shampoo and conditioner in one product - any recommendations?

I've just spent (wasted) £18 on a highly recommended hair cleanser by Percy and Reed called Wonder Cleanse and Nourish. On the back of a fab review I read about it I was hoping it would work like magic on my naturally curly/frizzy hair as you simply apply it to wet hair, leave a few mins then rinse - no conditioner needed. (I love the idea of not having to rinse then condition separately.) Problem for me is that it kind of works too well! I've experimented a bit with it but given up on it now - it just leaves my hair too soft and fluffy. One thing I really like about it is it's sulphate-free and detergent-free and smells lovely. My question is, are there any similar products out there I can try? hmm

Taking two bottles into the shower? confused

I just wanna wash my hair and go! (Do they still actually make this stuff?!)

Palmers cleansing conditioner (I like the olive based one)
As I am coconut co wash

I have tried two Percy and reed prodcts and neither has done what it says on the tin.

I have curly hair and I shampoo like 1.8 times a week. Just condition most of the time and shampoo when the greasiness comes.

I second Ollivander, Palmers Olive Oil Co-Wash is really good, it has completely changed my hair.

I use Revlon 2 in 1 sulphate free. On amazon - white bottle with gold stripe

Maybe it's styling products you need rather than washing/conditioning products?

If the one you have is getting you nice and moisturised then you'd probably be ok to scrunch some gel through, leave it to dry, then scrunch out the crunch. No brushing curly hair!

My hair is well conditioned, but with no gel it's just fluff.

I have never brushed my hair - it's too curly, quite coarse and prone to knotting; I don't even use a comb except when /if I comb conditioner through it when wet! I finger-comb it day to day, using a little hair oil to de-tangle. TBH I've been looking for answers to my hair-washing challenges all my adult life, and the quest continues....! smile

My friend has curly hair and follows the Curly Girl method. I think it's basically no shampoo, just conditioner. And SLS free etc... she swears by it. Worth a Google?

I'd recommend Garnier Fructis strength & shine 2-in-1
It's quite difficult to get now in the shops but Amazon still have it.

runner2 mine is curly too, honestly give the Palmers one a go.

I use a leave in conditioner, Argan oil, or currently a Brazilian keratin oil one. I don't have curly hair, just fine and goes frizzy round the edges.

Lots of new options to try - thank you! RunningMommy I am going to buy some Palmers Olive right now grin
