gasp I like to play with dolls…
So, I own one vinyl doll. She is not cute. I hate the sculpt. She looks angry and is just impossible for me to pose. On top of it all, her hair is wrecked. Not like it wasn’t garbage when I got her, but still. Heaven forbid I hold her and mess with her. Her hair is trashed after like 3 months of having her. She was on sale for like $70. I got her to see if I could like vinyl. (I can like it btw.)
To be fair, she is the only doll I have put together right now so she gets all the holding, changing, and handling. I weighted her up to 10 lbs (I know, extreme to some), gave her a new body, and a silicone butt. She feels AMAZING! Her hair is just not cool.
I conditioned it with detangler, regular haor conditioner, and various other things. Absolutely nothing stopped the matting. So, I cut her hair today. It did make it somewhat better but I can’t cut it again. I don’t want to reroot her because my tender hands have never known the pain that is rooting really hard vinyl and I don’t want them to.
Is there anything I can really do for hair aside from remove it?
Also, some pictures I was playing with.
