Equine fanatics apparently have something else to thank their furry friends for, and surprisingly, it's great hair.
A shampoo and conditioner originally intended for hoses has garnered over 1,000 rave reviews on Amazon, with people claiming it made their hair look thicker, and grow faster than ever before.
Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner consistently tops the chart for the website's top rated hair products, despite being a mere £8.
"Used by both people and horses for shiny, thicker, manageable hair," reads the description. "Apply Shampoo to wet hair, massage and lather. Rinse thoroughly, repeat if desired. Follow with Conditioner which can be used as a leave-in or rinse out based on hair type and condition."
"An exclusive micro-enriched protein formula that leaves the hair soft and shiny. Gentle rich fragrant lather provides 'down to the scalp' cleansing action without stripping natural oils. Fortified with moisturisers and emollients that helps to provide body, shine and manageability for healthy-looking hair every time you shampoo," adds the manufacturer.
And the reviews are glowing, with happy customers sharing before and after shots of their glossy new 'dos.
"Cannot fault this brand!! If you have fine hair that gets greasy like me you will love this set, it doesn’t weigh hair down like other shampoos, my hair has grown so much and looks soo much thicker & healthier," wrote a customer named Natasha, who posted a picture of her hair after nine months of consistent use.
Another customer named Karen experienced results after just after one month of using Mane 'n Tail. "Best shampoo and conditioner ever. I started using this shampoo around a month ago and I'm really impressed with the results," she raved. "I have fine fragile hair and figured I've tried everything else, this can't hurt. Already my hair feels stronger, I'm losing less when washing and the difference is noticeable."
"This shampoo is one of the best I have ever used. Just after a couple of uses my hair felt stronger, shinier and thicker. I have heard this shampoo help your hair grow and I can confirm it does!" corroborated another customer. "Don't expect to go from Snow White to Rapunzel, but you will notice it is growing more than it does on average."
And one Amazon user confirmed that no equine side-effects are to be expected;
"I have always had fine hair and due to stress and anxiety, it was beginning to fall out, especially at the temples. Every time I washed my hair it seemed to come out in handfuls. I became pretty conscious of my thinning hair and tried various different products but nothing seemed to work. My sister recommended this shampoo and conditioner. I bought the moisturising products and have been using them since October last year - about 4 months. My hair has grown so much and is shinier and fuller than it ever has been. My hairdresser has noticed the difference and I have new hair growth at my temples. Feeling much more confident! I would recommend these products and will continue to buy them. Definitely worked for me and no signs of hooves growing, neighing or feeling compelled to eat from a nose bag - yet!"
