Thank you so much CCH! (not quoting because of how long the page is lol)

What brands do you find that you typically use (especially for the purple shampoo and the conditioner)? Have you used coconut oil, and if so what was your experience with it? (I only ask because I've heard some very good things about it for darker tails, but I know that the washing for white tails - especially the whitening shampoos - can be harsher than washing for dark tails where you only really need a regular people shampoo)

For purple shampoo, 90% of the time. I use Farnam white & brite or Fleet farm's generic brand. I like silverado silver, but cost/oz means I don't use it much. I don't use quick silver because I find it too runny and too expensive per ounce.

For regular shampoo I use world champion (a lot), infusium 23 moisturizing, hydrosurge (discontinued), ventrolin, Oster, or anything else that smells nice and is either a moisturizing type or a very clean rinsing. I don't use any shampoos that smell oily or waxy like mane & tail, pantene or other generic type shampoos.

For conditioner, I love world champion and use it 90% of the time. I will also use infusium, hydrosurge, etc.

I use eZall or EQ Solutions frequently, but have not tried their loquid spray in coat conditioner/ detanglers. I like to use the foamers for quick wash and a strong mix (30-50% diluted with water) for scrubbing bodies.

I tried the Topline Equine brand recently, it worked ok, but smelled like an old lady wearing bug spray & pine sol perfume. I would like to try the Gallop line, but haven't yet. I also dislike cowboy magic's shampoo/ conditioner. I found their shine spray to be greasy and attract dust, but like their gel detangler and green spot remover. "Wow" stain remover doesn't work at all for me. I rarely use bottle touch up cleansers though because I find it faster & cheaper to use a wet rag and shampoo. I have also not tried the miracle groom product line.

For spray, again, I use world champion, but don't ever let it freeze because it will separate and chunk and nothing can be done to re-emulsify it. I haven't used show sheen in probably 10+ years after I found out how drying it was. I don't care for the Santa Fe style one either, I found it to leave a sticky waxy buildup. I have not tried laser sheen. I liked Silverado's version ok and cowboy magic's worked ok too.

I have seen people post good reviews about goop, coconut-oil, and some type of product (pink maybe) for ethnic hair. I have not tried any of those, so can't give a pro or con.

I have NEVER used baby powder or chalk to whiten or cover ip stains. Pretty much the only stain you can't get out is aluminum.
