Default Poodle Hair Products

I have a question.... Do you all use any products in your poodle's hair after bathing but before drying? And even after drying?

Just wondering if there's something to get the hair straighter and "firmer" (idk if that's a real thing lol)

Lola has great hair to scissor ... Rusty has super soft curls and certain areas just never blow out straight even w HV dryer.... And if Manage to get them mostly straight... Within a day or so they curl up....

The young lady who used to groom them for me could get it stick straight and it lasted quite a bit longer.... Of course she is a certified master groomer on groom team usa who apparently wins a lot of grooming competitions lol BUT STILL! I need to figure out how to do that!

My groomer recommended using "The Stuff" a leave in conditioner. Not sure if it will do what you need it to do....

I use Ice on Ice by Chris Christensen for both my Spoo and Yorkie. Not much scent to it, I like it.

Lol

I've heard of "the stuff" but haven't used it... At the grooming competition I saw they were all spritzing "thick n thicker" like crazy.... Anyone know if that's hairspray or what? I think will google it
:-)

I like CC spectrum one system (shampoo, substance bulding foaming stuff, and conditioner) for texturizing, it's awesome. Terrier Touch by Pure Paws is also good. And Thick n Thicker volumizing response protein is amazing as well. Sometimes I use all of them at once lol! For while I dry, I use CC mousse or a touch of CC gel, depending on how limp the coat is and how much lift I want. Be careful with the gel it will mat the coat if not washed out in a few days. I don't use anything while scissoring but I've heard Crown Royal #3 is good. I'm going to start experimenting with it.


As far as getting it straight, start out with the dog almost dripping wet, don't towel too much. Use a stand dryer and brush quickly and lightly while drying. That will get you the straightest coat and best texture. Some dogs do curl up faster than others, even if I get Trev stick straight he will be curly within a day or two. It's just the nature of his coat, it's very curly.

I use Ice on Ice in between Lexi being groomed on her bracelets. It will fluff them back up and they stay that way for a good while. Don't know if it would do what you want?

I'm a big fan of stazko spray, I find it more hydrating, and not just "slick" feeling like Ice on ice, which I do like too, just not as much as stazko.
