So I just took off the hat of my brand-new Vandala Doubloons, annnnd... she is basically bald underneath. It looks like they really under-rooted her scalp and it looks dreadful. 

Has anyone else had this issue? I'm gonna return her in hopes of getting a better scalp root, but man, if this is a common defect I am bummed

Oh that's not cool!

I hope it's not common for her but just happened to be a defect.

Hope you can return her for a better one.

pics please?

I've had some dolls with hair a bit thinner than I'd like, and my Vandala isn't as full as I'd like. Which is funny, because her hair looks really full. XP


I don't know if Ru's is worse, but hopefully other dolls aren't too bad. ^_^

I actually have a theory on why dolls with headbands, hats ect are always thinnly rooted where ever said accessory is. I think when theyre producing them there isnt enough time for the glue in the head to dry so when they push on whatever accessory it pulls out the plugs causing bald spots. Then again you would expect to see the holes so who knows if thats actually what happens.

I'll still be buying her because I think she's a gorgeous doll, but it's too bad her hair is rooted that way. Maybe it's a fluke thing and it won't be so bad with all of them? That's wishful thinking though. I probably won't be taking her hat off anyway.

Angela, yeah mine is about that bad. I finally got around to photos. 

I think I'll be returning this Vandala in hopes of a better root job, on the off chance it is a fluke. If not, I'll just buy some matching hair and re-root her to my liking :p

Ugh that must be so frustrating.
My daughter and I each have a Vandala and the hair is consistent and nice with or without the hat. No thin spots.

It's good to know that not all the Vandala dolls are that bad.

Hopefully, it's just a few who have this problem.

@kinda_whatever it's ridiculous to assume that they would purposefully root a doll thin. It was a factory mistake on one doll.

Woo, I found a Vandala whose hair is much fuller! I checked the tops of their heads through the packaging this time--it's actually pretty easy to see it with the see-through hat. A couple of them looked sparse but a few more seemed much better, so it seems to be kind of hit or miss. But at least it IS possible to sort of check their hair before you put down the cash for the doll. 

Thank you for this info!

I'll make sure to check this when purchasing Vandala :)
