I saw this on pinterest about detangling your dolls’ hair with fabric softener, so I thought I’d try it.
After all, with four daughters in the house, ranging in age from 17 to 5, we have some nasty-haired dollies around here.
<< I chose these two dolls to receive the honors.
There were a few different methods mentioned of using the fabric softener, all requiring a solution of half Downy/half water. I could dunk the doll’s head, spray the doll’s hair, or dip a comb in the solution.
The problem was, there was not ONE of these ideas that didn’t require me to spend a bunch of time working tangles out of a doll’s hair with a plastic comb.
Not exactly something I want to spend a TON of time on, you know?
I got started with the easier doll, the brunette Barbie. I think she’s “Teresa”?
I dipped the comb in the Downy water and combed her hair. It was boring. I lost interest halfway through and the extremely FRESH!!! scent of the fabric softener started to make me feel sick. Still, she didn’t come out looking too bad.
Then I pulled Jasmine out of her Downy dunk.
Does she look like she’s enjoying a spa day, or being drowned? I’m not sure…
Her hair still looked AWFUL. I mean, this doll has one giant dreadlock on the back of her head. The only difference now was that her hair was dripping blue FRESHNESS!!! all over the place. Ugh.
I halfheartedly combed the edges of Jasmine’s hair.
She stared at me drunkenly. Or maybe it was the Downy FRESH!!! fumes.
Then I gave up. I have better things to do here.
Like, I don’t know…ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING ELSE!
