My new favorite Cowash!!!!!/ product review

So as some of you may already know by following my blog, I LOVE to co wash my hair. Co- washing is the use of conditioner to cleanse the hair and scalp. Many African American women, or women of color with curly hair choose to co wash instead of using regular shampoo. Most shampoos contain harsh sulphates and ingredients that can strip the hair of its natural oils and shine. For my coily 4a/4b hair, co washing works wonders all year around, in every season.  Co washing also works great for weave hair, which I install time to time for protective styling. Co washing weave hair keeps the hair shiny, bouncy and tames fly- always and keeps tangles at bay. 
If you follow my blog, you know I have posted a few times about a co wash that I loved in particular by As I Am, called coconut co wash! I love, love, lovr this co wash because of the smell, the slip it gives me when detangling in the shower, and the moisture it gives my hair after rinsing it out. Well, I kinda cheated on my coconut co wash , lol * sad face* and decided to give another co wash cleanser a try. I've been eyeing this particular product for a long time, and have been very reluctant to try it. 
I picked up the Pantene "truly naturals" co wash from Walmart. It's not in the black hair care aisle, which surprised me, it's in the aisle with all the other hair care products for Caucasians and other ethnicities. 
To make a long story short, I co washed my hair yesterday, because it was in need of moisture and had been in a bun all weekend. I followed my normal routine, parted my hair into 4 sections and went to work. The smell is amazing, has a fresh fruity smell, similar to other Pantene products. When I put this on my hair, it glided right through. It felt moisturized, it was creamy, and I really felt like it was cleansing my hair and scalp. Detangling was a breeze, the comb glided right through my hair!  I'm sorry to say but this product may be replacing my beloved As I am coconut co wash. You get 22.8 oz for 5$ which is AMAZING for someone who co washes once a week! I give this product a 5/5 for the price, and because it gets the job done, quite well I might add! This can be purchased at your local Walmart, target, CVS and Walgreens.  Please comment, leave suggestions and let me know if you guys have tried this! Thank you!
