Lincoln Piaffe Mane & Tail conditioner

The product is quick and easy to apply - you don’t need much product to cover the tail evenly.

Very little brushing was needed to make the tail knot-free. The hair felt soft and it had a lovely shine to it too.

The effects lasted for seven days before the tail became more difficult to brush and more product was needed.

This conditioner is very good value for money and our tester highly recommends it.

Once the tail was dry any tangled were easily removed. the end result was a soft, shiny and fuller tail.

Nettex claim the results will last for up to seven days and our testers reports that it does last for this long. The tail remained easy to brush - very little bedding was stuck in the tail each morning and what there was was easy to remove.

This is one of the more expensive detangles available, but a little goes a long way and the results you get do last.
