Default Best shampoo/conditioner to use?

If I keep my poodles in continental clips I like to bathe them often,
what is the best least damaging shampoo/conditioner combo I should use and how often can I bathe them?

I was bathing my female about every 3 days a while ago and her coat was still great. I was using therapet then.

Just wondering what else is out there and how often is okay.

Should I use a finishing spray do they make a huge difference? My dogs are never matted.

I love using Isle of Dogs Royal jelly. Terrific results! I have heard that they have a new shampoo called something like Stand Up that is meant to be used before showing or major scissoring because it makes the coat super hard.

Conditioners are going to be anyone's guess. I think Toys typically have much softer coats than Standards so I'm not sure my advice will help. I just started using Isle of Dogs Light Management and the jury is still out. I've gotten more matting this cycle than I have before. Previously I was using the human conditioner Art Tech Kiwi and I thought it worked great.

Most show folks bath once a week.
