Going on holiday soon so trying to save on space weight etc etc. Can anyone recommend a really nice shower gel that I can double up as a shampoo.

My hair is fairly dry so needs to be something gentle as I shower and wash hair at least once a day.

What's wrong with buying the shampoo when you arrive on holiday or at the airport after you've cleared security?

I love Aveda Shampure shampoo. It's gentle, effetive and smells lovely. I use it on my hair, body and to wash delicates such as cashmere.

I'd do it the other way, shampoo to wash, the shower gel/shampoo combo are really drying.

Philosophy do one, their body washes are 3 in 1, wash, shampoo and bubble bath. They're all really yummy fragrances like this.
You can buy at department stores for around £10

Lush Happy Hippy says on the label it's for body and hair, though I've only ever used it as shower gel. Or maybe take one of Lush's solid shampoos?

Thanks for all your suggestions.

JackieNo forgot about Lush now I have liked some of their stuff in the past so will seek out on my next shopping trip

Have you looked in the mens' grooming section? For some reason there are a lot of multipurpose products there and some lovely smells.

The Lush solid shampoos work really well as all over washes. The ones with conditioner in are particularly nice on the hair. Great as they are light, compact, last for ages, and can go in hand luggage without counting as liquid

Baby top to toe? My ds's hair is gorgeous and shiney!

I use Lush Ultimate Shine for hair and body and washing things by hand on holiday.

Doesn't spill, can be packed into a nice tin.
