Wink Borrow your horses hair spray?

Ok, fess up. How many of you use your horse products on yourself?
I've heard Coconut oil works great on horse mane and tails, have any of you tried it on your own hair?
I use Hoof Alive on my own nails pretty regular. The saddle conditioner I use (Skidmores) is one of the best hand creams for really dry skin too.
What works good and what was a big mistake?

I have tried coconut oil. It made my hair very very very oily and greasy. I suppose it's also because my hair is naturally more greasy. Me and my friend just decided to try it the one day out of curiosity. LOL. Wasn't a good idea. Everyone at school though my hair was constantly wet. What makes that worse is my hair is red.....explains alot hey? LOL

I've used my horses fly spray when the gnats get really bad. A metal shedding blade gets hair off car seats and fleece sweaters.

I use Sporty Haft Spray for everything! I use it for my boots/saddle, if my horse's braids have fly aways and I use it to stick my top hat on in really windy weather. It's great stuff because it's really sticky and doesn't leave a residue after you wash it off.

I'm also a fan of the Mane and Tail products.

I use my horses mane brush all the time, and the fly spray. At one horse show I used my horses mouse once as well.
