Hair Care for 18 inch Dolls from American Girl, Gotz and Madame Alexander

NEW! Gotz Doll Hair Care and Style Tips on You-Tube at this link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt6EUSVpWBg


American Girl, Gotz and Madame Alexander tell us NOT to use heat on the doll's hair - that means no hair irons or hair dryers! It isn't real hair - it's synthetic and the heat can damage the synthetic "hair" strands.

Madame Alexander also cautions us NOT to use water on the hair . . . you can on American Girl and Gotz dolls BUT be sure you don't get water on the eyes (turns them silver)!


For combing - or brushing- the hair we'd receommend using a very small plastic brush like those that come with Ginny or Barbie dolls.

American Girl recommends that you comb the hair in small sections, start at the bottom of the hair portion and gently remove the tangles working up to the scalp. Then repeating and repeating! This method works well for Gotz and Madame Alexander dolls too.

There is a reason American Girl features a Hair Salon for Dolls at their stores - it's a common problem and not easy to fix . . . it often requires an adult's intervention! We took our Molly doll model in because her braids were getting pretty messy! As Millie is "hair challenged" it seemed the best solution - take a look at the blog piece here:



This is Molly with very messy hair . . . some of my friends say she's not really very bad BUT she didn't look good enough to be a model in our pictures any more - so she needed help!

Molly's hairdresser straps her in her red chair and covers her up so that her dress stays nice. Notice the little spray bottle . . . it's just water BUT never, ever get the water in her eyes or it will turn them silver!!

Molly is able to check out Nicki sitting in her chair for her hair appointment! Molly had to wait an hour in one of those little cubicle boxes (shown in the photo above) until it was time for her appointment.

One braid is done and she already looks better! The hairdresser said she could tell Molly was from the Pleasant Company days as her bangs are longer and hair is finer than the Molly's of today.

Almost finished! We got to pick out the color of her hair ribbons . . . red for Molly to go with her dress. She received lots of compliments on it - we call it Emily's Dress. Do you recognize it from the picture on the Brave Emily book?!

Here she is looking brand new!! We received a sheet of hair tips and some extra hair thingies. Molly was so good on this trip to the American Girl Place, she even got a Build A Bear from McDonalds!
