Horse themed Hair Care- Yay or "Neigh"? Mane 'n Tail Hair Strengthener

Hay-lo everybody (I've a theme going on here!)

If you have been reading my blog, you will know that I am a haircare enthusiast  obsessive and I am constantly seeking products that will protect and restore my highlighted, heat damaged hair. I generally don't use regular supermarket shampoos because I despise the silicons of many shampoos. Instead of making my hair look better, I seek out something that will actually treat my hair, make it stronger and stop any further breakage or damage. 

I have heard much about the Mane 'n Tail brand in recent months, with celebrities like Kim Kardashian raving about the brand. Now I am certainly not Kim K's biggest fan but her hair always does look very healthy. I didn't set out to purchase this, I was just drawn to it whilst mingling around the aisles of McCabes pharmacy as I often do. It was about €14 so I picked it up. I was hoping that this would do to my hair what spinach does to Popeye. 

The product itself is very thin and watery. It smells quite strongly and I cannot describe the smell, it's not that offensive. I did use this maybe twice on my hair before I blowdried and straightened it and it stunk to high heaven, it actually smelt like burning which made me very uncomfortable altogether. I have used this on wet hair a few times and I haven't found that it has made the slightest bit of a difference even though I use it quite liberally. I certainly do not feel like this had made my hair any stronger, and I don't feel like it protects or nourishes my hair in the way that I need. This might be a dream product for some but it was a bit of a miss for me- I think I would probably avoid if you have colour treated hair like mine, particularly if you use as many heated styling tools as I do. I really wanted to like this but my hair rejected it so it's a neigh nay from me!

The search continues!
