HOW TO CREATE THE MANE & TAIL OF DREAMS - DITCH THE ITCH

And why silicone sprays are the number one reason why it’s not happening for you & your horse. 

Probably our most commonly asked query… “How do I grow my horse's tail back? She’s rubbed it out again!”. Or “How do I get my horse's tail soft and shiny?”

And whilst we do love helping to regrow manes and tails back with our fantastic product REGROW, we like to first look at WHY they’re rubbing it and WHY the tail is not growing soft and shiny.

For this, let’s go right back to basics. Skin being skin and hair being hair.
Human hair & horse hair is pretty similar with the only real difference being that the diameter of horse hair is thicker than humans allowing it to grow longer.

Human skin and horse skin are again pretty similar except a horse's epidermis layer (the top layer) is actually slightly thinner than ours making it more sensitive. Their dermis (second layer) is thicker slightly than ours.

It’s because of these facts, that we are so passionate about treating your horse’s hair and skin like you would your own. If you wouldn’t use something on your hair or skin, don’t use it on your horse. Their skin is likely more sensitive than yours.

Sadly, in the current equine market skin & hair products are made with cheap and pretty awful ingredients that you simply couldn’t and wouldn’t get away with using in human products.

For today I’d like to talk about mane and tail sprays; detanglers!! These sprays have always been a staple in our grooming bags since forever… because that’s what we’ve always been told to use! Most (if not all) of these products contain a high level of silicone, some even advertise as “powerful silicone spray”.

In the human world, we haven’t used silicones in hair care for years and years because it’s so very damaging to not only the hair strands but to our scalp also!

See, silicone is a liquid plastic so it will coat each strand therefore detangling and creating a shine. However, these results are not only short-lived but they cause long-term damage. Silicone is hydrophobic which means it repels water, by doing so it dries out the hair strand and also any skin that it has covered.

Dry hair very quickly becomes weak hair which then becomes broken hair. A real-life scenario with horses is that we use silicone sprays, drying out the mane and tail making it weak. We then add a rug which causes a little bit of friction but is enough to break off this now delicate, dry and weak hair.

Then, the skin! These silicone sprays also affect the skin and upset the balance by drying it out. When you have dry skin yourself, it becomes itchy… right? It’s the same with our horses, they get itchy from the dry skin and then they rub their butts and their manes!

SOLUTION

Use silicone-free products that are focused on the health of your horse’s skin and hair.

STEP 1. – First 7 days

Daily, apply COLLAGEN & KELP REPAIRING FONDANT to the skin of the mane/tail that is itching. This will heal and soothe the skin relieving any itching and get the skin back to health!

Daily, apply BEAUTIFY OIL to the hair strands of the mane/tail that are there. You will quickly see the hair start to restore; gleaming shine and no tangles!!

STEP 2.

By now the skin will be healthy. You can stop using COLLAGEN & KELP on the skin, unless you think it needs a little longer, in which case stay on step 1.

Switch to using REGROW on the skin of anywhere that needs a growth treatment.
Continue using BEAUTIFY OIL on the hair strands but you can move on to a maintenance application of 2-3 times per week.

STEP 3.

Ongoing – Use REGROW until you’re happy with the growth. Continue with BEAUTIFY OIL for as long as you’d like.

We will use it forever!

WHY IS SILICONE FREE SO IMPORTANT?

Silicones are hydrophobic which means they repel water. When it does this in hair, the very precious moisture content of just 3% is reduced and the protein bonds that make up 97% of hair become less stable and more liable to break. In a nutshell, those old-school mane, tail and coat sprays that we have all used since pony-camp simply coat your horse in silicones which yes, does make them look shiny, and yes, it does detangle their hair BUT this is short-lived and it’s actually damaging your horse’s mane, tail & coat!! Dry, fragile and weak hair leads to breakages, rubs, bald patches, and even the loss of manes & tails completely! Just say NO ... and get NAKED!

HOW LONG WILL THIS SET LAST ME?

Obviously, it depends on usage. However, on average if we allocate one set per horse, we would expect the set to last approximately 8 weeks.

WILL IT PREVENT MY HORSE FROM GETTING RUG RUBS ON HIS/HER MANE AND TAIL?

YES! Healthy, strong hair does not break and rub away! We have created this problem for our horses, not by choosing to put rugs on them, but by choosing to use harsh, drying products on them such as silicone sprays. These have made their hair strands so brittle and weak that unfortunately, rug rubs are so common. But there’s no need to fear as this damage can be reversed.

DOES THIS HELP WITH SWEET ITCH SYMPTOMS?

Yes, COLLAGEN & KELP helps to combat Sweet Inch in 3 ways:

  1. Soothes the itchy, inflamed skin which will instantly make the horse less likely to rub it further worsening the skin.
  2. It's Anti-Bacterial & Anti-Microbial properties work to destroy any bacteria.
  3. The micro-encapsulated Collagen starts the healing process.

We would also recommend using STAY PERFECT Body Spray daily to help to keep the horrid bugs away from your horse.

CAN I USE THIS ON ALL MINOR WOUNDS?

We certainly do, and it's a must-have for all of our client's grooming bags!
Obviously, you will need to use your own judgement on whether your horse is in need of veterinary attention but for most minor wounds and abrasions, COLLAGEN & KELP will help to speed up the healing process, prevent scarring, protect from environmental aggressors and bacteria whilst hydrating the skin making it as comfortable as possible for your horse.
