Introduction: Lately, a new idea has caught the attention of young people of both genders, being debated in consultation rooms, during classes, and especially on social media: is using horse shampoo for human hair wrong or not?
Material and methods: A simple questionnaire about horse shampoo and its use in humans was addressed to 85 students.
Results: Thirty-eight responders were aware of its existence, 27 have tried it and 3 were still using it as a weekly shampoo. All positive responders were young women who declared being completely satisfied by horse shampoo and none of them have reported side effects.
Conclusion: Although it has good reviews, horse shampoo is not available in human pharmacies. As dermatologists, we are still looking for an answer.
