Growing her Forelock back

When I got Annalie her Forelock looked like this:

Now it looks like this:


I think she is pulling it out in thorn bushes or on tree branches or something. How do I get it to grow back? How long is it going to take?

You keep the mane braided and apply it to the roots once a week. Wear gloves though because it's really greasy!

And if that doesn't work, you can always try leave-in conditioner (Pantene Pro-V conditioner that I diluted in a spray bottle with water always works!)...MTG wasn't really doing anything to my mare's (rather pitiful) quarter horse forelock ;) But the Pantene has sure been doing the trick! Hey, works for MY hair, so why wouldn't it help hers? Lol

Make sure to braid the forelock loosely. Scotch ripped out his forelock late last year after I left a too-tight braid in overnight. Lesson learned! :P

I am going through the same ordeal! I have finally started to use the leave in conditioner, but I can't say if it's working yet. I do know his mane and tail are really soft now! LOL

I haven't tried to braid his forelock or mane. My main fear with that is, he will rub on something and pull the whole thing out instead of just a few hairs. Is my fear something I shouldn't be fearing? Should I go ahead and braid it loosely?

Just be careful using heat on your hair :) Pantene is a primarily silicone based product and the more you use it, the more the silicone builds up under cuticle of your hair. I have literally seen a stylist go to flat iron a clients hair and the hair melted right off. This lady had been using only Pantene products for over 3 years and the when the high heat from the stylist's flat iron hit it, the silicone melted. I doubt you'll be flat ironing your horses forelock so it was more an FYI for yourself LOL!

erm....(in a very quiet voice) I used to regularly use hair straighteners on my pony's mane as for the show ring a wavy mane was frowned on and he had a wavy mane
