It seems to help hold the braids a lot better and they don't try to rub them out. 93. The dry end serum works great in their tails as a detangler. The products are a heck of a lot cheaper than actual horse products. Automobile Uses: 94. It removes tar spots from the car without damage to the paint. 95.
