A Dermatologist Gives Her Opinion On WEN's Class-Action Lawsuit

Whether you’ve tried it yourself or not, chances are that you’ve definitely heard of WEN hair care created by celebrity hairstylist Chaz Dean. WEN is the master of late night infomercials and is a pioneer of the “no-poo” movement. Despite all the overwhelming popularity, women are claiming that WEN products are making their hair fall out. In fact, over 200 women are filing a class-action lawsuit against the brand and infomercial giant Gunthy-Renker.

Many women have been posting pictures online showing pieces of hair that have fallen out. However, Chaz Dean has refuted these claims, saying in a statement to People, “There is no scientific evidence to support any claim that our hair care products caused anyone to lose their hair. There are many reasons why individuals may lose their hair, all unrelated to WEN. We intend to vigorously contest the allegations made.”

“We take great pride in the quality of our products and believe every product meets our high standards. We want all of our customers to have positive experiences with our products, and we encourage any customer with any questions to contact us,” the statement continued.

A spokesperson from Gunthy-Renker, Joe Hixson, also backs up the brand’s products, saying, “With well over 10 million WEN products shipped since 2008, our customers’ overwhelmingly positive response to WEN is a testament to the benefits it can deliver for its users. These benefits are reflected in consistently high rankings from independent consumer product sites as well.”

To investigate this issue further, People talked to dermatologist Dr. Nicole Rogers to get her opinion on the issue. “I really think what they’re going to find is just a vast majority of these are coincidence and mainly caused by hair loss that’s unrelated to the product,” she told the magazine. “There were pictures of women who have typical female pattern hair loss. There were also pictures of people with alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune form of hair loss.”

We will have to wait and see what the courts rule!
