UPDATE: FDA Investigates WEN Hair Loss
July 2016 — The FDA is investigating reports of hair loss, hair breakage, balding, itching, and rash associated with the use of WEN Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean. The agency has received 127 adverse event reports. Another 21,000 complaints have been sent to Chaz Dean and Guthy-Renker. Click here to read more.
WEN Class Action Lawsuits
WEN Cleansing Conditioner is a “5-in-1” product that takes the place of shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner. It claims to clean hair without lather or harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate.
“It contains virtually no cleanser. It’s like using lotion to wash your hair, so instead of removing the product, when you rinse it off, it just becomes impacted in your hair follicle.”
The attorney represented more than 200 women in 40 different states as of December 2015, but says “thousands or tens of thousands” of individuals all over the United States may be eligible to join.
WEN Cleansing Conditioner Lawsuits
One of the victims is a woman named Amy Friedman who filed the first WEN class action (PDF) in July 2014. In January, she paid $29.95 for WEN Cleansing Conditioner in “Sweet Almond Mint.”
She began experiencing hair loss after just two weeks, and continued losing hair for another three weeks after she stopped using the product. In an attempt to regrow her hair and hide the damage, she bought hair extensions and vitamins. Friedman accuses Guthy-Renker, the manufacturer of WEN, of actively concealing reports of hair loss, putting corporate profits above the health and well-being of their customers.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a law firm in Texas, but we are not filing a WEN class action lawsuit against Guthy-Renker. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who experienced severe hair damage, including:
- Severe hair loss
- Thinning hair
- Hair discoloration
- Visible bald spots
- Hair breakage
- Scalp irritation
About Class Actions
Class actions have been filed against Guthy-Renker by people who are seeking reimbursement. If compensation is awarded, everyone who bought WEN could receive a refund. However, this type of lawsuit is not designed to maximize compensation for people who were injured.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Members of class actions sometimes must accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement. Instead of a class action, our attorneys specialize in helping individual victims of defective products seek justice and compensation for severe injuries.
We are very concerned that hundreds of people — including young children — have lost most of their hair after using WEN Hair Care products.
Hair loss is disfiguring, embarrassing, and expensive to treat. Recovery can take months or years. If you decide to file a lawsuit, we may be able to help you recover compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial losses — and more.
