I used to love Fructis as my rinse out/ leave in, but some variants have been reformulated to include a silicone and take the palm oil out, be careful. Inecto is excellent for slip and should not be too pricey, I use piles of it and actually detangle during the co-wash tho admittedly I don't have a major issue with tangling.

For slip generally look for one of the behentrimoniums high up in the ingredients list. Some curlies find they need to wash their hair more often, really to detangle rather than to cleanse. Are you enough conditioner - really slather palmfuls on - and detangling from the bottom up?

My porous hair adores coconut oil and I find the residue helps with detangling the next wash. I use it either straight up on dry hair before a wash if I don't have styling product on, or sometimes blended into my CO-wash (Inecto conditioner) with some sugar syrup/ honey as an intensive after washing but on barely damp not wet hair. In other words make my co-wash into an intensive treatment.
