Combing Out Again At Night after the Bath
Important Grooming Information:
I have finally realized why it is important to comb out your Hav again after bathing/drying. Knots (little tangles)! Knots you were not able to see or feel while combing out during the dry session.
I tend to dry my boys standing up, but when I comb them out at night, they are on my lap and I can see their belly hair and armpit hairs.
When I am combing after the bath day, most of the little knots I do find are on the underside near armpits and lower chest area. I use a small pair of sharp scissors to glide through the knot to break it up and then I comb though.
I also figured out by combing out your Hav every day or so will keep the tangles down to a manageable level and you also find the tangles you did not find the day before.
Another hint: The dead leaves are all over the yard and the boys are always bringing in the leaf decor into my house all the time. If I can catch the boys at the door way I take my wooden brush and flick out the leaves in the hair at the doorway before it hits the carpet. A good way to flick out the leaves is to stand your Hav on two feet while holding him upright and get that belly full of leaves.
