Alternating rinse outs

I am dearly, dearly in love with AOHR. I had used it when I was still using shampoo, and didn't love it, but wish co-washing it's been doing great things. Unfortunately, after 2 or 3 uses as a rinse out in a row, my hair gets way too soft and a little greasy, since it's so strong.

I've been looking for a rinse out that I can use every other day or 2 of every 3 days in rotation with AOHR. I'm protein sensitive, but I'm beginning to think low protein might not be such a bad thing. Can't be too moisturizing or thick, since that's the problem I'm having with AOHR, but not too thin and runny, either.

Any ideas? I was looking into Tigi Moisture Maniac, Elucence, or maybe Nature's Gate.

    I had the same issue with AOHR last winter. I could only use it twice a week--and nothing else was moisturizing enough. During the summer I couldn't use it at all. Beginning of August, I started to use KBB hair milk as my rinse out. I usually rotate products, but I use this everyday. It's great.
