How to Restore Lammily Doll Hair

When we released the first Lammily doll in 2014, the soft hair was one of the first things kids noticed. However, we all have bad hair days and Lammily is no exception.

So, we thought of sharing a tutorial on how to turn a bad hair day into a good one!

We asked Alyssa Marotta, who restores dolls and offer custom painted dolls on Etsy, to create a tutorial for how to give Traveler Lammily an awesome hairday.

Please note that the tutorial uses boiling water and scissors, so adult supervision is required.

    I do not consider myself an expert by any means, but I also do restore quite a bit of doll hair. I have never used a blow dryer because I am afraid it will melt! Good to know that it can be used. I simply let the hair dry overnight. Also, if the hair has a lot of “poofiness” an the root, I will hold it in place with a plastic hat or wrap it in plastic wrap and band it to hold it in place while it is drying. This works really well for flattening bangs. Also, I have restored several dolls with curly hair by washing and conditioning it as you show with this doll, only I don’t comb it out. Instead if finger comb it and I have very good results. I would not blow dry a doll’s hair with curly hair. Lammily doll hair is very high quality in my opinion, so I haven’t had to restore any of their hair yet!

    Thanks for this tutorial. I am amazed at how soft and lustrous Sally’s hair is now. I dipped her hair in the boiling water 3 times though – it was hard work getting a particular kink out of the back.
