These formulas both clean and condition hair, so you can skip the two product routine. There’s an array of choices from luxury to value to suit different hair needs, and we’ve found the pick of the bunch.

Neutrogena T/Gel 2-in-1

Unclogs hair follicles

Another of our picks that’s anti-dandruff, this 2-in-1 uses salicylic acid to combat the flakes. Its purpose is to work on the outermost layer of skin, so flakes wash away, and it also promises to cleanse pores and prevent oil build-up. With a melon and jasmine scent, it’ll suit if you like a natural aroma.

Luxury choice
