When you have a multiday show do you wash the dog every day? if not how does one "break down" the topknot?

I actually havent shown anyone except Gotti more than one day in a row, and to break down the topknot I just sprayed with diluted detangler, and banded them back up til I got home

On Gotti- Who I showed in a 5 day cluster I just brushed the spray out- but that is when I was new(er) to this and didnt know half of what I know now

The proper thing is to wash it out everyday (between shows). If it is a simple Saturday and Sunday show, I use Plush Puppy OMG as it literally removes all traces of hairspray. It is expensive, but totally worth it!!!

Question for those of you that have topknots :biggrin:.

Vinnie is getting a lot more hair on his head and I have put him up in puppy horns a couple times and he is really good for it. For everyday wear, do you use any products(thinking human gel or mousse type product)? It's difficult to get all that hair parted and up and still look decent!!!
