Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner is back in stock in the bellabox store – and this horse shampoo is definitely not just for animals!
Some of you may be a little confused. I will admit when I saw Mane ‘n Tail for the first time lying around the bellabox office my first response was “are we doing an animal box now!?”
No, we are not. Mane ‘n Tail is a shampoo and conditioner that was designed for horses, so everyone’s confusion is understandable! Once some of the horse trainers realised how good it was, they started using it on their own hair. It’s perfectly safe for you and for your pets – including dogs and cats.
This range has plenty of celebrity fans, and it’s often referenced as a beauty secret for maintaining soft, luscious and shiny locks. Demi Moore’s stylist Tara Smith revealed how the actress keeps her locks looking so smooth and glossy: “For extra-deep conditioning, we sometimes use Mane 'n Tail. It's the old standby horse shampoo, and it gives her hair amazing shine!”
Other celebrity fans of the range reportedly include Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Kardashian. It’s also the official shampoo of The Ellen DeGeneres Show’s Green Room, and has also been featured in a segment on the show.
So how does it stack up? I decided to test it out! I have long hair, naturally wavy, and I tend to straighten it with my GHD. I usually wash it every second day. It’s quite thick and tends to lack volume.
I was a little worried about the smell of Mane ‘n Tail – would it have a strange animal scent? But no, it smells like normal shampoo and conditioner. Nothing too overpowering, just a nice clean scent.
The shampoo lathered up really well, and my hair felt very clean. I often do two washes, but I just did one because it felt like enough. The conditioner was what I was really excited to try, especially since it’s what makes Demi Moore’s hair so shiny! It very easy to work through my hair, and rinsed out very well.
My hair felt soft afterwards and was full of body. It definitely didn’t feel weighed down, and it was easy to style once it was dry.
