M-T-G on People?

Has anyone tried using M-T-G on their own hair and if so, how/how often was it applied and what were your results? Thanks.

No I haven't LOL and with the feel of it, I don't think I'd want to :)

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

I wouldn't be so concerned with the feel so much as the smell.
Ink and aggiegirl14 like this.

Smells like burnt gunpowder to me. I have not used it regularly but my BO swears by the stuff

I'd be quite curious to know if it's ok for people! I use coconut oil already and its supposed to help with hair growth, but mtg works so well with my horse I might have to try!

I believe sulfur and paraffin oil are in it... which would explain the smell. And while they would be "okay" for human use, as most animal hair care products are, they will make most hair types a bit greasy and a bit smelly. I had an african american friend in college that used the stuff all the time. it was pretty icky!!

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

M-T-G - you've got to tell me! I am intrigued and bald (but bearded).

My mare has only a skimpy mane and I am tempted to hog it.

What is M-T-G and why might one use the same stuff as I use on my horse??

Should I also eat grass?

They make a human version that I'm assuming doesn't smell like rancid bacon.

If you use it on your self, PLEASE PLEASE make a video of people's reaction as they pass you. Stinky is not a strong enough adj.

When we got our paint he had a little rain rot, and MTG did a great job for that......BUT that horse and all his tack still stink like rotten eggs. You can't wash the smell off your hands either.
I have to say as dirty and stinky as he is, it has made his skin and hair anew. I can't wait till warmer weather to get him cleaned up. His pad will hit the garbage as well.
