Hundreds of women say hair care products made hair fall out

- More than 200 women claim in a class-action lawsuit that Wen shampoos and conditioners caused their hair to fall out.

The products, seen frequently in late-night infomercials starring hair stylist Chaz Dean, have been endorsed by celebs like Alyssa Milano, Angie Harmon and Brooke Shields.

The Daily Beast reported:  According to court papers, nurse practitioner Amy Friedman bought the WEN Sweet Almond Mint basic kit in January of 2014 for $29.95, and within two weeks “began losing substantial and abnormal amounts of hair.” The shedding continued, she said, for approximately three weeks after she stopped using WEN, and eventually resulted in her losing “one quarter to one third” of the hair on her head. In an attempt to regrow her hair, she claims that she was forced to spend a substantial amount money on vitamins and extensions to mask the loss.

The suit alleges that Friedman’s complaint is only the tip of the iceberg—and states that the number of potential plaintiffs in the class suit could number “in the thousands or tens of thousands.”
