Chaz Dean Offers $25 Million WEN Class Action Settlement

August 15, 2016 — Consumers who went bald after using WEN Cleansing Conditioner could be eligible for up to $20,000 as part of a proposed $25 million class action lawsuit settlement. It would also provide $25 cash to everyone who bought WEN. Chaz Dean and the makers of WEN are accused of ignoring over 21,000 complaints and continuing to sell a product that was known to cause baldness.

FDA Investigates WEN Hair Loss

July 2016 — The FDA is investigating reports of hair loss, hair breakage, balding, itching, and rash associated with the use of WEN Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean. The agency has received 127 adverse event reports. Another 21,000 complaints have been sent to Chaz Dean and Guthy-Renker. Click here to read more.

Overview

WEN has been linked to hundreds of cases of severe hair loss. Baldness is physically disfiguring and emotionally stressful. It can take years for the hair to grow back. Sometimes it never does.

No one knows why so many cases of hair loss have been linked to WEN products. However, many of the complaints are linked to one product — WEN Cleansing Conditioner, a “5-in-1” product that claims to replace shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in-conditioner.

Lawyers in Texas who filed a lawsuit (PDF) in March 2015 now represent more than 200 women in 40 different states. One attorney told CBS DFW that the problem is not an ingredient, but the product itself:

“It contains virtually no cleanser. It’s like using lotion to wash your hair, so instead of removing the product, when you rinse it off, it just becomes impacted in your hair follicle.”

WEN Class Action Lawsuits

In July 2014, a class action (PDF) was filed in federal court in California by Amy Friedman, a woman who lost up to one-third of her hair after using WEN Cleansing Conditioner in “Sweet Almond Mint” for only two weeks. Friedman says the hair loss continued for three weeks after she stopped using the product. In an attempt to regrow her hair and hide the damage, Friedman says she spent money on vitamins and hair extensions.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, our lawyers are not filing a WEN class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people with severe side effects, such as:

  • Significant hair loss
  • Baldness
  • Thinning hair
  • Hair discoloration
  • Visible bald spots
  • Hair breakage
  • Scalp irritation
  • Rash

About Class Actions

The first class action against Guthy-Renker, the manufacturer of WEN, was filed in July 2014. This class action was filed by a woman who experienced hair loss, but she was seeking reimbursement for her purchases and for everyone else who bought the product. Since then, a growing number of lawsuits have been filed against Guthy-Renker.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Class actions are not usually intended to maximize compensation for people with severe injuries. Members may have to accept a “low-ball” settlement or higher attorneys’ fees. Even when compensation is awarded, everyone in the lawsuit must share.

Instead of a class action, our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits. We specialize in helping victims of defective products seek compensation for their injuries. If you decide to file a lawsuit, you could potentially receive compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial losses.
