Most people have heard of dry shampoo before, but not everyone knows that dogs can use dry shampoo too. Just as our hair gets greasy quickly, so does dog hair, especially since they have more of it.
As beneficial as dry shampoo is for humans, it's also amazing for dogs!
Besides keeping your dog clean, dry shampoo for dogs comes with many other benefits.
There are quite a few different dry shampoos for dogs on the market. Each dry shampoo has different ingredients and caters to a separate need. Here are a few of them!
There are dog dry shampoos for dry skin. These help balance the skin with healthy moisture without stripping the fur of too much oil. It only takes what’s unnecessary.
There are also dog dry shampoos that primarily focus on deodorizing. This is the type of dry shampoo you want to buy for a dog that gets smelly pretty fast. This sort of dry shampoo will help your pup smell super fresh without a complicated water wash.
Some dry shampoos are specifically designed for sensitive dogs or dogs with allergies. These dry shampoos are amazing choices because they typically utilize organic ingredients that are gentle on the dog’s skin and fur.
There are also DIY dry shampoo recipes available that can be used on dogs. For a DIY dry shampoo, you can mix ½ cup of cornstarch, ½ cup of baking soda, and 3-5 drops of lavender oil. Sprinkle this powder recipe all over the dog's fur and comb it through. The powder will soak up excess oil and dirt while the oil will give your dog a nice clean scent!
