Home Remedies For Dull Coat
1. Essential Oils:
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to prevent skin issues. Take a little coconut oil in your palms and rub it to warm it and massage your pet’s fur smoothly or lightly brush the fur. Coconut oil lotions can also relieve skin inflammation and dry skin. Other essential oils that can be used for dry skin are Cedarwood, Jojoba, Rose, Carrot seed, Lavender, and olive oil.
Honey and olive oil: Take some honey in your palm and massage it in the damp fur, let it moisturize the fur for up to 15 minutes, then wash with lukewarm water. When you add a little bit of olive oil before applying honey, it will relax the fur for easier application of honey. There is nothing to worry about even if your dog licks a bit of the honey.
Olive oil + Margarine: Use olive oil while preparing food for dogs or when you bathe the dogs, place a small amount of margarine. In a few weeks, a huge difference in your dog's fur can be noticed: there will be extra shine and softness. Keep in mind the quantities and you may use olive oil twice a week and that is enough.
2. Cornmeal Or Cornstarch:
Actually, cornstarch or cornmeal is an economical way to remove dirt and oil from your dog’s paws and fur. Cornstarch and Cornmeal will bond with the dirt, oil, and/or grease and can then be brushed or combed from your dog’s coat. This treatment can be used as often as required and causes no harm to your dog (except if they are corn allergic).
Take an empty salt or pepper shaker and pour 1 tablespoon of cornstarch/cornmeal, shake well and spray onto a dry/dull coat. After 15 minutes, use a comb or brush to fully comb out cornstarch/cornmeal from your dog’s coat. Most waterless dog shampoo is usually made from a base of this ingredient.
