I found another great product at Sally Beauty Supply that I had to share with you!
I picked up this Maplelea Alexi doll secondhand, and as you can see her hair was a tangled mess! I was looking for help with what do to with her hair as it was so matted. I was afraid to start brushing, because I was worried I would pull out most of the hair from her wig.
So I took a trip to Sally’s to see what they had. I thought that I would try this detangling spray for hair extensions. There were a few promises on the bottle; “refreshes and softens”, “helps prevent dryness and breakage”. I hoped that at least one these promises would be fulfilled!
So I spritzed down Alexi’s and went to work. I started brushing from the bottom up in small sections, with my looper brush.
The results were amazing! She doesn’t even look like the same doll! I actually started using this product on any doll before I brush their hair. The spray helps to loosen and tangles, adds some moisture to the hair, and smooths flyaways.
The last time that I was at the American Girl store I noticed that the hair stylist misted the doll’s hair prior to styling. I feel that this is the best practice if you want to keep your doll looking her best. You don’t have to use the detangling spray prior to brushing your doll’s hair, a spray bottle with plain water will work too.
