Frequently Asked Questions
QUESTION: No Lather on First Shampoo
The product is designed to lift oil and dirt from the hair/fur in the first wash. It will not lather on first wash like traditional commercially available shampoos.
On the second wash, you will notice a flatter creamy lather. This lather is designed to cleanse deeply and give sheen and remove build-up.
First time using you must do 3 shampoos in the first wash to get appropriate lather, it will remove build-up. should you have a break from Gypsy Rose pet 2-in-1 shampoo you must still do 3 shampoos in the first wash. No need to shampoo as often as you do, so try leaving it an extra day.
QUESTION: What is a “Double Action Salt Shake”
The double action salt shake is the way to apply our shampoos to your hair. It’s a double action movement, quickly up and down, that resembles the action of shaking salt onto a meal.
For small animals : always do 6 double action salt shakes over six sections of your pets body for each shampoo. For medium animals: do 8, over eight sections of body. For large: do up to 10 depending on length. No need for as creamier lather on longer midlenths and ends as the lather from roots will wash down.
QUESTION: My pets coat feels crisp when wet – do I need a conditioner?
By their very nature, Gypsy Rose pet Shampoo’s are different from commercially available pet shampoos & conditioners so this is a normal feeling.
Don’t judge the softness of your pets hair until it is fully dry, the cleansing action of the unique shampoo will make the hair feel crispy when wet and it pH balances as it drys, leaving it soft. If when dry it feels like it needs softening then you will need our appropriate type pet multi-use Conditioner. No matter what type of shampoo you are using you can mix and match- Rosemary for slightly dry , Lavender for extremely dry and tangled.
We suggest that you always use a wide tooth comb, to remove the tangled ends first working up from ends to the roots. This will avoid creating split ends.
The Gypsy Rose Multi-Use Pet Conditioners are a styling aid for use on wet or dry hair/fur , but is also a hair, fur and skin treatment of which you can saturate the whole body for a deep conditioning. Ideal to do a full treatment once a month whether you need it as a Leave-In Conditioner with our pet shampoo or not.
QUESTION: Why is it 100% bio-degradable but not certified organic
The Gypsy Rose pet range is proven 100% bio-degradable (A/S 4351.5) meaning it breaks down in the earth 100%. Which is what certified A organic usually means, but unfortuanately certified organic hair and skin products have a loophole of 5-15% whereby they are allowed to use this amount of uncertified organic ingredients in their formulas ie. emulsifiers etc . We choose to not be associated with this type of certification and pride ourselfs in our clean 100% bio-degradable ingredients list to market our fermented products.
