I have 2 little boys who make taking a long shower nearly impossible, so I'm pretty well-versed on 2-in-1 shampoos. This is the one that I always go back to. I have heard/read about Pantene containing wax, and being bad for your hair, but I am happy with the results. Hair is clean and softer than with other brands I've tried. Shampooing and conditioning separately does work best, but when it's not an option, this does the trick.
