Depends on the dye...semi-permanent color coats the hair and then they normally include a serious conditioner with the package, my hair was actually always SUPER soft and silky after one of those treatments, and so was my horse's tail!

But stay away from the permanent stuff, THAT stuff is stronger and CAN and will damage the hair. And of course if you're attempting to go lighter there has to be bleach involved which ALWAYS damages the hair as well.

You can also use Henna hair dye, it's 100% organic, all natural, and chemical free. It's a bit like mud. :)

What do you base this on? All our cosmetic products have to go through rigorous testing before they can be sold to us, and horses are very different creatures to humans. I'm sure the testing that confirms the safety of a product for humans doesn't cover equines.

Genuine question.

I disagree with Shropshirerosie

Almost all cosmetic products are tested on animals. And second, hair (no matter what animal) is all made out of the same substance, a protein called Keratin. It would have the same effects on a horse as a human as long as the horse isn't allergic to the product.

But I do agree that using all-natural products would be best. I don't suggest using any bleach-based dyes.

That's a pretty good price on the extensions! I think I might get some for my new mare!

If anyone wants to dye a mane or tail fun colors and know it's safe and will wash out after a while check out Wholesale Pet Supplies, Dog Grooming | PetEdge.com This is where I get dye for dogs (I'm a groomer and yes people want their dogs dyed). It's veg based and safe. It washes or fades out after a few weeks to a month but it's pretty fun. I've used it on my paint mini and my dogs.

Sorry I had to laugh here. There is NOTHING on this planet that is "chemical free", since EVERYTHING is made of chemicals.
