      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      For a quick freshen up this is just the thing.

      My Mother-In -Law has what my Husband and I refer to as an end of the world store, this is based in a cupboard/closet just off her bathroom. Inside is shelf upon shelf of tins, coffee, teabags, toilet rolls, shampoo, pickles, whisky etc that she is stocking up with just in case the Mayan's have got it right. She will be the only woman in existence with a ten years supply of toilet rolls and enough coffee and shampoo to ensure plenty of fresh starts in the morning.

      Last weekend she was having a bit of a clear out and was throwing bits and bobs in a bag for me to take back home, one of the toiletries that she threw in was this bottle of Wash & Go Universal 2 in 1 Shampoo & Conditioner for normal hair. Immediately my Husband seized the bottle and declared this was for him as he was sick of coming out of the shower smelling like a flower shop.

      Suitably intrigued I decided to wash my hair in it the first chance I got. The bottle is not the same as the one shown in the Dooyoo catalogue so a short description will follow.

      The bottle is Lime green with a blue flip up cap, the bottle is mostly rectangular but sort of twists as it reaches the cap, I would not class this as a manly bottle, it is unisex. A quick check tells me that the bottle can be stood on its lid to get the last bits out, so that is good.

      The front of the bottle is not packed with marketing gabble it just says "Wash & Go Universal 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner for normal hair". The back of the bottle has a scarily long list of ingredients, directions for use, manufacturer contact details and a recycling symbol, all good. Maybe this is marketed at men? There is a small amount of marketing declaring "great hair" "no fuss" "for all hair types"

      The product smells clean and soapy, a bit similar to Dove. The colour is a pearlescent light turquoise, it looks refreshing. I used a blob about the size of an old fifty pence, lathered up and then rinsed, my hair smelt fresh and felt clean, the majority of the knots were removed, I towel dried my hair, brushed it and left it to dry naturally, it looked a bit fuzzy but felt soft with no product residue. I think I would only use this if I was having a lazy day and were tying my hair back or not going out.

      The bottle is 300ml so I can see it lasting my family around four weeks with occasional use, we have a lot of 2in1's and shampoo's and conditioners on the bathroom shelf. I personally would not buy this again but I am happy to use it as it was a freebie.

      My husband thought it was great as he considered it a more masculine option when in the shower, and he said his hair felt clean and soft. A sniff of his hair the next day confirmed that Wash & Go does have a lasting scent, and when subjected to a hair ruffle his hair still felt nice and soft, what more could a lady ask for.

      If you are not as lucky as me and you don't have a handy end of the world store in your Mother-In-Laws closet and have to buy a bottle it will set you back around £1.69 from most good retailers.

      Thank you for reading.

        Wash & Go

        ==Wash & Go 2in1 Classic Care Shampoo==

        T'was a sad day when I finished a bottle of Herbal Essences Hello Hyration Shampoo. It was brilliant, washed all impurities out of my hair & left it feeling soft & smelling like a tropical island! It was actually bought from Tesco where it was £1.66 for a 400ml bottle. I did use quite a bit however, & the bottle lasted for just over a month! Looking in Morrisons, however, revealed Herbal Essences as expensive, at £3.50 for a big 400ml bottle. In Morrisons they seem to stack the shelves in some sort of way that the more you go down the shelveing the cheaper everything gets. I find Morrisons Shampoos/Conditioners are of a very high quality but they were all in so big bottles (from 300ml - 1ltr) & were priced from 40p - £1 respectively! Deciding to bypass the thought of using Shop-Branded Shampoo today I just wanted something I could use until I could next get to Hootys Wholesale (Willenhall) & buy a bottle of Herbal Essences or Head & Shoulders there as its quite cheap. Looking down the shelves next to Morrisons 2in1 Shampoo sat tall, slim bottle of Wash & Go 2in1 Shampoo. £1 for 200ml of shampoo & conditioner seems good enough to me. I went to ge the rest of my items, payed & left.

        ==About Wash & Go==

        Wash & Go was the first shampoo of its kind. Launched in 1986 people thought this was a breakthrough so they would spend less time in the shower & as the name suggests, wash hair once & go! I'm pretty sure it was first named 'Vidal Sassoon Wash & Go' as Procter & Gamble own the Vidal Sassoon name. Following this it was rebranded as plain Wash & Go ever since. Since it's launch twenty six years ago Wash & Go comes in Regular, Anti-Dandruff & For Greasy Hair. Any country you go to you can expect to find 'Wash & Go' in the supermarkets there. In Germany for example it is called 'Pert' but it still has the unmistakable lime green bottle & dark blue lid.

        ==The Product & Price==

        The bottle is not just your plain old bottle, it sort of curves upwards to the right so the lid is at an angle, rather than the bottle in the Ciao picture. The lid is of a flip top variety & is coloured dark blue whilst the bottle is green. The Wash & Go label, along with plenty of information are on thhe front & back. When you sniff the product it smells like a mixture of Head & Shoulders Classic Clean & Pantene (two more shampoo/conditioner/hair care brands from Procter & Gamble) Overall it smells very fresh & leaves a lovely smell on my hair & in the shower respectively. Prices cost around £1 from places like Tesco, ASDA, Sainsburys, Wilkinsons, Home Bargains & Poundland for a 200ml bottle. A perfect size for when you go away on Holiday! I have also seen it in a 300ml bottle which was priced at 89p in Home Bargains.

        ==Claims==

        Wash & Go 2in1 Classic Care Claims to:

        _*to give you strong & beautiful hair_

        _*to protect against combing damage_

        ==My Experiences==

        To use in the shower it is really easy. After you've wet your hair simply flip up the lid & pour Shampoo into your hand. Message it into your hair & rinse thoroughly. When you squeeze the bottle the Shampoo that comes out is very thick which is good. All you need is a little bit to make plenty of white foam. Whilst on my hair I can feel it working & when you rinse off the shampoo my hair feels soft when wet & even when dry my hair feels clean, feeling soft & smelling fresh.

        ==Summary==

        For £1 this product is really good actually! As it's 2in1 it saves time when using Shampoo followed by Conditioner & if you only need shampoo then this is good if you also want a bit of luxury when you shower! I really recommend this shampoo & give this rating four stars. Now I must try Morrisons 2in1 Shampoo/Conditioner & see if it does just as good! Copyright BrookieFan99 2012

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice if ordinary shampoo

        Intro


        I will firstly start with a bit of an apology, for as I see it a shampoo is a shampoo. It washes your hair and if you buy one with a conditioner then it is supposed to condition after the wash and rinse cycle is done. At the end of the day I just want clean hair what little there is of it, and if possible perhaps a little bit of a sheen afterwards.


        Wash and go

        At around £1.70 for the reasonably sized 300ml plastic green bottle of shampoo you are not going to be expecting anything special, but I'm left thinking why not. Most of the way expensive brands are simply overcharging because of the Brand Name. If it washes your hair, laves it clean and shiny then job done. The green packaging is average and not exactly eye catching. It has a kind of swivel top which when pressed one way allows the release of the light green thickish liquid.

        It is certainly not the thickest of shampoos, but it does have quite a fresh clean and pleasant smell associated with it. I always think wrongly of rightly that if it lathers well it's doing its job, and to this end Wash and Go has to be counted as a success, for it does indeed lather very well. I'm often left wondering though why a green liquid or in fact pretty much most coloured shampoos always give you a white lather...................how's that work then. All solutions in my GB.
        I never let my little hair get very dirty anyway since it is showered daily and according to some recent writings this isn't a good idea either, so now our Christmas hols are to be called Winter Break, we can't wash our hair too often, we can't sing Baa Baa Black sheep and all manor of other stuff we are no longer to partake off, and too boot my green shampoo gives me a white blinking lather, what's it all coming too.

        Since my hair is very short washing it doesn't take a lot of shampoo, and as I have already said a lot isn't need here since it lathers very well, it feels soft and smooth and feels also as if it's doing a good job, but then if it wasn't I wouldn't know until my hair was dry anyway. Having such a good lather I was expecting rinsing to be more difficult, but it was pretty much as normal with no problems.


        Summary

        Having not paid out a fortune and having gotten clean fresh smelling hair, I have no complaints at all. Wash and Go works well my hair felt soft as if it had indeed been conditioned, and I have a hint of a very pleasant smell coming forth from my napper.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          It works!

          I'm not that fussy when it comes to shampoo. Whilst a couple of years back, I liked to constantly indulge in 'Tresemme' shampoo, I soon went off the idea of spending around £4 per bottle of shampoo - and so now I just use whatever's in the bathroom.

          The other day, I came across this 'Wash and Go' 2-in-1 shampoo and decided to give it a go. It cost around £1 which I think is great value for money, especially when compared to said products which can cost £4 or more.

          The shampoo itself is a green colour and is quite creamy looking. Whilst its not as thick as some expensive hair shampoos, it isn't that runny either and so I would say that it is 'in the middle'.

          Obviously everyone knows how to use shampoo right? Well this shampoo is no different - simply wet hair, lather and rinse.

          The shampoo is very easy to use and I find that it lathers really well. It makes quite a rich lather and has a very fresh smell.

          The shampoo has a smell which reminds me of men's aftershave and so for some reason I feel like I have run out of my own shampoo and am 'borrowing' this 'man' shampoo! Quite strange really....I still use it though...and for the record...it isn't a man's shampoo!

          One thing which I love about this shampoo is the fact that my hair stays really 'clean' and 'fresh' even the day after. It also smells really nice - it's not often that a shampoo makes my hair smell nice - I don't know why.

          This shampoo gives my hair some 'oomph' without making it uncontrollable which is an added bonus. I have 'does-what-it-likes' hair, and yet this shampoo manages to control my hair whilst at the time giving it some volume.

          Normally, if for example I'll wash my hair tonight, it will be ok tomorrow, but come tomorrow afternoon it was start to get greasy. However, with this shampoo, it lasts grease-free for longer and smells fresh for longer! It's great!

          This product is great for me, because whilst I do like to condition my hair, I only get the opportunity to do so every other month or so as I just find it so time consuming - and most of the time, I am washing my hair because I have to 'rush off' somewhere, whether it be work or college, and this product means that I can shampoo and condition my hair all in one go which saves time.

          I think that this shampoo is excellent value for money and works really well too - better than some 'branded' shampoos, and so I would definitely recommend it!

          Thanks for reading!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Use with caution

          I used to use this shampoo years ago, in the days before I really cared about my appearance or discovered make-up and straighteners, when I just needed something cheap and non time consuming to clean my hair. When I was at school, basically. I rediscovered this shampoo and conditioner duo a couple of months ago, when I was off on holiday abroad and needed something that would save me some space in my suitcase.

          I was basically after a shampoo and conditioner that both myself and my partner could use. My other half is a bit fussy about such products, in that he hates anything that takes too long or smells too girly, and usually just washes his hair with shower gel. I bought this though as it meant I didn't have to take my usual army of shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and so on, and we could just bin the bottle at the end of the week rather than brining it back and risking leakage in the suitcase.

          The packaging hasn't changed much since I used to use it, and is still green and easy to spot on the shelf. I bought it from a discount store so it cost just over £1, quite good value considering you're getting a shampoo and conditioner in one handy bottle. The lid was a flip lid which made me nervous about suitcase spillages (and ruining our week's clothes for the sake of packing a cheap shampoo) but we didn't have any problems.

          The shampoo is light green in colour, and you have to thoroughly shake the bottle to mix up the shampoo and conditioner. It lathers really well and smells clean and fresh, almost clinical. The shampoo took a while to rinse out of my hair, as it had lathered up a fair bit, and my hair didn't feel squeaky clean after washing, but felt almost like it still had shampoo in it (even though the water ran clear).

          The main problem I had with this shampoo was that it was almost impossible to drag a comb through my rather thick hair after using it. I even used my favourite heat protection spray which usually detangles my hair, but even this didn't make a difference, and it just felt a big knotty mess.

          Once I'd managed to sort my hair into something resembling a hairstyle, and blow dried it straight, it looked ok and I didn't notice any difference in the condition of my hair. It went frizzy quite easily but I think this was more to do with the 90 degree heat on holiday rather than the product itself. It was a very convenient product which meant we weren't waiting ages for me to wash my hair before going out, and my partner had no problems with it because he has very short hair and doesn't really notice the difference in products.

          I would say this is a good convenient product but only if you don't have problem hair to begin with.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I can't recommend this product

            Many of us will recall the rather feeble launch advertising for this product, when the key selling hook seemed to be that none of us wanted to take two bottles into the shower - shampoo and conditioner. Why not try new Wash and Go, a shampoo and conditioner combined?

            I never bought the product for the first few years it was on the market, but one day, after I had complained to my wife that I was fed up using her shampoo which was invariably really odd, like henna and chocolate or particularly feminine with some yucky floral smell, she came back from town with a huge 750ml bottle of Wash and Go in a violent green bottle.

            I thanked her through gritted teeth - there's only me and her in the house - it would take me ages to get through it and I hate shampoos lying round unfinished after the novelty has worn off.

            Having tried the product, which is of a creamy blue colour, I have to say that it seems boringly ordinary. It doesn't have a good or lasting smell and my hair doesn't feel particularly clean unless I wash it twice - I don't normally need to do this as I wear my hair in a short style. I don't see any benefit from the conditioner that is supposed to be combined with the shampoo.

            Because we still have loads of other shampoos, I may take it down to the garage to use as car wash.

            Wash and Go is made by Proctor and Gamble. It's cheap but I won't be buying it again.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            great shampoo/conditioner

            whilst stopping at a friends house after a night on the town, i woke up hungover, and desparately needed to wash my hair. But to my horror, i hadnt packd my usual shampoo and it was desperate times, so i used what was on her shelf
            She didnt have much to choose from, but i eventually decided on wash and go, as it is a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner and my hair was in dire need of some conditioning

            When i first squirted it onto the palm of my hand, it was a minty green colour and quite thick, but i applied it to my hair with warm water and it lathers up really quickly. this shampoo/conditioner doesnt ffeel greasy to the touch either which is good.

            the packaging of this product is plain, but pretty. it is a lime green bottle so you could see it easily if shopping in a supermarket and it has the wash and go logo with 2 in 1 written. it has a flip topped lid which is really easy to use

            This shampoo smells brilliant, when its lathering up it emits almost tropicall smells, a blend of fresh smells that are great to start the day to.

            the conditioner in this product is very good, but i couldnt use it on a daily basis. although its a shampoo and conditioner, using every day would make my hair too conditioned as it is already slightly greasy. On dry hair this would be perfect to use every day, and it would leave your hair very healthy.

            i love this 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, it leaves my hair feeling very soft and silky, when i use it once a week. it gives my hair a boost of shine which is great

            this shampoo and conditioner makes your hair soft and shiny, and it looks fuller with more body. it leaves your hair in great condition and at only £1 per bottle, there is nothing to lose!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Highly recommended!

            When I was younger my Mum used Wash and Go on both me and my sister. It was easy, Shampoo and Conditioner in one, no more battles with two girls in the bath not wanting to be shampooed and then conditioned. When I saw this on offer at our local supermarket I thought that I would get it for when I go swimming with my little girl in order to speed the showering afterwards process up. The shampoo was on offer for just £1 for 300 ml, so just the right size for a swimming bag.

            The bottle is green and the design doesn't seem to have changed since I was a little girl, over twenty years ago! The bottle shape has changed those. This I believe was for the best as it makes it much easier to hold and get the actual shampoo out.

            The shampoo itself is green in colour and smells really nice. The smell is fresh and clean. It is not too perfumey, so it is good for men also. The consistency is nice and thick and you need hardly any to lather up.

            The shampoo left my hair feeling nice and soft and best of all clean! It made my hair smell nice and is quick and easy to use.

            Two in one = Fab. Highly Recommended!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Wash & Go Universal 2 in 1

            If you are a follower of my reviews you will know Im actually pretty picky when it comes to hair products especially shampoo and conditioner. And to be honest I have never been a fan of any 2 in 1 shampoos they dont usually work and my hair feels dry and knotty after I have used them, basically when I have the choice I will stay as far away as possible. However last week before a night out the worst thing possible happened...I realised I had no shampoo or conditioner and my hair was definately in need of a wash so I ran up the shop and grabbed the first thing I found which was this Wash & Go 2 in 1 I was planning on using it that night and then washing my hair properly the next day but I have to say this product shocked the hell out of me. It was actually good!

            According to other reviews this product has been around for years now - since the 70s - where have I been all this time and it is very widely available. You can get it from supermarkets and just ordinary shops but I suggest you get it from Poundland - why pay more? So this can be bought for as little as £1 and I reckon thats great value as a bottle lasts you ages and everyone can use it - its a unisex product so great for the whole family.

            I think this product is the exact mixture between shampoo and conditioner and by that I mean it lathers up really well like shampoo but its actually quite thick and feels like its going to be luxurious for your hair like a conditioner so I think they got the balance there just right.. Now even though this is so thick as I said it does lather up very well so you dont need to use loads everytime you use it, Id say about a 50p coins worth so thats means one bottle will last you for ages no matter how many people are using the bottle.

            The smell of this is actually worth mentioning I reckon because it is very distinctive. Now the only way I can describe the scent is that it smells clean and it really does its a very fresh scent that is kind of zingy, definately one for those early mornings when you need help to wake up. Im guessing the smell isnt to floral or feminine because they want to make this accessable to everyone and I dont think men want to be walking round with flowery hair. Also the smell lingers on your hair after you have washed this out and for ages afterwards so you hair smells squeeky clean for days.

            My hair always feels REALLY clean after I have used this and I think the smell only adds to that feeling of freshness and cleanliness. Now the main problem with 2 in 1s that I find is that they dont condition your hair at all and its damn hard to brush after you have washed it out but this isnt like that at all. You hair is super easy to brush with no knots in sight and its really easy to dry and style it afterwards I dont think Ive got a bad word to say about this product. My hair even looks super glossy and shiny after it has been styled so this is a real winner in my opinion.

            This is cheap, leaves you hair really clean, smells great, good for the whole family, leaves you hair managable and glossy what is there to dislike. Im definately going to stock up on more bottles of this when Im next in town and I strongly recommend everyone tries it out. This has totally changed my opinion of 2 in 1 products!

            Thanks For Reading

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Just not good enough

            I guess it's true what they say - you don't know what you've got til it's gone.

            I'm a nerdy guy, I have my little quirks, slight OCD about stuff...One of my traits is that I like to have the same stuff all the time. Just makes my life easy and predictable, safe, I guess.

            Historically, my "morning" shampoo has been Head and Shoulders, whilst I use Wash and Go in my gym bad. These days however, times are tight, so when my last bottle of Head and Shoulders ran out, I was seduced by an offer on Wash and Go - at a pound a bottle, it was half the price of Head and Shoulder - and how different can one shampoo be to another, right?

            Actually, the difference is quite remarkable - and not in a good way.

            Wash and go comes in a green bottle, a little different to the one pictured, with a blue lid. I guess it's smart enough, but it doesn't seem like an effective use of space - and is a little...childlike for my taste. It just a bit *too* green and *too* blue, with a couple of weird shapes in the bottle.

            The shampoo itself is a somewhat lurid almost spearmint green and smells...not good...it doesn't really smell of anything besides soap and miscellaneous chemicals.

            The greatest disappointment, however, comes in the wash itself - as my hair gets longer, I have to use a fair amount of product to keep it in check - Wash and Go really struggles with clearing it. Often I'll need to wash once to try and remove the product, then again to get a lather up - very disappointing. Worst of all, though, is the condition it leaves my hair in - it feels sticky when damp, wiry when dry and as tangly as my pretty short hair can get.

            Overall, then, I'm extremely disappointed with Wash and Go. Whilst I remain happy to use it for quick washes after runs, swimming etc, it's clearly not good enough for use as a "main shampoo".

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A great anti dandruff shampoo

            A like to keep a variety of shampoos in the shower to use to wash my hair, taking it in turn using a different one each day. I usually also have alongside regular shampoos, an anti dandruff shampoo, not because I have dandruff, but it is a preventative measure.

            Although I usually purchase either Head and Shoulders or L'Oreal anti dandruff, Tesco were running an offer for Wash and Go anti dandruff 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner for just £1 for a 300ml bottle, and since I had never tried it before, I thought I would give it a go.

            This shampoo and conditioner comes in a bright green bottle with a blue lid (a more modern version of the shampoo pictured above). As I said, this is an anti dandruff 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner and this is clear to be read across the top of the shampoo.

            On the reverse of the bottle, it states that this wash and go shampoo 'effectively fights dandruff and helps prevent it coming back with regular use'.

            I have been using this now for a couple of weeks, and have been pleased with its performance so far. The shampoo and conditioner come out of the bottle as a duck egg colour, but it lathers up really well and very quickly, without you having to use too much of it.

            I tend to use hair spray on my hair most days to keep its style, but at the cost to my hair in that it makes the texture drier, even though I tend to have naturally greasy hair. After washing my hair, I was able to run the brush through it without any bother, which I always think is a good sign, and when I had dried it, I thought it was soft and shiny.

            I know that it does not claim to make hair shiny or soft, and rather is only promoted as an anti dandruff 2 in 1, but I am definitely more likely to buy it if I thought that it was going to help the condition of my hair as well, which I felt it did.

            There is little scent to the shampoo, but then again, I wasn't look for it to have this. I am quite content to use other shampoos such as timoteii to give my hair that nice scent.

            As I said, I don't suffer from dandruff thankfully, although I have sometimes had a flaky scalp at the front of the head, but nonetheless, I like to keep an anti dandruff shampoo in the shower at all times, to keep any prospective dandruff from forming, and I would be quite happy to recommend this, especially at the price of £1. I do like head and shoulders, but I have so far found that this has done the job just as good as other anti dandruff shampoos, with the added benefit that my hair feels soft and shiny.

              A redesign wouldn't hurt, but it's a bathroom staple for me.

              Wash and Go has been around for absolutely ages (take two bottles into the shower? Not me! I Wash and Go!) and it's hardly the trendiest of haircare products, but for me it really does the job.

              I buy it at Poundland (why pay more!) but when I'm not on the high street I buy the 'shops own' version for about 65p. The real thing is best though! It comes in a chunky green square bottle. It's actually not that easy to open, I wish they'd re-design the cap, it's very sharp and I've cut my finger on it in the past. I now leave it open and just close it to so no water gets in the bottle. It looks a bit 1970s, truth be told.

              The shampoo itself has a nice, zingy, fresh smell, very clean, and is suitable for men and women in the sense that it gives no overtly male or female scent. It's a pearly, creamy blue-green colour and a small amount gives plenty of lather. It's a real time-saver for me as of course, you don't have to use a conditioner afterward. Ideal for that quick before-work morning shower.

              I have long, shoulder length brown hair and after using Wash and Go it is always squeaky clean, easy to brush when wet, and glossy and shiny when dry. Ignore all the ads for expensive shampoo, Wash and Go is a great all rounder that saves time and money (even if it's a bit lacking in style itself!)

              I really shouldnt be so judgemental when it comes to TV advertising!

              "Take two bottles in the shower....?" Ugh! to this day whenever I see this product in supermarkets or in my bathroom Im transported back to the cheesey television advert that accompanied its launch back in the 80's. It featured a nubile gym-bunny who took great delight in telling us that she was above such faffing when it came to looking after her hair and that she only needed to slap this stuff on and not only would it clean her hair but also condition it too.

              Jingles and advertisment slogans seem to inbed themselves in my head and fair-do's to Procter & Gamble the manufacturers of this shampoo/conditioner their advertising did what they intended it to do. However it didnt in my case because for years and years I resisted buying this product because it annoyed me so much (Similar to "I cant believe its not butter - see my other review) and anyway being a bloke I didnt really care about conditioning my hair, so long as its clean im happy.

              Recently though, Mrs R picked up a bottle of this stuff, and with it being the only shampoo we had in our bathroom I gave it a try, the bottle is a deeper green than that shown in DooYoos pic but the label is the same. You are informed on the sticker that it is a Universal shampoo & conditioner and is suitable for normal hair.

              Prejudice aside I have to say the product did actually make my hair feel clean and soft, Mrs R loves this stuff now and is definitely converted and this will be continued to be used in our household. The shampoo/conditioner has a thick gloopy consistency and is aqua blue in colour, it is lightly fragrenced and smells "clean". Usage isntructions really couldnt be easier, apply to wet hair, massage in and wash out and that it, you really can just "Wash and Go!" (ugh! again)

              I cant fault the product at all, it does what it says it will do and is competitively priced at round about £1.70 per bottle, ours cost only £1.00 from Asda not so long ago so may be on permanent offer with them?

              A begrudging 5/5 from me, I just wish I could get the slogan out of my head!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A nice enough shampoo to use, but don't put too much faith in the conditioning aspect.

              As you can probably see from my profile photograph, I don't have much patience with styling my hair. While this was a problem in my youth, now I'm older I tend to go for the 'old ladies bowl cut' which requires very little in the way of styling and I can simply drag a comb through my hair most days.

              Of course, it still needs washing and as usual I am always looking for products that will cut down even further the amount of time I need to spend on my hair. I only bought Wash & Go because after remembering I needed shampoo I realised I had very little money with me and this was on special offer for £1.29, after seeing it was a 2-in-1 product I thought this seemed a very reasonable price so I grabbed a bottle.

              Please note, the bottle I have here is completely different to the one you see above. It's more curvy and pleasing to the eye with a lid you actually have to pull off rather than just flip up, which I personally prefer for some reason.

              I have now used Wash & Go three times and am pleased with it, although personally I don't think it's anything special and would be loathe to pay more for it than I did. It has a green pearly appearance and is a thick creamy shampoo, it lathers up beautifully although I did find that I needed to wet my hair rather more than usual to allow it to lather as much as I like it to.

              I find it takes a lot of rinsing to remove all the shampoo residue from my hair. Presumably it's the conditioner that makes it adhere so strongly to my hair, but I estimate it took at least an extra minute to rinse all the shampoo out which isn't a problem now I have a walk in shower but if I were still having to rinse my hair whilst bending over the bath I would have been most annoyed - and stiff!

              After rinsing and towel drying my hair I immediately realised that the conditioning aspect of Wash & Go isn't terribly good. While my hair felt and looked squeaky clean, it wasn't as soft as if I'd used a separate conditioner and pulling the comb through I was aware that there were still plenty of lugs which indicates to me that the conditioner isn't terribly good in this product.

              Because my hair is quite short this isn't really a problem but if you have longer or thicker hair than me then I don't think this product would be much use for you. The conditioner works only to add a little smoothness to my hair and although the shampoo is very good indeed I don't think Wash & Go is really worth the inflated price tag. Admittedly I paid only £1.29 for my bottle but I believe the usual price is around £2.29, and that is simply too much for a decent shampoo yet mediocre conditioner in my opinion.

              You're far better to go to Poundland and pick up a separate shampoo and conditioner, and still save yourself 29p!

                not for me this one

                This looks fab on the advert, always some glam woman hair shining not a tat in sight. Who are the kidding? I have used it until the bottle ran out, not a shine in sight, I always ended up using an extra conditioner or it was impossible to brush my hair, the product says it is suitable for dyed hair, maybe it is for some hair but a no for mine. So all in all I would say this is more of a shampoo than a two in one, It would be interesting to see if the models in the advert had even used the product, I really dont think their hair had been close to this so called two in one product, the one and only positive thing I can say about wash and go 2in1 is that it does smell quite nice, I will be going back to shampoo and conditioner, not mixed up in the same bottle.
