Hair, like hoof, grows from the inside out- meaning the only way to grow a nice coat in is to have a well-nourished, healthy horse. I would be looking into what is causing an abnormal shed (nutrition, cushings, fungal issue, etc) and treat that, but the only thing that will help the hair grow back in well is feeding the horse right and preventing any further damage to the skin. Conditioners, etc, can help KEEP hair from drying out and help it stay looking nice once it's already grown, but the whole 'growing faster' bit is advertising hogswash.
