I prefer to use more pricey conditioners as leave-ins, not as co-washes.
I use co-washes meant for the purpose more than I use conditioners to wash my hair. I have 2 different L'Oreal co-washes, As I Am co-wash (cheaper per oz than L'Oreal!!), and Ouidad co-wash, and I have gotten similar results with each one (good ones).
But I really think that, unless a cleanser is really stripping, my LI and styler have a bigger impact on how my hair looks and feels than what cleanser or even what DT I use (I cleanse and DT - with a DT or heavy conditioner - at night).
