Best mane detangler?
« on: December 27, 2013, 08:33:07 pm »

Remember last year the discussion on mane & tail care, there was some expensive detangler product that was available at Expos?  There was a promotion on it for awhile, too.  Several people commented that they liked it, and a little bit goes a long way, and that it lasts a long time, too.
Well, I didn't need any at the time, but I was thinking about splurging on some now with some of my Christmas money.  But with the new forum, I have lost the thread. 
I've got all kinds of Cowboy Magic and Vetrolin, Silk, and Equiscentials, but my gelding has such a coarse mane, I'd like to try a product that endures more than 1 day. 
Does anybody know what I'm talking about, and remember the name of the product?

I use Eqyss survivor and won't use anything else. I think you may be thinking about Manely Long products though.

Yes I think that is it. I have some.  Bought it in Eau Claire at Beths Tack.  I had a lot of the Equiscentials so I used that last summer. I love Equiscentials that you buy at St Croix Saddlery.

It's my go-to product for hurricane dreadlocks. It does last forever, at least with only 2 horses.

I bought the Manely stuff, but I've never felt it was any better than my economy-priced standby, Vetrolin Detangler.

I use the Manely Long Mane & Tail.  With just one horse it doesn't break my bank, and I love it.  G's mane has never been this nice with any other product  I've tried. I only need to use it once a month and it keeps the wind knots at bay and it has been very silky.[\size]

Today we had a "heat wave" in Minnesota, so I put some Cowboy Magic in his mane & tail.  In effort to preserve it, I don't comb it out unless there is a special occasion :)
If the Mane-ly product isn't significantly superior, I might pass (since the shipping is $8). 
I guess what I need is a product with a guarantee.  I've spent a lot of money on products over the years!
I bought two of the large bottles of Cowboy magic on sale last summer, so I guess I will just use those.

I like Santa Fe Instant Detangler, but when I was looking for a link to post it here, I couldn't find it for sale anywhere, and I don't remember where I ordered mine from.  I've also used coconut oil pretty effectively as a detangler/conditioner, and I suspect it's a little less damaging than some of the products that contain silicone and/or alcohol.

Mane-ly products are worth every cent and last a very long time. You only need a little bit and like Kate, you only apply it once a month or so. I am still on my original bottle and I use it on a mini, a pony and a horse. I have had it over a year now. My horse's manes and tails sparkle in the light and I have tried every product out there. Do not be afraid of the price, it lasts a very long time.

I use Mane-ly too and love it!  It lasts a long time and I usually apply just a little bit every week or so and don't have a bit of problem with the hair getting tangled.

I still have a bit of my old 8-ounce bottle of Survivor, but it's almost empty and I sure won't spend $12+ bucks for four ounces.  I bought the Manely Mane & Tails last year at the special price; found that it does everything it says it does. Good stuff.

I put the Manely product in the back until I use up the Survivor, which will be soon because I have 3 horses, all with dirty winter dreadlocks right now...

Actually, it was 2012 and the product you're talking about is Mane-ly Long Hair.

Sedona from the old board sells it here:  http://www.thetrophyline.com/

Love the Mane-ly products. It's the only thing I've found that can keep Dusty's crazy thick and long hair tangle free and conditioned. I also use it in his feathers to keep the stickers out.
