Dogs with long hair often get tangles even with regular brushing, but having a hair detangler helps them brush out the hair without having to cut any of it off. A natural hair detangler made at home with some inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients helps during brushing time to smooth out the hair and make it soft. A natural hair detangler, made with natural ingredients, is safe to use on pet and human hair.
