The benefits of horse shampoo for human hair

You may have heard claims that horse shampoo is not only suitable for human hair but it can make hair appear thicker, fuller and even cause it to grow faster.

The key to healthy hair

The average person’s hair grows about 1.25cms every month. Healthy hair is dependent on the nutrients in your diet (medications may also play a role) and on external factors such as the shampoos and conditioners you use to clean and moisturise your hair. The shampoo and conditioner you use can influence how strong your hair is. Dry and brittle hair breaks off easily but moisturised hair is full, glossy and bouncy.

The natural oils your hair creates are your body’s means of keeping hair healthy and moisturised. If you use horse shampoo, it makes sense logically that it should not be used every day because horses are not shampooed every day. Thus oils are given time to build up before the next wash. Washing your hair every two days will allow the oils to build up enough to deliver adequate moisture without leaving your hair looking or feeling dirty. Make sure you follow up with a good quality conditioner after using your horse shampoo (or any shampoo).

Human hair vs horse hair

Human hair and horse hair have a similar genetic construction. Horse hair is somewhat thicker and coarser than most human hair.Horse hair is even used to make brushes and the bows of musical instruments. If you have very fine hair, horse shampoo may not deliver the results the same way as it would with thicker hair.

How it works

Horse shampoo triggers the hair to swell from the follicle and makes hair appear thicker and fuller. The hair shaft swells to give you the voluminous locks you’ve always dreamed of. It is the perfect treatment for dry and brittle hair when used in increments. So horse hair shampoo for humans is a viable option to revive tired hair.

Different horse shampoos that are available

Shampoo is designed to clean the scalp without irritation and without stripping the hair of all of its natural oils.The ingredients in horse shampoo are very similar to those of shampoo made for people.However, horse shampoo is designed to make horse’s manes and tails look and feel soft, yet remain thick and strong.
