So, I've used so many different things to try to make my mare's tail soft, and it seems like they'll work for about a week and then her tail just dries out and gets all tangled up again. First off, I don't like to brush the tail, I usually just pick through it with my fingers because her tail's not all that thick to begin with and the last thing I need is a brush ripping out pieces of it!
Anyway, I have used:
Canter Mane & Tail
Eqyss Marigold spray
Eqyss Avacado Mist Detangler
My own concoction of diluted hair conditioner
Infusium 23 spray
Vetrolin detangler spray
The ones in blue above were the worst "offenders" for making her tail dry out after a few uses, and the best one out of all of them was the one in green...unfortunately also the most expensive!
I try to just rinse her tail off with water every day or so if it gets mud on it since the mud dries the heck of her tail too, but I try not to really shampoo it much since I don't want to strip it of its natural oils.
Anyway, anyone have any other product ideas for me?? (oh and tail bag isn't an option, she ALWAYS finds a way to get those out lol)
