Wen Cleansing Conditioner Side Effects: Hair Loss, Hair Breakage, and Baldness? Does Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner cause hair loss or baldness?
Users of the product have reported hair loss after using Wen Cleansing Conditioner to both the US Food and Drug Administration and Chaz Dean but the company, in a statement, insists that its product is safe to use.

The agency also revealed that a total of 21,000 complaints of adverse reactions were submitted to Chaz Dean, Inc. and Guthy Renker LLC, the companies that market and manufacture the products.
Also in 2016, a class action suit were filed against Chaz Dean and Guth Renker by those who suffered adverse events from using Wen Cleansing Conditioner.
Sweet Almond Mint (see photo above) is the most complained about with with a total of 5,689 reporting adverse reactions. It is followed by Lavender (2,537 complaints) and Pomegranate (1,542 complaints).
Anyhoo, here’s the statement issued by the US FDA:
FDA previously announced that it is conducting an investigation of adverse event reports for WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner products, including reports of hair loss, hair breakage, balding, itching and rash.
FDA has received and continues to receive reports of adverse events, as the investigation is still ongoing. In the course of its investigations, the FDA is looking at all sources of information, in order to better understand the consumer reports of adverse events.
There are many potential causes of hair loss, including, for example, certain illnesses, medications, hormonal changes, rapid weight loss or gain, anemia, and high-stress life events, and these factors are being taken into account as the FDA continues to investigate these reports. If you experience hair loss, you should contact your healthcare provider.
As with any cosmetic product, if you experience an adverse event that you think may be related to use of WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner, you should also cease using the product and report the event to the FDA.
