Anyone have any have any luck with color enhancing shampoos like Quic Color? I have a sun bleached chestnut I'd like a little darker for a clinic next week.

I've used Quic Silver and... eh. It gets the mane/tail clean and shiny but it doesn't make it any more white than other shampoos. I'll still use it but unless the shampoo has dye in it it can't really do much.

There are some amazing supplements for darkening coats and protecting them from the sun but you have to wait for the new coat to grow in before you can see the results. Any of the Cheval products (black as knight, gold as sun, etc) I recommend 110%

I actually love Quik Silver! But I scrub my horse with suave first, and then leave the quic silver on for a while. Makes my horse's socks white! On Dover's website though, the quic silver got lots of great reviews, the quik black got TERRIBLE reviews so I was wondering.

Yeah, I've heard the supplements are good. But I'm not interested in doing a long term thing, just for an event in a few weeks. :) Also some of those supplements test positive at shows (contain paprika).

I've used tons of shampoos trying to help my sun-bleached black horse not look as gross. The only one that I saw a result with was hilton herb color enhancing shampoo. It's available at smartpak equine and they have one for chestnuts.

I made a nice accidental purple t-shirt, but it didn't make any chance on my horse. Mine went into the trash. I have much better results with feed throughs.

The Black as Knight worked great for keeping my dark bay dark. I'm guessing their golden variety works well too.

We did use the very expensive Cheval henna shampoo on my daughter's bleached out black horse before a show. The results were not as fabulous as we would have hoped for but it was certainly an improvement. You could see places where we did not leave the shampoo on evenly so be careful about that.

Quic Black works awesome for my boy. And just a secret, it also works awesome on white markings. Be careful though. Rinse it off almost immediately or you will have blue socks. My trainer told me that trick and I was skeptical but his socks were blinding.

I've never used the red base shampoos for chestnuts/palominos though...er, never had a chestnut or palomino. All mine have been darkies, ha. I hear it turns white markings pink though if you're not careful! But I have seen some people's before and after pics that the difference was INSANE.
