WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS UNCLOTHED DOLL PICTURES. Since AG dolls have all cloth bodies, I don't think this should be an issue but if this offends you feel free to skip this post. :)
A while ago, I realized that my Ruthie's lovely curls were a hot mess, especially compared to their original style:
I brushed them out, which really didn't help.
My solution: hot water in a bowl and a wide-toothed comb.
I took each of Ruthie's curls, wet the comb, and combed the hair until it was damp.
When each section was damp and untangled, I curled the ends of her hair in the direction they naturally wanted to curl and secured them with jaw clips.
I dunked the ends of her hair into the water and let them soak for around 30 seconds at a time.
Then I wrapped Ruthie in a towel so her hair wouldn't drip onto her body.
Once her curls had dried a little, I took them out of the curlers and let them dry over night.
Here they are all dry:
And after a little finger-fluffing, in a photo story for my AG Dolls' blog.
Don't they look so much better?
