Factor Zero – Cleans and Clarifies WINTER WHITE with (1+2) + 3 = SNOW ARTIC ICEY WHITE


We LOVE playing around with shampoos to try and find the perfect formula to get them

  • SOFT
  • SILKY
  • STRAIGHT
  • MAT Resistant
  • WINTER WHITE

EVERY maltese needs a different formula for this optimal ALIGNMENT of COAT PERFECTION!
Our maltese are PET Maltese and thus our main goals are simply SILKY, STRAIGHT and MAT FREE.     Dolce recently celebrated a birthday, and so I gave her our special formulation to get her even WHITER then she already is.

It was a SIMPLE as  1-2-3

First ~~~ We brushed out her coat before bathing to remove any unwanted mats

Next ~~~ We Clarified her coat with Pure Paws FACTOR ZERO = which happens to be a form of Enzymatic Whitener

Factor Zero -- Great for getting hair back to it's natural state and remove previous products from hair

WHITE MAGIC – never used alone for Maltese. A LITTLE goes A LONG way, only add a WHISPER amount and mix with the MAIN Shampoo

QUOTE FROM THE PURE PAWS DEVELOPMENT TEAM:

There has been a lot of questions about how whitening products work and if the White Magic dries out coat, Here is a slide that explains briefly what Pure Paws uses to make the White Magic. I can guarantee you that this product will not dry out any coat as long as you follow with a conditioner like with any normal shampoo.

1 TINY WHISPER SPOON of WHITE MAGIC + 2 HEAPING SPOONS of Amplify Shampoo == DILUTED IN WARM WATER 1:8 or 1:10 Ratio

We do not use bleaches or peroxides to create a whiter coat. Our goal is to take care of the skin and coat and not damage the coat to get the results we are looking for. There are other ways to make a coat look whiter like:

1. Optical Brightners (Brightening Shampoo – No Rinse)
2. Enzymes (Factor 0 and BioEnzymatic Spray)
3. Pigments and Bluing agent (White Magic)

They all work differently and will give different result. The most important thing is that NONE of these products will dry out or damage a coat like bleaching agents or peroxides.

 

Here is a very INFORMATIVE PICTORAL Explanation from Pure Paws, which strives to educate.

Pure Paws Reconstruction Shampoo and Condition are our GO TO Shampoos === has been for years now === Only occasionally do I add a WHISPER of WHITE MAGIC

Our Maltese Obsession friends that have followed up from the beginning know that our GO TO GROOMING SHAMPOO is the Pure Paws Reconstruction LINE (PURPLE BOTTLES) — the reason this is our GTGS is that we find that our dogs mat very little or not at all using the Reconstructing Line.

We do however augment this formula to add shine or to additionally bulk up the hair, depending on the needs and style we are shooting for.    There are many many different mixtures of Pure Paws shampoos that we use to achieve the style and look that we are trying to achieve, whether it be for our dogs or for a clients.    The owner of PURE PAWS, calls it the MIXOLOGY of PURE PAWS.

I LOVE going to my Pure Paws product bar and playing mad chemist and making my own MAGIC formations ~~~ Mooowahahaha ^_^

DSC_8106Oct 27, 2014wpsmallWe will take more about the uses of the AMPLIFY line from PURE PAWS in a future blog post, but we love it as our GT for Korean style cuts…..more later

ANOTHER OPTION for WINTER WHITE would be to use the Reconstruction Shampoo and Conditioner:

(1 + 2) + 3 = (Spoon of Winter Magic + 2 Spoons of Reconstruction Shampoo) + 3 Spoons of Reconstruction Shampoo) = WINTER WHITE

OPTIONS ~~~ If the WHITE MAGIC is a scary product to use due to it’s very intense purple/violet pigment ~~~ try mixing in a SPRINKLE of the PP Star Line Brightening Shampoo instead.    Mix just a tiny spoon with your normal shampoo and it will also enhance the WHITE in your Maltese coat.   Condition, Condition, Condition the coat afterwards to ensure optimal results.

Cosette’s NEW Korean Styling ~~ Sprinkle of Seoul ~ Korean Cut

Cosette ~ Cheerful & CaringHappy 5th Birthday to my 1st Pet Maltese Cosette.    Cosette arrived to us and she has FOREVER changed our lives.

Cosette ~ my first maltese!
Cosette ~ my first maltese!

Cosette is who has inspired us to grow MALTESE OBSESSION.    Cosette came to us via her AKC Breeder, who had her hand delivered and escorted to us by airplane ride.   Cosette was so sweet and smart from the minute we held her in our hands.   She was FULLY POTTY trained within the first MONTH.    Cosette since then has enjoyed sleeping right next to my rib cage each night in our bed.

Cosette as a puppy NEVER had any eye staining
Cosette as a puppy NEVER had any eye staining

Cosette can play fetch with a tiny cat ball 24 hours a day if we would engage with her.   We stock up on these tiny balls each Christmas as we can never find them any other time of year.

Cosette is ALWAYS Cheerful and CARING!    WE LOVE HER!

Cosette has always been in a creative AMERICAN style cut her whole life, but we decided to give her a fresh new look for her 5th Birthday.

We slowly transitioned her to a KOREAN STYLE GROOM.

Cosette ~ Cheerful & Caring
Cosette ~ Cheerful & Caring

The reason we transitioned her Korean style cut, is because we wanted to take care to NOT cause unnecessary staining by having the short muzzle hairs poke her in the eyes.

NONE of the hairs ON TOP OF HER NOSE NOR IN BETWEEN HER EYES have been cut in this particular Korean cut.    Cosette’s style of Korean cut is VERY different from Tweety’s.

Cosette has some nerves that get her stressed some on the grooming table and other uncomfortable places.   She tends to show signs of stress sometimes when she is nervous.    Cosette typically dances all over the grooming table as she really finds it nerve wracking to be off the floor.   She prefers not even to be held unless she is able to sit on your lap on the couch.

We therefore try to break up her grooming sessions into multiple MINI grooming sessions.    If you have a nervous dog, or one that dislikes the grooming process, we recommend splitting up your grooming routine into little MINI SPA Sessions ^_^

We hope you enjoy the videos where we show you how we created Cosette’s new Sprinkle of SEOUL with a Dash of California ~~ SeoulCAL look.

Korean Style Cut ~~ NO Cutting Hairs on top of nose NOR in between eyes

WARNING ~~~ Please do not try to use SHEARS, CLIPPERS OR SCISSORS  around the NECK, EYES OR FACE if you are not experienced in using these sharp grooming tools.  We also recommend you not use the same tools around your DOGS FEET, unless you have been properly taught SAFETY technique on how to use them.      ~~~~~~ KOREAN style cuts involve very fine detail work around the FACE and FEET and SAFETY should be a PRIORITY.
