A blend of high quality silicones, water soluble and non for the perfect formula, wit keratin and Vitamin B.
The ingredients of today are not the same as those 20 years ago, when silicones first entered the pet grooming arena. Misconceptions and misinformation remain due to their constant presence on the Internet. Instead of covering up and hiding the use of silicones in grooming products, we would encourage manufacturers to own their silicones and join the effort to educate users.
Silicones are great with the right recipe!

I am new to the products, what do you recommend to buy first?
As a System you with find outstanding results! We recommend a Starter grooming kit, supreme has everything one would need for the entire horse, manes, tails, forelocks, feathers, and full body care.
If you are not ready for the full system, then start with the Polisher/Detangler and Hydrate 24, and a Detangler brush. Then add the restore shampoo and the body brushes . Remember as a system show ready results, easier maintenance and healthier hair care .
NOW THAT I HAVE THE PRODUCT WHAT DO I DO?
O.K. you finally have the product….Directions are on all the bottles and on our website. Scroll down under each product you will find more Detailed info. Please read the FAQ questions and answers, and the videos are extremely helpful. Here are some answers to some of your questions.
Do I need to wash my horse before using the products at anytime?If you have used other products; oil based, waxy, build up or any natural oil extract in them, including fly sprays, or layered with dirt and mudd, the answer is YES; you will need to wash with our Restore shampoo! The other products will prevent our product from penetrating and not absorbing properly into hair. Even while using the MLH system wash periodically and if you are using any oil base fly, spray more often, the oil prevents ours from working. Please refrain from spraying fly sprays onto the manes and tails to prolong MLH treatment, if not wash more often.
Manes and Tails are Dry and Brittle what do I do?
Answer: Do not wash (unless other product is in) and do not to brush for a 1 – 2 weeks!!! Please use our Dry Manes and Tails recipe (SHOCK) every few days for 1-2 weeks to help repair and nourish the hair quickly! Now after that you can start to wash with the restore shampoo, rinse, apply conditioner after, rinse. Use all over body, manes tail etc, use the hose to dilute and distribute throughout and rinse out. Now apply generous amount of polisher to the wet manes and tails, forelock and feather too! Take the detangler brush to the wet hair , start at the bottom and work upward! Get into the dock and the crest of the mane. Finish the body with an application of Hydrate 24, buff to add shine and extra protection.
Question: How do I get my horses manes and tails the whitest and stains removed?
-First Use the dry manes and tails treatment SHOCK (info brochure enclosed) follow this program once complete then you can start your wash then maintenance.
-After SHOCK treatment / *Wash: After treating with shock now wash with Restore shampoo it will now deep clean without damaging or bleaching the hair, through hydration. (The stain and dirt will now wash out easily.) IF some staining resides continue with the shock treatment again.

Dry Manes and Tails and Shock Treatment
SHOCK TREATMENT: AMAZING RESULTS!!
(Manely products needed: Polisher/protector and conditioner)
There are situations that occur that leaves our horses Manes and Tails dried out/damaged/stained/ and breakage . A few would be over washing, harsh shampoos, poor grooming ,and not using Manely as your regular Maintenance! Cold weather, wind, and dry climates dry hair out too. Then there are poor quality grooming products that show no results, or in fact create the dryness; whitening shampoos, alcohol base products, insufficient quality ingredients,detergents etc. Then of course there is our own responsibility in maintaining grooming on a regular basis, which I might add is very easy with Mane-ly Long Hair.
Regular maintenance includes using our products and brushing several times a week. Brushing with our brushes will help clean the hair and spread the horses natural oils, in addition to distributing Mane-ly Long Hair grooming products. When the polisher is used , brushing is easy and will not damage the hair. THE polisher protects and prevents…..its magical.
The next step is to apply this great treatment to help repair/restore and improve, prevent dryness, and pull out dirt and urine stains!
SHOCK TREATMENT RECIPE:
Take equal parts of our Conditioner/Moisturizer and Polisher/Protector and mix in the palms of slightly dampen hands or apply the mixture to slightly dampen hair(spray with hydrate 24 to dampen hair) Distribute evenly throughout the mane and tail . Use approximately a a dollar coin size OF EACH (remember those) and LEAVE IN! (do not brush if hair is dry or damaged)
You will find once you distribute it will absorb in the next day or so. It will provide a treatment that will help repair and prevent more damage from the harsh elements. Reapply in a few days if needed. For severe dryness and urine stains( if not dry and urine stains, wash with restore shampoo first!), use every other other day for a 2 week period or longer, then return to regular maintenance.
After the 2 week period wash (if weather permits) with our RESTORE SHAMPOO, rinse, condition with MLH conditoner, rinse out conditioner, and apply polisher to the wet hair, brush with the detangler brush..and now you continue with MLH maintenance program.

When to Shampoo, and why Restore Shampoo
