How Do You Make A Homemade Detangler For Your Dog?

  • A Spray Bottle. I got mine at the dollar store, but you can get them at Walmart or other retailers. Get something that looks like this
  • Conditioner. Garner Fructis – Sleek & Shine Fortifying Conditioner. You can select another conditioner, but this is what works, so it’s what I am sticking with for now. It says it is designed for hard-to-straighten hair. Feel free to experiment.
  • Moroccan Oil. I stick with the Garner Fructis – Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment. This stuff really makes a difference, so make sure you use the formula as I give it to you.
  • 4 Parts Water
  • 1 Part Conditioner
  • 1 Tbsp (tablespoon) Moroccan Oil
  • As the name suggests, detangler is basically used to detangle (loosen) the hair or mat growth on the dog’s body. It is a kind of shampoo mixture that helps through the process. So, how do you decide which detangler to opt for, because there are so many options available in the market. Well, if you are spoiled for choice, yet confused, you can go for a homemade detangler. It will be effective and, more importantly, won’t harm your pet dog’s skin.

    Take a big spray bottle and add same amount of the conditioner (8 ounces in this case) in the bottle. Here, if you don’t get Aloe vera conditioner, you could mix Aloe vera gel with a commercial dog conditioner and use the same. Now, add the distilled water and mix well.

    Take the comb suitable for your dog’s fur in one hand and larger mats in other. Spray the mixture and comb simultaneously. Keep on doing this, so as to detangle the entire fur coat. Once done, again spray the detangler mixture all over the body and give your pet a nice bath. Use water to wash off the traces of shampoo and conditioner.

    I am sure you feel proud to own a smart canine at home. Yeah, you surely do! However, you can call yourself proud only when you take proper care of your dog, which includes looking after its health, food, grooming, etc. When I say dog grooming, there are so many things to take into account, and the best way to go about it, is by maintaining proper hygiene and looking after it like you would look after your baby! Maintaining hygiene includes bathing it at least once a week. So, basically what you need is a dog shampoo. And if you happen to own a dog with long fur, then you need a shampoo that acts as a detangler.
