I think my product is the same as yours, Iroc. The directions on the back say to use it as a prewash. In fact, the product is labeled as a "Restorative Pre-Cleansing Treatment" and it's way too heavy to not rinse out. I could never put it in my hair as a styling aid. Too heavy and for me the smell is too cloying.
Jeep, does yours come in a pot? I saw pots of DT on eBay too, I was tempted because I could use those the same way you do.
Interestingly enough, I just now found this on Amazon as well as on Ebay, so there are lots of options to buy it for under $20.
