So I need moisture to prevent tangles, but not a ton of it, but still something to remove the staining and deep clean to his skin. Because in summer, lots o' bugs love making a rest stop of his ridiculously long coat. Coat complication issues, usually a multi-step process. Another reason I don't bathe him often.
I've never seen The Stuff weigh down any kind of coat, personally. It's very... mmm... lightweight and slick feeling. Every dog that comes through grooming gets hit with it. But, you do know his coat best.
