Monster High dolls have various hairstyles, and their hair can sometimes become tangled or messy with play. Here are steps to fix Monster High doll hair and restore it to a neater appearance:
Materials You’ll Need:
- Wide-toothed comb or doll hair brush
- Mild shampoo or dish soap
- Warm water
- Small bowl or container
- Hair conditioner (optional)
- Detangling spray (optional)
- Prepare a Cleaning Solution:
- In a small bowl or container, mix a few drops of mild shampoo or dish soap with warm water. You can also add a small amount of hair conditioner to help soften the hair. Mix it well to create a soapy solution.
- Detangle the Hair:
- Carefully comb or brush the doll’s hair using a wide-toothed comb or a doll hair brush. Start from the tips of the hair and work your way upward to remove any tangles or knots. Be gentle to avoid damaging the hair or the doll’s scalp.
- Wash the Hair:
- Dip the doll’s hair into the soapy water, ensuring that the hair is fully submerged. Gently swish the hair around in the water to allow the soap to penetrate and clean the strands.
- Rinse the Hair:
- Rinse the doll’s hair thoroughly under running warm water to remove the soap and any dirt or residue. Be sure to hold the doll by the body to prevent water from getting into the doll’s body.
- Towel Dry:
- Gently pat the doll’s hair with a clean towel to remove excess water. Avoid vigorous rubbing, as it can cause damage to the hair.
- Style the Hair:
- While the hair is still damp, you can use the comb or brush to style it as desired. If you want to straighten it, gently pull the hair straight while it’s still wet and allow it to air dry.
- Detangling Spray (Optional):
- If the hair remains tangled or frizzy, you can use a doll-specific detangling spray to help smooth and manage the hair. Spray it lightly onto the hair and comb through to detangle.
- Allow to Air Dry:
- Let the doll’s hair air dry naturally. Avoid using heat tools like hairdryers, as they can damage doll hair made of synthetic materials.
- Final Styling:
- Once the hair is completely dry, you can do any final styling or add accessories as desired.
- To keep the doll’s hair looking its best, periodically groom and style it, and store the doll in a clean and dry environment to prevent dust and dirt buildup.
Remember that Monster High doll hair is often made of synthetic materials, and while you can improve its appearance, it may not return to its original factory condition. Be patient when detangling and styling the hair, and handle the doll with care to avoid any damage to the doll’s head or body.
