OMG not only does nair burn, but it didn't do much for me at all. Also, the way it smells...eww, I hate it. I would also think that if it didn't do anything good for me, than what good could it possibly do for my horse, who has way thicker hair then me? Lol. I would also do as kayty said. Good luck, and remember to use BLUNT ended scissors so you don't poke them if they decide to move or something.
