While it may seem like an odd subject for Hairfinder, where we primarily deal with people's hair care and styling needs, the care of dolls hair is related. It relates to things like wigs, which are often made using similar materials to those found in dolls hair. In fact, some dolls are made with human hair, which creates a genuine crossover between the care needs of dolls' hair and wigs.
The following is intended to be an informative look at the types of doll hair that are likely to be found and some tips for caring for that hair. However, you should be aware that if you have a doll that is very old, and is collectible or has inherent value, you will want to seek professional assistance in restoring and cleaning the doll's hair. It would be tragic to destroy your doll's value because you made an amateur attempt at care or restoration.
If, however, you feel that the rewards for doing it yourself outweigh any risks (if they exist) then we hope the following information will be of use to you. At the very least, we hope that you will find the information interesting:
