Will coconut oil detangle dog hair?
Oil makes the hair smoother and softer, making the unmatting process a bit easier. To use coconut oil to unmat fur, warm some coconut oil to a liquid (but not hot!) state and gently massage it into your dog’s fur and skin. Use your fingers to try and loosen or remove mats while you massage the oil into your dog’s fur.
