The Shampoo Plus Conditioner That Saves Time and Really Works

Today's pick comes from Racked SF editor Kristen Philipkoski.

Wen Cleansing Conditioner, $49.50 at QVC

I've always thought a shampoo and conditioner in one would be genius if I could find one that actually worked. After decades of searching, I had given up on that particular small luxury until I recently came across some gushing online comments about Wen Cleansing Conditioner. I went out on a limb and bought a bottle, with fantasies of cutting down on my getting-ready time and actually arriving early for appointments occasionally.

Lo and behold, it left my hair not only clean, but tangle free, which is a major feat considering I have very long, thick and color-treated hair. It also smells great—I tried the sweet almond mint, which has a pleasantly tingly effect. Tip: The instructions say you need like 15 pumps but I only need five or six.
