Do you have unexplained hair loss? According to some consumers involved in a class action lawsuit, this popular hair product is to blame for female hair loss.


It’s a popular brand of hair care product with alluring infomercials that promise beautiful, luxurious hair; however, reportedly hundreds of women who have used it say they've suffered hair loss, damage and other injuries.

In a recent NBC News report, claims are being filed in court that accuse the popular WEN Hair Care product line for causing female hair loss as consumers are bringing its maker to court in a class action lawsuit as reported in this video:

Should You Be Worried About the Lawsuit Claims?

The Wen hair care line is promoted by celebrity stylist Chaz Dean who along with Wen marketers made an official statement stating that:

‘”There is no scientific evidence whatsoever 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 hair care products.”

In their defense, their statement is accurate. Without any real scientific study there is no evidence to support claims that their product is the cause of baldness in some women. Furthermore, yes, there are many causes of hair loss that could have nothing to do with the WEN hair care line.

But according to the NBC News report, hundreds of women are involved in the lawsuit claiming damages for hair loss. Isn’t this evidence of its own that something is amiss? Not necessarily so.

According to an Emaxhealth.com article earlier this year, “…Hair loss affects up to 40 percent of the female population and more than half of women older than 50,” citing a new study that showed that the use of certain nutrients can result in a significant improvement in women who suffer with female hair loss.

In other words, reports of "hundreds of women" affected with baldness possibly due to a certain hair care product is really meaningless mathematically when you consider the much larger number of women overall who suffer from thinning hair regardless of what product(s) they use.

If you believe that you are suffering from some unnatural and unexplained hair loss, health experts advise patients that the sooner you see a health professional the better it is for you and your hair. In many cases that hair loss can be stopped with treatment before the problem becomes irreversible. Dr. Oz tells viewers that hair loss is often due to medical imbalances and nutritional deficiencies that can be stopped and reversed through changes in lifestyle and diet.
