Black Manes & Tails- Sunbleached- Ideas?
Today was a nice day here in Texas, almost 80 degrees. On the way home from getting hay I stopped at the tack store to pick up dewormer and of course I have to get a goodie, I can't leave with just dewormer!
I have stuff going on the next couple of weeks and Stilts will out in public and I was going to clean him up and give him a bath. I seen some shampoo QUICK BLACK, said it was good for black horses and dark bays to get the red tones out of their manes, tails and coat. I thought this would be perfect because the ends of his mane and tail are slightly bleached from the sun, they look red rather than black. And we have a black horse to use it on as well.
So I followed the directions, cleaned his mane and tail to get the dirt out, apply the Quick Black, rub into hair, leave for 10 minutes, rinse.
I was so disappointed!
His hair looks the same and I have blue smurf hands from this dark blue shampoo! LOL...I am such a dork, I am not sure why I thought it was supposed to change hair color but not absorb into my skin...
I used to show market cattle way back in FFA, I always had black steers and I can't remember the name of the stuff we used to spray on them, if it was the color shalack for making their coats stand on end, or if was purely to blacken their coats, does any one know?
Is there a better way to use the shampoo I bought? Or a another way to get rid of the sun bleached look?
