For the first time, fillies on this side of the Atlantic will be able to moisturise their manes with a cult beauty product that has its roots in the stables.

Mane ‘n Tail shampoo, which Jennifer Aniston swears by to condition her glossy tresses, is now on sale in Liberty, the London department store.

Originally formulated for show horses on founder Devon Katzev’s yard in New Jersey, it proved so good at smoothing wiry horsehair that clients began using it.

And so the human version of Mane ‘n Tail was born.

Maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s Neighbelline.
