No no no it is not the actual tail of a horse. As a devout vegetarian I am against any animal byproducts! Horsetail is a non-flowering fern like plant that grows wild throughout the northern hemisphere. You don’t have to scour the earth for it you can simply find it at your local natural food store. So what is the deal with horsetail? If applied topically on hair it is known to help strengthen and restore shine in your hair. Horsetail adds silica to the hair which provides naturally the boost your hair needs. A silica deficiency is one of the causes of hair loss! Everyone on board?
