There is an actual horse product called 'Silicone', that I am prettysure some one on here has experince using as well, My friend keeps a stocked shelf of the stuff in her barn, I think she gets it form tractor supply, but I have used it on her horses tails and manes before and I have seen her use it, when they have dreadlocks, once you put that in their mane or tail the knots and everything are GONE! It's like magic....I can get some more info on stuff like who makes it all how much is sold in a bottle and the cost tomorrow and post it...I'm telling you this stuff works wonders! It will amaze you....
