Step by Step How to Re-Root Barbie or Kelly Doll Hair
Time For New Hair
Do you have a collection of dolls who are in good shape other than unsalvageable hair? Here is a step by step guide on how to remove the old hair and replace it with new.
You will need:
-Hair Rooting Tool (these are not easy to find, I found mine on eBay)
Removing the Old Hair
Start by cutting the hair as short as you can.
Remove the dolls head.
Pinch the head a little to expose the inside of skull.
Use tweezers to pull hair out From inside.
Once the hair has been removed, replace the head.
Open the bag of new hair.
Cut a strand to desired length. I used to measure each strand so all were the same length. This is a ridiculous waste of time. Eyeball the length. You can cut strands that are a little long when you are done.
Take the strand of hair and place the middle of the strand of hair in the notch of the hair rooting tool.
Punch the hair in one of the holes at the base of the dolls head.
Continue filling in the holes around the outside of the head, then work your way up to the top of the head.
You may take the head off and glue the hair on inside of head, but I've never found this necessary.
Enjoy your dolls new look!
