How to Harvest Horse Hair

1

Wash the tail

If possible wash the tail.

Use a specific horsehair shampoo to wash the tail

2

No Sprays

Please do not spray tail conditioner or silicon products onto tail hairs

Conditioning sprays make the hair slippery and more difficult to use and form into a tight rosette.

3

Cut a piece of tail

As long as possible.

Just up from the bottom of the dock and slightly to the side, cut a section of tail hair about two fingers in thickness.

4

Package Hair

Place hair into an envelope

Gently wrap the hair and put it into an envelope. Don’t be tempted to plait it.
