During summer when physical and stressful activities like swimming, trekking and family reunions are on the go, nothing beats iitchy scalp caused by dandruff.

To be honest, I only use two shampoo brands alternately to combat the itch that keeps my hands busy even while uploading Press Releases at work. Good thing, Wen Cleansing Conditioner has reached the Philippine market to give me an option.

This morning, I completed using a 60ML pack of Wen Sweet Almond Mint. The experience is telling me that this new cleansing conditioner brand from the US is going to be a household brand in the near future.

Wen Cleansing Conditioner stands alone as a hair-to-scalp care. It does not need a separate shampoo solution.

When I was applying the conditioner on my scalp, it felt like I was putting ice to the roots of my hair. My hair is only one-inch long so I concentrated massaging the conditioner into my scalp. I do not give emphasis to my kinky hair.

In fairness to the conditioner, it left my scalp itch-free the whole day. In fact, this is the important effect I am looking for in a shampoo. I do not care about the smell of the hair that it gives after the shower. What I am after in a shampoo is how it helps me with the scalp itch caused by dandruff. I enjoyed the same effect until my third and final use of content of the pack.
