WEN vs. Renpure Solutions Ren Cleansing Conditioner

I picked up a few cleansing conditioners to try to find something comparable to WEN 613 due to the expensive price tag. I bought Ren Cleansing Conditioner in Rosemary Mint by Renpure Solutions.  Ren has similar cleansing properties as WEN 613.  Ren foams as does WEN; however, Ren did not help detangle my hair as well as WEN.  Ren also does not have as much slip.  When used as a leave in Ren did not absorb into my hair but instead sort of foamed.  Ren is much thinner in consistency than WEN 613 as you can see in the photo when I put both products on top of my hand.  WEN 613 is very thick while the Ren was running into my fingers.  I felt like I had to use more Ren, 12 pumps for my wash, while I can use 5 – 6 pumps of WEN each for my first and second wash.  I find that WEN coats my hair and makes my curls clump, which I like, but Ren did not.  My hair wasn’t necessarily dirty so I can’t say Ren gets all of the product build up out since I only had an aloe serum on my hair it for the last 2 days after a wash with As I Am Coconut Cowash.  I was swimming and had to wash out the chlorine.

Although I will use this bottle of Ren until it’s done, I can’t say that I will buy it again.  I love the price point of $9.49 for a 16 ounce bottle (Walgreen’s) but felt it was not comparable enough to replace my WEN 613.

If you have not tried WEN then I do think you may like Ren; however, going from WEN to Ren is not an option for my hair.  I ended up rinsing out the Ren leave in (2 pumps) and using WEN 613 as my leave in (also 2 pumps).

I also purchased Loreal Cleansing Conditioners but returned them since I am looking for an all in one product that can shampoo, condition, deep condition, detangle and be left in.
