get the nicest smelling cheap conditioner that i can and mix it with water in a spray bottle. and spray through. its just as good as the "proper" stuff i bought for $20.
i forgot about that trick! That works awesome as a coat conditioner!

I was at a club supermarket and got the large 40 oz. container of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner, and not only does Fella smell like coconut milk and orchids, but it is working on moisturizing his mane and tail. I am going to mix some with water as suggested and use it as a leave-in conditioner as well. I also picked up some EQyss Avocado Mist Leave-in conditioner to boasts no silicone, wax, alcohol, etc.

I was just working on this very problem two days ago. I love Show Sheen, but can't afford it anymore. I think someone recommended Infusium, so I was looking at it at the drug store. Right next to it was the Mane and Tail conditioner, and it was actually less expensive per ounce than the Infusium. So, I bought a bottle, but haven't used it yet.

Anyway, I think Mane and Tail is fairly inexpensive.

Life is hard enough on its own, please be kind.

That's a good question. Would it be ok to use "people" products? I have never done it and had never thought it. I know most medications that vets use on horses are the same as what us humans take but curious if you could do the same thing with horse mane products

i've always used human products on my horses for almost everything, cuts, shampoo, conditioners, you name i've used it.

all the human stuff works just as good if not better than the horsey products and is always cheaper.

personally i use suave for shampoo and conditioner and as leave in conditioner on his tail, my horse loves the outdoor breeze smell!

I am sticking with my answer that I gave on another question.....The thing that I have found to work best for keeping mane's and tail's conditioned is Pink's Luster....Human product. It also helps detangle. My filly has very long mane and I love it, so I try to keep it from breaking and splitting. Not the best pic in the world of it..but you get the idea.
