Favorite shampoo and conditioner?

Hi everybody,
Just wondering what your favorite shampoo and conditioner for your horses are? I have a mare with a huge mane and it is always getting dirty and tangled. Looking for something to help with that!

Suave. If it's good enough for me, it's good enough for my horses!

Whatever is the cheapest at the feedstore, never seen any difference in the horse's coat either. I won some more pricier Rio Vista, worked the same.

I go to a beauty supply store and buy the gallon sized shampoos and conditioners. I usually look for sales and get the ones that are under $5/gal. They smell nice too!

I second the Suave shampoo and conditioner. It's cheap, does the job, and plus you can make your horse smell like green apples or coconut! My grocery store usually has a buy any two for $5, so I can get shampoo and conditioner together.

I use whatever is cheapest per ounce at the $1 store. They even carry something that's labeled "Horse Shampoo" but I've only bought that one time. I get all my own hygiene supplies there too, so we usually share.

Buy any two for $5.00?! That's expensive! I get the family sized Suave shampoos and conditioners for $1.50 each at Wally World.

I'm gonna be the odd person out here. I like Eqyss Micro Tek shampoo & conditioner for the first bath of the year or if I have a rain rot problem. After that I like Healing Tree Products, Private Reserve Tea Tree Shampoo and if I can't find that then I like Vetrolin Bath shampoo.

I go to Sally's Beauty Supply and get a gallon of Kolestral conditioner for their "hot oil" treatments.

I get whatever is cheapest! I love quicksilver though for mares with white tails.
