I use MTG weekly, and braid my boy's mane and tail.

However, MTG does stink, and also makes his mane exceptionally dirty (it's white, so it stains it yellow-ish, and attracts a lot of dirt). I just use the MTG on the base of the tail, as well as his mane, I don't pull it through. I then alternate weekly between a spray in conditioner (without silicone in it), or coconut oil (super cheap - find it in your cooking aisle, it's a miracle product), throughout the mane and tail, and braid them both.

I've been doing this for about 6 weeks now I think, and i've already seen about an inch to a half an inch, a lot of top-growth too, and way less brittle and breakage.

... I would imagine the Vaseline would also make the mane exceptionally dirty and prone to attracting all sorts of dust and debris haha.

Aside from the smell, I like MTG. Haven't had any bad effects yet. I've used it once every 1-2 weeks and Caly's mane has grown almost 3 inches in the last 2 1/2 months. I wish I had used it more consistently, but I'm pretty happy with the results I am getting! It's also growing out the short hairs that had been rubbed at the top of her tail. The skin on her tail bone had been pretty dry before I used the MTG; now it doesn't seem as bad as before, which I was told could be part of the reason she was rubbing the top of her tail in the first place.
I would at least spot test the MTG, if you can borrow some from a friend or find a sample size. Some horses do have allergies to it, so definitely spot test first.
