Thanks for the tip about the Tresemme as a leave in! I hadn't been using it much because it takes a bit of work to get it through my thick hair as a cowash and the Suave Naturals is much runnier so I use it instead. As a leave in though, Tresemme is my new favorite! KCKT didn't do as good of a job as it does! I use my KCKT on my kids as a leave in lol, it doesn't work for me but it makes their hair softer and easier to comb.
