Mat breaker is what saved Rosey's (limited) fringe more times than I'd like to admit.

This is the other stuff that was recommended to me, but I couldn't find it. What's a mat breaker?

It's a comb, with curved, sharp edges, that cuts away at the mats while you comb. Rather than cutting off all the hair.

I'm going to third or fourth Cowboy Magic detangler. That's what we use on dogs at work and I've used it numerous times on Bamm when he gets a little matted. I also use cowboy magic shampoo and conditioner on Bamm. Just love that stuff all around and it makes him super soft.

I'm definitely not a pro about them, but this is the one I have. It worked fine for Rosey? (Part BC)

If I could find mine, I'd just ship it to you since I have no use for it, but I have no clue where it went!

So far no good. I only have one comb and it's not working well trying to untangle things. I have half a mind to just cut the fringe off.

You need a slicker brush and some.Stuff or Solution or Cowboy Magic. I use all 3. You also need a mat splitter.
