I just bought this to use as a co-wash in the drier, colder months. I usually use the tropical coconut, which works great, but not very moisturizing at all. I need unheard amounts of moisture in the winter. It smells great. Smell is pretty important to me, since my husband loves it when my hair smells good. The cleansing was good, as far as I can tell right now. With co-washing, I like to use something for at least a month to really judge the cleansing power, since some conditioners can start out great, but build up over time. it is more moisturizing than the Tropical Coconut. Still pretty light, and not moisturizing enough for me personally to use as a rinse out. Possibly would make a good leave in, I haven't tried it that way yet.
