This is Celia. She is a much-loved baby in our home. She was a gift for Lydia's first Christmas. She also has c-r-a-z-y hair.
I have tried to comb it, and had very little luck making her look presentable. Lydia says she's just a "rock star." Apparently, rock stars have crazy hair.
I saw a post on Pinterest about rescuing doll hair. It was recommended to use a Wig Wire Brush and diluted fabric softener to tame doll tresses.
I ordered the brush a few weeks ago, but since I switched to the fabric softener granules, I didn't have any liquid fabric softener. Today, I finally remembered to buy a bottle, as well as a small squirt bottle.
I did a half and half solution of liquid fabric softener and water and sprayed it on Celia's hair. Then, I started brushing with the wire brush. I ended up wetting her hair pretty thoroughly, but you can see the results below!
Next, I'm going to take on some of the Barbies in our house!
