Specialty retail stores, such as DollyHair.com and RestoreDoll.com, sell doll hair. These stores supply doll hair and related items, such as doll hair needles, rerooting kits, repair kits and doll paints, to doll artists who create their own handmade dolls or doll collectors who undertake doll restoration projects.
There are several types of doll hair, which include nylon, saran, acetate, polypropylene and kanekalon. These are all synthetic doll-grade hair that can be curled, straightened or boil permed to achieve the style desired. Barbie dolls most often use saran hair, while Hasbro dolls and the My Little Ponies use nylon hair.
