Coconut oil!!!!!!!!!!!! My mare's tail has no more static and no more tangles... well, the tiny tangles it gets now are SUPER easy to brush out, nothing like the "dread lock" type tangles that she used to get if I went even 3 days without brushing her tail. Coconut oil is amazing. You can put it on wet or dry hair, start at the top and work your way down, working your way through the hair with your fingers. Then brush it to make sure it is evenly distributed. It'll look kind of stringy and greasy at first and you'll be like "WHY the heck did I try this!?!??!" But a couple of hours later (or the next day) it's like the fairy godmother of beautiful tails paid a visit. It truly moisturises, does NOT dry it out, doesn't coat the hair in "plastic" like show sheen and cowboy magic and the like, not greasy once it's absorbed, and it smells good!!! It also makes the hair stronger. I put it in my mare's tail once a week.
