I love the Cowboy Magic detangler, but I found it works best if you soak the mane or tail then let it dry for like 10 ish mins then brush it all out.

Whatever you use, patience is the key. Start at the bottom and do it with your fingers. Little by little.. it's worth it!

Avoid anything with silicone in it on manes and tails - it might work well and look good but it goes sticky as it builds up a residue and the only way to deal with it then is to use a stripping product to get rid of it or keep using more
Any light oil will help - baby oil or rosewater but I find just a regular washing with some wet brushing in between to keep it clean works once you've spent the time combing out all the tangles
My ID mare has ringlets in her tail but they comb out really easily since I stopped using all the silicone based stuff
