The bathroom of the Bichon Maltese
There are always doubts about dog baths, whether once a month, any shampoo is fine, whether we always use whitening shampoos or not, whether or not conditioner is needed...
There are general guidelines for bathing dogs, but each breed has a different type of hair and skin, we cannot generalize, and For our favorite breed the Maltese, you can follow these guidelines:
- Frequency Bath: You can bathe him every week, because his hair is so white it is impossible to keep it clean any longer (you can use daily cleansers to maintain it) but also his hair needs a lot of hydration to avoid knots and tangles, so a good shampoo, in addition to cleaning, will rehydrate his coat.
-Is any shampoo okay? The skin of our dogs has a PH different from that of humans, and between breeds of dogs it also varies, so no, NOT just any shampoo. In addition, for Maltese hair we need shampoos that, in addition to cleaning and whitening, rehydrate a lot and do not leave the hair stuffed.
- Is conditioner necessary? Yes, because the shampoo cleanses and moisturizes but also changes the electrical charge of the hair and makes it frizzy, and the conditioner changes the charge again and helps to restore the hair fiber, minimizing friction and frizz, which will facilitate combing and prevent knots.
-Do I always use whitening shampoo? It is not necessary, a good shampoo and daily care of the face and paw and pee areas may be enough. If its use is required, it is recommended to use it before the normal shampoo, or alternate them in each bath, since bleaches do not hydrate as much.
