My Thoughts: 
My first time using the product I did not like it. I mainly focused on the word Cowash & went off with my prior thoughts on what a Cowash does. Clean your hair but provides MOISTURE to the hair. After my first use I left it in my stash, but recently I have been using if a few more times. After reading the directions and paying attention to the claims. 

This cleansing conditioner is more cleansing then it is conditioning. The product is a gentle cleansers in comparison to a shampoo but is not conditioning as a conditioner. My hair does feel nicely cleansed it does not feel completely stripped but it does not feel moisturized. This product has zero slip which did not make detangling a breeze as it claims. It did not provide my hair with moisture or maintain moisture. After using this I have to always follow up with a conditioner to bring back the moisture that was lost. I would not detangled with this product in my hair. Rinse it out and follow up with a conditioner and it be a lot better. But doesn't that beat the purpose of what a Cowash product is for? It's suppose to be basically a all in one ? No ? Yeah?

The product has a thin consistency that I feel is a pro and con. What I do like about it is that it is easier to apply too my roots directly and can easily be rubbed in. What I dislike about it is it's a bit runny and sometimes product runs off my hand. I also dislike the packaging. I feel if the consistency is thick then it belongs in a tub but this product is thin/runny and can easily fall out if dropped, especially in the shower.

Would I Repurchase ? 
Eh.. Not really I am pretty sure that there can be a better cleansing conditioner. I want it to give me BOTH gentle cleaning with MOISTURE! I also believe it was the coconut that did not work well with my hair. I was suck into the hype though !
