Great product!
I love show sheen! However, I give it only 3 stars because the "sprayer" parts for the 2 bottles I ordered were missing. Lucky I didn't throw the empty bottle away. Otherwise---- Show Sheen is awesome, been using it for years! Would highly recommend!

Good product for enhancing the cleaning process of your horse. Be careful not to get it where your saddles goes as it will be very slick. I would recommend this product.

Have used this product for over 30 years and never let's me down. This is a basic must have for grooming tote. Works great on mane and tail for tangles. And keeps the stains down on my light colored horses the night before shows when they have to be spotless.

gets tge job done
There's nothing much to say. It does what is suppose to do. I only spray on my horses tail. Never in their body. I exercise my horses everyday, if you spray on their bodynthe saddle would slip Never on their mane, gets to slippery

My dogs coat shine!!!!
My dogs breeder recommended this product. I have a Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky & a small mix breed. After I finish brushes their undercoats I spray this on a finishing brush and brush it through. I have gotten more compliments on their coats. It really brings out the shine and color.

I have used Showsheen for about 30 years, and have always liked the results so I have never even tried anything else even though I can get them for less money. I find even with shipping fees I can get it for less through Horse.com than locally, so I'm an all around happy shopper. Thanks

A must have for any barn
I rated this product average for one reason only. It always came as a spray bottle unit. This time I received two bottles with no sprayer. This is an inconvenience. The product is outstanding though

Actually purchased the gallon of hair polish and this sprayer happened to come with it. I really bought this product for dealing with the long coats of my Great Pyrenees dogs but it also works well on my horse's mane and tail.

I always use this after a bath while the hair is still wet. Adds shine and helps keep off dirt dust and mud.

Summers here are dusty and dry so this product keeps dust off a freshly washed horse for up to 3 days so a dry groom will keep the horse looking good without a daily bath

what is the difference in the hair polish and the finishing mist?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The mist is just something which can be used after shampooed. Silk Proteins strengthen mane and tail hair for a more beautiful appearance and a fresh scent. The mist repels dust, the shampoo cleans more of the area.
Is there a product available to grow hair on spots of skin?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Showsheen is great for putting a shine on a coat and repelling dirt, or at least making dirt come off easily. (Be careful not to put it on the saddle area, as a low withered horse covered with Show Sheen can easily have a saddle slipping.) But for bald spots on skin, any product like Vasoline that keeps the area soft is helpful. If the horse has a dark coat, I like to use a Vitamin E cream as it helps stave off white hairs regrowing. But if you have recurring bald spots, you need to figure out what is rubbing to take the hair off. it may be your tack or a habit that the horse has on a particular post, etc. If the bald spot is of long standing, it may be impossible to return hair to the area if the roots have been killed. ShowSheen will not hurt a bald area, but it may not help it either.
can i buy by the case?
Dario A on Oct 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. I've only bought bottle by bottle. I have only 1 horse, so by the case would take me forever to use. A little will go a long way. My bottle lasts me for months. I use it primarily on his mane and tail and squirt it on my grooming brush to do his body when necessary. He's not a "show" horse, so just ordinary brushing w/out any Sho-Sheen works for him.
Is the price in US dollars?
A shopper on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The site is American, so the price is in U.S. dollars.
what is the difference between the show sheen polish and the show sheen mist?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Show Sheen Polish has more multiple uses. I use it for detangling, or to spray and groom at same time. Also to add more sheen for show. The mist is more a touch up to use on a well groomed horse just before you show him.
