How to Use ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray: A Step-by-Step Guide
ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray is a specialized product designed to assist with braiding and create beautiful, long-lasting braids for your horse's mane and tail. Follow this step-by-step guide to learn how to effectively use ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray for professional-looking results.
Step 1: Preparation
Before you begin, gather all the necessary supplies. You will need a comb or brush, ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray, a spray bottle with water, and small elastics or braiding thread. Ensure your horse's mane and tail are clean and free of tangles.
Step 2: Shake the Bottle
Shake the bottle of ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray well to ensure the ingredients are properly mixed.
Step 3: Spray the Mane and Tail
Spray a generous amount of ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray onto the mane and tail, focusing on the areas you will be braiding. This will help to tame flyaways, provide grip, and make the hair more manageable.
Step 4: Comb or Brush the Hair
Using a comb or brush, gently comb or brush through the mane and tail to ensure the product is evenly distributed and any knots or tangles are removed. This will make it easier to create smooth and neat braids.
Step 5: Divide the Hair
Divide the hair into sections of equal size, depending on the desired braid style. Use your fingers or a comb to create clean and even partings. Secure the sections with small elastics or braiding thread.
Step 6: Start Braiding
Begin braiding each section of hair, ensuring the braids are tight and uniform. Use the ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray as needed to keep the hair in place and prevent slippage.
Step 7: Spray Water as Needed
If the hair starts to dry out or become difficult to manage, use the spray bottle filled with water to lightly mist the hair. This will reactivate the ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray and make the hair more pliable.
Step 8: Secure the Braids
Once all the braids are completed, secure them with small elastics or braiding thread at the ends. Make sure the braids are snug but not too tight, allowing for natural movement.
Step 9: Apply Finishing Spray
To further enhance the longevity of the braids and add a polished look, apply a light mist of a finishing spray or ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray over the braids. This will help to hold the shape and prevent frizz.
Step 10: Maintain and Remove Braids
To maintain the braids, lightly mist them with ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray as needed and touch up any loose hairs. When it's time to remove the braids, carefully remove the elastics or braiding thread and gently comb out the braids.
By following this step-by-step guide, you can effectively use ShowBarn Secret® Braiding Spray to create beautiful and long-lasting braids for your horse's mane and tail. Enjoy the professional results and showcase your equine companion in style.
