Over the summer I came across an Elsa doll at a garage sale. I have many young cousins who would love an Elsa doll, so I adopted her. There was only one problem — Elsa had badly tangled hair. Elbow grease and a good brushing alone weren’t going to be enough to free her knotted locks. So I searched online and found several suggestions on how to get the tangles out. Below, I’ve complied the best methods for restoring doll hair to a tangle free state. Feel free to try it out! It may save you some time and money and give you the opportunity to play with your child. You can have a blast running a baby doll hair salon together!
First, I brushed out what tangles I could from Elsa’s hair with a good stiff bristled brush. Then I mixed 1/4 cup of fabric softener with very hot water and put it into a shallow baking dish. I let Elsa’s hair soak for about 15 minutes in the mixture, then I rinsed the hair thoroughly with hot water. I avoided getting water down the neck of the doll, since it can get caught in the body cavity. If your doll still has massive tangles, you can add leave-in-conditioner to the doll’s wet hair. Add conditioner a few drops at a time and work it in thoroughly to prevent oily hair. I combed Elsa’s hair while wet with a wide tooth comb and let it dry. And voila! Elsa was restored to her original beauty.
