Hair. Home Recipe to get hair to grow
« on: April 28, 2014, 05:13:38 PM »
Looking for home recipies on stuff you mix to get hair to grow.  I know about rinse and rinse an rinse and rinse some more.  I am looking for sprays that will help grow hair and keep it clean and not put too much oil in it.

As far as a home brew, about the best thing I have found is a diluted solution of 1 part Infusium leave in conditioner, 1 part Kleen Sheen, and 6 parts water. We aren't real big believers in a lot of chemicals when trying to grow hair.  The less chemicals that are on the hide, the cooler they will stay.

They will stay pretty clean by simply rinsing every day, and conditioning them weekly.   

Unfortunately, there really isn't a magic formula. I sure wish there was!

Honestly, excessive rinsing is highly overated.  Keeping them in dark and cool is not.  The primary purpose of rinsing should be to keep them cool and clean.  No more than once a day should be necessary if you have a cool barn with fans.  Frankly, we don't rinse everyday.

The more you rinse, the more you need "stuff" in their hair to replace their natural oils.  I use (1) a mixture of sheen and either rag oil or WalMart pink oil a couple of times a week or (2) a couple of squirts of Mane & Tail conditioner + a cup of vinegar + a cap full of fly spray in a 5 gallon bucket of water which you just pour over them.  I don't use both on the same day.  We probalby use the dip 2 or 3 times a week (it's cheaper) and the sheen mixture once or twice a week.

Be careful with leaving in conditioners.. It could lead to burning off hair, especially around shoulders where most of that water from dumping a 5 gallon pail on them lands.
Don't think you know it all; be open to let others teach you.

Could not agree more.  The day of a show, you should not be rinsing and hour or two before going in the ring.  It takes awhile for the natural oils to get back on the hair and hide.

If you are going to rinse it needs to be with cool or cold water cold water is preferred, and they need to be soaked for at least 15 minutes, you are trying to put a chill on them. If you just get them wet and call it done you are wasting your time.

As soon as your are done rinsing and getting them chilled get them in front of the fans and then blow out (do not use the heater) this will help keep them chilled a little longer.

I know people who rinse in the cooler and still hit them with chilled water (33-36*) after rinsing. They have yak hair in July.

I will third this!  I read a similar quote from chambero last spring, and we used it.  We went from rinsing a MINIMUM of 2 times a day, to rinsing a MAXIMUM of once a day......and it was the best hair we have ever had. 

Now, that is not to say that we let our steers get dirty.  As chambero said, I believe it is way more important to get them into the cooler early.
