Anyone tried these?

You guys know I love my SM shampoo, but it's getting to the point where it's a little too pricey for me to buy regularly, so I'm looking for a more low-cost alternative.

I've tried a couple, but nothing has taken my fancy. The latest one I've found that looks like my cup of tea is:
Palmer's Olive Oil Formula Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner

Just wondering, before I buy it, if any of you guys have any experience with this?

    I have never tried it, but am familiar with their cocoa butter products for skin.

    I found this ingredient list on drugstore.com:
    Water (Aqua), Cetyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Isopropyl Palmitate, Polyquaternium 7, Behentrimonium Chloride, Olea Europea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Laureth 4, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Chamomilla Recutita (Matracaria) Flower/Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Equisetum Arvense Extract, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Hyssopus Officinalis Extract, Urtica Dioica (Nettle) Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Panthenol, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Myristyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Propylene Glycol, Blue 1 (CI 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 19140), Red 4 (CI 14700), Caprylyl Glycol, Benzyl Salicylate, Linalool

    The main cause for concern I see is the drying isopropyls... there are emollient alcohols too, so it *might* balance out. And the coco betaine should be good enough to keep the polyquat from building up. As long as you're not protein sensitive I think it could be worth a try.

    geekrockgirl85 :) I think it's worth a try, especially since it's only a fiver or so
