Does this look familiar? If you have any daughters, you've run across this post and asked "How'd they get a picture of our doll?!"
|This isn't our Repunzal, but it looks EXACTLY the same... shouldn't her magical hair not tangle?|
Detangle doll hair! Go to beauty supply shop and got a wig brush. It has metal bristles with no little knobs on the ends. Supposed to glide through the hair with ease and no static that a plastic brush would cause. Also ran across several sites that made a solution of about 2 TBSP of fabric softener and the rest water - put this is a little travel spray bottle (Cookie & Claire)
Here's what I did:
Combined 2 tbsp of Downy and water in a large spray bottle - large is the only size we had around that house that was empty was I filled it about 1/4 of the way with water. Shake Shake Shake. Spray on Repunzal as you do with detangling spray on your own daughter and let sit for a minute or two. Instead of a wig brush (mostly because the closest beauty supply store is 55 min away) I used the plastic brush that came with her. Patience and lots of spraying later:
