Mane 'n Tail detangling spray vs Cowboy Magic detangler...

If you've used both, which do you prefer?
Neither one has silicone in it which is super important to me since Lacey must have the driest tail in the world because if I spray Show Sheen on it or anything similarly siliconed, it immediately starts breaking all over the place.
I've been using Cowboy Magic on her for some time and while I love it, it's expensive! A 4oz bottle of the Mane 'N Tail stuff is only $3.99 at the store while Cowboy Magic detangler is $8.99 for the same amount.
Both of them say that they condition which is an important detail for me since Lacey has such dry hair.

I just don't want to get the Mane 'N Tail and discover that it gets used up super quickly since my current bottle of Cowboy Magic has lasted me about 2 years with monthly use.

I dunno, it's a quandary. If I had all the money in the world, I'd buy a bottle of Show Sheen since that's great on wet hair and get a 16oz bottle of cowboy Magic detangler too so I had something for every situation. However, at the store that would run me about $40 and I really don't need to, and shouldn't, spend $40 on hair products.

I'll probably just go with the Cowboy Magic, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. :)

Also, if anyone has any other suggestions of reasonably priced awesome detanglers, go for it.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Something that you can try is detangler of kids. It works super well and is usually much cheaper. You can get a bottle for a couple of dollars and if you don't like it you can go back to using whatever works for you. The cheap stuff generally works just as good as the expensive stuff. I live by show sheen but that's just me and I make up my own mix which works great but is more $$$$$. Good lUck

I agree. We use Suave detangler for kids and it works just as well as any horse product we've tried.

I use mane and tail just when I'm getting knots out before I ride, but cowboy magic when I want a stunning shiny glossy tail for a show :) mane and tail works, but I find doesn't give such a shiny/conditioned tail cowboy magic does :) haha but then again I'm a little bit of a dressage diva when it comes to grooming xD

I use both, sometimes at the same time lol. They work for my long-haired horses:

Cowboy magic. Deja's hair is always sun bleached at the ends and feel like straw, but CM makes them nice and soft again.
