We have 'ethnic' sections too, which just means we care enough about those with different types of hair, skin, and cultures to provide products for them. Doesn't necessarily mean anyone's racist.

I personally don't like tripe or chitterlins, but my local supermarket carries both of them for folks who enjoy them. Not quite sure how that would be racist, unless certain groups are completely separated from the general population, and only allowed to shop in the ethnic sections.

Anyway, getting back to what you should or shouldn't put on your horse. Furniture polish contains toxins that can be absorbed through the skin, so I'd be very careful about using it. You might want to consider looking at the ingredients and reading the warning label before you decide to spray it on your animal.

Very few 'Mainstream' supermarkets stock 'ethnic' products at all and the one's that do have them totally separate, in a different part of the shop,

If she is using the furniture polish below the bone of the tail, and using it responsibly then it should be fine.

I used ethnic hair spray to keep my horse's tail free of tangle, and shiny. And then I use dish soap or w/e is laying down to bathe him.

A question on the "ethnic" hair products. What would be good to use as a detangler for manes and tails?

I noticed the local Walmart has some ethnic hair products, but as I have never used them myself or know anybody that uses them, I am not sure what would be useful for my horses. But I am always looking for an inexpensive detangler. Any ideas?

I have tried the detanglers made for children but they don't seem to do much for a horse's coarse hair.

Where would I find "Pink?" Would it be with the shampoos/conditioners or ???

Interesting! I have seen ethnic hair products at Walmart over here in the USA, and we are in a rural, not-to-ethnic area. I just figure all the Walmarts must stock the same items.

It is generally in the ethic hair section. My local Walmart carries it, as does Target and most of the drug and grocery stores. You shouldn't have too hard a time finding it. Not surprisingly, it comes in a pink bottle.
