A diet with some healthy fats can help the coat, I believe (like a little olive oil on bread once in a while), but shampoo... I wouldn't use human conditioner on a rat because of what they may ingest, I'd wonder the same about the shampoo, personally.

I'm not sure if there fur is usually still soft at 7-8mos. but our ratties are as soft as kittens. They get olive and bread once a month atleast, and we also use kitty wipes on them every so often if they need it... the wipes seem to make them softer and they smell so good afterwards (not that they smell bad, their natural smell is almost sweet)
