Oh. HAHA! I don't show so I had no idea! Well in that case, don't use the Pantene and the flat iron on your pony hehe

Dang, Amarea. I had never heard of that. I used to use Pantene all the time but now I use Garnier Fructis. Heard any horror stories about that?

Sorry to go off topic LOL.

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!
Thats hilarious in a sad way.

This is also why you should be changing shampoos on a regular basis.

I have nothing useful to contribute to this thread other then the sentance above. Sorry. Lol

LOL I went to school for Cosmetology so we seen a LOT of weird things!

Garnier I haven't heard anything about. Pantene was weird. We could tell every person who used Pantene because that silicone sticks to the hair so much that when we washed it, we could smell the Pantene.

Look on the back of your bottles. The name or names you should look for are Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, and Phenyl Trimethicone, which are common silicone-based ingredients in hair care products. If they have any of these, you should be using a sulfate based clarifying shampoo at LEAST once a week to strip out some of the build up.

Personally I use Malibu Well Water Treatment shampoo and LOVE the results I get with it. It doesn't have Sulfates or Silicone in it at all and it's $13 for a 1 liter jug at the supply house. I live in the middle of BFE and have very hard water and this stuff has kept my hair from getting that orange tinge to it. I also have to use about 1/3 of this compared to what I was having to use of the store brand stuff.

BTW just a an aside. Don't use GHD hair straighteners on pony's manes. They arre to hot and you end up with a burnt smelly mess! (i have made that mistake)
    11-24-2010, 03:38 PM
GHD is a professional grade flat iron so they are made to get significantly hotter than a little $20 cheapie from Wal-Mart. That's part of why this lady's hair melted off. She had been using an El Cheapo from Wally World which didn't get hot enough to really do anything. The ones we use run on average 100 degrees hotter and can cause significantly more damage if not used properly.

Huh, learn something new every day. I don't have to worry about the whole melting thing since I don't style my hair (I don't even blow-dry it), but that is good information to have.

LOL sorry... I tend to go off on tangents about hair. I learned some really off the wall things while I was in school for it LOL. I may not know horses that well yet but at least I'm knowledgeable about something!

The flat edge of a el cheepo straightner is the best for sealing the glue on equine hair extensions!
