Does anyone know what will fix a doll's greasy, sticky glue seepage hair?  I don't really want to use tea tree oil (I don't know if it works, but I heard it does) because the smell really bothers me.

Someone recommended talcum powder both in the hair and in the head.  Has anyone tried that and if so, does it work?

I have tried using woolite and fabric softener to wash my doll's hair in lukewarm water and it doesn't seem to help at all.  I have heard that dish soap with degreaser in it also doesn't really work and the problem just comes back.

Anyone know a permanent fix?  Thanks!

I think I bought this at a dollar tree...or something like that...maybe it was a family dollar but anyways.
It's called "LA's Totally Awesome Orange All Purpose Degreaser" it's an orange squirt bottle and it really helps!Well so far at least..I got Twyla the other day and poor Twyla suffered from bad glue seepage and so I used that spray on her hair,left it in for 2 minutes and then washed it out.
Her hair is AMAZINGLY soft now.
This thing is my dolls savior.
I think it works best(or is at least my preferred method )

Thank you.  I am willing to try anything at this point.  Do you notice the glue seepage continuing after you use this product and does the hair get greasy again?

You're welcome!:D
No I tried it on a few others and I didn't really see more glue seepage after that.

The seepage will probably return-- the wax/glue that's inside the head is still there, even if you clean the hair... so over time, given the correct conditions, it will return...

Any idea on a permanent fix that does not require rerooting?

there really isn't one short of removing all the hair and rerooting... the wax/glue in the head will always be there, so there's always a chance of the stuff leaching into the hair....  You just may need to wash the hair again every few years or so, depending upon how quickly it gets into the hair.    Storing the dolls in a cool environment should help-- as the glue warms, it gets softer and probably facilitates the gunk getting into the hair...
