Hey Ya’ll I’d like to buy some nice mohair. I’m determined to begin rooting even if it’s just combo hair. Why I am so afraid to ruin a doll is beyond me but it’s a new year. Anyway, suggestions on good quality hair that is nice but I can’t break the bank esp if I just don’t get the rooting…TY!!! PS I’m mailing looking for med-dark brown and black. Maybe strawberry blonde?
@Rainbowbabies has the bestest hair ever lol If you’ll be doing combo hair then I would recommend just getting 1/4 oz from her which is cheap and amazing. I rooted this baby pretty thick with 1/4 oz of her kid mohair and I still have enough left for another small head.
I use Ruby Red curve, which you can get on here. It is sold by the 1/4 oz. for about $15. It is not the best, but I think that it is plenty good to learn with. Here are a couple of my dolls that I used Ruby Red on:
It isn’t very fine, so it is easy to see where each hair is. The downside is that it can sometimes be pluggy and need to be thinned which may cause an area to need a touch up. I also experience significant waste, maybe 10%. I don’t know how much of that is the hair or how much of that is me
A Plus Mohair and Silk Effex, both on FB. Excellent hair.
I get a little more than two babies out of a 1/4 oz, btw. Forgot to mention that
@Rainbowbabies is my favorite. And you aren’t really saving money if you buy ruby red. A lot of ruby red goes to waste. The cost isn’t much less. It’s harder to root. And it tends to look dry and frizzy. Good quality mohair creates very little waste. It roots easily. It doesn’t break. And it looks like really baby hair. Spend $5 more to get the good stuff. It’s worth it.
