I have a few questions about washing (but not boil perming) doll hair:

 

1. If I wash Lagoona's hair with warm water, will the curl fall out? I want it to be straight because her curly hair is so frizzy and tangeled out of the box.

 

2. Has anyone washed DT draculaura's weird pigtails out so they fall flat? if so, anyone have pics?

 

I'm sort of new the doll collecting world and I just washed the chunky icky gel out of my DOTD Cleo's hair and it's so much more manageable. I think I'm  going to rewash it with some comditioner to soften it up because there's still little bits of gel here and there but I just wanted to ask before I wash Lagoona or Drac.

I don't know about the pigtails. They look just like the ones on my Winx Club Musa doll. No matter what I did her hair (which never had glue in it) never fell straight. I didn't try to wash it with warm water (it didn't occur to me at the time.) But it could be different depending on the doll.

It will be straighter, but it will still be kind of frizzy. She's not at all like my Sailor Moon Dolls.

Use very hot water. My tap water isn't hot enough so I use an electric kettle to get the water bubbling.

I always undress my dolls when I fix their hair. I don't like getting their clothes wet.

Poor the water into a bowl and dip her hair in almost to the scalp.

Then use liberal amounts of conditioner and a fine tooth comb. Start combing at the bottom and work your way up.

She will lose a bit of hair and that's fine (and to be expected)

If you want it wavy I suggest braiding her hair. Put her in her stand and place her in front of a fan. (Never, ever, ever use a blow dryer!! Not even on low heat.)

It you want it straight, comb it every so often as it dries.

If her bangs get wet or messy from the process, dip her in the hot water bangs first and style them. You may have to use some sort of clip to keep them in place.

After the hair dries you can take some scissors and trim any obviously too long strands hairs. There shouldn't be more then a few though.

If you take out the pigtails her hair will just stick up in the same shape as pigtails but messier, I had a winx club musa doll and i still do, I took out her pigtails and they just stuck right up, maybe if you boil wash her hair and contsantly brush and comb her hair while her hair is in the water it will fix some of it.

how come u cant use a blow dryer?

I have the answer to number 2. I used boiling water to straighten Draculaura dead tireds hair. It works but I had to do it a few times to get the hair on the bottom to go flat.
I'd link pics, but I'm on my phone. The photo of DT is in my photos. "Agoonas hair is thicker and I haven't tried it yet but pouring boiling water on the crown of her head may work.

With my DT Draculaura, one pig tail at a time I took it down, wet it and brushed down as much as possible to make lower pig tails. This worked better than I'd expected, but since her hair looks like it was cut after it was styled it would look a bit odd to try and restyle it without any hair ties.
