Using a richer conditioner to co wash...

Does anyone do this? I was thinking, since I saw a thread that GF sleek n shine conditioner is now cone free that I might try usuing that as my co wash. It's thicker than suave or vo5 and maybe it would provide me with even more moisture since my hair is so dry anyway. I'd still use the GVPCB as my rinse out, but maybe I could use the sleek n shine for a leave in too since it's CG now. Is there any flaw in this logic? Something I'm not thinking about maybe or would this possibly work?

I don't know, does anyone use a thicker, richer conditioner for their co wash? If so, how is/was it working for you?
by richer you mean more oil?
I think it could work along as the conditioner has enough emulsifier to rinse out its own oil plus your own scalp oil, so that you can still get a net effect of removing oil-soluble stuff from your hair. I have done this before with something like EO Chamomile & Honey conditioner.

Something really rich like aubrey organics white camellia conditioner, for example, would probably not work - it doesn't have enough emulsifier to rinse itself out completely, much less any products or scalp oil that are already in the hair.

When I say richer, I don't necessarily mean more oil (I don't think) just something thicker than the usual suspects, something that might be more moisturizing. I started with the VO5 kiwi lime and it was awful, dried my hair out terribly. The suave coconut is working much better, but I was thinking maybe something thicker/more moisturizing than that might be even better. Maybe "richer" isn't the word I'm looking for but can't think of a better way to describe it.

But you're right, I guess I can't go too rich with it or it won't rinse out. Eww... that would not produce a good hair day!
