The Truth About 2-in-1 Shampoos/Conditioners

2-in-1 shampoos/conditioners may sound like the best thing since sliced bread, but does a product like this really work?  Is it worse than, as good as, or better than using two individual bottles?

Time Saving Solution

Yes, we all live busy lives and saving a few minutes here and there is helpful.  But is it worth sacrificing the health of your hair?

Can Cause Build Up in Your Hair

The role of shampoo is to cleanse, and the role of conditioner is to moisturize.  Using a combination product may in fact be locking in dirt and oils by not allowing the shampoo to work like it should.  This will result in your hair having buildup, which means you’ll need to wash it out with a clarifying shampoo, making the concept of a 2-in-1 bottle counterintuitive.

The Results Are Out of Your Control

When using a 2-in-1 product you don’t have any control over how much conditioner you’re putting into your hair.

For example, if you have fine, healthy hair you might find that your shampoo/conditioner combo works great for you. On the other hand, your friend who suffers from dry hair might not receive as much conditioning as they need. Some people may even get too much moisture from their 2-in-1 bottle, making their hair greasy.

Being able to customize your hairs needs by using taking separate steps for shampooing and conditioning will help keep your locks healthier.
