    I just mix my regular shampoo & conditioner together in the palm of my hand rather than buy a 2 in 1. Have used 2 in 1 before & did prefer Pantene then. However, I use only sulfate free now. Seems much better for me. Thus the "make your own 2 in 1" approach.

    Have you tried dry shampoo? I like the Batiste brand myself. Works great. I only wash my hair once a week either way though. I have very thick hair and washing it every day would drive me bananas. I only get it wet once a week. Maybe twice if I have something to go to. I would just shampoo and use a leave in on the ends if it came down to it though.

    The dry shampoo you just spray in your roots, let it sit for a few mins and then rub it in and brush it like normal.

    I tried one of those “no poo” sets, my hair didn’t ever feel clean, and I had to really rinse it. I would go with a regular shampoo and a leave in conditioner.

    Anybody have to dye their hair on extended trips? I'll have to twice on our spring 8-week first pup venture. Did I mention first?!

    If you'll at a place with shower facilities, I would use them for the extra space. Instead of rinsing your hair in a sink, use the shower stall. It's much easier to get everything out and to clean up afterwards.

    I have a shower in my camper. I couldn't do my hair in the sink.

    Been using Head & Shoulders for 3 days now and quite happy with it. The brush doesn't go through my hair as easy as regular conditioner, but not bad enough to rip a bunch out, either.

    Here is the kind I bought. Definitely good for being able to use my own shower! So much more comfortable showering in my own space. 20181106_202354.jpg

    Sorry Orchid, that was in reply to DJFav's post about dying hair. :)

    BF uses the Head & Shoulders 2in1, but did not think his experience would be applicable to your situation. He is balding & the hair he has is only 1/8" long. :D

    Have you tried using a leave in conditioner? If the H&S is working but it's not quite enough for brushing, I'd try a leave in. You just spray it on your hair after you towel dry. I had hair down to my waist when I was a teen and it was a necessity in those days.
