Does anyone use their horse shampoo for their own hair?

I do not do this but my 18 year old cousin does. I was shocked and she's like, "What? It's more common than you think." Is that true? Does anyone else do this? Not that I'm going to, I'm just wondering.

Well, Mane n' Tail is made for people, horses, and dogs. I've used it on myself and my horse.

I have been tempted to try my mare's Emerald Black shampoo, haha. I dye my dark brown hair black, and for some reason it keeps turning red (which is not even my natural color!). It keeps her from turning red, so maybe it'll do the same for me.

I don't see why you couldn't do it. It might not give you the desired results, just like if you were to use Pantene Perfect Curls on your straight hair, but I doubt it'd harm anything. It's not like they put some special ingredient in it that's safe for horses but not for humans. If it's safe for their skin, it should be safe for ours - assuming you're not allergic to it.

I've used my horses white n bright shampoo on myself (since I'm blonde) and it made my hair really shiny and lighter looking. But it's a little expensive so I just keep it for my horse.

I've washed my hair with worse things than horse shampoo but yes, I have used it before and it did the job.

I have used several of the dog grooming products I used as a dog groomer; they have fewer harsh chemicals, and I react less to them...

I have used some horse products too, but not as much as the dog ones, seeing as I had more acces to them; I also use the dog products on my horses and goats, with fabulous results.

I've used Cowboy Magic on my hair. I really liked it lol. But it was kinda expensive so my horse gets it. =)

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
