Default Red Poodle Shampoo

I read somewhere that someone was using Pantene Red Expressions on their red standard poodles, so I just bought some (it was on a really good sale!)
Has anyone tried this? Is it a really bad idea? I'm second guessing myself now

I've tried them all!!! I found the best off-the-shelf is Burnished Bronze shampoo. Actually, I've made my own that is better then anything on the market, it's natural and is more in-line to the REAL red color and not some pinky red additives. I plan to pitch it to a grooming company.

Maybe I'm a "believe everything I read" kinda gal, but I thought I heard you weren't supposed to use human shampoo on dogs as the PH is different and it could cause problems with the dog's skin... Am I all wet??

I know that Chris Christiansen has red on red shampoo but it's waaaaay more expensive than Pantene (16 oz is $17!!)

I'll be watching this thread with interest!!

I paid 3.49 ea for the shampoo and conditioner ... reg price is 8.49 according to the store I was shopping at.

I was actually told by a groomer to use Pantene products, or anything that has silicone in it! Who knows if that's good advice or not, thats why I thought I'd ask here...

I think with some it might be the case but not with all. Just look at ingredients and you will see that many of these dog shampoos have same ingredients as human ones. I read PH is nothing to be concerned with.

I agree Kpoos ! I love the burnished bronze I have used it for years, especially for the puppies as it is very gentle and no tears... But my all time favorite for the setters was Therma Silk smelled great and worked wonders. I love the human shampoos.. I tried the Pantene as well...Right now I am using the Herbal Esssence !

I have the chris stuff u need to mix it because the red is to brown i think ? Let me look at mine when I get home. I think my sister and I mixed the black with the red and it works really well. the only down size to this stuff is, it takes out the natural white shine on a hair shaft ( I hope that makes sense)

I have the Red on Red, Black on Black and Gold on Gold. They really dull the coat and the red on red is to PINK even with mixing it in with the black and gold as recommended.

Heather, PM me with your address and I'll send you a small bottle to try. I think you'll really like it!
