I usually try to avoid dolls with hair. Not because I do not think they are pretty (I do) but because I know my kids will not take care of it and I will end up spending a Saturday night brushing tangled doll hair. Like last night.
Beware mothers who buy dolls with hair, usually it is your job to fix it.
In my experience, there are 4 kinds of doll owners:
- The kind that doesn’t care if the doll looks like a Rastafarian.
- The kind that LOVES brushing doll hair and can’t wait for another knot to show up to fix.
- The kind that teaches their kids to love brushing doll hair and sits back and reaps the benefits.
- The kind that normally just throws the doll out when they look like a hoarder (unless the kids find out and cry until you fix it).
This was some very serious knotting. And if you have girls (or were a girl) you know there is nothing worse than knotty doll hair!
So, what to do? Well, this isn’t my first (tangled doll hair) rodeo. I come prepared.
What you will need to repair doll hair that has tangled:
- a good brush with plastic bristles (sturdy)
- a spray bottle with water and a few drops of fabric softner.
- hair ties
- hair clip
