Very THICK mane and tail

I am currently interested in a paint mare and I am really unsure if she has been groomed properly her whole life! A lady gave her to my trainer! Anyways, I was grooming her and brushing her mane and it was very thick and greasy. Her tail, she didn't like it being brushed, she would get really figity! What is a good detangler and wash? She is not mine yet, I am waiting for her 60 day training, which she is doing fabulous in, but I am starting my tack box already! Any suggestions?

I would recomend any of the Mane N' Tail or Cowboy Magic products. They are the best.

I use Mane 'N Tail shampoo and conditioner to wash and show sheen or MTG for a regular detangler. Although MTG is used to promote hair growth, so that might not be the best.

I like just using regular human shampoo. I use Suave, my trainer uses Tresseme (sp?). Anyways, get the mane and tail wet, suds it up good and wash it out. If it is really thick and greasy you may have to do this a couple of times. Then put conditioner on it and try to work it through. Rinse just a little bit out and then comb gently. The remaining conditioner works as a detangler. Just wash it out after you get it detangled. Hope that helps and have fun with the new one!

get the tail and mane REALLY wet and then a good shampoo and conditioner (making sure to wash out all the conditioner cause that can make it greasy) and then show sheen FTW! (for the win) ...

Once it has been shampood and conditioned properly, adding showsheen at the end will help you detangle everything.

Laser Sheen/Show Sheen both work great and they wont leave her tail greasy!
