So this year I was attempting to find another solution. I'll have to check into that Vetrolin product you mentioned, because I really don't see spf 8 doing anything and I've noticed that seems to be all the higher you can get as far as spray in conditioners/detanglers go.
Once I even bought that Shapley's black horsey spray paint
and it ended up drying her tail out horribly and it took much longer than I had imagined to cover all the orange!
I wish they sold a simple shampoo with some dye in it that would gradually dye it darker after several washes...I tried that QuicBlack stuff but it does nothing except for turning my hands purple!
What about throwing an old sheet or blanket on her while the dye sets? I've seen it done at the show stable I worked at, their studs tail would sun bleach and the BO had an old thin sheet just for that purpose... Posted via Mobile Device
