As some of you know I'm trying to grow Princess's hair. I've noticed her facial hair(just around her mouth) is more damaged than the rest of her hair and doesn't seem to be growing as fast as the rest of her body.
So my question is do you think I should trim her damaged facial hair or should I just let it grow???

I think you will always see this around their mouth area due to there eating playing and rooting around with there face. Micro trimming it could help but I think a good conditioner would help a whole lot to. But I don't keep mine in full coat maybe somebody else that is in the show part of it can give better advice I would want to learn more about it myself to. Princess is beautiful I see nothing wrong with her coat myself.

I wonder if Chris Stix would help to lighten the hair and Ice on Ice to act as a protective covering for future stains. I have not tried these yet, but I do have them ordered from Chris Christensen and they should arrive soon.

I've noticed with Paris' hair around her mouth, that it is not as soft as the rest of the hair. Is your's like that?

I know they band the face furnishings in show dogs. You could try that.

I do band her face now when she eats. But her hair is already damaged from playing and chewing etc. She also likes to lick around her mouth a lot so her hair is always in her mouth. Even if I remove them she'll put them back in her mouth again. -_-

What do you use to wash her face?

I would band it all the time.

I use petsilk shampoo every 10 days and I just wash her face with water every morning. She doesn't really like bands on her face. I guess she just has to get used to it.

Aww, thank you K/C's mom. It's really hard to tell looking at the pic. Her hair is much longer now (it's about 6 inches now) It just gets harder and harder to groom her. -_-

What do you recommend using to wash face daily? Also, pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by banding her face? Belle's hair is growing out, it's about 4 1/2 inches now and I want it to look good. Thanks! ~ Jackie

I really like this product.

http://www.purepaws.net/product.asp?intPro...atured=Y&page=1

We use it on dogs faces when they have been bleached and are very dry. You also have to be careful when banding the mouth. If a dog isnt used to it they can rub on it and cause more breakage. There are these bowls I use that are Ceramic and tey have a small whole that they drink out of so their hair gets pushed back and doesnt get so wet. They say Ring Master on them but I cant find them anywhere. Maybe someone knows what I'm talking about and can direct you better.

I've been looking for bowls like that made with stainless steel but I can't find any. Mee told me about it before but she said she can only find the one made with Ceramic. Isn't stainless steel better than ceramic???

BTW, thank you for the link!

We use both Ceramic and Stainless at work. I like both of them because they are easy to clean. I guess its up to you.

Bayou Ceramics has those ceramic water hole bowls. I love mine! They are all hand made to order so they take about a month to get, but well worth it.

I believe they are about $17 each.

JMM gave me the ordering information. Maybe she can post it here or I can try to find Sheila's email if anyone wants to pm me.

I use EZ-groom and Panteen cond. I have spent lots of money on grooming stuff but I always fall back to these two. I just kind of treat them Like it was my own hair, I have naturally wavey curly hair and I have to use a very good condition or I have a hard time brushing it out. So I have used human cond. on my malts for quite some time. Somebody said correct me if I am wrong here that maltese coat is like human hair. I can't remember where I heard that at or how much trueth there was to it though. Hopefully somebody on here knows more trueth about this.

What do you call Natural Shampoo I am not sure what that is. But I do know what ever you are using your baby is beautiful. and the coat on that baby is just perfect. How often do you have to brush him or her to keep there coat like that.
