Shorten Your Shower Time with the Best 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioners

You probably have childhood memories of using an outrageously foamy 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner that most likely featured a cloying aroma and came housed in an unwieldy, super-sized bottle. Today, this category still exists, but in a more upmarket, less chemical-y, and nicer-smelling iteration.

In the past, these multitaskers did an adequate job of cleaning hair thanks to the aforementioned harsh cleansing agents but fell short when it came to conditioning. The new class actually fulfills both steps, leaving hair feeling thoroughly free of dirt and build-up as well as soft and manageable. Here are eight 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioners that will cut some time out of your shower routine without leaving you feeling like you missed a step.

Jack Black Double Header Shampoo + Conditioner – $32

Perfect for dry or flaky scalps, this coconut oil and kelp-powered formula washes away grease and product build-up while untangling and imparting moisture. Plus, creatine strengthens breakage-prone strands.

A vast improvement on the original category’s cheap fragrance, this one leaves hair and scalp clean, nourished, and smelling of a woodsy blend of cedar, sandalwood, and eucalyptus essential oils.

Every Man Jack 2-in-1 Daily Shampoo + Conditioner – $8

To achieve the foam party level of lather some people prefer, this multitasker uses coconut-derived surfactants rather than controversial sulfates.

Duke Cannon News Anchor 2-in-1 Hair Wash – $14

Okay, so technically not a 2-in-1 (since it can also be used as a body wash), but we’re still big fans of this American Crew product. Why? It packs one hell of a reinvigorating punch thanks to its use of both sage leaf extract and citric acid. Great for a morning shower or post-gym cleanse, this shampoo/conditioner is sure to become a bathroom favorite.
