Review: Wen Pomegranate Replenishing Treatment Mist

I've been using Wen products for awhile now, almost two years, but I decided to try to Replenishing Treatment Mist about two months ago. My hair was getting really static-y and was getting a lot of fly-aways from the dry winter air, so I figured it was about time.

It's comes in a regular spray bottle (the label is pretty, though) like any other "mist" you can think of. I was really hesitant to try it, because anything that is going to give moisture to my roots (even though I probably have pretty normal roots, not too dry or too oily) sounded like a bad idea. So, to avoid the direct contact of the spray to my roots, I decided to spray a little on my comb after getting out of the shower. It worked out great! My fly-aways were gone and it didn't make my hair greasy at all! And when you're combing it through your hair, you can smell the scent of the mist (in my case, pomegranate) and it just smells awesome. I absolutely love it. Sometimes I even use it on days when I don't wash my hair, just to eliminate the static. I can imagine this working for all hair types, since it doesn't add any grease but still gives your hair some moisture if it's feeling dry. I also sometimes spray a little on my ends if they're feeling dry.

The back of the bottle states it can be used on the face and body as well as the hair, but I've never tried it. I'm pretty wary about what I put on my face since I have sensitive skin. If you do, let me know what you think!

You can get a 12 oz. bottle for around $60 at Amazon or Sears, which sounds like A LOT, but QVC has a ton of sets that make it a lot cheaper. You can get a 6 oz. bottle by itself for $30 on QVC They come in a bunch of different scents (as seen in the variety pack: Sweet Almond Mint, Lavender, Tea Tree, Fig, Cucumber Aloe, and other ones not even included in this) and some scents are cheaper than others (the Green Tea one is $5 cheaper for some unknown reason). And this bottle lasts FOREVER. It's a big purchase that will last you a long time. My bottle looks completely full and unused, even though I've been using it and I've been using it almost daily for two months straight. A 2oz. bottle would probably last you at least a few months, if you wanted to try it out and see how you liked it. I just got the big bottle in a set because it was cheaper that way. I think it is absolutely worth it and I now consider it a staple in my hair routine (which is a very short routine, I assure you, I'm not very fussy about my hair).

What is your day-to-day hair routine? I love to learn new things to try on my hair to keep it healthy!

With love,
