A Doll Cleaning Tutorial
Wow, this is awesome! I've got a couple of dolls with frizzy hair, and now I must try this. I can't believe the difference, the ringlets are so cute!
Thanks for sharing. Wow, I'm really impressed with the results! I wouldn't have thought that there was anything that could be done to doll hair that reached THAT state. Now to go rummaging through the box of my childhood toys - I'm sure there are quite some treasures to be updated. I recalled having had some old "rainbow ponies", the predecessors of today's "my little ponies", but I think they all had pretty tangled manes when I was done with them.
This post is awesome! My sister and I have so many old toys that have that same sad hair and I'm definitely going to try this on them! I can't believe how good Pinky Pie looks at the end! Back in the 80's when I had Barbies and My Little Ponies, I always brushed their hair with the little brushes that came with them.
It was definitely my thing plus we would use straight pins to put Barbie's hair up, just push those pins right through her head. And that's why I was also so devastated to see the state of Stephanie's Barbies and Ponies during recess at school.
All matted and tangled and dirty and gross. That's certainly better than imagining Stephanie being the female version of Sid from Toy Story. That's impressive, Jen! Let it dry overnight and looks like a new pony! I'll have to give this a try. Although I've occasionally caught my daughter using her own spray hair detangler on her dolls, and it seems to do the trick.
But now I really want to try curling the hair! Trust me, doing the fabric softener or even watered down hair detangler makes a world of difference. I have done it for many dolls and ponies. I love all the tips for getting the curl back in. My oldest has an American Girl doll and the curl has died. I don't think I will do the flat iron but maybe curlers in damp hair overnight would do the trick.
I've seen tutorials on YouTube for fixing AG doll hair. They recommend almost boiling water, though of course you have to be careful not to get it in the eyes. I think they put the doll so her hair is in the sink and then pour the boiling water over it.
Or dunk the hair in a pot of water. For AG dolls, you wash, condition, put in perm rods of desired size, pour nearly boiling water over each curler while holding doll upsidedown , and wrap with a towel. Let sit till dry. Remove curlers and style however you want it. Works wonders. This is pretty neat. Had no idea that plastic doll hair could be de-frizzed. Remember when there were no "kid" Barbies and you had to use Strawberry Shortcake dolls as Barbie kids?
Yeah, I'm that old. You did an awesome job on Pinkie Pie's mane and tail, Jen. I hope John was adequately impressed by your pony-styling skills. When I was little I found a bunch of my barbies and dolls hairs had become pretty matted after umpteen years of playing with them. I used baby shampoo and the "no more tangles" conditioner spray on them and they relaxed a lot.
I don't think I managed to make any impressive hair styles though. I'll have to remember this when my son's toys become too matted. Looks great!
The curls will set up as precisely as the hair was wrapped into the curlers. Another option is doing the boil perm method that was done on the tail. Boil perm is a misleading term because the hot water will set any style you have it in. If you have curlers, it'll be curly.
If it's in braids, you get a crimped effect. If you put a rubber band around the bangs they'll be flat. But yeah, once I learned about boil perms a whole new world opened up. I've apparently led a very sheltered life, lol, I've never heard of boiler perms! Thanks for the enlightenment! As far as fabric softener is concerned, my mom and I are allergic to man-made fragrances, so we use white vinegar instead of store brand fabric softener, and it works just fine.
Maybe it would work with the doll hair too? As someone previously said, cheap hair conditioner works wonders. I use it all the time with My Little Ponies. I usually wet their hair, rub some conditioner in, then let it sit for 20 minutes to an hour usually I'm doing a lot of ponies at one time. THEN I'll comb through it--makes it much smoother and easier, and their hair ends up being silky and smooth! I don't mess with it much after that, but it would make it a lot easier to style and curl.
I bought a wig brush for my girls' dolls. Whenever they open a new doll, they know to just get rid of the little brushes that come with them since those are a big part of the problem to begin with. They only use the wig brush to brush their hair. This prevents a lot of the trouble to begin with. If it stars looking a little bad, I just use the same detangling spray on the doll's hair that I use on my girls' hair.
A few of their friends didn't think they ever played with their dolls because the hair still looks so nice. I need to try this with the Growing Hair Crissy doll I saved from my childhood. Shutterfly and Pinkie Pie are definitely my two favorite Ponies ;.
I wonder if using the straight iron on the tips before you then curled it might tamp down some of the friz? Regardless, this looks amazing! Wow, I need to try this on some of my old Grand Champions! I have at least two that need this treatment on their tails pretty badly. One, strangely the oldest one of the bunch, never got any tangles it its tail no matter how much I played with it. I have no idea what its hair was made of but I wish the others had had it too--it still looks as good as it did in the box twenty years ago.
Now I just have to locate them in the garage easier said than done. Hmmm I wonder if this method would work on a Disney Animator's doll I can say that it does - I used foam rollers on a Disney Animator Aurora's messy bangs, then submerged them in was-just-boiling water.
They curled up adorably, and held. Yes, my first thought was "you can't mention sticker removal and not tell us how you did it!
I don't know what our illustrious jen used, but there is a product called goo gone that could pull the stickers right off and kill the gummy residue. It's whole purpose is to remove residue from stickers and tape and such, after all. I'd spot-check for color damage first, tho, especially if you're dealing with a painted section eyes, rump. I've had success with olive oil, and most oils and even peanut butter should work.
WD, too. I usually follow that with dish soap, you know, to de-grease. I have had wonderful results with a product called Un-do. You can find it in most Michael's or other craft stores. It takes the sticker off without leaving any sticky residue behind. Another option is using hand sanitizer.
The active ingredient is alcohol, but because it's in gel form it doesn't evaporate quickly, so you can put it on and leave it for several minutes and scrape off. You might need to do it more than once but you don't have to worry about having to de-grease or deal with any leftover residue.
Wish I could show you the photos of the MLP I rehabbed last year - a super long hair Rainbow Flash who's mane and tail were almost completely dreadlocked with random objects added in It was a mission, but she now looks almost like new.
Shampoo and condition, gentle comb while conditioner is still in, leave with conditioner in for at least a couple of hours, rinse well, squeeze dry with a towel, flat iron carefully then wrap around neck or hind leg while still hot and hold in place overnight. Note that this won't work for all doll hair or even all generations of MLP's - some are a lot more heat sensitive than others and some can react to particular shampoo's or conditioners, so do a strand test first if you're not sure.
Really badly fuzzied ends probably can't be entirely straightened, but often the ends are uneven anyway and need a tiny trim which can help.
I found it invaluable when collecting them cheaply from thrift shops etc for my MLP obsessed niece. Just, uh, the snowmen!

I have a large collection of AG dolls and the majority of them came to me secondhand. I love a good deal and pick up abused dolls whenever I find them. Over the years I have learned how to repair almost every issue I have encountered. They are dirty, but overall condition is pretty good. That hair is a little wild though!

Brainy Bunny is the mother of two. Together they read, craft, and play games for fun. American Girl dolls are so lovely, but they're very expensive. If you don't have the small fortune it costs to spend to bring your daughter's doll to the American Girl store for a full beauty treatment, do it yourself at home for a fraction of the cost. You can make an American Girl doll look like new again for the cost of a wide metal bristle brush and some things you already have around the house. Take a small bowl, and put a tablespoon or two of baking soda in it.

For best styling results, lightly mist your doll's hair with water as needed before you brush or pick it. Use just enough water to make the hair easier to work with. Be sure not to get water in her eyes—they may rust! When brushing or picking your doll's hair for the first time, some loose hair will come off. This is normal and will lessen over time.
Но если не считать его изрядно устаревших представлений о рыцарстве, Дэвид, по мнению Сьюзан, вполне соответствовал образцу идеального мужчины. Внимательный и заботливый, умный, с прекрасным чувством юмора и, самое главное, искренне интересующийся тем, что она делает. Чем бы они ни занимались - посещали Смитсоновский институт, совершали велосипедную прогулку или готовили спагетти у нее на кухне, - Дэвид всегда вникал во все детали. Сьюзан отвечала на те вопросы, на которые могла ответить, и постепенно у Дэвида сложилось общее представление об Агентстве национальной безопасности - за исключением, разумеется, секретных сторон деятельности этого учреждения. Основанное президентом Трумэном в 12 часов 01 минуту 4 ноября 1952 года, АНБ на протяжении почти пятидесяти лет оставалось самым засекреченным разведывательным ведомством во всем мире.

Сердце говорило ей, что она должна помочь Стратмору, но. Повернувшись в полном отчаянии, она ожидала услышать шум смертельной борьбы на полу, но все было тихо. Все вдруг сразу же смолкло: как если бы Хейл, сбив коммандера с ног, снова растворился в темноте. Сьюзан ждала, вглядываясь во тьму и надеясь, что Стратмор если и пострадал, то не сильно.
Он не мог отказаться. - Ты права, - проворчал Стратмор. - Поэтому я его и попросил.
Когда он ее нашел, каблук его ботинка громко ударился о кафельную плитку пола. Сьюзан почувствовала, как напряглось все его тело. Они вступили в опасную зону: Хейл может быть где угодно. Вдали, за корпусом ТРАНСТЕКСТА, находилась их цель - Третий узел.
Беккер покровительственно улыбнулся и перевел взгляд на дверь в ванную. - А у Росио. Капельки Росы. Лицо мужчины из мертвенно-бледного стало красным. - Вы знаете Капельку Росы? - Вытерев пот со лба рукавом халата, он собирался что-то сказать, но тут отворилась дверь в ванную.
Сплошная мистификация. Блестящий замысел. Выходит, Стратмор был зрителем теннисного матча, следящим за мячом лишь на одной половине корта. Поскольку мяч возвращался, он решил, что с другой стороны находится второй игрок.
