Remember to not use silicone based products for the best long term health. Use them if needed to detangle then i use coconut oil and run my fingers through over and over. Some oils promote bleaching, silicone will dry it out worse. After bathing while wet we use argon on the tail and coconut on the mane.

I like cowboy magic for a detangler. I also go to the ethnic hair care section of the drug store and they have spray type leave in conditioner. I get the cheap one and it works wonders!

The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being...If you never love a horse, you will never understand.

Kids detanglers generally leave a film. I wouldn't use it.

I like vetrolin if I am not going to follow with a full shampooing in the next 24 hours. If I am going go shampoo "soon", then coconut oil is wonderful. Dirt doesn't "stick" to silicon based detanglers like vetrolin, showsheen, what not, and a little application keep its "comb-able" for several days - or longer.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Yes its perfectly safe. I was a groom in california before I joined the military and me and all of the other groomers used human detanglers. I love infusium 23 mixed with some water in a spray bottle. Also if your in a pinch and don't have any money to spend just take a small squirt of your own conditioner and fill the rest of the spray bottle with water. It really helps to get the tangles out. Just make sure you don't put too much conditioner in there you want soft and manageable not greasy.
