Shampoos for white coats

Hey all,

I was looking at the shampoos made to whiten white hair and was wondering, what happens to the dark/colored areas when you use it? Does it make those areas look dull? Just curious. Thinking about changing what I use on Trooper.

Thanks!

No is just brightens up all over. I use Shimmering Lights made for us white headed ladies. Most beauty salons sell it and Fantastic Sams. Now the hold family uses it. Finally got the DH to use it and it really whitened up his hair and the darker gray is just fine.

I usually use Biogroom Superwhite on Kodi, sometimes Chris Christensen White on White. Both work well, Biogroom is a lot less expensive. As Lucile said, they work well to brighten up the white, and do no harm to his black head and the black spot on his back. They are still glossy and black, and I never use any other kind of shampoo!

I actually use baby shampoo about every other time. Sometimes she is not been out and turned yellowish. Don't have any idea what shimmering lights costs as opposed to what Krandall uses.

So what kind of conditioners do you use with these shampoos? I realize that it pretty much depends on the coat, I'm just curious what you guys use just so I have a place to start looking.

Hey Angie!! I also use the Biogroom superwhite, I know Tillie's 'color' looks white, BUT her apricot is really starting to get deeper!! I'm sure you'll be able to see it when you come up!
As for conditioner I use human Palmers Deep treatment Coconut conditioner, it comes in little packets, I'll give you one to try out!! One packet usually last about 3 baths for Tillie. Although now that shes cut shorter I may be able to squeeze 4 baths out of it!

It's so interesting how different products work so differently from hav to hav!

Good stuff to know. I've wondered the same thing as well since Brody has a lot of black on him too so I was always hesitant to buy shampoo for white.

I use Biogroom Silk. It's inexpensive, smells good and does a great job on Kodi's coat. But you are right, it's all over the map. different people find that different products are best based on their dog's coat.

I use a bunch of different ones, snowey coat, Isle of Dogs, Plush Puppy, shimmer lights and one for horses. The #1 All systems one has bleach and will bleach the color out of dark areas. I do my hair twice a week with the shimmer lights. With the horse one, you need to condition well and leave it on for about 5 minutes before rinsing. I like the Pure Paws silk conditioner and put it on straight.

I've used CC and Biogroom, but stayed with Biogroom. I thought CC stripped her coat of moisture. I second what Karen says about Biogroom. And I am really liking Coat Handler conditioner, a recent change. I think it keeps her from matting. She's been much easily to brush out in between weekly baths.
