  Things to note about dolls hair.


Dolls Hair


Restoring a doll’s hair to look new again depends on the material of the doll’s hair and the extent of damage or wear. Here are some general tips that might help:

Brushing: Start by gently brushing the doll’s hair to remove any tangles or knots. Use a doll hairbrush or a soft-bristled brush suitable for the hair material.

Washing: If the hair is washable, you can try washing it with mild shampoo and conditioner. Use lukewarm water and gently massage the shampoo into the hair. Rinse thoroughly and then apply conditioner, if needed. Avoid getting the doll’s body wet if it’s not meant to be submerged in water.

Detangling: For stubborn tangles, you can use a detangling spray or a mixture of water and fabric softener to soften the hair and make it easier to comb through.

Trimming: If the ends of the hair are frayed or damaged, you might need to trim them slightly to improve the overall appearance.

Styling: Once the hair is clean and detangled, you can style it as desired. You can use hair accessories like ribbons, bows, or clips to add a fresh look.

Heat styling (if applicable): If the doll’s hair is made of synthetic material, avoid using heat styling tools like curling irons or straighteners as they can melt or damage the hair. For natural hair dolls, you can use low heat settings if necessary, but be cautious not to overheat or damage the hair fibers.

Replacing the hair (if necessary): If the doll’s hair is beyond repair, you may need to consider replacing it entirely. There are tutorials available online for rerooting doll hair, or you can purchase replacement wigs or hairpieces.

Storage: After restoring the doll’s hair, store it properly to prevent tangling and damage. You can use a hairnet or wrap the hair in tissue paper to keep it neat and tidy.

Remember to be gentle when handling the doll’s hair to avoid causing further damage, and always test any cleaning or styling products on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure they won’t cause any adverse effects.
