WEN Hair Care Products Canadian Class Action

Documents

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against Guthy-Renker Canada Corp., Guthy-Renker LLC and WEN by Chaz Dean, Inc. for damages relating to WEN Hair Care Products on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious side effects after using the products, including:

• significant hair loss, stunted hair growth, hair breakage, brittle, limp and/or lifeless hair; and

• dermatitis, eczema, blistering, rash, scabbing, peeling, reddening and swelling, sore, tender, and/or irritated scalp, itchiness, redness.

WEN Hair Care Products are sold predominantly through celebrity-driven infomercials, as well as through other outlets, including Sephora, Amazon and As Seen on TV. They are marketed as a lather-free alternative to regular hair products that provide “fuller, stronger, healthier-looking hair”. To the contrary, the class action alleges that these are false and misleading statements, and further, the Defendants failed to provide adequate warning regarding the serious risks and negative side effects associated with the use of their WEN Hair Care Products.

The Wen Hair Care Products at issue in this lawsuit include all fragrances and variations of: Cleansing Conditioner, Re-Moist Mask, Treatment Mist Duo, Treatment Oil, SIXTHIRTEEN Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Treatment, Re Moist Intensive Hair Treatment, Styling Crème, Anti-Frizz Styling Crème, Nourishing Mousse, Volumizing Treatment Spray, Replenishing Treatment Mist, Defining Paste, Straightening Smoothing Gloss, Smoothing Glossing Serum, Glossing Shine Serum, Finishing Treatment Crème, Volumizing Root Lift, Texturizing Spray, Detangling Treatment Spray, Men Control Texture, Men Hair and Body Oil, Bath, Body and Hair Oil, and Texture Balm.

The United States Food and Drug Administration (the “U.S. FDA”) has already investigated claims of hair loss and numerous complaints have been made by consumers all over the internet. In fact, there were 1,386 adverse events reported to the U.S. FDA by November 15, 2016. Despite notice and knowledge of the problems caused by WEN Hair Care Products, they nonetheless fail to advise consumers of the serious risks associated to them and continue to mislead consumers about their safety. Moreover, WEN Hair Care Products have not been recalled, nor have customers been offered proper compensation for their damages.
