One of the most beautiful features of these dolls is their hair. Unfortunately, their hair can also be one of the worst parts. It can get dirty, frizzy and tangled.
Here are some hints to keep your favorite little girl’s doll looking beautiful.
Use the right brush – It is important to have a special brush just for the doll. If a child uses their own hairbrush on their doll, oils can be transferred to do the doll and will collect dust dulling the doll’s hair.
Velcro is the enemy – Most 18” doll clothing has Velcro fastenings. Put the doll’s hair in a ponytail before changing outfits to keep the Velcro from snagging the hair.
How to brush – When it is time for a doll to have her hair brushed start near the ends, and brush out her hair, using short, gentle strokes. Work your way up: ends, then the middle, then top, gently brushing out any tangles to avoid breaking strands. If the doll has curly hair, use a metal pick.
