Try Something New in 2022
A new year means lots of new opportunities! Why don’t you step outside of your comfort zone and try out some new products in your dog grooming salon this year? In this blog, we will tell youall aboutour favourite products and explain why these are unique and worth a try!
iGroom Silicone Free 3-1 Spray
Get three amazing benefits in one bottle! The iGroom Silicone Free 3-1 spray detangles, conditions, AND softens! The great thing about this product is it is non-tacky and nongreasy, so it won’t build up any residue. It can be used continually, and it is very versatile. You can use it as a finishing spray, detangling spray, or conditioning maintenance spray. You’re probably wondering what the smell is like. Well, it has a fantastic fresh scent of evergreen! This product is available in 227ml, 1.8L and 3.8L bottles.
Our brand ambassador Kayla Harrison says: “Usually I have to use 3 different products whilst drying a dog but this is a game-changer in the respect that it detangles, softens AND conditions all in one. When I used this on my sister’s bichon it helped me remove tangles from her legs with ease during the drying process, her coat felt super soft but not too soft to scissor, it was still thick and bouncy. I could tell the iGroom products had left the coat healthy and light with no sticky residue or “heavy” feel to the coat. There is no silicone in this product so can be used in between grooming sessions as well, without creating build-up on the coat.”
iGroom Charcoal & Keratin Shampoo
This shampoo is a great all-rounder. It has been specially formulated for optimal cleansing without irritation. It was scientifically created for dog & cat skin. As the name states, this shampoo contains two main ingredients: charcoal and keratin. Bamboo charcoal helps by absorbing minerals, toxins, and other harmful substances. The unique keratin complex adds moisture and extra conditioning to the coat. An extra benefit of this shampoo is that it is naturally inspired and environmentally sustainable so you can use it knowing you are doing your bit for the planet. This shampoo contains vitamins for body and thickness whilst repairing damage and enhancing volume! It is available in a 475ml and 3.8L bottle.
iGroom Charcoal + Keratin Conditioner
This conditioner paired with the Charcoal & Keratin Shampoo mentioned above is a match made in heaven. It is an unmatched pet conditioner that helps to create a balance of rich body and a weightless feel. This conditioner, along with the shampoo contains the same ingredients of hydrolysed keratin and pH balanced bamboo charcoal. This conditioner contains vegetable proteins and amino acids, and it helps to provide manageability. For maximum results, this conditioner should be used without dilution, but it can be diluted at a rate of 8:1. This is also available in 475ml and 3.8L bottles.
Kayla says: “I recently got the pleasure of using the iGroom Charcoal + Keratin shampoo and conditioner on my sister’s bichon and I will definitely be using it again! This vegan product not only smells amazing but left Kali’s coat springy, clean and easy to scissor. The conditioner helped remove tangles in her coat and I’m certain the charcoal helped whiten her coat as she was GLEAMING after the bath. The charcoal in the product detoxifies the skin and coat whilst the keratin and added vitamins repair any damage leaving the hair thick and healthy. I didn’t notice any residue and the conditioner didn’t leave the coat as heavy as some can. I also noticed Kali didn’t take long to dry after using this shampoo and conditioner. This is certainly on my 'order more' list.”

All the way from the USA, Jelly Pet Grooming Loops really will give you a unique experience with their range of great benefits. Here are 5 reasons why we think you should give Jelly Pet a try in 2022:
- STRONG, DURABLE & PLIABLE – these grooming loops are stronger than leather! They are made from high-quality BioThane which is known to be more flexible and durable.
- REDUCE BACTERIA & MOULD BUILD-UP – Unlike Nylon Grooming Loops, the Jelly Pet Grooming Loops are waterproof and incredibly easy to clean which is a big help in your grooming salon. These are fantastic for working with multiple dogs in one day!
- FITS MOST GROOMING BATHS & TABLES – these loops are suitable for all breed sizes. Simply loop your dog, slide adjustment and clip onto the bath or table.
- SAVES TIME: As these loops are waterproof, you can go from bathing, straight to the grooming table without having to change loops. You won’t need to continually wipe down your loop between bathing and drying. Win-win!

Kayla says: “I want to replace all my material neck-straps with these strong and easy to clean neck-straps. Made from BioThane, these are strong, durable, easy to clean and reduce bacteria and mould build-up. Even the dreaded covid can’t live on BioThane so it makes an amazing safety addition to any salon at the moment. They are easy to clean and disinfect between dogs and I love the fact you don’t have to keep changing the neck strap between bathing, drying and grooming as they are waterproof, so just wipe them down (or blast them) and you are good to go.”
Have your heard about our brand-new range of DezynaDog Aureus scissors? If not, where have you been? DezynaDog launched the Aureus range in November and groomers are loving them! The DezynaDog Aureus Scissor range is perfect for groomers who require a sharp, effortless cut. Developed from high-quality Chinese VG10 Stainless Steel. These scissors retain a perfect sharpness, allowing groomers to achieve golden grooms for longer. Crafted with a convex edge for a smooth cut from every angle leaving a perfect finish on every groom.
- Chinese VG10 Stainless Steel retains sharpness
- Hardness rating: 62-63 Degree

Available in straight, curved, thinner, and chunker models as well as lefty options, this range also includes the new popular Curved Chunker style which you will absolutely love. We could talk about these scissors for days but if you’d like any more info, our Behind The Design video with our Brand Developer, Nakina is perfect!
Kayla says: “These scissors are a firm favourite for me, alongside the Groom Professional Luminosa range, in particular the curved chunkers. I loved the 6.5” curved chunkers so much that we bought all of our team a pair for Christmas! They are now used daily in the salon between us, and we love them. The convex edge finish means they are particularly good for leaving a soft, smooth and professional finish on tricky areas such as around the faces and we also find them irreplaceable for those tap-dancing dogs as the chunkers leave a bit of room for error when it comes to those fidgety dogs. They are perfect for those just beginning their grooming career as well as those more experienced groomers looking for that something they’ve been missing.”
