What I do is use cowboy magic rub it between your hands rub on the mane and the burrs slide out easily. Other then that a comb and patience is the best answer I have. Once you get the burrs out use come cowboy magic to make them easier to get out next time.

Don't try to pull the burr out of the hair, pull the hair out of the burr. Any kind of conditioner will help - even plain regular hair conditioner, baby lotion or baby oil.

coconut oil. I use it for burrs, tangles and just to treat the hair.
It's good for the hair (makes it look good too).
Doesn't need to be removed (the hair must absorb it).
And it's cheap.

If you don't mind spending a little money, the Weaver Burr-out tool is amazing!!! I think I spent $30 online for mine and it saves a lot of time and cowboy magic.

WD-40!
You can find it any store and it's mostly likely already in your garage or shop :)

The hair can't hurt....not nerves

But to be serious again, yes, it can damage the hair. A lot of people aren't worried about that since it does what they want and the condition of the hair is not a big concern for them.

I go with coconut oil, because I can find it in my pantry (or grocery store if I'm out )

Some horses are allergic to it but is also supposed to be good as fly spray too.
