Red face Frizzy, Poofy, Ugly Forelock!!

My sweet little mini mare has the WORST forelock. It's frizzy and poofy and big! It was like this when I got her. I've tried every product on the market, training it, etc I don't know what to do anymore aside from cutting the darn thing off! I don't want my mare to have 80's rocker chic hair

Help! Haha! Here's a picture for good measure........

Awww...it's cute! I'd leave it be and let it grow out.
P.S. Try looking at my mare in the album labeled, Ms. Goody Two Shoes...when I bought her her mane was roached completely off....now look at it.

Could you condition it with a product especially made to remove frizzies, then braid it and leave the braid in?

Oh my....lol, definitely not what I expected to see:p I wonder if something happened to it to make it that way? Her tail and mane don't seem like that at all. Hmm, personally I would condition the crap out of it,lol

No, you're right. She has a beautiful tail her mane was pretty dried out but I cut it, it's starting to grow out normal. I've conditioned, and conditioned, and conditioned her forelock. I've had product on it and did the braids....nothin.

She's cute! I agree with the other posters -- conditioner is your answer. I like Best Shot Ultra Plenish, so easy to rinse out and removes dead hair from the body, too. Then I'd follow with the Ultra Vitalizing Mist for combing it, and band it while still wet (after using the Mist to comb it out) at the base and then the tip, but no braids so it doesn't get wavier. The products will nourish it to grow in a healthy way, and the banding will train it. Good Luck!

I started moisturizing her forelock with coconut oil today, a friend that is a hairdresser told me it does wonders for people that have dry, damaged hair so why wouldn't it work on a horse! She suggested leaving it in and braiding it. If that doesn't work I'm just going to roach it and let it grow out I think...

Don't use shampoo on it, just wet it- go to a pharmacy, get hair placenta (ethnic section) coconut oil, & bio-silk.
After you rinse it/get it wet put the hair placenta on it (or even mix eggs, cooking oil, & mayonnaise) let it sit for like an hour. Rinse it out. Put the coconut oil & bio-silk in it. Braid (not too tight because that causes hair to break) & leave it in for a week.
Take it out- rinse, do it over. After two week (& doing it twice) you should see marked improvement.

Its deffinetly cute tho, by the way. I giggled. She can be my therapy horse when I'm angry haha! :)
