Infusium 23, MTG, and braiding for manes?

Bought a bottle of infusium 23 leave in conditioner to help restore my geldings mane. Along with a bottle of MTG.

A few questions for anyone who has experience with mtg, infusium 23, and/or braiding the mane and tail...

How often do you apply mtg?
Do you braid the mane and tail, if so how often?
Do you wash and condition before applying mtg?
Do you dilute infusium 23 with water or apply straight from bottle?
How often do you apply?
If braiding, would wearing a fly sheet help with bug problems?

The maker of MTG (Shapely's) has a product made especially for braiding. It's suppose to make it easier without flyaways! I've never tried it, but I need to as my Arab has long mane and is a bugger to braid!

I have used infusium 23 mixed with listerine to stop tail rubbing and to repair broken hair. I love the stuff!!!!! I don't use mtg because YouTube has a great video for putting up tails. I wash condition the tail let it dry then put infusium mixed half and half with water in the skirt of the tail and listerine infusium on the dock to prevent rubbing!

I found that if I used MTG more than once a week my horses were greasy and stinky.
So once a week should cut it.
Beware, it is gross smelling, I wear gloves when applying.
