When I first saw Secret Weapon detangling and conditioning products being advertised I have to admit that I was sceptical... how could something be that good?
At the time, Elsa's adult coat was really starting to grow and brushing her was a nightmare...no sooner had I combed one matt out and another seemed to magically form! I was desperate and willing to try anything, and I did; I went through countless bottles of detangling sprays from pet shops, tried various different brushes and combs, and spent hours online looking for advice...
Then I stumbled across Secret Weapon and it was a real turning-point in the ongoing battle with Elsa's fur!
Here are my favourite products from the Secret Weapon range:
Secret Weapon Concentrate
Fortified with natural oils, proteins and vitamins, this concentrated liquid can be added to any shampoo, or diluted to be used as a spray. A little goes a long way. As soon as I started using it I found that Elsa's coat dried faster, felt softer and smelled amazing!
Elsa's fur retains a much silkier texture between baths which means that less matts form. If I do find any hiding in hard to reach places like behind her ears, a quick spritz with a diluted solution really helps and makes combing them out much easier.
Foam n Away - Foaming Facial Scrub
Elsa does suffer from tear staining under her eyes and her beard is generally quite grubby after she has been eating and drinking, so I decided to try this product that is specifically formulated for 'mucky muzzles'. I gently rub it into the stained fur under Elsa's eyes and through her beard then leave it on for about 5 minutes before washing it off in the bath.
It really softens and cleans her beard and I've noticed that it does help with the tear staining.
Although I make a lot of Elsa's bows myself, I couldn't resist these butterfly shaped ones when I saw them on the Secret Weapon website. They are absolutely gorgeous and so colourful!
You can buy them in mixed bags of 10, 20, 30, 50 or 100 bows and they also sell floral collar bows and bow-tie collars as well as adorable dog 'Ties'.
It's great to see that the Secret Weapon range is growing to include more and more products... They also sell shampoos, brushes, scissors, detangling sprays and nose & paw butter too.
If I had to choose just one grooming product that we couldn't live without, it would have to be Secret Weapon Concentrate!
Bathing and brushing Elsa is so much easier when I use Secret Weapon on her. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a natural, 'all-in-one' solution to dealing with matts and any coat types that need some extra TLC to keep them in good condition.
