Let's Go To The Hairdresser!



Most of the time, you find yourself having a Sindy doll with dirty, dry hair, slightly cut with no curls at all. All the Sindy collectors would agree that it is about time for a visit to the hairdresser.

First of all, examine if there are any hair plugs missing from your doll. If yes, then this is the right time to replace them. Restyling your doll's hair is the easiest thing to do and the results are really amazing. You will only need a good hair conditioner, a couple of big sized straws, some toilet paper and boiled water. I use Kerastase Solaire cream conditioner to make the hair softer but you can use any conditioner you want.

After cleaning your doll's hair, it is time to start the process of "perming" the hair. You take as many hair plugs as you wish and you wrap toilet paper around the edges. Then you roll the plug around the straw and secure it with a hair grip. When you have finished, your doll will look like this :

Then you put your doll's head inside a bowl with boiled water (see next pic) :

Don't be afraid. No harm will be done to the doll. Leave your Sindy inside the boiled water for about 3-5 minutes and then put her head inside a bowl with cold water. 2-3 minutes are enough.
After that take your doll and dry her with a cloth and leave the hair to dry without removing the straws.


I suppose you could use your hair dryer, but I prefer leaving the hair dry naturally.
After removing the straws your doll will look like this :

Use your hands or a comb to give the desirable form to your doll's hair and your Sindy will be simply astonishing!

Tips
  • A wet comb would help a lot and you will be amazed by the results!
Enjoy!
