Last year for Christmas the little ladies of the house received American Girl dolls. I adore them myself so I was thrilled when they each wanted one.....there may have been some gentle persuasion...but I admit to nothing!
When the dolls arrived, I seriously felt like a kid. They were so pretty, and perfect and....well, smiley! Sadly, the doll I bought for my oldest had curly hair and after just a few months of use her hair was all sorts of nasty. I even tried the fabric softener trick which worked for a little while but went quickly back to "ratty".
While perusing the net a few months ago, I curiously Googled: "how to re-wig american doll". Winning!
You know what? It's totally possible! And you know what else?? It was pretty darn easy too!
Here's my process. Bear in mind the original wig was trashed so I didn't want to keep it. If you're wanting to be able to switch out wigs the "scalping" of the doll will have to be gently done. Here's where I got our wig.
Pull the rest of the wig cap down over the ring of glue.
Maneuver it until it looks right.
You're still seeing the bald doll in your brain aren't you? I don't know if it will ever leave mine.
