Worming is essential but mine just like to "scratch".
I have been putting MTG on their mane & tails,this makes them grow. I bathe them really good and then saturate the tail & manes with the MTG,usually just at the base in the hair line,then it will distru=ibute itself over a few days. It doesn't smell to good,smells like ham grease to me......lol
But it has been working really good. You leave this in and when you brush their mane & tails use a bristle brush or a brush with nylon bristles,NO COMBS!!! Start at the end not the top and work your way up,if you run into a mat or dread lock use a detangler to get it apart. This keeps you from breaking the hair.I will have some before & after pictures of them in a few weeks to show the difference.
