Yeah I have used coconut oil on my own hair before, and it's amazing. Basically just makes the hair shinier, and a little stronger to breakage. I haven't used it on Bali's tail before though...

hmm not sure about baby oil I never used it on my horses before! I don't know if it has silicone in it or not but if so you want to try not to use silicone based products on the hair it drys it out. I use Eqyss products and CO and have great results from both!

I used the coconut oil before...I really liked it except that it did collect dirt very easily, so I would probably leave it in for a couple days then rinse. Here's thunders tail after braiding with coconut oil

I think baby oil is more mineral or petroleum based. Not as good as a plant based oil like coconut or olive oil. Actually, if I remember my chemistry right, lanolin is one of the only things that has the correct molecular structure to be absorbed by the skin, so I wonder if it might be better (?) I'm sure it would be too expensive to use on a horses hair.

I absolutely love this stuff and you can get it at at most stores that carry hair care products for black people

coconut oil isn't expensive at all and you can find it in the organic section in your grocery. It goes a LOOOOONG way as well :)
