Madame Alexander 18" doll
Let me just say here that I feel the Madame Alexander dolls
Have truly lovely faces. The hair is not the quality
of the AG dolls, but in every other way they are
a great 18" doll.
Found this girl at a thrift store for $1.50.
Her hair was in bad shape.
And, she was a little grimy.
So, hairwash. Downy dunk for just an hour or two.
While her hair was soaking I gave her a baking soda bath.
You can see here how much dirt came off!
While her hair is still slightly damp I used
a ceramic (NOT METAL!) flat iron set on lowest setting.
Small sections at a time I smoothed her hair.
Here is a straightened strand.
(NOTE: I am now recommending using wig
shampoo and conditioner, instead of the downy dunk!!)
AND HERE SHE IS!!
Her hair is in a layered style.
As usual I was going to sell her, but
Sophie named her
