How to Make an American Girl Doll Look New Again
You know how doll hair gets to be rather frizzy after a while? It starts out all smooth and shiny and then a few years down the road, the poor toy looks like it stuck its finger into a light socket. And no amount of brushing fixes the problem. It just goes from tangly frizz to less tangly frizz.
The other day my nieces were over and we got down our bin of ponies, which contains two dolls too. So, my nieces and I watched some video tutorials about fixing doll hair.
Luckily, we came across a tutorial that just called for boiling water and that seemed totally doable. Once the hair was all smoothed out, we towel dried it, combed it so it was laying the way wanted, and then let it dry. So, I gave the doll a little trim with my hair-cutting scissors. And voila! Her hair is SO much more manageable than before. We also tried doing shampoo and conditioner on the hair, which seems to slightly enhance the effect of the boiling water.
However, I think the boiling water is really the key. Just be careful not to melt the hair! This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed. Do you think this could work on build a bear doll hair??
If it works, great! If not, well, her hair was already dead. The water cools down pretty quickly, I found. Hi, I collect for myself and resale toys for others and came across a Ron Stoppable Toy and ordered a Kim Possible Toy to complete the set. I tried the boiling water on just the hair, combed it down, squoze out excess water and let it air dry. Lo and behold the hair settled back to how it was in a package and I just combed it over and out with a thin comb and it filled in nicely.
Thank you for the article, I will remember that if I ever come across another wild hair doll again! I tried on my rainbow dash doll after 4 washes and a trim at the end. Worked miracles. Thank you. Never using 2 in 1 again! Thanks for sharing this information!! Before the boiling water I did wash and condition the hair with shampoo and conditioner. And was able to easily brush through the hair! The hair is now silky and shiny! Really pretty!
It is amazing how that boiling water works! I never would have thought of doing that! Thanks again! Omg, how did you know what I was looking this up for? Just did all my old little ponies hair with your advice, and it looks wonderful!
Finally, 33 years later, they all have straight hair! I winnnn!!! We did this last night with about 15 JEM dolls from the eighties and it worked remarkably well — the hair is like new on both the straight and textured hair. Thank you so much for this tutorial!
This would make me nervous just based on the temperature of boiling water. What if it melts? I purchased some used dolls on Ebay and may need to give this a try. Thanks for the tip! Low stakes! I just let it sit in there while I combed it out…so it sat however long the combing process took. My 12 year old daughter has one from when she was seven, and the hair was so awful and frizzy.
We did this, and wow. I highly recommend. My 12 year old got her first when she was seven. I did this and her hair was like new I did it four times and it even helped the ends. Stacy, AG says water only? Well, boiling water woukd be water only, does it state what temperarure? Will this work on an Our Generation Doll? I have a doll that was in critical condition a few weeks ago and if not for YouTube,would be in the trash.
And how long does it have to soak? Could you do a trim on the ends? And it worked like a charm! Just like a human,dolls may get split ends or limp,frizzy hair. A good trim was perfect!! Thank you for the advice! Doll-from-hell did not get this. Thank you so much again! Well, I made the mistake of brushing her hair with MY round brush and it got all tangled!!!
After we finally got it out, her hair was all frizzy and ruined! I was devastated! I was also 9……LOL! Wish I knew this trick back then! She buys dolls and ponies at garage sales and does some amazing work with their hair!
Thanks so much! Wish I had known of this fix when I was a kid! I loved my Crissie and Violet—grow-your-hair dolls but after so much playing with them, their hair was gosh-darn awful! Experience is really the best teacher. I was 5, my doll had straight hair, but I wanted it to be curly. Suffice to say I could have used this information.
I tried it on an Our Generation doll knock off AG. I never even thought of boiling water. Now how did someone ever first think of trying that? So for me, it was more about helping that particular head of hair be what it was supposed to be. Which is how I view human hair too. Restoring it implies that straight and smooth is the original way that particular dolls hair was to begin with….
I dont see any thing that had to do with discounting the value of other textured or wavy haired dolls. Where were you ten years ago when I needed this!
Haha, guess I will file this away for when I have daughters. Hi Gladys! Time went so fast! Gladys, I had the same reaction!
My favorite thing to do with my sisters and friends was playing with My Little Ponies…. Those ponies came with us outside, in the tub, on camping trips! We each had a bin full of horses!!! I love hearing that your daughters love them! Wow, this is super neat! If only we knew this little hack. Have a great day! Lisa, thanks so much for that great explanation. I have a whole bin of my old childhood dolls that I plan on passing down to my daughter she will be one this Saturday.
I wonder if this would work on my hair?

Wow, this is awesome! I've got a couple of dolls with frizzy hair, and now I must try this. I can't believe the difference, the ringlets are so cute! Thanks for sharing. Wow, I'm really impressed with the results!
Brainy Bunny is the mother of two. Together they read, craft, and play games for fun. American Girl dolls are so lovely, but they're very expensive. If you don't have the small fortune it costs to spend to bring your daughter's doll to the American Girl store for a full beauty treatment, do it yourself at home for a fraction of the cost. You can make an American Girl doll look like new again for the cost of a wide metal bristle brush and some things you already have around the house.

How To Repair Frizzy American Girl Doll Hair
For best styling results, lightly mist your doll's hair with water as needed before you brush or pick it. Use just enough water to make the hair easier to work with. Be sure not to get water in her eyes—they may rust! When brushing or picking your doll's hair for the first time, some loose hair will come off. This is normal and will lessen over time. Never use styling products such as gels, mousses, or sprays as they can damage your doll's hair over time.
