I bought the shampoo and conditioner a while ago and I must say I really love this product! I have shoulder length hair, wavy, and oily. Since I've been using this I find that my hair is so much more shiny and silky. I always use the shampoo and conditioner together because if you don't your hair will be really dry! The reason I gave this a 4 is because I notice that I have a bit of dandruff now. I don't know for sure if it's because of the shampoo or because the weather keeps going from hot to cold all the time that my skin is going bonkers. All-in-all great product if you have oily hair. If you have dry hair I don't recommend.
Edit: A few months later...I would NOT repurchase this! It has dried out my hair really badly.
I have fairly thick, wavy, waist-length hair. As anyone with this type and length of hair knows, the roots get oily at a normal rate, but the ends stay dry.
Mane 'n Tail is an excellent shampoo. It really helps make my hair soft and shiny, and it's easy to lather and unscented. However, I have extremely strong hair that never gets split ends, I never blow dry it, and I only use heat styling tools maybe once every two months, so it might be a little too harsh for people with damaged hair. I also wouldn't recommend it for colored hair.
I have been using this product for about 3 months, and I have seen no difference in my hair. In the first month or so, the product was working well. After a while I realized the product was making my hair VERY greasy. I recommend using this product for a month and then switch of with another shampoo every other month. This product was originally ment for horses, so it causes alot of build up.
I LOVE MANE n TAIL, MUST use the conditioner along with the shampoo and USE AS DIRECTED to see any type of results. Makes hair soft, the only thing they could do to improve this product is add afloral scent or somthing that smells a little better.
AVOID! I bought this on the hype created by various magazines and now use ut for shampooing my dogs, which is what it's meant for. Dried out my highlighted hair appaulingly....not a good shampoo. It's an animal product and really isn't formulated for human hair ...
I literally hate this line of shampoos and conditioners. My hair always, ALWAYS feels insanely dry and i cannot even get a brush through after i use it. My sister has it, thats why i use it when i visit, she has fine, oily, curly hair and she likes it. I have long, mid back, thick hair which tends to get dry.
So, perhaps if you have oily fine hair it will work for you. Otherwise, thumbs wayyyy down.
I have very long, oily, fine hair. My hair tangles easily, and shampoo tends to make that worse. I have to wash my hair everyday due to having a very oily scalp. I had tried many different kinds of shampoo in the past, and all of them tangled my hair. Mane & Tail is the only shampoo I have found that leaves my hair tangle-free and moisturized without conditioner (conditioner weighs my fine hair down). I use it exclusively now, and have no plans to switch. Definite repurchase!
Works great on my horse, because that is who it's for! Cleans and detangles his mane and tail well, but on my hair, not so hot on my fine but very curly hair. I'll stick with Devachan Devacurl.
I have to say I wasnt expecting any miracle work when I bought this. I originally bought this without the condidtioner and I noticed nothing special in my hair besides there might be a little less breakage, but after I paired it with the condiditoner my hair felt and looked amazing! I have very curly color treated and damaged hair (from straightening it every day) if you have hair like me and you are expecting growing results by straightening every day still, you need a reality check, I began leaving my hair curly everyday and when I finally left it curly for a whole month (with the exception from straightening it twice) i noticed my hair had grown a whopping inch (which is amazing for me, my hair had only grown an inch in 5 months previously) , I believe its from the shampoo as well as the condidtioner, but I cant be sure. But paired together it makes my hair thicker, and silkier. I love these products.
My friend recently gave bottles of Mane 'N Tail shampoo and conditioner as I had mentioned that my hair has been growing terribly slow. I've been using this product for about 2 months now and have already noticed a significant difference in my hairs health. I have thick, wavy hair that almost over-produces oils for my hair as I mistreat it so much. I straighten, blow dry and spray my hair all the time, so it gets a lot of hell from me. Mane 'N Tail has already made my hair stronger, shinier and it definitely feels more lush. It does dry your hair out a lot unless you use really good conditioner. The Mane 'N Tail conditioner does fight the drying effect but I also find that if you want to save some money, pairing it with Tresemmes deep moisturizing conditioner works wonderfully. My hair has sped up in growth (I can honestly say that) as I just dyed my hair a week ago and can already see some roots. However, if you have fine/thin hair, I do not recommend this product for you. It can dry out your hair out and makes it have the same feeling as if you had just bleached your hair (just without all the hairs breaking off and splitting).
