Can this be used as a co-wash?
I am trying to cut out shampoo (I have super dry, coarse, thick hair that can go 8-10 days w/o a clarifying wash) and have tried Wen but was underwhelmed (my hair ended up my dry than in the beginning). I am looking for a conditioner that could act as a co-wash (as it seems many conditioners can), and as this seems to be free of most of the 'naughty' ingredients I am hoping to avoid to keep my hair healthy in the long run, I am wondering if it's a possibility. Anyone have any experience with this? By the way, "weighing down hair" is a plus to me... that's how dry my hair is!

I would say no. I have dry hair as well, but not as dray as you describe yours. This conditioner definitely does not have any cleaning qualities. It is purely a moisturizer. But you might try washing your hair with just water. You could even use distilled water and then use the conditioner. I have a friend with very dry hair who does this and her hair looks clean and lovely. She only uses plain water to wash her hair. You might also try the shampoo that goes with this conditioner- the CAVIAR shampoo and use it once every 2 weeks or so to see how that works for you.

I've used and loved this conditioner as a cowash. It works great. It is light, a detangler and leaves hair soft.
