    Default Do you use any veterinary products on your hair or skin?

    I'm intrigued by people who report that using various products for horses' manes, for example, works wonders for their hair and are lots cheaper. Any truth to such claims? I wonder if there are more chemicals in those products...or possibly fewer?

    Does anyone use anything on their hair or skin that was designed for animals or buy stuff at Petco?

    Only thing I can think of: I use Moo Creme or Udderly Smooth that was - as far as I know - initially developed for stopping cracked, dry skin in cow teats.

    Have you ever felt of a horse's mane? It's not like human hair. I think I'll stick to human products.

    When I was in junior high there was a craze for Mane 'n Tail shampoo and conditioner. It was supposed to make your hair grow longer and stronger faster. I never tried it, but I heard some girls say they thought it made their hair shed a lot.



    I knew some that used this moisturizer that was supposed to make your nails tougher and longer because it was made for hoofs.



    I just couldn't get down with the horse products.

    Actually that's some of the stuff that was mentioned.

    Shedding - yikes.

    I'm thinking these rumors are the stuff of urban legend.

    I love Mane n' Tail! I've got long, really thick hair and Mane n' Tail works great on my hair. It lathers well and leaves my hair soft and shiny. It's good quality shampoo. You shouldn't be put off by the packaging. I love the conditioner too.

    Really! Good news then. I'm hoping I can get some very good conditioning without paying my current prices for the human stuff.

    honest to god I'm not being bitchy honest to god I'm not being bitchy

    I heard Sarah Jessica Parker rates this stuff.

    Seriously I'm not being bitchy ok???


    I have curly-wurly hair too and have seriously considered buying this stuff, too bad I live in the UK where it is not easily obtainable. I find 'Aussie' products work a charm for me. It probably costs 10 times what M&T does.

    Horse liniment works great for aches and pains. It's MUCH better than Ben Gay, Icy Hot, etc. and it doesn't stink like they do. It comes in liquid and in gel-- I prefer the gel as it's much easier to work with.

    The 12 oz. bottle runs about $10, and a little bit goes a long way:

    Products: Absorbine, sore muscles, aches, arthritis, pain relief, herbal extracts

    I've never ordered it online, I get it at a local feed store. My grandparents use it as well and they love it.

    I used that Mane in Tail crap when the craze was going on in Jr. High School and it didn't do anything for or against my hair.

    Mane N Tail is now formulated for human use. I haven't tried any Mane N Tail products I think it's mostly hype. I checked the ingredients and don't remember reading anything spectacular.
    I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep.

    A friend of mine used Mane n Tail many years ago and liked it.

    Bag Balm is also good for softening hands

    My friend had terrible excema on her hands. It was so bad she couldn't work. Nothing the doctors gave her helped, until a vet friend of ours gave her some sort of topical cream made for animals. I don't know what it was, it's been a while and I'll have to call and ask her about it, but that stuff cured her. I know she had a couple of mild outbreaks after the initial use, but she just smears a little on and it goes away.
