Hi, Last Tuesday when I had a snow day I decided to do an experiment with doll hair. I had two different pinterest tutorials and wanted to know what one was better. So I took two cheap, non-valuable dolls who needed hair help badly and tried a different tutorial on each. (Sorry the dolls are undressed because I did not want to get their clothes wet. I cropped as much of the photos as I could.)
This is the picture I took before I started. You can sort of tell their hair is a disaster by the way the braids lay.
This is their hair after I took it down and before it was brushed.
After I tried my best at getting all the knots out it still did not do much.
This is when I started my experiment – I used cool water and fabric softener in the red bowl and shampoo, conditioner and warm water in the other bowl. Red bowl yellow-orange bowl
After about an hour and a half I was able to determine the shampoo, conditioner and warm water worked better and was easier to get out of her hair. The fabric softener was harder to rinse out of her hair and did not untangle it as well. Though overall it did a good job untangling I wish it helped with the frizz. Though the one sight says totally plastic steamers will do that. I guess I will have to get one and try it out.
Have a great day. I hope to “talk” to you again soon.
