MTG and Sleazy Questions

I'm new here (Hi everyone!) and I have some grooming questions! I have Appaloosas so of course I have the thin/short manes and tails to deal with and I'm wanting to thicken/lengthen them if possible. I've been reading alot about MTG and want to try some but have a few questions first.
After you put the MTG on their tail do you HAVE to put their tail in a bag or wrap? One of my horses is out on pasture and I don't think I would be able to keep his tail wrapped up.
Also, I've read that it isn't suppose to be used out in the sun, so if I put it on in the evening and don't wrap it up and turn him back out will he be ok or is this a bad idea? Any advise would be appreciated!
Next question is on sleazys, does anyone use them? How hard are they to put on if a horse isn't use to anything like that? One of my girls had her mane eaten off before I bought her so I'm attempting to grow it back and I was thinking MTG and a sleazy might do the trick? I've seen LOTS of places to buy them, does anyone have a favorite place?
That's all I can think of at the moment but I'm sure I'll think of more, thanks for the help in advance!

I can't help you out on the sleezy but as far as the MTG, its fine to leave it without bagging it. We have a 3 year old who has a very thin mane and tail. My husband has been putting MTG on it and not bagging all winter and it is starting to grow out better. I think it does better if you can bag the tail but its not mandatory.

I use sleezys too sometimes, especailly for show prep. But it really depends on the horse, with my gelding it only took like 2 or 3 times until he understood what I was doing and then he stood still for it.

I don't bag my mares tail all the time (and I use MTG)- it seems to work better when you do but it still works without :)
