Are you wondering what the best shampoo is for pets? Look no further than Mane n Tail Shampoo, which is specially formulated to meet the needs of both humans and their four-legged friends.
Well, there are shampoos that we use for our hair and then there are shampoos that we use while we bathe our animals, right? But, have you ever heard of a shampoo formulated for use on both humans and animals? Like a two-in-one shampoo?
One of the reasons I was quite intrigued about buying this shampoo is because I read that it could be used on both human hair and animal fur! Yes, you read that right!

Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo: Key Ingredients And Their Benefits
The key ingredients of this product are mentioned below along with their benefits:
Collagen is known to help fight hair follicle damage and help the hair grow smoothly. It can also help reduce the thinning down of hair over time and can promote better hair elasticity and strength, thus reducing hair damage and breakage.
Citric acid can help stimulate the hair follicles on the scalp towards hair growth as it helps increase blood circulation in the scalp.
It can also help keep scalp conditions at bay and increase hair strength and reduce hair damage with its antioxidant properties.
Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo: Testing It Parameter-Wise
I always like to choose a few parameters while testing and reviewing a product because it will give the readers a better idea of the product they plan to buy.
Here are the ones I chose:
Ability to cleanse the hair:
Since I am someone who loves trying out different hair care products and use a lot of hair styling products very often, over time there is a lot of buildups has formed on my scalp. This has to lead to my hair feeling greasy very easily.
So this is an aspect I considered while reviewing the shampoo, as to how well it cleansed my hair and scalp.
Scalp and hair gentleness:
I always look out for products that are free from sulfates and parabens, because my scalp is sensitive and harsh chemicals are also damaging to the hair as well.
Well, this shampoo does contain sulfates, but since I wanted to try it out, I bought it and tested to see whether it was gentle on my hair and scalp or not.
This product offers to cleanse and soften. So I was looking forward to see how effective this product would be not just in cleansing my hair and scalp and making it feel soft, but also in how well it worked on my dog’s fur too.
The scent of this product is “apple”. I always look out for shampoos with mild fragrances, so this is an aspect I always consider while reviewing shampoos, as this is how my hair would smell once it dried up.
Use on colour-treated hair:
Well, this shampoo didn’t state whether it is safe to use on colour-treated hair or not, but I took a chance and tried it out. I use this parameter to test whether the shampoo faded my hair colour drastically or not.
Use on animals:
Since this shampoo is dually formulated for use on humans and on animals, I specifically included this parameter while reviewing this shampoo, so that those with pets will get a fair idea if they wish to use it on their pets as well.
My budget for shampoos is usually within $10. But I went in for this one, even though slightly expensive because it promised to serve two purposes.
Overall Review: Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo
Honestly speaking, I never ever thought that I would be writing a review of a shampoo that could be used on both humans and animals!
I couldn’t believe something like this even existed and at first I thought my eyes tricked me, but then I realized I had actually read it right and just decided to buy it.
Well, did it live up to my expectations? Yes, it did! It actually served two purposes!
How It Worked On My Hair +My Overall Product Review
So let me first talk about how the shampoo worked on me. Well, I have to say that it did a great job at cleansing my hair.
It got rid of quite a lot of the buildup from my scalp and hair (and it has been a little over a month that I have been using this shampoo).
I was apprehensive that the sulfates in the shampoo would dry out my hair, but it didn’t really damage my hair. In fact, my hair began to feel soft once I started using this shampoo. I also began to experience the growth of new hair as well.
It suited my colour-treated hair quite well too. It did not fade my hair colour drastically, but just a little and that’s something that I had expected would happen.
The smell of this shampoo is supposed to be the smell of apples. Well, while I wouldn’t say it smelled like apples, it has a mild smell that made my hair smell great once it dried.
This shampoo lathered well and left no residue on my hair, so that is something I loved!
Unfortunately, when I bought this shampoo, the conditioner wasn’t in stock at that time. So I ended up buying just the shampoo and used my old conditioner to condition my hair.
Coming to the pricing aspect, what I liked is that I didn’t have to buy a separate shampoo for bathing my dogs and I could use the same one that I used on my hair.
So even though it is slightly on the expensive side, I thought it was feasible enough as it saved me the amount I’d spend on a separate animal shampoo.
But one thing I realized only after I started using this shampoo is the fact that I could have bought it directly from the Mane ‘n Tail website for a much cheaper cost of $9.99. So maybe you guys could consider this before buying your shampoo.
How It Worked On My Dogs
Talking about how well this shampoo worked on my dogs, well, I have two dogs and I have used this shampoo on their coats just twice up until now.
Well, it worked pretty well, I must say. Their coats felt clean and smelled fresh. It actually made their coats feel softer once I used this shampoo on them.
This shampoo lathered very well when I used it on my dogs’ wet coat. So this made it super easy for me to bathe them.
