Espana SILK All Protein Detangler.
This is a sponsored post. The companies that sponsor the product reviews compensate me to write them. Regardless, the opinions and uses that I find for the products are entirely my own, and I only suggest and recommend products that I personally use and believe my readers could benefit from. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
The Espana SILK All Natural Protein Detangler, Full Body Sheen, and Protectant Spray with Sunscreen is actually ONE product. It seems to have about a million different uses. Luckily, you don’t have to press a bunch of buttons or anything, it’s one spray in one bottle that you can use wet, dry, or even damp.
And what does it DO? Well, first it’s a darn good detangler. It won’t get your mane and tail so slippery that you can’t braid, and it won’t make your reins dangerously slickery. It lasts for 4 days on my horse’s tail, and he lives outside and loves to roll. For someone on a budget, this is important.
The Espana SILK Protein Detangler is also something that I would describe as a full body shine inducing spray, but not so slick that your saddle will slide off spray. It creates more of a soft fluffy feeling, with a subtle healthy shine. I have been using it dry, to help cut the winter static and create a super soft coat as I curry and brush. I spritz on before I start grooming, and those static shocks are gone. It’s been helping to tame the winter coat stray hairs, too! (The photo above is my own wooly mammoth after a spritz and a groom.) It may be helpful to you to spray it directly on your brushes, this is a great way to help tame the mane. Hooves benefit from a spritz, too!
As far as the sunscreen part goes - it’s a MUST for any horse that goes outside. The sunscreen in Espana’s SILK Protein Detangler is a UV hair protectant, which helps to save coat colors from bleaching out. It protects the hairs from excessive heat from the sun. (Just a note here - this is not the same as the SPF we are used to from our own skin sunscreen. UV hair protectant products don’t have a rating!)
