It even worked miracles on my app. Also BOSS makes a huge difference
Whats the point of the listerine/vinegar mix? Does it work the same way as diluted leave in conditioner? I'm trying to get my horses manes/tails to grow, and would be really interested in trying this if it works differently than the conditioner!

Off topic, but funny story about the distinct smell of MTG. A few years ago my husband and I were looking for some property and went to an open house. Every now and then, I would get a whiff of MTG. When we were getting ready to leave, the realtor approached us to say good bye and I could smell it very strongly then. I realized that the realtor's hair was thin and a bit greasy. I would swear that he was using MTG to try to get his hair to grow.

Hahahaha, that's too much! I've actually thought of doing that before, but wasn't brave enough to trap myself with the scent all day...ick, lol
Then again, it might be mean of my to trap my horses with it when I wouldn't do the same to myself...but they've never complained, so....

I used MTG for months and got nothing out of it, except for a greasy, dull, brittle tail.

I recently reverted to keeping the tail hosed with water 2-4 times a week, brushed when wet, and allowed to flow freely. I noticed a difference in doing just that.

Just yesterday I made my first application of all natural extra virgin coconut oil, and was pleased with the shiny, non-greasy suppleness it gave his tail. I'll continue with coconut oil for a couple months and see if I prefer it to just water.

I stay away from any heavy oils, silicon based shine sprays, and just most common tail sprays and conditioners in general.

Water is healthy and hydrating, and the coconut oil, I'm happy with so far. I'm still waiting to see what long term effects it has.

So a product for the horse's tail that smells like bacon grease & barbeque huh? Might be tempted to cut off his tail & throw it on the grill if it grows long enough!

The listerine kills any bad germs or anything that might be causing the itching. Vinegar is vitalizer to the skin and hair. It keeps manes and tails shiney, and slick. Extremely easy to brush their manes and tails out even if you only groin your horse once a week it works very good. I don't buy any sprays, conditioners, or anything like to use on our horses. I need to get new pictures but we are in the process of buying a place so I have no idea where our cameras are.

Most conditioners only moisturize the hair and skin, not solve the issue of rubbing.
