What It Is
Mane N Tail is made by Straight Arrow and has been around for a long time. It was created at the Katzev horse farm in New Jersey. Initially, Mane N Tail shampoos and conditioners were targeted at show horses to keep their manes and tails looking show-ready, but the products also work on human hair. In addition to the original shampoo and conditioner, Straight Arrow also makes Mane N Tail styling creams, leave-in hair treatments, and hand-and-nail cream.

How It Works
Mane and Tail hair growth works when the person uses the shampoo and conditioner regularly. This nourishes and conditions the hair and scalp. By cleaning and treating deep down to the scalp — where new hair grows — the products both promote and maintain healthy hair growth. Mane and Tail hair growth products work on all kinds of hair, including color-treated, relaxed, and permed hair.

So does Mane N Tail really work for hair growth? If the testimonials on the Mane N Tail website are any indication, the answer is a resounding YES! Brandy S. writes that, nine months after she first tried the product, "my hair has grown so much, I even have beautiful baby hairs!!" However, at one site, Main and Tail hair growth shampoo gets more mixed reviews: it gets a 3.7 rating out of 5. Women say that the shampoo makes their hair "rough to the touch" and their ends dry. Other women have had more success mixing the shampoo with their other favorite shampoo products as the Mane N Tail shampoo is a "heavy-duty volumizing and thickening product."

Reviews for the Mane and Tail hair growth conditioner are also mixed. It gets a 3.8 out of 5 at one consumer review site. Women say that, in combination with the shampoo, it "made my shiny healthy hair, dull and dry." Other women, however, have had a much more positive experience. They say that the conditioner is "the only thing that detangles my hair" and "nourishes."
