Farewell my HG Conditioner: Wella’s Wellazid

Anyone seen or used this before? Wellazid is a herbal conditioner made by Wella. This was my first ever conditioner and I never used anything else for my hair….. that is until Wella discontinued it (I think). I can’t find any information on this lovely conditioner anywhere! They used to be available at nearly all supermarkets in the late 1990s. According to Mum. I was too young to notice =p
Anyway, I last saw these conditioners in 2002, not in KL but in one of Kelantan’s supermarkets where they were going for RM18 for a 750ml bottle. I suspect they were getting rid of old stock as the conditioner has been discontinued but anyhow Dad and Mum quickly grabbed them all and that stock lasted me a year and a half. After that, I switched to using L’occitane’s conditioner (they are really good) and haven’t looked back since. I am surprisingly loyal to my hair care brands… If they work well for me!
Fast forward a good 8 years later. By chance, I stumbled upon this 1litre bottle at the boyfriend’s family hairdresser when I was home last sumer. Without thinking I told the hairdresser I wanted to purchase it (it was the LAST BOTTLE and was sitting on top of a cupboard, collecting dust). and she charged me a hefty RM68 for it! ACK. I then got reprimanded by the boyfriend for jumping the gun as he thinks the conditioner might have gone off by then (HE WAS RIGHT, BY THE WAY.) The conditioner smelt a little funny but I didn’t have the heart to chuck it in the bin as I carried it all the way back to Kent. No way am I gonna throw a good kilogram of my favourite conditioner in the WORLD away. Hmph. Didn’t do any damage to my hair though. Only the scent was… funky would be the appropriate word for it lol!
I was so desperate to get more bottles of this that I even asked the hairdresser if she will be getting anymore stock in. Well, the hairdresser mentioned this conditioner was still available (oh really?). I asked her where can I get it and she said 
‘Europe got mah. You go back London and see lah.’
*switches to Manglish mode*
I’m now back in London but where got Wellazid? I see no Wellazid! You cheat me! 
So enlighten me, someone. 
No more Wellazid *sniffs* Bye bye HG conditioner! =(

    My gal said that Wella Malaysia no longer produces Wellazid conditioner. But she did stumble upon a green conditioner that smells exactly like Wellazid that came in a gallon bottle for RM25.00. Pretty cheap, eh?

      Hi Dirlene,

      It's good to know someone else out there liked using Wellazid as much as I did! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any over here in Malaysia either. =( It has been discontinued, apparently! =(

    I have used this product for nearly 40 years and was lucky enough to buy some from Salon Services in Spain. Unfortunately they have now stopped selling it. I saw some in Dubai 2 years ago but haven’t been back there since. This product was fabulous. Why Wella stopped making it I will never know. It was sold in all the Gulf States when I lived there in the 80,s so there maybe some stock left. If you are lucky.
    We should bombard Wella with requests to reintroduce this product again as it was never really marketed as an off the shelf product more of a salon product.

      Hello Lesley, thank you for dropping by! I've never been to the Gulf States, but I suppose bombarding Wella with tons of 'BRING WELLAZID BACK' e-mails might just do the trick! 😉 I didn't know Wellazid was marketed as a salon product! We used to buy it off the shelves in supermarkets here in Malaysia! xx

    Please bring it back wella! I used it for 40 years too! Never had another hair conditioner like it.

      Me too! I don’t understand why they discontinued it!

    This was certainly the best conditioner ever until it disappeared.Maybe because unfortunately it was more expensive than other brands.However for me at least it remains irreplaceable until today.

      It’s the same for me here, have been through countless brands, both drugstore and saloon ones but nothing compares to Wellazid!
