Obviously, it does not need extensive hair care. Aside from the amount of hairs on each type of dog, another difference between a Hairless and a Powderpuff is that the Hairless has a single coat, while the Powderpuff has a thick double coat. Colors of their coat range from pale flesh to black. Some Hairless Cresteds even lack teeth.
