    Best Human Shampoo For Horses?

    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?

    For sale: Dominus bridle, Beval open-fronts, Centaur climate control quilts and grey w/black+white piping polo wraps

    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.

    There are times when you can trust a horse, times when you can't and times when you have to.

    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.

    I use baby shampoo if I dont have horse shampoo.. When I was a kid, I used white rain. But that was years ago..

    Suave is what we use too. We also like mineral oil for shine. Super cheap!

    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. It works great!

    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.
