Mane 'n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner - Hair Product Review

In 2013, I made the decision to hack off all of my hair.

Lets face it, my hair has been through chemical and product HELL... and it is no body else's fault but my own. Either way - I am trying to make up for my abusive relationship with my hair now by sourcing the right products to get my hair back on track.

In December I ventured into Dis-Chem to do some last minute Christmas shopping and decided to ask one of the shop assistants to recommend me some good products to help my hair grow. I'm not blonde - well technically there are parts of my hair that are blonde - but with regards to the insulting idiom, I am not blonde. I do know that you cannot hold all hope in a product to miraculously give your hair a growth spurt... but right now I am so desperate that I would try just about anything.

The sales lady took me down the aisle and pointed directly at Mane 'n Tail. I'd obviously heard of 'horse shampoo' in the past and had even considered heading down to my friends stables to sneak some of her horse's hair products away for myself (insert sly yet depressingly desperate giggle here). Well.. lucky for me they have now made a human-friendly version after a few experimental horse lovers decided they were going to try using horse shampoo on themselves after seeing the amazing results on their horses! True story.  



She told me that my best bet would be the Herbal-Gro set after I told her a bit of my tragic hair history. Unfortunately they only had the conditioner in stock so I settled for a different Mane 'n Tail shampoo (scandal!).

She recommended the Mane 'n Tail Deep Moisturizing Shampoo to accompany my conditioner.
  
The first thing that I do when choosing a new shampoo and conditioner is see how it smells. There is nothing better than having a wonderfully scented hair product. They both passed the test. 

The Herbal Gro Olive Oil Complex Conditioner has a coconut / cocoa butter fragrance to it without it being over-bearing which could lead to headaches. It is a soft and gentle smell. It helps to strengthen the hair as well as nourish it and reduces breakage. It leaves your hair feeling silky smooth and tangle free. 

The Deep Moisturizing Shampoo has a sweet, berry-like fragrance to its blue liquid. Personally I prefer the Herbal-Gro fragrance but both are divine either way. The shampoo is deeply hydrating as its name suggests. If you have dry or damaged hair then this is the one for you. 



They hold qualities of locking in moisture and repairing the damaging effects of heat-styling, chemical-use and environmental factors have to your hair. They fortify hair with Vitamin E and Provitamin B5. They are honestly just excellent and I am so happy that I decided to go out on a whim and try it out. I don't think I can go back now!

Celebs such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Anniston are big fans of this product and even go as far as to say that it is a beauty secret.


 After a month of using this product I am beyond impressed. Not only does my hair feel light and silky soft after every wash - but it has also dramatically helped my hair grow. I know that is a matter of opinion and some people just won't believe that but trust me - after popping hair growth tablets for the last year with little to no results - then using this magical product for one month.. the results are phenomenal! It isn't unnoticed to friends and family either. I have been getting so many lovely compliments and questions as to how my hair is growing so fast and I am only but happy to share my new secret.

I'd recommend it to anyone and will definitely be buying new bottles when my first stash has been depleted.

Mane 'n Tail is now available in South Africa (thank you!) and you can buy it at your nearest Dis-Chem.

Price: R90.00 for a 335ml bottle

  5. I have been looking for something to help my hair. I filmed a pilot over a year ago where I had to go from dark auburn to Christina Applegate circa Married With Children blonde - and the results were insane and horrible for my hair. I'm back to brunette and all of the deep conditioning in the world can't give my hair the strength or length that I once had back.

    I'm definitely going to try this! Hopefully it is in the states.

  9. I never smell a shampoo or a conditioner, but I might start whenever I buy in a shop. I often buy my hair care products online, so I have to trust someone else's reviews.

  17. I've hear a lot of things about Horse shampoo. Never thought it would really work.. Thinking about cutting of my hair. but the letting it grow back part is keeping me from it. Maybe I should try this if it's taking to long. xx

    1. Be careful - yes it will always grow back - but it takes YEARS!

    2. I know it will. But the shortest I will cut it is a bobline also normally my hair grows pretty fast so fingers crossed it still does when I cut it off.

  18. I've always seen this line at the store, but I had no idea they were this good. Great review!

  23. I've been using Mane N Tail for 2 weeks now and the results are amazing!
    My hair didn't grow because it was always damaged and kept breaking off. But after 2 weeks of Mane N Tail, my hair is much stronger and the split ends are gone.

    Really worth trying people :D!

  24. I have been hearing that Mane N Tail is good for hair loss as it grows back hair after prolong use. Keeps your hair strands stronger and smoother. Thanks for such wonderful post. Cheers!

  26. Hi! I just moved to Dubai 5 months ago and the water here is destroying my hair... Didn't realise we had such good, clean tap water back home in SA. I just bought the mane n tail herbal gro shampoo and conditioner set and was wondering if you could tell me if u mixed it with regular shampoo before use or did u just use it straight out of the bottle?
