EQyss Survivor Detangler [REVIEW]

Although I like to use the Ecolicious De-Stress , I heard a lot about the EQyss brand and decided to try their Detangler.

  • Smooths out tangles, mats or knots
  • Excellent for manes, tails, braids, or feathered legs
  • Enhances shine
  • Softens coat, mane and tails
  • Vitamin E protects hair

I have used this for over a month now and I am honestly not liking it. This is a silicone based de-tangler which I find adds a “fake” shine and rigid feel to your horses mane & tail without adding any benefits in the long run.

After usage, there is minimal positive difference on the tail, and rather a negative one with the time used. I found that it made Tofino’s mane & tail frizzy, brittle, dry and rough. Sure it de-tangles, but it takes a lot of product to do so. With that being said, shine is very minimal and frizz is not tamed. I tried it on both dry and wet tail and it seemed to work better with the tail being wet but only lasts the day.

The consistency feels silky without being sticky or gooey. The scent is strong out of the bottle, but once on the horse, it cannot be smelt, which in my opinion is good, as I did not like the floral scent.


Pros: Cons:
  Affordable

  De-tanlges temporarily 

•  Silky

 

•   Doesn’t last

•  Minimal shine

•   Silicon based

•   Drying 

•   No long term benefit

• Leaves mane & tail with a plasticky feel

Verdict: This is a big NO for me. As much as I wanted to like this, the ingredients do not help, the results are more on the negative side unfortunately.
