A brief demo of my typical bathing method on non-symptomatic skin and coat, and a simplified explanation of the role of water in the bathing process.
** Always follow your bathing with a conditioner to replace sebum removed by your cleanser. **
Stick to a separate two step process- combining shampoo & conditioner together cancels out the full ability of either product.
-Much generalized itching for dogs is simply lack of adequate skin moisture and dead coat removal.
~Thanks to Mikah for being patient while I squawked on & on. 😣 Next time I will wait to put the dog in the tub before I start recording so they don’t have to wait. 😕
Reminder NOT to apply a harsh shampoo (clarifying, or whitening) to dry coat as it can be a little too overly stripping and the water will act as a buffer.
For most containing shampoos including protein shampoos, dry coat application is beneficial.
Whitening shampoos applied to dry coat, depending on formulation (is it an optical brightener or true stain lifter?) can deposit blueing agents into the hair cortex resulting in major staining.
