What I want to know is do you buy your shampoo and conditioner separately OR do you buy shampoo and conditioner all in one? WHAT are your reasons for purchasing the way you do? When you buy shampoo and conditioner all in one is it because its cheaper? OR Do you have other reasons for purchasing the way you do? Personally I buy them separately. I find I don't need to use a conditioner on my hair everyday, once or twice a week is usually enough for me. I have tried using shampoo and conditioner all in one but it makes my hair look so dull and drab and feels greasy after a couple of shampoo's So what about everyone else. Which do you prefer and why? ~proudnana~

It depends on my budget. When i have a big budget for shopping i always buying shampoo and conditioner separate from each other. But when i have a shortage, i prefer to buy 2n1 shampoo and conditioner but i choose the brand usually it's pantene coz my hair likes this brand. Happy posting.

its funny how your hair likes a certain brand isn't it? I guess that's the way my hair is with the 2n1 shampoo and conditioner. My hair just doesn't like it... lol

I hate the two-in-one shampoo+conditioner bottles. Especially when my hair is long, it gets more difficult to manage because of that. I have to use them separately so that I am washing it out the right way both times. When I use them separately, I always use conditioner, and it makes it easier for me to get through my hair afterwards.

I hate them too, It makes my hair look awful and it looks like my hair hasn't been washed at all. I'd rather spend the extra money and buy them separately. Thank you for the response ~proudnana~

I've tried using a shampoo and conditioner in one, and you're right it didn't make my hair soft. So I prefer the separate shampoo and conditioner, for it really makes my hair manageable and smooth (except for bad hair days), I like them separate because I can use one of them sometimes when I feel like using only a conditioner or vice versa.

oh them bad hair days, don't you just hate them? I dread those days. I have even seen me re-washing my hair to see if that would make any improvement, but no such luck. Its like every strand of hair has a mind of its own and is out to get you.. lol

I have to have the shampoo and conditioner seperate, I have tried to use the 2 in 1 products, and they never do a really good job on my hair. I know that everyone has different hair types, and everyone needs a different product to work on their hair, but for me I can not use the ones that are combined, I need the seperate ones, or else my hair will not turn out right. I think you find alot of people use seperate too.

I think you're right about people using them separately. I tend to have tooo many bad hair days when they are combined.

I use both shampoo and conditioner. But, I try to change each month or two to a different kind. So, that way I don't get tired of it. Also, I tried all-in-one and I feel I just don't get that soft feeling I do when I use them separate. Also, it depends if it is summer time and I am tanning. I put baby oil in my hair when I tan so my hair does not dry out so fast. And, I use the shampoo twice then the conditioner once to get all the oil out of my hair when I am done tanning! I have always done that. ** Peace and Love get's you through everything in Life **

Actually it depends on the length of my hair...if it's cut short the way I like it, I use an all in one and if it's growing out and longer then I use seperate ones. I find that with longer hair I need the extra conditioner. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG AND TRUST IN GOD**[/b]

yes i find the longer your hair it is it DOES require extra care, so extra conditioner is needed. I have short hair now and don't have to condition my hair as much as what I did when it was longer.

I prefer shampoo and conditoner separately.. Not because its cheaper for me.. But using an all in one shampoo is gonna do nothing.. If you can't buy a conditioner then its better with just a shampoo instead of using an all in one shampoo. I have read it in and article as well which was exclusively for hair care tips and advice. It also said not to use all in one shampoos. And now you exactly know the reason why! My hair needs conditioner every day (though I don't follow that rule) Its way to wazy , frizzy and and dry.. But I still do not use an all in one shampoo. Instead I wait until my mother bring me a conditioner.javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$cphMainContent$lbStart','')

makes you wonder how its possible for a shampoo and conditioner work well together, shampoo is for cleaning, conditioner is for protecting and moisturizing the hair. It sure does strange things to my hair LOL

Hi proudnana I use only shampoo.I don't need a conditioner for my hair. I am not having much hair to maintain.I am baldy! Whatever little hair I have that also get dirtied due to dust etc on the road. When I go out alone I use only my two wheeler.So I can't avoid the dust on my hair. So I use some good brand of shampoo weekly.After shampoo I apply some pure coconut oil on head which takes hair of the hair.Majority of the Indians use some type of hair oil on their head.Only young generations don't apply any oil on their head. Happy mylotting

That's interesting about using hair oil on your hair, Why is it the younger generations don't need to apply it?

I just Hate 2n1. after using it I usually don't feel like I used any conditioner on my hair. if I ever use 2n1 I usually apply extra conditioner. maybe that's becasue my hair is so dry and damaged.

Hi proudnana, I used to use two in one shampoo and conditioner, on quite a regular basis. This was years ago, but I came to realize that it wasn't doing anything for my hair. Too much build up left behind, and since I have very fine, oily type hair, it didn't do anything to enhance the appearance. Nowadays, I always use separate products. I find that Clairal herbal essence works well for me, but sometimes will change it up, as this is good for the hair. I like Garnier Fructose too. Take care.

hiya someonesmom, Its good to hear from you, Yes its good to change your shampoos every now and then, I do that as well to prevent the residual build up and, I find the product works better when you go back to using it again. I use Outrageous on a continuous basis, I was actually surprised at how well this product worked as its fairly inexpensive and sometimes for a change I use the clairal herbal essence. Take care! ~proudnana~

I buy them separately. Shampoo-conditioner in one doesn't feel right for my hair - I only count that as shampoo and still apply conditioner. I have natural curls that turn frizzy when not cared for well so I apply hot oil conditioner every day - it's actually cheap, I buy them from Watsons. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I had a friend quite a few years ago who had natural curls, she always had trouble with shampoos and conditioners and could never seem to find the right one help control the frizz. That's great you have found something to control your frizzies.. thanks for response

I only buy the 2 in 1....Its more convienient and quicker...
• Canada
28 Jan 09
And not to mention more economical, A lot of people cant use the 2 in 1 because of the way their hair reacts to the product, If my hair liked the product it certainly would be my number one choice. ~proudnana~

I'm all for short cuts when it comes to saving a few pennies here and there, but unfortunately this one doesn't apply to me,

I really don’t have much faith on the conditioners. I use a mild herbal shampoo which is quite good both in price and quality. Since in use it maybe twice or thrice in a week, my hair stays glossy and tangle-free. I can use a herbal conditioner of course, but that again is an extra expenditure. I did use some cosmetic shampoos which had conditioner combined and I like the effect too, but I would stick to my herbal ones

I like the herbal ones too, but only use them for a change from my regular shampoo (Outrageous) which is fairly inexpensive and is kind to my hair. lol ~proudnana~
