    I love EQyss.
    I got a sample pack when I rescued Bastian and used it on him when it was warm enough for a quick bath. He smelled like death and decay before and after it was all spring flowers for weeks. (proper care of his leg also helped). I has a plethora of their products now, even for my old dog with skin allergies. They has a great shampoo and conditioner that has helped him immensely.

    For the girls, their owner likes to use Mane and Tail, but Im not thrilled with it. They are dirty filthy paint mares and I have a wee cabinet of Goop, Bluing, and a HUGE bottle of the Eqyss detangler gel, as well as various cream/spray Sunscreens. One mare burns so quickly, I really want to buy her a turn out sheet. Cause they ride her when she is burned across the shoulders and are shocked when she doesn't want to listen.

    Santa Fe detangler is fabulous! I haven't been able to find it at any stores near here so I don't know if they discontinued it or what. I now use Vetrolin detangler and it's alright but not as good as the Santa Fe. Cowboy Magic is also pretty good. :)

    Is there silicone in these products that helps with detangling? I've used WD 40 by spraying it into the hair and smooshing it around with wet hands, leaving it alone for a few minutes then start to work.

    Santa Fe instant detangler does have silicones. So does Cowboy magic detangler and I am sure most detanglers do have some silicones in them. Hmm, I've never tried WD 40, that might be something to try out on my Haflinger's crazy thick tail

    I make my own leave in conditioner and detangle works great, no silicone, no dry, itchy tails. My recipe isn't set but it based off part good conditioner (human) that is no fragances, and water. I made a mistake of using cowboy magic detangle once and she ended up breaking off the ends of her tail they were so brittle.

    There's no silicones in Ecolicious Equestrian Products - Natural Horse Grooming Products - Home products at all. No laurel sulphates or preservatives, either. Completely sourced and made in North America, too.

    If you're using anything human-based in your homemade products, the ingredients are just as bad. A truly natural product has no preservatives and shelf life of only a year, if that's what you're truly looking for.

    Also, be warned that once you add water to any normal product, you're adding live cultures and bacterias that grow and multiply rapidly within 24 hours. Be sure to discard after this time frame or if it smells funky.

    Silicones are a complete fallacy. We've gotten used to the 'luxurious' feel of using the product, but in fact it dries out hair and causes breakage.

    A friend of mine who has used it said it was fabulous, though I haven't had a chance to try it myself. I borrowed a little of the Smeg-U-Later (a sheath cleaner) from a friend before ordering some for myself- if the rest of the products work as well as that stuff did I'll bet it's awesome!

    Absorbine Moisturizing Detangler, miracle in a bottle for after washing a tail that is tangled. No breakage, instant detangling, smells great too.
