Mane growth question

I recently got a braider to braid my horse at the last show that I was at. I normally braid my own and others but I did not have the time, unfortunately. The person who braided cut his mane too short to support strong braids (it's about 3-4 inches long now, and his mane is on the thicker side, even with pulling.) Anyway, are there any shampoos or remedies where I can make his mane grow back to normal at a faster rate? I've been washing it with a shampoo that isn't supposed to dry out the natural oils, which I think is supposed to help.

Thanks everyone!

MTG (Mane tail groom) might work. Or Coconut oil for that matter. I personally like MTG though. Just put the MTG in the roots of his name every week or so.

MTG won't work. Honestly I would just put him on a biotin supplement. The best - and one of the most affordable ones on the market is Vita Biotin Crumbles. It's water soluble so you don't have to worry about OD'ing them on one vitamin.

I originally used it on my gelding when we first bought him because he had terrible feet... With this, his feet got stronger, and his crappy tail grew VERY quickly. Now I use it as hair support also :)

Thanks for the suggestions!

I know of a few people at my barn who swear by MTG. I've never heard of the supplement but I'll look into it for sure!

Thank you for putting this on here. I used to feed biotin crumbles years ago and then all my feed stores quit selling them and then the place I ordered them from online quit and I have been looking for them for forever and finally just gave up.

I use MTG on my mare once a week and I am seeing a huge difference. The smell is horrible but the price is low, and its a simple weekly routine. Some people don't like it because some horses have allergic reactions, or they don't see the results they were expecting. I defiantly recommend it :)

I'm seconding the biotin, when we got Bella she'd been roached so we put her on biotin to help her hair grow back and its amazing.
