I was wondering if anyone had any tips on getting clumps of hair unknotted....
The reason for why, (as my Dad likes to say)....
Diddy, the nearly 15 year old is a long haired blue point birman. Recently very ill with a double stroke and renal failure, she has grown very skinny and could not until now tolerate even a soft haired brush on her. She was never partial to having her stomach brushed before she got sick, and now it is practiacally impossible, unless you catch her in a really good moment.
Sadly she now has loads of knots of hair that are very close to the skin,mainly around the edges of her underside as I have managed to get all the ones right on her belly area. I have managed to cut quite a lot of the clumps away but there are some that I dare not cut as I am worried I will cut her skin as well.
I have a friend who helps me by holding her so that I can try and do whatever needs doing each time she is there to assist and she is down this week, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.
I did wonder if conditioner would help in teasing out the knots??
