Red face Grooming tools ?

Ok....Rico is now 8 months old...I decided I need the CC combs and brush, after reading Hav lovers input on this forum ! Sounds like the 05 buttercomb and little face comb is what everyone loves...as for the pin brush...what is the big difference in deciding between the (?)5 inch lil wonderbrush and the wood pin brush, besides size...are the wood pins really necessary? Rico will be mostly in a shorter puppy clip (of course shaggy on top!) appreciate any input and thanks, Karen and Rico

I have more combs and brushes for the "kids" than I do for myself. I do have the Buttercombs-both the big one and small one-have a small regular brush and a slicker but I don't use the slicker on any part of the body but the face area. I do have the wood pin brush and Love it-it's my go to brush for grooming. I also bought a comb with rotating teeth-it's been a stand by for as long as I have had Paige. I always use a dematting spray or CC detangler spray when I groom.

I definitely recommend the CC #5 buttercomb. As for the face, I just use a flea comb after wetting Ceylon's face down to get the eye boogers out (they come out really easily after being wet for a minute or two, at least with a flea comb) and the finer edge of the #5 for the rest of his face.

I've never tried the wood pin brush. I gave up on the metal pin brush that I bought from CC as it hurts Cey too much, and doesn't do anything really to help get him brushed out. (It works great on my hair however, so it wasn't a total waste of money!) Then again, Cey is in full coat - a good (wood pin?) brush would probably be a great help for a shorter coat .

The other thing I bought from CC that I really liked was the double action spray trigger bottle, when I was using watered-down conditioner during his grooming sessions. Lately I've just been using corn starch, but I may try the conditioner-spray route again as his hair has gotten much easier to care for lately

Quincy doesn't like the regular metal pin brush, so I got the wood pin brush after reading about it here. It's like night and day. I ran the metal one on my arm and I figure if it doesn't feel so great on my skin, it won't feel so great on his. I'm planning on buying a couple extra "just in case."
I have the face/feet comb - nice size and works really well. I also have two sizes of butter combs. One is the five and I think the other might be zero? Not sure about the second one. IMO, you can't go wrong with CC's grooming tools

Try a good-CC wood pin brush on Cey-you may find you really do like it. Miss Paige is in Full Coat and I use the wooden pin after I comb her out-it catches the tangles the comb might have missed. I will try and add a picture of Paige so you can see the coat-if I can't I will change my Avitar picture. Could not load a picture of Paige so I did change my Avitar so you could see her coat.

Thanks Pat! I will try it then. -Just what I need, an excuse to spend more money on CC products

Paige is beautiful! I can't wait for Cey's hair to get that long!

I didn't like the wood pin brush, but loved the CC pin brush and butter combs. I sent Lauren the wood one in a care package, she may like it. A while ago I bought the greyhound pin brush and really liked it better than the CC and is holding up better. Earlier this month at a show, bought the greyhound fine/medium comb and like it better than the buttercomb too. The vendor did say there are some fake ones out there, even saying "authentic" but to make sure the comb/brush was made in England to get theirs.

I have a CC wood pin brush, but rarely use it.
My CC #05 buttercomb is my workhorse... and a small cheap flea/face comb for eye boogers and muzzle...

Two weeks ago I bought CC Gold Series pin brush (20 mm pins) and I really love it. It is kind of gentler to the coat and skin than regular CC pin brush and it is awesome for detecting and getting out tangles. I also use wood pin brush, 005 buttercomb and Madan face comb (very good, small and really inexpensive. Before bath I use small soft slicker only on feet.

I love the wooden pin brush. It's great for quickly getting debris out of the fur after a walk. For a more thorough comb out, I use the buttercomb and face combs and they're incredible. I wish I knew about them years ago. They seemed expensive at first but worth every penny.
