When it’s time to hit the showers and get clean, taking a long and relaxing steam sounds amazing. But that’s not always possible when you’re behind on time. Whether you’re running late for work, rushing to get clean at the gym, or just simply want to streamline your grooming routine as much as possible, a great all-in-one shampoo, conditioner, and body wash makes it easy to cleanse your hair and body at the same time using the same formula.
3-in-1 products help to speed up showering, but they also provide a convenient alternative to shopping for three different products. Using one bottle in the shower that takes care of all your cleaning and conditioning needs means less plastic waste, less time shopping, and a higher likelihood of not forgetting whether you’ve already conditioned your hair. We can’t be the only ones who like to daydream in the shower.
What to Consider When Buying an All-In-One Cleanser
Shopping for an all-in-one cleanser should be a pretty straightforward process. However, just as you would with regular shampoo or body wash, you’ll want to look for something that fits your hair and skin type. Although some brands may not indicate specific hair types, there are many specifically formulated for dry, normal, or oily hair. When shopping, look for wording that refers to issues such as excess oil, dry scalp, or dandruff if needed. You’ll want to do the same thing as far as your skin is concerned, particularly If you have sensitivities. Choosing a scent that suits your personal preferences is also not a bad idea, since you’ll be essentially wearing it on both your hair and body all day.
How We Chose the Best All-In-One Cleanser
When making our selections, we were careful to choose products that were beneficial for different skin and hair types. We added in products that are good for sensitive skin as well as others that are good for beards and all hair types.
We then were diligent in examining the cleanser’s overall formula, taking harsh chemicals into consideration while also pointing out ingredients that are good for the skin and hair.
Lastly, we inspected each of them for scent. Although this is mostly a matter of personal preference, we added all-in-one products that were light-smelling and not too harsh on the senses.
If you’re ready to save time and energy and still smell and look great, check out our picks for the best 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash combos.
