    I was just reading a thread on using human shampoo on horses, and so i was wondering for people who use human shampoo on their horse(s), which brand do you prefer? Why?.

    I also have a question, is it safe to use the new "color enhancing" shampoos made for humans on horses?

    I prefer Suave...because its cheap lol, and it smells good.

    I've also used Infusium 23 when I was trying to grow out mane/tail, and I really liked that too.

    I definately wouldn't use dishsoap on your horse. Have you ever washed your hands with dishsoap and it takes you 10 minutes just to rinse it all off? Bad idea.
    If you are going to use human shampoo, use baby shampoo. Gentlest that you can buy.
    Do not use color enhancing shampoo. Chemicals...not a smart idea.

    The only time I use human shampoo is usually the first bath of the summer when they are all dandruffy from losing thier winter coats....

    and then I'll use DILUTED head and shoulders.:D It works great!

    Dove, especially for the mane and tail! Thats my favorite, but I use anything that I have lying round the house too.

    I like Johnson's Baby Shampoo b/c it smells SOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD and it's very mild, so it won't irritate their skin like some other human shampoos may.
