Here are the full instructions, and each component of the care kit as I received it:
|FOOL-PROOF. Love it.|
|Step 1: Shampoo|
|Awww...what a cute grey!|
|Step 2: Conditioner|
|Wait a minute...leave in? Brianne, tell me MORE!|
|Step 3: Shine Serum|
|The secret weapon, for sure.|
|MORE BEFORE: Look back at it.|
OK let's dive in, because this will already be the longest shampoo review known to man.
First instructions say to open the (SMALL) packet of shampoo, and dilute it in a gallon or two of water. I have to say, I was a little worried here because the packet didn't look like much. It was about how much shampoo I usually use out of a bottle for MY hair. I'm used to using a TON more of the Mane & Tail Shampoo that I use now, just for one horse wash. There was no way that I could get a whole horse washed with what I had been given as sample!
BUT, low and behold, I squeezed the packet into the bottom of a small bucket, filled it with water, and went to work! Now, you'd think with all these pictures, I'd have ONE of a soapy bucket, but I don't. Imagine it in your head.
|I LOVE BATHING HORSES!|
|Bargaining with Hatchet. Also: Our wash racks look like the ghetto.|
|Yeah, this is how I wash tails. Judge me.|
So, I filled my bucket and went to work. One standout thing that you'll notice is that the conditioner was not lathery. Not to say that conditioner is USUALLY lathery, but you can usually feel it when you're putting it on them, or in your own hair, right? Well, this just looked like water - but smelled lovely!
|I know how to work a sponge!|
|Sorry for the unwarranted boob shot - I'm not responsible!|
The final step - the shine serum - can be applied either wet or dry. I figured, what the heck, he's already wet, let's do it NOW! :D Again, no pictures. Just imagine me putting the clear goo in my hands, and applying it evenly to both his mane and tail.
This shine serum, I gotta say, might just be the pretty little bow on top of this awesome package. It smelled GREAT, is made of all-natural ingredients like macadamia nut oil and vitamin E (So it will make your horse's hair grow, LADIESSS!!) and a little bit goes a long way. I got excited and used the whole sample, but I bet I could have used that amount for a couple applications. Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it?
So now we wait, and wait, and wait.
|Hatchet doesn't mind waiting...|
|Still doesn't mind waiting.|
|Even his crack was shiny!!|
WAIT - let me do one of those cool before and after things...It's a blog, after all!
A few notes: Of course, the sun was at a romantical setting phase when we took the "After" photos, so I'm pretty sure it would have made even his dirty butt look decent, BUT I will tell you, the Body Package did bring out his coloration and his shine much more than before. It made his colors brighter, and his whites whiter! He smelled SO GOOD, and Amber let me know that his shine will last 4-5 days from now!
Now, where can you purchase this magical stuff, you say?
Well, you can always go to your nearest tack shop and see if they have it in stock (a lot of them DO!), or you can contact Amber here and purchase it from her! They've also got a very user-friendly website you can shop right off of. They also sell the sampler package that I was sent, so you can try it out for yourself before you take the dive! Perfecto.
She was definitely kind enough to send me some of this great product, so I'm sure she'd LOVE to help you discover this great brand too! Of course, you can always follow them on Facebook, or message her through there! Tell her I sent you, for sure.
Special thanks to Amber Dunmire, for introducing me to this brand - we'll be in touch! ;-)
Also to my photographer and BFF, Erin. Thanks for all the ATTRACTIVE photos of me!
