Shampoo, Conditioner, styling agents—that’s the usual drill when it comes to maintaining my locks. That is until I came across Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner ($28). This is a conditioner that is meant to replace shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in. It has a creamy texture that looks like your typical conditioner, but it also has cleansing properties so you can scrub your scalp with it. The formula is free of harsh chemicals and sulfates like sodium lauryl sulfate.

Doctors had to amputate both arms and legs because her limbs weren’t receiving enough oxygen.
