Wow he is quite curley, Dolly is but not as much.... and i dont have any pictures that show it, seems to be when her hair gets to a certain length, but hers is more like a wave than a curl if you know what i mean.....

Tell me about it lol - I knew it'd be better to show pictures of him cos it's quite hard to describe really and the pics certainly give a clearer pic - taken with my Nikon by the way lol

Here's the attachments I got with my dryer


Now in the first pic I use the attachment on the left to blast the coat to get most of the dampness out, then I use a combination or just 1 of the other 2 for drying.

In the 2nd pic the long arm thing at the bottom - well I've never used it cos I haven't a clue lol lol
What I'd like to know is which attachment do I need to use for doing what

Nero doesn't mind being dried but Seb isn't keen at all
The long arm with the attachment - take the attachment off and use the 'hose' as a blaster to take the extra water out of the coat. On the 1st pic, use the second one as the direction nozzle to concentrate on an 'area of coat' and when you do, make sure that 'that area' is dried from the roots before moving on to another area. The 3rd nozzle is fine as a 'finisher' on a cool setting. The reason I say use the 2nd nozzle in the pic is because the 'end' is not as wide as the 3rd one - so hence, its more directional - does this make sense? The 3rd one in my personal opinion would have a wider range of drying and you need to concentrate on 'one' area at one time.

Replace the attachment showing on the 'arm' at any time as this is directional also. The second one in the pic will do just as good as this attachment.

The rule of thumb is that we all find our own way and although you are not going to show (are you ?) - we find what is best for the coats - try them and you will know at the end of it which makes the coat lay better - its all trial and error hun xxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks for the heads up

Tootsie has a wavy coat but it straightens the longer it gets. I'm presuming the weight of the length of coat weighs it down.

I've kept Tootsie as a shorty girl, but now growing her coat long. She has not been clipped for 3 months, just a trim. Her hair grows very fast, so hoping to see a mid length reached in 6 mths.

Am I being too ambitious, do you think?
