Steps To Fix Curly Doll Hair
Start with a clean slate. Make sure your doll’s hair is clean and free of any knots or tangles before you start straightening it. You can use mild shampoo and conditioner to do this.
- Fill a bowl with hot water (not boiling) and place your wide tooth comb in it. Leave the comb in the water for a few minutes to soften the bristles.
- Start at the bottom of the doll’s hair and work your way up, carefully combing through any knots or tangles.
- Once the hair is free of tangles, apply a generous amount of conditioner to the hair.
- Use the wide tooth comb to distribute the conditioner through the hair evenly.
- Leave the conditioner for a few minutes before rinsing it with lukewarm water.
- Towel dry the doll’s hair and then brush it with a fine tooth comb to detangle it.
- Divide the hair into sections and clip them up out of the way.
- Start with one section of hair and apply a generous amount of gel to it. Use the comb to distribute the gel through the hair evenly.
- Place the hair between the two heated plates of the hair straightener and close it.
- Run the straightener down the length of the hair a few times until the hair is straight.
- Repeat this process with each section of hair until all of the doll’s hair is straight.
- Use a doll hair spray to hold the style in place.
- Let the hair cool, then brush it out to remove any remaining gel.
- Style the hair as desired.
