Product Review: Canter Mane and Tail Conditioner

Okay, most of you know that I am a big fan of Cowboy Magic products. Well in this case I have to cheat. Though I don't know if it is really cheating when they do not offer a spray conditioner. Anyway my new favorite product is Canter Mane and Tail Conditioner.

Peggy has used it for awhile, but we normally have Showsheen on hand. With Winston who gets dreds in his mane and DaVinci with a kinky tail and Roscoe with an overabundance of tail hair that insists on corkscrewing a great spray on detangler is a must. I have used Showsheen on Roscoe's tail and watched the hair go back to a corkscrew. Such a pain.
When we went to Peggy's for the show preparation, we used her bottle of Canter. This spray got through Roscoe's mass of hair and stopped the curling.

This description is taken from Smart Pak:
Canter Silk Mane & Tail Conditioner is an award winning formula that keeps the mane and tail sleek and tangle free. Canter Silk Mane & Tail Conditioner reduces breakage and repels dirt, leaves the hair manageable, luxuriously soft and with an immaculate oil-free shine. Contains citronella to help repel flies.

Brushing the tail was so much easier and left the hair looking neat. They say the effects can last up to two weeks. That I can vouch for. Roscoe's tail is still corkscrew free even now. Mom went out and bought a bottle for us to have at the barn. Very happy with this product.

Still looked this neat well after the show.
 It is not the cheapest product, at about $17 a bottle, but well worth the cost. Plus it looks as if some sites offer larger amounts which may help with the price.

  1. Good to know! Shy's tail is always corkscrewing. . .I have been waiting for winter so I can put it up. I will be trying this for sure!
