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.

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.
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.
