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!
LOL interesting...well a LOT of the horsey leave-in conditioners and products (like Show Sheen) are silicone-based as well. I've been using Pantene for probably 15 years now, and I use a flat iron, and have baby fine, long hair, and lots of it...and have had no issues ;)

And man does my horse's tail smell GREAT and feel soft! Lol

The ones we use run on average 100 degrees hotter and can cause significantly more damage if not used properly.
Well remind me never to tell my sylist to use a professional grade straightener on me! Lol Actually prob why I've never had issues...I never have to turn mine up very high because my hair is naturally pretty straight, just with a little wave I like to get rid of ;)

Haha! Some of these responses have made me LOL...literally! We use blowdryers on the horses tails when we wash them in the cooler weather before putting them back up in their tail socks.

One of our mares has literally NO FORELOCK. We have a watered down Mane & Tail conditioner bottle we use on the manes, tails, bodies, and forelocks, but her forelock refuses to grow. I am going to try that M-T-G stuff. I saw on a cowboy magic bottle of leav in conditioner something about 'how to grow mane and tail' and tried to go to the website, but it didnt work. :( The Cowboy Magic leave in condition did wonders on my mares rats nest of a tail. That stuff is amazing!

You guys have me looking at the back of my shampoo!
My shampoo has dimethicone, but also a lot of sulfur based ingredients...Hmm...The conditioner has dimethicone in it too, but I tend to use a different salon product instead.

I used the shampoo on my horse once...It was wonderful, but since people-hair-products encourage hair to become greasy (makes you use more! Good marketing!) it didn't work very well. Oh well!
