Question! Color Intensifying Shampoo?

What is the best brand of color intensifying shampoo (for a dark coat)?

Also, what are your favorite whitening products?

Rio Vista is a great product. They have shampoo for most coat colors. There whiting product is wonderful.

Rio Vista works pretty good, it makes my favorite color intensifying shampoos. I don't like Quic Black or any other shampoo from that line. I used it once on my horse and it dried his skin out, and didn't really do much for his color. Others I know who have used it have had the same problem. So I stick to Rio Vista.

I've used quik black and "cowboy magic shine in yellow out" for dark or black coats. They work equally well.

The cowboy magic smells amazing... So I like it better :)

I also have used the Rio Vista and love it. For whitening, I have used Orvus, which is great, but there is an easy quick one...I can't remember the name and it is packed away so it won't freeze-it is a spray on, in a white bottle.....found it! This:
Dover Saddlery | Mane N' Tail Spray and White .
Great stuff for stockings!

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

Would RioVista work on a buckskin?
