleansing Conditioner – a sulfate free alternative to damaging shampoos. As he developed a clientele, his notoriety grew and soon enough celebrities were paying him regular visits so he might revitalize their hair and make it manageable once more. Now the product is available everywhere, including online at major retailers such as Sephora and eBay.

Dean’s holistic approach to hair care drove him to only use all natural ingredients in Wen’s products such as Glycerin, Chamomile Extract, Wild Cherry Bark, Rosemary Extract, and Panthenol rather then traditional sulfate based ingredients that strip the hair of its natural oils. After testing his products on his clients with much success, Dean expanded the Wen hair product line beyond a cleansing conditioner. Today the Wen hair empire offers natural styling mouses and deep conditioning cremes for damaged hair with a total of over 40 million bottles sold of varying hair treatments since the product line launched.

Soft And Manageable Hair

There are a few hair hacks that Wengie uses on a regular basis to keep the hair manageable, soft and aromatic. Push a dryer sheet onto the bristles of the hair to decrease the amount of frizz while giving the hair a fresh scent. If you want to make your ponytail look longer, all you have to do is create a high ponytail on the top of the head and a lower one at the base of the neck. This will give the illusion that you have longer hair. Make sure you hide the second one by teasing the hair so that it blends with the top.

A hair mask before you shampoo is a good way to condition the hair without weighing it down. Coconut oil is ideal to use on the hair so that it will be shiny and healthy. Make sure you massage the oil or the hair mask into the scalp. The scalp is an important part of the head as this is where the healthiest part of the hair is located.  A T-shirt also works great for drying the hair instead of using a towel as the fabric from the shirt is softer. Use a foundation brush with hairspray to smooth down the hairs at the scalp that tend to fly away. You can also spray the product on your brush to tame the rest of the hair, especially if it’s frizzy.

Not wearing a bold lip with bright eyes and vice versa is one of the rules. However, it can be a creative look if done cautiously and artistically.

Her love of color allows her to pick shoes and socks that are of a contrast toe to add color to the look.

Another rule is that with colored hair, you can only put on black or any other neutral color. This rule seems to portray the ability of fashion to stand color and personality. However, she advises that you can put on certain colors that suit the shade of your hair color. The rule on dressing your age does not apply to Deere. She believes that if you like it, no matter the age, wear it.
