  1. Cut the hair ties

    Use a pair of manicure scissors to cut any elastic and ribbons in the hair. This makes them easier to remove especially in severely tangled hair. Be careful not to cut any of the hair.

  2. Comb the hair

    Using a wide-toothed comb, gently comb the ends, making your way towards the top. Tease the tangles as you go. Working from the top-down breaks the hair and damages your comb.

  3. Soak the hair

    Pour undiluted fabric softener into a container and soak the doll hair for a few hours. Do not use dyed or scented softener if your child has sensitive skin.

  4. Rinse the hair

    Rinse the hair thoroughly with water. Be sure to remove all traces of fabric softener. Brush the hair with a wig brush to remove the tangles.

  5. Dry hair

    Air-dry the doll's hair. You can speed up the process by placing the doll on a windowsill facing the sun. Do not use a hair dryer, which can melt the fibers of the synthetic hair.
